Well, its almost that time for the 49th Annual Bay Bottom Crawl in Key West. People go from all over the state to experience this autox... The course has been set up the exact same every year for 49 years now. This will be my 3rd year. Its a whole weekend with practice runs on saturday, a banquet saturday night, and then recorded times on sunday. By far some of the most fun weekends of my life. I encourage anyone who likes autoX or road racing to give it a shot... 100+mph is expected.

I have run it with Rey, Sunkist the last two years

here is the link for all the info and course pics.

Damn, looks bumpy and long.

Would you say this track is too much for a first timer?

Yeah, it's not recommeded for 1st timers, but I'm sure you could register. Just take it easy on Saturday < practice > & sorta push harder on Sunday.

Fixed.

Long, yes.
Bumpy, only in a few spots does it get a little bad. There's a dip somewhere around halfway, and then pavement is cracked up in the turn after that. Other than that, it's not too bad.

As mentioned, just take it easy on your first couple practice laps and get used to the track. I think they give all 1st timers a run-through once or twice before the practice laps begin.

Car = not moving right now.

By then, I'll probably be too busy with the academy to even get out to take pics let alone compete again :(

Maybe next year when I get my Si running.
Civic would be a lot cheaper/easier to fix vs. paying $$$ if anything happened to the S
