As a few finishing touches are completed on the car to start racing, the 2012 calendar listing autocross race events in the metro DC area(bottom right of page) has been updated. I hope you find it useful!

Had a great time at CDC's autocross on 9/10 at Woodbridge, Va. The route design was very different that the courses usually done at this location and myself & many others really liked it. After a week of flooding rain, the sun and a nice gentle breeze was out making for a great day. Lots of good competition showed up for small bore class. The Millennium Falcon piloted by yours truely didn't do as great as hoped but still came away pleased for representing vegan powered racing and rubber duckie racing.

Results were released from Sunday's autocross event in Winchester, VA hosted by the Mercedes club and I pulled off a 3rd place in raw time overall and 9th place overall in index! I was bested by a Lotus Exige and supercharged Mustang Cobra.

So there has been some major updates with team Slowe Azz for the start of the 2011 autocross season. (just not a lot of major post updates, sorry!)The mx5 has now gone into semi-retirement from racing with the addition of a 1986 Corolla GTS (AE86). This car has the 20v 1.6 blacktop motor installed, aftermarket exhaust, koni coilovers, manual steering, no HVAC, upgraded front sway, partially stripped interior with racing seats & harness, seam welded and much more. Also with this addition have plunged into the deep pool of r-compound tires. Pictures and video will be added soon as so far it has only seen one race. Next event is tomorrow in Frederick, MD. The 'Rolla has been dubbed the Millennium Falcon ("she doesn't look like much but she has it where it counts") and occasionally requires a good smack to get the hyperdrive working. =) The MX5 still remains Slowe Azz and together they create Vegan Powered Racing Team.
