Thank you for joining us.

The 19th Annual Texas Autocross Weekend was another huge success.

With 25 cars, 10 teams, 100 participants and over 200 spectators, the event proved to be an attractive competition for teams from all across the country. UTA Racing continued to prove its dominance by setting the fastest times across all three courses.

We owe a huge appreciation to our sponsors for helping us to make this a no-cost event for all the participants. Thanks to Mouser Electronics all the participants received free Texas BBQ and shirts. Mouser Electronics was also on-site and provided everyone with free snacks, water, soft drinks, and Mouser swag. Like last year, Sawyer Composite was a contributing sponsor, while ANSYS joined as a new sponsor for this event. On Friday we had a Welcome Social sponsored by Taylor Race Engineering, who also had an on-site presence with the trailer that many FSAE teams are familiar with. On Saturday GoEngineer gave a presentation about the new features of SolidWorks and provided everyone with free pizza and soft drinks. Mike Andrews provided water through the event, and Matt Travis sponsored the portable restrooms as he has done every year.

We would like to thank the Texas Region SCCA and its volunteers for making this a professional and safe event for all the participants.

UTA Racing demonstrated a show of force with 11 running cars, all using LIQUI MOLY oil. LIQUI MOLY was also on-site to show their support and showcase their newest products. We also had a few returning UTA Racing cars, including F00, our first winged car and champion of the inaugural 2000 Formula SAE Australasia.

We thoroughly enjoyed hosting another successful Texas Autocross Weekend and being able to compete with our FSAE friends.

We thank all the teams that participated, and hope that you enjoyed the event as much as we did. Feel free to leave us a comment if you have suggestions for next year or just to say hi. See you next year!
