          Forgive me if this is the wrong place to ask this...

          I'm bringing a 2002 911 Turbo prepared to Street class rules to the event. This car has been recommended by the SAC to the SCCA SEB to be taken off the Street exclusion list for 2017 and placed in Super Street class. We are actually bringing this car to the SCCA National Champs in Lincoln as well. There we are registered in SS where we will run to collect comparative times then DSQ the total time. Same as what the ND Miatas did in 2015 and what the 2017 HART NSX will be doing this year in Lincoln (as well as a Focus RS in BS).

          We would like to run the car in SS at this VCMC event too...at least, we would like to run with the Street Group and the other SS competitors so as to have better comparative times. Is this something you can accommodate for us? The times could later be dsq'd or reassigned to SSP (I don't think we will be competitive there regardless). Or is this all too much trouble and we should just run in SSP with the Race group?

          Thanks,
          Ryan

            Hi Ryan,

            The 2016 SCCA - Appendix A - Automobile Classes - 7/25/2016, shows this car listed as being eligible to race in SS class.
            This is the list that we use for our car classifications for this season, so yes you can race your car in SS class for Blitz.
            Ps, I have changed your class and group in the registration data base.

            Dave

                I believe that will be OK, but I will need to confirm 100%.
                Stay tuned for more.

                  Debating heading up Friday night or Saturday morning...

                  If we come up Friday night, what time will the site be open to drop-off our trailer?

                  Thanks,
                  Shane

                    Hi Shane, Great to see that you will be joining us for the Blitz !
                    We will be setting up on Friday, so trailers could be dropped off on site between 6:00 - 8:30 (maybe later )

                        Thanks
                        I just got off the phone with the Airport officials and they said that due to an increase in security from Transport Canada, as well potential risks of unauthorized people accessing runways and other secured areas of the airport, they have denied our request for on site camping.

                        There are a few hotels in the local area, the Ramada being one of them - http://www.ramadapittmeadows.com

                        Sorry for any inconvenience

                          One more thought for those that want to camp, the Derby Reach camp ground is not far away... and at 24 dollars a night a pretty nice option

                          https://www.vancouvertrails.com/trai...-park/camping/

                          Camping is available in Derby Reach Regional Park in the Edgewater Bar section of the park along the shore of the Fraser River. There are 38 unserviced pads in total and you are allowed up to 2 vehicles and 2 tents per campsite. The site is open March to October and spots are available on a first come, first serve basis. The fee is $24 a night, or $21 for seniors and the disabled.
