    October has a very strong lead and there are only a handful of spots left at this point. I’m really psyched at the response to this event!

    Tim… looks like we have another IS-F registered. Someone you referred maybe?

    Looks like I’m too late. What’s the cap on the event entries?

    You’re in. After talking with the team, we decided we can safely handle 60 and still have a good chance at 12 runs each for this event, so I moved 10 folks from the waitlist this morning. If others are interested you should still sign up in case we get cancellations next Wednesday.

    For our regular season competition events that start on April 20th, we cap at 100.

    We’ll be driving the October course. We’ll have three run groups of 20 cars each. Since this is not a competition, we won’t need as many workers and won’t have to worry about the timing system accuracy and all that – so I expect we will get thru the rotations quickly. And, if everyone is there early and we get the course setup fast, perhaps we can even start driving before 10am too!

    And yes, the weather outlook is pretty darn awesome for January!

    Sounds like August weather, only not as breezy 🙂

    I visited an old friend today… the truck and trailer… so I could take an inventory and collect the timing equipment and radios for charging. I have to say… I’m [u]really[/u] psyched for next week!

    We may have to do it again in February! Pre-Season Test & Tune on 2/23 maybe? 👿

    I’m now on the waitlist, but if you already took in 10 people from the waitlist this morning, I’m guessing my chances of getting in are slim.

    That would work very well. Drivers could stay overnight and do the 1st UFO event the next day. This is going to be a great season 🙂 I should probably order another set of tires now 😉

    Jeff, any other date for TT except 2/23 maybe? 🙂

    77 people are signed up. Looks like we’re back to 3 run groups and 7-8 runs each.

    Since I sold it on MSR as a 12 run event, it would not be fair to those who signed up early to increase the count by so many and reduce their driving time. Dave and I did the math and we feel we can handle 60 folks and still get 12 runs each. We will do three groups of 20.

    I’m pleasantly surprised at the interest in a January event. I guess it’s true… if you build it, they will come! For the next one, I won’t limit registration to 60 and just run it like a regular event sans competition.

    Simon, that is the only Saturday open that I can commit to an event. I do not have confirmation from Marina yet, but that is what I’m shooting for. Seems there is more than enough interest in these types of events.

    The winner by a landslide is October 2012. For those of you attending, here is the full resolution course map.
