Some pictures from an Autocross event....

I went there planning on driving a formula car but it had problems. Since I already paid, I took the Maverick out! I wasn't the slowest out there, and it was a hell of a good time. I highly recommend it.

You can see in the second picture (taken right after the first) I'm burning out, its tough because it was very high speed film but you can see some smoke and black marks, plus the traction bars have the rearend up a little bit. -CP

Way to go ,Charlie.Looks like fun.I would be a little scared to run my Falcon with its 5 turns lock to lock steering and the tires rubbing on the inner fenders on a tight turn.Better for me to keep it in a straight line.
