Paul showed up today, and as far as I know before I left, he had himself a ball! Of course he sure hit a number of pylons (hey, even I did too - the course was tight and slippery!), but it was his first time ever. And I am sure he will later tell you all, that no matter how good you THINK you are with exit ramps, or fast driving on the streets (a NO-NO!), AutoX IS more of a challenge of your skills than you think it is. AutoX really puts you and your car to the test.<p>And NOBODY laughed at him at all! As a matter of fact, one of the older drivers told me he was personally going to make a racer out of him yet! So Paul stayed longer than I did, and was going to have some Fun runs with Craig (his new found instructor) later for more instruction.<p>So, with all this FUN, nobody laughing at you, nothing to hurt your car, it is LEGAL, and FREE instruction, . . . . . . . what is preventing the rest of you to come out? And just what do you think will happen if your first time is on a real race track when you go to a Quattro Club event? So think about it - get some FREE instruction at lower speeds before you attempt a real race track with walls and trees around it.
