ARA D&W #7 Sunday 17th August at ARC

Postby AutoSport » August 10th, 2014, 10:16 pm

Our ARA Team has discussed the date for the staging of our next D&W Event, which was originally carded for 24th August. In light of the International Circuit Event carded for the same weekend at Waller Field, we have decided to bring our Event one week forward, and this will now be held on Sunday 17th August at ARC Car Park. We regret the clashing of dates with other Clubs/Associations (but we did try to squeeze in a few more than the 52 weeks in the year, but this was not possible).

The briefing meeting will be held on Wednesday 13th August at the Chaguanas Central Reg. Indoor Sport Arena, fro, 7:00pm. Due to the short notice, the Conference Room we normally use was already booked, so we shall be using a smaller room at the same location. If we can be advised before hand, by those who shall be participating, we can have entry forms partially filled out and receipts written up.

We remind all that as of this D&W # 7 Event, you must declare your Class, which will be your fixed Class for the rest of the year. Except, in the first instance, for those who choose to run in the “Progressive Class”, where competitors are allowed to freely move up, should they determine that they can improve their current Class times. And if we have in this Progressive Class, competitors running different times, then they will be run using the “Dial-Up” system.

In the second instance, new competitors will be allowed two events to confirm their Class.

We also confirm the staging of the Fund Raising event, the Celebrity Drive for Cancer in collaboration with Pudgy Productions and the T&T Cancer Society and the CDA, and AutoSport Racing Association, on Saturday 16th August at Pier 2, Chaguaramas. This date was agreed upon before our change of our original date, one week earlier than originally planned, so WE shall be making the sacrifice, especially for the cause.
“No one has ever become poor by giving.” ~ Anne Frank.

And we move back to ARC Car Park Arima, on Sunday 17th August!

Thanks Autosport for the decision to run on the 17th August.

Anyone can see that this date must tax your manpower/resources considerably, because of the event commitment scheduled for the previous 16th date at Pier 2.

I hope all would recognize the unpredictable stretch being made, so that we will not lose another month of D/W racing.

As small as this event is, it represents unchallenged best management practices to date.

And where are the newly exposed drivers getting their experience?

And where are they getting a chance to develop their cars, the suspension settings and shakedown to get out the bugs? The discipline and respect?

I think there is a mistake with 2nd place in open class. It should be Alistair Rahamut?

We had an issue with a cone being down before the run and one driver was wrongly booked for hitting the cone in final run off for 1st and 2nd.

Same class, 3rd and 4th, same cone issue that caused lane 2 competitor to go wrong,

Of course brought to our attention after event, so we have determined this is the fairest way to deal with this matter.

2nd place in 52 secs, right Comp No, wrong name... fixed.

Sign up can also be done on the morning of the event.

Be advised that you must try to make an early appearance by 9am.

Extra tents may be available, just ask, Registration $200.00, Tent $300.00.

Side note. The Autosport Team will be in Pier 2 on Saturday 16th for the Cancer society event the day before D/W, if you attend this, you could also sign up at that point.

Fuh real,dem men use to come and put it down on some of the 'faster cars' out there.


On a separate note,
D&W is becoming a little too predictable,don't want to call it boring.It needs new courses and perhaps different venues from time to time if possible.
Nonetheless,the Autosport team has and continue to put on great events for both competitors and spectators.

totally disagree that the event is too predictable. i believe the new time bracket racing is making it a lot more competitive than groups cars based on hp and mods.

It's very hard to get a big enough venue to run a heads up competition like what takes place at D&W also because it is bracket racing, you cannot simply switch the course

I agree to an extent, the spectators seem to enjoy the familiarity of a static layout. but it does get a bit tedious.
it'll be great if we have other locations for the event, although I don't know where other than pier 2 carpark :/

for some reason or the other i dont think Aaron understands bracket racing, because you cannot have 4 cars qualifying for a group an 2 of guys keeps breaking out by a one second or more.

if u wana call that competitive then go rite ahead.

simple.

well then the guys are in the wrong group. At yesterday's event, you had to call the class you are fixed to for the rest of the year. If you break out (run a faster time), you are out...there were some amendments to the rules to facilitate technical wins that took place in the past.

as a competitor i have no issue with the way the events are run currently, my only problem is men who intentionally sandbag

"Sandbagging" is a part of bracket racing. Especially if you get into a bracket and then get quicker as the year goes by. What you want the person to do? Lose their championship points gained over the year or just hold back by a fraction of a second to finish with a perfect time?

All this was discussed at the briefing. ..im speaking about men who are capable and have been running faster times in practice etc but choose to run a slower class...

Anyways back to topic. ...I dont see thr event as becoming boring

I guess you know first hand about men that are running faster times but still in a slower class.
Sportsmanship is hard to come by these days.


Please do continue....

But i see some other guys share the idea for a different venue.
The course does not have to be mirrored at another venue all the time.Take the stadium event last year for instance,times were added together from both lanes to get one run time.
