Attendees of Our Autocross #9 event opened their hearts by raising $1305 during this event. All fundraising proceeds go to our charity partner Rancho Cielo in Salinas, as mentioned in previous month’s blog. GGR is proud to match this $1305 and forward a total of $2610 to Rancho Cielo. Thanks again to everyone that contributed towards this worthy cause.
With time, the course design team is getting creative by adding challenging elements and length to the course. This course, designed by Brant Ballantyne, saw an average lap time of 45.731 from sixty-one participants. We had a fair share of DNFs at this event, with 61 out of 610 laps not technically considered as finished. On the other hand, half the laps (301) were clean laps. Drew Powers got the fastest lap with his lap time of 39.307, with Teddy Framhein coming in second place with his 39.651 second lap time. I am sure Teddy is looking forward to Drew getting his car back. The dominant duo achieved 1st and 2nd place finishes in PAX.
Many of our drivers missed the massive space NASA Crows Landing Test Facility offers to the autocrossers. By popular demand, a bonus event (Autocross #10) is being held at the facility mentioned above on Sunday, November 12th. 56 registered cannot wait for Sunday to come around to participate in this non-points paying event.
