It was still raining as this autocross day dawned. By the time I arrived at the AT&T Center parking lot, it was cloudy & cold, but no longer raining. The lot was very wet with a few puddles. During the event the surface constantly improved as the air temperature warmed up & the surface slowy dried out.
I went on a few ride-alongs to check out the course & hear the different competitors points of view as to how they handled the changing surface traction.
Also, the lot had a couple of very different & unexpected obstacles – a pair of WWE (WRESTLEMANIA) tractor trailers. Apparently there were leftover from some event at the AT&T Center. They moved out later.
This was was a well-attended event, with at least 73 competitors signed up, many of them novices. We were discussing at lunch that even though it was cold & raining this morning this is the best turnout for a SASCA autocross event, this year.
Racing Ready got a chance to experience some inclement weather combined with autocrossing. We’ll see if there’ll be more, later this season.
