    2 sessions actually

    No kidding about the rain on the way home. I need to install some drainage in my floor.

    Great event by the way and big thanks to all who organized, helped out and volunteered!

    It had a bit of everything - track competition, dragsters, autocross, skydiving, and possibly the largest acreage of neon Spandex ever to hit Ontario.

    The question obviously comes up because of a less than ideal looking forecast

    you could get a 24 hr permit and insurance for $20 ....

    Re: Event 6/7- concurrent WOSCA autoslalom

    Just wanted to drop a line and thank the time attack crew (Chuck and Gary et al) for inviting WOSCA to run an auto slalom event concurrently with your Grand Bend event on Sunday. You've got a great group of competitors who, like us, love to talk about our cars and our particular disciplines.

    Thanks again.

    We run rain or shine. We take a break if there is lightning in the area.

    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!

    Never originally planned on making this before my car broke or actually I broke my car would be more accurate so I have something else going on this weekend with the family otherwise I might have made the trip, have fun

    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
    It's 9am-4pm.

    Tell me how to sign up please!

    Are you going this weekend?

    Thx Hope to see you, TomB Oo=[][]=oO #33
    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.

    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.
