Autocross Events #5 and #6

Wow, I took quite a break there. In my defense, looking for a job takes up a lot of my time. Hurry up and improve you stupid economy! Anyway, onto the autocrossing videos.

Event #5 had a very fast course. The first slalom you could enter on either side. I found by going to the right of the first cone I could carry more speed through the slalom and pick up a couple seconds. The turn before the finish was very tight and a lot of people nearly spun trying to power across the line.

Event #6 had some fun elements. I liked the turn around as I could make the 2 turns into 1 big sweeper since there was a ton of room at the far end of the lot. Some people complained that there wasn’t enough room to set up for the first slalom but I thought the transition from the gate before it was fine. The finish was rough as you had to almost look out the drivers side window to see the line after coming down the short straight. There was a lot of tire smoke in that area during the day LOL.

This weekend is the big 2-day season ender. Can’t wait!
