  • VCMC Series #1 May 23 2010

    VCMC in partnership with our sponsors is proud to present event #1 of the 2010 VCMC Series!

    This is the series that intermediate and senior drivers look forward to! We had a great response to our first Novice Championship Tour event, now it's time for experience to show enthusiasm how it's done!

    Without further ado, on to the regs:

    1. The Series will run under CACC groupings.

    Groups for the series will be as follows:
    Open PAX = This is the Topgun class, if you think you are fast, this is where you should be.
    Stock = AS, BS, CS, DS, ES, FS, GS, HS, SS.
    Non Stock 1 = All Street Prepared.
    Non Stock 2 = All SM, Prepared, Mod.
    Non Stock 3 = All Street Touring Classes.
    Ladies
    T Class = Open Class (except Street Touring Classes), anyone without R-compound tires can join (See SCCA tire exclusion list).

    Please note that as VCMC already runs a Novice-focused series (the Novice Championship Tour), we do not have a specific Novice class for this event. We do, however, encourage our novices to attend and get more seat time, as this level of competition really sets the bar! You want to see how the big dogs roll? You need to be here!

    2. Maximum of 2 drivers per car per heat.

    3. Only the first three runs will count for Open PAX competitors.

    * NEW FOR 2010 *

    4. Note that Open PAX competitors shall not conduct/participate in ride-alongs until they have completed their first three runs (the ones that count for points).

    Pros: Tough local competition, only first 3 runs count (great mental training), Better Prizes.
    Cons: Tougher competition :P
    Other Groups are designed for second and third year guys and those who need more runs to get a fast time.
    Pros: More Relaxed Competition, more runs to find your best run.

    *Please note*


    New for 2010 - Work Assignment Preference

    You will notice in the Karelo registration form two additional drop-down fields - first and second choice for work assignment preferences. This is to help improve our event operations planning and efficiency. The choices, typical available positions, time commitment and descriptions are as follows:

    No Preference/Volunteer Position

    You do not have a preference or have signed up for a volunteer position on the forum. We will automatically assign you in a manner that is most optimal for the event.

    Course Duty

    4 x number of work stations per work heat
    Entire work heat
    Cone-catching, red flag waving, radio duties at a course worker station each work heat. Watch the runs from a spectacular view.

    Tech Inspection

    3 - First shift with one person, second shift with two people
    30 - 40 minutes
    Very popular choice
    An early morning duty that ensure all competing vehicles meet our minimum tech safety requirements. This is typically 30 - 40 minutes per shift and the inspectors must be punctual and diligent. Having some mechanical knowledge an asset.

    Timing Operations

    4 per work heat
    Entire work heat
    Stay in a sheltered area while contributing to a critical aspect of the event
    Barcode scanner, start light operator, timing equipment operators. You will work with the Chief of Timing to ensure the event runs smoothly and accurately during your work heat. Training provided if necessary.

    Waivers Sign-up/Front Gate Duty

    2 single-person shifts in the morning, 1 per work heat
    1 hour per morning shift, or entire work heat
    This helps satisfy the legal requirements of running our event by ensuring all event participants and spectators read, understand and sign to acknowledge our waiver form and have a wristband as proof. This is either an early morning duty for participants arriving on-site or during your work heat.

    Event Day Setup/Teardown

    6 - 10 people
    20 - 30 minutes before and after event
    Help pack and unpack our equipment at the start and end of the event day. This is typically 20-30 minutes before and after the event depending on the number of workers.

    Course Setup (day before event)

    2 - 4 people
    ~2 hours day before event
    Help layout the course prior to event day. Must be available the day before. This is typically after 5pm on a Saturday for a couple hours.

    We will be assigning roles based on preference where possible but in order to maintain event operations efficiency we unfortunately cannot guarantee any preferences. You can help everyone out by picking typically 'less' popular assignments or choosing 'No Preference'!

            I agree Mark! As you know, we only had so many dates to vie for in the season. Besides, the positive thing is there is selection out there for events!
