Re: Race weekend 6 and season afterglow.

Glad Roger was able to help out a bit. I still kind of feel responsible for the announcing since I lured Matt from Specs Howard years ago offering an "internship" program to help him populate his resume. Glad he's stuck around so long...........unlike myself. Hope to see ya all next year! Got get my...

Re: Race weekend 6 and season afterglow.

Don't tell me you didn't have any help in the tower with announcing!? I was sure you would. I would have made the sactrifice to be there had I known the subs fell through. It would have been a good chance to see some of my ole racing pals. Hope your voice comes back soon!

Rookie Alert

I know this is an oldie but a goodie. Just came across it again and it's a good lesson on what not to do. Perhaps there are those who haven't seen it:

Re: ITS tires

You may want to investgate a little further on this? I've heard that Chris (and seen results). Yes, now let's see.......... where did...

At any rate, I've got a year of seat time to make up so I'lll be happy just to race.............yeah right, for trhe first weekend an...

Re: ITS tires

Yes, I'm racing! What I'm racing, I don't know yet but rest assured, I'll be in an ITS car. I did speak with Lynn and Rob. I'm inferring from Christians post that Greg Steen would hold his position from last year. Probably too late anyway if no one feels strongly enough about it to take the leadersh...

Re: ITS tires

So who's spearheading any "A" ban? Randy, Christian? So far, from this thread or people I've talked to, this is what it looks like: Ban the Hoosier "A" Randy Shaw Christian Cook Matthias Ochs Greg Blastic Lynn Kraft Greg Steen Rob Martin Keep the Open DOT Rule Alex Pagani (if you decide to step it u...

That's the problem, there's no such thing as "old A" tires for us. :shock:

Re: ITS tires

Charlie is pretty much indifferent, although he does like running quicker on the A's and feels the #51 is better set up for the A's.
Lynn likes the "R" or I guess, no "A" rule.
I'm sure Bruce has been reading this and I can't/won't answer for him. I'm sure he'll pipe in at some point.

Re: ITS tires

I'd support it as well but not sure I qualify as a "voting member" as I let my membership go last year. I do plan on getting back up to speed (pun intended)this year.
I think it's a good idea if someone in good standing can spearhead the movement.......Randy?

Re: STL run group in Group 3?

Good deal Chris. Thanks. I would agree that STL would fit well in Group 3. What's the process to add that?
BTW Chris, where's that Neon going??

Re: STL run group in Group 3?

Randy, if you take the fenders off those things, would it be classified in Formula Mazda as well? :lol: I take it your car went from "DP" to STU and now is in the new STL? I wonder if the 13b 7's are in STU or STL?

Re: How do I get started racing? - answers within!

Dan Watkin's ITS RX7 is a good car. A littlte over your budget but....ITS is fast and fun. Cars are a little bigger, we have one guy that's about 6-2.
But, of course, you want something you could drive to the track.

Nice post Vaughn! It is hard to list all of the information to get started road racing, but you have made a very good start. Here again is the link to the SCCA rule book(GCR) for all rules and car classification. Car classification is usually a big topic for those that already have some sort of modi...
