      Great time at "Get Started Racing"

      Just got back from the inaugural "Get Started Racing" event at VIR. If you missed the opportunity, you missed a great weekend packed with invaluable autocross instruction, fine cars, nice weather, good food and most of all great people. The school was hosted by Detroit Speed & Jet-Hot High Performance Coatings. These folks know how to do things right. Well worth the money and time.

      I am not a "newbe" to the sport of autocross but more of a novice. I have participated in about 8 to 10 events. Like some of you I have a blast at the events but sometimes I'm not sure what I'm doing out there other than trying to get from point A to B without killing to many cones.

      After attending this school I have a much better working knowledge base of what I should be doing on the course and when I should be doing it. Now I can start working on my time. I hope everyone else had as much fun as I did. Thanks

      Bennie we're glad you learned a lot, that's what this event was all about, we really wanted to remove the competition part of it and concentrate on learning how to drive the course properly.

      I just returned from RTTH8 and was forunate to get in the "Get Started Racing" class. The instruction was GREAT, The techniques and pointers helped improve my times and I believe save some wear on my Tires!
      I plan on participating again if given the chance.
      Thank you JetHot and DSE
