I'm interested in the novice/intermediate school - let me know the format and what we'll be working on.

Thanks, John

P.S.  if you could throw the small loaner helmet in for Sunday, I'll probably bring my middle daughter along to do some ride alongs

Let me know what time to meet at the storage lot tomorrow, I'm available for early set-up.

you'll need a winch to load up if the hooptie don't run.   That's the down side.

And a second guy to man the brakes just in case there's any slope opposite to the way you are winching (i.e. if you winch up onto the trailer, then the trailer is tilted towards your winching point once up on the trailer).

My run.....I left time all over the place!!!!  I'm sure I could of broken into the 79's.  Of interest, if Paul was doing 150 into the finish, I couldn't get to 100!!!!!

I definitely hit 100kph on the last run (or maybe two) -  the gear calculator at flyin miata says that my car should be at 59.8 mph when the rev limiter kicks in for 2nd gear and I was definitely hitting it as I came through the wall for each run during the day, so much so that I finally grabbed third on my 3rd morning run (and even grabbed third before the wall on my last run so I could continue to accelerate to the finish).  I'll never know how fast I really hit as there's no telemetry on my car.

You are welcome!

And, here's a courses map - course 1:  Slaloms R Us.   Course 2:  Sweepers Creepers!

Note that there is nothing sacred about the designs and we can change them on the fly .... or even tie them together by crossing over at the top (west) to make one big course.  Maybe at the end of the evening?

Nice, I have to skip this weeks' practice (taking my youngest camping) but am a very interested maybe for the second one, keep me posted on what time you'll be heading to the storage locker for the August practice as I can still come early to help with setup.

... also a long course took more runs to master ...

I'll say, I was just hitting my stride at run #5, and I figure by run 15 I would probably have been competitive (or at least have had the return at the far end of the runway figured out).

Thanks to the guys who let my daughter jump in, she had a blast.

Can I get you to make sure a small loaner helmet gets thrown in with the other gear going down to FM for the 23rd, that would be great - my daughter wants to come down and ride along for the day.  If you can't make it fit, let me know and I'll swing by to pick it up.  Thanks, John

Thanks - while I've watched a handful of autocross videos on the net, it was actually neat to watch one of these that I knew the course and the line.  I actually found myself looking ahead where I would have been looking yesterday (or at least where I should have been looking!).

Is there a way to see the sound readings? Car 193.  Sorry, meant to ask all weekend but didn't think of it again until we were off-site.

Thanks again for having us! Nice people, great site, fun event - just what we were hoping for. :)

Usually they get posted up once someone has time to scan them in (Reijo possibly) - they are just hand written sheets.

So just to confirm - we are meeting at the storage place at 7:00 to load the truck(s) or are we meeting at the parking lot at 7:00pm to begin setup?

Automotive Marketplace / Re: WTB: 18x8 5/112 Wheels
« on: June 08, 2017, 12:07:00 PM »
Good luck, my experience on Kijiji is that 5x112 is fairly rare (maybe a couple sets a month come up on my ongoing daily alert).  Are you fixed on getting 18's, there was a set of MB mono blocks on my alert this morning, can't remember if they were in Edmonton or Calgary though and were an aggressive fitment (+30).
