Haha.
People come from all over to do that autocross. I meet more people from the bay area than I do locals at those events.
It sure would have been nice to see some of that blue sky in that photo. Good Gawd, that was the coldest day that there has been this season.
It was still a fun day and it was great having all of the Bullitts together in one spot.

Oh, and please tell me that you didn't snap that pic about 5 minutes after you turned onto Hwy 1...

That first picture is awesome! You can actually see the colors better than the more distant shots.

I'm glad the colors came out in at least a couple pics! I spoke with the black Bullitt owner that you met the other day. He spotted my pics on Instagram.

Yeah, the weather was the big disappointment of the day. It just didn't cooperate with us as far as photographing the cars.
It would have been nice to have that fourth Bullitt there but I was just happy that the two of you could make it.
It really made my day guys... Thank you!
I forgot to ask how you guys felt about your tire pressures? Especially Soccerluvr, who was the brave one of the day with the lowest pressure. Have you taken a look to see how far down the sidewall the scrub marks went?
I liked my pressure but I'm going to take a pound out of the rear for the last event this season.

My sidewall scrub marks weren't terribly low. They are around the same that Jonathan's were at. I definitely could have bumped it up a few psi though.

That track wasn't fast enough for us to put a great deal of side load on our tires. Had there been a long straightaway, it would have been a different story.
In hindsight, I probably could have dropped a pound in the front and two in the rear for that track.

Ron, in case you haven't looked it up yet. This is that Ken Block video we were talking about.

That was F'n BADASS!!!!!!
The only time that I saw him hit a barrier was when he went wide around Pastrana.
It's easy when you can do multiple takes though...
Pretty impressive skills nonetheless!
I see now what you guys were talking about, it probably took them a month to film that in all of those different locations.
And I see that the city didn't want to risk the antique cable cars so they had to use the fake cable car buses.
Haha.
Too Cool!!!
I'd forgotten... Thanks for sharing!

Watch some of his other videos, they are amazing.

Thank you Ron! I had a great time thanks to you. I really appreciate you reaching out and getting us all together. My front pressures were pretty good, but I feel like I should add more rear PSI. I felt like I had much more rear grip than front grip.
I'll try a more balanced setup next time.

I didn't take a pic of my tires, but i definitely could have added some PSI, it rubbed slightly lower than Jonathan's.

It was a fun day and I think that was probably the best balanced track of the season, as far as heavy and light cars go anyways.
Dennis saved the best for last...
I had a blast this year! I sure as hell didn't set the world on fire out there but I was able to hone my skills and improve my car enough to be, reasonably, competitive by the end of the year...with comparable cars and drivers anyways.
I highly recommend everyone giving it a try. It allows you to learn the limits of your car without risking any damage on the streets and will make you a safer driver. Sure, you're going to get beat by old ladies in a Lotus every once in a while but suck it up. You have to do it to be good at it.
I have to thank Bullitt1075 for getting me interested in autocrossing in the first place. He's an excellent driver and was one of the reasons that I tried so hard.
I'm not thrilled about how the ESP class has been run by the club but that's something that we'll have to work out next year... If there is a next year.

I guess we'll find out early next year.

I'll give Oaktown a try. Just not on a day when there's an event at Marina.

I was so sure that the Marina city council wouldn't approve the site in time for the first event that I kinda tore my car apart yesterday. Just replacing the alternator but I ordered it from Rockauto so I hope that it gets here before the weekend.

We'll have to get together on scheduling. What club runs the Oakland thing? Is it at the coliseum?
