2013 MCO Ice Race - Feb. 24

Brrr! Discuss any crazy notions of winter racing here.

2013 MCO Ice Race - Feb. 24

Postby gkierst » January 10th, 2013, 7:20 pm

Hi,

Jay asked me to put up a quick post announcing the Ice Race. We hope past participants will return and not only that, but that they have been telling all of their friends how much fun this event is. Details will be forthcoming, but things will be done much the same as they were last year. There has been talk of a new addition to the schedule, but I'll let Jay share that with everyone.

If you are planning to attend, please email Jay to let him know: saslove5_at_rogers_dot_com

Feel free to post questions and feedback in this thread. Trash talk is also encouraged.

UPDATE:
Here are the 2013 MCO Ice Race Rules
Sign up today, Online Registration is here
Regards,
Greg

Just signed the papers to a one race deal on a top shelf team. Apparently one of their primary drivers got a better offer that included a trip to vegas the same day. Enjoy your sunburn JP.. and thanks!! :thumbup:

I've scheduled a snowstorm for the 24th so I can race on the 3rd when I'm back in Ottawa.

Just spoke with Jay. A temporary membership is available for $20 and you have a month to decide if you want to use that as credit towards a full membership.

I took those pics and have about 20 more real good ones from that mud bowl event. It was more fun watching it than
being in it. Still think I'm in this year. Steve Greiners entering a Saturn beater.

As for scoring, the rules specify that we supply our own score keeper. Can this score keeper be subbed out?

ex.: Brodey does scoring while I run,
John does scoring while Brodey runs,
Leonardo does scoring while John runs,
and finally I do scoring while Leonardo runs

Is this score keeper also responsible for keeping track of total pit time, and pit time minimums?

Emailed your question to Jay:

Jay wrote:Depending on how many people we have, hopefully lots, the teams will not have to supply people.

I will hopefully have workers assigned to log cars on and off the track. If we have extra people on the teams to help with this great.

Not everybody shows up sometimes.

To answer your question.

When a car leaves the track the off track marshal will log the car number's time in their book and on the car's time card (time card stays with the car, and is provided). When the car goes on track, the on track marshal will log the car number's time on track in their book and on the car's time card.

It is the responsiblity of the teams to be sure they are off track the required amount of time during the race to avoid penalty.


HOPEFULLY ALL THE WORKERS WILL SHOW UP. I NEED TO FILL TIMING FIRST, ON AND OFF TRACK MARSHALS SECOND.

If those positions are covered , the teams should be in the clear , but helping out with crowd control while you are watching and other things as they come up will be helpful.

PLEASE REMEMBER THIS IS A FUUUUUUUUUUUUN EVENT. WHEN EVERYBODY HELPS OUT, IT MAKES IT MUCH EASIER.

Can someone post up the rules to a non-fileshare site?

I can't access the rules due to firewall...
