The 'FAT KAT' Challenge event is open for registration.

Registration deadline for the 'FAT KAT" Challenge has been extended to Friday, Aug 11 at 8:00 pm.

This is likely the only Solo event you can participate in for significant prize money based on your own run index ability.
Everyone has an equal chance at the $$$. Don't miss the opportunity.

Also Note:
Saturday's prize money payout will be revised from 3 deep PAX finishers in the 4 groups, morning and afternoon, to a Random TEAM PAX winner and Random TEAM RAW winner payout, due to the lower entrant levels.

Fast or Slow... Everyone has a chance at the dough.
any chance that you would offer a Saturday only sign up option ?

Looks like your real excited about this Wayne.

Can you please give us a little more info on the structure of Saturday/Sunday

On Saturday it is like a regular autox.  However the times you post are used to determine your index for Sunday.

In a very basic sense:  The Sunday runs are on the same course but your time from Saturday determines your placement on the ladder but you run against your own best time.  The other person running "against" you also runs against their own best time.  Whoever matches their own best PAX time or more more closely wins and moves to the next step. 

Also if you "break out" or run faster than your best time on Saturday, then your PAX time gets adjusted to the new time for the next run (x1.5 the difference I think?   but this is a small detail) and the process repeats until there is only one left - the winner.  There may be a run-off for 2nd and 3rd place because the way the ladder system works.

The beauty is that you are running against your own best time .... not just the best PAX time like in the SCCA Pros and such.  And, because of that everyone has an equal chance.  You just have to be consistent ... and clean, of course.

Is that a fair description in elementary terms, Wayne?  Please make corrections as needed!   :)

That about covers it Reijo. I wanted everyone... fast or slow... to be able to compete on equal terms for the challenge.

For Sunday's event, how will drivers know if they're into the next round or not?
Are we keeping track of our own results or will results be announced after each competing pair go out... (or is it after each run group)
eg. after a pair have their run, announcement is made "competitor 1 progresses to next round"....Then competitor 1 knows that he needs to go back to the grid & competitor 2 knows he is going back to the pitt.

Sorry if I'm not 100% clear here. Its so difficult to write out what I'm trying to say.Haha

If you're quicker than your previous run, you're already a winner.

Yep, you are more or less right.  As each car is run, the PAX time is calculated and if there is a "break-out", then that is calculated as well.

Then the next heat is announced etc.  We will track it all.  Just show up and run when you are asked to.   :)

It's quite exciting and fun.

I asked the same question, here was the answer.

"To clarify.
Passengers (non competitors) are allowed.
Competitors are not allowed to ride along with another competitor. (An advantage seeing the course more times at speed)
Hope this helps. "

If you haven't signed up, there are less than 4.5 hrs. left until we close registration.  Get on it!   :)

We'll be setting up late this afternoon - meet at Public Storage at 5 pm ... probably before 5:30 (1 load) at the YYC site to set up.

We can use some extra help since the course is a long and somewhat complicated one (an advantage to see it and sleep on it?  :)  ), and, hence, quite a few cones PLUS we will line the course. ... reminds me ... gotta pick up some flour!  :)
