Autocross Races the Clock and the Weather
34 drivers turned out for the joint, Everglades / Gold Coast Region autocross at Buckingham Airfield on December 9th. It was a race against the clock and the weather as the cold front moved into SW Florida, bringing wind and rain to the final hour of competition.
Fast raw time of the day went to Dave Wells behind the wheel of his Subaru BRZ.
Mike Drake was quickest Everglades Region driver, finishing third overall and first in Super Stock with his 991 Carrera S.
Tom Kring finished fourth overall and first in B Stock driving his Cayman S.
Once the rain set-in, everyone was treated to a display of wet weather driving by Bryan Heitkotter, nine-time national autocross champion and Pirelli World Challenge driver.
Everyone retreated to Il Primo Pizza & Wings for lunch and the awards ceremony afterwards. Thanks to Bill and Il Primo for taking us in!
