I have been checking the forum for the course map since morning. Guess I am the first one to see it on the forum after you posted Jeff. Been two months since I autocrossed. Just can’t wait for the Sunday.
The Slalom looks exciting. I am sure the cone work at station 5 has do a lot of cone shagging, especially the cone in the center would need some additional care.

Looks like there’s a little trap for the unwary in the middle of that slalom.
It’ll be interesting to see if my decent showing last month was just a fluke.July 11, 2014 at 11:00 am #6476Michael KolesarParticipant
This one sure looks fun, man I go away for a couple months in the summer and you have two really fun looking courses. I am so jealous.July 11, 2014 at 8:25 pm #6477ricardo jaminParticipant
Looks like a fun course. I wish it on Saturday instead of Sunday.July 14, 2014 at 12:04 pm #6485Jack YuModerator
Continuing in the tradition from last month, here are my notes again. I ended up with a 42.0xx.
Would love to hear feedback as I think I there was room for improvement in my times. I did not improve after my 4th run. I think this course was very technical and punished you heavily for over-driving, but overall very challenging!

Yup! Pretty much what I did, except for the right hander before the first real straight. I went out wider than your line suggests.
The course rewarded smoothness and a tight line. I cleaned things up on my last run after struggling for a few runs and dropped .5 seconds.
My coachee in RG3 did exactly the same and his last run was something like .6s faster than his previous. I may have been more excited than he was.July 14, 2014 at 4:28 pm #6501Hal DortonParticipant
I found this course to be all about patience. My line in the big right hand sweeper (showcase) next to the finish was quite a bit wider keeping my speed up and tail braking into the right turn staying close to the right side.July 15, 2014 at 1:26 pm #6505Jack YuModerator
Yep, both of you are right, I don’t think anyone got that close to that corner, including myself. I just did the computerized line as the shortest possible route, but sometimes, it needs to be adjusted to maximize speed.July 15, 2014 at 2:51 pm #6506Hal DortonParticipant
My shortest distance lines are often faster unless I can get some speed in certain sections. “Drive the fast stuff fast and slow stuff slow.”July 15, 2014 at 3:49 pm #6508John KimParticipant
Looks like fun. Sorry I missed it. Went hiking then to watch the World Cup final instead.
