SASC Events / Re: July 2 - YYC event - this coming Sunday.

you can go pace it out at your nearby mall and tell me if it's tight lol

Working on some details with Reijo for his take on this. I might move the starting elements to the left(south). It was there because I remember the pavement wasn't in the best of condition...but we'll see.

Looks very long and definitely challenging, looking forward to it.

Well done Cam & Ryan!

Does anyone have any pictures from the weekend? I'll try to get an article up on the home page.

Thanks Chris.

I seem to also remember that we had just too many events at YYC ... re:  Your manageable comment ... but we also wanted to use the venue as much as we could, while we could.  They mean to develop the property eventually so that is a concern.

The two day regional does not count towards the SASC/CSCC Joint Championship, it is a standalone two day event just like the August 12/13th Challenge event. There are 4 championship events at Fort Macleod, 4 at YYC and 5 at Westerner. I believe that we've achieved a good balance.

Registration just opened for the solo tour in Packwood, WA July 7-9   :D

Who's all going? I know Ryan, Cam and Chris are.

SASC Events / Re: How does SASC define novice eligibility?

I agree with what Stuart said completely.

If you've done one or two events a year for say three years I think calling yourself a novice in year four is still reasonable.

How did the 2-driver cars find that to work with?  Hurried?  OK?  Otherwise?  Can someone speak up about this?

In the morning it was definitely rushed but in the afternoon (with the novices joining the run groups) Ken and I had just enough time to check pressures have a quick chat and get buckled in before we were called up again.

How about that?  The theory (calculations) properly predicted the results ... e.g. it is very rushed in the pits.

Before this weekend I had not thought about the resultant rush in grid if we do not have enough cars and if we send out cars close together.  Learn something new every day, huh?!   :)

As a side note and for future reference, we had previously determined the cut-off for two or three run groups on whether we had enough people to man all the stations.  Apparently at YYC, the criteria should be time between runs!  At FM, of course, the game is different with less entries and more time between runs due to the overlap that we have to live with.  However there is a bit of a time saver in that we have a few less change-overs during the day ... e.g. 2 heats vs. 3 heats.....4 vs. 6

So it seems that we have been running heats that are too small!  Who'da thunk?

Therefore it looks like it is best to keep 2 heats unless we are over 100 drivers or so.

I do like the idea of 3 heats since we do not take a lunch break then but I think that is a worthwhile sacrifice.  It would be more do-able if we had a lunch truck on-site ... I know we were looking into that but it was too much money but there may have been others we did not look at or were about to ...


Since it came up I just want to repeat concern about bringing a food truck on site - throughput.

In my experience food trucks feed about 1 person per minute at a cost of ~$10 per person.  With 40 people in a run group and an assumption that it takes 15 minutes to eat lunch after you receive your food that means you need 55 minutes to get all of the competitors fed plus any extra time caused by spectators lining up at the food truck.  In my opinion this time could only be shortened by bringing out more food trucks or reducing the number of people patronizing the food truck, both of which would likely bring the revenue per truck below the minimum amount they required to come out for the day.

Wayne looked into food trucks and it was very cost prohibitive iirc they wanted quite a large sum of money upfront just to show up. I know Richard was looking into a different food truck to see if their costs were more reasonable.

I think Chris said he's got 4 cars lined up now, so we should be good for cars.

I can help man the booth that day also Chris!
