HSC 4 Hour Enduro - Retro CanAm

Postby Mark Fox » Thu Jun 28, 2018 9:30 pm

Hello out there,

Can Teams please confirm they are running in the HSC 4 Hour Enduro for Retro CanAm cars on 15th July 2018?

Date

Sunday; 15July 2018 - track to open at 10am for practice with race starting at 11am.

Format

4 hours Enduro which means that teams will race over each of the 8 lanes for 30 minutes.

Cars

Retro CanAm - Construction Rules are here: - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1254

I will be the Scrutineer - I am an easy marker - clearance and width will be the main issues I look at - .047 clearance and 81mm (HSC Rules) width.

Motors will be unmodified Cheetah 2 or Cheetah 4

Cars must be available for scrutiny by 10.45 at latest and will then be impounded until race start unless any remedial work to attain legality is required.

To qualify for entry to the race a car must be fully legal by 10.55

Teams

Teams will consist of a minimum of 2 drivers with a maximum of 4 drivers.

Entry Fee per Team is $50

The maximum number of teams is 8.

Procedural Issues

Starting Lane will be allocated by drawing lots.

Each team driver will drive on each of the 8 lanes for an approxamatley equal amount of time i.e a 2 man team will have each driver drive each lane for approximately 15 minutes, a 3 man team for approximately 10 minutes and a 4 man team for approximately 7.5 minutes (flexability allowed for any physical or mental issues).

Track Calls for driver changes at the 15 minute mark will be available - no working on cars during this period.

At the lane change after each bracket there will be a 1.5 minute interval. Cars may be worked on during this period.

Any part of a car may be changed during the race excepting the body and the chassis - if a motor is changed it must be checked by a scrutineer (or my nominee) for legality.

Any car deemed to be damaging the track must be removed and rectified.

All teams must supply a Marshall at a designated position at all time the race is live.

The designated marshaling spots are allocated based on the lane being currently driven by a team.

There will be a halfway break at the end of the 4th bracket for snacks, smokes, medication and comfort breaks as required.

Any Team nominations and changes to be submitted here - first in for team nominations to be accepted.

Please get your nominations in ASAP

To date we have nominations from: -

1 - FASTUFF - Mark and Stoo.
2 - OZ Products - Wayne and Cody Bramble

Steve will race if you change the rules, He doesn’t want to change drivers during the heat. Anyway I have to let my boss know if I am working on that Sunday or racin.So come on you guys decide if your going to come to HSC and race your cars which you have spent a lot of time and money on. This is probably the last enduro at HSC for9 months........

????

Not really sure I understand the Problem,..are you Wanting to race By Yourself or something ??
The Whole Idea of the event,.. is that it is a 'Team's Enduro', Not a 1 Man 4 Hour Sprint,.. lol

The concept behind 'Changing' the drivers DURING Each Bracket, is so Everyone Has to Drive All Lanes,.. Not have Teams that Have a 'Gutter Lane Only' Specialist as such.

I am sure in Many classes there are People that may 'Prefer' to have certain or perhaps even Many Aspects of the Rules Changed to Suit them, but hey,.. The Rules are the Rules and Same for everyone.

Talk to Fox,.. He is Running it,.. although I'm Not sure you will get much Joy,.. :),.. lol

Sadly, it Doesn't look like Enough people are interested Anyway,.. :( which is I guess just a wee bit Dreary :(

Good news though, Brooksy and Benno came and raced Retro's on the Big track with us last night and really enjoyed it and are Keen to come and race on the Small track with us Next time, but Brooksy, can't do Sundays, due to Work, Else they would have been Interested in the Enduro.
