Sneed Speed Shop Cross Trial Series #1

Im a couple weeks late posting this one but in mid April we took the short trip from Charlotte to Raleigh to race in the first of a two race Airport CrossTrial series hosted by Triad NC SCCA and sponsored by Sneed Speed Shop.  The race was held at the Old Sanford Airport and the cars were classified by there normal SCCA solo regulations and then PAX timing was used for overall standings in the series. The track was very large but quite simple with a lot of slalom's, but the track ended up being close to 1.75 miles due to the doubling up of the main section. The G35 thrives in these side to side slalom motions and the new Bridgestone Potenza RE-11's were finally seeing the heat they have been thriving for and were hooked at 7 grand going through the tight parts of the course. After three runs down I knew there was a little bit left on the table and picked up about .45 sec on run 4 to win the FS class with a 161.937. The second race in this series is in mid September so we will see how it shapes out. Here is a video of the 4th run.
