VCMC Alumni Invitational Team Event & BBQ July 1, 2011


  • VCMC Alumni Invitational Team Event & BBQ July 1, 2011

    VCMC is inviting all past, present, and future members to the VCMC Alumni Invitational Team Event and BBQ on Friday July 1, 2011. The goal of this event is to reunite as many old-time members for some tire shredding fun, so dust off the Rolodex and drag out as many of your old autocross buddies as you can.

    Pre-registration is available on Karelo. Registration is available the morning of the event, but we encourage pre-registration on Karelo to minimize delays and save you money!

    For current members, the fee for pre-registered entries is $30. On-site registration is $40. For brand new members, this qualifies as your first free event. Sign up below to claim your event credit.

    Membership is *required* for this event and is available on-line for $50 (only $40 before March 31). The entry fee will be waived for renewing members who: a) held a VCMC membership prior to 1997 or b) have not held a VCMC membership in the past 5 years. Sign up below to claim your event credit.

    Helmets are required (minimum Snell 2000). Loaner helmets are available. Drivers must have a valid drivers licence or permit. All vehicles must undergo a technical inspection at the event.

    Supplemental regulations are available online.

    The morning session will be practice runs to allow competitors to shake off rust and "scrub in" their 20 year old slicks (bring your own Formula V spray). Official competition runs begin in the afternoon and will be scored on best PAX time with penalties. Drivers will be divided into three teams: Alumni (pre 1997), Newbies (2007+), and Senior (everyone else). The team with the best PAX score (average PAX time of top 5 team members) wins the 2011 Invitational.

    The BC Driving Centre has a strict sound limit of 92dB. In most cases this means full exhaust system with a quiet muffler and sound insulation for race engines. Baffles and turndowns are good to have on hand.

    We'll be firing up the grill and serving up some barbeque during the event. Free for current club members, but sign up below so we know how much food to bring.
