Other Events / 2017 Speedway Automotive SCCA Solo Nationals video
« on: November 07, 2017, 05:56:16 PM »
Speedway just came out with this year's video from the SCCA Solo Nationals.  They did more of a documentary type of approach ... I think it is pretty good:

Other Events / SCCA National Convention - Jan. 18-20, Las Vegas, NV
« on: November 06, 2017, 04:15:29 PM »
Would anyone be interested in this?

https://www.scca.com/articles/2008458-registration-open-for-2018-scca-national-convention

Lots of good workshops etc.

I think the WCMA/ASN has some incentives ($) for this.  I will check into this.

I have been thinking of going to this for a couple of years now ... something to learn and help to develop our solo program even further.

Lots of flights from here directly to Vegas .... or about 15 hours driving time.

Other Events / FM - LSCC - this weekend - Oct. 7/8
« on: October 03, 2017, 09:20:38 AM »
The LSCC started hosting events at Fort Macleod again this year and I attended both of the first two and they were good events with great courses.

So if you want to get in a couple of extra days of tire wear, this is a good opportunity.   Forecast right now is +12C and sunny for both days ... a bit cooler (below avg) but my experience is that the forecast is a bit conservative and a sunny day will probably produce higher temps than that down there ... very dry and easily heated air.

SASC Events / LSCC event tomorrow (Saturday)
« on: September 22, 2017, 10:34:14 PM »
Sounding like there is hardly anyone attending?   3 I know of.

Want some serious, serious seat time?

Get your butt down there for tomorrow!   Good thing it isn't going to be too hot .... so the tires won't fry entirely!   hahahaha

I'm heading down in the morning.
