    05/28/2010 - Test & Tune

    NCC Autocross is organizing a Test & Tune event for Friday, May 28, 2010 at SPR Washington Circuit. It will be extremely limited entry (only 20 drivers). Cost per participant will be $100 each. An exclusive bonus of the event is that we will have 6 compensated courseworkers to shag the cones! (We might have to assist with big wipeouts, but for the most part it will be a drive, not work, event).

    Registration will open on May 7th - a link to DLBRacing will be provided then.

    The description from DLBRacing:

    For this event, we will be using a completely new format!

    Important event highlights include:

    - Entry limited to only twenty (20) drivers to ensure the maximum amount
    of seat time (anticipated ~20 runs each);
    - Six (6) compensated courseworkers to work the course (we may have to
    "assist" them with large course resets, but should be able to handle most
    cone resets themselves);
    - Timing will be set up, however cone penalties will not be recorded;
    - All participants will be required to help establish the course in the
    morning and pack up the equipment in the evening;

    Registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable.

    See you out there! Let me know if you have any questions!

    ***The AM/PM option means absolutely nothing. Just pick one.

    We will have the lights set up and the display board active. I don't think that we will be able to record the times in the software as that would require someone to be manning the computer.

    We will still be able to see our times at the finish correct? Just won't have a tally of each run unless we write it down ourselves?

    Yes, that is what he is trying to say. The timing display board will be out for everyone to see their run times at the end of the run.

    Just registered. This should be a fitting end to my OEM run flat tires. I'm looking at a set of Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110's in stock size (215/40/18 F, 245/35/18 R)for my replacements, so I can stay in the showroom class and have decent tread wear for my daily driver.
