  2. WSCC 2023 Race Supplementary Regulations - Ver 2.1.docx
  3. Revised Schedule - June
  4. Schedule revised - April 28th
  5. To hopefully entice some door to door race drivers, Scott and I have introduced some promotional pricing for the 2023 season. Our numbers are dwindling for reasons we are all too familiar with. This is our incentive to try and motivate some of you to bring out your cars for an extra event or two! Season Opener May 26 - 28th $200 Entry Fee ——————————— Road Race Entry Fee Promotion Starting June 9th 2023 First race $300 Second race $200 Third race $100 Fourth race FREE *The first event of the year is $200 for everyone and does not count towards the promotion. *All entry fees are per driver and non transferable. **Promo begins in June A drivers "first event" is $300. If that same driver registers for a second race their entry fee will be $200 and so on. Please help spread the word!
  6. OTA MOD 2 & 3 = WSCC MOD OTA MOD 1 = EXTREME Thoughts?
  7. INTRODUCTION The WSCC Time Attack Classing/PAX system is under review and has been subject to open discussion on the Forum. As a result of this discussion and unofficial poll results, we have concluded that all organizations, including SCCA, OTA, GridLife and others come with pros and cons in their respective classing structure. The one organization, in our opinion, that comes closest to meeting our goals and provides the best fit for our Club is the OTA ruleset. We recognize the perceived issues with using PAX modifiers and, as such, will not be using the PAX modifiers for any classes other than Rookie. CLASSING The following six classes are being proposed for the 2023 season: 1. Extreme 2. Modified (Mod) 3. Super Grand Touring (SGT) 4. Grand Touring (GT) 5. Touring 6. Rookie EXTREME This class is intended for those that want to build a “track beast” and challenge the fastest lap record put down at GMP (presently 58.962). All safety requirements per governing body regulations must be met, otherwise there are no restrictions to modifications. MODIFIED (MOD) This class combines the existing OTA sub-classes of Open Mod, Mod 1, Mod 2, and Mod 3 into a single class. The Performance Index Points (PIP) ranges from 95.0 to 129.9points. SUPER GRAND TOURING (SGT) This class combines the existing OTA sub-classes of SGT1, SGT2, and SGT3 into a single class. The Performance Index Points (PIP) ranges from 80.0 to 94.9 points. GRAND TOURING (GT) This class combines the existing OTA sub-classes of GT1, GT2, GT3, and GT4 into a single class. The Performance Index Points (PIP) ranges from 60.0 to 79.9points. TOURING This class combines the existing OTA sub-classes of T1, T2, and T3 into a single class. The Performance Index Points (PIP) ranges from 40.0 to 59.9points. ROOKIE This class has been established to encourage participation from recent graduates of the Competition Licensing School. The emphasis is being placed on driver skills improvement. The following guidelines apply: • A rookie is defined as a participant who has entered 10 or less events. A participant may retain rookie status over two or more years until they have participated in 10 events. NOTE: Participation in a single event is defined as having completed one or more laps in a single session and is not dependent on having completed all scheduled sessions forthat day. • In order to compete in the Rookie Championship, the participant will be required to class their car in accordance with the Ontario Time Attack (OTA) classification system. • A PAX factor will be applied to each class/sub-class to neutralize/handicap any performance advantage of a specific car. This will modify the raw lap time with an adjusted lap time that will isolate the driver as the basis on which to judge performance. CLASSING PROCESS As with our existing classing system, it will be necessary to class your car using the OTA classing system. This system usesa base starting point for a stock vehicle and then addsPerformance Index Points (PIP’s) for any modifications to arrive at a final number that will determine your class. WSCC class break points are as follows: EXTREME – no requirement to submit a classing schedule but would typically be a vehicle with 130 or more performance index points. MODIFIED (MOD) – 95.0 to 129.9 points SUPER GRAND TOURING (SGT) - 80.0 to 94.9 points GRAND TOURING (GT) - 60.0 to 79.9 points