Just wondering, how does the number of off-course runs vary between heats?
I didn't include two of the Cutlass drivers because they didn't attempt a lot of their runs.

Heat one: 32 drivers, 112 clean runs
Heat two: 30 drivers, 99 clean runs

Heat 1 average 3.5 clean runs per driver
Heat 2 average 3.3 clean runs per driver

Heat 1 cones: 39
Heat 2 cones: 13

Heat 1 off/dnf: 15
Heat 2 off/dnf: 38

By the last lap it was so slick when i nailed a cone it just slid across the track straight up without falling over haha.

I saw that!!   The last time I saw a cone do that, I was taking a class in Canada driving on ice & snow.


Just wondering, how does the number of off-course runs vary between heats?
I wasn't paying attention first heat, but second heat it just seemed like there were a lot, and most were
not due to the weather. (A lot of people kept going wrong side of that first pointer cone for example.) 

Actually the wrong side of that cone was rather common in both classes. I worked station one in heat one and even the courses designer did it twice. Its always the simple things that get you

  We need an official rematch ! Everyone from the first autocross should come to the next autocross and we will run the same heats/separations and do another comparison : D

  Being totally serious though heat 2 had so many off courses that would explain why there were fewer cones listed. How many dry runs did heat 2 get I figured they got at least one but that's just a tease.

Agreed nothing like running r comps in the snow.

depends where you started i was close to the end and by the time i was at the line the rain was full hail. So sad after verona the week before. So if we do this rematch who is going to chip in on a snow machine for the first heat?

If we do find a snow machine, don't forget second heat drivers have to WORK in it while the first heat drives.
