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??
We didn't really stop much, to be fair. We pretty much nailed it right to Westhawk Lake. And once we got there, a couple of the guys had to immediately book it home. My wife and I snapped a few of just ourselves and the BMW in front of the lake, but I don't imagine anybody cares to see those.
Yeah, does not always work out but for those interested, it is a 2-day event and Stephen Hui (who re-located from Seattle a couple of years ago) is doing the course design....be interesting to see what he does. And, also, I realize this is short notice and this is due to my own "busi-ness" ... not good but it is what it is.
Liam is looking for a codrive for the morning session at Gimli. He isn't on the forums much so let me know if you have anything available.
For those that don't know him, he is my son and can drive. He has driven my Vette and his Corolla previously so pretty much any drive layout works for him. He may not be able to coach you, but he will definitely get your tires warm. He does have a ride for the afternoon/evening session, so only the morning event on the skidpad is needed for him to get me to pay for his gas to/from the event....lol. Let me know if you have something available and I will let him know.
FWIW he did beat me in my car once.
It appears that your experience trumps theory every time. I did a little deeper digging into the results of the last 21 events (2017 - till present) and came up with an average count of 8.5% for DNF's. Highest DNF score was last year's May 27th event at Gimli. Lowest DNF score was 1.6 % at St. Andrews Aug 26th event.
Cone counts averaged out to 50.6%. Highest cone score was a whopping 80.2% at Aug 20th event at Gimli. Lowest cone score was 25.7% at St. Andrews May 12, 2018 event.
I guess it makes sense that the highest DNF and cone counts were at Gimli skidpad … lack of being familiar with the course?.
Speaking of Gimli, which is coming up this weekend, I wonder what kind of course design Shawn will come up with? I have this sinking feeling that I will be contributing heavily to both the cone counts and DNF's.
