SASC Events / Re: Videos from a Miata

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?

I'll have my wagon along, lots of room in it for bins and helmets, etc.

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).

Sadly, what you see is what is available.

We were running the display manually, and this worked fine.  However, the timing software seems to have quit saving the data from the point where we went manual.  Probably a software bug :(

No worries, I'll just have to continue believing that my 3 afternoon runs were in fact faster and cleaner than my morning results show.

Anyone get any feedback from the guy in the airplane, curious if the roll was his way of giving us a thumbs up or a thumbs down (or maybe he was getting a couple of photos of the event?).

Any chance of getting the afternoon fun run scores in a separate file - I was sure I had the course figured out after my ride along with Jeff in the morning but still DNF'd my third run and would like to see if my afternoon runs were any better.

Thanks, John

Looks like I'm probably free on the Friday afternoon if you'll need volunteers for setup again, not sure we'll be coming out for either of the days yet.

.....If my wife removes the ol' ball & chain ;D

Or get her hooked too like I did this weekend with my wife ;)  Be warned though, she might be faster than you (at least she was during the morning session, then I took notes on her line during the afternoon when I got to ride along and was able to pull ahead).

Here are some photos from the afternoon.  Note: I'm not a professional photographer, just a guy playing around with a camera.  These are unedited.

Feel free to pm me if you want the full resolution photos and I will see what I can do.

All photos can be found here.

Thanks, got a great shot of my wife in the yellow miata showing me the fast line so I could retake the lead from her in the afternoon:).

I have lots of free time right now, count me in as a rookie helper.

I swear there was a spot to put your member number in at the registration site too, and it said to put in tbd if you didn't have it yet (I bought both a membership and Sunday's registration at the same time), I didn't see the same thing when I registered for the 29th.
