  1. Today
  2. Hello all ! As everybody knows, the HPDE/ Competition Racing School at the beginning of the season is a large event. We try to make this a banner weekend that hopefully sets the tone for the entire year, and that entices more motorsport fans to join our club. And as most of you are also aware, this event requires a lot of helpers ( we call them volunteers, due to the generous pay they receive ). Wayne has just opened up an event on MSReg.com for volunteers to sign up for this first weekend of action at GMP. Please feel free to sign yourself up as volunteer. You will be asked whether you sign up as instructor (proper credentials required), or as worker. What do you get out of working for free? We'll feed and water you, you might get a t-shirt out of it, and you can participate in Friday's Hotlapping for free. But the best thing you get out of it is seeing those glowing smiles and happy faces of the participants, who have a great time getting pushed slowly but steadily towards their personal limits! I am aware that in this forum I am talking to people who routinely volunteer at numerous of our events, and there is no need for me to point out that volunteering for this event comes with the typical sore feet from standing or walking many hours, the possible sun (more likely wind)burn, and all the other detriments associated with helping during such a large event. Being the first event of the year rife with people new to driving on the track, we are hoping to dip once again into your generous time commitment to the club. Thank You!

Do you remember when you came through the licensing school? How happy you were that there were people you could ask questions, who soothed your anxiety and made you feel welcome and included? I think of helping at the event as "paying forward"; giving to new people the knowledge and joy somebody else instilled in you at some point in your life...
  4. On Sunday the racing action starts at 1pm and a separate specific area of the parking lot overlooking the racing action will be dedicated for spectator vehicles. There is no fee to watch and all we ask is that spectators stay in their vehicle (where its warm!) or in the direct vicinity of their vehicle for social distancing purposes.
  5. Yesterday
  6. All ready to drag them back to the pits! See you Sunday.
  7. Hey Dason, I'll be available for timing/scoring or running a corner. Cya this weekend, can't wait!
  8. Last week
  9. After what seems like an eternity, it looks like some cars will be driving around in slippery circles on Lake Shirley this upcoming weekend. Finally!! I'm excited to get back out to support our drivers, and hopefully you are too. Do you remember where your warm clothes are? If you have somehow managed to not use them for a while... it's time to dig it all up and get ready. If you are interested in helping out as a Volunteer, we would be glad to have you. If you have any questions, post them up or send me a message. See you soon! Dason
  10. Hello, A friend wanted to come and watch the actual race on Sunday with his kids and wanted to know if A: is open to the vaccinated public B how much is it? Thanks
  11. Many thanks to Damon, and Nomad Digital! Windshield decals? Tigor
  12. Such awesome news and thank you for your support Damon!
  13. Yea, I spent a bunch of cash lowering my seat 1.25" so that my head (w/ helmet) would be under that line. Thanks
  14. I am pleased to announce that Nomad Digital has agreed to be our WSCC Ice Racing Series Title Sponsor for 2022! Please join me in thanking Damon and his team for the generous support of our winter ice racing series. Along with the financial support the Nomad Digital team is providing they will also be filming and documenting a lot of the ice racing action this winter as part of their Grassroots Racing documentary TV series. Register now and join us to be part of this years exciting ice racing action!
  15. Your Miata ND has the factory roll hoops, which I personally would call acceptable, as they are tied together with a solid structure and are triangulated into the floor structure. While not nearly as good as an aftermarket, purpose-built rollbar, they offer some protection. Please note that there are limits in terms of your height. If a straight bar is being placed from the top of your windshield frame to the top of your roll hoops, there must be enough clearance between your helmet and the bar that during an imagined rollover event your helmet will not touch that bar.
  16. One week in, and 2/3rds of the spots for the Competition Licensing School and HPDE are taken! If you are considering participating this year, don't delay signing up soon as the amount of participants is limited. We will create a waiting list once all spots are spoken for; however, there is no guarantee that anyone on the waiting list will be moving up into an active participant spot.
  17. I have a soft top MX5 (Miata) it has factory roll hoops, profanely not near as good as racing ones. Can I do hot-lapping days?
  18. Earlier
  19. Yes...This is an old post. Since there was some questions about the Carbotech. My cars over the years started out as a 85 RX7, and then moving to a couple of tube frame RX7's. So my comments may not be very relevant as my car is likely a bit lighter (2250lb) than your civic. I have successfully used the Carbotechs from XP8/10 and progressing through the years to XP12 on the rear of my track cars. Fronts I have used the Carbotech XP12/20/24 and RP2, and Hawk DTC-60. They all had pretty decent initial bite, but the lower numbered product line is likely along the line of better initial bite at cool temps. The only pads that had noticeable squeal was the XP20 and XP24. Currently I am using the Hawk DTC-60 front and Carbotech RP-2 on the rear. I have only been out at Gimli once over the last few years, and have had no braking issues while running a best in the 1:03. I am curious as to your feedback on your experience of the DTC-70? Thanks.....Allen

  21. For some unknown reason, there was no notification (that I can see) letting us know that the new Aficinado was published. I just had the opportunity to read it right now here at the forum, and I am just blown away! I know that I keep saying that the latest edition is the best one ever, but prove me wrong! Read the newest example, and tell me that you are not mesmerized by the information about Ice Racing, IceX and the summary of our Awards Ceremony! And when you got through this, you are will be faced by one of the best pieces ever: an interview with Frank Mancini, member #4 of the Winnipeg Sports Car Club! Anybody in attendance during the 2021 Award Ceremony realized the fine humour Frank is harnessing, and the Aficinado's interview showcases this in a very entertaining way! I want to commend Mia and Brad on this -once again!- best Aficinado ever!
