So we are about to run our second Event for 2013 –
Briefing - Wednesday 27th at 7:00pm at MOSPORTT, Frederick Settlement Caroni. Event on Sunday 3rd March.
Just to repeat for some who still have not gotten this clear – competitors receive three “person” passes and two Pit passes. The three passes are for the driver plus two other persons. The two Pit passes are for the competition vehicle and a service vehicle – so, the person coming in with the competition car or service car must have a “person” pass.
As agreed at our last drivers meeting, we now include 10 points for the fastest competitor in Class, both A and B, and they will all receive hampers.
And we repeat that for this second event, competitors are allowed to race in whichever class they so choose with any car – once it falls within our prescribed Class rules. But from the third Event, whichever class you race in will be the class you must stay in for the remainder of the year to keep those points. You move with the Points earned in the first two events in whichever class you ran. Should you have to move to another class after the third Event, you cannot “carry” the points earned to the new class.
Again we repeat our effort to start at 10:00am, and when the drivers meeting is completed, we may very well not accept even those who are registered but come late. So we urge everyone to submit, or have their entry submitted by someone at the briefing meeting. We know that several competitors work offshore or “foreign”, so be warned….
We are going to be having additional support in scrutineering, so this will start very early also.
We note that some classes are well-subscribed, and will be implementing the following… Classes with up to 12 competitors we stick to the fastest-4 moving to the knockout rounds. Classes with more than 12 and up to 16 competitors, we select the fastest 6. Then we run this 6 in pairs and the 3 winners and the fastest loser then move on to the top four knockout runs. Classes with more than 16 competitors, the fastest 8 move forward, then the four winners selected to move on to the fastest 4 knockout finals.
In the past we had the competitors who participate in drifting, coming out at the end of the event and giving us some really interesting and skillful driving displays. As of this Event, Lube Tech has come on board to sponsor a separate Drift Class in competition. This will take place from approximately 4:00pm when we complete our Drag and Wind(ing) competition.
As stated before we shall be having a new PA system in place - courtesy Sham’s Electronics. And also a new concessionaire, one who worked with us while still at Waller Field – Café Café.
And also looking to have some special guests in attendance…. a Sunday School Class from the South, who will be attending a Motor Racing Event for the very first time!
And we indicate that the bushy area to the South of the Car Park has been cleared thanks to Kaizen Trading Limited – the intention is to eventually have this paved and then have the pits moved to this area and have a bigger area for racing… down the road.
The bush and rubble pushed to the perimeter was used to build a burm. The intention here is to have this as a natural barrier, and we now suggest that for this Event, we would like competitors to pay their normal $150.00 entry fee PLUS one Bougainvillea plant, that will be planted along this burm. This is optional, and if keen to support this initiative, you can bring the plant on Sunday or donate an extra $25.00 and we buy the plant.
Please remember the our permanent noise concerns and also discourage anyone from playing loud music in our pit area.
