Due to the experimental nature of this event and the configuration of courses, pit, and grid we have elected to exclude the participation at this event for the kid kart classes of FJA, FJB, and FJC.
We apologize for any inconvenience.

I'm in for the school.

Come with some extra air in you tires and as Jay suggested clean out your car interior (including the trunk).  That way if it rains your stuff isn't outside on the grass.  Rain is fun (think snow sliding)
Guaranteed a blast!

Hey Jay.  Good to hear from you.  We had what 8 runs in an elapsed time of approx. 6 hours for event one? We ran heats so there was a bit of downtime in there.  If we can continuously roll cars without heats we could process 80 cars in the same amount of time with 6 runs I think.  The actual course design for event one was not particularly efficient because the car on course was 75%+ done with its run before we could start the next car.  We ran the config due to low reg and a real threat of rain.
Anyone want to help here?

Great bargain!  Bring someone to Event 2 that hasn't done Solo before and share the fun.

Hmm, 30+ people looked at this thread................
You know I enjoy our intimate little Sunday get togethers with 8 runs and done by mid-afternoon.  The program is sustainable as long as we have ECCN but I really want to inject some new blood and ideas.  Not to mention share the burden of operating the program by spreading out the responsibilities.
All we need is everyone to get ONE new person involved on a regular basis.  That doubles our attendance, our income and our talent base.
You don't need to attend meetings or ring door bells or make telethon phone calls or donate money.  Just share what you love to do.  Friends, family, co-workers, the girl (or guy) you want to impress and spend more time with.
I challenge every driver in WNY to really try to get at least one new person hooked on Solo this year.
We are going to make that task a little easier for Event 2.
Stay tuned.

I like guerilla marketing conceptually.  We need the right approach to communicate that what we offer is skilled (think 'chess meets road racing') competition in a SAFE environment but you will be blown away that it is legal and so inexpensive.  We teach and nuture...............

Start Time:  Can we poll people on this site or just try it once with sufficient prior notification?  How about a short survey at Reg next event to catch those that don't visit our website?  What else do we want to ask?

A later start as long as the event concludes by 4:30ish could work.
Other possibilities could include promotions to encourage new folks.  One thought is if you bring a new driver then we comp you a $5 gift cert for Jeremy's Tasty Eats.  
I spent quite a bit of time with a fellow at Event 1 that came to Batavia last year to watch.  He wants to get involved in Solo but right now hasn't found a car in his budget and wondered about co-driving.  Jeremy tried this last year but I wonder if we could do it more formally as a region some how.
Let's kick some ideas around we have much to gain.

Just back from Event One.    What a great gift we had weather size today!.. Any body who stayed away missed 8 runs and done by 2:15.  To Dale, Dave and Jon (and others) who designed and built the the course - I liked it.  It required more focus than some courses at ECC have in the past.  I know you guys designed for rain but I liked the mix even in the dry.  I missed the fact that after the first heat with marbles and dampness that I needed to radically raise my rear tire pressure to reduce understeer.  I will tatoo that on my forehead for future reference.  Congrats to Carrie for her first ever top ten PAX!!!!!!!!!
Now I need to nurse my sunburn since I actually removed my bottle of sunscreen from the car before leaving the house this AM.  DOH!
