  • Event 6/7

    After an initial checking and discussion about my harness setup with no roll cage and the front wheels rubbing the sway bar I've fixed both issues. Removed the harness bar and harnesses and installed steering rack stop spacers.

    Should be at Event 6/7. They're apparently running 2 events back to back? Am I reading that right or is it similar to the CTMP event where there is a school the day before the main event?

    It's going to be two complete and separate events one on the 6th and a completely new and different one on the 7th

      It's the same track both days but in different configurations. There's also going to be lapping held by the Grand Bend Raceway the Friday before the event to allow people to practice the two different configurations.

          As per Rob's thread: http://www.casc.on.ca/forums/showthread.php?t=30150

          It should be: "As things are looking now, we will be running the track WITHOUT the loop on the front straight; clockwise on Saturday and counter-clockwise on Sunday."

            Very cool, looking forward to it, I'll most likely only make one of the 2 days. Need to see if CAA doesn't mind towing me out there

              CAA won't drop you off and pick you up at the same location

                  Tom, it should be $125 now cause I think the prepayed deadline for $100 was last Friday. Here's the link for signing up: http://grandbend.lweb.net/index.cgi?...0Car%20Lapping. And yes I'll be there for the weekend.

                    Spencer, I just paid on the website, it was still only $100.00 for Friday lapping 9:00am.

                    I didn't see how late the lapping session run, as I won't get there until the afternoon.

                    Thx TomB

                      Have fun at Grand Bend Tom. I wish I was going.

                      I might see your at the shootout as an observer

                      Hopefully you got your cars issues sorted out. I have parts coming for mine but its not going to be ready for this season.

                          Great weather, forecast.

                          Swimming in the lake after BBQ.

                          Camp fire and racing tales, afterwards. Smores.

                          Can't beat this for a fantastic weekend.

                            Hey Glenny, I'm going to miss you! Why not go visit your brother and make a nice weekend out of it? (and bring your helmet!) What else are you gonna do?

                            The car was still on the hoist at the race shop when I came home tonight; new SS brake lines and new pads for the weekend. The Tranny rear seal started puking viscous black and clear gel; it's got to be fixed. My mechanic drove to a 4th place finish in his Lola chassis Ford at Honda Indy, so he was pumped. If I could ever get my fat ass into a single seater I think it would be a blast.

                            I changed my flight to Johannesburg to Monday, then flying back from Dubai in time for the Shootout, so I hope to see you there!
