The Driver Control Clinic Saturday was a blast. My partner Dave at the Slaloms was great to work with. We had so much fun. :D All the students had a good time and they learned just how hard it is to get the right rhythm.

Comradely is what PCA OCR stands for.
This is why for 2016 PCA will probably be my only Autocross events I attend. :D

Steve (and everyone else that put on the school) thank you very much.

I think it was Dave that told me to look at the slalom as a series of turns. Sounds simple but just the way he put it kind of clicked with me. I had fun in the Control Clinic on Saturday and actually loved the slaloms on Sunday for the first time.

Also, Steve I took your advise and just grabbed 2nd right after the first turn, let the car lug a bit and got my fastest time.

Thanks again and see you next month.

Thanks for all the hard work by everyone to put it on.

Here is my final run of the day where I managed a 54.5

While I had faster terminal speeds in sections throughout the day, this run had me getting the highest Gs in every turn, and not missing many apexes, etc. So giving up a little to get the clean entry helped me carry more speed through the turns and keep the car more settled.

Wish I would have seen those videos before my timed runs. I would have changed my line in at least two corners for sure, maybe three and shaved some more time off.

But it's information stored for the future. Thank you

I made the journey up from SD, and really enjoyed this event put on by the OCR team. Track was very challenging, but rewarded precise car placement. My camera is mounted a little too low, But here is my in-car Video. Managed a 79.50 in my CC04 911 SC.

Awesome day and one of my favorite tracks. Kudo's on Chuck's layout and also to the autox team for making the day happen. Wish I had a video to share... To me, the track line for the course appeared linked together starting form the exit on 2nd turn( hard left and stay off to left thru next gate). If you nailed it you could do full throttle in third gear by mid 2nd cone of the slalom. It could be cool if during the event we had a video monitor near timing playing vids of practice laps.

Awesome Day!
Awesome Track!
Awesome Staff!
It was A LOT MORE FUN than the BRI results suggest. Thank you everyone for a Great event. I was nice that Steve and Kurt didn't gang up on me again. I had a great time. Here is the lap. I found 3-4 more areas to drop time after watching the video. I was sloppy and could tighten it up. Maybe low 72 or high 71 in there.

Eric you sounded as excited as I was, nice driving!

NO CARL! We are not gonna set up a TV monitor so you can steal all of our secrets. You have to wait until after the race. ;)

Mike, I nominate you to bring a 55" 4k TV ;)

Excellent day as always, even with the oil down and nagging timing equipment woes.
