Well we must be looking at the start of the next ice age! We had another great sub 100° day of autocrossing!
the Mothers that stayed away enjoying dinner and flowers you missed out
on a fantastic day of burning rubber, crushed cones, sideways Miatas,
tight competition and race fuel fumes in the air. Outsider, Jerry
Ledford in his '99 M3 showed up the locals with a top time of the day
at 47.018. He should have been in the 46's but couldn't keep it
clean. Jesse Waymire was pretty close, only .556
behind. His best showing of the year. The rest of the top
five were all under 1.9 seconds off the leader. Fifth place oddly
enough was the only sub 250 H.P. car in the top ten (who let that

I hope the weather stays like this for a few more months. We
couldn't hope for a much nicer day. The temps were cool, but not
to cool so those sticky tires heated up nicely! Wes Hughson took
top time of the day in STR 25, and Carvel Webb, TFS 106, had a
well fought battle for top PAX time of the day taking the lead by only
.089 seconds! Other leaders at the end of the day were: Stock, DS
122 Romesh Canekeratne. Street Prepared, BSP 35 Wesley Smith. Prepared,
XP 16 Joseph Kelley. Street Modified, SSM 5 Rodney McCloud.

for a bit of wind, the day couldn’t have been much better for the
February event. The threat of rain from overcast skies kept things
cool. We had just under 50 participants vying for their fastest time on
a course that had tight switchbacks, sweepers and a high speed section
that exercised a few rev limiters. The track layout was another unique
design with the start and finish on opposite sides of the facility. The
course tested technical skills and high speed grip and was a good

We held our first meeting of the year. Unfortunately turn out was a bit light, but we are willing to make a go of it and will be continuing to hold the monthly meetings. We did vote on a couple of things. We made a change to where non-drivers (guests) can park and we raised the entry fees (starting in March).
need to raise the entry fee was pretty clear at this time. The
insurance and sanction rates continue to climb each year, the club has
operating costs it needs to pay, and the bank account was getting very
change to parking is to help speed up the event flow and to help keep
the competitors cars separate from the non-competitors.
Hopefully, this will help stop the problem of competitors loosing their
parking space, where they have placed all their gear to someone who is
just stopping by.

The Wiregrass Region will start holding REAL meetings again! The first one will be on January 26th. The schedule will be the 4th Saturday of each month at 7pm at the 4C BBQ restaurant. It is located on 1045 US Highway 331 South, Defuniak Springs, FL 32433. Click here for directions. Come on out and help guide the club forward.
back! The Wiregrass Region held its first event of the season and
it was a fantastic day! 39 Drivers showed up and attempted to get
the quickest time.
Wes Hughson is starting off the year strong with a Top Time of the Day with a 52.699! The next closest competior had a 53.755 slightly over a second behind. Who will step up and stop the Hughson juggernaut? Will it be a blown SM Mustang, one of the new folks in the C5 ZO6, the British challengers or maybe even a slightly burnt Miata? Come back for the next episode of Wiregrass Autocross on the 10th of February.

2013 Autocross schedule is posted!
Please keep in mind that we have to ask the Army for permission to use Hunt Army Stagefield each month for each event. The Army has until the Thursday before the event to let us know if we have permission or not. This gives us only two days to get the information out that the event is being held or if it is canceled. Please be flexible and patient as we work through this new system.

Welcome back! I hope each and every one of you enjoyed today as much as I did. The day started off a little gloomy with some drizzle on the drive to the track, but by the time the event got underway the course was dry and the sun was out. Greg Sparkman designed a course that was fast and flowing. It even had an unevenly spaced slalom, which caught me out. It was challenging, but not overly so. I didn't win my class, that honor went to Wess Hughson STR 25, but I was thrilled to be back racing at Hunt Stage Field. I also want to thank all of the people who helped setup the event, and tear down the event. There were noticeably more people helping out this month, so thank you very much. See you in January, assuming the Army let's us use the field.
