Also, take a look at the supplementals, we have a new classing structure that will affect most people. There are a total of 7 classes, and "R" tires will automatically go into Pro class. Stock, SP, ST, and Novice will all be 140 or higher tread ware tires only. The classes are all indexed. Here's the list:

Stock, SP, ST, Novice, P/M, Karts (kid), and Pro

Solo (Autocross) / Re: Solo at ECC North

It's been impossible to get a real explanation of what's going on. It is certain that non-school activities have been moved out. Various reasons have been mentioned including construction for the new YMCA, a new attorney that won't consider outside groups, and a new committee that's decided against outside activities. We will never know what actually happened, but we are aware that we were not singled out.

I'm really surprised that this topic has not received much in the way of comments. Is there that little interest, or doesn't anybody read the site, or ????

Solo (Autocross) / New Solo Site for WNY
« on: February 08, 2012, 12:53:44 pm »
Just wanted to let everyone know, thanks to the efforts of Dave Dill,
we have finally, after years of on and off trying, secured Ralph
Wilson Stadium for use for 2 events this summer, and hopefully more to
come.

The first event will be held on June 10th, with a second hopefully
following in August once the NFL pre season schedule is set.

We will be using the freshly paved lot to the north of the stadium,
with a separate lot to the north of that for grid and paddock.  We are
very excited.

You can see the site here.  Use arial view, not birds eye as the
configuration has changed recently.
The nice dark fresh pavement is for running on, the chewy gravely
looking pavement to the north is for grid and paddock, and is
separated by a guard rail.  This site should offer some very nice
course configurations (read turns).

Please save the date and spread the word!

OK, Rod looked at them for me, and it turns out I do have pedal covers, so I don't have to do anything. But, since I hate my pedal covers, will I loose my ricer status points if I take them out?
