Awesome, thanks!

And thank you to all that came out and braved the miserable heat. Nice to be home by 3:00 though.

I'm too tired and sore to think of anything else about the event

I think I was 3 runs clean, maybe two.

I really had no clue about the first run, and the second one I felt something off... Fixed that, and then the 4th run I came in too tight at the finish and never saw the other pointers.. Lol

Thanks for the help!

From a timing and scoring perspective:

The trailer placement was great. Being able to see the cars start and finish makes thing go so much smoother.

Having three cars on course is also great. We can get a lot more runs in and take a lot less time. I'd vote for trying hard to make this happen at all events in the future.

Cathers is definitely getting the car lined up and back into the throttle earlier than me.

Trailer location was about as good as it could get with where start/stage were. I like to be able to see 2-3 cars in staging, but that just wasn't feasible yesterday. Glad it worked out though.

Cityview magazine was there doing a review and interviews of what we are about as well as taking a bunch of pictures and we will be in the Sept issue I believe was the month that he said. So if you get that mag we should have a article on ETR and autocross.

Grid was kinda congested where the exit of the course was the same as grid exit and trying to watch and not send anyone past the first turn when someone was going thru there. We made it work pretty good I think though and tried to keep enough staged up top for when we got tight.

Yes.. As a driver, grid was dicey. Cars going up and down the same lane was tough, as you had to get it timed just right to get us thru the cross over before the next car came thru. That was my only complaint.

And cathers is just flippin stupid fast in any car. But really makes a corvette do crazy shit. Embarrassed me every time (not that I'm fast) and at least speed me what the car was a capable of.
