Wink Sept 21st Autocross results!

I went to the PCA AutoX yesterday and met Josh there as usual (candy-cane LS1 FC RX-7). It was supposed to be our (non-Porsche) turn to go second, but with the "track" being wet all the Porsche guys whined that we should dry it up for them. After some commotion, a coin was flipped, and non-Porsche's lost, so we got the wet/damp track and they got the damp/dry track. Even with that disadvantage we made a good showing!

Josh got 3rd in class (Podium!!!) with a 41.898, just behind an MR-S on slicks (SP classed, modded out, nice car) and the perennial pain in everybody's butt, the huge turbo'd Miata (SM2 car with full mods on slicks, HOT car and very fast driver). Josh's time was also good for 9th Overall (out of 58 drivers) but that sounds worse then reality, as he was only beat by 5 cars (the aforementioned MR-S and Miata, plus an E-Mod 914 race car, a 944 Turbo race car, and a new freaking GT3! All of the Porsche's were trailered).

I didn't do too shabby either with the 231000 mile all-original 12A FB. I got 10th in class (out of 22) and 41st Overall (out of 58 drivers). Got a little recap below.


10 83 Michael Pinto 1984 Mazda RX-7 44.909
11 235 Brandon Cossette 1992 Honda Civic 45.571 Turbo'd
12 510 Mike Braaten 1970 Datsun Roadster 45.937 SR20DE swap
13 200 Bryan Brock 2002 BMW M3 45.988
14 49 Bruce Allert 1997 Mazda Miata 46.057 slicks
15 240 Chris Ruge 1990 Nissian 240SX 47.127 KDW II's
16 324 Steve Voigt 1996 Mitsubishi 3000GT 47.318 Twin-Turbo
17 523 Kathy Averitt 1992 Honda CRX 47.376
18 610 Xuan Cadavona 1993 Nissan 240sx 48.220 SR20DET
19 511 Nemesio Flores 1995 Mitsu Eclispe 48.461
20 190 Bryan Tisa 2008 Subaru WRX 48.480
21 50 Kimberly Beck 2006 Mazda Miata 48.747
22 712 Alex Tores 1995 Ford Mustang 55.176

42 P3 109 Ryan Sauer 1979 Porsche 911SC 45.203
43 I1 152 Richard Averitt 1971 Porsche 914 45.366
44 S2 121 Peggy Munson 2002 Porsche 911 C4 Cab. 45.451
46 P3 84 Alan Wizeman 1984 Porsche 911 45.677
50 P5 1140 Shauna Beatty 2002 Porsche Boxster 46.665


So all in all, not bad for the little 7. We've got one more SCCA Auto-X (in Packwood) and one more PCA one (at PIR), then the season's over. I picked up a RB header, so it might be nice to actually have a single mod on the car! Remember, I still have EVERYTHING (air pump, A/C, smog/emissions equipment, rat's nest, mechanical fan, etc, etc) stock!

Keep in mind that if you add that header, you'll move up to CSP. If you go that far, you might as well strip the emissions and go all out with the suspension. CSP is a pretty tough class to compete in.

Nice to see some rotaries sticking it to the Germans!
