2010-03-07 Redwood Region PCA autocross in Santa Rosa

Went to a PCA autocross on Sunday a week ago, and placed decent. I guess I am getting to the point where I get to aim to actually win my class or something. Anyways, here are the results (XLS file). I took Ladies class, even though I did not run Ladies. Not enough women run to make this a meaningful win, plus I don't believe that in autocross gender has any impact on performance--given power everything (brakes, steering, windows, and door locks).

Moving on, my car and I managed to get into a few shots taken at the event. You can see the full album of course, if the Yeller and I aren't quite enough to still your visual thirst for cars.

I ran first and third heat and worked second and fourth. My assignment was the scoreboard, basically writing down everyone's times on a large whiteboard, so people can see their times and everyone else's as the day progresses. It's a semi-slack job, but requires concentration and the ability to talk to drivers stopping by to look at and discuss the results while not missing anyone's times.

I really like the Santa Rosa Airport site and the way RR PCA set up their courses, and am looking forward to the next event in April.
