Hello everyone my name is Ken and I drive an Lexus IS350. I have heard about autocross around Oakland, but I've never seen it. I've been auto's once in Marina I'm definitely still a noob though. I'm excited to get out there and put my expensive tires to work! My main reason is to have fun and show my girl I'm a better driver than her though Very Happy I attached a picture of the one and only time I went.

Welcome to the forum Ken. What have you done to your IS350? That way we can determine what class your car belongs in. It'll make registration a lot quicker at the event.

Thanks.

I have cat back exhaust, intake, front, and rear sways bars. I'm pretty sure that's it. It's been a long time since I've modded it Smile

I've been autocrossing for many years because I wanted to. Who am I? A woman who won four national autox championships (many years ago) and had fun while doing so. If I were you, I'd keep the door open for your wife to enter but only if she wants to. It could be at first she won't want to, but she she could change her mind. This is a sport for drivers, men and women.

Thanks for the advise. I am definitely not making her do anything if that's what you're implying. I'm not sure and I don't want to assume. Only reason we would be competing is bec she assures me she is a better driver. What better way to prove it than at a legal event?

Your car falls under STX. If you don't care about points/don't want to be in the run group for STX, you can choose to run as FUN STX in any run group you want.
