Where'd you race today?

I decided to go autocrossing at the Lamar Dixon Facility in Gonzales, LA today.

I drove my RS to this event. I arrived at the Lamar Dixon Facility around 7:30am. I helped the other board members setup the course on 03/27/21. Once I got registered and passed tech, I walked the course a few times. Our local SCCA chapter splits up the runs into (2) heats. I got (3) runs then worked. We all took a lunch break. Then I ran my final (3) runs to complete the day. I ran in the Street Mod (SM) class.

We all got (6) runs today. I love Cenla SCCA! Weather was a 72F humid morning, rained a bit before lunch for the first (2) heats, but opened up to a 68F sunny afternoon with a fairly dry track for good times.
