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!

Yep, that was a good race day.  Nice to see lots of people out there!

A couple people asked me about the race results.  You can find all race results here:

*** Looking for used touring cars ***

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.

Thanks,
Blake

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
