Endurocross 2020! The aftermath....

Postby Loren » Sat Jan 11, 2020 8:02 pm

Did we actually get through an Enduro without anybody seriously breaking anything? :headscratch:

Fantastic event. More entries would have been good, but it just made for more seat time and a slightly more casual pace for those of us who were there.

It's amazing just how much fun you can have with a 50' wide strip of pavement that's about 1200' long!

Results are up!

Couldn't agree more. The course was a blast to drive. Really makes me miss the higher speeds of Brooksville. That slalom wiggle thing was great fun. Way more speed could be carried through there than it looked like. Same with the entrance into the turnaround on the far side of the course. The off throttle deceleration was just about perfect to get slowed down enough for the downshift into 1st.

I would like to personally thank Drew, Dan, Mark, Matt, Philip, Andrew and all the other stupid fast guys for not making it out. This was my first FTD (fun runs not included). Props to Kyle for finding another second in your extra runs though. Impressive.

Congrats Jason!

I had fun and I didn't even drive... thank you to everyone who picked up the slack I left. Good news is my fever broke over the course of the day, so autocross must be good for me! :)

See y'all again in two weeks.

This event was stupid fun! I got blisters all over my hands from a weekend of autocrossing. Congrats to Jason for just edging out Aaron and I for FTD, we were all pretty close considering it was almost a 3 min run. Also congrats to Sherlock for kicking my ass in the fun runs. And I finally got my PAX won since mustard Dan wasn’t there to steal it from me :cool:

Contemplating going back to 205 RE71s cuz I don’t think the Rivals are any faster but they’re considerably more expensive in 245. Plus I can go back to my excuse that I’m only on 205s and that’s the most important thing.

I really needed some quality seat time and boy did we get it.
5 laps per run = ~3 minutes (for us slow guys)
* 6 runs by doing both sessions = ~18 minutes
I've said it before and I'll say it again.

I think I jinxed myself during the awards ceremony. A nice, new engine bay tick means I'll probably be getting some quality wrench time.
Totally worth it. :blackeye:

This event was super fun, and it was excellent for seat time. I'm not sure if I'll be able to go back to regular style autocross after this...

I really need to work on shortening my learning curve as all of my fastest runs tend to happen during fun runs. But this car never ceases to amaze me!
