New run groups

We are going to modify our run groups, similar to what NCRC does. We will have:
Solo/DE - For relatively new drivers, passing with point-by only in certain straight sections of track. Stock seat belts OK.
Point-by - For drivers with more experience, passing anywhere on the track with a point-by. Stock seat belts OK for 2000 & newer cars unless engine mods or race tires.
Open Passing - For very experienced drivers & faster cars, passing anywhere on the track with no point-by required. 5 or 6 point harnesses.
Race Group - Wheel to wheel racing, typical racing equipment required.

We will also have the lunchtime Intro group, the cheapest way you will get your car on a race track.

Looks like Pete and I will be driving our Dad's GTV (red 84) this event. Dad (Art) hurt his hand and needs to sit this event out and offered us his car since ours is in pieces still (120 pounds lighter).

It's looking like warm weather at the track, which will be nice this time of the year.

That was a fun weekend. The weather was perfect. Most of the day we all wore T-shirts. The early mornings and late evenings were a bit nippy, but nice. Two years ago at this time it never got above freezing.

Doug's GTV (17) ran well and finished the weekend without issues. A refreshing change.

Art's GTV (84) had some minor issues. On Saturday morning we had some issues with the ignition timing that eventually got sorted out and we had a well behaved race car after that. Me and Pete shared the car and were both getting similar times in the 1:47 range. On Sunday's timed event I spun-out in turn one bending a tie-rod end that ended our weekend. Unfortunately this prevented Pete from getting a timed lap.

The shift in upper management was, as always, apprehensive. Terry, Mike and Paul (is that everybody?) proved themselves worthy of the task and we had a smooth, well run event. The most notable executive decision was the attention to the clock. We started the day earlier and ended it later, getting us all more track time for the same amount of entry fee. YEAH!

After the scheduled events were over, there was about 30 minutes of track time left. I'm not sure what type of "track" it was. It may have been open passing or point-by, but was available to all cars and drivers. Unfortunately only a few cars took advantage of the opportunity. I'm sure that once it becomes public knowledge more will take advantage of this added bonus.

I was in the new "open passing" run group. Although I have a fair amount of track time, I had never driven in an open passing environment and was apprehensive. Checking the mirrors more often was easy enough as was giving the faster cars room to pass. Most of the drivers were faster than me, but I did find a few cars to pass and found it easy to wait for a clean and safe pass.

I think I can speak for everybody when I say that we had a good time and we missed those that did not show up. I hope to see you all at the next event, Buttonwillow, May 14-15, 2011

As usual, great event. Those who didn't attend because they weren't sure about the weather in January really missed out. It was one of the nicest weekends I've ever experienced at Willow Springs! Good job to the new people who are running the events now too!
