  2. After COVID19 ruined our plans for a High Speed Driving Experience and Licensing School in May 2020, we are optimistically planning for a great 2021 season. Knowing how much people are looking forward to this event, we set the date for May 1st and 2nd of 2021. Expect to see some minor changes to the layout of the event, yet it will be again a highly anticipated weekend for participants and volunteers alike! Watch motorsportreg.com after New Year for the opportunity to sign up. The HPDE / Licensing School traditionally has sold out rather quickly.in the past few years - signing up early helps to attain one of those coveted spots in the event! Please stay tuned for more information! Meanwhile, let all your friends and acquaintances know that very soon it is time to get enrolled!

  4. Greetings all, here's an update on some of the key changes we are planning for this year's ice racing. Caged car class - due to the low number of caged cars running door to door we are proposing running a single "studded" class of cars. This class would be expected to run either Black Rocket tires or a new spec bolted tire design. So far it looks like about 7-9 cars are expected to compete in this class (with hopefully a couple more deciding to jump in as well). Hotlapping - we plan on running RTI cars and cageless cars in between the studded races similiar to how the Time Attack groups run with the Sedan Racing during our summer season. We are excited about creating this new "Ice Attack" group and hope it entices many newcomers. Spec Studded Tire - we are looking at making a bulk purchase order of hardware (bolts/washers) and tires. We are still determining the tire however using a spec tire will keep everything consistent since the club doesn't own a tire shaving machine. Estimates for the tires and hardware look to be around $500 for a set of 4. Time is running out on this so please notify me asap at either mikedemchenko@yahoo.com or through the Ice Director email on our website with any questions you have and what size of tires you run (13, 14 or 15") Events - with Covid and the impact to the Winter Festivals we are looking at pulling back on some of the out of town races to help with the budget. We are looking at potential races at both the Winnipeg Ski Pond (Lake Shirley) and Beausejour (CPTC snowmobile track) and likely a double header race weekend at these locations to help with the budget. There is one special event race weekend that is being explored that will also hopefully also be a huge step forward (and a surprise to many if we can make it happen). More details of that will come out shortly. As well, we are strategizing how to deliver some form of an ice school in this crazy covid world we are now living in. Next steps include finalizing all the above info hopefully within the next couple weeks so we can submit a budget to our club executives and hopefully proceed with ordering tires and acquiring permits. A draft of the event schedule will be shared soon once it is sorted out. Please feel free to reply and leave feedback within this post or if you prefer to direct questions and feedback directly to me please do so as well. Regards, Mike WSCC Ice Race Director

  5. As we all know, 2020 was a hugely challenging year. Due to the changing rules surrounding COVID, our volunteers and racers had no idea what to expect from week to week. In 2020, our initial meeting after group sizes were increased to 50 people occurred on a Sunday and the volunteer team committed to launching the season the next Saturday! This is unprecedented! It usually takes a month or more to plan, test and confirm all systems are good to go. The team this year did all of that preparation work in 6 days! I have no words for that other than WOW, and thank you! As the season progressed, things got easier and ran fairly smoothly. We had some challenges, but all competitors took that in stride. Heck, we even had our first event in years with no official results and there were no angry complaints! To the competitors from all of us volunteers: Thank you for your patience! Every WSCC member and attendee had an impact in making this 2020 Autox season a positive experience. We all experienced adversity this year, but our time at St Andrews brought a refreshing positivity and a lets-go-racing distraction for us all. For this, we thank all of you. Cheers to a more predictable 2021? No matter what next year brings, we know we will enjoy our time to make some noise! Have a great off season, everybody!
