    WTD: Gimli Morning CoDrive

    Thanks Brian. He has a ride for the afternoon, just looking to fill the morning for him. BTW, how many sets of tires are you going to go through this weekend?

    This may not be the thread for it (but I didn't see another thread related to the Gimli event)... But do we have an itinerary/timesheet for Sunday? I ask because I likely won't be able to make the morning autox event, but I'd like to run the evening event. Is that going to be doable?

    WTD: Gimli Morning CoDrive

    Sorry Tim, as much as I would like to offer Liam a co-drive, I'll most likely be doing Time-Attack Sunday morning/afternoon and doing AutoSlalom in the evening. Considering I'm doing open lapping on Friday, Drift on Saturday, Time Attack Sunday morning, and Autoslalom Sunday evening, there's little opportunity for a co-drive Sunday morning. If my schedule changes, I'll let you know. Likewise, if Liam is interested in a Sunday evening co-drive, let me know. Brian
  10. Hmm, I like your deep insight, but zero DNF's will never happen as long as I'm out there. But, kidding aside, you're right - a course should never be designed to be "tricky" just to make it interesting for those who are more experienced. To me, I look at it simplistically … if a significant number of the entrants are novices, then the course should be designed to accommodate them as well. . No tricky elements required. Your second comment about driving the course with your eyes closed is exactly what I do. Only difference is I didn't realize you're supposed to do this between runs - and not during the run!!! By the way, was this "wise man" you mentioned, the same guy who said "wax on … wax off" ?

    X2 No space for junk in the trunk, but I'll help with whatever else.

    You used to have trunk space lol
  13. That and you should never deliberately create an element where you think "that cone is going to get destroyed".
  14. Can I get #18 please Igor Cabrilo - 6256

    Except for hauling cones around in my car, I'll be available where needed.
  17. A wise man once told me that as a course designer your goal should be zero dnf's. That same man taught me that if you can close your eyes and drive the course in your head between runs, you'll drive better and faster.
  18. There are NO current burning restrictions in the RM of Gimli. http://www.gov.mb.ca/wildfire/burn_conditions.html

    Gimli: Fire Ban Still in Effect

    I will have the Jeep and a flat deck trailer. I could take a couple teams to setup course. Alternatively I can assist where ever needed.

    I'll sign up for #3 as part of "Team A". Seeing as how I have a hatchback (Focus RS #65), I will load up cones from the skidpad and drive out to the road course and set up cones. All I need is another volunteer to ride shotgun and help load cones from the skidpad and deliver to our designated section of the road course. Any takers?

    I’ll help as I can. Timing or where ever.
  25. Hey gang, Our Sunday double header is fast approaching and I am looking to secure a number of people to help out in the transition from the skidpad event to the road course event. I know we always have some workers tear down the course and put things away, which we still need, but we have never simultaneously built a second course. So here is what I need: 0) I don't really need a volunteer although if anyone in our group can easily do this, I might call on you however I expect I will coordinate with Road Race to get the trailer relocated from the skid pad to the infield of the road course. This needs to happen before 1) and the last part of 2) can be completed. 1) 1 or 2 people to help Josh with setting up registration (i.e. open canopy, setup table, put our waivers, course maps, wristbands, etc.) 2) 1 or 2 people to help Matt tear down the timing equipment from the skidpad, relocate to the road course and test. Please note that the equipment must be turned off before collecting it. There is a warning that if the T-links (the little white boxes out at the start, stop and at the trailer) get too close to each other while on, they can mess up the devices. 3) I would like 3 teams of 2 - 3 people that will load some cones into cars and start setting up the road course. The course will be pre-marked with a paint dot so it will be mostly a matter of getting a map and finding the marks. Once we verify that the course is setup properly I would like that same team to chalk the course...it is too long to have 1 or 2 people walk the whole thing. 4) We will see if anyone is interested in ordering in food. If there is big enough demand then we would need someone to go collect said food assuming we can't get delivery. So those are the big things that I can think of. Of course there are lots of little things that I know people will be chipping in for and that's awesome. The more we can coordinate this the better and easier it will go and we can minimize delays. Please post up here if you would like to volunteer and let me know where you can help. Shawn

    Towing Info

    I came across this and thought it was a fantastic initiative by the Police Service in Halton, ON. It would be great if the Winnipeg Police could do this. It says "commercial motor vehicle and trailer" but it does apply to anybody that tows a trailer and race car trailers count! Does anybody know a Winnipeg Police employee or if there is a way to ask them??
