Houston Regional – GrandSport Speedway
Last weekend we made the trip down to GrandSport Speedway to run with the Houston SCCA. Road course based autocrosses aren’t our favorite, but at this point we’re doing anything we can to get some good seat time! Both of us drove fairly well and ended up 2nd and 3rd in PAX, about a tenth of a second apart. I won’t go into the woes of the event, but neither of us got the official runs that we should have, so my fastest was my 1st run and Todd’s fastest was his 2nd! Nonetheless, it was a good event to get a feel for the car and after a week of reflection, it was good to go to, even if it was frustrating in the moment!
Fellow CP driver, Tony Espinosa was there running with Alan & Donna Bartling, along with Gene and Barbara Beaird. Todd and I ran X-Class in the afternoon, but these guys all had fun in 1st heat! Here’s a little video for Tony for your enjoyment!
I ended up standing on my 1st run; however I didn’t get any of the side camera on that one. My 3rd run, by Data Acquisition was my fastest (60.029), but unfortunately the timers didn’t pick it up! Since fast videos are always better, here it is!
Todd’s fastest run was officially a 60.009. By data acquisition it was 60.032 for comparison against my run. Too bad data doesn’t count!
Both of us felt the car had better runs in it and you can see that from our driving and most of all from the data!
