8th and Final Autocross Event of the 2011 Season at Mosport DDT!
 
Hello all,

Here is the much anticipated answer to the question about where and when will our last autocross of 2011 be? We will be running a Solo 1 (on racetrack rather than Solo 2 in a parking lot) event on the Mosport DDT.

Where: 3233 Concession rd. 10, Bowmanville ON. GPS coordinates 44.055472,
- 78.678482
When entering the GPS coordinates enter city as Clarington, not Bowmanville.
http://www.mosport.com/visitor-info/directions

When: Sunday November, 20th 2011 at 8:00 am. It is imperative that all participants
arrive on time as their will be a mandatory safety and driver meeting for all participants! Please arrive early to allow sufficient time to prepare your car for the event and so on.

Cost: $100.00 incl. HST for members, $125.00 incl. HST for non-members. Lunch and
drinks will be included as the cafeteria will not be open. Bring snacks for later in case you get the munchies. Registration will be on-line via our website. It will be available soon. As an added bonus, all participants will be invited to remain after the last timed run has completed to take part in open lapping until 5pm when the track shuts down. Anyone not paying due diligence to rules set forth at the drivers meeting will be expelled from the event with no refund.


All of the same rules apply as the Solo 2 events with some minor changes. Helmets are mandatory. There will be cones on track creating obstacles. Each cone/gate that gets hit will add a 2 second penalty to your time. If you miss a gate, there will be there a 5 second penalty added to your time as we will be not be able to double back. If you go off track and damage your car there is no insurance coverage as this is a competition event. If you damage property at Mosport you are required to cover the cost of the damages incurred there. There will be an EMS attendant at the track. As this event is taking place in late November please dress and prepare accordingly for the environment. Remember, there is no such thing as bad weather for a track day, just inappropriate attire!

If you are not interested in participating but are willing and able to volunteer we would greatly appreciate your help. We need marshals to help ensure safety and success of our first Solo 1 event ever!

Sincerely,

John Venditti
Vice President/Competition Director

Everyone's a comedian......

I've really gotta get the coupe rolling for this! It was like 15 degrees today, so hopefully in two weeks it'll still be half decent, temperature wise. Too early for snow though.

Should be interesting!

OT and bank the time, hurts the wallet taking weekend days off though, hopefully it plays out

I really don't care about the weather personally. The classroom (portable) at the ddt is heated. We all know to dress appropriately, and hey any day at the track is a good day! I'm really looking forward to this. It took a lot of time to get approval, then organize it etc.

Yes Mike (DIY), Infinite Dice deserves a big thank-you! He Pm'd me with a possible fix for my serious stalling issue. He pointed out it may be the fusable link in the trunk just off of the battery positive lead. He was right, I took it apart and the link was cracked, so it depended on the way the lead was pulling whether it made contact or not. Fixed, and not repeated yet!

Can't wait for this event. Unfortunately the M3 cannot attend (have rear subframe issues that will be fixed over the winter - too many SMG Lauches with R-comps this summer!). Gonna have to improvise (cough*rental*cough).

dble Trouble 11-07-2011 10:45 PM

Randy that sucks about the M3 big time. But a big LOL about your replacement drive! Great spirit, doesn't matter what you bring just bring it!

EMPOWERD 11-08-2011 02:49 PM

Scratch my last post. I will have the M3 for the 20th. This event too important. Just don't know how much grip the R's will give me.

If it's cold and I can make it, I have an old worn set of winter tires on steelies I may use. The StarSpecs are rock hard under 7'C

So what / where are the current standings? I mean the championship should be coming down to this final event, correct? I'm going to make an effort to get my RA1's mounted this week, but I don't know if it'll be worth it or not.
