The Not-A-Project Miata Project

Oh yeah, the Evergreen Miata took it's first turn at bat last weekend! Mind you, it's been autocrossed A LOT over the years, so it's not fair to say that this was it's first outing. First outing with this color of paint, and with new Konis and fresh tires, though. It did as-expected. Handled well, f...

Sep 7 Pointless Lakeland event

Jamie's not wrong. Nor is Steve.

Okay, really, nothing anyone has said is wrong. And we are listening. And we were formulating ideas for action before we even left the event. :geek:

Sep 7 Pointless Lakeland event

It's actually very hard to get a course over about 28 seconds at Lakeland, hence this course. It was an experiment, as each of our other Lakeland events have been. There's always a learning curve with a new site. We'll keep trying different things. Learning what works well, and what doesn't. I'll co...

Sep 7 Pointless Lakeland event

This is why flag holders have to be vigorous and energetic with the flags. Waving casually typically won't get seen quickly. Drivers are focusing on their line. This. Fresh corner captains are often too timid about committing to their flag. Eventually, most of them get it. Takes time and sometimes ...

R1 - What's eligible?

I stand corrected. But still, a Vee is and always will be eligible for one of those Mod classes.

As Steve noted, our prejudice is with actual karts, like F125's and such. And we've excluded them elsewhere. But, it doesn't hurt to further exclude them here.

R1 - What's eligible?

I believe FF's are in BM or CM.

Solo Vee is FM.

That's specifically why those things are mentioned.

Sep 7 Pointless Lakeland event

Yeah, it was a difficult course to work (and drive). And we dedicated 4 experienced people per run group to instruction. That left us with a bunch of 1st and 2nd time course workers, and some not-super-experienced corner captains.

But, we muddled through.

R1 - What's eligible?

I'm not opposed to changing the name. Would prefer to keep the acronym R1, so try to make it fit that. Race Modified or something. Yes, requiring 2-seaters to meet AM, BM, CM or FM rules out karts and provides some dimensional stability to weird home built stuff. As does the minimum 10" diameter whe...

R1 - What's eligible?

Okay, this was brought up in another topic. It doesn't affect a lot of people, and we're at the beginning of the season. Might as well fix it now. R1 says, "Any streetable car on race tires...." Need to fix that if you want to push non-street legal stuff into R1. And strictly speaking, we've allowed...

Good point. ^^^

Remind us of that when we ask for rule change input at the end of the season.

That's weird. It was working last night. Will have to get Ken to redo it.
