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 worked as a SSS. We all took a lunch break. I ran my last 3 runs after lunch, and I worked as SSS in the final session of the day. The hero run worked perfectly! 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 92F.

Click on the pictures below to see the raw results, class results, and run results. Out of 34 drivers I had FTD (Fastest Time of the Day) by 1.448 seconds and Top PAX by 0.536 seconds. :)
