PAX is an indexed score. It's used primarily as a way to compare drivers across two different classes. For example, we expect a SB car to be slower than a PT car, so SB has a lower PAX. The actual raw time is multiplied by the PAX to achieve the PAX time. Does this explanation make sense?

Link to some pictures I took:

All my pictures are from Heat 1.

If you don't see your car, want hi-res images, or more pictures of your car, feel free to PM me.

The "edit" pictures mean that the picture has been cropped, so the hi-res one will not be the full resolution (I need a 55-200 lens, anyone want to spot me? :biggrin: )

Fun stuff, I had a great time :)

Thanks for a great event. This was only my second time running with the BMW group (despite being a member) and my first time at this location. I absolutely love the lot!

I was bummed that my BMW was under the weather (my girlfriend and I were driving her Honda Fit - automatic, no camber, blah blah blah), but I still had a blast. Looking forward to the September event back at this spot.

I was definitely impressed with your driving. I was the ass of an announcer calling it a jelly bean.

LOL... I LOVED the jelly bean comment.

The Fit surprises me every time I'm behind the wheel. The car is a blast to drive, and is very nimble. It is (and you do feel it) under-powered, so maintaining momentum is key. The auto paddles shifts are kinda cool, as they will let you bounce off the limiter.

This was only my second time racing it, and the first time racing it with the wheels/tires and springs. It's my girlfriend's car, and this is her first full season racing it. The automatic is slower (we couldn't find a manual sport anywhere at the time), but she's just getting started and wanted less to focus on. Plus, it's probably good to have one auto in the stable, since I'm a bit clumsy.

If you ever get a chance to drive one, do it. You'll probably be surprised too - just drive a manual!

Thanks for the compliments on the driving - looking at my MaxQ files, I thought I kinda drove like crap... that, and the car really needs more front camber (already ordered the parts).

Hopefully my 318ti won't be leaking oil next time and I can bring it!

Thanks again for a great event.
