This was my first event in the car, and as luck would have it, JSCC had to change their course layout for this year because of a new parking lot configuration, so I feel I did pretty good, considering I'm one of the few people who didn't get lost on the new course. The car handles a LOT differently than my 2g; specifically, I noticed that I can rotate the rear of the car a lot more easily than I can with the Eclipse, which made for a few incredibly entertaining runs. It also lacks ABS, which means my usually aggressive braking style didn't work very well in a couple of high-speed corners. The brakes are obviously in terrible shape to boot, which resulted in the car getting pretty squirrelly in a few parts of the course.
The best score of the day was taken by a WRX driven by Dan Hoekstra: he pulled off a 48.04-second run, which landed him the fastest final run even before his handicap was applied. The fastest run of the day was 47.49, run by Brian Reggainie in his Z28. I managed to pull off first place in D class, which made my day.
