I used an app on my phone during the walkthrough to map the course.
Here's what it looked like from above.

I wondered about that.   Smiley

But she still beat me - and a lot of the rest of us - fair and square.  I hope she's proud of that!

This is slightly off topic, but who would I talk to if I wanted to take photos during the event, including during my work time if there are enough other corner workers.

Talk to the OD at the event, preferably early in the day before things get really busy.
You will need to take a spotter with you wherever you go, i.e. someone to officially watch your
back while you are focusing on the cars.

You would not be allowed to take pictures during your work time.

Very cute.  It will just be a nightmare for poor Mindy on Sunday morning trying to make
sure all the entries are correct in the computer before you run.

Last I heard it was at the Chenery's, I'd email Audie or Jeff to make sure.
56  General / Open Forum / Re: June 14th AutoX registration on: June 08, 2015, 12:10:17 PM

I went ahead and bumped the rest of the Novices too, as they were all familiar names.

With great power comes great responsibility.......   mwahahaha
57  General / Open Forum / Re: June 14th AutoX registration on: June 08, 2015, 12:03:25 PM
I registered as novice (just so I wouldn't get an error).  Now if I go back to edit my registration and set it to the blank I get the following error:

Unable to Complete Request

    Novice/Street Tire? is required


Well.... all I can say now is that for someone with admin privileges it's not a problem.
So I don't have any helpful advice for you, however you are now in CS without Novice index.   Smiley
58  General / Open Forum / Re: June 14th AutoX registration on: June 08, 2015, 11:52:53 AM
Shouldn't there be other options? If I leave it blank then it tells me to choose one, but I'm not novice, kart, etc.

I haven't been able to recreate your issue yet.
I created a new entry with a blank index class, OK.
I created another entry with Novice, OK.
I edited the second entry and changed it to blank, that worked too.

So.... there's something different about your entry that leads to your
problem, not sure what though.  If you select Novice and finish the entry,
then go back and edit your entry (there should be a link under your name
in the Entry List page), will it let you change Novice back to blank?

59  General / Open Forum / Re: June 14th AutoX registration on: June 08, 2015, 10:53:58 AM

I see Novice on that pulldown now, along with the karts.
60  General / Open Forum / Re: June 14th AutoX registration on: June 08, 2015, 07:49:02 AM

OK I take that back - there is a car class issue with the form.

I missed it because I selected a saved car from my garage so I didn't
really look at the form.

Thanks for the alert.
61  General / Open Forum / Re: June 14th AutoX registration on: June 08, 2015, 07:28:25 AM

As far as I know the car class bug has been fixed, as of last event.

Is the car class correct in your MAE account "garage"?
If so then you should just be able to select your car from a pulldown during
registration and the class and other details will be copied over into the form.

If none of that helps, then I guess I need a better understanding of the
issue you are running into.  (Can you get a screenshot?)

I noticed on the June 14 entry on myautoevents.com that there are 2 event dates, June 14 and May 31. Maybe that has something to do with it. See the attached screenshot.

Good eye there!

However that May 31 date is in a text block in the event info, it's not actually recognized
by the server as a date, just as text.   (In fact I think I can fix the text block.)
63  Results / Autocross / Re: Results 31 May 2015 on: June 03, 2015, 07:06:59 AM

Car 0 was taken care of; someone stepped up and said they'd take her work assignment.
I have no problem at all with that, the end result is we have enough workers so that's fine.

I don't know about car 150.
64  Events / Autocross / Re: Practice #1 on: June 01, 2015, 10:30:44 PM
After Sunday looks like I need a lot of seat time, when does the registration for the first practice open?

Normally registration opens automatically for an event at the end of the day of the previous event.

We have been having some issues with MyAutoEvents this season, this one continues to bug us.
I think someone just needs to give the event a kick to get it open, the authorities have been notified
so hopefully it won't be long.
65  General / Open Forum / Re: Finally made it to VIR, and had a very close call. But I caught it on tape! on: June 01, 2015, 07:41:51 AM
Wow, that was crazy. The driver was giving you a point by on the right and he went right where his hand pointed to!
Gunny

I almost did the opposite once, if you think about it when you point your left hand over the top of the
car it's natural for your right hand to go the opposite direction, i.e. steer you off the left side of the track.
Closest I've ever come to going off!
66  Events / Autocross / Re: 2015 Season Schedule and OD's on: May 25, 2015, 03:21:14 PM
sign me up for the 8/22 MEP event.   for OD
Thanks
Gunny

Just the Saturday practice event?  Or did you want to do the autox on 8/23 also?


Either one or both


Well that's something you will have to decide, lol.  Let me know.
67  Events / Autocross / Re: 2015 Season Schedule and OD's on: May 25, 2015, 03:20:15 PM

Maximum class size depends on the number of instructors available.
I believe registration closed when we reached that number, sorry.   Sad


Classing questions can be directed at the Competition Committee; click
on the link on the home page.  (You can also ask at the event, but things
tend to be pretty busy then!)
68  General / Classifieds / Re: WTB - NA Miata drivers side fender and/or door - red on: May 18, 2015, 08:02:43 PM
...Know there are a few folks here who may horde some cars...

Pretty sure this is me.  I have a red Miata parts car.  The fender and door are straight, but with faded paint (and a missing mirror).  Come to my house, swap me with your crappy parts and some cash or other item(s) of interest and they can be yours!

This is awesome! Looks like those old CRX's were too cheap. All sold out!


There's one under a tarp in someone's back yard on Huguenot Rd......

If you're tired of unreliable rustbuckets, check out this place.
   http://www.japaneseclassicsllc.com/

Just saw a segment about it on MotorWeek.  They are in Richmond!
Some of their inventory I have never seen outside of GranTurismo.

There is even a parts place right next door:     http://japanpartsservice.com/

Sadly, no MR2s in stock at this time.....

Still need an OD for the autocross right after the school (this month).

Also, who is doing timing / scoring for that weekend?
73  Events / Autocross / Re: 2015 Season Schedule and OD's on: May 11, 2015, 03:37:24 PM
Can I still sign up for driver school?
Yes I believe there are seats open

Wow Teamking I really love that video! Great driving but what I love most is the data and the map in the video - so cool! How can I get that "data" setup for my car/video?

If you have GPS data for your run, you can use software such as Dashware to combine it with video.

Your smartphone may be able to give you that data, if you can figure out how to do it.
I use a standalone GPS lap timer and download the log data to my computer.

The re71r makes HS civics faster than SS GT3s. Smiley

Well shucks... here we were assuming that was all driving skill.  Silly us!
