I got $5 that Fairtrace's car will eject from the track in the sweeper entrance before 8am!

I sure hope no one is pitting by the front windows

There's 13 people pitted by the front windows.
Maybe we can bet on which person gets hit and how many times

I'll take that bet if you bet me $10 that you will be in a main that is not a vowel in TC.

Default Tech inspection :)

This years tech inspection will go like this:

For TC class, there is no limit to the amount of tires you can use.
The specified brands/type are all that can be used and will not go through a "pre-race tech". They will be spot checked during the day as you go through tech prior to your race.

For all classes we will be checking:
minimum weight
ride height
and battery voltage (4.25v/cell MAX!) (if you are over, sorry, see you next round).

We will have the rules posted at the track and at the tech table.

Might want to have someone with the ROAR approved blinky list checking for that as well.

man, that's a great layout for a race that's this compressed, so to speak. easy to get around on (no tricky parts), but very tough to set yourself apart from the group for this reason. if going clean is on the list of goals, it should be the priority here.

i'm still jazzed as all h*ll. (spec tc is going to be a mess!! )

Sorry, I don't see that anywhere on the official MWGS site. Can you provide a link?

You do realize that several real road courses run "anti-clockwise", right? For example, in F1 the Turkish Grand Prix, Brazil Interlagos & the previous track, Imola.

Not sure WHO told you that but it has never been the case, it is up to the individual track to decide. Each year there has been 1 or 2 tracks running counter-clockwise ussually (as in this case) it is to prepare for an event coming up such as US Champs or Snowbirds who seem to think Oval guys need pampered



P.S. if your did not pick up on it I don't like counter cockwise, but some times you just deal with it, the over all expeirence outweighs the details
