Great video, note that there's music with NSFW lyrics though.

Reminds me of a request- is there any way that you can talk one of your pros to bring the car that they just ran at the SoloII nationals to take a series of runs? That way, there's a real benchmark to compare to.

The drag race is pretty easy- for the most part- a 1/4 mi is a 1/4 mi. But figuring out where challenge cars sit in the autocross realm is more difficult.

Back when I challenged, I had a personal benchmark in my real autocross car. But that only worked for me.

Great video. Wish they had filmed the drag race and concours parts of the event. Maybe this year.

Amazing video. Is there a build thread for the Justang hiding somewhere?

Unnecessary and inappropriate video music is a plague of our times. Just say no people.

Nice to see video coverage of the event.

Barring serious mechanical issues with my challenge car, I intend to take copious pictures and video this year.
