Thank goodness this statement is completely untrue. Not that chasing cones
is social hour or anything, but it's a great way to get to know some of the
racers whom I would not normally meet.
IMHO, I don't think I'm that weird because I don't mind devoting an entire
day to an autocross. Having been involved in other competitive, organized
events, I can say the SOLO 2 folks are by far the friendliest. Why?
Because unfriendly people tend to be the same ones who "soak" off a good
thing without ever giving any time to it. SOLO2 is structured to keep these
types uninterested, and I think that's a very good thing.
(ps: DG, thanx for the compelling topics! Brainstorming is always good.)
