Solo II May 7, 2006

Postby AKLGT » Sun May 07, 2006 1:08 pm

Well, we went out and ran Solo II autocross today with the Porche Club. It was much more laid back and more chaotic than SCCA but still a good time. i think it was the largest group that ever attended one of their events so they were a bit unprepared. 32 cars total but then some had to leave early since it took them awhile to get us up and running.

Phil did fantastic and beat me once again. i think he ran pretty much almost perfectly each time. i've come to the conclusion that i pretty much suck at this. i'm either going too fast and lose it or i go too slow. guess that's what this is all about, having fun and improving as we go. i had tons of fun and this time, pushed myself much harder than last weekend, i took out a cone my first run (happened to be my best time of the day), then second run was going too fast and skidded past the cones I needed to go into so i was off course. the third one, it had just rained and i wanted to kinda take it slow since the course was quite slick. my last run.... well let's just say i had A LOT of fun. they gave me credit for 3 cones (2 of which took a trip with me til the staging area) but i'm told it was more like 6 cones... it was the entire corner 1 i took out.

You two need to chill out with your racing...making me jelous

I'm going to go steal a bunch of cones and make my own unofficial autocross event so I can take pictures and look cool like you

Those Caterham Super 7s are sweet looking. How did it do in the course? Seems like it would do well.

I don't remember the guy's name driving so I don't know how well it was doing. But if your going to steal some cones... make sure they are the small soft rubber type. Those taller construction cones will leave marks and dents on your car.

And it was a lot of fun. I suggest buying a flight up here and taking a rental through the SCCA event on May 29th lol.

Well they have a giant 7 in teh grill (removed)...

Although I know those are victims of kit cars just like the Cobras so I think Lotus makes one, Caterham is the originator and there are some kit car manufacturers that make them as well!
