June 15th Autocross Results



Today Brian and I headed up to Winston Salem and had a great time with the Triad Sports Car Club at their autocross. We both drove the FIAT Abarth in G Street, and in a field of 5 drivers took 2nd and 4th. Out of a field of 103 total drivers, my best adjusted PAX time was 22nd, so that is pretty good for me.  We'll put more results up later, but here's a few photos of the day and a link to my 4 runs thanks to Brian's GoPro camera.  The 4th run was my fastest:      (VIDEO LINK)

                                         Cars lined up for one of the run groups outside the LJVM Coliseum
                                                         Here's my 2nd place in GS class hardware!

Here are the results for GS, showing raw times for all 4 runs, then the fastest run for each driver, and the last column shows the time gap between each driver.  Since I was in my own car, I managed to stay just ahead of Brian who is used to his rear wheel drive Miata, although I could state that this shows that front wheel drive is the way to go like in my FIAT. Brian's last run would have bumped him up to 3rd place but he hit one cone (+1), which officially adds two seconds to his 4th run time of 42.396 shown here.

I was happy to not hit any cones, and drop my first 43.676 into the 42.5s for the next two runs, and really happy to drop more time on the 4th run and get the 42.251 to just get into 2nd place.
