Re: 2018 Postseason Solo 11/18

What an interesting autocross Sam put together yesterday....Australian Pursuit it was called. I didn't pursue any Australians that I know of, didn't see any kangaroos either, but I had a good time. And what a different experience! It was: 1. A different mental game. Normally I like to think and cont...

Re: 2018 OMR Solo #11 - season ender

Wow, what an experience. A great experience for most, I hope. Not too great an experience for me. First, congrats to Mark Foley for not only top PAX for the event but also for clinching Autocrosser of the Year! Great job Mark! Mark was worried that if he didn't score any points and I won the event, ...

Re: 10/7 Auto-X car share

Whoo-ee, did we have a crazy time yesterday. I'm talking about D Street class as well as the rain. DS entries swelled to 7 with the car-hopping of Mark and Sam. You put two excellent drivers in competitive cars, mix in some moisture, and you've got a turn-about in results for DS. Well done Mark and ...

Re: 2018 Solo #9 9/17

What an interesting course. Mark Foley designed a course for drivers, I think, that demanded correct lines, right braking points, and some discipline. Just because Mark ended up top PAX (congrats to Mark) does not suggest it was a course built for his car. The PAX results show a variety of types of ...

Re: 2018 Solo #8 8/12

"That course we ran last Sunday, that was a lot of exercise, wasn't it?" "Exercise? You mean walking it because it was longer?" "No, not exactly. Exercise shifting." "Shifting? Wha'd'ya' mean shifting." "I shifted 9 times each lap. After thinking about it I should have shifted 2 more times." "Nine t...

OMR Solo 7/15/18

Hey Everyone, Did you survive the autocross on Sunday? How about the heat? How about the crossovers? Did you figure out the flow of them? OK, did you survive the last Chicago box? Think it was too slow? Yeah, me too. Setting up a course, especially if you don't do it very often, is an exercise in pa...

2018 OMR Solos #3 & #4, 5/19 & 5/20

Hey All, Wow, what a weekend! Two great courses designed by Brad Holliday. The rains missed us for the most part....the exception being the storm Sunday morning early that blew Saturday's course into the weeds so it all had to be set up again. Brad craftily made a course Sunday with a couple of wate...

Re: 2018 OMR Solo #2 4/15

Hey All, Gee whiz was that cold. I shivered all through the first heat and my mouth sort of froze up so I couldn't form words. In spite of the weather the event ran well, there were no safety problems, and it didn't rain. Thanks to Scott for his organization and to everyone for working in those cond...

Re: 2017 OMR SCCA SOLO Event #2 4/30/2017 At Crowder College

OK, we finally were able to run OMR event # 2, otherwise known as the Oct. 22 makeup autocross. It was cold, rainy, wet, windy, sunny warm, and slippery. First heat drivers had a wet course to drive on. Second heat drivers had a dry/wet/dry/wet/dry course to drive on. I want to be the first to congr...

Re: 2017 OMR SCCA SOLO Event #8 10/08/2017 At Crowder College

Hey All, I also wish to thank Jim for a great course. Thanks also to all the folks who participated and worked. OMR rocks! I enjoyed it greatly even though I found the water hazards challenging. For the first time this year I feel like I'm learning how to drive this particular Mini Cooper. Congrats ...

Re: 2017 OMR SCCA SOLO Event #7 7/17/2017 At Crowder College

I stand corrected. I now agree with Scott. Here, restated in this post, are the contenders who have a mathematical chance for AOTY, their points and their number of events. Kent Willer, 48 points, 6 events Mark Foley, 35 points, 4 events Jason Mulkey, 35 points, 5 events Bud Weeks, 34 points, 6 even...

Re: 2017 OMR SCCA SOLO Event #7 7/17/2017 At Crowder College

Yes, I see we have a difference. Am I correct that points are awarded this way?
1st, 15
2nd, 12
3rd, 10
4th, 9
5th, 8
6th, 7
7th, 6
8th, 5
9th, 4
10th, 3
11th, 2
12th and below, 1 point

This is the way I remember the bylaws; maybe my memory is faulty. I'll look at my figures again.

Re: 2017 OMR SCCA SOLO Event #7 7/17/2017 At Crowder College

Hey Everyone, Well, my feet have just now dried out and my shoes may be dry by the weekend. To those who left before runs started---and I can understand the frustration of having to wait for who-knows-how-long for the lightning to clear---you missed a very fun event. It was worth the long pause. Not...
