    Re: 2008 Kumho Super Challenge

    Hi Sean,
    Check out the KSC schedule:
    http://kumhosuperchallenge.com/schedule.html

    Friday July 25 - Test and Tune
    8:00AM - Gates open
    10:00AM - 2:00PM Test and Tune (ticket sales end 12:30PM)
    5:00PM - 7:00PM Day One course open for walking
    5:00PM - 7:00PM Registration and technical inspection. Mandatory for all Lower Mainland competitors *

    So basically there are 4 hours available. If you are there for the entire 4 hours, you can expect be running 50% of the time and working the rest. Ticket sales end at 12:30. $2 per run.
    Racing: It's not just for rich idiots. It's for all idiots.

      No. Test and tune runs are "Pay as you go". Pay for as many runs as you want/need. This is pretty standard for big events like National Tour in the US.

            Hello KSC competitors,

            I can't really express how much a big part of me wishes that I could be there - this is the first time that I've missed VCMC's flagship annual event ever since the first KSC back in 2003. I definitely miss the anticipation of the upcoming event, and also being involved in the organizing committee in the days and months of build-up.

            The entry list looks terrific, with so many competitors from out of town and lots of people I see coming back for more after attending last year's Canadian Nationals.

            Good luck, have fun, compete hard, travel safe, and help out your fellow autocrossers and especially the event organizers as much as you can.

            I look forward to reading the post-event reports and especially to see who gets the "sway bar award" this year.

            By the way... it looks like it's tied 2-2 between USA and Canada, and two past KSC champs are in it this year:

            2003: Oswald Chu
            2004: Karen Babb
            2005: Keith Brown
            2006: Ernest Fanthorpe

              HELP!

              My support vehicle for bringing tires to the race is not available, so I am reaching out for someone who is able to assist in bringing them out to the event. I'll be doing the test and tune tomorrow morning.

              I'm at 6th and Fraser, in Vancouver.

              Any help would be much appreciated.

                  Thanks to John Bercic for his kind services in picking up the tires for me tonight so I'll have them for the event tomorrow! He's also going to lodge James and I in Maple Ridge for the event - I think should be calling him "Sponsor!"

                  See you all at the races!

                    We're going to miss you this weekend Art. We know you'll be there in spirit. However, I don't know who is going to show me the fast line around the course this time (besides Matthew of course)!

                    I'll make sure to add that little bit of gas to the tank on Saturday evening, just for you It can't slow me down that much, right?

                      Ugh! Just for reminders - go to http://vcmc.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=7600&page=3 and start with post #51.

                      My fast lines were all from your co-driver anyways, so I think you will be ok. Have a great time!

                            It's been a hectic few of days. Last night ended in some serious foot massage, and tonight I'm soaking in epsom salts.

                            Let's hope the weather remains decent for Sunday so we can have a good shootout! If you haven't been in one before, it's going to be a real blast!
