    Grant's Race

    Yo MR! Come out and play. It's fine.

    Perth Brewery Annual 1morelap Invitational Stadium Track Bonanza (formerly known as Grant's Race).

    Chis (Geoff) will be hosting the annual season opening party if we get the go ahead in time...he just doesn't know it yet.

    August 31st, 2019
    $250ish race fee
    30 minute race with 20 minute qualifying.
    Door to door (need proper car set up, safety gear for driver, approved driver)
    Short track awesomeness.
    Drivers meeting will be right before the event
    Event likely to be early to mid afternoon
    Stuff going on all day so come and hang out
    No points, no classes, no winners, no drama.
    If you’ve got horns, honk them.

    Once I have a green flag on this I’ll ask people to reach out to anyone they know that could be eligible. A full grid on short track will be epic. However, I’ve been told that if it’s only two of us this will still happen so no pressure...just get people to come out and race!

    If they (or you) need a refresher on this track layout Greg will have open short track lapping available prior to the race.

    Here is the list of attendees that are a solid IN (If I missed you, let me know. If you change your mind or I've put your name on this list without consulting you first, suck it up Buttercup. You're in).

    Grant C
    Dave P
    Greg V
    Pierre B
    Doug G
    James B
    JP W
    Nastruck Ken
    Connell S

      No cage, no HANS....sounding like a lot of fast PT cars...out for this one. Still looking at one of the Sept dates as a taste for 2020.

      Details on open lapping before though? Short track open lapping? :O

        Please don't propagate PT is all about fast cars. PT can be slow cars too!

            If you can make it then the timing is perfect!

            This. PT is door to door. Plain and simple. Fast cars get kicked up just because the series wants to make sure those drivers are properly protected should an incident occur. One mistake at a pace of 2:18 has a more impact than at 2:30.

            Speed is never a disqualifier for PT...a car can never be too slow. It’s just...different.

                Nothing yet but I think giving people the chance to lap on short track would be a unique experience. Doesn’t happen...ever?

                    Yeah a few calabogie club days were short track and I thought OB too. But pretty rare.

                      Yeah novice day. Also seem to recall an MCO day once.

                      Yeah, rare.

                        I've always thought a short-track lapping night would be cool. Once a year special event only. Can't imagine you could have the full roster on track like we do at 1morelap...so charge more and have less cars.

                          Post #9 is the details post for now. If I missed you on the ‘this is wicked, I’m 110% in’ list let me know and I’ll update it.
