    Looks like a lot of fun! Don't know that I'd call that autocrossing though. I'd LOVE to drive on something like that regularly. Much more room for our cars to stretch their legs than tight cone courses in parkinglots like most autocross events take place.

    Also, I autocrossed my Cobra for several seasons and I don't really think heatsoak is that much of a problem in these type of events. Horsepower is way down on the list of important variables when trying to go fast on an autocross course. The big, heavy nose is a much more limiting factor in my opinion. I'd gladly give up some HP for some grip. :beer:

    I agree. I feel I give up alot of time in the turns, but make it all up in the straights. As the videos show, the course is alot of straights so the course is a good one for my car.
