    Have any of you guys Autocrossed your 997(s)???

    Hey, i was wondering if any of you guys have done any autox'ing with your 997 or 997s... i just been getting into SCCA SoloII autoxing with my STi and my dad may do a few in his 997s, i was wondering what kind of times you guys were getting and how you thought it felt.

    The 997 is Super Stock so its got to compete with the elise and corvettes so the competition is close !

    thanks!

    I used to 'cross my Boxter. I plan on doing one with PCA in San Francisco on Sept. 17. PCA has an autocross school that I recommend, not so much to learn but to get a lot of seat time.

    Yes I have, five times this year, and it is a whole new car as compaired to my '02

    sounds fun...wish there was a track near here...

    Re: Have any of you guys Autocrossed your 997(s)???

    track? nah, you just gotta find the local PCA club and where they autox AND/OR find the local region of the SCCA for you.

    there should be some close local organizations that you could autox with

    PCA San Diego region...we use the parking field at Qualcom Stadium that is huge and not flat. Our tracks are typically 1 mile in length and have uphill, downhill with on and off camber...not unusual to run out of second gear and have to go to third for a bit...

    Great fun, it's a mini track

    PCA Region 7 in San Francisco Bay Area has several venues, mostly large parking lots. The next one I am doing on September 17th is at the 49er's statium (I think the name just went back to Candlestick Park??).
    Lap time vary with the course, 30 sec. to about 1 min. with speeds no faster than about 65-70 MPH. Fun and misleadingly inexpensive entrance fee at $25, but cost a lot more in tire wear.

    Re: Have any of you guys Autocrossed your 997(s)???

    Too bad the -20mm sport suspension with Ltd Slip Diff is a Euro-only option (free). I bet that would help alot with AutoX...

    Re: Have any of you guys Autocrossed your 997(s)???

    yeah that suspension would be nice i bet especially that lsd

    It seems every interest I currently have, San Diego is the most active region. From Porsches to triathlons to RC electric airplanes. Most be all the sunshine you guys have.
