  1. Electric and hybrid vehicles are now permitted at events sanctioned by ASN Canada (like WSCC): https://www.asncanada.com/electric-vehicles/
  2. Here's my best run: Just before the video starts, Nick commented that my first run looked like 60 seconds of panic.
  3. Here's my 4th run. I didn't capture my 1st run which was way less wet, and ignore the run counter in the video.
  4. No changes for this weekend, that's not what people signed up for. Or didn't sign up for. 5 runs, as advertised.
  5. Username checks out. In all seriousness, I'm sorry about the results. We're sorting through them to see what's going on. Maintaining competition purity is a primary goal for us, and it all starts with the results. I'll let everyone know once this is resolved.
  6. I can confirm this. Kosta, take him up on his offer!
  7. And I could probably score more touchdowns if basketball nets were bigger. But that's a different game then.
  8. I loved the auto trans in the C7 Z06 for the two laps at an autocross school. I couldn't shift that fast, and it felt like it was wired into my brain stem. It was always in the right gear. Granted, it only used 2, 3, 4 once I got off the line, but it downshifted under braking and kept that tire-shredding power available at any moment I wanted. Stunning. Other cars were going between 90 and 110 kph through the finish on that course. The C7 was ~140 kph. Woah.
  9. I love seeing the other run videos! Cool. I'm torn on the # of runs. SCCA Nationals is the gold standard of the sport. I heard a fast driver say something like: "Anyone can be fast in 10 runs, I can be fast in 2." But, more runs = more fun for not a lot longer on site.
  10. So many cones getting hit! That wasn't our intention while setting it up. I was cringing during the first run group: cone, cone, two cones, cone, etc! I had fun, but didn't get video of my fastest run. Here's my 5th, just a couple tenths slower than my fastest:
  11. Sorry about your evening. Playlist of Corvette academy videos:
  12. I love it! Not so hot on the square-round steering wheel, or the thought of tire prices... Some people are really hating it. I hope this thing is a huge seller. Like, practically flooding the market. Then, I'll get a nice used one for used GM prices in 5-10 years. Most of them will get idled around with the occasional blast of power. That kind of performance scares most people.
  13. Oh man, let's not go back to those days of stop boxes. The vast majority of the drivers were able to follow instructions the first time. We'll keep educating people.
  14. I leave all my old Civic shells in @cboettch's front yard.
  15. My fastest recorded run for event 6: My fastest for event 7: I'm pretty surprised at the low G-numbers! I need to start looking into some street tires to fit my car. Hoosiers just don't work well on our surfaces.
  16. Schedules are here: https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/2019-wscc-autoslalom-event-6-gimli-motorsports-park-winnipeg-sports-car-club-211259 and https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/2019-wscc-autoslalom-event-7-gimli-motorsports-park-winnipeg-sports-car-club-646839 We're racing on the runway between road racing and karting. Participants and spectators enter through the main entrance here: https://goo.gl/maps/4v6npi3sdTYKiKZN7 Plan for a 20-minute delay as we can only cross the track in the break between races. We're hoping for a food vendor, but haven't heard a confirmation yet so I'm going to pack a light lunch to be safe.
  17. Weird. We don't have a cap for the event. We can fit everyone in, just show up and we'll get you in at the trailer. Sorry for the confusion!
  18. It's looking like the forecast is for clear skies all day Sunday now! The rain that was previously-forecast for Sunday will hold off until Monday. Should be a fun day at the last Gimli autocross until September.
  19. Nice idea, but way too short to change for the 7th! How about 'bring-a-friend'? One entry fee covers two people. One of them must be new to autoslalom.
  20. I love the ideas! We have a wonderful form of motorsport in autocross that's very accessible at a lower budget. It's my major passion, and I wish I could share it with more people. As mentioned, no license needed. Can be as cheap as $25 if you register early, pay online, and have a WSCC membership! Schedules are on the event registration page. If you're already up at the Gimli lapping day on July 6, you can stay around for two autocrosses on July 7! July 7 morning event: https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/2019-wscc-autoslalom-event-6-gimli-motorsports-park-winnipeg-sports-car-club-211259 July 7 afternoon event: https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/2019-wscc-autoslalom-event-7-gimli-motorsports-park-winnipeg-sports-car-club-646839 You get 4 timed runs on a new course, and you pick up cones for other drivers when you're not driving. Bring water, sunscreen, comfortable shoes, and a waterproof tub to put all your stuff in. Yes, we run rain or shine! Even if you don't want to enter, drop by and we'll get you in a passenger seat for a few rides. It's a very different form of racing from the road course given the limited # of laps on a track you've never seen before and won't see again. Frequent direction changes make for an exciting ride even at normal highway speeds! Track and autocross are both awesome in different ways. Ha! I was wondering who that was! I knew it had to be someone I knew. Nice work!
  21. Fun course today! Quite an interesting contrast from yesterday; with today's course greatly rewarding planning ahead and a good dose of patience! 6 runs for everyone was nice too. Here's my 3rd and fastest run:
  22. Another fun event! Here's my sliding 3rd and fastest run:
  23. We're definitely a go for the T&T/fun runs. We'll have to be flexible and make it work with so few people, but that probably means many many runs. I anticipate a few people in cars getting cones.
  24. We'll run as per the MSReg.com schedule: Gate opens 9:00 AM Check in and registration 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM Course open to walk 9:00 AM - 10:45 AM Rookie meeting and course walk 10:15 AM – 10:45 AM Drivers meeting 10:45 AM – 11:00 AM First run group starts 11:00 AM Lunch 12:30 PM Second run group starts 1:00 PM The idea is to have everyone over watching the end of the road racing and/or home for dinner.
  25. Interesting thought, Mark! I've seen other clubs run more runs and kind of like it. Another thing I've seen is an 'X' class (or some other name) where only your first 3 runs count towards your event results. This simulates the big US events as far as getting it done in 3, but gives you extra fun runs every time. We have small entry numbers this weekend. I'm open to doing more runs if everyone wants.
