So Ive had my 86 MkII for a month or so and its been a blast. I recently did an autocross event and I think I'm hooked. Who else is out there driving these through the cones?
I haven't done it in years, don't know what its like now, but one of the reasons I stopped besides some health problems was that it was hard to get that time. Our local events had so many people that I'd get only 3 or 4 heats in on a Sunday. The rest of the time I was working corners or mostly just waiting around, about 2 hours in between, which for me was enough time to forget what I'd learned the last heat. And those were long days out in the sun from 8am to 5 or 6pm. If it could have been more heats and less HEAT, I might have continued.As I said though seat time is the number 1 investment to get quicker. As inexpensive as autox events are it can be easy to get a lot of seat time.
That's nothing. I remember one we had I think they announced 175 cars and I only got three laps total that day but that's been 20 years ago. I don't know if it'd be more or less today.I'm in Amarillo and our scene here is sorta big but with only 15-30 cars racing you can get in a few heats of three or four laps.
