Stiff Competition



At our latest autocross we had some stiff competition in both classes, so without great fanfare, here's the final results RESULTS LINK.   Drivers were allowed 4 runs, the best one time is the only one that counts.  You'll see some "+1" marks that signify the driver hit a cone (and got a 2 second time penalty), and for the REALLY GOOD drivers, even a "+5" for taking out FIVE cones (like my last run!  Aren't you glad I did that just to demonstrate how to get a 10 second penalty?).

DNF= Did Not Finish, and that driver got off course somehow. (like my FIRST run---again, just so that you can see one in action!)

Overall, I had fun and learned a lot by watching all these faster pilots, but managed to at least finish ahead of one Focus and one Fiesta.  Since the Ford folks took the first six positions in GS, I'm thinking they've got a pretty good car there.  Certainly it's not because I'm a slower driver.  (hope you're laughing by this point)

You can see the season over-all points on our results page, which in GS currently has Justin Robinett in first by one point over both Robert and Michael Arnold. Stiff competition!

Over in ES, all but one driver was sitting in a Miata, so the fine rear wheel drive Mazda product (now in it's 25th year of production) is the king of the class.  After the 2nd run Brian was holding on to first place, but then a run by Kyle Ray-Smith bumped Brian into an also excellent 2nd place on the day against all this Mazda madness. Kyle is now leading the class for the season, and Brian is sitting in 3rd overall and closing on 2nd place
