    I've got to give Thank You's to many people this 2019 HPDE weekend. Starting with track workers keeping us safe, the instructors giving us invaluable knowledge and advice, for me especially my instructor Damon Hill, and the organizing group of people putting in countless hours preparing and organizing the event: Thank-You! My car ended up breaking (right-rear shock broke, not damaging anything else or causing havoc) mid-morning Sunday before the speed limit was lifted. So I feared that I wouldn't be able to finish the course, wasting my time and money. So my biggest THANK YOU is to George Abrahams from Saskatchewan for lending me his BMW M3 so I could successfully finish the course! That was way beyond the call of duty, Thank-you so much! And last but not least, Thank You to Randy Morash, he had his tow truck there and got my car home on Sunday night! I consider by self to be a very fortunate person to have experienced the generosity of so many people of the WSCC! Thank You All! peace, David

    That was a great day at the track! I can't thank everyone enough for all the help to keep the event running smooth. It was great to see a bunch of new faces and old friends. Here's my 2nd run, my best today: My 4th run was on track to be better, but, um... yeah... I got too greedy and ran out of talent:

    I think that whenever you run a car that you need to constantly mess with to get the most out of them, it seriously hurts your driving abilities. There is only so much input your brain can take of half your brain is filled with thoughts like "it's understeering, should I soften front sway bar or raise rear roll center?" then there is precious little left over for things like "gotta backside this cone so I can set up for the sweeper that follows". Once we get our cars in that magical zone where they just work no matter what the temp or track conditions, we can start working on being great drivers again. My driving has really suffered since I started building my car and today is the first time in years that I could stop thinking about the car and concentrate on driving the course.

    Tried running highpass filters using free audio software but it removes too much of the cars various sounds as well. Looks like it needs a foam box to sit inside. Here are a few of the ones filmed last weekend: https://youtu.be/hLsep8Hv4bk https://youtu.be/uE3OZamZ6CE https://youtu.be/PtyYtQj9mS4 https://youtu.be/tKfXStrPHoA

    What a fun day! It was great to see everybody out for the event after a long winter. Also nice of Joe (and Abigail) to come out to say "Hi" even though he was unable to race. I keep hoping to wake up FAST someday...but I'm starting to believe that's not how it works

    Well there is a fair amount of video clips recorded but they are all severely affected by the wind noise. So much so that it's hard to hear the cars. It was a bit breezy through the weekend though. lol I'll work on these and see if I can find a way to filter it out somewhat. If that fails I'll have to use other background audio tracks just to cover it up. Stayed tuned. This will take awhile.

    Needed to set up 1965 Daytona Shelby Coupe with IRS. Not an easy job and not cheap but very pleased with work at Speedfactor from Jaimie and Danny. Recommend them for any suspension you are trying to set up.

    WSCC HILL CLIMB AT MORDEN, MANITOBA August 1960 Al Ducharme & his 1959 Chev 2dr. which had the 348 cu.in engine with triple carbs & 4spd transmission. Al was a member of the WSCC as I recall, so he may have been instrumental in having the Roadster Club join in a WSCC event.

    That's great @Weebly , thanks for Posting. I'm looking at the illustration of a corner and driving line - all from the Birds Eye perspective. This brings up an interesting point; Driver perspective. I used to think i am just allergic to cones, when i went to an Auto-x (MAXA days, wpg stadium or St. Vital center) i would get blinded easily by orange - and no matter how many course walks i did, it was always a battle for me to see the line through the cones. All i saw was cones and hoped i'd get a late run so there was some rubber on the ground before my first run. my car was low to the ground and that changed my perspective - it didn't look that daunting when i was walking around but in the car was a different deal. When i took my son to a hockey clinic, they spoke about the "Pucks Perspective", and as a shooter you may see an opening in the net, but at 5ft over and 6ft down, the puck sees a totally different opportunity. I kinda use this analogy with cones and the track walk. i think if i try AX this year, i will be taking my track walk with my view from the drivers seat on my mind as i look at the track.

    Thanks to all that came out and helped get the trailers sorted and inventoried. Great start to what should be a great year of racing! @BigKahuna Thanks for the offer. Are you with Ultra Tech fire and Safety? Asking because they are a club sponsor I hear and we would like to provide them first rights to supply as a thanks for the sponsorship. If so great! See you soon. If not, you are second in line once I find out about Ultra Tech. Just being fair to sponsors.

    I'd be down for a drive like always. We have a great time every year. Hopefully we get a few more cars out this time. The past few years it's been just a few of us, which is fine of course, but the more the merrier.
