Re: Good Radiator Repair Shop?

There are an awful lot of ALUMINUM RADIATORS online for a Bug-eye. Pretty reasonable, too! I might be able to find you a spare old original one - I bought one of those aluminum ones for the street Bug-eye for which I have been accumulating parts. Putting it together "one of these days". Let me know ...

Yamaha Engine Question

Since I know some of us race cars with motor-cycle engines... Had a friend ask if I knew anyone with the shims that could adjust the valves on a Yamaha R6 Engine. It is actually still in a motor-cycle! Washtenaw County is an interesting place sometimes for motor-cycle repair. Any ideas?

Re: Antifreeze?

SVRA specifically states in its Rules that anti-freeze is NOT ALLOWED. I would have bet that in the early 2000's it was at the very least recommended that anti-freeze NOT be used in our Rules and Regulations. I think I can still find that file folder. And yes, I HATE the inconvenience of running wat...

LATE FEE

Just in case you are a slacker (like ME!) - when you download your 2017 WHRRI Credentials Application you may notice that there is a $100.00 LATE FEE for any License Applications received after May 3. Better get going as that date is approaching quickly. (Especially if you also have an engine to fin...

Re: 2015 Rules

Just an FYI... Another part of the process is that Rules requests are typically required to be made by the end of the year for the following season. That would mean 12/31/2014 for rules requests for the 2015 season. I believe the Rules have to have been finalized for Board approval before now...

Re: SCCA/WHRRI Novice permit questions

BUT... I believe he can race at any SCCA Regional on an SCCA Novice Ticket and ONLY at Waterford on a WHRRI Novice Ticket. A WHRRI Full License is accepted at SCCA Events (WITH an SCCA Membership) but I don't think a WHRRI Novice Ticket will get you in!

Re: Saturday evening festivities?

This does NOT all have to fall to he Club and Officers / the same old volunteers. In fact it can't anymore. In the mid - late 90's when Gari Chaffin and I were having some great races, I spent many Saturday nights crawling over Lola trying to find a half second or so. I remember the Big Bore Racers ...

Incident Reports

As many of you know - Waterford Hills Rules require any Drivers having Metal-to-Metal contact during a session to report to Tech. and fill out an Incident Report. I have been asked a few times over the winter "What happens to these - I filled one out but nothing happened...". Here's an explanation. ...

We have a tentative schedule that I would guess won't be released to the public until it gets its final approval from the OCSC Board. Our first version has already been altered... Really - we WANT to release it!

Re: ITS tires

Bruce and Christian are both on the Comp. Board and I would suspect a few other members have been monitoring this discussion. I think there is enough of a concensus in ITS for the Comp. Board to consider your request - we will make it an Agenda item at our next meeting, Thursday, March 10.

Re: ITS tires

Just a quick HEADS-UP! We agreed at last night's Comp.

Looks like one of those deals where we would gain more drivers with the ban than we w...
