Episode 49 – Swig – Part Deux

Kathy, Jess and Audra bring Xander Swig back to run through his list of 57 cars he has autocrossed. We may have digressed a bit from the main topic with off-topic discussions including mid vs. front vs. rear engine cars, blinker usage, speed wipers, speed horn and logos among other things. And we were excited, and amused, to find out that there is one car that Kathy knows. 

As you listen, please keep in mind that we are not kidding about the drinks, we may have had some.

Episode 37 – Holding hands while driving fast

Audra, Jess and special Co-Host Mark Joyce sit down with autocrossing couple Doug DeFonzo and Laura Rosen. What you will miss on this episode is the delicious homemade maple ice cream that Laura brought. What you will get is a great conversation about how this couple started autocross, how they help and encourage each other and a whole bunch of other random conversations with good stuff about improving at Autocross and how supportive motorsports people really are.

Some bits from our discussion:

  • You don’t make it up all in one piece of the course
  • Seat time really is the key to getting faster
  • It’s hard to drive fast when you are holding hands and looking into each other’s eyes
  • Just because you are in first place, doesn’t mean that you can’t complain
