Joon was nice enough to hook me up and I signed up for the Mclaren AutoX in Salinas. It had been almost 15 years since I last autocrossed, and never autocrossed any of my more recent fast cars.
So I started by going to Salinas Airport, that was fun:
I then did a few runs, and got my times down
this was the best time of the day
My best unofficial time was only 0.5s slower than their chief instructor and my tires were way past their prime, so I was pretty happy with that :)
I got 2 better times even, but they didn't count because I touched some cones
After the autoX, I went to Carmel to enjoy the nice downtown, sea view, and cars:
I got a price, woohoo :)
lots of nice houses
police nicely closed Ocean Av after a while, sigh...
I went to see a few nice stores to kill some time
After a few hours, it was time to go to the Mclaren reception (thanks again Joon)
I had never been to Monterey/Carmel during car week. That wasn't exactly the perfect day to go, but it sure was fun. Glad that I was able to make it.
and I ran into Dan, awesome!
