Relatively Cool Autocross

Today, thanks to the threat of rain, SASCA had a relative cool autocross.  The guys & gals got in 10(!) runs apiece.  It was a long & fast course with some surprising decreasing radius sweepers.  Here’s a quick shot of the course map.

(Please excuse the dark & low res pix this week.  Other members of my family have my good digital camera at this time – hope they come back w/good pictures, to show me what I missed.)

Due to a combination of the Divisional autocross event in Fort Worth & a reported 60% chance of rain, the turnout was low, only 38 participants.  But those that did show really enjoyed having so many runs.

Staging to go

I was able to do 2 ride-alongs; 1st with Sondra of S2KCA “fame” & 2nd with Ed, one of the Chairs of SASCA.  This sticker (& her unique vanity plate) are on the back of Sondra’s Honda S2000.

The EGO-Buster!

I also want to publicly acknowledge SASCA‘s President Rick for his support of my blog.  He was giving the play-by-play color commentary for the runs.  He also announced the blog over the PA & that anybody can talk to me about their car & I’ll make them “famous”.  Thanks again, Rick!

Slowly, more people are gaining knowledge of Racing Ready.  If you like what you read & see, tell a friend & toss in a comment.  If you don’t, toss me an e-mail (  Thanks!
