I'm ready to get beat by a Yaris! Again.. When can we sign up for the school? That was probably the best 'motorsport money' I've ever spent.

I'm going to intend to come out, mark it on the calendar, and then probably sleep in instead. I like the idea of doing it though, and would likely enjoy it..

I want to give it a shot. I find it looks more intimidating than the track through. Looks easy to get lost

I think that getting lost is expected at first?

I'm gonna give it a go this year as well.

Getting lost is a rite of passage.

Depends on the course. We have a relatively new guy designing the courses this year, so we'll be giving him guidance to try and make sure that they're not too visually complex. Generally people don't get entirely lost, you're much more likely to miss an element or 3 and then pick the course back up without realizing you missed anything. That happens all the time, to new comers and veterans alike.

If you do get lost, no big. Just keep heading in the right general direction and try to pick the course back up. If you starting heading in a dangerous direction (towards another car) we'll stop it before you get too close.

Everyone's really nice and open to chatting too, kinda like a 1morelap event with much less expensive cars.

Awesome driver development, and cheap to boot. No reason not to come out.

Autocross is the best driver development you can get short of snow cross. You learn more about vehucle dynamics in Autocross than you do at then track. The years I spent Autocrossing saved my ass several times on track.

Exactly!!

This should be mandatory to get your licence. Will be signing the wife up for the school.

Plenty of other people who have the same car. I even saw one while signing up at auto x.

Come say hi Rainey, I'm in the green Miata Speedster with wrinkly fender. Hell, if you feel like coming in a bit early to help set up the course that would be awesome!

Why do I not see your S2K on the registrant list yet? Get on it!

I want to take care of the valves, do the brake fluid, before I register. I'll just spectate tomorrow after getting some stuff from wing and visiting MANL.

Still figuring out a shop who will do the valves. I could probably still run with my current setup, but eh. Going to the school for sure though. And if I can find a helmet I can save $5!

inverted
May 9th, 2014, 12:59pm
MANL for the helmet, Nigel Mortimer sells HJC AR10ii, Perry Performance in Laval just posted a new Zamp for around $250 on their fb page.

Get Snell SA2010.

Who's car are you driving jon?

I might be there. Finally found the rattle that's been bugging me. Heatshield on the turbo had a mount snapped. Need to make a new mount or something.

School is like $110ish if you're not a member and $90ish if you're a member. There is a 2 hour classroom session evening of the 24th, and a day (8-4) on the 25th.

Well that was by far my strangest day of autocross ever. None the less it was fun. Great meeting you Inverted, I will probably thank you again another 10 times for your help. was pretty excited to run a 59 while in limp mode (wouldn't let me rev past 4 k) Car is all fixed up now an ready for the next event.
