SD Chapter Autocross Pics + Vid, June 22nd

Hi everyone, here are some photos and a small video taken from the autocross at California speedway June 22nd. It was alot of fun, I would recommend it if you haven't tried it before. Watch out for your tires however, the surface was pretty rough and it did a number on my treads.. I put a couple pictures of the tires up, keep in mind these tires have 1800 miles on them. A majority of the pictures are of my car (gray m3) I took while my buddy drove, but I tried to get a few pics of the other rides as well.

Hope you like them!

There is also a small video here:

Glad you had fun. I would have been there , but was running another event today at El Toro.

PS2s will start to chunk and come apart on the outside edges after just a few events if you aren't running at least a few degrees of negative camber.

nice to meet you guys today. the tires actually dont look that bad. yeah some wear on the corners but you can balance that out with lots of street driving. and if you take up this sport you realize that tires are another consumable such as gas, oil and brake pads.

how did you guys do in the time runs? did you get out with Mr. Moon? Did you bro in law beat your time?

Oops.. stupid of me, I was thinking of the Button Willow event coming up I guess that is SD chapter, my bad =/

We didn't stick around for the timed session.. he had to get back to the fam, it went a little later than he thought. We each did 2 sessions and our work duties then bailed at the middle break.

Did you hear about the car that got all scratched up? It was the car waiting to go out on the track, I was directly behind it.. The EZ UP at the starters/timers blew over and scratched all across the hood and roof of a black 5 series. I couldn't see the hood, but the roof had 2 good sized (8-10 inch) white to the metal scratches.. if that would've happened on my CF roof I would've died.

I had a blast tho, hoping to make it out to the Button Willow event, we'll see if my schedule permits.

I did get to drive with Brian after, he was a big help. I learned alot from his ride. Was nice to meet you and the other fellas, just remember now I get to drive your car some day lol...
