What else can we do when it’s 96F out there? Autocross of course. Hot laps for real, and the heat will just keep your tires warm for more grip.

Our photographer Luis once again leads us to the hot course with his camera. Please visit Luis’s Gallery at the end of this article for more of your car’s full-size images. Let’s get it started!

Your winner director, Michael Oest aka Mike Fast. Congratulations Mike for another win at autocross, he did a 35.473s. The red Miata’s transponder tells us that you also went on track the same day. What a champion!

Safety is important. Looks like the Mazda got not only the Sparco Belt 6 Points Harness Set, also a roll bar. See you on track more often.

What can we do without her?! Thank you so much Karen Guthorn! You always make our registration smooth and fast.

Sometimes you drive, sometimes you talk. Some people say: Autocross is about 20% driving and 80% social. Sounds legit to me –unless it’s SCCA autocross then it’s 5% driving and 95% chasing the cones ;).

Adam Levine look-alike showed up with his Tesla… They look like a fast couple!

Colin Gressler knows exactly how to be the course worker’s favorite. Thank you for making the numbers so easy to read. In case some drivers do not know, you need to have at least 8” tall numbers on your car, BOTH sides.
