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. Speed Ventures AutoCross 11/19/11

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 Time: 52.222s 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.

OSP '73 VW Super Beetle - 52.303 This course was between gears for me and I was shifting a couple times per lap. I lucked out and got to run while it was still dry :)
