|All loaded up early Friday morning.|
For the first time attending a national tour event, in the largest (22 drivers) and possibly most competitve class with multiple national champions in the mix, my goal was to not finish last. The good news is I succeeded, the bad news is that I was much closer to last than I would have liked. A lot was learned and we had a great time having fun down in Cecil, Georgia this weekend.
|In line for test and tune on Friday afternoon.|
We arrived on-site for the event around 1pm on Friday and had just enough time to get through tech inspection and join the optional test and tune session that afternoon. It was good to get 3 runs in the car for the first time in 9 months! That would be the only practice before 6 total competition runs that weekend.
|Finally made it official and added the J. Rucker with B. Nixon|
|The first two rows are all the ES class ready for competition runs on Sunday.|
|SCR Miatas moving up to the starting line on Sunday.|
|Jason launches the car for his final run on Sunday.|
|With the new wing, the trunk doesn't like to stay open. Good thing we have a breaker bar!|
I've learned a lot autocrossing at local events, but taking it to this next level was a great experience. Just nine total runs or about nine total minutes of actual seat time this weekend and I already know what I can work on this season to start making massive improvements. I'm glad Jason, my co-driver did better than I and took the car to 14th overall. We've got our eyes set on the big national championship in Lincoln in September and we can't wait to keep improving.
|All packed and ready to go home.|
