Heres one of my better passes at Evergreen speedway autocross in Monroe Washington on 05/07/2016 it was a 1.01 flat.
as you can see the course was tight! My challenger had to have been the heaviest car there by about 1000lbs my buddies classic Nova (seen briefly in the beginning and end of the video) weighs 3400. There were 52 or so cars there total and I came in somewhere around 35. I felt ok about the day, given the course and the state of my now well worn Pirellis. there was a 71 two door Datsun with a 155 hp motor that went 55 seconds that day, most impressive car there. The winner went 54 seconds in an Evo. This was my second autocross in the car returning after four open road course runs.
Autocross sucks in comparison to road course. Just not enough racing, and its slow. a day at the big track can net you 6 twenty minute sessions on a 2.5 mile course. a full 12 hour day at the autocross got me 16 one minute runs.
Still fun though! and got to hang with some dang cool folks too.

That was one of the tighter courses I have seen. You definitely need to come to Deer Park in spokane for an event. Or, octocross at the spokane raceway. Or, we can go to Packwood and run an event on the big pad at the sawmill there. All 3 venues are huge and get fun tracks.
I tried a couple different times to go back to first gear for some of the tighter slower spots in the track and it always ended up in wheelspin or oversteer so I stayed in second gear to make my fastest runs
Even in the evo or my old accord, 1st was rarely needed for anything after the start.
