A record-breaking 171 drivers participated in the first NNJR SCCA autocross of the 2016 season, besting the previous record of 162. Each driver got FIVE! runs, and it was all finished in under six hours. We’d like to thank everyone for their hard work in making the event run smoothly and quickly. Heat one began with temperatures in the mid 40s, but sunny skies quickly warmed things up. In C Street, Keith Scala led the class in his 2009 Mazda RX-8 after first runs. Scala maintained his lead, and put down a 45.750 on his fourth run for the class win. Steven Berrodin and Tamra Hunt
The day began innocently enough. I enjoyed my morning home with the family until my good friend and longtime racing buddy, Perry Aidelbaum, picked me up at noon to head to Norwalk, CT where we’d been invited to sample some racing simulators at a new facility called Crimson Simulation. These weren’t your ordinary simulators like you’d find in an arcade, these were indeed the real deal, the type that simultaneously builds better drivers & ruins any semblance of daily productivity in one simple step.
