Where'd you race today?

(2) of the local RS owners 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 swapped the OE Forged wheels + Michelin Pilot Super Sports for my 18x9 Enkei RPF1 wheels + 275/35/18 Hoosier A7 tires. Unusual for me, I got to run in the morning shift and work after lunch. Both of us RS owners ran in the Street Mod (SM) class again. I got to watch the majority of Chris running in SM today because he was directly in front of me in grid.

We all got (7) runs today. I love Cenla SCCA! Weather was perfect again, mid 70s and clear skies.

Click on the pictures below to see the course map, raw results, run results, overall standings, and car setup. I took 1st in the SM category by 1.204 seconds ahead of Chris in his RS (full suspension, RE-71s, and self-tuned mad power/torque). Out of 46 drivers I placed 3rd.
