    • Has the code been created for volunteers to register for Friday lapping?
    • We still have a few spots left at our Race and Licensing School, but we need to cut off registration soon! If you are still sitting on the fence, and you are not sure whether you should take the school, this one is the one to take! The weather is almost guaranteed to be great, and a somewhat smaller group will give you more time with your instructors, and even more opportunity to learns and get familiar with your car. You are pretty sure that you will never race, and therefore you won't need a license? Most of us who are regularly on track said such a statement at one time. Reality is that this school is not all about a license, but about learning how to control your car at speeds well beyond of those attainable on the street. Once you have become confident in your skills, any unforeseen emergency at road speeds is handled with aplomb; therefore, the skills obtained at the track directly transfer into your everyday driving on the road. Furthermore, taking the school allows you to decide whether or not you should be applying for a race or a Time Attack License - it keeps your options open should you decide to compete eventually. Lastly, taking the school will give you green wristband status immediately when coming for a hotlapping day. Register, show up and immediately hit the track instead of having to go through the mini-school and being restricted for a while. Click on:     2024 WSCC/SFR Competition License School (motorsportreg.com) and sign up for April 27th and 28th!      
    • Rodney Banman Member# 7088 Please reserve #41 Thanks Helix.

    • Oh yeah! My bad Helix, it was #61 Thanks for catching that
    • Vincent Ho Member# 7670 Please reserve #56  Thank you
    • That's pretty sweet Mark. I plan on building something similar. I just need more space in the basement.. haha.
    • @firelizard #16 isn't available, can you confirm it is #61 that you want carry over from last season?
    • Update: The parts are going to start arriving this week and the crew from Advanced Sim Racing will arrive on the 22nd and by the 26th they should be all up and running HOWEVER the rooms they are going in will not be ready for them until 2nd week of May so we can't start renting them out until the rooms are ready.
    • Selling my excellent/mint condition Zamp full face helmet. Flat black in colour. Only selling as I prefer open face for AutoX. Includes helmet bag .$100.
    • And then there is this from the WCMA Sporting Regulations. It's all about using common sense and being safe.  
    • No, there is no rule saying that you can't bring extra fuel to the track. Obviously the fuel needs to be stored in an approved container. Just as a quick reminder to everyone who does so: As the day gets hotter and the sun shines on the jerry cans, they will pressurize dramatically. Please relief that pressure on a regular basis - every race weekend I see plastic containers which have taken on the shape of a soccer ball due to the excessive pressure inside.
    • Working on it as we speak. Still some wrinkles to iron out regarding reserved number being locked in.  As far as the schedule for HPDE/Track Day events, they will coincide with the race weekend dates as shown on our Website Calendar:  
    • Any summer tire, Bridgestone re71r, Dunlop starspecs (of any model), RS3/4, falken azenis etc will suffer from extended periods in the cold.  the cracking usually only occurs in severe cold (-10 or colder as I’ve seen) and all summer tires fall off/ lose adhesion and become slower after freezing.    ideally a warm basement or at minimum a insulated structure to store them is required to keep them close to 0 or above.   
    • Hey all, Time Attack & AutoCross = no time to ride the trails.  I have this gorgeous Rocky Mountain Fatbike just sitting around and getting lonely.  On the other hand, I'm always looking for ways to improve performance of my car(s), tools, etc.  If you like this bike and have something to trade, in the range of $1,000 value, I'm open to discussing a swap.  Note that the bike is an XL frame and with those huge tires, if you're not 6' or taller, forget it.  It's in mint shape, less than 600km of riding, 2018 model, Rocky Mountain Blizz 20.   Currently retailing at about $1850.
    • Are the car number registration list and future schedules coming soon as well?
    • Is there any rule regarding fuel cans at the track? I've considered bringing a 5 gallon gas canister to the track but I can appreciate there being some concern about dozens of fuel canisters around the track if everyone started doing it.
    • I apologize for being so late with this notice.  The track will be open for late registrations at 10am.  Newcomers will have to get themselves into Al's orientation at 11.  Better get registered before that.  Track goes hot at noon.  We'll have a short lunch break around 3:30 to feed our staff.  There's no food concession at the track but you'll have time to run into Gimli and grab something.  Higher horsepower cars will probably need gas too.
    • Bump! Track season is almost upon us, just needs tires and a driver!
    • Do you want to sharpen your driving skills? Do you want to explore the wider range of your own and your car's abilities? Do you want to go fast without having to worry about a police car spoiling your fun? Do you feel that driving in a controlled environment is the safest way to push yourself and your car to a self-declared limit?   Then you need to sign up for WSCC's Race & Licensing School on April 27 & 28! Learn how to improve your car control and get an heightened feeling for your vehicle's behaviour at the limits of traction. These are skills that translate directly into improved driving skills in everyday traffic situations.   But be aware: there are only a few days left before registration closes. Don't get caught wishing you would have signed up! Go to:  2024 WSCC/SFR Competition License School (motorsportreg.com)    and sign up today to ensure that you will be part of this year's event! The weather promises to be very accommodating, and you will find yourself surrounded by like-minded gearheads who want to have as much fun as you do!   We are looking forward to greeting you at Gimli Motorsport Park on April 27th!    
    • Hey all - Not quite a technical question, but it is for the track car... are there any WSCC-affiliated body shops or recommendations these days? I have both MPI-claim, and non-MPI work that I need/want to get done in the next little bit. Thanks
    • I should have clarified that these pictures were taken when the car & tires were brand new back in 2018. Audi Winnipeg left the car parked outside on their lot for too long during a Winnipeg winter.
