Solo (Autocross) / Re: 2009 FLR National Tour Excel Results

I second the congrats on a Tour win. Sometimes weather, or whatever bites you in the rear, sometimes it works out in your favor. No matter how, a Tour win is REALLY GOOD.

                                          2pm     to         5pm

      Tuesday, Sept. 8          9am      to         Noon

                                          2pm     to         5pm

      Wednesday, Sept. 9     9am      to         Noon

                                          2pm     to         5pm

Registration for the Monday-Wednesday times is on a first come basis. Register on site at the Test N Tune course area.  The cost remains $35/hour for three runs.  Again, a fourth run may be purchased for a $10 donation to the Marines Toys for Tots program or with the donation of a new, unwrapped toy.      

8.      Great news!  No mandatory work assignments for anyone participating in the   NTNT.  The Nebraska region will be using a portion of the entry fee to pay workers during the NTNT.  Anyone that would like to work the test event and receive payment for their time may contact Mark Walker, Nebraska Region, to discuss the arrangements.

9.      As stated in the National Championships Supplemental Regulations E.1 – this is a single tech event. Tech will open on Friday Noon and close at 7pm.

All vehicles must pass the event safety inspection (Tech) prior to any on-course participation. The inspection will be valid for all three (3) events – Test β€˜N’ Tune, ProSolo Finale, and Solo Nationals. Inspection procedures are designed to recognize potential safety concerns that may affect the operation of our event and your Nationals experience. Tech will be at the event site.

•         A reminder that registration is open and the cost: $135/person, $180 with waiver for anyone not attending a 2009 Tour or Divisional event.  After August 14,the entry fee goes up to $270, so don’t delay registering.
•         The Monday night welcome party will be from 5:30 p.m. - 10 p.m. and will be hosted by the Smith Collection Museum of American Speed and the Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau.  All attendees are invited to partake of the food and festivities which include a tour of the museum.  For a sneak peak visit  
•         Overnight Parking/Camping is allowed at the Lincoln Airpark.  The cost is $40 and registration is located on the National Championship webpage.
•         The host hotel is the Embassy Suites located less than 10 minutes from the event site.  We do have a special rate of $109/night and a link for registration is on the National Championship website.  We recommend making hotel reservations early, as the Nebraska State Fair and a University of Nebraska football game will be occurring at the same time as the National Championship and ProSolo Finale.
•         The new site location brings a new look to the banquets.  Wednesday and Friday night will be reception-style, allowing competitors to mix and mingle prior to entering the hall for the awards ceremonies.  Food will be plentiful.  All competitors will receive one (1) drink ticket that may be redeemed for beer or wine -- after that it is a cash bar.  Additional dinner tickets may be purchased on site or by calling the Solo department at 800-770-2055.  The cost is $20/Adult and $10/child (10 and younger).  This is a reduction from last years pricing of $25/$15.
•         Downtown parking at the Embassy Suites may be a challenge for anyone attending the Awards Ceremonies with their rigs in tow.  But don’t worry!  The City of Lincoln has arranged for off-site parking and shuttle transportation to and from the hotel.  Parking will be provided free of charge at the University of Lincoln baseball complex -- security will be provided to watch your vehicles -- beginning at 4 p.m. on Wed and Fri.  Return shuttles will run until 10:30pm.  After that you will need to walk or call a taxi.  The host hotel is located within walking distance of The Haymarket District -- a hot bed of food, drink and entertainment.  Expect to be asked at Paddock Check-In if you will be using the shuttle service --  we need a head count to give to the city.

First Event this Sunday....

As many know, a number of our regular event setup folks will be in Nebraska, so I'm going to need some help in setup.

Particularly since this is the first event, and the lot is kind of a mess, a lot of lot cleanup will be needed in addition to the normal course setup.

If you are willing to help push the blower, and setup course on Saturday at 4:00, let me know.



Solo (Autocross) / Re: What class am I? *Thread*
« on: April 20, 2009, 08:26:35 am »
Z3 is a two seater, so automatically not in ST or STX. Good chance it is eligible for STS (formerly STS2). For these classes, tire size is not regulated, but wheel size is, I think STS has the same max width that ST has -- 7.5in. So, check the STS listing, if your car is eligible (maybe, maybe not) and your wheels are 7.5 inches wide (or less), then you would fit into STS. If you're not listed, then Jim is right, BSP. Although, if you took off the intake you would be able to go back to stock class (BS).
