Well, I got my first win last night. Laguna Seca. I somehow was qualified on the pole and never lost the lead. I was more nervous there than I was at a national autocross, lol.

you should see how nervous you are starting your first actual road race in a car you can't afford to crash. You will never be nervous at an autocross after that. :wink:

even more nervous is having John Browns car sideways at Rd Atl comming out from under the bridge haulin azzzz when the dip was still there. :shock: Yeah, I bought him some tires before I purchased a wrecked race car. :lol:

Just aim at the second/third garage door in the maintenance garage on the next ridge and squeeze the throttle and turn in. A matter of trust.

They've fixed the Star Mazda a lil bit Ted, slides are more recoverable. car is a little more predictable on the limit too, more fun overall.

and the Aussie V8's are fun too once you get the hang of em, I think its in Aussie/American blood to be good at wrestling heavy, shitty-handling cars around :lol:

Thats awesome Chris! The Solstice wins will come more easier and the other D+ class cars and hard to win. Still have not won one in road or oval I don't think. Won a big car race once but it was a fun week 13 race, I like the new Solstice update. They are fun to drive again. And for the first time the Corvette is a lot of fun!
