April 17th OTD Open Wheel Group?

Postby Elise » Sun Apr 10, 2011 6:34 pm

Hi all,

There has been some interest in having an open wheel group for the ope track day next Sunday. As of right now I have one entry, 2 others that have said they will be there (Marsh and Wise) and a few maybes (Devlin and Staudacher). If there are not at least 8 people ENTERED, I will not have a seperate group for you. If there are not enough people and you have a comp license, you can go out with that GREEN group, but it will be with closed wheel cars as well.

Hope you all enjoyed this sun shiney day!! See you Sunday!
Elise

Open wheel with closed wheel? Only bad things can happen in my opinion. Imagine a FV behind a non racer Corvette, with a non racer Camaro behind the FV.
NOT GOOD.

Dave, The blue group will be all licensed racers, in race cars; will it not?

If were just there to do some shake down laps everything will be fine, I don't think anyone will be there trying to set the course record.

Everyone has a choice to run or not to run. If people are uncomfortable, then I suppose they could wait until the practice day. I am trying to to accomodate everyone, however I will not make an entire seperate group for 2 cars (that is the number of entries I have right now)

Chris' idea of running the handful of open cars with the licensed race drivers group could certainly work.
We'll have the Blue flags ready for whoever might need them :mrgreen:

Even with a racer in a Camaro its an issue. My roll bar isn't even visible alongside the door of a fendered car. I already spoke with Elise. If the open wheel group doesn't materialize I will just come out for the practice day before the first May race.

Alongside?

OTD rules are passing only allowed with point.

But there is the very real possibility that in the Vee no one ever sees me, and ergo no point. Also makes it scary to go side by side in any corner.

Its scary enough being on track with DSRs because even some of those have difficulty seeing the Vee

On behalf of Dave Lewis, who's having computer problems, He felt that open wheels cars would be best off running in the comp group instead of the blue group.
