I would say for the $10 fee, you would need the timing system up and running. If people are truly testing and tuning, you need to know your lap times before/after making changes. Maybe if you just wanted open practice for the day without breaking the timing system out could be the $5. Just throwing out ideas. I'm good with whatever. Waiting for Mother Nature to cooperate with us so we can do some racing!

Every idea will be given fair consideration. Let's keep it coming. If we are going to make it work we want everyone to feel comfortable with the program. There will be the times when the shoe is pounded on the desk in absolute refusal but we want to build a program that all racers want to be a part of.

Don't forget to check back at 7:00 in the morning.

OK, here it is. Based on every weather radar and different weather gathering site I can scrounge up and factoring in the various amounts of drama for effect we are making our decision. There are varying opinions as to when it will start but the common thread is it's going to rain so we are pulling the plug. No racing today! Event cancelled due to weather. Sorry for the build up and now the let down.

Lets talk some more about the parameters for a test day.

Stay tuned.

12:45PM and a light drizzle is falling. Just enough to make everything wet enough to not be racing since there is no chance of enough warmth or sunlight to dry things out. Temperature steadily dropping as well. I hate it but it does make me feel better for the earlier decision.

Sorry guys. Sooner or later we will catch a break.

Sacrifice a chicken or a virgin to the weather gods. Or a virgin chicken, if you can find one...

Just rain here. Reduced to 'watching' other people race over the internet via live Timing & Scoring. Ha ha...

Tomorrow looks better, might head down to Easley for a test 'n tune.

$5 to practice, no timing. If you get enough people in a group, they'll turn the timing loop on.

iPhones have a stopwatch feature and we sometimes use that to help time each other.

Since the weather on Saturday looks like what we always want it to be I am getting some requests for a bit of a test and tune. I'm not against it but have to check a couple of things before I can commit since my partner will not be available this weekend and I have been out of town all day.. I will let everybody know tomorrow afternoon.

Stay tuned.

Just can't seem to catch a break. Now the weather has shifted to 50% chance of rain starting Saturday morning or as it says AM showers. If that happens we might get some sunshine behind it and dry things out but if it stays cloudy we are dead in the water again. Sorry to delay things but I will continue to monitor and keep everybody posted.

If we can get it in it will be a 3hour for $5 open session without the timing system. Starting time weather permitting will be 10:00AM.
