Where'd you race today?

I decided to go autocrossing at Burton Coliseum in Lake Charles, 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 Burton Coliseum around 7:45am. I then registered and passed tech. Sowela SCCA split up the runs into (2) heats. I worked and then I ran my first (3) runs. No lunch break. Worked again, then I ran my final (3) runs to complete the day. I ran in the Street Mod (SM) class.

Weather was a nice 75F sunny morning, and opened up to a 93F sunny afternoon. Windy off and on.

Click on the pictures below to see the course map, raw results, and run results. I was all by myself in SM. Out of 37 drivers I came out with 4th place in raw times 1.095 seconds behind FTD (a Kart), another Kart, and a Piper FF open wheel racer. Some drivers said I could still claim FTD, Fastest Time of a Doorslammer. :)
