Jethro
February 10th, 2014, 04:24pm
I didn't see info about changing team members on the website soI asked them...this is what they said:


A team can change drivers up to a week before the event and a team can enter with only one driver now (to ensure a spot and low price) and add other drivers later. Event shirts will be provided to the teams at registration so as to reduce costs, but will be made a month before the event, so changes after that cannot guarantee the right shirt sizes.

And....


we now have 5 confirmed entries of a max of 60.

I have teamed up with Norm Wong and we will be running my car instead. It appears that all the other Ottawa entries have dropped out?

If anyone has some MR stickers I can get, would be happy to put them on the car.

So we need to tow a small trailer behind the car for the entire event (1 week), and was wondering if someone would have one we could borrow for a week? Dates are Sept.13-20.
Needs to be small enough to be towed behind my car but big enough to hold 4 tires, tools and some supplies.

Back in Calabogie tonight getting ready for the next 2 days at our home track, we need to kill it.

For Mosport today, we ended up much better than expected with a 3rd in our class at Time Attack. 1st in class was a very nicely prepped WRX with 450whp, then Team Scion Racing with their supercharged ex-Targa FR-S (270whp). My car is only 195 at the wheels but we managed a respectable 1:41 on a ballsout power track that we have both been to only once before.

For the autocross, we were .8 secs off first place from a Miata, and missing out on 2nd place by a mere .001 sec, yep one-thousandt Dammit!
But we beat Team Scion Racing to 3rd place by .01 sec, very tight.

I think overall we may be tied for 2nd or 3rd (?), but two days at Bogie should keep us up there in the standings. http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/09/14/6f3dd0a2074c8835fee05927de68945d.jpghttp://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/09/14/e7f3d6d8ffdad69b965b63eda78c953e.jpghttp://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/09/14/e2c62e8caff18a185f48ac350cfebb31.jpg

Wow, crazy fun day.

Time Attack on East Track

Started off with fastest of all in practice with a 1:22.
Then did a 1:21.1 in my first session, but got beat by a Camaro SS with 500whp and track pack.

After lunch I switched from the RS3 to the RE71R to see if I could claw back the lead.
I needed a half second but knowing the track would be slower in the afternoon, we needed to better our time. Got down to a 1:20.7xx despite the slower track but some of the fast cars got the flow of the track so we managed a 4th.

1st - CanJam WRX. 1:19.3
2nd - 2014 CamaroSS 1:20.5xx
3rd - Scion Racing FRS 1:20.5xx
4th - Team Slick FRS 1:20.7xx

Autocross
We killed it, got first place in Autox ahead of the CanJam WRX, Miata 3rd and Scion Racing 4th.

Kenny is our Autox guy for the 2 days at Bogie so he got us the win. I need to step up my game for Autox the rest of the week but I did 1 run today and was less than a second behind him.

We should have scored 2nd overall for the day today with 985 points. CanJam got 995. We are now 20 pts ahead of Scion Racing.

Not sure where we stand overall, thought we were 4th after yesterday but was actually 7th. Classing is weird for Time Attack with all classes. We might have moved to 3rd or 4th overall, not sure.

Oh, pics from our Concours D'elegance where competitors voted for the other cars.

Lol at the GTR guys parking right up against the fence. Wouldn't want to have the picture of the 'less-than-shiney-side', if you know what I mean.

Was a great day. Some of the non-autox (aka never done it before) felt that they were at a disadvantage. Imagine that... signing up for a provincial level, multidisciplinary event and not even taking the time to learn how to properly execute one of the 3 styles of events. Don't know why they expected hand-holding. The track was a little complex, but easy enough to navigate if you did a course walk or two.

On a side note, it was my first time lapping on short track. Holy fack dat's fast! Thanks again to raggedrabbit for showing me how to take turn 1. Also, lapping is awesome when there's only 3-4 people on track. No distractions, all practise.

Yep, Kenny Barbeau. We're gonna have Kenny join us for the weekend for the remaining autocrosses.

Nope. Playing by the rules even though no one is checking.

Matched my best E85 lap on 94 so pretty happy with that.


Kenny got us a 2nd place in Autox so overall we are 2nd for the day.

En route to Shannonville after some eats...

It's gonna be a crazy day.

We heard unfortunate news that the dominating Team CanJam suffered an engine failure after the event yesterday on the way out of Calabogie.

That leaves Scion Racing in 2nd with us a mere 5 points behind with a maximum of 1000 points available today.

Both of today's events are Time Attack.
Nelson in the AM and Pro this afternoon.

Pressure is on!

If they can make it here even late this morning enough to run one lap, they would get 450 points at least for that session. Hoping they make it back.

BTW , scoring is 500 pts for 1st, 495 second, 490 for third, etc..
