A 69.5 with No Cones and No "SH*T!"s: Pictures and Top 20 Times from BMW CCA Boston's 2012 Autocross Event 4

Based on Event 3's math, we concluded that every time you yell "SHIT!", you gain half a second. Developing driving skills therefore is useless; the name of the game is to yell "SHIT" as fast as you can while driving the course! Hank Wallace, who missed the FTD by 3/10s at event 3, vowed to yell "SHIT!" as often as he could at the next event. That seems to have worked very well for him as he got the FTD at event 4:

Looking mean. All these cones are not scaring me!

What do you do if you have 2 Honda Civics 
and can't decide which one would be faster?
Why, bring both of course and find out for sure!!

  1. Nice pic of the car. I may have had FTD, but Lana was less than .2 away from that time. Watching her best run video I have to say that she was quicker in a number of places. She's going to get me soon!
