Re: Tires... what happened to them? Does it mean anything? What next?

That's mostly what's referred to as OPR - Other Peoples Rubber! Your tire wear looks pretty even to me. One of the other Vette people will have to chime in on expected tire life, but two or three events sounds low, although there is a big difference between 12+ runs at a practice and 4 on Sunday. Dr...

Re: When do Juniors run on Sunday?

From my stand point it seemed to work out fine. The time for course walk after the cars run gives time for everyone wanting in the free fun runs to get to grid and have their driver meeting.

Re: VR Video From Today

That is super cool. And once I figured out to move the camera view opposite of the up coming turn I could look ahead like I was driving. Seeing that before you ran could be a real help! ;)

Yes, thank you Lauren for the effort! The new site is on a different server. This means that if you don't see the new site automatically, the new site information may not have propagated to your ISP yet. It could take up to 72 hours.

Re: December Events Open for Registration - New Format for Sunday Championship

I agree Neelu, not all the positions may be needed. But this last weekend you were dealing with only a few cars and I believe all experienced drivers. In December it's likely there will be many more since we are pulling from the entire pool of entries and it will be earlier in the day. So instead of...

Re: December Events Open for Registration - New Format for Sunday Championship

I don't know anyone under the age of 16 who doesn't have a debit card Craig. I don't see how this would be an issue at all. It's not about whether you have a credit/debit card, it's whether you want to use it, for whatever reason. 17 people paid with cash today, with only about 100 entries, and all...

Re: December Events Open for Registration - New Format for Sunday Championship

Run/Work Order. Whether there is a lunch break or not will depend on when we actually finish the competition run groups and how many sign up for fun runs. Note there is a break between running and working, the intention being to be able to swap workers on the fly.

Re: December Events Open for Registration - New Format for Sunday Championship

(fun runs are contingent upon a minimum of 10 people participating) I hope that's 10 per group, otherwise there would not be enough workers. I realize as "fun runs" we don't need as many, but 5 wouldn't cut it, 10 is half what we usually have as a minimum. These are fun runs, we can cover...

Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

If I'm not mistaken, for what it's worth, with effectively only 2 clubs that have real voting impact, only one club has to be present and vote and a motion will carry. Nobody else will have any input if the opportunity is missed. In a way, there is already an imbalance of power. It would seem that ...
