SCCA Chicago Region events 7 & 8

I know these videos are a little late but… I have been busy with my new job! Thanks to everyone who helped and encouraged me while I was job hunting this fall.

A little background. The last two events for Chicago Region are called “The Twin”. They are run back to back on a Saturday and Sunday. The course runs one direction on Saturday and the opposite direction on Sunday. There were a few tweaks to Sundays version but 90% of it was left the same as Saturday.

Event #7 was cold. The temps started in the 30’s and got into the low 40’s for the afternoon. Yeah, we autocross no matter what the weather in Chicago. The course was slippery in the morning but I was able to lay down my best time on my third run. On my afternoon runs I just hit cones like they were piñatas. I have been moving the camera around to see where I like it the best. This was on the door under the drivers side mirror.

Sunday (Event #8) was better with the temperature getting in to the 50’s. I enjoyed this direction a little more and feel I was able to link some of the sections together better. I had the camera at the front edge of the hood for this run.

As always, it was a lot of fun. I can’t wait for next season! Thanks to all the Chicago Region people who put on great events this year!
