I decided to go autocrossing at NOLA Motorsports Park in New Orleans, LA today.

I trailered my RS again to this event. This keeps the miles off the RS and eliminates the need to swap from street wheels/tires to my autox setup. I arrived at NOLA Motorsports Park around 8:15am. I then registered and passed tech. Today I was asked to be 1 of the 2 SSS, so I opted to work first and then complete (3) runs in the morning session. I worked again after lunch, then completed (4) runs to finish the day. Delta SCCA called this event "May I Have Another", so they gave each racer (7) runs instead of the normal (6). I ran in the Xtreme Street (XS-A) class.

Weather started with 74F in the morning and a wet track from recent rain, then peaked with a sunny high of 83F.

Click on the pictures below to see the raw results and run results. Out of 55 drivers I placed 5th in RAW time just 0.729 seconds behind FTD.
