We have confirmed the dates for our 2010 Drift Cross schedule. For the people not familiar with the RSW Drift Cross series, it is unlike anything we’ve seen in our area. We have one track that utilizes both autocross and road course types of driving simultaneously. This caters to both types of drivers who are used to driving tight, slower tracks as well drivers who are used to driving wider, faster courses. We will also be teaming up with the SCCA organization for a couple of our dates in June and August. The SCCA events will be a slower course with more cones to add more turns. They will provide a higher level of competition along with instruction for those who need it.
This is the most affordable way to get behind the wheel on the road course at Sandia Motorsports Park.

However, after a few modifications to the course, people adapted to a slower chicane. A great turnout with some exciting vehicles made the event a huge success for the Sagebrush Community Church.

The first step is to clean out your car. The junk cluttering up the back seat becomes a flying mass of projectiles during a race. The first time I autocrossed my Focus, I was oblivious to the fact that CDs become flying saucers of doom when g-forces are in play. I had a set of ten CDs in a visor mounted case. By turn three, they became a driving hazard by flying right onto my dash, passenger seat, and floor. continue reading »
