I have never owned a VW, but am guilty of owning an underrated FWD sleeper, GEO storm GSI, who would have thought a GEO would really be a re badged lotus!!!!

Yup, you're right about one thing...............

The first event always takes a tonne of time 'cause I've got to figure out what class everyone is in, then apply the appropriate PAX factor, and I've had to make a number of calls/emails to confirm certain mods on some cars, again to make sure everyone ends up in the right category. Why, oh why, can't we all just drive stock cars???? LOL.

Exactly, one run still counts as it stands regardless of how poor you think you did. Just a heads up, your first and only run beats over half of the packs best run of the day, so you didn't do as poorly as you think.
