My first autocross!
On the weekend of 25th-26th February, 2017, I took part in my first ever competitive driving event, what we call here TT. Day 1 is what we call gymkhana, and what you guys stateside call autocross. Day is drag races. Event happened at an under-utilised tarmac airstrip, with very loose gravel on top. A lot of the more powerful cars easily spun out.
Now, I performed predictably badly (results are here), day 1 I was 7th last (out of 35, i think). Day 2 I was 3rd last. Overall all, I was third last. 99% of it is because of driver mistake. I made a gazillion mistakes.
All through DSC was on, so when I took the corners a little too aggressive, I would feel power being cut. For the drags, I missed gear 3 in my two timed runs.
That said, I had a ton of fun, and learnt a lot. I cant wait for the next event.
This forum has taught me a lot. I spend way too much time reading posts here, and it is in this regard that I seek specific a little bit of advice:
The only upgrade to my car at the moment is an AWR rear motor mount, 88 durometer, which tool several months to get to me after purchase.
Top Priority Upgrades
Less Priority Upgrades
Can someone more enlightened than me point out flaws in my plans above?
