It was a pretty big learning experience for sure, glad you bugged me to go Reijo!  ;D

Yes, good point!  It is interesting how a bigger event, even though "only" another autox, can be a really big learning experience, eh?

US/SCCA Nationals is another couple or more steps up yet ... even greater learning experience!    ;)

Glad you partook!

Yeah Cam and Ryan both were smoking through the course all weekend, really impressive!

I had a lot of fun at the event, it was really nice to see everybody from Calgary down there!

OK ... now you can thank me for persuading you to enter!    :D

Well, done ... nice driving Nick!

Here's a couple of notes I thought I'd dig up.

2nd in PAX was Dan Bullis in his '99 Corvette ... in which he placed 2nd in BStreet at the 2016 Tire Rack Solo Nationals in Lincoln.... o.313 sec. out of 1st.

Also, Ryan had beat Alex Muresan in California at a couple of events this spring in BStreet.  Alex had placed 2nd at the SCCA Nationals in 2015 in Lincoln..... by 0.152 sec.

In light of that, I'd say Ryan and Cam put in a great performance this past weekend and earlier this spring.  Well done!

I think we are all assuming this is not a JDM, so is it a domestic? 

Also only trunk kits were for a Miata in '07, and the FRS which also kicked the FRS into another class.  And I think a Solstace ... can't remember any others for sure not the Celica.

So any springs etc. in the TRD would not be legal ... as per Stephen's commentary.

Murray has jumped up (leading in CS by the way) etc.

I am fairly happy with my driving so far, but the pax results just aren't there.  At this point, I just hope to survive the heat tomorrow.  No sprayer, so I will have to put down my best run on my opener -- the Bridgestones aren't happy in this heat.

No sprayer?  Yep, you have a problem... been there done that ... 2005 - Packwood.  I drove better each run but kept getting slower.  That's why your PAX is off.  I don't think I have to tell you that was a mistake.

They have Home Depots etc. in the area, why don't you buy one  or borrow one?  Get Cam or someone to bring it back.

And, Dan has been around long enough, that is there had been a cone down from the car before him, he would have stopped.

I was running timing when the cone call in question happened.  Visually, the guy running the radio (and other people as well) saw Dan hit a cone, but the call came in against the car before him.  Unfortunately, the car nymbers sound much alike --59BC vs 69 BS.  I think that they are looking for in-car video to help decide who hit the cone.

The numbers 5 and 6 also have a similar shape and could have been mistaken.

But if more than one person saw him hit the cone, then that should be the end of it.

Doug mentioned that there is some dispute with Dan Bullis in BS about a cone ... looks like he coned his best runs in the morning and afternoon according to the results ... Have to wait to hear what the story is there.

Cam has extended his lead and Ryan ran FTD PAX this afternoon according to Cam.   Richard dropped off a bit into 7th, Murray has jumped up (leading in CS by the way) etc.

Good job everyone!

Results are all here for Day 1:

From Doug Campbell on FB:

Cam Withell extended his lead in the afternoon. Mustang GT close behind, but Clive Bottomly developed a mechanical issue with his C7 Vette, and had to co drive another A Stock car. Bad tire sensor - limp mode ):-(

Cam is leading from this morning by a 1/10th in overall PAX (which determines the Cdn. Champion) and Richard B. is in 3rd place.  I see Ryan C. is in 10th ... wonder if it is a bit of a point-and-shoot course which favours torque?

Anyway, Cam (thanks Cam!) sent me some results from this morning with the afternoon runs about to start (see attachment).
