    Default 2012 Calabogie GT Challenge

    Gentlemen:

    This time is upon us, The GT series will be announced shortly, but to set up dates i need to know if weekday evenings work (like the 2011 series) or if you guys would prefer a Saturday or Sunday evening. There was talk last year of some people not being able to participate because of work conflicts and not being able to get to the track on time. There are no guarantees i can get Sunday to work, but if there is an overwhelming response for it, I may be able to swing it!

    Let me know ASAP!

    Thanks

    Matt

    Should have another option for "whatever". I'm kinda in that category. I would drive the car into work, then leave early for an "appointment".

    I personally was able to make it work.

    If there is a GT lite...I'd go for the weekday evening.

    I think he means 30 min race? Not enduro. That's what I took it as.

    Ahhh, that makes sense! and yes the races will all be ~30-35 minutes so as not to torture the cars...or the drivers. Toying with the idea of the enduro again. We may just leave that to the Calabogie Cup.

    I actually prefer weekday evenings. I love leaving work early to head up to the track. That makes the work day THAT much more fun.

    But, that's just, as my work days are flexible.

    minimum of 2 classes, more if more people show. Last year we saw two very distinct groups. Wing, and everyone else. But seriously, there was definitely a faster group last year, and so long as we have the racers to support more classes they will be there. I will be organizing this will time brackets including break-out times. There will also be points this year.

    I'd be more inclined to join if it was a weekend.. I wanted to do this last summer but couldn't get away for the whole afternoon.

    That's currently the plan! Plus maybe something big for the class win at the end of the year!
