Tire stack building party

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

WSCC needs about 10 volunteers to build tire stacks before vintage event.

These are to be place in front of the burm on the outside of T3.

Yes I know leveling the burm is the best solution but there's too much red tape atm . So the best solution for now is to pile tires in front of that burm.

IMO we shouldn't race until this has been dealt with.

We need about 150 200 tires. I have 80 and 20 more coming to my shop.

So if you have any used tires please bring them to my shop or build a stack at home and bring them to GMP.

With enough people we should have this done in no time.

The plan is to build them at my shop, then bring them to GMP.

OR if no one want to deal with it I'm going to hire some people, then we will all need to pay.

If you want to help out contact me ASAP.

I will see what I can find for tires around my shop. How can I pre-build these stacks? What is the recommended height and fastening method to tie them down? We should probably use metal banding tape?

I saw the pile you guys made, great start and great job. 

I missed the party today but I will be there tomorrow to build more stacks. 

As well as on Thursday at the track to put them in place.

Thank you to, in no particular order:

Matt with the focus,  Helmet F,          Scott Mc,  Ken Mac for helping strap 80 tires into stacks today. 

Took us about 2 hours.

Thank you Murry B and Celco Controls  for the strapping kit.

We stacked 4 or 5 high with 3 straps each.

Then piled them on some pallets so a forklift can put them on Randy's flat deck tow truck, to be delivered to GMP tomorrow.

I also received 20 more tires today and hoping that tomorrow daytime we can get more tires delivered from whoever possible. 

We'll resume tomorrow after work 5 ish or whenever the strapping kit comes back.

If anyone has or works somewhere with a strapping kit and would like to help stack tires, 2 strapping kits will go much faster than 1.

Thanks again guys !  You guys kicked ass today.

See whoever tomorrow. 

Contact me if interested in helping somehow.  204 291 7006

@Jim Eh.  You couldn't have summed it up any better.

I am impressed at how quickly our club reacted to the situation and addressed the concerns.  A HUGE thank-you to Al for organizing the "tire stack building party" and to all those who helped in stacking, banding, delivering, and setting up the soft barrier at corner 3.

And I'm sure I can speak for everyone when I wish Don a speedy recovery.
