This Sunday will be the next autocross event with the Metro NY Region Porsche Club of America, this time with a twist! All the other events are open to all members, and we usually have a good number of competitors about once a month from say March through November. However, this next event is limited to the highest scoring 13 drivers so far this year, so the shoot-out, or run-off will be a bit different. 

Instead of the normal everyone-drives-their-own car competition, this event will have each competitor take turns in the same car. I don't know if we get to find out what it is before driving, but I'll be there tomorrow at Tobay Beach and give it 100%. Overall I'm in 9th place for Porsche drives, so with 10 P-car drivers on Sunday, realistically I'm just hoping to not finish last at this unique setup. Who knows, maybe we'll be driving dune buggys or Oldsmobiles?

I think we each get a couple of runs, and before driving we still get to walk the course and plan ahead on how to drive it. With each person in the same car, well, I guess it mostly comes down to driving ability! Or, like in my case, it comes down to LACK of driving ability! Maybe it will be front wheel drive, or all wheel drive, or rear wheel drive, we don't know! Could it be a 100hp of fun? Maybe it will be someone's 500hp monster truck! Hey, either way, it's going to be a good time!
