  1. Last week
  2. The WCMA/WSCC system for time attack number reservations is not working. I have #11 reserved with WCMA for 2024 time attack competition and this is what I'm presented with when I try to register:
  3. The more I get to know about sports cars the more impressed I am with the Corvette. Its performance for the cost is stunning (even though it will still cost you for sure). I've been watching MECUM Indianapolis Auction the last few days. Amazing Corvettes going for the $40K too $50K USD range.
  4. You aren't wrong, and many of our classing systems are based off this ratio. It is a goal of mine to get my RX8 below 6lbs/hp while keeping the creature comforts. Why below 6? I'm trying to match the performance of a C6 Corvette ZR1! The RX8 has statistically equal wheelbase, height and width and sports a similar drivetrain. The ZR1 is only car that has left a lasting impression on me over the laundry list of vehicles I've piloted around Gimli and other tracks. With skyrocketing re-sale prices, i may never be able to have one of my own, but maybe i can get close! haha
  5. That's what we call the cyclists who spend thousands on their road bikes trying to skim grams of weight off of frames that are already light as a feather. Being relatively new to motorsport, I found it curious that the same obsession happens even when high horsepower is available. I got curious how my vehicles compare in weight per horsepower (based on OEM stats). I don't know what performance difference this really makes but I found it interesting. The top two vehicles are mine... · 7.7 lb/hp (2006 Solstice Mallet LS2V8, 400HP) · 9.0 lb/hp (2019 Golf R Stage 1 APR, 375HP) · 8.9 lb/hp (2015 Audi RS5) · 7.1 lb/hp (2015 Audi R8 V10) · 9.7 lb/hp (2016 BMW i8) · 7.2 lb/hp (2016 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 1LT) · 11.0 lb/hp (2015 Dodge Challenger R/T) · 5.8 lb/hp (2015 Ferrari 458 Italia) · 8.5 lb/hp (2016 Ford Mustang GT) · 12.1 lb/hp (2009 Honda S2000) · 5.6 lb/hp (2014 Lamborghini Gallardo LP-560 AWD) · 8.5 lb/hp (2016 Lexus RC-F) · 10.5 lb/hp (2011 Lotus Elise Base) · 15.0 lb/hp (2016 Mazda MX-5 …Miata) · 14.7 lb/hp (2016 Mini Cooper S) · 7.2 lb/hp (2016 Nissan GT-R) · 7.7 lb/hp (2016 Porsche Carrera S) · 6.3 lb/hp (2016 Porsche Carrera Turbo S) · 6.3 lb/hp (2016 Porsche GT3 RS) · 7.7 lb/hp (2016 Porsche Cayman GT4) · 10.0 lb/hp (2016 Tesla Model S P90D AWD, 463hp)
  6. Hello, Below is the public link for all of my photos for this season at Auto X. Event #1 is live! I will try to be at as many events as possible this year to provide high quality images for the group. As always, its great meeting new people at events. I drive the little Grey - RHD NC1 Miata so please say hi if you would like. All images are free for use. I do it for the club! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1rErX5m95ubzWJ-RwiZR2Ai693aDBQCsl?usp=sharing -Alex.
  7. Because this is where Time Attack (and Road Racing) keep their car number library. WSCC does not keep separate records of who has what number - Autoslalom is really the odd man out here. Ice Racing is keeping yet again their own separate set of car numbers - I hope that those discipline directors will come around eventually to make it easier for our racers. Advantage of doing it through WCMA is that during the registration process your car and car number are filled in automatically. I understand (never tried it) that WMCA will automatically check whether the number you want is already taken and will not let you take it. If everybody registers their car numbers with WCMA, then there won't be any of those annoying, time-consuming instances where two people have registered with the same number and are now arguing who should get that number, as both parties had already signs with that number made.
  8. Our first two Time Attack events will happen on May 25th and May 26th! Sign up and take your place on the starting grid. This promises to be an exciting season again! WSCC 2024 Season Opener (motorsportreg.com) Just a quick reminder: Reserve your number with WCMA (WCMA 2024 Car Classing & Number Reservation (motorsportreg.com) ) so that you don't try to register with a number that has been taken already. Furthermore, you must submit a current 2024 Car Classing Schedule to secretary@wscc.mb.ca. to obtain that one, go to https://ccdb.casc.on.ca/ and register yourself. go through the base car list, then select the modification you have on your car. If your car is not in the base list, click on the link where you can submit the request to add your car to the list. At the end, save without sending it to the OTA. Instead, save the pdf file and send it to Brian at the email address above. If your classification sheet is not available by the time you finish your registration, you will be classified in Extreme for the duration of the event.
  9. Why do we need to have our time attack numbers registered with WCMA? It seems silly to have to register Time attack numbers with them and all the others are WSCC.
  10. The problem here is that the drivers need to register their Time Attack number with WCMA, but the Autoslalom numbers are tracked only within our club. You can't assume that you can use the same number in both disciplines, because one person may have reserved that number already for a discipline. Therefore, that desired number is available for discipline A, but not available for discipline B. If you want to keep your number across both disciplines, you need to pick a number that hasn't been already taken in either discipline. Record that number with WCMA for Time Attack, and with the Autoslalom guys here in the club.
  11. Thanks for the follow-up. Hope you get the gremlins! Actually, I'd love to see an AMC Gremlin (401-XR!) on the track sometime, they were fairly wide stance and might even handle well. But it's only old geezers like me who even remember odd rides like that.
  12. @Ron Janzen, I hope you don't mind me editing the title of this discussion. I removed "classing" from the title so we don't duplicate information with an existing sub-forum dedicated to Time Attack classing issues. Getting back to your difficulty selecting your number from the MSR registration page, I think this is the same problem we had last year. Apparently the WCMA reserved number database is not properly sync'd with MSR reserved number pool. It's not an easy fix from what I understand. I suppose we'll have to live with this gremlin for another year, not unlike registering for Time Attack Saturday only and not being able to rent a transponder or even select Time Attack as your group. That's why you will see the Saturday-only entries shown as Closed Wheel.
  13. The link goes to the MSR registration for both Time Attack and Road Racing for our Season Opener weekend. Both disciplines are in the same MSR event. http://msreg.com/wscc2024opener So far: 6 T/A on Saturday, 4 T/A on Sunday and 6 Road Racers.....come on people start signing up! Lol.
  14. Sorry Mike, but something went wrong here! The registration page for Time Attack was already open, and three or four people have already paid and are registered. There should not be one link for both disciplines.
  15. Hi Everyone, Our regular club meeting is this coming Thursday at the Caboto center. Zoom is available as usual if you can't make it in person. Our in person attendance has increased at each meeting. Great to see everyone and chat in person as well as virtually.

Hope to see everyone in person or on the zoom call. WSCC Zoom Host is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

  16. Hmmm, more puzzling. That's not what I got when I registed for time attack. I'll try editing my registration and see if that pull down comes up.
  17. Yeah, looks like you were dealing with this issue back in March, but it appears that you are assigned #64. Not unless there is another Ron J.
  18. Not sure what happened when I did this because it appears the number I reserved (64) is taken and the number I was told is not available (59) is now unassigned. In the meantime, I ordered new signs and won't be able to use them. Sigh...
  19. Registration is open for the WSCC 2024 Season Opener for May 24-26 at the Gimli Motorsport Park! May 24 - HPDE Track Day http://msreg.com/wscc-2024-hpde2 May 25 & 26 - Time Attack & Road Racing http://msreg.com/wscc2024opener Sign up now!
