Solo Points 1 event Success

It was a great start to the 2013 Solo season.  March 9 turned out to be an incredible day, both in numbers of participants and weather.  Starting out at a cool 49 degrees, by mid afternoon we had partly cloudy skies with a spring-like 71 degrees.  It was utterly fantastic!!!  We had 85 participants at this event, which is great.  The novice crowd was huge, which is always great to see. 

The Raw times were topped by Jordan Taylor, of Wayne Taylor Corvette Racing, in the FSAE car owned by Charlie Ping.  Charlie came in 3rd place overall, with Brandon Davis splitting up the two FSAE drivers in his "wife's" Z06.  It was great fun having Jordan out to his first ever autocross, and we hope that he is able to come back and join us again.  The top PAX times were headed up by Brandon Davis, with Dennis Sparks in second, and Lyle Cain in third.  I think Lyle and Mike Cavanaugh will have some competition in the Spring Super Solo Shootout this year. 

The top 10 places in PAX were covered by 0.931 seconds.  I want to thank Robert Russom RealtySouth for providing the RAW/PAX Challenge payout at this event, and for stepping up to sponsor the entire Solo year of 2013.  Element Garage will be sponsoring the next RAW/PAX Challenge on March 30, while Bike Link will be the sponsor for our May event. 

We are looking forward to building on this event, and making 2013 a fantastic and challenging year for solo.  Good luck to all our competitors heading to the Dixie Challenge event this weekend.......drive fast, dodge cones.  And good luck to Jordan Taylor at Sebring this weekend.
