This past Sunday I was in the dual role as both Eventmaster & autocross event participant. This autocross was the last event SASCA put on at the AT&T Center parking lot. We lost our contract & are in the process of looking for a new autocross home.
Karlino, my “new ” 1999 Mazda Miata did okay, more of less. I was proud of 2 things:
- I improved my times on each successive run
- I didn’t hit any cones – yeah!
Unfortunately, run #4 was very poor. Something happened to the fuel management – it was as if Karlino had the hiccups, I could not get full power. This condition disappeared as mysteriously as it appeared. Oh well…
Below is an overview of the AXWare Systems printout of my runs – click to enlarge:
At this event I was 10th out of 21 Novice competitors, no improvement from the last autocross, but not really worse, either. In July’s event I was 8th of 18 Novices.
The next autocross will be a co-event with the SPOKES Club at the San Antonio Raceway, on Sunday, September 27th, 2009. Racing Ready continues to learn what I can do with my bone stock Miata to improve course times.
