Where'd you race today?

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 7:45am. I then registered and passed tech. Delta SCCA split up the runs into (2) heats. I got (3) runs then worked. We all took a 45 minute lunch. Then I ran my final (3) runs and worked to complete the day. This event was my 2nd assignment as Deputy Site Safety Steward. I ran in the Street Mod (SM) class.

Weather started with a 80F sunny morning, peaked with a high of 89F, and dropped to 78F after a light rain hit in the afternoon with lightning all around us.

Click on the pictures below to see the raw results, and run results. I took 1st in the SM category by 4.644 seconds. Out of 41 drivers I had the 2nd fastest Raw time (0.077 seconds behind FTD).
