AutoX Driving Notes - 052618

Very cold and windy all day at Marina

What Worked

  • Drove with PSM off on all runs
  • Found a sweet spot for tires at 40/42
  • Pretty good course read; didn't get lost
  • Better starts overall
  • Dropped times both morning and afternoon
  • Used the width of the course
  • Slalom was pretty good with concious "turn early"
  • Down jacket and ski hat

 

What Didn't Work

The Starting Line Autocross Class

The Starting Line is a class held by the Sports Car Club of America (https://www.scca.com). After taking the Evolution School class back in October, I had been quite impressed with the level of instruction from the SCCA instructors. SCCA had a deal for $325 that included a year of membership and discounts on events. So I joined up.
