ARA D&W #4 and Drift Competition – 19th May at ARC.

Postby AutoSport » May 8th, 2013, 11:48 pm

Regretfully this is one of the very few occasions when we do have two
events clashing on the same day (with TTRC) but this was unavoidable.

As we start off in May we come to our Fourth Drag and Wind Event for 2013, and 3rd Drift Class Championship Run.

Event is carded for 19th May with briefing meeting on Wednesday 15th May at MOSPORTT.

We just might be lucky to have another Car Dealer sponsoring a very competent driver in a very attractive ride!

A lot has been said about the breakout times especially as it related to the 2B Class. Our committee has discussed this matter at length and has decided to confirm the breakout times from this event in 1B and 2B will be 56 seconds, 3B 55 seconds and 4B 54 seconds. This in light of the suggestions that times to run the course for 2013 may be 2 seconds slower than 2012…. Yes, we all note some of those times being run by competitors OPTING to stay in 2B…..

We remind all that as of the 3rd Event, where you ran will be your confirmed class for 2013 with all points earned at the first 3 Events being carried for the remainder of 2013. If one wants to move to any class as of now they are free to so do (providing that this is within the Class rules), but will NOT be permitted to take points earned with them.

We note the concerns with starting on time and completing our Drag and Wind competition, and then being able to quickly move over to the Drifting Class Competition. Here again after much discussion, we shall make every effort to have our infrastructure and timing equipment set up by 10:00am. All cars that have been successfully scrutineered will then be allowed to start their first sector of practice runs. We then stop at approximately 11:15 am to have our formal drivers meeting. Competitors not present at the end of this meeting will be debarred from participating on the day – this relates to both D&W and Drift competitors.

We look forward to the fullest cooperation of all participants in achieving this goal.

We are also simultaneously working on the Valvoline Tobago Wind Up! See separate release on this Event later tonight. And then the July Box Kart Derby being staged in conjunction with the Arima Borough Council.

^^ Most important thing is that it started.

However, I cannot relate to a malfunctioning time board.
That really bothered me for D&W 3 and I am 1000% sure that it won't happen again.


I will be there on the 19th, and this time I walking with my chair :oops:

Re the Boards, there are several joints on the cable and we kept checking each and every one. And then politely had to ask someone to please move your car wheel off the cable. When we could not find a problem there we detected another flaw in a box at the back of the computer. The entire system and Boards worked perfectly in St. Lucia. And a new scoreboard cable is being ordered.

For the question on running just under 54 secs. in 4B, with a breakout time of 54 secs., you have no big decision there but stay in 4B, since as you say, you just cannot compete against the best in 4A.
And this is what actually happens in Drag Racing.

Well, well, well, we actually have competitors complaining about too much consecutive events, and also apologizing for a clash of events....

And we are yet to have a dedicated Motor Racing facility!

The end is in sight!

That vagabond stepson walking in the wrong direction!

If we have pre-sold tickets we just might start to have scalpers too!

We do have a good problem to deal with, too many competitors and just now, too many spectators in this "major motor racing facility" in this so-rich country!

But fear not, certain discussions are taking place that just might not allow any escape from the reality of all true and genuine bodies coming together.

Our prayers will be answered.
