Kamus is curious: What's the format for these events - how many runs do you get? Specifically, do you get to practice the course before your timed run?

Hey Kam,

I've been to a few events last year, you do get a practice run which is not counted.
You then have 4 timed runs and your best time for the day counts towards your standings.

Registration Starts at 9am i believe, a course walk is also done and and the first car leaves the gate at 9:30? (i think...or could be 9am). Depending on the number of cars there could be a 20min-45min wait between runs. and typically the day ends around 1-3pm, again depending on the amount of cars that show up.

The courses are usually pretty low speed, mostly first gear, some courses with longer straights may allow for a quick 1-2 shift, but majority of the courses last year was done in 1st gear for me. Some ppl find it to be limiting and low speed (not as much fun), but it is good for begineers and I had fun.

Practice + 4 timed runs. Sounds very reasonable. I've heard that other people don't like the wait times, but 4 runs sounds very much worth it. Thanks!

Anyone planning to attend the autocross this weekend in Barrie at the Molson Centre on Sunday? I can't decide if I should go or not because I'm scared of getting smoked by everyone there
