Does anybody have any good pics or video from the SCCA Rallx at Orlando Speedword? I think most of GRM's staff was out there....

There should be some video and pics floating around. All the GRM cars finished without mechanical damage. Some medals were won.

My wifes Forester XT suffered a torn CV boot but completely pwned all the noobs.

Top placing car was a stage rally WRX.

Oh, you had the black Forester? That thing was hauling ass!

We had our crapbox Nissan 300zx running with 2 drivers in SR and myself in PR, and we won both.

I've got in-car video from the Mazda2, Lincoln, and Mercedes that I'm working on when I'm not at work. The photos I've seen so far are all of the Mercedes. I'd really like to find some shots of the mighty deuce...

In reply to Aeromoto:

Yeah thats my wife's DD. It certainly felt fast with the course gates being tight. I knew you all were on the board and had seen the posts on the 300ZX but didn't know the screen name.

From my understanding I got 2nd or 3rd overall. I got first in Stock AWD with something like 3.760 to a well driven WRX that got 3.769. Close race. AWD certainly had the advantage. The 2WD stuff had issues getting off the line without rally tires.

I think I collected two cones on my second run but was otherwise clean. Overall I had a good time. The course was fun but tight. Not much can be done with such a narrow stretch. I would repeat.

I hope they clean out that other area like they said. As I was leaving they stopped me and went over what they needed to do to get us back!!

Those gates were tight. Especially in the f150. If I got it sidways at all I took out a cone. It was still a blast but I think ill get the E30 up and running again for the next one.