TOURING - 40.0 to 59.9 points ROOKIE – this class will utilize the full spectrum of classing (14 separate classes ranging from T3 to MOD 1) offered by OTA and then use the PAX modifier for that specific class as follows: CLASS PAX FACTOR MOD 1 1.052 MOD 2 1.012 MOD3 1.000 SGT1 0.988 SGT2 0.976 SGT3 0.964 GT1 0.952 GT2 0.940 GT3 0.928 GT4 0.916 T1 0.904 T2 0.892 T3 0.880 CLASSING STRATEGY It will be incumbent on the individual to assess the modifications on their car and the resultant class under which it falls. Each class has a range varying from 15 to 30 points, depending on the class and it will be important to position yourself in the upper end of the class to be competitive. Conversely, it may be more economical to de-modify your car so that it moves into the upper range of the lower class. Let’s use the example of a lightly modified vehicle with a performance index of 63.0 points. This would place the car in the lower range of the GT class (60.0 to 79.9 points) and invariably make it difficult to compete with the cars in the higher range of the GT class. Two choices are apparent. You could throw on a lot more performance modifications, while still remaining within the class limit and become seriouslycompetitive, albeit at a cost. The other choice would be to remove a modification that was worth 3 PIP’s and drop into the upper range of the Touring class and become highly competitive in that class.
  8. So it’s been one week since our TA meeting. I’d like to hear some feedback and get a sentiment check after everyone has had some time to digest the info.
  9. EXTREME This class is intended for those that want to build a “track beast” and challenge the fastest lap record put down at GMP (presently 58.962). The Performance Index Points (PIP) range is equal to or greater than 130.0 points. All safety requirements per governing body regulations must be met, otherwise there are no restrictions to modifications. The EXTREME class was formerly known as TA-RAW. The EXTREME class will also serve as the default class for those participants who have chosen not to class their car through the OTA car classification system. MODIFIED (MOD) This class combines the existing OTA sub-classes of Open Mod, Mod 1, Mod 2, and Mod 3 into a single class. The Performance Index Points (PIP) ranges from 95.0 to 129.9 points. SUPER GRAND TOURING (SGT) This class combines the existing OTA sub-classes of SGT1, SGT2, and SGT3 into a single class. The Performance Index Points (PIP) ranges from 80.0 to 94.9 points. GRAND TOURING (GT) This class combines the existing OTA sub-classes of GT1, GT2, GT3, and GT4 into a single class. The Performance Index Points (PIP) ranges from 60.0 to 79.9 points. TOURING This class combines the existing OTA sub-classes of T1, T2, and T3 into a single class. The Performance Index Points (PIP) ranges from 40.0 to 59.9 points. ROOKIE This class has been established to encourage participation from recent graduates of the Competition Licensing School. The emphasis is being placed on driver skills improvement. The following guidelines apply: • A rookie is defined as a participant who has entered 8 or less events. A participant may retain rookie status for no more than two years or until such time they have participated in 8 events, whichever occurs first. NOTE: Participation in a single event is defined as having completed one or more laps in a single session and is not dependent on having completed all scheduled sessions for that day. • In order to compete in the Rookie Championship, the participant will be required to class their car in accordance with the Ontario Time Attack (OTA) classification system. • A PAX factor will be applied to each class/sub-class to neutralize/handicap any performance advantage of a specific car. This will modify the raw lap time with an adjusted lap time that will isolate the driver as the basis on which to judge performance.

I look forward to elaborating on why we decided that the “merged classing” OTA ruleset was the best fit for TA at GMP. Special thanks to @donrolandofurioso @Ianfromduff @Weebly for their time and effort on this.
  12. I’m going to thank @Weebly in advance for helping create this document. I think we’ve come full circle with our plan for next season. TA really is the new headlining discipline at GMP. I’m looking forward to a multi-championship TA grid in 2023.
