The Autocross Corner
The May 21st Autocross was held at the AMC Cantera Theaters in Warrenville on a beautiful, sunny but cool morning. Joining our MG’s in the sport were Two Austin Healys, one Triumph and a 2000 Ford Focus driven by a Triumph owner. (George, you shoulda brought the Miata!) Every car got in four timed runs. Class winners and their times are:
Bill Mennell, metallic green TD 45.40 1st
MGAs & Midgets
Jack McIlvain, red Midget 40.10 1st*
Parker Whiteway 42.29 2nd
Paul Urquhart, red MGA 44.05 3rd
Mike Hirsch, green Midget 46.87 4th
Dave Mullis, white roadster 43.70 1st
Jake Snyder, red GT 47.65 2nd
Ann Snyder, red GT 48.66 3rd
Maynard Hirsch, black roadster 42.05! 1st
Reinout Vogt, white MGC, red wheels 42.08 1st
* Denotes fastest time of day! Nice driving, Jack!
That’s all that counts, but wait, there’s more!
Bill Cantrell, 59 Sprite 43.20
Bruce Carlos, red AH 3000 44.86
Joe Kaplan, Triumph Spitfire 45.07
Steve Benford, Ford Focus 50.54
When all the official timed runs were completed we ran the course in reverse direction for a little excitement. Parker Whiteway amazed us all with a 43.12! Most of us are not that adaptable.
By the way, in sympathy for Barney’s absence, Don and Scott declined to run. See you next time.
Hey Don. That wasn't at all necessary. I was at Champaign County Fairgrounds again kicking asphault at an SCCA autocross and taking the index trophy with 50 drivers. YEE-HAA!
