Haha....dont ya love people who identify themselves just a bit too much by the activities they do. I bet his the type of guy who lets ya know his into cars 2 minutes after meeting him.... Although locking yourself IN a miata my not be the safest bet from people like that....but I guess there not bears ..Auto-X fanboys?..scary

haha well we didnt open the doors so we were safe. If the doors were unlocked they would just open it and **** would start spewing from their mouths.

I go to have fun and talk **** with my friends, like any sport event. Not to give others driving tips

don't get me wrong they can be fun...I enjoy a nice romp around the cones and all. thanks to the population in my state theres alot of other people who like screeching around cones too. Hence the 8 hours for 4.30 minutes of drive time....its like loving coffee, and going to the coffee bar all day for a small coffee....I just need to build my own parking lot and buy **** loads of cones and play auto-x with myself......haha..

autocross is fun, i've noticed that those who suck at it will often swear it off and hate on it any chance they get.

the organizers really make a huge difference, i'm lucky to be part of the East TN region. we have a lot of very fast drivers for our size (several national-level competitors) and our events are really well organized. usually they take 5hrs and you get 6 runs. the only part that sucks is that pavement is really hard to find.

I'm surprised the guy in the picture isn't wearing Paris Hilton style sunglasses.

I like autocross too, but haven't done it in awhile because Augusta sucks.

Luckily I've never met anyone like.. that.. autocrossing.

Why autocross sucks:
It's the lapdance of motorsports competition
afternoon rungroup in 110* stockton
4 drivers in one car !die ************* die!

and lastly
Grid directors who gesture you along like your a ******* moron and cant follow the car in front of you. I hate you people, you're worthless, you choose that job because not working would give you a scratch for the day
