I'll be there, with one car or another.

It'd probably be easier for you if you just sign up there. Just bring an extra $58.85, or a cheque or whatever.

Can someone explain the run down for the day? Sorry, I'm a noob for auto-xing.
Registration is at 8:30 and then we start "racing" at 9. How many runs do we get to do? Are there prizes? Is there food? What time will it go till?

Thanks a lot guys!

Because of the larger volume this year (many people getting hooked) and possibility of nice weather, try and show up around 8am. Meeting/course walk is at 8:40 and the first car is off @9:00am. You get a total of 5 runs (1 practice, 4 real runs) lasting approx 1min/ea. Nobody else is on the track (layed out with red pylons) when you are. No helmets necessary. Bring a lawn chair to sit down and relax in while watching the other 35 racers until your next turn. No washroom facilities or food (Coffee Time about 1km away). Fun usually lasts until 1:00pm.

This is wayyy too sweet! I'm so excited about this
I'll make sure to bring my new camera and get some good pics of everyone as long as people get pics of me!

We should get the Sauga guys to meet up somewhere and cruise down

footage you say?

Wait until you see the in-car camera mount my buddy (///MP) made for us! He might be taking orders if anyone's interested!!! Good way to see where you went wrong and can improve for the next run. Hell it's just COOL!

Mounts?

Hey 03 Dinan,

We're both gonna be there. So have a look at the camera mounts we have. I'm sure you'll find the quality to be excellent. We'll take it from there. Ideally, I think he's going to make 10 units for sale if the demand warrants it. It should!

As for filming? Sure I'll let you take a run with my mount. Only 'cause you're a Max member!! haha. Or, you can always bring a buddy to film you either inside the car(hell I'll film from inside if you want!), or outside. I recommend both. You'll be able to see how you do compared to some of the more seasoned veterans, which I am not!
