Solo (Autocross) / Re: FALKEN CONTINGENCY

This was a contingency for 2017, it has been discontinued for 2018.  Sorry if this caused any confusion.

Solo (Autocross) / July 14th, T&T / informal Novice School
« on: May 31, 2018, 01:35:28 pm »
Seat time, seat time, seat time.  We are planning on holding a Saturday event with very limited spots.  Unfortunately less spots means we need more money per person to cover site / sanctioning  / and insurance fess and because of the risk of people backing out this needs to be paid in advance with no refunds (but you can resell your spot).

Format will be:
•        11 am -11:45 registration/tech,
•        11:45 drivers meeting
•        30 minute run / 30 minute work / 20 minute tune (for those that want to make adjustments) 1:20
•        30 minute run / 30 minute work / 20 minute tune (for those that want to make adjustments) 2:40
•        30 minute run / 30 minute work / 20 minute tune (for those that want to make adjustments) 4:00
•        This should get us to an ending time just after 4 pm
•        The main course will be in our "regular" lot, just shorter for more runs.
•        “Skid pad” on the “hill” lot (similar to a fundamental course we ran at ECCC-N, no course workers maybe partner up?, driver sets up down cones)
•        Main course is cold during 20 minute tune, “skid pad” is hot at all times
 
Cost is dependent on how many drivers we get, need to “raise” ~$1250 IN ADVANCE:
•        Min 20 drivers = $60/70
•        25 drivers = $50/60
•        Max 30 drivers = $45/55
•        Non-members +$10
•        No refunds unless the goal of 20 drivers minimum is not met.
•        You may sell spot to other drivers if can’t make it.
•        I want to “raise” the money in cash vs. motorsportsreg as it will be easier to do "flexible pricing".  Initially everyone pays $60/70 and  I’ll handle the money and “flexible pricing based on entrants” and refund the difference accordingly.
•        I will start to bum money at event 3 and hopefully by the end of the day we will have reached the goal.

There is no guarantee of how many runs you will get, but I would expect with 20 drivers 20+ runs is possible and with 30 drivers 15+ runs is possible.

Michelin primacy hp in 215/45-17. These are takeoffs from a brand new brz. About 100 miles on them due to car delivery--they were immediately taken off by the dealership. Still have nubs on the edges.


These are 684 shipped at discounttiredirect.

2012 Results / Re: Event 1 - Ralph Wilson - 5/20/2012
« on: May 21, 2012, 03:16:14 pm »
Result of the protest - Jesse Hellwig's fastest run has been nixed in accordance with the excessive run rule.  Therefore, he has been demoted as class winner.  So sayeth the Timing Chief.
To be fair this was not the participant's error (he took the allotted 7 runs).   I tried to resolve the issue before trophies but there was confusion as to whether or not the PAX time was being generated.

The NASA system is still going to reward the person that does the fewest mods and puts on Hoosiers at the widest width possible to avoid going over 20 points.

And that is still going to be frustrating to anyone else not doing the same.

Ladies Class:
There will be no ladies class.

Wait are we saying Ladies are not allowed to run in WNY-SCCA?  Or are there provisions that they can run in their respective class (but obviously required to remove the "L" from their car and place it on their forehead).

Solo (Autocross) / Nelson Ledges: School & FunDay Sept 10th & 11th
« on: August 26, 2011, 02:04:08 pm »
A couple years ago we asked you ( our auto-X crowd ) if you wanted to do a PDX at the Great Pumpkin.  We saw quite a few hands go up to say "yes" at the driver's meeting, but we didn't get enough interest to hold a PDX session.

So to make things simple for us and you we are going to piggy back off of Nelson Ledges own NLU Drivers School and FunDay.  There are fellow WNYers going down from NYSpeed, and a few of us will be going down to test out out LeMons.

Who: you, the driver, no prior track experience necessary
What: driving on a 2.0 mile road course, fast, in your own car*
When: Sept. 10th & 11th
Where: 3 hours away in Ohio
Why: because driving fast on a track is fun

*Car needs no special safety equipment, just factory seat belts, Snell SA or M helmet.  Nelson is very easy on brakes but still I do recommend upgrading to front track pads (Hawk Blue, Carbotech XP10, etc.) and high temp fluid (ATE superblue, Motul RBF600).  Other than that if your car is auto-X worthy, it probably is track worthy.

General Information
We, here at Nelson, want your FunDays experience to be as pleasant as possible and we take every precaution to ensure that. We ask that all FunDays participants adhere to the following general rules in addition to our FunDays driving rules.

    ALCOHOL IS NOT PERMITTED.
    Absolutely no aggression/road rage is tolerated. One warning is given then you will be asked to leave the property.
    Track time will be between 20-25 minutes per session. This is for your safety.
    A helmet is required. (Snell approved motorcycle is OK)
    All open cars and convertibles must have a roll bar, reinforced factory rollover protection; similar to a Porsche Boxter or BMW M3.
    Proper attire is required. This is defined as sleeved shirt, closed-toe shoes and long pants. NO shorts, tank or halter- tops, sandals or open-toed shoes are allowed; shoulders, legs and feet must be covered. Again, this is for your safety.
    We do allow a passenger, over the age of 18 and helmeted, in the car with you.
    There is a Drivers Meeting prior to the beginning of the FunDay. This is important, so please attend.
    For your safety, it is important to listen and comply with track personnel.
    Please check your car thoroughly prior to going on the track or have a mechanic do so prior to coming to the track. Check brakes, brake line, hoses, cooling system, tires, power steering system etc. Under track conditions, belts and hoses do break, so do not take a chance on missing the day with a broken part.
    All participants must be over 18 yrs old, carry a valid driver’s license, and have current auto insurance.
    We reserve the right to refuse service.

Still have room, so if you didn't pre-register, come on out before 9:30 and we will get you in.

Even if you don't consider yourself a novice, use as a test and tune, because you will get a crap load of runs.

If you are interested please pre-register. No advance money is required, but it will give us an idea of head count.
