Autocross Enthusiasts Across South Florida Invade Buckingham Airfield

Buckingham Airfield Autocross Results

 
 
Autocross enthusiasts from across South Florida descended onto Buckingham Airfield on Sunday, October 13th to test their skills in the final Everglades Region PCA autocross of 2019. A near record entry of 50 cars tackled the historic, concrete runways in Lehigh Acres. Buckingham is always a favorite, thanks to the wide open facility and long lap times ….. unless you are one of the top drivers who hustle their cars around in under 60 seconds.
 
Darrin Disimo scored fast time of the day in both raw time (57.748 seconds) and adjusted PAX time (46.718 seconds). Never under estimate a Mazda Miata on an autocross course!
 
Joe Wright, behind the wheel of his Porsche GT3, recorded third fastest raw time, which also translated to second quickest PAX time. Good job Joe!
 
Five more Porsche drivers scored top ten raw times including:
 
Teddie Alexandrova – Cayman S (5th)
Rad Delgado – GT3 RS (6th)
Tom Kring – Cayman S (7th)
Steve Kidd – GT3 (8th) 
Greg Hahn – 991 Turbo S (10th)
 
Special mention to Everglades Region member Mike Drake who hustled his 991 Carerra S into 10th place on PAX time. 
 
If you are wondering which Porsche models are quickest around an autocross course, this list of cars gives you a pretty good idea. Oh yeah, the drivers are VERY good too.
 
The complete list of Raw and PAX results are posted on this website, egs.pca.org, under the Driving Events – Autocross tab. Scroll down to find the results section.
 
Stay tuned for the the 2020 Everglades Region autocross schedule …….. bring your Porsche out and experience what it was designed to do. 
 
Thanks as always to Everglades Region Motorsports Chair – Tom Kring for his tireless efforts organizing and running another successful event !!

10 Autocross Hungry Racers Compete at Venice Airport Event

10 Autocross Hungry Racers

Came Out for Seat Time At Second Venice Event.

In the heat of the South Florida summer it’s difficult to convince anyone but the diehards to come out to a late July autocross. Even more difficult on this day, as there were two other autocrosses on the 21st along with being the first day of Parade in Boca. Nonetheless, 10 autocross hungry racers came out for seat time at our second Venice event. A lot was learned from those of us who came out to our first event at the Venice airport in May and we were able to set up a challenging course designed by Tom Kring with average times in the 40 second range. With the small numbers everyone got as many runs as they and their car’s tires could handle. We all did 7 runs before lunch and then had an hour or two of fun runs after.

Trevor Jones took the top raw time and PAX time of the day in his new Audi TTRS whose all wheel drive proved to be the right prescription for the multi surface track conditions. At least the Audi is family.

Dave Wells had the 2nd fast raw time and 3rd quick PAX in his STX prepped Subaru BRZ.

Tom Kring was 3rd raw and 2nd PAX in his M235.

Jonathan Ponader was the fastest Porsche of the day  in his 2002 Boxster S.

Tom Pitser, our Treasurer, in his 3rd ever autocross continued to improve tremendously in his three events doing especially well for a novice on these difficult course and track conditions.

The full Raw and PAX results will be posted on this website, egs.pca.org, under the Driving Events – Autocross tab.

Everglades Region will be holding our next autocross on Sunday, October 27th at Buckingham Airfield. An email will go out in September with event and registration information. We are also planning a Solo Pro school for the end of the year. More details on this event will follow as we move forward with planning.

*Gulfcoast Autocrossers
