  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Hello Ice Racing boys and girls, Remember when your kids were/are in sports and you had to sell XXX amount of tickets or calendars or whatever for the sport otherwise you cut a cheque yourself? We’re doing the exact same thing although it isn't calendars, this is something you can use: The Prize: SAR Is putting up a race car wrap or decaling package valued at $1500 and we’re going to raffle it off. The Lucky Winner will get: - A custom race car wrap installed and doesn’t have to be Ice Racer OR - You can use for decaling your race trailer OR - You can use for your buddy’s Mud Racer OR - You can use to get that larger banner you wanted to put on your neighbor’s lawn saying his dog craps in your yard OR - You can use to decal your daily driver OR - You can use to decal for your work vehicles OR - For signage OR - Split with a buddy to decal his bike and put some work signs on your truck OR - Mix and match what you would like to use the decals for ** Basically you get a budget of $1500 to spend at SAR in their decaling/sign division Partial wrap your work vehicle (background) or decal your daily driver: Decal your bike or UTV with full graphics: Tickets are $50 each - Each 2018 Ice Racing participant must sell three tickets. Read that part again: Each 2018 Ice Racing participant must sell three tickets. Each racer is responsible for the $150 revenue needed (3 x $50 tickets) per racer. - The Ice Racing Participant is responsible for topping up the missing tickets personally if they cannot sell them. - Anyone can purchase tickets online, they don’t have to hunt down an Ice Racing participant Prize Terms: - Draw will be made March 7th by Randy at SAR and will be video'd and posted on our forums - Last ticket sold is March 6th and topped up by racers who are short - No Cash value - For use in SAR Sign/Decal division only (Wraps, decals, banners); not to be claimed in their power sports division. Although you are more than welcome to check them out. - The recipient must make arrangements to claim prize by Nov 2018 - The Winner will provide us with a photo of whatever they decal. How do you buy/sell a ticket? Here is the link to buy a ticket (thank you Darin W): https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/2018-ice-race-grand-prize-raffle-gimli-motorsports-park-winnipeg-sports-car-club-162797 and make sure whoever is buying the ticket notes who the Ice Racer is so we can apply to their three ticket quota. NOTE: If you are reading this and want to buy a ticket and you are not an ice racer then go ahead, you don't need to wait for one of them to ask you. When can you start selling tickets? Right now!!! I bought one under Bill L and so did Clint S while we were testing the MSR. To each racer that plans on racing on ice, I would start right now and even look to other verticals like road racers, dirt track racers, go carts, whatever. Don’t wait until the last second. Thanks.
  12. Earlier WSCC Ice event?

    I think my Dad was there.
  13. Thank you Peter!!
  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.

  16. 2018 Supp Regs

    Hello everyone, I know you are waiting for the Supp Regs for 2018 and I have them almost done although waiting for one last part. I can't post them yet although here is the reader's digest: - Added Xa AWD Class to RTI. We have one competitor that is building an AWD car and is going to test it during the first Saturday at Maz in Rubber and if the car can complete lap(s) without wicked under-steer in to the bank every lap then we're going to fire it up and invite more AWD's as that is probably going to be the fastest growing aspect of our sport. - $160 entrance fee instead of $140. We need a title sponsor - Hans required for Studded Racers One part that I am waiting for is the mod to a-pillar roll cage brace that was posted at end of season. Working with the specs. It will be a few days to firm up the mods for a-pillar although if you have any specific questions please PM me. Thanks.

  19. I need to ask a question to whoever it is that is driving this; can you tell me in one or two sentences what your goal is for the CCC? Is it to cut costs? As we spent a PILE of money last year just to compete in CCC. Is it to increase competition? I already stated in a previous post that watching the CCC races last year was boring and nowhere near as tight as the competition was the year before pre-CCC. What is our goal for doing all this back and forth for all these posts for the CCC? What are we trying to solve that already hasn't been dealt with by an international association and their calculations in the spreadsheet? Someone clue me in on our single goal and I'll comment properly. Thanks.
  20. Cool car videos thread

  21. 2018 Ice Racing Registration Links

    It can't be that hard, Super Wayne did his online via MSR. One part to remember is that it is less work for registration girl if you pay in advance. Thank you.
  22. Windshield decals available

    From Peter M: <<<< I don't really pay much attention to them (shark fins) during races. I usually can tell which cars are which. So I don't think they need to be mandatory. >>>> There you go. If you have a shark fin then add it, if you don't then you won't be black flagged. Thanks.
  23. Windshield decals available

    The Shark Fins were not made mandatory although at some tracks that was the only way Timing and Scoring could see your car which means if they can't see your car, then you don't get points. Peter M is doing T&S for us again this year, I will check with him on preference.
  24. You hear that outside? You need to listen closely. That is the sound of lakes and ponds making ice. That means it is time for all of us to start thinking ice racing and time to make a list of what you need to get your rig in order Tentative Schedule; Jan 6 -7 Water Ski Pond Saturday Qual, Sunday Race Day Jan 20 – 21 Water Ski Pond Saturday TNT, Sunday Race Day Feb 3 - 4 Water Ski Pond Saturday TNT, Sunday Race Day Feb 17 - 18 Portage la Prairie Double Header? Mar 3 - 4 Gimli Ice Fest – Lakeview Res Possible Double Header? Put it on your calendar kids (tentative), it will be a good year. Thanks
