  4. I'm thinking about going this year. if there are any other WSCC members that want to go, lets see what we can do. The Standing Start single lap is similar to the old Top Gear feature "star in a reasonably priced car" and with Auto X and Drag Racing all on the schedule it makes for a busy weekend of tire annihilation! I haven't been to Brainerd in a long time, this sounds like fun for sure http://www.cwscc.com/MAPerformance.php Classing Info: http://www.cwscc.com/map_pdfs/PG_Classing.pdf What is TTS? Triple Track Showdown. This is a combination of Drag Racing, Parking lot AutoX, and Road Course. Prove that you have the skill and car that can do it all. A combined score from all three events will determine the winner of each class. Drag- Saturday morning Spend Saturday morning trying to get your best quarter mile time. Each driver will be given 3 drag passes. AutoX- Saturday evening AutoX is a timed competition where the driver will navigate through a course designated by traffic cones. Each driver will race against the clock (not wheel-to-wheel) for the quickest time. This requires quick thinking and fast action driving. Essentially it's a miniature road course outlined with cones. TTS AutoX will start on Saturday at 3pm. Road Course- (Sunday) This is the real deal, high speed, road course driving. Similar to the Auto-X, this is a race against the clock (not wheel-to-wheel). You will be given one 20minute practice session to learn the track along with two attempts at the Standing-Start Shootout. There will be a mandatory drivers meeting before you are allowed on track. All TTS Entries are automatically entered into the MN Time Attack. Your best standing start lap time will go towards the TTS competition as well as the Time Attack. Matt
  5. Hey everyone. I think it's an understatement to say we have received a lot of feedback on our supplimentrary rules both positive and negative. We cannot ignore tho that the majority are against the supplimentrary rules. With the feedback given we have decided to scrap the 2019 supplimentrary rulebook written and continue running under the asn national scoring classing system. While we received many different views and had very healthy discussions about the pros and cons of both classing types it would be irresponsible of Brooke and I to force in a rulebook that is not in favor of the majority of time attack. However the last thing wewant to do is stop the discussion. Time attack is the fastest growing form of motorsports and is still very young compared to all the other disciplines. With the brand new formation of the North American Time Attack council reprisenting all levels of timeattack its will be very interesting what the future holds. We are all participating in a very import period for time attack and should all be proud of being a part of such a new and amazing discipline. Thank you all for your feedback and discussion. See you all in 2019. Ian and Brooke

  7. Joker lap? Nice! I might be able to make a Monday league. It's been a while since I've done a league night. Anyone else? EDIT: I can't read. I can't make Tuesday or Thursday. :/
  8. My 15 seconds of fame. Actually it was comforting to have the media attendance at the track. It shows that we draw enough attention for them to show. We rock. H.
  9. Randy Lewis sent me his video of Winnipeg Beach ice racing and his Winnipeg stay. <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iXmq7JhoqQ> His written report will be out later. H.

    IMSA - Behind the Pit Wall

    The crash ended up damaging the firewall and sheared lower a-arm mounting points. It was decided to write-off the tub because it would be easier to get a new tub than try and repair the damage and end up with a chassis that isn't square anymore. The tear-down and total re-build took almost 2 weeks altogether but the team got it back together in time for use to head down to Sebring this week for a test. An interesting point to note is that the tub is a production street-car chassis that has had its fenders cut out and a roll cage installed. The triangulated node in the front wheel well area is the upper mounting point for the front damper assemblies. I do not know the selection process for how chassis get selected to become racecars but I am fairly certain that it is not like the Ferrari FXX's which are chosen because of defects that make them unsafe for street use. During tear-down we were able to get a good look at the pedal box and the brake pedal/master cylinder assembly. It is becoming more common now for the driver seat to be in a fixed position and the driver controls adjustable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent longitudinal weight distribution being thrown off by different drivers. It also makes it easier to design the safety cell around the driver if every one will be in the exact same position relative to padding and the roll cage. Of course Porsche has to be different from everyone else and uses brake master cylinders that pressurize under extension and not compression.

    IMSA - Behind the Pit Wall

    For those of you who did not know, our race was cut short due to an accident during the re-start after the first red flag period. A car had spun out in front of us at the start/finish line and our driver had nowhere to go, thankfully he was able to brake and slow significantly before impact. Footage of the impact can be seen at 4:17 in the video below:

    2019 Classing Changes

    If anyone hasn't seen this, NASA has a link to an online calculator which makes confirming class pretty simple. https://form.jotform.com/drivenasa/st-tt-car-classification-form
  17. Track is located on the lake, next to the boardwalk. Directions from Hwy 9, north to Park Ave (second street past railroad tracks) turn right , go to Prospect Street left then right into marina onto ice See map below: Untitled 1.pdf
  18. I can help Saturday or Sunday. Just let me know when you need me.
  19. Anybody interested in having a kart league every week? We have made a lot of changes to the karts including new frames that no longer have understeer and the track has been acid etched in places to increase grip and we have increased the power over the last couple of months and the karts now lap around a second quicker. Plus we have a test driver who comes in every Monday and Wednesday and drives all the karts and gets them to the same lap time (not the 3/10 second variance we used to allow). And we have a results screen on the track side so you can see what your lap times and position are while out on the track. And not only that, leagues now have a Joker lap. During the feature race (the one for position) each driver must take the Joker lap once and they can take it on any lap, but they must take it once. The Joker lap adds approximately 1.3 seconds to a lap and there is a lot of strategy that goes into when to take the Joker lap. Attached is a video of a recent Staff race with the Joker lap, if you want to see how it works. Every Tuesday or Thursday is available, post below what day(s) work for you. Cost would be $35 each event, there would be drop events (so you don't need to show up every week to win), we will track the points and there will be prizes. We are working on getting a pretty cool prize, I'll tell you when I can confirm it.
  20. Yes after 5pm. Please note that priority will be given to the instructors. There will also be an opportunity for workers to get laps on the Saturday after the school has concluded for the day.
