The Rally Corner

We are now into the 2000 driving season. Already we have had The driving school, The spring rally, and the spring autocross. There are many more coming up like the Rally 2000 in Mchenry County and the Utica autocross this month.

The driving school was a blast. We all improved our times and found the racer inside of all of us. I believe I'm a safer driver knowing what I can do and what the car can do to avoid trouble on the road. Many thanks to our instructors Scott Anderson, Barney Gaylord, and Reinout Vogt.

Many Questions were answered for me at the driving school. Can an MGA top 100mph, Yes (OK this was on the way there and I was pacing Barney reading 103mph; this type of driving is dangerous I don't condone it). Also a BGT with overdrive will pull well from here on up. My limits are much lower than the cars limits, therefore I need more seat time.

See you at the next event. Remember rubber side down!

Safety fast,

Mike Olsen
