Ready For 2021 Autocross

2009 Porsche Cayman Base Model with PDK 7 Speed Automatic Transmission

My last autocross event was forever ago, way back, way way back in November of 2020. Man, that seems like last year! Anyways, after missing the first cold event of this year, I'm ready for tomorrow's 2nd autocross of the Metro NY Porsche Club of America, so with my trusty steed Ruby shown above, we're ready to rock. 

Last year I managed to make it to 2 events, so in 2021 I'm looking for even more competition. Autocross keeps things interesting, since out of all the drivers there is more than one competition. On pure fastest time, or RAW time, it helps to either have more horsepower, or just flat out be a better driver. On the PAX adjusted time that takes into account how fast your car "should" be, I usually do much better. Beyond the overall RAW and PAX times, each car runs in a specific class of fairly even machinery, so there's another competition to shoot for the gold. There are typically a LOT of classes, so in my experience winning my class for one day might mean I was the only person in my class too! With the Porsche club, I've had 3 or 4 in my class last year, so at least it's not just one person!

Hey, I mentioned that I got a new helmet from the fine folks at Zamp, and here it is with a few stickers thrown on to spice it up a bit.
