Still trying to make this event but only getting space on the boat to come back on tuesday....

Was wondering why the entry fee is the same especially for the Trini competitors seeing that they are making the trip to Tobago and this is not even a competition event.
I'm guessing no competition no prize giving either?

so you saying you want to race for free? Or you want a subsidy?
You fellas really need to get out more............when you want to run in a big country, where you have to trailer your car cross state, rent a hotel for the weekend, pay membership fees and still pay an entry fee, you'd realize how cheap it is to race in T&T
As someone mentioned at the briefing last night, $150 is a rounds of stag on the boat to go across......

BTW, ARA also has to pay to send their team across to run the event, they have to pay to ship all their gear across on the boat as well, and they also have to pay for accommodations in order to be able to host the event

^^ You know what you talking about?

Right now we loading the fishing boat with the timing system and the PA system.
It will sail tonight and return in the morning for the timing display and all the banners and cones.
Last sailing will be for the entire crew and their luggage.

Rawle not going by boat because he allergic to Gravol.


Try and get you facts straight Mr. Mg Man.
And for your info, $150. is a lot of money because you can get 54 & a half liters of SUPA Gyas

Apparently you need to get some English classes cause no where i said i would like to enter for free.Was just asking that if its not a competition event and no prizes or rewards will be given the guys from Trini already have a alot of expenses to make the trip.
No needed to go out of state and all political.

You could also keep your stag,cause i don't drink.
Thanks for your input.

ROFL!!

Do you think the non residents of Rally Barbados expect a discount to enter? The entry fee is based on participating in the event, regardless of where you are from.

I have never heard of any Tobago competitors coming to Trinidad complain. The $150 to enter is the least of your expenses actually.

You must be new to racing ....

On another note, seeing that some classes have one car in one instance and two in another... I am suggesting that we make a bold step and run the competition according to the times run. Now we know at this time that is an unknown quantity.

So the suggestion is... after the first practice session, that cars are classed according to times run. Say the slower times may be over 40 seconds, yes the course is relatively short.

So you class cars that are doing similar times. those doing over 40 secs. in Class 1,
then 39 secs. in Class 2,
then 38 secs in Class 3 etc...

You sir are also miss interpreting my initial question.
It was stated that its not a competition event,so i was asking if there are prizes or rewards of any sort,hampers etc.I am just looking at what i'm accustom to getting at Autosport events which i think is value for money.
Not everyone is lucky enough to have sponsors or the money.Some have to consider tires,oil,etc..

Thanks again Autosport for making everything clear and listening to the competitors.Clearly it shows why you have excelled.

Too bad i won't be able to make this event as returning Tuesday is out of the question for me.

That's right.
Not just because you resemble a guy called Kirk means that you have to pretend you can drive like him.
That "Kirk" fella can really drive; and I think you are damaging his reputation and physical image if you continue along this path.

Also I suggest you get experience by competing in solodex first, because I know you won't be no SCCA champion :wink:

I very much agree with running this by time bracket as it's not toward championship.
The most difficult thing there is choosing where to pin the brackets.
I've not driven it, but my guesstimate is 30 or just under 30 as the fastest times.

the start will be adjusted to have cars facing the lights. - yes there are lights on both sides of the "tree"

MOTI,

What you know is totally wrong. That Kirk person you speak of is a total figment of your imagainaton. AFAIK he does not even exist. Even if he did, I doubt he would be given a passport to contaminate other Countries, yet alone endanger the citizens on their roads.

You need help my friend, serious help.

BTW, what does SCCA stand for? Sounds like some kind of rash :P

Not Kirk.
