So, my second venture out to join Gamz and Spool2go at Scotiabank Place for the bi-weekly Motorsport Club of Ottawa Autocross, at the home of the Ottawa Senators.

I finally got out and did some ride-alongs (both Chris and Geo took me out, as did their buddy in his Legacy 2.5GT Wagon), and I gotta tell ya, it's definitely not going to be long before I take my own wheels out and flog it around the cones.

That said, what everyone cares about is the pictures. :)


I really dig this one, and cheesily enough, I called it "Eye of the Tiger" *grin* There ya go, Chris, you're concentrating, and everyone knows it!





Of course, Chris wasn't the only one on the track. For his first time out, Geo did stunningly well: I'm pretty sure I'd have held back too much: he gave it EVERYTHING, full boots, all the time. Of course, this led to a couple of spins which slowed him somewhat on a couple of laps, however, when he got it right, it was a thing of beauty to watch:



This was one of those times when it got a little sideways, but it was fantstic to watch! And, Geol's recovery was excellent.








The Gen's weren't the only cars out there, though. Again, a multitude of BMW's, Toyota's, Hyundai's, Mazda's, and others:
















I was lucky enough to be in the passenger seat for Chris's best lap of the day: and holy crap. I kept meaning to try to look over at the speedo, but I just never got chance.

I was, however, starting to look at the cones and how they direct you, so, I'm starting to prepare to go out myself, too. It'll be at least Labour Day weekend before I get to go out again, and when that weekend rolls around, I gotta decide whether I'm going for it or not.

Enjoy, and if you wanna see any of the pics larger, just look for them over on my flickr site.

Good pics as always & glad to see ya'll had fun. You gotta get your car on the track, but beware.....its addictive.
Yeah, it's the addiction that worries me. :D But I always promised myself I'd take it out and REALLY wring it out once in a while, if I got it, so I kinda have to.

I was all worried about tire wear on the hankooks, but I hadn't realized how low the wear rating on the stock GT/Track 19's are! Comparatively, I should be good for ages on the Hankooks with a 280 wear rating.

So, there goes THAT excuse.
