April couldn’t have come soon enough for the AX fans among us. Our first autocross took place over the April 17-18 weekend at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA. Our sister region Sacramento Valley Region (SVR) ran on Saturday, and we ran on Sunday.
It was a fast and fun course that we took in one direction on Saturday, and the opposite direction on Sunday, with a few modifications.
The weather was beautiful (if not a little hot, TBH), in the low to mid-90s, but that didn’t slow anybody down.
Monty Pack from the Golden Gate Region took home Top Time of the Day with a 43.496, and Drew Powers, RR Co-AX chair was fastest in PAX. What separates the top competitors is often a 10th or 100th of a second between drivers. It always fun to watch them compete, and to witness the camaraderie of the whole group.
We hope you’ll come out to Thunderhill October 16-17 for our next two-day weekend event with SVR. We’ll be at Sonoma Raceway as well this summer — we’ll announce those dates shortly.
