As is common it seems, San Diego decided to dump some rain and have some bad weather after a very dry winter. Storms moved in on Friday night and dumped. Saturday morning was started in the wet, but drying course. The more cars ran, the dryer the course became.
There were more scattered showers through the day. The temps kept going between jacket and no jacket weather, eventually getting pretty cold at the end of the day, about 56 degrees. There was also some wind (a lot for San Diego, nothing compared to Lubbock or Wendover).
In retrospect, those who could keep their tires warmer might have had an advantage.
Course was about 1.3 miles? Not sure, I didn't set the odometer. I will upload video of the runs to [url="http://www.conecam.com/"]http://www.conecam.com/[/URL] as soon as I can. I took video with in-car cams (pointed forward, one pointed at the driver) and "a-team" cam with the camera focused on the front tire. And with hood cam. We may not have driven very well, but we were wired!
The course flowed (better on Sunday!). For many cars, the course was 3rd gear in a few places, but reasonable speeds overall. Class winner (ES) Paul Brown reported shifting into 3rd 5 times on Sunday's best run.
Elevation and the effects of off-camber turns also had their impact, specially to people not used to them.
