I'm probably screwed. Everybody said you need a fast car... LOL.

I think the best strategy is approaching this like a "normal" event going as fast as you can...For most trying to be consistent will make things worse. My only adjustment will be to be conscious of not overdriving looking for the one lucky fast run

Most people will break out and get DSQ'd if they drive it like a normal autocross. Especially people on slicks

JY, looks like you are screwed, too... unless you plan on running on street tires.

Well.. Iv heard everything from.. "its gonna be a Pro Driver with experience" to "it'll prolly be won by some nobody with a shitbox car"..

:lol:

Truth is.. no body knows and every body has "autocross privilege" from the get -go.

Have fun! Get seat time! Ill be in a BIG,HIGH HP car that I'v NEVER ran before in my life. so, ya'll gonna beat my ass at least! 8)


You dont even have to win overall to make more money autocrossing in a day... than most decent drivers can make in a year!

JY is much more consistent than me. He's been competitive in pro longer than I've been autocrossing. That being said, I wont be surprised if he breaks out of he truly takes every run 100% without sandbagging. Just look at results and count how many people would have broken out if they were running a drag cross. A lot

Out of the first event, about half the XP field would have DSQ'd

I've only seen a few people make their fastest run on the first run of the day. Blows my mind. I think you'll have a really good shot. I wish I could do that, but I'm not there yet.

What is the plan for setup? Friday night or Saturday morning? Someone asked if they could park their car and trailer on the site Friday night?

We will be there Friday about 4pm and set up the course then and not sure what time we will be there to, but they can come by and see if it is still open. I am guessing that we will be there till 8-9pm ish.
