David Marcus has is the first Solo Nationals champion to win in an all electric car.
David shares his autocross tips and thoughts on this podcast.
He won both the BStreet Solo Nationals and Pro Solo class in a Tesla Model 3.
He also won the STX SCCA Solo National championship in STX.
He started his auto addiction with a Richard Petty Driving Day. Then he tried autocross and track days before dedicateing himself to autocross.
He explains how codriving with Darrin DiSimo helped to learn to get on the gas sooner by looking at Data and Video.
Fingers crossed that we will be driving his nationals course in 2020.
He talks about how he sees slaloms as muscle memory, exits are the most important thing to setup for, you can't fix going to fast into an element and position is more important than speed.
He also talks about the metal game of calming down.
A point I've not thought of much is how he looks for places where he under drove.
He mentions Vivek Goel's course being helpful as well as Andy Hollis's top ten tips to autocross.
He also watched videos of everyone who beat him.
And his question to the audience is what is your favorite element?
Thanks for the emails and comments!
