Car: 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata
Tires: Bridgestone RE01R (205/45/16)
Class: SM2 (finished 4th of 9)
Split Time: 26.255s
Venue: De Anza College (Cupertino, CA)
I missed a 3rd place in-class finish by about 0.6 seconds and 2nd by only 0.8 seconds, either of which would have given me a trophy... Oh well, at least the only consolation is that I didn't do too badly for this competition considering I was not running on R-compound tires. :)
I love the way this event was run, using the old-school auto-x format (1st lap is practice and the last two are timed). Also, the course was nice and tight, so it was challenging. I'm surprised that as wild as I was on course, I didn't hit anything.

AE86 Duel at DeAnza Autocross
Duel at DeAnza 2006: 1985 Corolla GT-S on the autocross track for the first time. Stock suspension, and Toyo RA1's on the front.
I had 1/8th a tank of gas left, and the fuel tank has no baffling, so that's fuel starvation for you.
Miata 1.6 autocross save spin
0:40 Start of Lap
1:20 Start of Spin
A bogged start, near spin, but a fast finish, this lap wasn't great, but the top was up so the sound came out better on the camera.
(The back end comes out on a 90 left and I save it into a 180 right)
