Re: Porsche Corral at Laguna Seca Historic Races?

Hi Ian, I use the Highway 68 entrance, since it is the most convenient. The PCA Corral is, typically, located in the infield area, but you won't be able to park in the corral without a corral pass. In fact, the guards at Laguna Seca that direct traffic won't even let you into the infield area withou...

Re: Porsche Corral at Laguna Seca Historic Races?

Hi Ian, There will be a PCA Corral at the Motorsports Reunion, but unfortunately registration closed on Aug. 6. The corral is being organized by Ginger Mutoza of the Monterey Bay Region - PCA and registrations were handled by MotorsportReg.com. I doubt any late registrations are being accepted, but ...

Re: Modification Point Clarification

Peter, A GT3 could have a competitive advantage over its 996 or 997 counterpart. The Points System prior to 2010 had a provision for "adjustment points." (See excerpt from 2009 Rulebook below) That provision was eliminated as part of simplifying the rules package for 2010. If you would like to see t...

Re: 2010 rules proposals

Hi Dan, The comprehensive proposal prepared by John Tavernetti and his team was approved by the DEC and, subsequently, by the Board. A couple of other minor proposals regarding car numbers and mandatory on-line classification also passed. There are a few additional details that need to be reviewed a...

Re: 2010 rules proposals

Roger, John, I wasn't able to get to the on-line rulebook to confirm it (the link isn't working), but I am almost certain that the DEC has the authority to make additional changes to the rules that weren't submitted as proposals. All changes then need to be approved by a vote of the GGR Board of Dir...

Re: 2010 rules proposals

I noticed in the pdf that Wayne posted with the rules proposals for 2010 that pages 14 to 19 were not fully displayed! Several columns on the left side of the spreadsheet with model and body style were ommitted. The chart with alternate basepoint curves was also not included. Attached is a pdf with ...

Re: DE/TT DEC representative

I would like to sincerely thank whoever nominated me for the DE/TT position. However, since I have not actively Time Trialed in the past few years, I do not feel it would be appropriate for me to serve as this year's DE/TT representative. Both John and Ross are active in the series and either would ...

Re: ALMS Porsche Corral pass needed

Hi Jeffrey, Larry Sharp, PCA's Zone 7 Representative, is helping organize Porscheplatz which includes the corral. Larry is the right person to contact with your request. (larrysharp@comcast.net) Porscheplatz is limited to 150 cars and is already sold out. Probably, the only way you would be able to ...

Re: Why aren't stock classes PAX'd?

Kevin, Dan and Ken are correct. The Showroom Stock autocross classes were initiated after the points-based classification system was implemented. SS classes are eligible for class points and a year-end trophy, but are currently not eligible for the PAX trophy. They were not included PAX because it w...

Dan, As you have probably noticed, there is a wide variation in published horsepower figures and curbweights, even among respected sources. In assembling the data, every attempt was made to use the most accurate information available. The values used in assigning basepoints were taken from a number ...
