Default Anyone ever tried their ES out in Autocross?

I did.. hahaha.. This past weekend GRRA (Guam Road Racers Association) held their first autocross practice run at the Guam Raceway Park parking lot. There weren't so many cars, 25 or 30 that showed up... Pretty good turnout considering this club just started out about a month ago. Fastest times of the day were by a Prelude and a S14 240... Consistent 42's and 43's... I was able to hit a 51 on my third try, most took dozens of runs to hit past 45 seconds. I really didn't care how fast I went, it was just fun.... Lots of different cars at the meet... 240's, RX-7, 86, Nissan/Toyota trucks (it's a Guam thing), old school Beemers...and more haha, check out the pics of the ES.


Me and my friend's 01 Maxima


whoa.. haha


that's me!

ouch!!! the hood looks like it can still be repaired, it's just the paint that's very expensive.
