So that was your pearl sedan that I saw when I was leaving after the morning
session. I was driving my blue avant in the Street Tire class in the
morning. I'm curious to know what your times were, and how your car is set
up. My best time on Sunday was the very slow 48.98. I have been running a
good 4 seconds off the fast pace for G Stock at the last few autocrosses and
have been trying to figure out if it is my driving, or if it is the car. I
imagine a big part of it is my driving, but with the fact that I haven't
seen any other 200s at any of the autocrosses, I haven't had anyone to
really compare with. Last year I drove a Mazda MX6, which is also in G
Stock, and I know that it was considerably faster than the 200. I seriously
doubt the 200 will ever be competitive with the other cars in G Stock, but
it sure is a blast.
