Autobahn Track Day – July 24th, 2017
The first event of the Triple Crown is now under our belt! Folks started arriving a little after 7:00am to get signed in after a bit of traffic jam coming down from the north. The weather was beautiful with partly cloudy and about 78 degrees with a slight breeze to keep you cool. Trailers got parked and unloaded and the talking smack(all in good fun) and camaraderie started.
The drivers meeting and the donut/water consumption began at 8:15 and at 8:30 the track went hot. We had 3 run groups with 30 minute sessions with a total of 6 sessions. The track started off in the morning still being a little wet with water streaming across in a couple spots so those that went early had a few slippery issues but after a while dried out.
Around noon we broke for lunch to have a bite to eat and be ready for the afternoon sessions. The afternoon was dry and people started turning some pretty good times.
We did have a few black flags for all due to a few cars getting off track or from mechanical difficulties, but the upside was no one was hurt. We started wrapping up around 4:00 with trailers being loaded and trophies being awarded. There was a total of 22 racers for the day. All in all it was a great way to kick off the Triple Crown for this year. See you at the next race day.
