FAST Classic Autocross - May 19 @ Brooksville

Postby Loren » Sun May 06, 2018 11:04 am

Doing a Classic at Brooksville. Doing it with a really long course. You don't want to miss it!

This is a Classic event, which means fewer entries, more runs and no formal novice instruction. We do require all entrants to have competed in at least 5 prior autocross events so that they sort of know what they're doing (or enlist an experienced sponsor).

We'll be providing lunch for all registered drivers and guests at this event.

Registration is open until May 14. You know what to do.

This event is at Brooksville, so pre-registration is required for ALL drivers and guests.

I've got to make one last tweak to it, then it will be ready. Maybe tonight yet.

Is this going to be another S4 Classic, with a few other cars thrown in for color? At least M1's making an attempt led by Ron, who when he says he's hot, means he needs a couple of aspirin and a nap....

Okay, here's the course. Yes, it looks fast. We'll let it be as fast as we can, but you know we're going to tweak things as we need to at setup. The fastest parts are similar to the Endurocross course, which isn't crazy fast.

Since Prince Harry "the nearly bald" is going to get lucky that day. I convinced wife to accompany me to the Event.

It wouldn't look good to lose with her in the car. Mark L. will bring his trailer Queen best game for sure!! He got me last time with a rerun the last run.

I'm actually thinking about rotating the tires for once?

Down force from Sun Visors will help too.

Mike Dassatti is bringing a Carrera, and Rowen Suarez is showing up with an F-Type Jag...S0 is moving upscale.... And S1 has abruptly become a Nationals prep class! It's going to be an interesting Classic....

Tires flippd and alignment finally done. I like fast courses, maybe I'll do this classic. Looks a David Marcus is showing up for this one. But do I really want a lot of runs? Hmm, laziness.

There aren't a lot of spots left. Don't dally. No one says you have to take all the runs in your car. I never do.
The 19th is Armed Forces Day and my car number what could go wrong:)

One is the loneliest number in:

R1, M3, S2, S5, FN

What? Don't need no practice? Don't need no decent lunch that's not a drive thru? On vacation? Honeymoon? Didn't check your email? Text is not on alert? Boring person?

This is your moment to shine for once. Enter the starting gate. They're off.

I'm taking 4 runs in S1. Who has the balls to take the remaining 1,2,3 or 4 runs in my car against Nationally competitive BS drivers and let me beat the shit out of their car at the same time in some unknown class? OMG to lose to the Mayor? Yes, it's happened before but not by Steve. (One Rule: Stay on the pavement Farm Truck.)

Grow a pair. Sign up now or become sorry clowns in the dismantled Sarasota Circus of Barnum and Bailey. Sad. You lose again.

I’m in.

I’d truly and honestly like some instruction this time around, so I pestered Loren into it. :-D
