Re: Proposed new/updated DE/TT rules for 2011

I propose that we amend Rule 2.3D c. that reads : "Drivers must wear long sleeve shirts and long pants; all clothing to be of natural fibers." by adding the following text: "Event chairs may allow wearing shorts and T-shirts in hot weather."

Ken,

Thanks for your thoughts. You get to be the first one to suggest something.

I will start a new forum for suggested rule changes, and will transfer your input there.

Thanks Mike, I will take you up on your offer.


We are now up to 20 participants in Track Orientation on Thursday evening, so I will need a third vehicle. Any other offers out there?

I need one or two people with Suburban/Large SUV to help me Thursday night at 6:00 pm at Thunderhill. We have 13 students coming to Track Orientation which now includes a "drive and stop" around the track. I have a Suburban that can take 7 students, so I need capacity for another 6.

Re: Instructors for Thunderhill on 1/17/09

In case you are wondering, it was an awesome event. About 70 drivers showed up so there were 3 run groups. That gave plenty of track time for all. The weather was just fantastic, 70 degrees in the afternoon, not a cloud in the sky. I gave a short pitch for the GGR DE/TT/Club Racing program and hande...

Car classification questions

What is the best way to get answers to technical questions related to the Club Racing rules and how they affect car classification? Specifically, I am wondering: 1/ whether MSD qualifies under the stock designation? Rule 1.O states "Any spark coil and CD unit is allowed . . ." 2/ if the tub and the ...

Re: 2009 Proposal: Revert Classification System

I am strongly in favor of staying with the current system. If we were seriously to look at a different point system, I suggest that now that we have Club Racing we would want to have a system that allows for easy migration onto the racing scene. This is just an idea (and I am NOT volunteering to dri...

Re: 2009 Proposal: Revert Classification System

I suggest it would be useful to write down what the classification system is supposed to accomplish, at a conceptual level rather than in the details. I just re-read the philosophy page and it does part of that, but my take is that we could do better. For instance, here is a rough concept: "The Poin...

Re: 2009 Proposal: Revert Classification System

Larry Sharp explained above why the rules were adopted in the first place. There was rational thought applied to the change at the time. Specifically, it was clear that the previous classification system had outlived its usefulness in light of the proliferation of models. Rather than the nostalgic n...

Re: Actron CP9135 Diagnostic Scanner

Google your scanner, you ought to be able to find the manual on line.
The OBD port in the 996 should be on the left hand side of the driver's foot well, above where your left leg would go.
