  5. Hot laps are NON-Timed laps around Gimli Motor Sports Park Road Race Track. One session is approximately 3 hours. You’re entitled to as many laps as you and your car can handle. The track is 1.3 miles long with 8 or 9 corners depending on configuration. WSCC RR track days are on the Friday before every road race event and before the HPDE/Race School. Here is the Schedule. May 4, 5 & 6th HPDE Weekend May 25, 26 & 27th Road Race #1 June 22, 23 & 24th Road Race #2 July 20, 21, 22nd Road Race #3 August 17, 18 & 19th Road Race #4 September 21, 22 & 23rd Road Race #5

  9. Each season pass entitles that member to one non-transferable 2018 session of hot laps.
  10. Transponders

    What colour is it?
  11. Registration: Last year I made a plea to all racers to register early. This is so important for many reasons. Most noteworthy having a grid registered well in advance of the event for out of town racers. Imagine thinking of travelling 15 hours with only two cars registered for the event you plan on attending. With more racers registered we are validating their road trips. Early registration $320 Late Registration $350 Early registration closes two weeks prior to the event. I want us all to look at registration being $320. If you’re paying $350 you’re paying a penalty. Transponders: With the changes in T/A and the continued increase in participation WSCC is faced with the need to purchase more transponders. The rental fee this year for road race will be $50 per event. It’s time for the full time racers to start looking at the MyLaps leasing program. This will take some of the burden off the club. The program will be cheaper than renting for a full season. Volunteer Jobs: When registering for T/A or RR you will notice a new drop down menu to assign yourself a volunteer job. I’ve seen too many drivers meetings where the same people are raising their hands when the jobs list is being discussed. I’ve also noticed a select few who have NEVER raised their hands. This will be another way to encourage racers to register early. The earlier you register will give you an opportunity to pick your preferred job. All too often these jobs are being spread between too few people. It will also encourage some racers who don’t pull their weight. These assignments are for anyone who calls GMP home. If you’re racing as a team EACH driver will need to assign themselves a job. Racers from Castrol etc. Do not apply. They are our guests. Friday workers are also exempt from this. Please remember that your pit garbage and recycling is your responsibility.
  12. Thank you Dino and Judy for everything you’ve done and continue to do for WSCC.
  13. We have notified the lounge that our group is attending a meeting @ 12:00pm Sunday March 18th. Hoping to have a great turnout and discussion for 2019! thanks @Jim Eh.
  14. Hey Trev We will confirm that early next week!
  15. It would be nice to have the officials represented. I know I’m pretty furious about how we ended the season.
  16. Everyone is welcome to participate and from the looks of things we could use all the help we can get. We have a short timeframe to sort things out. Let’s use this thread to list who is available and when. We need lots of outgoing people to work the booth to positively promote the club. If you’re available before or after the show we will also need help with set up and tear down. Signup on the sheet please. We are still looking for cars. Currently we have space reserved for 6 cars. Could anyone interested in bringing a suitable vehicle please post below. We have a few lined up but as always are hoping to have all disciplines represented. I believe we a have video display sorted out. Here is the show schedule March 16 3pm - 10pm March 17 10am - 10pm March 18 10am - 6pm SIGN UP SHEET HERE https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ULmhhNo7nK2dEgrvcdFmSPx0uMUPMl4WxbUcwfXz-Is/edit?usp=sharing
  17. I just received confirmation tonight at 10:28pm that we will NOT be able to secure a display for 2018. Thank you to everyone who offered to lend a hand or a car for our display.
  18. Does S.A.R. Sign division sell Black Rockets?
  19. Here’s the Video! Thank you again to our Title Sponsor S.A.R. https://www.facebook.com/SAR.JoinOurJourney/videos/2073280862682364/
  20. Just toured the Gimli Race Track 0.85 Km perfectly placed in front of the hotel and pier. Track was built by grader so there’s nicely sloped gentle banks not harsh brick walls to smash your car up. Even after the sun and temps we’ve had there is ZERO slush or water on the track. We should have some great racing this weekend!!
  21. Practice 10:00 - 11:00am Racing @ Noon
  22. There is a group of racers who have brought up wanting to discuss a possible spec tire, max treadwear or illegal tire agreement for 2018. How do we feel as a group on this issue?
  23. Yes. For 2018 drivers have to be wider than they are tall. Order my trophy!
  24. As you always do! Love the live timing. thanks @grail
