  3. Promoting autocross

    I just checked out RRX area The parking lot south east of the Downs race track is large enough for an event but needs to be resurfaced. This would be an excellent autocross lot if 1. you could get it and 2. it was resurfaced Our old race area still looks the same, large bump between the east and north ends and large man hole protruding 2 inch's up at the same transition area. Also new buildings and access roads into the area. I would deem this area as borderline dangerous do to the proximity of the buildings and confinement of the area and I would not recommend it for autocross.

    If we got this hot dog vendor I think attendance may sky rocket... lol Locally grown in Manitoba, the girls from Steinbach
  5. Promoting autocross

    Beau is definitely on track with promotion, but in addition to cards and word of mouth I keep thinking about where we compete. Location, Location, Location: St. Andrews isn't the greatest spot or even a nice piece of pavement. Events at RRX we're better attended and I believe the location had a major part in that. I don't exactly remember the RRX being a great piece of pavement, especially with that nasty bump between the east and north sections. I would be willing to seek out a new location or two, knock on a few doors, make a few calls, see where it goes, Of course I would not proceed without the executives blessing and go ahead. You know how to get a hold of me.

    I like where you're going with this... I see many clubs state side have two classes. Pro Class - A voluntary class usually populated by drivers that consistently finish at the top of the leader board. These drivers usually show up for most if not all events. 1st and 2nd place trophy only PAX determined. Open Class - For those that come out to have some fun, are new at the sport or just want to compete against other drivers with similar skill sets. Trophies in accordance with the number of drivers with a minimum number of qualifying events. PAX factor. note: Novice Class rolled into open class (we have seen the odd Novice driver do very well in their first year). When I was state side this year they gave out shirts, ball caps and decals which was a nice touch, something we use to do! Maybe something we could use as promotional bait for an open class. This is where the Novice drivers can get recognized. Nothing says promo more than an eager Novice wearing a WSCC Autocross T-shirt and bragging to all their friends. I also wonder (and I'm going to get slammed for this one) do we have too many events? 18 events + 2 schools + 2 test and tune + a club event (what ever that was). wow 23 events in a 21 week summer! Maybe its watering down the entry levels.
  7. Event #14, Sep 9

    Did anyone grab some data for this event, I would be interested in knowing what max speeds were obtained and in what sections.

  10. Event #14, Sep 9

    That was a fun course, I was at the rev limiter through the mid section just before the south end slalom as you head south and at the end of the same slalom heading north before the finish. My run 3 was comical, first I was late on the brakes at the south pivot then I was late on a turn heading south on one of the cross over cones, then as I head into the last south end slalom a loose pen on my dash (which I forgot to store after using it 10 minutes earlier) falls onto my feet, but we're not done yet! As I head towards the finish I reach for 3rd and leave it in neutral, with my gas fully depressed the car is screaming.... Palm Slap

    Unofficial results... Mark's best run was his 2nd, still leaving him .063 secs back. Noticed a 1946 Jeep YC-J finished in 3rd, interesting looking machine.

  13. 2017 SCCA Nationals

    As of 2:04 pm Mark has one run left, currently sitting in 6th place, .063 secs back of that 5th place trophy. Here's wishing him the best of luck!
