  1. Promoting autocross

    been off the forum for a while and missed the meeting announcement but sounds like some really great discussion went on.
  2. 2017 Autoslalom Results

    Wow, definitely need to up the attendance next year. I counted only about 15 guys who made 10 (or more) events. There were a lot of names (myself included) who used to be full season regulars and only ran a few events this season. Just seems to be a lot of guys getting into new chapters of their lives so I am looking forward to the meeting about getting new blood to smack a few cones around.
  3. im not coming. baby is not feeling good
  4. Promoting autocross

    I would be down for a meeting on this.
  5. 1984 Reynard F 2000 Hayabusa swap

    that is super sad. even more reason to make sure autocross does not die in manitoba
  6. Promoting autocross

    Where was this sandbox thread mentioned? did I miss something or was something deleted that would have made sense of this?
  7. Triple Track Showdown

    I think cross promoting is a great idea. There may be some drag racers out there who are tired of going in a straight line and dont know it lol. Daryl may not like to co-op but that does not mean that WSCC guys can't show up for a scheduled test and tune night and get a time slip. So this is what I am thinking: WSCC could hold a One lap of America style event that is spread out throughout the summer. The events would include all the 4 wheel motorsports offered in manitoba and competators would be able to choose 3 out of the 5 to earn points towards a "One lap of Manitoba" title. IE a road racer could choose one of their best Road races then try out an auto cross and a drag race, or an autocrosser could do a time attack and a drift event. (A RWD road racer may be able to try all 5) I think the class and points systems from autocross would work very well for all the timed events. some other system would have to somehow tie into it for the drifting as a judged event. We would have to pick a few dates of each of the disciplines to set as official events that go towards the title so that each dicipline knows there may be newbies in odd cars showing up. What better way to attract a few drag racers over to our side than to show up in a formula V obviously most non road racers would not be able to show up for a door to door race but I think its only fair to include the road races as everyone else would have a chance to earn points in their current discipline. and anyone planing on doing time attack would need a licence as well, so we would need to get this set up in the winter and have the word out before the hpde. We could even get the word to the drag community if this is going to be a thing and they could join. If the ice racers want to join in I would suggest something like an ice autocross.
  8. Autocross age?

    oh thats right, there was debate about getting karts included in Canada like the states does
  9. Autocross age?

    in other words you have to have demonstrated to a government official that you can operate a motor vehicle safely to race. makes sense. karts must fall under a different rule set though, because don't children race karts at sanctioned events?
  10. 2017 Co-drive(s)?

    Big thanks to Brian Wiebe for the co-drice in his RS! Will be hard to top a car with drift mode but people are welcome to try. And if anyone is wondering, yes Drift mode works! I will be camping in Riding Mountain this weekend so if anyone was thinking of offering, then save it for event 13. Just a note and not sure how much evidence it is of my help but both rookies I drove with this year dropped a couple seconds over the 4 runs.
  11. 1993 Honda Prelude SR-V

    wow mpi really hates older cars. I wonder if using their classic car insurance would defend against that?
  12. Autocross age?

    I believe he just needs a parent to sign a waver. Don't take my word as law but Tim's son was racing at 16.
  13. 2017 Co-drive(s)?

    sounds great to me! I'll send you a pm to work out details
  14. 2017 Co-drive(s)?

    Damn Saw this a few hours too late hopefully the stars align next time. I also want to add that anyone who lets me co-drive their car this year (and anyone who has let me drive in the past) will get the option of driving my SP preped Celica AWD Turbo when it is finished. I want to say that will be next year but the way my life goes sometimes I can't guarantee that.
