Houston AutoX 08-03-2008

Went Auto crossing this past Sunday. Most fun i've had in a while.

Took about 7-8 Ride alongs (from what i can remember, 1 ride in Ven's BMW, 3-4 miatas , 1 cavilier, an old 3 series bmw (we spun out), and some other cars)

Had 4 runs myself, first time i've had my car going sideways and DRIFTING (yes drifting, albeit uncontrollably most of the time) around corners

179 Entrants in today's event.

My Times:
1) 80.796
2) 83.381( 2)
3) 76.818
4) 74.791

I improved each time (with the exception of run #2 where i had 2 cones worth 2 seconds a piece)

Placed 3 out of 4 in the H-Stock Class [behind a 06 mazda 3 tourin double run (2 ppl) in 1st and 2nd and in front of an 07 civic SI in 4th]

HS CLASS BEST TIMES(only first and second got trophies):
1t 170/HS......... 06 MAZD 3 62.040
2t 70/HS......... 06 MAZD 3 I TOURIN 62.652
3. 613/HS......... 06 HOND ACCORD 74.791
4. 661/HS......... 07 HOND CIVIC SI 96.161
