Solo Race Day Checklist

Handy checklist for what you need on race day! This document was originally handed out to me during the 2006 CalClub Novice School.

Dunno, but two of the guys I've helped out these past few months were ahead of me in PAX at the last event - one in my own class! :o

You don't *need* one. Just time-wasters, really.

lol, that's definitely my excuse as my '04 is the heaviest of the NBs.

Re: How do you determine if a Miata has the Sport package?

If you have the VIN #, you can call Mazda directly to find out what options the car had originally. Not 100% reliable from what I've heard, though.

PAX index and how it's applied to final results

CalClub Solo2 results for Novice, SK1, SK2, HST (on 140+ treadwear tires), and PAX are all based on the annually-updated PAX index, a study of results from Solo2 events from around the nation. It is a theoretical index to show how the same driver would perform in the cars from the various classes wi...

Re: Went to my first event and it was great

Hi Alan,

Glad to hear you had a good time and will be coming out again in June. As far as pushing through the turns: brake earlier! You've got to slow down to make those turns.

Was it you that was asking me how the Novice class was scored at the end of the day?

Re: Novice Coordinator

I like how a thread originally started about me ends up being about Ron. Typical CalClub thread drift. :D

Thanks for the compliments, they're much appreciated. :thumbup:

Re: 05/25/08 Casoc Event (results are up)

Lil bro ran 69 in fun runs! Does that count for something? I'm pretty proud of him. Don't know that I agree that practices are ruining autocross, though. They still helped me a lot. I find practices good for test-n-tune when you've installed something new or changed settings - also, if you're worki...
