1  General / Classifieds / MAGNETIC and VINYL numbers/letters for your car on: June 26, 2017, 04:29:35 PM
Jeff and I are making magnetic and vinyl numbers and class letters.

WHY? BECAUSE WORKERS AND TIMING TRAILER CAN ACTUALLY SEE THEM!

When you become a member of our club and most other clubs you get a permanent number.

Take advantage of that with magnetic or vinyl numbers and class letters.
 
MAGNETS
8" letters and 3.5" numbers
Square white magnet with Black, Red or Teal numbers


2 numbers and 4 class letters   (ex.     5 ES)   $12.00
4 numbers and 4 class letters   (ex.    35 ES)  $15.00
6 numbers and 4 class letters   (ex.  135 ES)  $18.00
8 numbers and 4 class letters   (ex. 1135 ES)  $21.00

Add $2.00 to any combo above for 6 class letter


VINYL

Autocross   8" numbers and 3.5 " letters
Track        10" numbers and 5" letters

Vinyl is reusable (2-3) times if you apply to clean surface and remove after each event.
RE-APPLY to the shiny paper they came on and keep at room temp in a dry place between events. 

COMES AS Individual letters and numbers in WHITE OR BLACK

2 numbers and 4 class letters   (ex.     5 ES)    $ 5.00
4 numbers and 4 class letters   (ex.    35 ES)   $ 6.00
6 numbers and 4 class letters   (ex.  135 ES)   $ 7.00
8 numbers and 4 class letters   (ex. 1135 ES)  $ 8.00
[/color]

Add $1.00 to any combo above for 6 class letters


ORDER NOW and we will bring them to a club meeting or your next club event.

You can pay by PayPal.

2  General / Open Forum / Re: Riding with your co-driver? on: March 03, 2017, 03:59:09 PM
After the board meeting and an hour and half discussion the board took a vote and it was decided, 6-3 that comp rule 2.7 (B) stands with no changes.

2.7   ENTRANTS
 
 B. Only the driver and non-competing individuals shall be in the car while it is on the course for competitive
      runs unless a navigator or instructor is required by the O.D.(s).

We will be adding a clarification to the as follows:

A driver who has participated in 6 or less events.

Thanks,

Audie Chenery

Hey all, (this is Audie not Jeff, FYI)

THIS topic is being referred to Engelbert, who is chairman of the competition committee and 1st Vice President for 2017.

I will bring it up at the board meeting, Thursday March 2nd. It will be discussed, passed on to the committee and a decision made, hopefully, by March 26th's autox.

TO SUMMARIZE EVERYTHING I'VE READ HERE AND HEARD IN THE PAST FEW YEARS.
 
WHY DO GOOD DRIVERS WANT TO RIDE ALONG WITH OTHER GOOD/CO DRIVERS?

1) when you ride along with a novice you are busy talking, pointing and praying. You are also going slow or   
    outrageously fast and out of control.

       Will this give you an affirmation that the course is indeed where you thought it was from your   
       pre race walk? MOST LIKELY
 
       Will it make you faster, MOST LIKELY NOT.
   
 2) HOWEVER

    If you ride on a course at speed, with a good driver will it help increase your chances of being more 
    confident thus faster?
    I know what I've observed and what it has done for me in the past, but I'll let you all answer that. 
   


A) I think the rules could be amended to allow for instructors to ride with a novice without OD permission.

B) I think the club can also rule that anyone can ride with anyone.

You have to decide if you think it is really fair for advanced drivers to ride with advanced co drivers. Because let's face it, that is the question.

3)  Is VMSC about bragging rights? YES

4)  Do you want to keep competition on and even basis as best we can? That's up to you all

     We went to a lot of effort to institute "RUNNING BY CLASS". It's basis is about evening the
     competition/pavement on race day.

     Will allowing advanced/co-drivers to ride with each other jeopardize that?


Just something to sleep on. I'll make sure an email goes out after the board meeting with what was discussed. 

Have a good one,

Audie Chenery
President - VMSC

8  Events / Autocross / CLUB MEETING MAY 17th on: May 14, 2007, 06:19:49 PM
Since there are 5 Thursdays in May I thought I might remind everyone that this Thursday is the club meeting.
What made me think about it was that I was talking with Gordon and said I'd "see him at the club meeting this week", and he said "is that this week?".

That has happened to me and I almost missed one last year. Five weeks in a month screw me up somtimes too.

See Ya'll there  (La Siesta)

Well, it looks as if we have a full house for the first race of 2007; I know I can't wait to get back in the little red "Weed Wacker". :bounce:

I !!!!!

1)     will be open from 8:00 am until 10:30am. At that time it will be closed and locked due to course design. This will be the same for the rest of the year. You will come and go throught the main gate for the rest of the day.

2)     you will sign in a gate 2 and . You will only sign once this year. :p
3)     at - NO SOONER

4)     AT - NO LATER

5)      Please bring a check for your membership and your perm number if you have not paid. That way you will get the members price of $25.00 and not the Non-Members price of $30.00.

You can pay this to me the same time you check in at registration. PLEASE HAVE IT READY!!!!! and it can be on the same check as your event fee. $25.00 Members, $5.00 per 1 Family member = $30.00 for the year. Perm numbers are $25.00 and have already been assigned.

5)     so you will be responsible for getting your car teched in the pits like last year. You must ready your car for the race and then put your hood up. and if you pass, he will put a small sticker on the upper most part of your wind shield on the drivers side.

25  Events / Road Rally / Math/No Math - Great Race on: January 09, 2007, 08:54:18 AM
Chuck,

Sorry for all of the questions but can you explain how you can stay on time at the check points. I was looking at the sample directions on the ODR website and had a couple of questions:

Instruction 14: average speed of 30 MPH for 36 seconds then change average speed to 45 MPH or

Instruction 24: average speed of 30 MPH, for 1 min and 12 seconds.

Since you are a navigator how would you ensure?? Can you explain (without math/calculations) what you would have to do to ensure that you are on time for each of these legs? And ultimately on-time for a checkpoint. I do unerstand that you will use two stop watches but they do not take acceleration and deceleration into account.

The reason I ask is that it takes time for a car to get to that average speed on the front end of the 36 seconds and the back end of that time when you transition to the new average speed. In order to be on time at the checkpoint you have to validate the time spent to achieve that average speed.

Thank you
Jeff
