Great event, even though the rain.

Marcel with his carrera was leaving everyone behind by a very substantial margin with a best time of 58.3 clean in pouring rain. Amazing driving.

Got a chance to drive with Rolf, that was also a great lesson in terms of where I should be on the track vs where I am.

The e46 spinning out was interesting too. Showing us all that a split second of carelessness can result in disaster. Luckly there were no imovable objects in his path.

All in all it was a great event. MarkD, your times kept getting better and better on every run. Good job.

I hate auto-xing in the rain. I mean I can drive in the rain, but as soon as the rear end steps out I'm into the throttle to keep it out as long as possible. Not exactly the fastest thing to do, especially in the slalom where it's so fun to hold the rear end out.

Marcel is awesome, I can't blame his fast times entirely on his car, he's a good driver, he doesn't even give off the impression of speed when it's out there, he's so smooth.
