  1. One full day of open lapping on the road course and a chance to challenge an Autoslalom course all in the same day at the same venue. For only $100 participants are free to come and go between courses as they please all day. Intructors will be present on both sides of the track. This a great opportunity to try something new!

    I suggest to call a meeting and hold an open discussion on this so everyone can have input. There are many who haven’t expressed their concerns. We’ve had tremendous growth in participation and need to make sure we don’t scare anyone away.

    2019 Classing Changes

    It’s ST all the way. There is no option for PT. The only other option is Club Class and we’ve been down that road before. I really hope this is the last time we have to reclass the field in the near future.
  7. Tammy insisted I post this for sale. I have very little information. $5000 No drivetrain PM @Mat or Contact Gary Tholl for more info.
  8. It would be a much simplified version of that layout but I agree it’s probably not realistic.

    2019 Ice Racing Registration Links

  10. Schteeve had mentioned a modified version of the attached layout.
  11. Like this? I guess my immediate concern would be potential crossover without massive banks. A few of the discussed advantages to an oval are having a super wide track which allows alternate lines, passing through the corners and confidence when driving blind through a blizzard. It’s difficult to have a consensus with 10-15 drivers in the mix. The opinion of the Ice Race Management team is as long as the majority of the drivers are in agreement we will accommodate as best we can.

    Lapping all day Saturday!!
  13. All returning 2018 Ice Racer numbers will be reserved for 2019. Please indicate your current or requested number below.
  14. 80 had a great line today. His bash bar is completely ludicrous however...
  15. This is an urgent call for corner workers for Saturday January 19th in Beausejour. 10:00am - 4:00pm Bring warm clothes, especially boots. Since you are protected by a barrier you can stand much closer to the action than we do in the summer. This makes for a great view of the racing. Please Contact @ScottMcD for more info.
  16. #55 has a Quaife LSD.
  17. I think people are seeing the Triangle and not the video playing on the display... Or did I just miss this entirely?
  18. Yesterday the entire field of ice racers performed a black flag lead, reverse course lap to honor former ice racer Bob Winslade. Bob had to retire from the sport he loved over 20 years ago when he began his battle with MS. The last couple of years he has also been battling cancer. He left us on Friday afternoon in the Hospice Care unit at St. Boniface Hospital, surrounded by the family he loved. He was an exceptionally fine racer, very hard to beat. We miss you already Bob. SM

    If we do stick to only 3 classes I would recommend at least having novice sub classes. I have trouble believing 3 classes will do anything but discourage drivers who are not only new to the sport but ones who don’t get much seat time. We saw inspiring positive growth in 2018 I would recommend against a new and experimental rule set that could discourage the momentum of 2018.
  20. @Brian_Earl_Spilner Does not speak for everyone on here. This forum is supposed to be a welcoming place. “To bring about and foster a spirit of unity, comradeship, and sportsmanship among Members.” I personally don’t see an issue with you sharing your F1 experience. Welcome here.
  21. This years winter HPDE classroom session will be mandatory for all returning ice racers. There is no cost for this.
