FullSolo – Competition At Speed

At last, it’s here – FullSolo !

I started a dialogue in earnest with both Truong & Steven last December 2008 about this social networking, autocross community project.

Finally it has come to fruition!  And here is what I posted as a blog entry on the FullSolo site & why I believe in this!!!

Supporting FullSolo Through Racing Ready

I have been in conversation about this project since the end of last year with both Truong & Steven. This community will establish a foundation of interest & growth in the amateur sport of autocross (Solo). This has been something lacking in the past, and although physically based in South/Central Texas, will move across the country fast. I know this will grow virally & soon!

I see this as a win-win for the local autocrosser to get some well-deserved recognition, as well as increase the popularity and awareness of this sport we all enjoy. All will benefit!

I support the shared vision & initiative of FullSolo & pledge to help it to grow though my blog, RacingReady.com.

We’ll see you out there (& also, in here!) … 😉

Racing Ready Dan

Steven Johnson will be officially launching the site at the upcoming Divisional style 2009 SASCA Autocross #5.  He will not only be recording videos of autocross runs, but plans to video interview participants, as well.  It will be good to see more of the human element in this sport!

Racing Ready supports this community & will continue to promote it!


SPOKES President Enjoys New 350Z Ride

The President of the SPOKES club (Rick) brought his new (to him) 2007 Nissan 350Z to the SPOKES 2009 Autocross #5.

You may recall earlier this year, the elements conspired to dump some major hail on Rick’s previous autocross driver, a 1989 BMW M3.  He succeeded in selling his car & was able to shop around & find this car, which is his current pride & joy.

Rick stated that his Nissan is bone stock.  Knowing how he likes to tinker & tweak, I wonder how long before some items get upgraded…

When you are the President of an autocross club, you need to show up very early to get things set up.  Here’s a picture he took with the San Marcos sunrise as the background.  It’s a nice “dawning on autocross” shot from Rick’s Facebook page – sweet & sultry!

Later in the day, Rick’s throttling through a slalom on the way to completing a clean & fast run.

Racing Ready appreciates those who appreciate these rides for their performance value, as well as for their aesthetic value.
