I've always wondered when I see people post about winning their first time out at an Auto X event how tough was their competion. Not knocking their driver skills at all but it is all relative to who you are running against in your class. Me for example, I run in STF and my car is no where near maxed out per rules allowed. I'm heavy as well being a cabrio. I only do 3-4 events a year so not really trying to be all I can be in class. I have won a few times this year as our top STF guys have been doing other events, but when they are there I don't stand a chance.. That being said I'll give a shout out to my local Auto X Club as being one of the toughest in the nation. Not neccessary in every class of course. Club has roughly 100 members an average just of 100 cars ( and about 15 of those will have 2 drivers or more taking turns in it ) per once a month event. "Triad Sports Car Club" At the Nationals this year 2 members won their class and 8 others trophied. Gwen Baake - DSL National Champion Eric Sienkiewicz - STF National Champion Ginette Blouin Jordan - 3rd SML (in an SMF car !) Jinx Jordan - 4th SMF (Fastest Day 2) Jadrice Toussaint - 3rd ESP (Lead Day 1) Justin Barbry - 5th FSP Justin Mitchell - 6th FSP James Feinberg - 2nd DS (Lead Day 1) Matt Feeney - 7th STF Kraig Klippel - 5th STS Missing trophies by just one or 2 positions and getting Honorable mention for their awesome accomplishments - Shelby Turbeville , Nikki Edwards , Mina Ingraham and Michael Feeney . Also had a member to win his class in the One Lap of America this year.. Don't remember which class it was right off hand.. Granted it is tough for some to be able to afford to go to Nationals which leaves some very good drivers not being there, but for a club to have roughly 10% of their members to at least trophy is a huge accomplishment I think, and one of which I doubt many clubs can match..
