This autocross was at the Miami Homestead Speedway on November 30th, 2008. It was my first time driving at an autocross event, but my time wasn't that much either, however my brother did get second place in the F Stock category, only behind a 2008 Ford Shelby GT. Here are the results for that event:

A video will be coming in the next couple of days.

The car felt great, the only problem is the ESC cutting power from the engine, even when it is off. After some sharp turns, you could not accelerate, and basically there was a fast part of the track that the car consistently took it slower because of the lack of acceleration, there were also places where the car decided to go from 2nd to 1st gear (in manual mode) which was kind of confusing. Other than that the handling was spectacular, it was a very luxurious racing experience, the car did gather a crowd at the end of the event to look at the engine, everyone was impressed.

Very, very cool!!!
Good job, especially to your brother. It looks like it was wet out and I wonder if you would have done better with ESC on at all times?
