FAST Classic - Mar 23 @ Brooksville

Postby Loren » Tue Feb 26, 2019 11:22 am

FAST Classic mode engaged!

This is a Classic event, which means fewer entries, more runs and no formal novice instruction. We're allowing "some" novices and even a couple first-timers at Classic events now, but in very limited numbers. If you're one of those people, you might want to register earlier than usual.

We'll be providing lunch for all registered drivers and guests at this event.

Registration is open until March 18. Y'all know what to do.

This event is at Brooksville, so pre-registration is required for ALL drivers and guests.

I was saying that less than 20 people are registered, and y'all need to get with the program!

But, I am working up a pretty cool course.

No uber-wagon for me this time.

This one's sold out! We even added a few extra entries, you know, for sentimental reasons. Still sold out.

I think I almost had the course finished last week. Then I got distracted with preparing for the March 9th event. Then all the fuss with Brooksville. So, I have to get back into design mode.

After I take a nap. :wise:

The course has been all approved and stuff. And it's got wiggly bits in it. Who doesn't like wiggly bits?

Sorta yes, sorta no. There will be a 4-foot gap between those cones. It's just a wiggle.

BTW, this course has mostly been done before. Just reworked it to fit this end of the runway.

There is currently ONE opening for this event if you know anyone who's itching to get in. Otherwise, this event and Apr 7 are both maxed out! :o

First classic event for me in a while. Get to test out my new helmet and possibly new rear aero if I'm not lazy this week.

That's the plan. I need to get a rivet gun.

I'm still hoping some kind soul will offer me a ride. I'd hate to have to jog the course...that would suck.
