I ran my first autocross Sunday at the Tulsa Fairgrounds. Man it was a blast. I wish I had started sooner. Unfortunately I had to drive the Genesis Coupe. I originally planned to run my BMW 323i, but I was faulted by a single clip. The clip goes to the gear selector, and popped of while doing a final run the night before. It is currently stuck in 3rd until the clip arrives this week.

My first time was abysmal. 77 seconds. I chalked it up to nerves. But each run after, I lowered my time and finally got sub 1 minute runs. I’m already addicted to seeing myself make improvements and competing with myself.

I noticed how prepared everyone was. From tires, to equipment, to how barren their interiors were. I’m looking forward to getting the BMW out to Stroud next month.
