Me Racing The Celica Alltrac (Auto-X)

Postby 2_Liter_Turbo » Mon Mar 22, 2010 8:03 am

Well, I competed in the Spring Enduro Auto-X Event up in White City, OR (Medford area). Had a blast, except that my Celica's turbo went out earlier that day (built about 1 psi per 1000rpm), so I didn't have the power that I should have, lol. The video is of a practice run I did the day before the race itself.

wow, that's a fast "autox" -- more like a solo I / time trials it looks like (there were no slaloms)... that's crazy... but looks really fun~

I might just plan to be there! I'm pretty sure they partner up with St Lac (local car club) that my brother is a part of and he lives quite close to Shannonville and it looks like its worth the trip

Yep, St. Lac puts together and runs the autocross event at Picton Airport. They run a smooth event. I have known Rob Brunner through these meets and he's a great guy... :)

Yeah it was the first time on the "Kart Track". I've always done the cone/parking lot style auto-x, so this was new to me! It was super fun (minus the lack of power I had, lol)!
