Autocross #2 Report
A beautiful sight, grey GT3’s in row before our 1stautocross at Marina (#2 overall and Zone #2)
As usual, the autocross sold out with 75 drivers.
We re-used the course design from the previous day (LPR#2, Zone #1), and ran the course in reverse. The course was unusually long for Marina, and actually about 5 seconds longer than our 1stcourse of the year at Alameda (which has double the space!). With the next Alameda course still in design, I think it should be a longer one this time.

Full results can be found here: http://pca-ggr.org/autocross/results/and now features “event” and “year to date” sorting.
If you missed AX1, don’t worry, AX2 registration is now open and here’s the link: msreg.com/ggr3-2019, or for compatible mobile devices:
If you’re interested, I’d advise signing up sooner rather than later. I put the link up less than a week ago and as of right now 78 of the 105 slots are already spoken for.
Autocross #3 will be held Saturday 5/18 in Alameda and will be the 3rd Zone 7 event of the year. If you don’t know about PCA Zone 7, it contains 10 local chapters, mostly in Northern California http://zone7.pca.org/about-zone-7/
This year there will be 8 Zone 7 Autocross events: 4 of which will be the joint GGR/LPR Sprint/Fall events at Marina, plus our event next month in Alameda (home track advantage!). Sacramento region will host an autocross in Stockton in June and Thunderhill in October, and Redwood will host an autocross at Sonoma raceway in September. The Zone 7 autocross calendar is here: http://zone7.pca.org/autocross-events/
As much as I love driving at Alameda and Marina, I do enjoy experiencing other autocross sites and meeting other Porsche people and encourage you to do the same (you might even be able to score another trophy!).
As a reminder, here are the season dates again, they’re coming up quick. They have also been added to the GGR Calendar on the Website.
