I hope Daniel brings the Tesla back because I would like to see how well it autocrosses with an experienced driver. I would volunteer, but I was thinking Daniel getting more experience Very Happy

You can try to make a street car into an autocrosser or you can do a lot less work to make a race car into a great autocrosser.

Thanks everyone!

I just gotta say, that the course was legal according to the rules. That is all. LOL

The only two courses I've ever made were on the North lot of Oakland, and it is a SICK lot!
Thanks Bryan for scouting out the place before the event!

Results seem to show that I coned on my last run, but one is not listed in the results. Does anyone from the motor home round 3 remember?

Thanks, Chris, but, I only got to a 41.4 in comp runs...took me a couple of fun runs to get to the mid 40's, so it doesn't count...but, it still makes me feel I'm taking the car in the right direction! Smile



Dang Mike! That is fast! You would have been at or near top pax if you could have done that in your competition runs, in a *very* underprepared car. This is definitely an encouraging result for the sleeper MRS in STR. Smile

Yep. I got my one run on some 4-year-old street tires I'd
hurriedly mounted on my rain wheels... Surprised

I really enjoyed the course as well. Especially the drag start. I realize that I'm new, but it seems to me that quite often at SFR events we see features that favor Miatas more than Mustangs. It's nice to see the opposite occasionally. I'm not sure how other courses nationally look compared to ours, but I know that AAS courses, for example, look very different from SFR courses. Just curious, but how tight/fast are SFR courses compared to the average SCCA course? Has anybody ever tried to figure out an "SFR only" PAX? If drag starts are common nationally, then we should either do them OR recognize that we're not using something that helps certain cars' PAX numbers and try to include something to make up for that.

I totally agree with you! The drag race start was unusual, because that kind of start is hard on drivetrains. Round 7's course was just plain fun, with plenty of room for large cars. Wish we had more of those. But we rely on volunteers who don't always get that picture.

i can tell you bmwggc and pcaggr have had tight courses in the last yr.
generally i wouldn't say sfr courses are tight.
it's impractical to figure out the avg scca course; it's a big country w/ all sorts of venues!
as for sac scca, when i ran at stockton and mather i'd say courses were in the same ballpark as sfr.

you can see lots of clubs' courses on my videos; i think i've run most/all venues available in the area the past 5 yrs. i unposted lots of old videos but can reupload if you need to see a certain venue not currently shown:
