Parking Lot Cleanup Monday May 23, 10:00AM

Hi all,


With just over a week until our first outdoor race day, we are going to do a quick parking lot cleanup this Monday May 23rd at 10:00AM.  Please come out to help and bring a broom or blower if you have one.

We'll be laying out a new track design once the lot is clean, so you're more than welcome to bring some cars to run as well.


See you Monday morning,
Blake

First summer club race this Sunday May 29, 2022

This Sunday is our first summer club race if the weather cooperates.  We'll keep an eye on that as we get closer.

Track setup will begin at 9:30am.  All racers are expected to help with track setup.  An extended practice session will begin once track setup is complete.  We'll then run two rounds of qualifying, and mains, aiming to be packed up by 4:00pm.


See you there!

Great First Race!
Thanks to everyone who made it out for our first official club race yesterday.  The clouds stayed at bay which was nice, but the wind decided to play some tricks in the pits.  It wasn't quite a Kamloops or an Edmonton, but it was windy!

I was impressed with everyone's speed for the first race back on asphalt, and on a pretty green track.  Glenn A had the quickest car in TC Stock all day, but couldn't convert it to a win.  Avery B took TQ and the Win with some good runs, and Tom Y managed the day's hot lap with some tires from 2018.  Huge shoutout to Blair S who took his pavement game to an entirely new level, following up on a strong carpet campaign.  It was awesome to see the young kids running strong as well, with Brodie B, Matthew C, and Paul Y all putting in strong performances!

The new USGT Scale Spec class looked great and drew lots of interest.  Congrats to Rob F for taking top honours in that one with his Associated car!


Next Race is this Sunday, June 5
We are racing again this Sunday June 5.  We'll keep an eye on the weather and post any updates as we get closer.  We'll be holding a drivers meeting to get our setup/teardown routine back into top form, and we'll discuss some other details about the race season.

Fun Racing Again!
Thanks to everyone who made it out for racing yesterday.  We had a good turnout and some really close racing.  Brian A, Tom Y, Craig R, and Glenn A gave us some thrilling finishes in TC Stock which were fun to watch.  Big shoutout to Dan P who qualified 5th overall in TC Stock - very impressive work!  We also welcomed back Dan L who hasn't missed a beat in his time away from racing!

Track teardown was insanely fast.  It felt like 10 - 12 mins... so thanks everyone for working on that efficiently together.

Next Race is Sunday, June 26
There was not enough interest to run this Sunday (Father's Day) so our next race is Sunday June 26th.  This will be our last club race before our Speed Weekend trophy race on July 9-10.

Epic Club Day!
Thanks to everyone who made it out for racing yesterday.  We had a large turnout and some really good racing on a very warm summer day.  Big thanks to Tiny and Nospoom for making the trip over to run with us!  Some notable performances:

-Paul Y and Mike S entertained us with some good runs and close racing throughout the day while Chris B set a career effort in qualifying.

-Mateo B came to play in his first race in many months, ultimately getting into the B-Main in a large field of TC Stock drivers.  Awesome performance Mateo!

-The B and A groups featured phenomenal racing throughout the day.  Adam B, Brian A, Glenn A, and Daryl J all ran really well all day and gave us a great show in the B-Main.  Adam probably would have taken his bump-up to the A-Main if his hands weren't shaking so much....

-At the sharpest end of the stick, Nick F, Tom Y, Tiny, Nospoom S, and Craig R treated us to a great A-Final!  Nick took advantage of a little first-lap jockeying to move from 4th to 1st, a position he would hold to the finish, just two tenths ahead of Tom.

-Craig was once again the man to beat in Nitro, and Rob F kept his grip on the USGT title.

-The Formula 1 class was stacked with eight cars which was very cool to see on our track.

-Setup/teardown were very good, with setup taking only about 20 minutes.

-Afro, thank you for your generosity.

Speed Weekend July 9-10
We're off for the Canada Day long weekend, and we'll be back with our two-day Speed Weekend trophy race on July 9-10.  This race is a super fun event for everyone, of all skills levels, from novice to club pro.  We hope to see all club members participate and have some fun with us!

We'll be holding a quick meeting with USGT and F1 drivers to determine the best way to schedule these classes for the remainder of the summer.

RRR Summer Challenge July 30-31
Please make plans to join us for the RRR Summer Challenge in Richmond on July 30-31.  This is always a great race and we owe them big time for their huge support of Speed Weekend.

Big Club Day!
Thanks to everyone who made it out for racing last Sunday.  We had a very large turnout on a nice warm day.  The TC Stock shootout in the main between Craig R, Avery B, Gerry B, and Nick F was awesome!  Super tight racing.  Congrats to Dan L for making the B-Main bump to the A-Main!  Dan is starting to get his program back into form from years past.

In the B/C groups, Neil J, Joe F, Gord W, and Brian B entertained us with some close battles which were fun to watch.  Joe and Gord both put in excellent runs in the B-Main!

It was great to see Griffin and Brody Simister on the track, representing our youngest racers of the day!  Great to see!

USGT and Formula 1
We had a quick discussion with a large number of USGT and F1 drivers.  It was voted to run both classes every race day, but to possibly drop a qualifying round for these two classes on high turnout days where timeline is an issue.  TC Stock will continue to run three qualifiers every race day as this is our signature club class with the largest turnouts (27 entries last Sunday).

Next Race is Sunday, Aug 14
We are at the RRR Summer Challenge in Richmond this weekend.  Please join us if you can:

The next race at IROCC will be Sunday August 14th.

Fun Racing Again!
Thanks to everyone who made it out for racing yesterday.  We had a smaller turnout which meant for a more relaxed race day.  Shoutout to Blair S and Corey H for making the bump-ups to the A-Main.  Great runs from both these guys yesterday!  It was also cool to see Brian B set a personal best with 24 laps in his main.  In general racing was very clean and fast yesterday which was great to see.

HUGE thank you to Gerry Bernard for building us a new pit wall designed for quick assembly!  Very much appreciated Gerry!

Next Race is Sunday, Aug 21
Our next club race is this Sunday, August 21st.
