Solo (Autocross) / June 26th @ SEAD - ProSolo!
« on: May 26, 2011, 02:18:25 pm »
We are going to try something a little different for the next event at Seneca.  I have been working to figure out how we can run a small version of a dual course prosolo, and I think I have worked it out to a point where it should be a good time.  

For those of you that have not run a dual course style prosolo event before, the premise is simple:

You have 2 courses that are mirror opposites of each other.  Both cars start side by side at the same time.  Once you finish your run, you line up on the other side and fun the opposite course.  You do this twice per heat (for a total of 2 runs per side), and after a couple of heats, the fastest time from each side is added together for your total time.

It's a little bit drag racing, a little bit solo, a little bit mirrorkhana.  It gives you the feel that you are racing directly against someone else.  The courses will be shorter than a normal event, at about 30-35 seconds per side.  However, we *should* be able to get 3 heats, so that would be 12 total runs, or equivalent to 6 runs on a 60-70 second course.

But wait - there's more!!!!  The Challenge Round!
Just like at a regular prosolo, we will also be running a Challenge Round!  The winners of each class, automatically qualify.  The remaining spots are filled by the top finishers in PAX.  They will then run a single elimination bracket head to head, with no timing - first one to the finish wins!  You might be thinking to yourself, "But what if I have a slower car and I'm up against something really fast?"  To address this issue, I've decided to use the mirrorkhana staggered start method, where the faster car gets a slight distance penalty on the start in order to equalize the cars a bit.  The last car remaining at the end wins!!!!*

So come on out and help us make this a fun time!

Attached are the rules for the event**.  Any questions?

* - there is no actual prize for winning the Challenge Round....unless I find something silly laying around my house....
** - rules subject to change, and are not to be considered final until the day of the event.

Solo (Autocross) / Season Standings!
« on: September 30, 2010, 11:16:34 am »
So I have posted current year end totals.  Please look them over and tell me if I'm missing anything, or need to combine scores between classes, yadda yadda yadda....
viewtopic.php?f=16&t=222

Remember, you need a minimum of 4 events to qualify for a trophy, and your best 8 count.

As it stands:

CS: Holly McReynolds. could take the trophy, but she needs to run CS in the last event to meet the minimum events.
ESP: Jenner Hazan clinched the trophy for this season.
CP: James Hoelscher has a 14 point lead going into the last event - can he hold off Mike Stutzman one more time?
DP: A tight race has developed between both Reeves' and Brian Ciarlei.  All 3 are within a 10 point spread, but all 3 only have 3 events.
GP: Dave Dill has finished enough events to have a commanding lead!
CM: Mark Haniszewski is 1 event shy of qualifying, so hopefully he can make it to the last event to claim his trophy.
EM: Paul Schaver sits on top, but if Paul is a no show, and Steve Hayward takes the victory, it could spell upset for Paul.
FM: Todd Miller has a commanding lead over his competition.
ST: John Stephens has a 1 event advantage over his competition, but he is not out of reach of Jeff Weaver or Shaun Hallam.  Attendance could play a vital roll in this class.
STS: Scott Prior has 1 extra event of family member Dave Prior, but his lead is only 52 points, so it is truly anybodies fight.
STX: Paul Quinn has locked up his trohpy for this season.
STU: Dan Kaufman has a commanding lead over the rest of the STU field.
SM: Andy Walker repeats as the king of SM...but next year may yield a new challenger...
FJA: Jake Bucknam continues to dominate the gokarts.
Pro: Dave Potocki has a 15 point lead over Chris Morton, which looks to be an impossible gap to overcome.  However, the fight for 2nd between Chris and Dale Kunze is only 3.66 points, which can easily be made up in the last event.
Road Tire: George Modlin is holding onto first place my a thread from challenger Greg Turner.  Greg is 1 event shy, so if Greg can finish close enough to first, he can still take over the title.
Novice: An interesting battle in novice has 2 contenders for the trophy - Angelo Fillipone and Grant Chamberlain.  What's truly interesting is that both of their cars are currently broken, so it will be interesting to see what both of them end up driving for the last event.

Solo (Autocross) / 7/25 FLR OOR - Anyone going?
« on: July 12, 2010, 08:36:41 am »
Is anyone planning on head to the seneca OOR in a couple weeks?  They have a bunch of our cones, and we need them for our next event.  Would it be convenient for anyone/everyone that's going to bring back a handful of cones?
