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

I drove my RS to this event. I arrived at the Lamar Dixon Facility around 7:30am. I helped the other board members setup the course on 12/18/21. After I used a backpack blower to clean grid, I got registered and passed tech, and I walked the course a few times. Our local SCCA chapter splits up the runs into (2) heats. I was Site Safety Steward today, and I got to run in the 2nd heat. We all took a lunch break. Then I was SSS again followed by my final (3) runs. The hero run almost worked. I ran in the Street Mod (SM) class.

We all got (6) runs today. I love Cenla SCCA! Weather was a 49F cool morning, and only rose to a high of 50F before dipping to 48F before the event was over.
