I would like to thank Randy, Richie, all of the volunteers, participants, CASC-OR, and SPDA for an absolutely fantastic autoslalom today at the Mosport DDT. over 80 participants, I lost count. Not one incident. And just a fantastic group of people to hang out with and have fun on a weather perfect May day!

Now all you folks with go-pros and camera's clicking all day please post up your videos and pictures.

I want to take a moment and thank everyone that made the day possible.
It has been some time since my last Auto X and it was my brothers first "on track" experience.
Other than some nasty sunburn and feeling exhausted, we both had a terriffic time!

Thanks to all those who took me for a ride and made me pucker up. I didn't take many pictures today but I am sure the few who were near the turns must have some great shots they'd love to share and we'd love to see.

I don't think graham was there. I didn't see his car.

It was an awesome event, probably the best AutoSlalom I've had the pleasure of experiencing. Thanks to everyone who made it possible. I have over 500+ pics I need to go thru and upload.

Few teaser images:

Pretty good turnout, easily 100+ cars in the paddock area.


Drivers Meeting





Scott thinking, "damn how wide are those rears. I wonder how I can fit them on my e30."





More to come.

Great event, as expected! I'm posting my 5th run, which was a 94.134 second run. Listen carefully when I hit the brakes in the stop box. That little whistle noise is my brake fluid evacuating through a brand new pin hole in my hardline. Trailer ride time

Good event guys,a little slow off the hop but went smoothly enough afterwards.Glad you didn't put too many slow bits into the track,some casc guys were moaning a bit but I loved it.Fastest I've gone in my car yet,feels good to use more than 2 gears.
I was kinda hoping someone has some video from trackside of my car in action(little orange thing with big black wings).I have to edit the the FTD run as I gapped out in the heat and left it on for far too long,I'll post it once its up.

Hope you made it home ok Scott,sorry I didn't any spare straps to help ya out.

The late start wasn't our fault, Trillium volunteers were there at 6:30am, track setup completed by 7:00am. CASC registration didn't show up until 8:00am and timing (even later).

Yeah, some of the CASC organizers didn't know we started at 9 and were expecting a 10 o'clock start. We'll make sure that is communicated better next time!

I know just trying to make everyone understand. Normally we're punctual. CASC was also having timing issues which didn't help once we started we were only throughing one car out at a time until the timing gear was adjusted accordingly. That said, once we were running it went very, very smoothly. Thanks for bringing your wicked machine out. It was definitely some eye candy and a hoot to watch! I hope you bring it out to the Powerade Centre next month when we run there again.

I hope to be able to make it to a powerade event,I found a set of proper a-mod wings for sale I'm hoping to buy and have installed soon.Multi element high(er) downforce wings should help me.I was struggling yesterday with brake bias issues and trying to run old slicks for the 1st 4 runs,should've put the new tires of for the 4th run for a little extra practice on the grippy buns.
I think I'd have found close to another 2 seconds with one more run,I found 3 seconds with just the tire change.

Ok back to the shop(spent the whole day cleaning the shaop and packing race crap)the E30 needs some elbow grease too as its filthy.
