  • May 5th CACC Event #1

    Hello Everyone,

    We will be gathering volunteers for the upcoming CACC Championship Event #1 hosted by VCMC. I have some of the Chief's assigned, and they will in turn form their teams of volunteers to help organize this event. Here are some of the them:

    Event Chair: Robert Lu
    Worker Coordinator: Ernest Fanthorpe
    Registration Mgr: Farzaan Kassam
    Tech Mgr: Guido Van Duyn
    Course Design: Robert & Farzaan
    Timing & Scoring: <volunteer>

    There will be a pretech night on Wed May 1st, see the Supplementary Regulations for details (should be mailed out very soon). The Chief's will be looking for volunteers, and I'll be looking for some course setup help on the Saturday May 4th, time TBD.

    Thank you,
    Robert Lu

    Tech Manager Guido Van Duyn ([email protected])

    Membership Fee $40 for a new membership to join VCMC Motorsport Club (if you are not
    presently a member of a club)

    Run/Work Order
    The run order will be posted after registration closes on May 5, 2002. This is to allow the computer system to apportion classes based on equal run group times. This is a direct result of feedback from last year’s series where drivers
    of certain classes had to work 50% longer due to the work assignments being set based on overall class grouping, rather than individual classes.

    Please be sure to check the timing truck after registration to determine your run group and your work groups. Work assignments will also be posted on the timing truck.

    1. RULES: This event will be held under the 2002 CACC Solo Rules and General Competition Rules as
    they apply.

    2. QUALIFICATIONS: All Competitors must possess a current valid driver's license, and be at least 16
    years old on the day of the event. Drivers under the age of majority must have written permission from a parent or guardian.

    are correctly classified in the corresponding CACC classification with consideration given to levels of modification.

    10. WORK REQUIREMENT: All Competitors must complete work assignments to be eligible for individual event awards and Championship Series points. NO WORK = NO POINTS

    11. OUT OF GROUP RUNS: Competitors needing to run outside of their assigned run group must do so in
    writing to the Chief Event Organizer prior to the driver’s meeting. Adequate justification (eg; work conflict) is required. This applies to Championship Events only. Out of group runs shall be noted on the scoreboard.

    Competitors running out of group may be subject to protest if a weather change influences results in their favour. If such a protest is filed, an appropriate time penalty will be determined by the Steward(s) of the Event.

    writing prior to the first affected work group time.

    14. PAX CLASSES: Two PAX classes will be provided, one Open and one Ladies. These will be calculated as per the CACC PAX Schedule. PAX times are calculated as follows:

    Time = (raw time x PAX index) + pylon penalties

    PAX drivers will run within their own PAX groups.

    15. NOVICE & LADIES CLASS: Novices and Ladies Competitors will run with their corresponding regular run group. Their times and points will be calculated separately.

    16. AWARDS: Trophies will be awarded at all Championship Events according to participation levels as outlined in the CACC Solo Rule Book. A Competitor need not be a CACC Competition License holder to qualify for a trophy. However, a Competitor wishing to earn points in the championship must possess a CACC Solo Competition License.

    17. SCORING: The fastest of any official timed runs, plus penalties, shall be used to determine final event rankings. Penalties shall be 2 seconds for each displaced pylon as per the 'Down-&-Out Rule'.

    Any missed gates result in a DNF (Did Not Finish). Non-CACC Licensed drivers will also be considered for event results.

    18. RESPECT THE SITE: Please do not litter. Keep your pit area safe. Any and all fluids removed from a vehicle must be taken with you at the end of the event day.

    Championship event.

              What does the COW do?

              Chief of workers (COW) assigns people to their work stations, checks that people have worked, makes sure the worker stations have flags & fire extinguishers, hands out radios, hands out run cards after people have worked. Assistant (ACOW) does the same thing as the COW hopefully we would not wind up in the same run group. The registration system generates the run groups and Farzaan tells me that worker assignments can also be assigned at preregistration.

              The only really hectic time is assigning people to various positions for the first run group, after that you have lots of time for the next two run groups. If you are interested I would appreciate the help.

                Those of you interested in doing Tech for Championship Event # 1 please note that I am recruiting five volunteers in addition to myself. We will work two one-hour shifts of three people on event day from 7:00am to 9:00 am, everyone will have a chance to walk the course. Wednesday's pre-tech will be from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at Bela Construction 1668 W. 75th Ave. Volunteering for these duties will require a commitment for both days as you will be exempt from further duties on event day, anyone is welcome even if you have not done Tech before, we will have the opportunity to train you at Wednesday night's pre-tech. I'll take the first five that e-mail me at [email protected]

                          Carol said she would be your assistant, as long as she's not called ACOW.

                              Yarko and I would be happy for the help. I already told Yarko he could be ACOW so Carol can come up with her own title for her position. :P
