Last I heard, the Justang had a lead, but that was pretty early in the day.

Just out of curiosity, are the final autocross times raw, or include cones?

The RX8 ran a 40.2 (and we were not aware of any cones), but the sheet says 42.2.

Wifi went down at the track and the cell signal isn't quite strong enough for a live feed. There's a walk-through video of all the cars in the concours on our Facebook page though.
