Hey guys I really enjoyed reading your posts and seeing your auto-x pics.

I'm actually quite jealous... I wish I had a bunch of 'festers that I could hang out with at the autocross events. Ahem, ahem... to all you central Ohio 'fester sissies out there!!

Thank You Thank You. Not bad for a novice eh? Hehe wasn't expecting as much but was a very nice suprise.

Regardless of what ppl say, I kinda liked that course. Only ***** was that first hard hairpin, but that sweaper that resulted from it was my favorite!

Great meating everybody again, and Phill's car looks every bit as good as his pics! As soon as I get a chance, I'll plant the rest of my pics on my website.

Hope to see you guys next time!

Nice result for your first competitive autocross.

Maybe I should go to the novice school next year.

Hey, look there's me standing in back of Elwood's car at flag station #4.

Even at the end of the day, I just couldn't go slow enough in that first tight section. I know I could have picked up another half second if I would just stop scrubbing off so much speed in that section. Thanks for the compliment on my car. Those 18s didn't seem to slow me down too much, then again, I was beaten by a newbie.

Anybody else think that E30 M3 powered BMW 2002 shouldn't have been in class D? I haven't seen the final numbers, but a light car with a totally modified suspension and an M motor sounds like it should at least be competing with other M cars...just minor griping...it's not like I'm worrying about the number of points I'm getting at each event.

Based on some assumptions and quick addition, the '02 should have been placed in E class. They are contacting the owner of the car to find out exactly what mods the car has to see if it needs to be reclassed. FWIW, the guy was a great driver and will still win E if he is bumped up.

Sounds reasonable to me. (Elwood might have second place now? )

Hey Pete, Although that's quite a ways to drive, I wouldn't mind heading out there one day this year. Auto-xing on Tire Rack's track sounds like a lot of fun!!

E class for that car! Glad I'm not in E anymore.

I'm glad that everyone seemed to have a good time. Thanks to everyone for coming out to the event. Hopefully we'll see everyone at our future events.

Nice area. Watch out for the Huey sized mosquitos that terrorize all the towns around the Great Swamp (Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge). See you in South Plainfield!

I can't say I'm surprised, but that's the first I've heard of them. I figured there'd be some sort of presence, given the proximity... we're very close to the refuge.

They're not as big as the cicadas, are they?

Andy, that would be very cool. Here's the Calendar of Events for our chapter.

The track is really nice and there's some creative courses to be run on them. BobC is the chapter president and he's usually there too.

Thanks Pete for the info. I'll be sure to let you know in advance if I'm able to make it up for one of the events.

Macris is in the strip mall just east of University Park Mall on the other side of Grape Rd. They have good sandwiches and big (one liter) beers at reasonable prices. I haven't been there since I last drove through the Bend about 5 years ago.

The 2002 is definitely going to be bumped up to E or F. Everyone in D is going up one place.
