I think you should push the race a week so i can come, only got to race 2 WCICS races this year. Maybe next year they will line up better with my days off schedule. Good luck to all that get to attend, Kamloops is a top notch race, one of, if not my favourite race to attend. Just remember to tech Wendes cars really well, guy likes to push the rules to the limit!!, Also make sure Chuck gets good service at Earl's, as no one likes a shitty bartender.

Although the 'official announcement' hasn't been made I wanted to let everyone know that I'll be running an official XRay Workshop on Saturday after the qualifying is done.

The workshop is intended for new and intermediate racers to get some guidance on things like basic setup concepts, chassis & spring tweak, the basics of droop and weight transfer and a few other important concepts. More importantly though it'll be an opportunity to ask questions and get some help with whatever you may be wondering about or struggling with.

The Workshop probably won't offer too much for experienced racers, but I would encourage you guys to show up and engage in discussion as it will help us all improve.

Watch for the official XRay announcement on Facebook!

See you guys in Kamloops!

Just a quick note, I have registered for 5 classes but 2 of them (Mini and Scale Spec) will be run by my son. I don't feel like it is necessary for me to create an additional account for him in the WCICS site so I hope this is ok.

Thanks!

If you create an account for him you will be able to use all the extras Luke has built into the system. Once registered you can see your lap times, heats etc all on your phone. I made one for Mason so he could check all that stuff out.
