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 8:15am. I got registered and passed tech, and I walked the course a few times. Our local SCCA chapter splits up the runs into (2) heats. I got to run in the 1st heat. Since I'm a Cenla SCCA Board Member, I don't work. I'm usually strolling around the entire site helping out as a SSS. We all took a lunch break. I ran my last 3 runs in the final session of the day. The hero run was working perfectly until I tapped a cone over in the transition from the front to rear parking lots. I guess the Falken Azenis RT660 tires have a better turn-in than the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R? I ran in the Xtreme Street (XS-A) class today.

We all got (6) runs today. I love Cenla SCCA! Weather was 75F in the morning, and rose to a sunny high of 83F. This was my first event on my new Falken Azenis RT660 tires (same size as the previous Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R).

Click on the pictures below to see the raw results, class results, and run results. Out of 50 drivers I had 3rd fastest Raw time just 0.086 seconds behind FTD!

Notes for my 37.405 run:
