Solo (Autocross) / Re: "Bracket" PAX class

I like the idea of doing it as a supplemental extra challenge style thing - that way people will still go fast in their own classes.  

I'm almost thinking that instead of a cash prize, we have some sort of silly trophies?  I just don't like the idea of money for something like this, because it might encourage people to sandbag too much.

Like we were discussing at the meeting, we need to figure out a way to measure "breakout" consistently.

What if, before the event, we nominate a specific driver as the "rabbit" to chase.  Which could be especially interesting if you picked a historically slow driver, and then you would have to pick a pax over 1.00 to have a slow enough time...

What browser are you using?  Does it remember you at all - if you close the window and open a new one, it doesn't remember you? If you quit the browser it doesn't remember you?

I really haven't figured out the outbox on the pm's yet.  It says I have a new message, but it's in the outbox.

Just as a heads up - none of the post attachments migrated over, so I'll have to do it manually.  Hopefully I'll get to it this week.

This includes meeting minutes and 2009 solo results.

This message was posted yesterday on the old board before I could disable it:

Greetings from Colorado.

As one of the guys that helped create the PRO class we ran in WNY, it was a class for drivers that wanted to compete with each other in highly prepared cars, and it was really fun!

Part of the reason behind the class was to create the opportunity for others to have a chance at winning their class. We looked at the discouragement factor that could have happened from drivers that didnt want to/ couldnt get the car to the level needed to be ultra competitive against those who did/ could.

Would combining your classes create that kind of issue, where a handful of drivers would be far and away leading the pack event after event? Would others get discouraged and stop showing, working against what you were trying to achieve?

Just thoughts.

Solo (Autocross) / Re: Karts at autocross events?
« on: October 23, 2009, 07:55:15 am »
Of course go karts are allowed at autocross.  I'd take a look at the rulebook regarding the F125 class rules, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

I could, if anyone cared enough.  Start a new thread if you really want, or continue here - it really doesn't matter to me.

Dale has a good point.  Let's say, hypothetically, you have a region that has a large number of people that will only compete in a class if they think they can win.  Now you just took them and moved them into one class where they are pretty sure they won't win.  We can't afford to have any smaller of a turnout than we have had at the last few events.

If you want a larger index class to compete against those with great driving skills, why not bring back the Pro class?
