  2. Race 5 - Feb 18, 2018

    Good job Peter. Thanks for this.
  3. Final Schedule for Saturday and Sunday. We are going to run two groups of Racers instead of both at once as we have a few more cars. We are still going to do the Ice Lappers although only twice during racing day and a 3rd time after racing is done.

  5. Ice racing in summer

    We have got to try a set of these tires at Gimli. Totally.
  6. Are you thinking of going? That would be awesome.
  7. Ice Race Event #3

    I've said it before and I'll say it again; we have the worlds best volunteers. Thank you to all of them.
  8. Hello everyone, I just got a call from Super 8 and they said that nobody has contacted them for a room under the booking number above. Nobody needs a room? They cancelled it yesterday although I have asked for 5 rooms to be held under this booking conf for two more days. Book a room if you need one. Thanks.
  9. Hello, Ice Racers; for the race cars that have sold their $150 worth of raffle tickets prior to registering for the last two race weekends (Portage and Gimli), your entrance fee will be $80 each for the race weekend instead of $160 for the weekend. If you haven't sold your raffle tickets then you'll be $160 per weekend. Yes I know, math is hard, although it should be quite clear what to do. One part came up from a car that has more than one driver; The 3 x $50 raffle tickets are per car and not per driver. So if you have 38 ice race drivers that share one car, that is 3 x $50 raffle tickets total and not per driver. That is my fault using the word "participant". Get selling your tickets, instructions are above and it is easy to do.
  10. Earlier WSCC Ice event?

    I think my Dad was there.

  14. Yes the car count is low and Yes there are guys/girls rumbling about "are we going to have another race weekend" I will tell you now that we will have the next scheduled race weekends. If the guys and girls want to race, then we'll race. Yes it does cost the club money when there isn't enough competitors although who cares, do you guys and girls want to race? If so then register and we will have a race. We can't attract anyone if we're cancelling weekends, I'm not cancelling weekends. I will take the heat from the Exec on the budget for the loss as long as there are racers. To all racers and volunteers; the race weekend is on next weekend no matter what. Thanks.
