SASC Events / Re: June 17, 2017 WCMA regional scores
« on: June 18, 2017, 07:28:35 AM »
Also, 69 of the 75 drivers are listed as rookies. :)

Does it count if I felt like a rookie out there?

Looks like your number wasn't reserved in MSR, and someone else got to it before you did.

I guess you will have to add another piece of tape on each side :)

My tape budget just went up by 50%!! Unacceptable!


But seriously, it's no problem at all.  I was just confused because the top drop-down had my number as if it were reserved but then it assigned me 111 and was just drawing a big white rectangle instead of letting me pick a new number so I couldn't see what had happened.  I figured MSR was just being broken or something.

The MSR registration page is being weird for me... It lists my focus as #11 in the top drop-down but then assigns me the number 111 and when I try to open the dropdown to fix it I just get a blank white box.

Murray - the June 10 scores seem to be missing the driver data, or something.  I think I forgot to give that to you because it's not in the event data folder (although I thought it took a copy when I generated the score files?).  Do you need me to send anything across to you?

Missed a good day ( I got there late after a job so just watched)
Was neat to see the rain runs forsure!!!
Well looks like sun tomorrow so should be a good day!!
Did you guys run your track tires today? Or a differnt set?

Just looked out my hotel window... yeay the toad and turtle within walking distance!!!!  ;D ;D ;D

I was on RE-71Rs today and somehow they didn't totally suck.  I had a LOT of trouble braking in a straight line but if I could get some weight on the front and the car starting to turn they seemed to cut through the water and stick fantastically.  It led to some very poor technique (light stab of the brake, turn in then tail brake) which caused about 400 spins or near-spins but got me around the track in a hurry.  I'm glad the pavement was so slippery so it keeps the tire wear under control.

Hopefully the lakes in the parking lot dry by tomorrow!

Hey guys so I registered for June 10th with my Mazda 3, figured a practice event is the most practical for me to shake off the dust and rust in my driving performance.  One problem, I do not own a printer, would it be possible for someone to bring a couple extra self tech forms and I will keep them in a binder in my car for future events?

I try not to advertise this but I bring 50 empty ones to each event - don't worry, just ask for one at registration :)

Drat, I really wanted to run my Mazda at this event but I just noticed the no passengers rule so perhaps I am better off going to Red Deer this coming weekend instead.  I suppose a practice at Red Deer would be beneficial to knock off some of the rust and dust in my performance as a driver since I have not been running for several years.

SASC Events / Re: YYC - WCMA Regional - Count as series Event?

If there's room for opinions on this I would suggest that we do count June 17/18 into the joint championship, but I'm not so sure about other WCMA events.  I feel like with prize money and bragging rights on the line in the WCMA series the people who would be interested are already motivated to get around to other cities to run there.  Since only CSCC/SASC members are eligible for the championship I'm not sure if it actually matters very much?

Last year when we hosted a WCMA regional we scored the first 3 runs for the regional then the best morning + best afternoon in the joint championship series.

Well 4 events, always dual drivers, plus 5000 km of daily driving too as I couldn't get my other wheels for a few weeks and I drive a lot and my driving is pretty much foot near floor most places and dont slow for corners if dont need too lol

4 events x 2 drivers x 7(?) runs per event = 56 runs total. 

That's a short life for a tire.  I try to get 100-125 runs plus about 4000-5000km of street driving per set on my focus.  I manage tire wear by flipping the tires so I can eat up the other shoulder and rotating them to the back once both shoulders are gone.  That gives me 2 ways to use each tire on the front, so 4 shoulders to chew up.  If I can keep my greedy corner entry under control that has previously yielded me as many as 150 runs on a set of tires but last year I delayed flipping the tires and shredded the outside shoulder down to the creamy nougat filling in only 40 runs on a pair of brand new R-S3s.

He was running in Montana at Great Falls this past weekend - 2 day event.  Could be on the road today back to Calgary ... long weekend down south - Memorial Day.

It was a 3 day event -- we just got back from the bar.  We will be heading home tomorrow.

Send e the result data, and I will updte things sometime tomorrow.

I'm just waiting a couple days for any changes to come in before I finalize them and I'll send them over at that time if this works for you?  Rather than sending them to you over and over.

I don't think you cut them on anything - my R-S3s and Rivals both started ripping off the same way when they reached the end of their life.  I think that's usually caused when you massively overcook a corner and go skidding sideways on them (as I often do) trying to drag the car back to the line you want.

He would probably be more forthcoming if I sent him the score files.... :D

I'll try to get those off to him tonight.  I knew I was forgetting something last night.  A long day in the sun left me tired and without... brain... skills....

Direct link here:

I always hide that url behind a URL tag to see if anybody notices the domain name ;)

Also, I should mention in case the owners of these cars are members on this forum:
The white camaro and the black camaro would almost certainly be over the noise limit at YYC.  If you are thinking of bringing your cars to events there please be prepared with a solution to reduce the noise level of your exhaust.

Thanks for the clarification, I just thought you used Karelo for registration of events sorry my mistake.

I finally got around to it - you can register for our first Westerner Park event here!

As I haven't put together one of these event pages in many months please let me know if you spot something that is messed up.

For the Westerner Park events we handle registrations through motorsportreg just like the SASC but you'll have to search for CSCC instead :)

I've had a few things come up in my life recently that have been tying up my evenings and weekends but I'm hoping to get the event pages put together for the entire season near the end of this week.

I'm not completely sure I understand the second half of your question but basically fill out the registration form on MSR and bring proof of membership (card or letter) to the event so the person running registration can verify your membership status.
