Just heard from Mark...still in the same lot, but it'll be a different course with hopefully a high-speed section, better than last year.

Hello all....Sorry for the delay getting back to you all. The computers were jacked and had to be debugged, washed, and test driven prior to any online activity.

The AutoX is at the same spot as last year. I know it was tight and slow for some of you, but it was also the result of those who showed up the night before to help me set it up. It can be much faster if we like. Show up at 6pm and help me lay it out. It is way big enough to speed it up a bit and take some of the kinks out of it. I will head out this week and remeasure it and come up with some ideas.

With so few AutoX's available, lets make this one rock.

As for refunds....we are trying to make some money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society with this event. So I would say no to the refunds. Think of it as a donation and your chance to help others and kill some cones.

Mark

I changed the rebound on my inserts, way less nose dive now... thank you very much

This time I will wear pants, so I don't have to stay in my coveralls the entire time to stay warm.

Remember this is a Volvo AutoX. All non Volvo's will be allowed to run for charity cash at the end of the event if we have enough time.
