Could this smile be bigger...?

Here is Sue after her fourth run today at the SCCA Ft Wayne Region Solo School.
Her times dropped every run, from 40.120 to 33.497 on her last (4th) run.
In contrast, I started at 32.925 to a low of 31.595 on my 3rd run.
Because it was only about 45 degrees, I left the Hoosiers on the trailer and ran on the original Pilot Sports (4500 miles on the car).
And this was her first real attempt at autocrossing (the 20 second course at HC last year doesn't count).
Tomorrow is the real autocross for points and trophies...

The guy who set up the course (mucho practice runs...) got down to the high 29.***'s in a C-prepared Mustang.
After Sue's last run, it took her about five minutes for her adrenaline level to go back down so she could stop shaking.
She had a good time!
