just went to my first autox yesterday. it was only a practice event but its all good, just to get my feet wet. got myself wet also cos it decided to hail hahaha. oh well. it was pretty cool cars on the track with lights on and wipers going.. looked like some rally race. but anyways it was soo much fun. i recommend that everyone try it at least once. the adrenaline rush is awesome!

Matt, this event that sk515 was talking about isn't CalClub's event. The event was in Rialto organized by some other club. I think it's called Lone Pine something. I didn't go to that one, but I heard it was a great course.

Oops, it wasn't called Lone Pine. Lone Pine is actually later in May. The one yesterday was organized by Corvair Club.

hey, i really want to do an autoX over the summer. u guys know when the next one will be in so cal? also, since i have ZERO suspension mod of any kind, would that put me waay back from everyone else or even not be allowed to play?

also, what is it really like? i know its a big area with cones, but is it really tight and twisty where u cant even get above 50 mph? or is it kinda long with a few turns like a mini grand turismo with cones? hehe man i really wana go now =)

well i think suspension mods will help but more importantly is the skill of the driver. yeah i dont think you get about 50 that much. its fun!!

oh yeah the size of the lane is probably wider than a normal lane. maybe about one and a half lanes.. something like that. depends on the course i guess

in the SS its not that bad cos usually just stay in 1st or 2nd gear. for our track the quickest time was like 56 sec. avg was about 1:05 1:07..

haha not sure about the speeds cos i wasnt lookin at the speedo.. but my guess is under 50. it really depends on the track.. we had a part with a fairly long straight away.. i had to shift to second.. but yeah usually you can run the track in 1st or 2nd

only one person runs at a time.

Length of the run varies...and of course, it depends on how good a driver you are
. I don't know how fast I go, because I'm too busy maneuvering around the course to look.
