Kes, worry not my friend. "sharelickssingh" will become "collectlickssingh" soon enough!
consider this his free pass to reign :lol: :lol: :lol:

On another note, I am certainly going to be up for the next event in December IF ONLY to see Porny and Ronnie duke it out PROPERLY this time.

( So Faisal still not answering the phone??)

This runningforlanedensayin'1runonly ting ent right. We all know it's best of 3. Sean and I even ran best of 3 in the rain (but ended up being best of 2.5)


Oh boy here we go again - bottom line is the respect for each other that competitors have displayed.
And yes that best two in three will be implemented in the finals- sorry we cannot have a 2.5!
And we promised to be set up early and we did. Now we will ensure a true mirror image and equal distance left or right.
And the lamp post will be well protected next time! Have to look at the NASCAR "soft-walls"!

OH, Oh, guardbooth out of the way, have to make some signs to say "stay of the containers"! :wink:

Great to see all of the serious competitors appreciating the driving challenge that this Event really is all about.

Sean sharelicks...much respect as usual. The new ride is porntastic. Whoever coined that one gets a clap.

Great driving by Kester and the red Ek hatch (whos is that ??), Fixables... we will let you let some sleep next time.... I go buy you a drink at Tequila Twist !

Papprazzi... it happens and this is the BEST venue for it have happened... you pushed that car hard in harsh weather in the name of Sports and Sportsmanship... you are a rare breed. RESPECT.

All in all... great showing by the Evo's and Subarus... you guys give us a target to shoot for... :p



The red hatch was either Daryl or me, we ended up sharing the car lol

I think the only problem with this event that caused chaos in the timing tent was that the majority of the cars qualified in the wet, hence when the sun came out people started breaking out of their brackets. But you can't control weather and the event was still great! looking forward to the 11th

There was NO Chaos in the timing tent. We recognized what was playing out but some drivers just did not, hence our original statement from way back at the briefing meeting - you will be placed in a bracket, and if you so wish, we are prepared to allow you to go up to a higher bracket.

This was explained to many drivers when they came with queries. NO way can it be fair to run in a bracket, break out from the bracket time by a wide margin and expect to win, and I say this applies to BOTH competitors. But all of this will be documented prior to the next Event on 11th Dec. and again explained to all competitors.

Well, you know, the time to wash his ass out was last sunday, there was enough water for that.

Rawle, this isnt really a new event, this type of racing is a form of autocrossing called SOLO PRO in the US, u just have a slight variation of it. Eventually you will get something together that works for everybody.

It was still a heck of a lot of fun though and I will be coming again in the future, unfortunately I dont have any tyres left. So until nexx year.... :(

Rawle, my only issue with the event was knowing what was going on. I learned the hard way NOT to rely on the announcers. After my group ran, I noticed quite a few cars doin sub 60 times so i figured with my 61s, I was out for sure. When I heard the announcer (linzi) say 'if you slower dan 59 den yuh not makin it to de nex rounds' I figured ok cool, and left (had minor car issues and had to head south. Nex ting Narend on the phone tellin me they callin me to run. I done reach chaguanas. Seriously, whats the point of announcers if they talkin crap??????? I did not bother checking the tent because everybody there always busy, and isnt the point of announcers to update people? While i had no chance of winning, it was very disappointing to know I could have gotten a chance to run again and missed out. That pretty ruined my day............

Next time let us know who to go to for accurate info

Because of the varying conditions, it was near impossible to have competitors set realistic times then be classified. We took what they put down and placed in respective brackets. Only to see some doing times 2 or 3 secs. faster, or in some instances slower. We recognized some were cutting the course, not necessarily deliberately, and thus the variations in times.

We explained this to all who questioned their times/class placement – some understood, others had too much water in their brains.

We will publish some notes on determining win/loss, penalty points to be added for bouncing cones, braking the time bracket.

At the end of the day we have absolutely no interest in favouring one competitor over the other – and many who came to the control tent to “argue their point” can attest to this. Note that what we are doing is combining areas of drag racing with dex to come up with a whole new concept. And this will take some time to be perfected.
(Can you do that among motor racing people???)

I really have to learn about this bracket and break out business, but at the end of the day i had a great time. I came up with a car that could just rev clean to around 6500, did not intend to race, told them dont bother to scrutineer the car, when the rain came, I had them scrutineer the car, thinking; with that amount of rain, very few would be able to go fast. When qualifing came around, had to short shift at 6000, did 54 +/-. then car started running clean, ran and got bumped to GP4, then apparently got disqualified because I somehow broke out there also. Went home a happy man, from wondering even to drive the car to the track, to getting disqualified becaus car too fast for class. God is good, a bit puzzling, but good.

Good reading, but what you did not hear was the announcer also saying you was breaking out the age bracket, 63 or whatever running against 33 and still "embarassing" the pants off the younger drivers. You were repeatedly proving the point that one can have a fast car, but you better know how to drive it.

The break out is very simple, once placed into a bracket, if you go faster than the lower limit, you lose. We have to have some limit here, else at the end of the day we will have all sorts of faster times eating up those who are correctly placed. The conditions on Sunday made a mockery of having most drivers post consistent times.

And Loco I understand but boy he is a fierce competitor - if it was you who was sick on Sunday he woulda surely find somebody to baby-sit! Kept jabbing me to come sit with him, but politely refused.
