  1. What is the difference between the closing date/time of the early or late registration as they both appear to be 14 days before the race day. Or am I reading that wrong? From the Supp Regs: "Early online registration closes two weeks prior to the race weekend" "Late online registration closes Friday 11:59pm 14 Days prior to the race weekend" What is the difference?

  3. I am bumping this as I have to move this bin, too much space being taken up.
  4. I may know this poor old Suzuki. RIP.
  5. I had a conversation with Steve L tonight about a happy medium for the Sunday morning and we came up with a 4+4 so instead of sending RTI out for 6 races straight, we're do 4 races studded then 4 races RTI then Enduro then Ride Alongs. SATURDAY Schedule: 09:30 Worker's meeting Red Trailer (make sure you are here) 09:45 Driver's meeting Red Trailer (make sure you are here) 10:00 Practice, Track is Hot Studded practice 15 mins Rubber practice 15 mins Studded practice 15 mins Rubber practice 15 mins 11:00 LUNCH, Lakeview Resort in Lounge 12:00 NOON Racing: (12 mins Rubber, 10 mins Studded) Studded Race 1 Rubber Race 1 Studded Race 2 Rubber Race 2 Studded Race 3 Rubber Race 3 Ballet of the Plow Studded Race 4 Rubber Race 4 Studded Race 5 Rubber Race 5 Studded Race 6 Rubber Race 6 PARADE LAP. **All cars line up, immediately after last rubber race. We wave to spectators as thank you and let them know racing has ended. 16:00 Finish (approx., can run later if needed) We thank volunteers. 17:00-18:00 - Track is open to race cars and race drivers only. Ride alongs are permitted following our normal rules. ** Note to T&S; may we please have the points figured out by this evening for the starting order for Sunday. Thanks. _______ Sunday is 4+4 Race Day (4 x studded races, 4 x RTI Races) then Studded Enduro, plus Ride-a-longs (Mandatory). 9:30am Worker meeting Red Trailer (make sure you are here) 9:45am Driver's meeting Red Trailer (make sure you are here) Studded cars should be ready to go for 10:00am sharp; make sure your tin cans are already warmed up, suited up, tuned up, oiled up, belted up, fueled up, pressured up, tired up, axel'd up and wrenched up. You should only need to grab your helmet and go racing on time. No practice so race starts immediately. 10:00am - 11:00am - NO PRACTICE, straight to racing * Note to T&S, starting order is championship points like normal race day, not from finished from last Race on Saturday. ** For T&S - We'll need a weekend total of 1st, 2nd, 3rd for Michael Lazer, Lakeview Resort Trophies please. 12 mins Rubber, 10 mins Studded Studded Race 1 Rubber Race 1 Studded Race 2 Rubber Race 2 11am to 12pm - Lunch; Lakeview Resort in Lounge. Workers and BONUS, Drivers are welcome for lunch on WSCC with workers!!!! 12pm to 1:30pm Studded Race 3 Rubber Race 3 Studded Race 4 Rubber Race 4 1:40pm; Driver's meeting for Studded Enduro Race; - Everyone be at this meeting. Meeting will be run by Jen B and Bob W. Studded guys help out RTI drivers with spare tires if you can, let's have everyone who wants to, participate. Starting grid is a random draw from car numbers. Some points for the race and driver's meeting and you may as well have the info now: * The entire session shall be 30 minutes * Split it to 2 x 15 minute sessions with a 10 minute break between. * You can change drivers during the break with another properly licensed racer * Time does stop during full course caution or red flag. Lap counting does not stop for full course caution. * Race timing will not stop if you stuff it and need a tow, lap counting will not, you will re-join at the back a lap down. * The initial start will be dual lanes, all other restarts will be single file * Remember that black flag means get off race line, slow down and pull in to the pits in the Staging lane and Red Flag means you stop racing, pull off the race line and stop safely on the track. Wait for corner marshel direction via flagging station. 2pm Enduro Race Starts 2:50pm Drivers meeting for all drivers for VIP Ride-Along and Workers Appreciation. Meet at red trailer. 1) All workers come in and leave their stations 2) This is mandatory for all drivers; if your car is broken then you will go out to a corner and work during this session so dress warm. If there is already workers for corners then to go to Grid and help with tee'ing people up with helmets and drivers and lining up 1 + 1 so it runs smooth. On the grid you will need to help passengers with the seat belt as they are not used to harnesses. 4) For Driver's: Line up in the two grid lanes with RTI in the left and Studs in the Right. Do three or four hot laps at 80% with your rider then pull back in to the grid line waiting for the next rider. Remember to remind your passenger to fold their arms and not grab on to the roll cage. 6) Michael Lazer should be here right now for Trophies prior to ride-along. FYI trophies will be: RTI it will be top points for the Gimli weekend, for Studded it will be the top three of the Studded Enduro. 7) Once Michael is done his trophy's then the ride-along starts right away. Get your cars in line or get out to the corners. 8) Remember this is ride-alongs and not racing. Pay attention to your mirrors, stay away from Pit Entrance or Pit Exit, use hand motions if coming in the pits, you don't need to drive at 100%. That's it for instructions and I'd like to that all the volunteers that make this happen plus congratulations to everyone for another season of Ice Racing in Manitoba. 4pm: Done 2019! And track is closed.
  6. You're famous Hamish: https://www.portageonline.com/local/fans-pack-the-bank-to-watch-fire-on-ice-racing2 And look at this: https://www.portageonline.com/local/fire-on-ice-racing-on-crescent-lake Both Mat and Sckeeeve were mentioned.
  7. I got a call at 5pm on Friday on my way back from Winkler from the guy we lined up to help finish the track, pits, security road and access road and he had broken down that day at noon. I was then panicking as lapping was 10am next morning and now it's 5:05pm on a Friday. I got on my phone and made a call to Todd Allard from Southern Ground Landscaping and he was already booked solid with removing all the snow that fell earlier that week and said he'd call around. He called me back a couple of times trying to arrange something then finally said "how thick is that Ice?" and next thing I knew he had two units on the way to do this for us. They didn't get at it until much after dark and it was quite the site to see a 9' wide blower shooting snow 100 yards in to the air. Looked like a geyser. Not sure what I would have done if Todd and crew didn't come through for us in the 11th hour.
  8. I'll say it before Marcoux does. Two hands on the wheel. You can't keep ahead of it with one hand you just can't. Glad everyone was ok and we're happy to have you guys out tearing up the track. It was a beautiful venue?
  9. I can't remember a single year that I have been paying attention to the rules that we haven't had a big shift YOY. We should embrace it and move on.
  10. Do we have a choice? I thought it was all ST the way I read it. I haven't done a deep dive although at first blush, ST looks easier.
  11. Excellent idea. Good work Jim. Makes it much easier to budget too if we have the required replacement list.
  12. That video sends a message to me. Time to talk to the wife but better get her some wine first. Thank you Mat.
  13. Another reason to keep my Disc Velocity subscription going. I checked the link you posted and I can't see when it will be on Velocity and I could be blind. If you know, can you post it please? Thanks
