Racing For Knowledge, AKA Fun!
By Ryan Rink

The 2018 Autocross season has been a very special season for me. I am back in school this year and my racing budget has suffered immensely! The biggest change to my racing experience for 2018 was having to run on whatever old junky street and snow tires I had laying around because I couldn't afford a new-to-me set of slicks. Not that I have a delusional hope that a set of Spec Miata take off slicks would allow me to be competitive in my class, (here's looking at you, Team SSM Corvette), but I was definitely no longer competitive with my friends either. 

So, what was I to do? Race on junk tires and hope that I could still be competitive? That’s literally the definition of insanity. Instead I decided to spend the whole season experimenting with different driving styles and different lines, and it has been very educational!  Some of the regular autocross members may have noticed a new sideways exuberance to my laps over the last couple of months. That was all a part of trying new things and seeing how the car behaved in different situations. I must say this season has been a very slow, very sideways, and very fun season for me! I'm hoping the skills I learned this season will help translate into faster and more competitive lap times in the future.

Lots of people have acknowledged the ancient Blizzak snow tires I have been trying desperately to burn through, saying things like “you would be so much faster on ‘real tires!” Sometimes you just have to work with what you’ve got, and I can say that graduation and an improved racing budget simply cannot come quick enough!
