My First Auto X Event

Best run of my first event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. I have to admit, it was fun and I see how people can easily get addicted. Well anyway, check it out.

im going to my first autox soon. looks hard because the cones come up fast and not sure where to go. I guess the more you drive it, the easier it gets. I know I will go the wrong way but you made it look easy

Thanks man. It's always good to get there on time or early so you can do a walk-through of the course. It helped me out a lot. This was my first time and I didn't go off course, hit a cone, or get DNF.

Key is to look ahead, 2-3 corners in advance

Lots of advice out there for AutoX if you want to get technical, but that advice is the best bit to understand.

All your speed is in setup. Learn to love your side windows. Smooth is fast.

Have fun - sounds like you already got the bug! It's seriously addicting once you gets started
