Autocross #7 Report

September’s Autocross was yet another sold out event (this time at Marina) with 70 drivers. The course a re-use of the previous day’s LPR course and the next to the last Zone 7 event of the season and was well received. There were wide lanes and plenty of space to experiment with different racing lines (both right and wrong…)

While the Saturday event was super windy, with driving sand, Sunday was a nice pretty typical day for Marina.

Several of us closely inspected Monte’s car but were unable to locate the hidden nitrous bottle (gotta be there somewhere).

The next AX event is back at Alameda. As I just got back from the last event a few hours ago, I have not yet posted the event, but it will be up soon (perhaps when this newsletter goes out) at the following URL: msreg.com/ggr8-2019

If you’re interested, I’d advise signing up sooner rather than later. Every AX event so far this year has sold out in 2-3 weeks, well before the event. Only 2 more events remain this year, then it’s on to winter projects! Last 2 events:

  • Autocross #8 – October 19 ALAMEDA (Saturday)
  • Autocross #9 – November 16 ALAMEDA (Saturday)
