I have to include one more photo of the 1991 Caterham Super Seven. Driven by another “GrandDaddy” of autoslalom, Alan Rae was another driver that I truly enjoyed watching as he wheeled his car around the course.
Mark Uhlman took his 2011 BMW 128i to a first in Street Touring X with a time of 221.036 and literally right behind him was his co-driver, Andre Marziali, running the same car to a time of 221.731 seconds. That's close competition!
I have to include Jim McLaughlan whose 3rd place finish in C Street Prepared doesn't do justice to his raw time of 208.213 seconds – which made him the 8th fastest raw time of the weekend. That is simply fantastic.
The VCMC team includes (from left): Evelyn Lee, Jordan Valgardson, Peter Ferrucci, David Cross, Matt Rizzo, and (missing from the photo) Alyson Pickett.
Of course, after all of the fun and games comes the really exhausting part. Cleaning up the course. A huge thanks to VCMC for hosting such a fantastic event. We're already looking forward to the next one!
The 2017 ASN Canada FIA Canadian Autoslalom Championship presented by Toyo Tires is over. If you were not here, then you missed out on a fantastic event. Stay tuned because early in 2018 the location for next year's championship will be announced. If you are an autoslalom enthusiast, you will want to mark it on your calendar as soon as it is posted.
There was a huge crew of corner workers voluntarily taking turns between driving to ensure the safety of everyone on the course. And then there were volunteers helping out who were not doing any driving. They were there for the love of the sport (and maybe because of their love for their parents!). A huge thanks to Tessa who was my spotter for the weekend. She ensured my safety by watching the cars on course while I was watching my camera viewfinder. Tessa also captured a few photos – in this article at least one that is labelled with my name may actually be one that she captured!
