    Small, 25-30 seconds max unless Sam gets extra creative. The pavement is good though.

    Hopefully he doesn't try to increase the time with a bunch of first gear features. I would rather have an exciting 27 second course and 6 or 7 runs than a slow 45 second course and 4 or 5 runs.

    Do they cancel the event for rain?

  12. #12
    I took the autocross class in March, and this will be my first autocross. I was wondering:

    -Is loaner helmet availability an issue? I want to buy a helmet, but first want to make sure I enjoy the event as much as the class!

    -What are the differences in the AM/PM secessions? Are there more novices in one than the other? Is one more crowded than the other?

    Generally events are only canceled if the weather causes safety concerns so usually they are not canceled just for rain, you just get wet. =) I know the club does have some loaner helmets for folks to share. I haven't noticed any difference between the two sessions with the club other than some people prefer one over the other. AJ for example usually prefers the morning where I prefer the afternoon (so I can sleep in- a rare occurance in ax). Technically normally having higher temps in the afternoon can result in slightly faster times (although you're also working in the heat too). That's my 2 cents! See ya there.

    Not that I've seen, you just have to drive more carefully. I just prefer it not to rain so that you don't have to be "TOO" careful (ie slow)

    1) yeah there are loaner helmets available. If you want something relatively inexpensive look at the G-Force brand. Its what I've got and its pretty solidl

    2) am/pm no differences just splitting the field so things go quicker vs having to wait all day for the 20+ cars infront of you to go.
