Test/Tune Practice Day: June 21, 2020

A very limited track setup will begin at 10:00am.  This will be a good opportunity to remember how to drive again, and to make sure your equipment is ready to go for the first official club race on June 28th.  Newer racers can ask questions and get help/advice on car setups, driving, etc....

Some basic reminders:

  • Bring gloves
  • Stay 2m apart from others
  • Wash hands and gloves before and after track setup
  • Stay home if you are not feeling well

See you there!

I had a couple people asking me where to find used touring cars such as XRAY T4 2013-2019 type cars.  If anyone knows of any for sale, please let us know.

Another great club race!  Thanks to all the local racers and our visitors from the Lower Mainland who joined us for some great racing yesterday!

No Racing Next Sunday July 12
Sorry for the late notice but we are cancelling the July 12 club race due to some key personnel absences that we just learned about.  We will be back racing on both July 19 and July 26.

Thank You John Tsang
Big shout out to John for BBQing us a tasty lunch yesterday.  During a normal year, yesterday would have been Mains Day at our annual Speed Weekend trophy race.  And Jody would have been keeping us fed with his BBQ.  John wanted to pay his respects and take on the role this year, and Jody would have been proud.

Had some people asking me about my solar setup and where to get it. So here ya go. All you need is a deep cycle battery to go with it. With this panel I was able to charge my touring car all day and my 12v deep cycle battery was more charged at the end of the day than it was in the morning.

Hi all,

Brian Ashmore is offering some car setup work this Sunday morning for any of the newer racers.  He'll have his car setup station at the parking lot around 9:30am for anyone that would like to give their car a once-over.  Having a nicely squared up and non-tweaked car can have a big impact on the car's performance on the track.  The parking lot will likely be empty so people can run some test laps as well.

If you're interested in this please let me know.

Thanks,
Blake

Club Race Attendance Record!
Thanks to all the local and travelling racers who joined us today!  We had the best turnout we've seen in several years!

Track Setup/Teardown
Thank you to everyone for helping with track setup and teardown.  These are not fun jobs but we've been doing great work with 30 min setups and 15 min teardowns.  Today we were missing a couple of our key track personnel which impacted the smoothness of teardown.  Shawn Z has volunteered to help teach our newer club members the teardown process and order of operation.  With him, Brian A, and Paul G coordinating things it will go a little smoother next week.

Next Race is this Sunday, July 26
We're racing again this Sunday July 26.  We will NOT be racing the following weekend (BC Day long weekend) so come out and get your fix this Sunday.

Another Solid Club Race!
Thanks to all the local racers, up-island racers, and Lower Mainland racers who joined us for some great racing last Sunday!  Track setup was insanely good at 28 mins, and teardown was ridiculous at 12 mins.  Let's keep up those great stats.

Next Race Day is Aug 9th
We're taking the BC Day long weekend off, so we'll see everyone in two weeks on Sunday August 9th.

Full Size Vehicles In The Pit Area
As per the driver's meeting last Sunday, we need to improve our physical distancing in the pit area.  Unless you absolutely need your full size vehicle in the pit, please park it in the lower lot.  There are a few generators in the pits for power, so don't be shy to ask someone for power.


Thanks,
Blake

Record Setting Club Race!
Thanks to all the guest racers who joined us once again for some great racing today!  We broke an attendance record again which is amazing to see!

Tuesday Night - Car Setup Clinic
We're hosting a short car setup clinic from 7:00pm to 8:30pm this Tuesday August 11th at the parking lot.  We'll have some setup stations on hand to get everyone's cars squared up and ready for next weekend.  The clinic is open to all racers, new and old.  We'll also answer any setup questions racers may have.

Next Race Day is August 16
We're racing again this coming Sunday, August 16th.  Reminder that we'll be running two offroad classes: Buggies and Trucks.

Thanks,
Blake

yeah, got to say that turnout was insane. Good to see all the new racers out having a good time after a few slow years.

To the new and returning racers,

Thanks a ton for coming out to race with us. I can't tell you how awesome it was to see soo many of you in the pits and the track (2M apart) showing interest and support for the club. I hope you guys continue to enjoy racing and can't wait for you to experience a Speed Weekend event when covid-19 slows down.

DR. Speed would be proud of you.

Hot Race Day!
Thanks to all the local racers and traveling racers for joining us for another great club race!  Track setup was next-level at 20 mins flat - even in 30C temps.  The TC Stock main was one of the best we've seen yet.  Congrats to Adam for TQing and Avery for taking the win!

Thank you to the volunteer marshals in the Nitro main - it was very much appreciated.

We're racing again this Sunday August 23rd.
