Getting techee with it

Tech Inspections
Note to all the club racers John Kinnear has graciously allotted time prior to the lapping night on May 26th to complete your annual tech inspections- Anyone who has waited in line at CTMP knows the value of this benefit to being a club member.  So a huge collective thank you to John.  Tech inspections will start at 3:00 on the FABi paddock so please don’t arrive at 4:45 and expect  to be scrutinized as John will be running his own MGB that evening and will need time to prepare his own car.

Volunteers needed for the Vintage Grand Prix at CTMP

This year’s Vintage Grand Prix on June 16th through 19th weekend is shaping up to be one of the biggest and best ever. To make that happen we need volunteers to help out at various times during the event. In return we can offer you free entry for the event, some Vintage Grand Prix swag, entry to the Friday night banquet and the Saturday night Paddock Crawl.
Our greatest needs are Wednesday evening, and during the daytime on Thursday and Friday, along with some help on Saturday and Sunday. Any time you, or someone you know, can offer whether it be for hours, or a day or more, is greatly appreciated.
Please contact David Sim, VARAC Secretary, at 647-608-5870 or varacsecretary@gmail.com.

Spring Update- St Lap III sold out, electronic waivers are here, lapping day link for MSReg registration

Dear Members:

Speed Waiver
The big news this last week is that all the CASC affiliated events are now moving to an electronic waiver.  The Speed Waiver, as you would probably imagine, is event specific.  For ST LAP III the waiver can be found here:  https://shannonville.speedwaiver.com/ldnma  Our understanding is the process is pretty simple-1) log on with your details, 2) sign the waiver by using your finger to write on your phone and 3) take a selfie. This speedpass waiver will in fact be very efficient once it’s up and running and should be an annual one so it should streamline our registration , but like all new things will create some initial confusion.
The Speed Waiver for the Alan Pawling event can be accessed through the event posting at MSReg.

St LAP III
With spring weather around the corner many of us are dusting off our cars to realize that our first lapping evening is only weeks away.  I don’t know about the rest of you but the weeks are flying past in our household. It’s a little surreal.  So I am trying to get my $hit together so I can enjoy more than 3 laps this year in the ‘vette.  It appears that I am not alone as the lapping passes are nearly all spoken for.   We have 4  racer  spots left and a half dozen street ones remaining so if you have been procrastinating it’s time to  renew your membership here: https://www.stlac.ca/2017/12/joining-st-lac-renewing-membership/. And make your $280.00 payment to paymentstlac@gmail.com for the pass.

In theory we can put 24 cars out per stint on the long track but of course this leads to a very crowded session which inevitably diminishes the whole purpose of lapping as we dont want to be running a clump and bunch event series. There is merit in keeping things clean and simple and that remains the club’s goal- sounds a bit exclusive , I know, but heck that’s part of our charm. We are currently sitting at approximately 30 street cars and 12 race cars which leaves us with some space at each event as we never want to turn people away from joining us on track but as you can see we are close to our cut off – ideally we don’t want to exceed 20 cars per session. If the weather is good we tend to get a full house go figure…

Alan Pawling Memorial Lapping Day 2022
Registration is open on msreg.com for the club lapping day on July 13th ( find the link here: https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/alan-pawling-memorial-lapping-day-shannonville-motorsport-park-st-038942) so please spread the word.
