Autocross United 2008

Val and I had our first attempt at the autocross event at United 2008 in Potomac Maryland. Val's red Imp did very well. In my opinion it bested Eduardo despite his dual SU carbs and electronic ignition, even though our best times were exactly the same, the red car was doing it with a passenger and I was solo. Val was having a ball. It doesn't look fast from the stands... but behind the wheel it feels fast.

I got some wheel lift on some of my runs and was pushing fairly hard.  My harder tires were not helping resulting in sliding around the cones, where Val's softer tires allowed Lil Imp to just sail around the corners as if on rails.
