Just got home from a beautiful day's autocrossing at Bowie Baysox Stadium with the Capital Driving Club.  It was a perfect day to test out the new coilovers in action!  I stiffened up the rear by another 4 clicks (14 total), and really had minimal understeer issues.  The car cornered flat as a pancake.

In my morning runs, I steadily dropped my times, and the car was handling great.  I ran in the third of three heats, and it was a huge field.  We did not finish our "morning" runs until about 2:30 pm.  I was shooting for 53s, and managed a 54.1 but the tail hung out out in the stop box after tripping the light, and I picked up two cones. 

I was very much looking forward the afternoon runs, and was pretty confident I could hit my target time.  Just as we went out to work (5:00 pm), the announcer said the Bowie Baysox needed the lot back at 5:30.  So I totally got boned out of my three afternoon runs!   :gaah:

Fastest time of the day was a 48.78, posted by my friend Fast Fred in his FFR Cobra.  I could have been closer I think if I had not been denied our second set of runs.

Still, it was a great day to be out tossing the GXP around.  About the only thing that I'd miss the mod meet for.  You Kappa guys are missing out on the fun!

If they do something like that again let me know, if I'm available I'd love to try and make it up there. I try to keep an eye on the SCCA schedule, but I'm in the dark about any other organizations doing events like that.

Certainly would have been a great day for racing. It was on the warm side at the mod meet, but still a very nice day out.

Thanks for the link. Looks like the Bowie and Woodbridge locations are the closest ones. I bookmarked the link, might try to make the August 1st meet in Bowie.
