Where'd you race today?

(4) of the local RS owners decided to go autocrossing at the Joint Emergency Services Training Center (JESTC) in Zachary, LA today.

I arrived at the JESTC around 7:40am. Once I got registered and passed tech, I walked the course a few times. I trailered my RS again with my tow rig to keep the miles down. Our local SCCA chapter splits up the runs into (2) heats. I worked first, then got (3) runs. We all took lunch. Then I worked and ran my final (3) runs. I ran in the Street Mod (SM) class with another RS owner, and the other (2) RS owners ran in D Street (DS).

We all got (6) runs today. I love Cenla SCCA! Weather was beautiful but chilly in the morning, ending in high 70s and sunny skies in the afternoon. Continue to love the RE-71R tires.

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 0.347 seconds ahead of Chris in his RS (built engine, stage 3 head, bolt-on turbo, full suspension, RE-71s, and self-tuned mad power/torque). Out of 69 drivers I was 5th fastest in Raw time. Very close competition today.
