Does anyone run Time Attack / Solo Sprint with an automatic transmission?

I've seen a few people over the years and wondering if it still happens.

Being without a racecar or track car for the past couple of years - I really miss the g-force and am considering an event or two this year - just for the heck of it - with a daily driver elantra - maybe throw some track tires and brake pads onto it.

Hi Nick,

Im sure the Four Star Motorsports Kia was a automatic, so you won't be the only one. I have the OTA championship trophy at the moment and it was a time warp to see the Actionfront logo.

Come back racing!!

Nick,

Good to see you back! I have run my car with the Automatic for the last couple of years. It works very well.
I have run in in full auto and also used the paddles to shift. In full auto it seems fater. You will need to learn some of the suttle ways that these things can be manipulated to give you the gear you need.

What are you thinking of bringing back to the track?
