Where'd you race today?

I decided to go autocrossing at the Lamar Dixon Facility in Gonzales, LA today.

I arrived at the Lamar Dixon Facility around 8:00am. Once I got registered and passed tech, I walked the course a few times. I drove to the event on my Enkei wheels with 275/35/R18 Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R tires. Our local SCCA chapter splits up the runs into (2) heats. I got (3) runs then worked. We all took a 1 hour lunch. Then I ran my final (3) runs and worked to complete the day. I ran in the Street Mod (SM) class alone.

We all got (6) runs today. I love Cenla SCCA! Weather was a 55F misty and cool morning, but opened up to a 76F sunny afternoon.
