Default Autocross in an SC? Why not.

This past sunday, i went with a few members of Team Blew to attend the El Toro Airfield Autocross, mainly for fun.

For those of you that don't know, El Toro was where Ken Block filmed his first Gymkhana video.

Here are some pics!

Team Blew Pit Area

My Car

Friend's R32

Entire Venue

In the Grid, must have been 140 inside the car.

Friends taped up my car.



Anyhow, i believe i was 4th in SST Class with a time of 74.6.

Running some really crappy chinese made tires. =X

Best in class was 69.4 i believe.

Best run out of all classes was in the 58 second range. Crazy Lotus Elises.

Not very impressive, but i had a blast, lots of oversteer.

haha, yea. I was the only guy getting loads of oversteer.

Airfield markings were painted with slick paint. That didnt help either.

Heavy A$$ car, not so good to autoX, but as long as you had a good time, that's really all that matters.

I had to take them off to repair some things, and in a rush to get to the track, i mounted the right side a bit sloppily.

But i can assure you they are mounted the right way. lol.
