ProSolo T-Shirt

As usual, I'm doing the design at the last minute. Struggling with it, got it down to two, but can't decide, which do you prefer, left or right? Right side is a ripoff of the AutoClub Speedway logo. I'm leaning toward the left one, just can't make up my mind. (Only opinions provided in the next hour...

Re: Post Car Classing Help Questions Here!

Hello. I'm new to this forum and autocross. I pre-registered for the 14-15 Apr practice and Championship event, and I'm really looking forward to it. I had a question about what vehicle class I should have selected during registration. I will be driving a 2018 Camaro SS 1LE. On the '8 Easy Steps' p...

Maybe. I believe it's one of the items being discussed at tonight's board meeting.

Re: Whoo Hoo! The PRO Solo is Here!

Once both cars are staged, the Christmas tree light sequence is triggered (note: this is done manually by a guy sitting in a chair right there). Not exactly. Normally the lights are triggered automatically, after the countdown clock reaches zero and you hear a loud beep, it doesn't care if you are ...

Re: Whoo Hoo! The PRO Solo is Here!

There's a whole host of differences. - Tech (putting on the required stickers: tirerack, scca, etc) - assigned spot before the start (different for every session). - 4 runs (2 runs each side) each session - impound after your runs I think I'm forgetting some stuff but those are the ones that come t...

Sunday run order, had to do more than usual adjusting beyond just rotating groups, so several classes are in new groups.

We normally would run at El Toro then, but they will not commit that far out at this time.

Re: First auto cross this weekend

Saturday's are designed to be an all day event. You usually run/work once in the morning and once in the afternoon, with a lunch break. Sunday, in our current format, is designed to end around 1pm for the competition runs (earlier if you are in the 1st or 3rd run group). Then if you choose to stay f...

Re: 2018 Event Statistics

Thanks for that, Anthony. Interesting numbers. Don't shoot me, but the next logical step would be to find what sections those DNFs came from. I'm only curious from an SSS point of view. The changes I made were first and foremost for worker safety. But I wouldn't mind plugging holes elsewhere just t...

The course workers had called into timing about cars coming straight at them coming out of the chi box. I was just talking to Eric about a fix when you were on your way to fix it. I did see the issue with at a couple of cars. Either not looking ahead, not remembering or too new to realize the import...

I was actually volunteering to help with TNiA, not the autocross, but I'll go where I'm needed most. Don't want to leave Eric in a bind though.

Re: How to tell which group is running?

I believe we bought wireless speakers a couple years ago. Do those work? If we can extend the PA range another 150', it wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing. From my post on page 1 "We've tried wireless speakers and they were crap, nowhere near the claimed power. You really need something with ...

Re: How to tell which group is running?

I'd probably prefer an old school analog method. Autocross is my escape from technology, and because my phone hooks up to my car, I typically turn it off at events. A flag is very simple and only requires a glance towards the motorhome to answer the question. The only problem is making sure somebod...

Re: How to tell which group is running?

Since there is no break between run groups 2 and 3 it can appear to "blend" that might cause people to arrive late to work or grid to run. I can see it being a minor issue but would be nice to know while in paddock. I liked the PCA flag system when they remembered to change the flag color...
