Could use a clarification?
The last event is listed Nov30-Dec1 on the first post, but both MSR and the Google Calendar have it as Dec 7-8?
The Nov 30- dec 1st is our annual Cal Club school and Practice, not a points event.

It doesnt prevent you from earning champsionship points. A driver may take an average for a single event per year to coach in the first session.

I wonder how my factory air pump would stack up? Since I didn't get a spare with my Camaro, I got a can of tire sealant and an air compressor.
seems like you could deflate it and try for 35 psi, or however much it will do in 10 min, since they all seem to be able to handle that.

Thank you for a great August Course

Thank you, Christine, Tom, et al. For designing and setting up a very interesting and fun course.

I was especially fond of the long left before the pin turn right into the finish. Effective cone placement requiring looking well ahead to remain on line and at the proper aggression.

I'll add that lifting at the meter doesn't quiet your car for the remaining 99%+ of the course, so if your car actually *is* too loud you could easily be the guy getting us kicked out from the venue.

While not a sound violation, it would be an unsportsmanlike violation.

Howard....your Z06 won't be a problem. If your buddy's car is a problem, we'll do what we can to resolve the issue (but I can't imagine any Corvette being all that loud unless highly modified). The rules outlined here are inline with National level events, and they aren't typically kicking cars out...

The measurement will be taken at a point where the vehicle can reasonably be expected to be under load at full throttle. The measuring point will be 50 feet from the edge of the course using an ANSI Type 2 sound meter set to “A” weighting, “Slow” response. The microphone will be 3 to 4 feet above g...
