Re: AX6 - preliminary results

Joe,
Say it isn't so. This isn't a swan song for playing is it? You'll still come out, right?

GGR #6 at Marina...

On the map, the course looked too boxy and tight. But, walking showed how wide open it was in regards to line selection. The course was 40' wide all over. Obviously, you had to follow the course, but you had room to pick the line you liked. A welcome change for me. It turned it into more of a flowin...

Re: Any trouble linking to MSReg for AX#6?

Thanks Dave.... and for not saying I'm the missing link. That's the screen I managed to find, but at this point I only wanted to see who's signed up and not commit yet. Previously, I'd been able to use the "sign in" button for the relevant event and could see who's registered - this time it flips to...

Any trouble linking to MSReg for AX#6?

My email from the Chair didn't have a usable link and I've tried to find #6 at MotorsportReg….. when I do finagle a screen for #6 and go to "sign in", it bounces me to AX#5. LPR's portion (zone event) of the master listing shows, but not GGR.

Is a link missing somewhere?

thanks,

Re: GGR AX#05 Prelim Results

Everything but the tires (which I pulled out of the shed). I haven't been that loosey/goosey in a long time. I think Paul had it in for me with his well placed direction changes. I beat him once 10 years ago and this is what I've had to deal with ever since. (this site has not really dealt with bant...

Re: Alert: GGR AX#3 is SUNDAY 27May (not saturday!)

Update: I just signed in and there are 85 entrants showing. So, perhaps Saturday's group was already informed and those that could, transferred over?

Re: Alert: GGR AX#3 is SUNDAY 27May (not saturday!)

As I recall (but not to be trusted), the original date was Sunday the 27th. But, somewhere along the way it became Saturday. I wonder if this could create a stand-by or reserve or just drop in event?

Re: Why is GGR not showing entry list before event?

Thanks Derek.... it was mostly a vent. Even signed in, prior to commitment, I couldn't see who was attending. In the past, I'd monitor sign-ups prior to committing so I could gauge if it was getting close to cut-off. Dave - I've looked closely at Marina this time. I love that place. So true about se...

Why is GGR not showing entry list before event?

I gotta say - I'm not happy with the new habit of not showing the number of entries before the event is closed.

Is it a new marketing program?

Did somebody forget again?

That stinks.

Rules proposals for 2018

1) Is GGR going to continue the points systems?

2) Looks like most people have given up on trying to update it. Me included. Is there any talk of just going to PCA based categories?

thanks,

...been a bystander for quite a while now and still need some recoup time, but I got to play at the last event and started thinking about the drivers of today and the newer cars with tons of power. I'm not trying to diminish the skill sets of the people who have been doing this for some time, for th...

I'm sorry to have to bring the news, but our friend Doug MacKenzie died last month after an approximate 2 year battle with Multiple Myeloma. His wife Kaye asked that I pass the information along to the GGR community. Doug really loved autocrossing and being with all the fine people and friends he ma...
