I just need to get that last foot or so gap between my car and the cones, but I really concentrated on taking a tight line today. Winding up less than a second off of top PAX despite those drivers having 6 dry runs is proof that I'm doing something right.

Wanna see me get absolutely smoked by a Lingenfelter Corvette?

The day started out lovely, but then the rains came and my photos got more interesting!

I'm actually kinda sorta proud of my driving today. I think I made decent adjustments all day long and I didn't overdrive the car too too badly. I'm just glad this rainy day stayed in the 70's for most of it. That meant my tires actually worked and I was able to find a good amount of grip.

I came third in class out of six and I was the only driver to not have a dry run all day. Also, I'm pretty certain I finished second in PAX by about a tenth in the people-that-didn't-have-any-dry-runs group.

1st run: YUCK!

2nd and 3rd: Kinda fighting the car and the surprising lack of grip in the morning.

4th run: Tentatively discover a bunch of grip in the afternoon.

5th and 6th: Actually use the feedback from SoloStorm constructively for some moderately respectable runs as well as finally start to get my slalom timing right which was crap for every other event this year.

Side note: I think I need to move my seating position a bit further back, but not by much. I found today that I was losing cones behind my A pillar.

I won my class again! 3 for 3!

I like that Nick pushes me so hard to try to be faster. Such a fun battle each week!

There aren't many because AHR events are pretty small and go pretty quick. Mainly just paddock shots and a few of a cute weenie dog.

I didn't drive great, but I'm not entirely unhappy with my driving today. I knew the car had a 29.5 in it, and my buddy Shawn jumped in the car for fun runs and managed to put down two 29.5's back to back. The tires were probably at their warmest by that point and he could carry more speed in the first left and on the first crossover.

I'm still trying to sort out the rear shock settings because I'm still having trouble getting power down with these new wheels. I'm gonna blame part of that on a cool day and rather uneven asphalt.

Also, props to whomever designed this course because it was pretty good despite the postage stamp for a lot the Allegheny Highlands Region of the SCCA usually runs on. They have a late June event at an airport with a flat, slightly larger, and lightpole-free lot to run on and I think I'll take the Miata to that.
