  1. All good questions Spencer. We’re still in the planning phase and no hard and fast decisions have been made. Keep an eye out on the forums and follow us on social media for an official announcement in the next week or two.
  2. Good news Spencer. As of June 21st, the Province has lifted restrictions on visitors from Northwestern Ontario. That means you'll be able to join us for our July weekend without any issues. Hope to see you there!
  3. That really sucks Roland. Happened to me while my car was at the dealership getting work done. They called me at 6:30 am when the first guy got into the office and noticed my car in the lot sitting on blocks. Asked me if I had come by and taken my rims. I asked him, why would I do that? Thought he was joking at first, but no.... I eventually found my rims on another car running around the city, but I couldn't prove they were mine without serial numbers. Good luck with everything, but without something definitive, you'll never be able to prove the rims are yours even if you do track them down.
  4. As indicated in the COVID-19 Announcement that was posted to the forums, all WSCC Executive, Board and Club meetings are being held entirely by video and teleconference - until further notice. Members can attend this week's meeting by logging in on the ZOOM Meeting application from their computer, tablet or smart phone, or by calling in to the meeting on their telephone. There is no charge for members downloading and using the application to attend the meeting. Instructions on downloading the application can be found here: https://zoom.us/ An email invitation will be sent out to all active Club members, but I have also provided the meeting information below, including the meeting ID and Password (in bold) and the link to access the meeting if you're using ZOOM. If you're going to call in on your phone, please note that long distance charges may apply (unless you have a long distance plan). If you have a smart phone, I strongly recommend that you download and use the ZOOM app, as there are no charges whatsoever.

  5. I know what you meant Spencer. I appreciate that not everyone is following Provincial recommendations and it’s frustrating to be excluded from an event - especially the first event at GMP for the season. I’m going to simply ask that you bear with us. We are doing the best we can to be responsible, to honour our commitments to stakeholders, and operate within the parameters set by facility management, Provincial authorities, and our own best judgement. We understand it’s not possible to please everyone in the circumstances, and that some people will be more directly impacted than others. Unfortunately, that is largely unavoidable. We only hope that you trust we are managing the situation as best we can and hope that once the situation improves and some (if not all) of the restrictions are lifted, that you will join us for future events at GMP. if you have any specific concerns you would like to share, feel free to contact me directly at president@wscc.mb.ca.

  8. These are unprecedented times we are living through. In light of the developing situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, and the decision by the Province to declare a state of emergency, the WSCC Executive took the decision to cancel the upcoming High Performance Driving Education and Race Licencing School (HPDE), scheduled for May 2nd and 3rd at Gimli Motorsport Park. We knew that this decision will come as a disappointment to the students who were already registered for the event, but our priority must always be the wellbeing of our members, our students and our volunteers, and as a result, we felt it necessary to make this difficult decision. A notice was sent out to the students on March 26th advising them of the cancellation of the HPDE and that everyone would be receiving a full refund. We are currently working to reschedule the event for later this summer, and further details will be provided as they become available. At the same time, we have also made the decision to postpone the start of our Road Race, Time Attack, and Autoslolam seasons. Although it is uncertain how long the Province will maintain the current state of emergency, WSCC is committed to ensuring that once it becomes possible, all of these events will proceed in a safe, secure and socially responsible fashion. Additional updates will be provided to Club members here on the WSCC forums. Effective immediately, all WSCC Executive, Board and Club meetings will now be conducted exclusively via video and teleconferencing on the ZOOM conferencing platform, in order to facilitate social distancing and to observe the limitations on public meetings required under the Provincial state of emergency. Members can attend meetings via video-conferencing by downloading the ZOOM app onto their computers, tablets or smart phones, and share documents, video and other rich-media via the built-in features of the program. Alternatively, members can simply dial in to the meeting on their phone. We have experimented with the program extensively and both methods have proven to work seamlessly. More information and specific detailed instructions for attending each meeting will be posted to the WSCC forums. Follow this link for instructions on downloading the application: https://zoom.us/ Despite this new shared reality, or perhaps because of it, we are also exploring new and innovative ways to remain connected and continue the spirit of competition. Approximately two weeks ago Club members should have received an invitation to complete a survey assessing interest in the WSCC establishing and hosting an eSport sim-racing league. One of the centrepieces of the proposed series is the ability to race head to head with other members on a virtual version of our very own Gimli Motorsport Park. We are very much looking forward to the results of that survey and reporting back to you on our Club’s possible entry into this exciting new area of our sport. Let me close by thanking all of you for your patience and understanding while we work through these difficult circumstances. Be safe and stay well.
  9. Kk - fair enough!! There is also the issue of client hardware that is required. rFactor if I understand correctly only runs on PC, whereas Assetto Corsa also runs on game consoles, am I correct? If so, that may also be a big factor in how many people may ultimately be able to participate. Not many people are likely going to run out and buy a PC just so they can go sim-racing at GMP...
  10. It wasn't meant as a criticism Ian!! There are definite advantages to both platforms. As I understand it, using the rFactor platform may require operating our own server - which we don't have and likely won't be buying. Assetto Corsa, if it can be run simply by networking people's existing PC(s) or game consoles, will be a much better option, even if it doesn't offer the same degree of realism. I didn't mean to put my thumb on the scale, I just want to make sure people get the chance to consider all their options before we make a decision a) whether to proceed and b) if we do, which platform we'd select.
  11. Thanks Aaron. Much appreciated!! Someone else made a side by side comparison of the rFactor1 GMP track model next to the Assetto Corsa GMP track model, and I think the comparison is striking. In my opinion, one is like actually racing at GMP, and the other seems like an arcade version of racing at GMP. http://www.youtubemultiplier.com/5e874a85b0e7b-rfactor-assetto-corsa-side-by-side-comparison.php Before a decision is made on which platform people prefer, they should definitely watch this video if they haven't had a chance to actually drive both.
  12. Ian, can you do a screen capture with a test run of GMP on Assetto Corsa? JS has done a screen capture with rFactor that I'm going to try and load so people can see the two different systems and compare the ability to run at GMP on both systems.
  13. Please be advised that our regularly scheduled Club Meeting on March 19th has been cancelled. Budget approval for the upcoming Road Race, Autoslalom and HPDE seasons will be tabled at our regularly scheduled Club Meeting on April 16th. Further details to follow on the forum and to be distributed to Directors and Club members via email.
  14. Please note that our scheduled Club meeting for March 19th has been cancelled. We expect to hold our April meeting as scheduled via teleconference. Further details will be provided within the next few weeks.
  15. Please be advised that in light of growing concerns regarding the impending COVID-19 pandemic, in-person Club Meetings for the WSCC are suspended indefinitely and will instead be conducted exclusively by teleconference. Details and instructions for calling-in to our regularly scheduled club meeting on March 19th will be published in the forum and distributed by email to all Board members and current Club members in the next 48 hours. I thank all of you for your patience, understanding and cooperation while we navigate the uncertainty created by this developing situation. Further updates will be posted to the forums as matters progress.
