We had a very interesting conversation with Jasmyn Johnson who participates and coordinates off-road and soft-road adventures with her Subaru Crosstrek. We learn what those terms (and several others) actually mean, and what the rules are when planning these runs. She gives us some how-tos and advice on how to get started. We also talk about the common elements of all car-related activities. Spoiler alert – good people and food!
Exploring state parks sounds like a lot of fun. We hope you enjoy learning about it as much as we did!
Kathy, Jess, and Audra met with a special guest, Lana Tsurikova, who told us the fabulous story of her driving and riding path starting from a small girl to a national Autocross Champion. Now she is looking to conquer the GS Trophy|BMW Motorrad competition in a motorcycle.
We talked about:
The value of taking instructors.
If you are contemplating going to Nationals, do not wait until you think you have a chance to win. Just do it for the experience.
Value of autocross in daily life and in training for the motorcycle competition.
The intensive training needed to prepare for the GS Trophy (off-road challenges on a 550-pound bike).
Women in motorsports.
How Lana wants to help educate and empower the younger generations.
