I’d like to congratulate the AX team on a great event last Saturday: the chapter’s first-ever autocross school. You guys did a great job of putting this together in such a short time. I thought things went very smoothly on the whole, and I certainly had a great time.
I was very impressed with the students, too. They all clearly came to learn and worked really hard all day, improving dramatically despite the increasingly challenging driving surface.
I’d love to hear what other attendees, students and instructors both, thought of it. I’d also like to encourage more instructors to come out for the next school—the number of students that can be accepted is mostly constrained by the number of available instructors.July 20, 2015 at 8:35 pm #7940
Very well said Andy. A tip of the hat to the AX leadership. Nice one chaps.
In my opinion it was a great day for all involved. I believe that we achieved an Evo Phase I teaching experience, with stronger social interaction, at 50% of the cost. I’d call that a result. I can only hope that this event becomes an Annual or bi-Annual fixture on the GGC calendar. Many of the students will pose strong competition in whatever class they run. I also have no doubt that some of them will move on to be instructors at future events.
I hope that we do hear from some of the students, as I’d hate to just be drinking my own Kool-Aid…September 18, 2015 at 8:34 am #8131Teddy FramheinParticipant
Have to bump an old thread. I had no access to any of the threads in these forums until recently, otherwise I would have replied earlier.
Had a great time at the AX school! Tons of seat time, just what I needed. The surface was ‘interesting,’ but that might have made the day more instructive. Thank you to all of the instructors.
I know there was a photographer on-site. Were his pictures posted anywhere?September 18, 2015 at 10:28 am #8132
Hi Teddy. Thanks for the feedback. I was hoping that we would get some perspective from the students. I think each student got around 25 runs, which is equivalent to 4 normal GGC autocross events. That is a lot of seat time!
I pinged Jeff regarding photos about a week ago and there were around 20+ that were taken by the photographer you mention. I’ll ask Jeff to post the link to this thread. I might also suggest that you take a read of the October edition of the ‘eBombe’ when it comes out…. 😉September 23, 2015 at 9:45 pm #8161October 29, 2015 at 3:19 pm #8269Jack YuModerator
I just read Nigel’s article on the Autocross school in the eBombe, very entertaining read! Well done Nigel!October 30, 2015 at 1:24 pm #8271
Nigel, you should write more often ! I enjoyed cat and wife swap, too. 😉November 3, 2015 at 3:20 pm #8275Teddy FramheinParticipant
Add me to the list: thanks, Nigel! Great writeup.February 9, 2016 at 6:37 pm #8565
Hi Folks. Thought I’d bump the AX Beginners School thread from last year as we are only 11 days away from the 2016 event. Woo Hoo!! I really enjoyed this event last year and am looking forward to seeing a new group of students along with the stalwart crew of instructors. Word is that Jeff is having gravel specially shipped in from San Jose. Should be good times… 🙂February 10, 2016 at 6:20 pm #8572
Asked myself what is Chicago Box. Googled. There are nice diagrams starting on Page 8 here http://racingready.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/beginning_autocross_clinic.pdf Is it somewhat different from Bus Stop ?
I found those diagrams useful. May be our students will do, too ?
