Nicely run event.  We had a blast coming down again.  Glad the school on Saturday was a big success and many returned on Sunday.  That's the best way to learn autoX.  That and to bum passenger rides with top drivers at every event, walk with them at the event, and have them ride along with you and critique.  Your skill level will advance exponentially!!  Feel free to ride along or chat.   

We really enjoyed the flow of the course.  It was awesome for such short straightaways.  It made it interesting for small and big cars alike, except for Marc's Lotus which showed us all up with a blazing time.  The tight layout also let us get some light throttle oversteer drift and engine braking drift in.   

We were hoping for rain though, a great equalizer for our Camaro since we both love to drift and drive just as fast in the wet.  One of my favorite courses ever was a wet VMSC event a couple years ago on this lot.  I ran almost 2/3 of the course wide open throttle at the top of 2nd gear (about 70MPH wheel speed), and the course was almost as tight as this event.  Oh well, maybe next time.

P.S. Maybe next time we will bring the 3rd Gen drift car for an exhibition (more fun on the VMP lot).  If not, you can see Zach at about any East Coast drift event this year in it.  Come root on about the only American drift car, and only Chevy (besides my black daily driver backup car) on the East Coast!!!  Grin
