The OD's have decided NOT to have a walk-thru/ lunch break between heats 2 and 3 due to the return of standard time.

I'm glad I picked this event as my first VMSC event this year.  Great weather and an event better course layout.  Props to the OD's.

Great event! Another excellent fast and flowing VMP course!

Big thanks to Jeff and Audie Chenery for letting me run their STS machine... after trying them in 2 different flavors, I've found they're fun and fast any way you slice 'em. Sorry for giving y'all a heart attack with that trip towards the gravel!

Excellent course yesterday, it was a lot of fun (and a new perspective) in the borrowed FWD GS entry. As soon as I started walking it I was wishing my car had been ready in time for the high speed layout. Great job, and an extra lap makes everyone happy.

Best all around event of the year! No second walk through, changing workers on the fly should become standard.This would enable us to have 5 or 6 runs each event.Great fast,flowing and safe course with a finish line that you didn`t have to turn after you crossed it. I don`t  know if the last 2 or 3 fast course`s are due to recent Vette fever or not but I hope it continues. You got to admit it`s been fun.Heck a stock Miata and MR2 had 2 of the fastest times yesterday and most likely 1st and 2nd in PAX. Benard and Ed that was pretty awesome.

A big thank you from the OD's to Rod McGeorge for his assistance in with the course design. And a thanks to all who helped, especially Bill Whitehead, and Gene Cooley who helped and didn't even run.

Sunday was the epitome of what VMSC autocrosses should be about.

That was an awesome good time.  Thanks to anyone who made any effort on behalf of others, especially Charlie for switching worker assignments with me so I could get home early to carve a pumpkin with my son in our family holiday tradition and to Richard who worked hard to accomodate my special request and to Eric who let me drive his car on such a wonderful course and to David for the photographic memory.

Actually, the same gentleman, (Pasha), who handles on line registration also does the results. Like all of us working types, he fits in VMSC business when he can. So the time varies from a matter of hours to a week or so. After 10 days we'll light the torches and storm his home.

I think he is just mad at me for bringing the Protege back to HS. :evil:

Somehow I knew it was really Scott's fault.

We can light Scott and storm Pasha's house.
