Default AutoX Practice (Bedford, TX)

Yesterday turned out to be a great day for a practice. Weather reports claimed a 50% chance of rain, and there was some cloud cover but it never did rain and it was about 65 - 70 degrees throughout the day. I got in more runs than I can remember -- probably in the neighborhood of 15 runs. And I used 1/4 tank of gas just from autocrossing.

It was a great experience and a humbling experience. I knew I was a little rusty going in, but that's what the practice is for. My friend brought his '06 Evo MR so we had a little friendly competition amongst ourselves. I spent a good amount of the day trying to catch up to his times. I was always a little slower though and knew I needed to make up time but I lost sight of what I needed to work on.

Then I let my brother drive my car. On his very first try he beat my best time by 6 tenths and got a 33.8. He then followed up that performance with a better one and got a 33.2. I rode with him to see what he was doing and the biggest difference was his slalom speed. He was keeping it very tight and he kept his speed up throughout.

Meanwhile, my friend in his Evo had just put down his best time of the day of 33.7 seconds. So I knew what I had to do. I hopped in my car again and this time my plan was to focus on a clean line above all else and pay special attention to my slalom speed. With all this in mind I put down a clean run of 33.7 seconds -- a perfect tie with my friend's time in his Evo, but still 1/2 second behind my brother in my own car. That turned out to be my best time of the day, but I obviously have some work to do and hope to improve more at the school next week.

I'll post pics & videos later.

Actually I don't think there were. I know Jeff Larson was there with his RSX-S in STS and his best time was a 34.8 I think. Of course none of these times were posted so I don't know many of them.
