    June 14 2008 - Test and Tune

    What is a Test and Tune event?
    A Test and Tune event is a non-competition event with a simple and short (~30s) course and limited number of drivers (45 drivers), result in maximum amount of seat time for drivers to experiment with different setups and driving styles. Time will be displayed and announced at the event, but results will not be recorded or post anywhere. You must be a VCMC member to participate.

    Who should come to a Test and Tune event?
    Serious Competitors – CACC Regionals, Kumho Super Challenge and Packwood National Tour are all coming up quickly, it is now a good time to get your car sorted out.
    Novice Drivers – Test and Tune offers a short simple course with MANY runs for you to work on reducing those mistakes you make at your runs.
    Other drivers – Try out different setups, compare different sets of tires, car swapping… only limited by your imagination.

    Event Format:
    45 drivers will break into 3 groups. 1 group will be working and the other two groups will be running. We will break for lunch and switch the course up for afternoon runs, and there will be some time for course walk before afternoon heats start again.

    Location:
    BC Driving Center (Pitt Meadows Airport)


    Gates open @ 7 am
    Tech closes @ 8:15am, & Reg closes @ 8:30am (sharp!). (please note these times are strictly enforced and anyone not registered/tech'd by 8:30am will not be allowed to run - Please allow enough time for car prep and registration) Please also note that there is a railway crossing on Harris road, please allow enough time to get to the site if you get caught behind the train.
    Driver's meeting is at 9 am.

              I'm signed up on Karelo. Will there be time to work on the car between run groups for adjustments?

                              Just make sure that you don't have any loose items in the cabin, remove driver's side floor mat, make sure your lugs are tight (none missing), your battery is tied down properly (no bungee cords!), no leaking fluids, wheel bearings don't have excessive play in them, no large windshield cracks, no cords showing on tires, etc. Tech is pretty basic. If your car is safe for road use, you should be fine to pass tech.

                              Introduce yourself at the timing tent, and I'm sure that a senior member will be more than happy to ride along and give you some tips when they have the chance.
