Solo Report

Welcome to the last month of the 2021 solo season or should I say welcome, welcome, welcome to the last month of the 2021 solo season? 🙂. Hard to believe we are nearing the end (if I ignore the cold, rainy weather and how early it gets dark outside…) So here goes:

Points Event 7 – Oct 3
Speaking of rain, this event was forecasted to be wet and boy was it ever. WOR and CKR cancelled, possibly being the wiser of us, but we welcomed any of their entrants. Even with the rain, we had 131 entrants, not bad at all. I personally much prefer dry courses, but have to admit I still had fun even if it felt like I was driving in snow with the sealed asphalt surface. Tightest competition was in HS where Nick Maludy edged out AJ Allen by 0.091 secs. Our Novice classes had the greatest showing with 14 each in both Novice Street (which was won my Robert Beck) and Novice Modified (which was won by Zachery Eavers.). Both Fastest Time of Day and Top PAX times went to Nathan Johnson with a raw time of 40.193 secs and a PAX time of 32.837 secs.

Challenge Event – Oct 23
Our Challenge Event was held a couple weeks ago on the only dry day of the weekend. We had 76 entrants get six runs in the morning to vie for the 32 challenge spots based on the top 16 by PAX in the two heats. Entrants were then paired and advanced by having the most improvement off their dial in time. Those who qualified got two runs in the first round and one run each round thereafter. In the end Richard Verret became our inaugural champion taking the win over Ron Schoch in a hard fought battle, and Bill Hughes edged out Nick Wilmot for Third/Fourth place respectively. Congrats to all, it was a lot of fun to cheer on everyone in the challenge.

Upcoming Events
Fall Fun Event – Nov 6
This event was rescheduled from Nov 7 due to the points event being moved.

Points Event 8 – Nov 7
This event was originally scheduled for Oct 24 but had to me moved due to miserably cold and wet weather on the 24th. The forecast went from cool and sunny as late as Wed that week to monsoon, windy, and frigid by that Sat during the Challenge Event. It was a tough call to make because we understand so many people have planned their schedules around our events long in advance and the unknowns of weather in Nov. In the end, the weather ended up just as bad as the forecast. Fingers crossed for Nov…. Good luck to all who are in tight battles for the year end points championships. (Best 5 events count, 4 events needed to qualify. Year end trophies based on number of those qualified in class.)

Solo Report

Welcome to the 2021 Solo Season!!!

The first event weekend is a mere ten (10) days away with a Test and Tune on Saturday, Apr 10 and the first of two Spring Fun Events on Apr 11. Two weeks later we have the second Spring Fun Event, this time on Saturday Apr 24, and the first Points Event on Sunday Apr 25. If I am not mistaken, the events on Apr 10, 11, and 24 are all on a waitlist at this point. Along that line, if you are attempting to register for an event and it is waitlisted, I highly recommend you go ahead and register as many get into the event as others have to cancel.

Speaking of cancelling, we have made a change to our cancellation policy effective immediately. Essentially, it states event fees will not be refunded if cancellation is made after the payment is processed when registration closes, Thursday @ 9:59 pm before the event. (Extenuating circumstances will be considered on a case-by-case basis.) Payment is not pulled until registration closes. These changes are being made improve our events and the product for you, the entrants:

  • Reduces no-shows, increases opportunities for those on the waitlist to get in the event
  • Will enable us to plan and advertise the run/work order (as well as the worker assignments) ahead of the event.
  • Effective immediately, includes the Fun Event Apr 11, Fun Event Apr 24, and Points Event 1 on Apr 25. (T&T already has no-refund policy applied) Entrants will be notified via email through MotorsportReg as well.

Sound limits – we will be enforcing a sound limit in the 2021 season, that limit is still tbd. Given the bowl created by the building, highway, and train tracks, it is difficult to get consistent readings. We will likely be collecting data the first couple/few events, letting those who are on the high side know, and set a reasonable limit. Heck, I even bought exhaust baffles for my Corvette which has a Borla catback exhaust just in case it doesn’t meet sound at other events.

COVID Changes:

  • Passengers will be allowed this year if both the driver and passenger have either a face mask or a closed face helmet with face shield down.
  • Loaner helmets will be available for a limited few and cannot be exchanged between drivers.
  • Continental Motorsports will be on-site for many of our events with lots of racing goodies for your habit including helmets.
  • Unchanged – Out of courtesy to others, you must wear a mask when you cannot social distance.
  • Unchanged – Speed waiver is highly encouraged
  • Unchanged – Pre-registration only.

See you at Traders World International Speedway!!!
