Is there access to cone count data to compare Sept and Dec events, as they had the highest RPH? December had a high cone count which further slowed the run pace.


Burning the midnight oil, but its Hanukkah, so for some reason one day of oil is lasting eight. lol

Re: Membership Poll...How long is too long?

Re: Membership Poll...How long is too long?

What is the deal with the last poll option?: From my understanding, we generally cut runs to 3 when we have very high turnout. My understanding is rules for the half day format would be no different. Can you please share the math that shows how we would need to reduce to 3 runs with the December fo...

Re: Membership Poll...How long is too long?

Let's ask if and how many people want to even take advantage of "fun runs", or was this taken on as an additional reward for a 13 event season? Randy has been trying to do fun runs any time he can which I think was Oct, Nov, and of course Dec. For December that question was also included ...

Re: Event Format, going forward.

Well we no longer use only 600 numbers for new people as they are free to choose any number. But I thought we had added something about instructors being able to take an average for any event they instruct for the first group, limited to up to 3 events per year. That way they can still collect point...

Re: Membership Poll...How long is too long?

Those that responded to our polling were generally positive about the new format. Decsurvey.jpg Looking at the past three January events, we had 175, 180, and 175 actually run, an average of 177 entrants. As you can see, this is 60 more entries or 50% more. We have no reason to believe this will no...

Re: 2017 Event Run Time Statistics

Nice work Anthony. However, including change over in RPH distorts the info for me. I'd rather see the change over time separately, even if it's just a total for AM and PM. I think that is what is there. Total Run time from start to last car before lunch / number of runs taken = AM RPH Total Run tim...

Great data! Is there access to cone count data to compare Sept and Dec events, as they had the highest RPH? December had a high cone count which further slowed the run pace.

I just got bounced out of registering for the December event..... and now I am having to use my wife's card. :crazy: Thank you for bringing this to someone's attention. Was this current issue with the Sunday or Saturday event? I'll bring it to motorsportreg's attention and post their response here.

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

It sounds like we need to start with a minimum of one person in the trailer who can act as a master radio/announcer to all those on course and in grid along with a starter who can work in conjunction with them to send cars. At minimum then we'd need about 6 workers which should be doable as long as...

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...
