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.

39th Annual "Duel at De Anza" (5/18/2008)
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.
Corvette Crashes During An AutoCross Event
This is the first time we've ever witnessed an accident at a speed ventures
autocross. It was a pretty fast track and it was his first time up since
his last break so the tires were pretty cold & so was the track.
Unfortunately the driver never touched his brakes after he lost control.
The driver was shaken up quite a bit, but he walked away.
