The autocross season ended on a high note. Weather was a bit brisk, but mostly dry after the early morning runs. We had 44 entries, another great turnout for what I think was our most challenging course of the year. With each event I tried to increase the difficulty to test each driver’s skills. The course turned out to be a nightmare for me, as I continually kept hitting cones and even had a DNF. At the end of the day, our own Steve C. took top FTD honors besting a Ford Focus RS by .3 seconds and a Porsche Cayman was a close third.

The 2019 season will start up sometime in April, so watch the website for dates once the club calendar is set. There is a catch though. We have been informed by Lincoln Tech that their insurance provider will not allow automotive events effective immediately. If you happen to know of a location we can check into for next year, please contact me.

I would say we had a very successful season as my first year directing the program. However, it would never have happened without the volunteer support that was there all year. Our talented crew of instructors also added an element that helped our novices enjoy our events and become better autocrossers. Thank you, everyone!

The rally I did this past July will air the first episode on December 5, 2018 on MAVTV at 6 pm and 9 pm. If you have Fios, its channel 810. I do not know what channel it would be for any of the other cable systems, so check with your provider.
