Okay, I remember a bunch of people saying they'll be attending this autocross last month... no excuses! Same location (http://maps.infospace.com/canada.widept/kevmap?OP=GeoCode&OTMPL=%2Fkevmap%2Fmap-out.htm&QA=four+valley+drive&QC=Concord&QS=on&QO=CA&XNavigation=int&width=360&height=270&keepsize=1&seed=10441) as last month's event. I'll be running it for the club and hope to see a lot of new faces there! Cost is $15 for BMWCC members ($53.00 yearly registration fee if you're not). Be there @8:30am.

It's not a rip off. You are driving on the most intimidating racetrack in North America ->Mosport !

I will be doing the school again in April (Can't wait !!!).It's not a rip off...expensive it is,but who said this sport is cheap???

A) It is not a rip off! I suggest you go to the next one and see Randy drive! I personally was extremely impressed at his driving skills!
B) You can't just fly through the 3 levels in one week-end. It takes time to develop high speed driving on a race track VS. driving straight on the highway! Also you learn how YOUR car handles at the limit.

Expensive! LOL! That is pretty damn cheap for two days on one of the best tracks in North America! Even tho it is hard on brakes and tires...try paying $1000/day for open wheel schools!

BTW Rob why don't you tell them how close you were to eating a concrete barrier when you were at Mosport?

BTW Randy,

What's up with this "waiver document"?

This is a friendly reminder to print and complete your BMWCC Trillium autocross waiver document and REMEMBER to bring it to the event.

Because we feel that your car is slowly turning into a rust bucket without seeing any real action. :)

If I didn't work Sundays (Fridays & Saturdays off) I would be there for shure! Don't worry...no one will laugh! They will be at Rob when he is sitting there and not driving!

Have fun!,
Dave

Oh! And I bet $5 that you can probably pull better times than him (Rob) anyways! LOL!

holy guys... what's with all the Rob bashing lately? Give the poor guy a chance.*drunk* whatever... anyways Serge, the waiver form is just for making the registration process a little quicker instead of filing it all out on the hood of my Egg... that's all. Spurs... just bring your old membership number if you've got it. Looking forward to the entire weekend. Hope you can make it Rob (either way).

Randy,
Do you have to be a member to run? Do they still usually finish by 1 PM, and how many runs are expected?

Cheers
Mark

yes Mark, membership is still required to run. There is usually 5 runs total (1 practice, 4 timed) and it still ends around 1pm for the higher numbered cars. Hope to see you there.

Is the plan to meet and all drive to Cayuga together?...or, are we all just going to meet at Cayuga?

Should I connect my supercharger, turbo, AND NOS?, or just bring it stock (just kidding?).

Hey Randy, you said that you did a HID conversion on your 332. I have the same headlights as you (euro smileys) but do I still need a transformer to do the HID conversion, or can I just use Xenon bulbs?

Thanks,
Ara*th-up*

Ara,

Cayuga is another event/tread. This is for the Autocross in Concord on Sunday. The installation of HID's on any car require the ballast (to produce the high voltage). You'll need a 9006 adapter ring to retro fit the Xenon bulbs to the ellipsoid socket.

Good Luck and hope to see you there on Sun.

Randy
