Delta Region, SCCA - Zoom-Zoom II Autocross
November 7, 2004

By: Patty Poupart

    What do a beautiful fall day, a big open parking lot, and a course designer with a lot of cones at his disposal have in common? That would be Zoom-Zoom II! Event Chairperson, Benson Young, wove all the threads together on November 7, 2004, to make a great event for Delta Region’s first fall outing at Zephyr Stadium on Airline Drive, in Metairie, LA. His course design was slightly different than one he designed for that venue earlier this year making the average timed run between 45 – 50 seconds. The 91 drivers, 21 of them running in novice classes, initially found the course a bit of a challenge. With 4 runs each, everyone “got it” by the end of the day.

    Patty Poupart ran this event in her 2004 Z06 Corvette which she campaigned in the SS class.  There was only one other competitor in this class and the lead was passed back and forth a couple of times.  At the end of the day, Patty finished in 2nd place, only .151 seconds behind Ron Randolph in a 2002 Z06 Corvette.  This was the first autocross outing for the Z06 and it was awesome!  The responsiveness and handling of the Corvette seem to be magnified in the Z06.  For Patty, autocrossing a Corvette on street tires is VERY different than being in a B-Prepared Corvette on slicks!

    We’ll be back at Zephyr Stadium on December 5th with a top notch course being designed by Robbie Poupart that promises to be a lot of fun no matter what you drive.
