    • Special note about Fridays & Mondays

      The last few Mondays there has been no racing to report. Usually 5 or 6 racers would show up but a couple of the racers would decide that they didn't want to race crash & burn rules or limited marshalling with a lot of track calls. For Friday nights the possibility of rotating the race order each Friday to guarantee that each Friday night race would get run at least a couple times a month, was discussed.

        why do you discuss Monday night race to run on Friday with out even asking the Friday night racers. You will end up killing Friday night racing also.

          Kevin,
          The inclusion of Monday Night class races were NOT discussed, but only the rotation of the races held on Friday Nights. For example one week Trans-Am would race first, followed by Group-C's and GT's. The next week GT's Could start first followed by Trans-Am and then Group-C's, or any other order possible. It was only discussed, I am sure it would be brought to everyone's attention for a vote next Friday. Sometimes how long the time taken to eat the Pizza and wings/other occasional foods affects when the racing starts which also affects weather a third race is held. The Idea was only brought up because of how the races are attended. Plus nobody has said that Monday night racing is dead, but only that poor attendance the last few weeks have resulted in no races to report.

          • Friday night race schedule

            I agree with Steve. There has been some talk that the Friday night race schedule should rotate, as to which race is first, etc.; because some weeks, only two races are run by 9:00 PM. Rotation would help insure that the classes are somewhat equally raced.

            The possibility of rotating in LMP's (now run on Monday nights), MAY be part of this, and involves
            the Monday night racers. I doubt that LMP's would leave Monday nights; just MAYBE be included in some sort of Friday night rotation. (with Group C, Trans Am, & GT1).

            As Steve said, The Friday night racers would certainly be involved in deciding their classes / race schedule.

            • Hey gang!
              Kevin maybe I could clear some of this up for you . I’m strictly speaking about Friday nights
              Now I know I have been absent the last few fridays but, the mention of rotation of the classes on Friday has been discussed. Unfortunately nothing came from it. Meaning we talked about it than it kinda fizzled away. If we were to change the line up it would have to be voted on by “the regular Friday racers” I will bring it up this Friday while I’m there and try and get more feed back.
              The problem is that we are not getting the 3rd race in all the time. We really need to figure out the eating part of the night. Either we start late or stop during the race to eat and that is what is so time consuming. Now it’s seems like we are not getting the GT class race in (3rd race) and some guys do not like that. I would like to run all 3 on Friday so I will be asking the racers how we could save time to insure this happens. For now the rotation will stay as it is until we as a group come up with a solution. I can think of a few ways of doing this but we can all discuss it this Friday night.

              Thanks
              Joe

                • Friday night Trans Am rules now also available on page #2

                  The Friday night Trans Am class rules are now also available on page #2 of this thread, under "Friday night rules".

                  The slightly longer version of the same rules are also on page 95 (posted by Joe), & page #98 (posted by Al).

                  It's nice to see the interest in this fairly new class!

                  • friday night racing 2/23/18

                    well we had a great night of racing!!
                    we also held a drivers meeting to discuss some ways to speed up the night. some of the things that were brought up were:
                    1. the time when we eat, we as a group decided that we will eat before we race. ron will order the food at 3:00 pm and have it delivered at 5:15. this leaves 45 mins to eat. so please if you want to eat YOU NEED TO CALL RON to let him know. this alone saves a lot of time.
                    2. we have decided to rotate the the order of classes. this is done by drawing them before we start.
                    3. we also ask that between heats that we don't crowd the counter. racers comming in and out need to be able to get there cars.
                    4. between heats we ask that the marshals allow the racers to get to there cars, and the racers do there best to change lanes ect.. to get ready to start the next heat.
                    5. there will be a 5 min break between each race.

                    we tried all of this and we were able to get all 3 races in with 12-13 guys and were done by 9:20.

                    now on to the results

                          Kevin,
                          I think you were misreading the report. Gt's were first, followed by Group-C's with Trans-Am last.

                          Steve "SABarnes", GT's were indeed the fastest by lap times, the distance of Group-C's raced was further because of track calls

                          • Kevin again let me clear this one up for you!
                            Steve I believe you miss read his statement. “ c-class beating gt1 Lap times?
                            He is acutely talking about lap times not the order that we raced the classes.

                            Kevin
                            About 1 1/2 to 2 years back it was decidedly to allow sidewinder pods in the Friday night c-class.
                            Some guys went and tried to build them with no success, except Russ who I believe has been running that way for awhile now.
                            About 2 maybe 3 months ago some of use revisited it and what to ya know they were fast.
                            Even I tried back then with no success and I rebuilt one the same way and it worked this time.
                            Kevin remember most gt1 cars weight around 77-82 grams while the c-class cars range from 64-78 grams. The only differences in that he motors are the grams of torque and maybe mag downforce.
                            Most guys run 21.5 rpm in gt1
