project: BDR is a motorsports team and group of friends in the Washington, DC area. Our primary focus is autocross, but many of us also do track events. And all of us love cars.

Mid-July BDR rollup

BDR was represented at three more July events.

July 8th: Autocrossers Inc Autox @ Ripken

On July 8th, Mei and Slava attended the Autocrossers, Inc. event at Ripken Stadium. Mei’s car was still down for the count, so she co-drove in Slava’s MR2. Er, rather, their Celica and their MR2. Tony Powell won STS2, with Slava finishing 2nd, and Mei finishing 3rd.

This was a Crossroads points event, so an additional 19 points were scored for team BDR.

July 8th-9th: NASA Hyperfest @ Summit Point

Dan, Paul and John attended NASA’s “import scene y0″ event / HPDE at Summit Point. Also in attendance were BDR technical consultant Alex and BDR honorary balla Mark in his Ronald McDonald Porsche. Dan enjoyed his newfound b00st and instructed two students without dying. Paul continued his climb up the HPDE ladder, getting more experience in HPDE3. John signed up for HPDE1, but his instructor asked after 10 minutes why he hadn’t signed up for HPDE2. Ah well, next time.

No metal was bent, and John was bumped into HPDE2, so all in all it was a successful weekend.

July 15th: CDC Autox @ Manassas

John took out BDR technical consultant for his first two runs and, naturally, botched them badly. As Alex proved at Hyperfest, he has a deleterious effect on the ability of other BDR drivers to drive well. Some sort of telekenetic power, perhaps. With Alex out of the car, John was able to get his times out of the realm of suckitude and into the realm of decency. John, not well versed in the art of sandbagging (since it requires you, at some point, to drive fast) continued to destroy his CDC index, dropping it down to 1.04 from its high of 1.06.
