    Wow. Looks really fun. I hope they do something like that in my area. What other safety equipment is required for high speed auto-x? Hopefully next summer I'll be started auto-xing myself...

    this was classified as a "regular" autox, so nothing beyond the proper Snell rated helmet and properly working seat belts/restraints.

    the course was to be run in reverse the following day which would have been faster yet, but they changed things up slightly ( a few extra slaloms/offsets) to slow it down a touch- still plenty fast mind you

    What was the cracking sound when he would get into some of the sharp corners?

    extremely firm suspension that is probably causing the mic to crack- my guess

    The auto-x course(s) they run in warminster, Pa... which is a few miles down the road from where I live seems to be a good amount slower, but mind you I have not driven it... at least not yet. By restraints do you mean to imply you need a harness? or will the cars seatbelt do? Sorry to hijack your thread.

    seems like a nice middle ground between autoX and track days. how much longer are the runs time/distance wise. i know we'll never have anything like that in the San Diego region since we're struggling just to keep a location to regular AutoX.

    ^^ harness or seat belts

    ^ that was ~ a 2 minute course- so pretty long by autox standards

    So is that place some kind of old track or airport or something? It seems kind of weird having all that paved road just out in the middle of nothing. Any idea what it used to be?

    not what it used be, what it is now it's owned by the state for emergency service driving training-purpose built, very fortunately they rent it out on weekends for a reasonable fee
