Re: 2019 Schedule

The Porsche is using El Toro and is running over a hundred cars, about what we are running now. Can we look at booking some dates this year? POC is supposedly only doing one more event before moving to long beach. A few things have led to our decision not to use el toro. 1) An increase of $3000 ove...

Re: Newcomer here, please help!

1) Can you post a photo of the crack? 2) there is a class called, "California Street Touring" (CST) and is a catch-all class for cars with 200tw tires. It's a great place to start and from there you can learn more about the sport and which class sounds like fun. For national level classing you would...

I’m new to this. What class would I be if I got a ,13 Ford Focus st, stage 3 with E30 tune and lower sprints ?

Thanks
Depends. I reccommend California street touring and some hand shakes with fellow competitors, it's easier when the car is there when they are modified.

Re: How a course takes shape

Well done Anthony. I assume you design for Sunday, then make adjustments to make it work for Saturday. Most of us will start with an idea for Sunday in mind and then will re-tool the start/finish sectors. If your design has good flow, then it should work well enough in reverse with simple visual ch...

Re: Would you like to instruct as your work assignment? - 3/3

This position also allows you to take your AVERAGE from your yearly points. You dont need to lose class/pax points to instruct!

This allowance however can only be used once per year per instructor.

A few comments about the process. 1) The start was changed significantly between the paper design and the photoshopped one becuase after evaluating the safety distances I needed to eliminate the sweeper for something narrower. 2) the finish had to be changed significantly as well, but this change wa...

How a course takes shape

I hope this post inspires more people to create a course design. Even if you are unable to setup your course due to work, getting one down on paper could still help increase the variety and styles offered by our region Attached is the progression from a line on paper to a full course. My goals were ...

Re: Minter Airfield with Fresno SCCA

I haven't got any official word yet, but I think the Fresno event might be cancelled. For clarity's sake, the break-even point would have been about 75 people. Could be possible to do 4 timed runs, then 8 practice runs, with a practice price at 85 a person. I dont know the costs but generally with ...

Has anyone contacted Kern County Raceway Part? The whole infield of the oval is paved. The area might be a bit small, I count 26 semi truck parking spots on the short side.

Re: Post Car Classing Help Questions Here!

Is there a benefit for choosing one or the other (STR vs CST), I'm assuming you can only be part of one? You can compete in one per race, but it's best to choose to compete in the same class for the year typically. As the year goes on more competitors meet each and often offer help in a myriad of w...
