The other is running my 1999 Mazda Miata in local AutoCross events. I have been the Buccaneer Region Jacksonville Chapter C Stock champion from 2007 through 2011. Not sure about 2012 as I missed several events, and I had second last year as I missed half the runs.
A month ago, we ran at the Gainesville Raceway's road course, where I finished second in a class of 6, and seventh out of 93 overall in the handicapped scoring. Excellent day for me. This past Sunday, we tried a new location, the Amelia Island Airport, where the track surface was sketchy and the coned, course set up very tightly. This should have been good for me, but I couldn't go fast without hitting cones (2 second penalty each). So I finished third in a class of four, tenth overall out of 53.
AutoCross is the simplest form of auto racing, everyone runs separately and the runs are timed to allow us to compete. The competition is in classes and overall. The overall winner is determined using the PAX scoring, with a multiplier based on a history of times of each class. I am now running what they call E Street, with a PAX of .814.
In two weeks we are back at Gainesville. I have to choose to race or ride with the club to Valdosta, Georgia. I wish I could do both.
