I went to my first autox yesterday, and for those that have not done it, you need to get out and do it. It was an absolute blast.
I went with a ford club (SVTOA) to Fort Devens in Ayer, MA. The track is setup on 3 runways that all intersect in a triangle. It's about a 1.6 mile long course, with some fairly high speed (top of 2nd gear) sections.
I started out pretty tentative, and really didn't know the limits of the car at all. My first couple of times around the track were like 2:29 or so. After a few runs with the instructor I was down to maybe 2:20. Constantly improving, I ended up down at 2:13. I got in 11 runs over the 7am to 5pm timeframe.
I wasn't exactly competitive in my stock wrx against a group of mustang cobra's, but I really wasn't far off of their times. The 'stangs were running 2:08 with a couple of years of experience, so I think I did pretty well.
Best time of the day went to a highly modded.... MIATA. Holy **** was this thing fast. There was a C6 Z06 running 1:54 ish, a 997 911 GT3 RS running 1:52 ish, and then the miata, 1:50. I've got a ton of pics that I'll post eventually.
I definitely have the autox bug now though, I can't wait to get out and do it again.
