Question So how are the autoxes at Summit Point?

Never done one before. With the 1.1 mile length and high speeds I'm a little worried about my stock brakes. The guy I talked to said they were crossing the finish at 90+ mph last time. Any hints or suggestions? I've done many an autox but have only used 3rd gear a few times and only for a few seconds at that.

They're fun, and your brakes should be fine.

And I call bulls**t on the 90mph. The ONLY time I've hit close to that was at a Porsche event two years ago where there was a 1/3 mile straight on an airstrip. I don't know that the Jefferson Curcuit could handle those kinds of speeds for an autocross (more than 1 car on track at a time).

If the 90mph IS true, then the course should have been redesigned. Autocrosses are not meant to have such high speeds.

I dunno......I hit third gear for awhile in the Neon. Top of 2nd is 60 so I was going at least 75 (maybe 80). I'm sure that the faster cars were going a bit faster than my Neon which runs ~mid 14s.

The auto-xes at Summit are awesome, but there is a price to pay if you lose it at speed. Ask the guy in the S2000 who stuck it in the mud.....TWICE (he almost crashed at Rosecroft 2 weeks ago also) My suggestion is to drive sensibly when you are flying, hang it out in the slower corners, and don't be afraid to knock over cones before you get wound up trying to stick a corner you can't make.

It definately separates the men from the boys

The guy I talked to said it was the Corvettes that were hitting the 90+ mph. I think I will set the car up to take out some of the inherent oversteer I had dialed in with the alignment. Prolly just stiffen the front shocks but if that doesn't do it I'll be sure to bring the tools to turn my rear bar down a notch of two.

Hey Tony,

It's not that bad if you know what you're doing, the ones that have driven the track have a slight advantage over those that only ax from the speeds involved. Corners are coned off to use the insides only, and straights have slaloms. I would probably set it a little less loose though.
