I havent ...... and need a new helmet to do any NASA events ..... but where I live there is a Group that does autocrosses .... its a organized event and held mthly near where i live at a deserted 

air field .... cones ... etc .... timed event and I am thinking of doing that .... safer and I dont think you need a helmet but I would still bring it

 

If and when I do it I will re post and shoot everyone some pictures

Biggest mistake I ever made was to sell a track prepped 90 Taurus SHO and that dog could hunt. Ran it at Autocross events and Nasa events ..... 

 

 

Wife told me to put it on ebay since i hardly ever had time to use it so I came up with some stupid high price and someone bought it ...... I WAS PISSED

I am booked to go to autoX school next weekend. Any suggestions on tire pressures? The advice for tire pressures from the autoX school is to come with 40 lbs. I drove my GT350 on the track last summer and 40lbs was too much. My tires did not have as much grip as 37-38 lbs warm..

they suggest higher pressure and bring a torque wrench ...... after each session re-torque your wheel studs ..... they can back out a tad .... a old racer suggestion

DId my autocross event in Fort Myers and I wasnt as competitive as I wanted to be.

 

Dont think it was the car but more of the driver and the course.

 

Its about a 90 second run through a bunch of cones and after being a spotter on the track for a hour and half of the sun beating down on you it was my turn

 

The sun and not getting enough sleep the past few days didnt bode well for good times. The course crew gives each car 5 runs and I ended up doing two runs

before I called it quits. I was too exhausted and didnt want to hit a cone and potentially damage my low hanging front splitter. Too make matters worse

somewhere on the course i mis took the cones saying X when they should have been saying Y and I was off course both runs which is a DQ

 

Out of 100 cars I finished dead last. I got home and went right to bed with my tail between my legs !

Its alot of fun for sure ...... A autocross event on a real open tarmac is pretty safe ..... you decide to race the car at a prof track such as Sebring or Road Atlanta one should

seriously consider getting insurance on there car

In my younger years I was really big into the 90-91 SHO's and raced them. They were actually a very good handling car with just a few modifications. 

 

Now this isnt prof racing .... more like going to a NASA event or the local Porsche club get together.

 

But that being said, I have had the privilege of racing at the following tracks.

 

Sebring International Speedway

 

Mid-Ohio

 

Hallett

 

Road Atlanta

 

My favorite .... hands down Mid Ohio
