WOW WICKED AUTOCROSS!!!!!! I have to give it up to John for this one, stuck to what he said and did a track that was techinically challanging but still was quicker!!!!

Also a big thanks to Mark D for coming out and talking to everyone about Software tuning for BMW's, I can honestly say I did learn something.

It was a very busy day, 20 cars plus running at the event pluss tonnes of people stopping by to check it out.

I think this was one of the best times I have had all summer, thanks to everyone who was out for making it a great day, everyone was so energietic it helped keep me going!!

I had a great time, and finally a track that was not geared to people driving mini's. I managed to not go off course, and not hit a single pylon! Can't ask for more than that.

Suggestion for next time. Can we do something about those last turns where you go lock to lock twice?

Good times, good times. I'm paid up for next year! Thanks John for setting up a great course! Nice to see a good turn out, esp. all the e30 usual suspects. Thank you Mark D for explaining what you do! Rudy, your car is too fast... GIVE ME YOUR TIRES!!

That was there for safety, slow people down by the timing gear, people doing the timing, and the stop box.....you should have been there 2 events ago when there was a 4 time lock to lock snake half way in the course....

I know it was there for safety, but it's a little excessive. A simple 90 degree turn like 30 feet from the box would have done the exact same thing, not going lock to lock twice.

If you're afraid of people doing the timing getting hit, move the tent onto the grass, the cord looked like it was 50 feet long.

Sam just remember we all have to make it through the tight hard sections. Autocross is more about technical driving then all out speed.

Just be glad that you have your power steering. Try those sections with a manual rack. LOL. E36 rack up grade time. Why do you think Rudy has a M3 rack. I am even considering the e36 rack after doing a few autocrosses. I think I lost at least a second on my time at that one spot cause of the manual rack.

I know, I understand that everyone has to do it, but a lot of people didn't like that section. I think the same objective of it can be achieved but with more fun.

You will be able to pay for next year and get the rest of this year included. Which is a great deal.

^^^We'd love to see you out there, plus that would be the event to attend since it's going to be a double header!
