Lololol
Tires are like gasoline. They are meant to be burned

This is TJ Bain's very first autocross. His AC experience prior to this run is a course walk with Danny Popp. That Popp guy must be one hell of an instructor or TJ Bain can really drive or a LOT of BOTH.

Found the vids! This was at Knights Stadium, the organizers setup a small autocross with a few tight turns.

My buddy rode along and took some vids, hence the shaky camera :(


This time he decided to take a video of my hands while running around the track:


Another friend decided to take a vid from outside and time me, a pro driver had shown up that day and done a :34 sec lap.

Unfortunately the course will not look like the one in the video. There had to be a vendor display area and open roads on the facility.... I have a great crew to work with on the AC layout. GARMOL, Rob, Chris, Dan, Danny and I will sort out a great course on the oval and infield.

The oval is out. The West portion of the Road Course is in.



The oval would have been fun, but I have no doubt that more than one C5 member would have kissed a wall. No matter how I ran possible course layouts the oval walls were too close for comfort. We are going to have a FANTASTIC Autocross.

If you haven't registered for the AC NOW is a good time to get it done.
