Well, this will be the last one for awhile, and I like to help out Gerald with flagging the corners. However, I may need to join in the boycott as well.
Once when it was raining, they had the Track Day drivers go out early to dry the track...I was rather upset for being used in that way. Then at the last race they were going to do that again, so I got on the radio and said no, no we have track (slick) tires too. Hence the workers were credited for this Track Day....okay, time to cool off now.
Dirk, why did you have to get me started!
Woody,

Sending you a PM now.

Dirk

Talking

Photos are DONE!

I just finished editing up the Formula cars. Burning the CD to give to Mike K tomorrow.

I'll create a new folder in my gallery here on HT (Superlap) and post them up there. Mike will be oh-so-happy to get 100 e-mails about me posting photos. Heheheheh

For those of you that PM'd me and asked for photos - I will go through my PMs and e-mail 'em out to you in the morning.

Andy,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into taking and sorting/editing the hundreds of SLS photos. I bow to you my friend.

Well, I figure I must be doing at least C- work even without the monopod for my camera - the number of "keepers" went up for me for this event. Thanks for the kudos, DK. As I've said before, it's that kinda stuff that makes me want to keep going out and taking photographs.

$20 each just like at Super Laps. I'll set up the transponder at Start/Finish as part of it. Just see me at the skid pad. Hey, I might run the FD too! It may be the last chance to run with everyone.

Did the SCCA give you the green light?

I think Woody said (via PM to me) that Gerald L. said since they can't control what you have in your car, they don't care if you time yourself (something like that).

Tom, won't your transponder throw-off the timing for the LCCT and W2W guys? Or will you turn it on right before the SCCT guys run? Nevertheless, $20 with transponder set-up sounds like a great deal!

If someone else has a transponder like ours we usually just use one for everyone. If there is a conflict, we could always set up the transponder on the opposite side of the track (meaning infield area) and switch the pick up unit in the car to the driver's side. Maybe set it up near the skid pad.

Someone does because I've used my SLS timer before at SCCA Track Day (before they originally disallowed it). Great idea about opposite side of track! Now I wish I signed-up.

We have to send an e-mail to Ed K. because they try to keep the max count down (I think it was 14 - 7 per run group). If they only have a few then I think we can just show up at noon and sign-up (though I bet they'd let you in anytime). This is for the SCCT (Short Course Club Trials formerly known as Track Day). You're running W2W or LCCT though right?

Oh, I see. I don't have a roll cage, so they probably won't let me on the long course. I'll just play it be ear or maybe even send Ed K. a short email. How much do they charge? $50?

Here's a portion of the SCCA Track Day schedule :

12:35 pm Short track registration, tech inspection and driver's meeting (inspection continues to 2:30 pm)

1:05 pm Corner workers return to corners.

1:20 pm Long track timed laps.

1:45 pm 25 minute race for open-wheel race cars.

2:20 pm 25 minute race for closed-wheel race cars.

3:30 pm 15 minute short track session for Group A.

3:50 pm 15 minute short track session for Group B.

4:10 pm 15 minute short track session for Group A.

4:30 pm 15 minute short track session for Group B.

4:45 pm Release ambulance and clean-up.


The last time I counted they were up to 12 registrants (high turn-out for possible last event) for SCCT.

Hey gang,

I posted a handfull of photos in my user gallery here at HT.

http://www.hawaiitalks.net/photopost...ry.php?cat=511

The rest (about 104) are going to Archangel today to be posted up on the SuperLap Series website. When I get home today I will try to get the photos e-mailed out to those who PM'd me.

This might be a good candidate for NAM's monthly photo contest. Maybe even the history reflecting photo too.
