Drag + TimeAttack Shootout - 10th July

Postby AutoSport » June 27th, 2011, 11:08 pm

On the 10th July, AutoSport Racing Assoc. will be staging a "Drag and Wind-
ing” heads-up TimeAttack type event at ARC. (We note that this will be a liming day after the Tobago Rally).

FORMAT:
Two cars starting side by side heading straight down the track from East to West
and then left car turning left (right car turning right) and going into a winding
course coming almost back to the start and doing a second similar lap before
coming to the finish.

The course displayed gives an indication of what is being planned but IS NOT
the actual course that will be used on the day.

Finish will be just to the outside of the start for each car.

Drag Racing timing lights and system will be modified to be used.

AutoSport Scoreboards from Wallerfield?? Perhaps!

Briefing meeting is carded for Wednesday 29th June at Larry Gomes Stadium at
7:00pm.

Cars will be grouped according to stage of modification, but we will try to keep
this as simple as possible.

Entry fee $150.00, but those who paid for AGP will be no-charge.
Those who wish for a refund from the AGP, please bring your receipt and refund
will be immediately given back.

Spectator parking inside ARC Car Park to the North.
Spectator entry fee is the grand sum of $20.00!

Only competitors cars will be permitted inside the “competitor area”

Invited to participate are the Circuit Cars, some drag cars that can turn corners,
the different clubs, Mini, Ford Evo, Subaru, and possibly a few R35’s.

I would have liked to participate in this, but my car will probably be down for at least six weeks. If I am not working on Sunday I will come and spectate.

Not a problem, we have some tour guides waiting to bring you out the bush if you go too fast down the straight and decide to cut your own track :lol:

Note the meeting being called for Wednesday 29th June,
(tomorrow) at the LG Stadium at 7:00pm.
Registration for this Event, and refunds for those who so wish from the AGP.

Nah man Faizal, every single event will lead to the next being even better, so you will let those who run this time set the bar, and we will definitely improve next time around.

And as I said we intend to have as many similar events as possible in short order.

The length of what we have shown here is approximately .9 of a mile.

Basic timing for an Automatic Accent was 1 minute 20secs.
For an EvoIII, still to be tuned, properly was 1minute 4 secs.

The speeds an r35 might hit into the first corner should be interesting. Also iirc the end of the car park where the first corner is is loaded with gravel. Will the area be properly swept before the event?

To answer some of the questions ....

We will make every effort to blow/clean the critical areas where the turns will be, but it can be interesting to have one or two gravel areas just to challenge the drivers!
Of course away from the fence or the spectator and pit area.

Once we do not have more competitors than we feel we can handle on the day, we may entertain late entries.

Basic safety as far as your car’s roadworthiness is concerned, and this will be thoroughly checked. No roll cages necessary.

But Helmets are mandatory.

Karts are welcome and then we will have them in their own class. It will be interesting to compare times.
