August newsletter part II

I had been looking forward to this event for so long – it is my absolute favourite motorsport event that I have ever been involved with. Once again the event ran super smooth and I was able to thoroughly enjoy the weekend; spending time with friends, oogling at cars, and smashing cones. Once again we ran three run-groups throughout the day, divided based on car classification, and we were able to get in 5 runs on Saturday and 6 runs on Sunday. The course was very enjoyable with a range of elements that seemed to offer something for everyone, and every care, participating.

There were very few mechanical issues, with no cars actually needed to be towed off-track (one Eagle Talon needed a push, but was able to get it running before the tow vehicle arrived).

Also, I want to thank Danby for his contribution to the event – from all the leg work and phone calls to the use of his race trailer, this event wouldn’t run without you. And many thanks to Steven and Lynda Day for their continued support with he event and with timing, to Daniel Fryer for the course design, and the rest of those through TMLS who helped out.

We will be reaching out for additional ideas and volunteers next year as we hope to stack the Picton event with a lapping day, and offer prizes to St. LAC participant.

Finally, we had a total of 6 St. LAC members who competed. Below is a summary of their standings against each other:

Fastest combined raw time: 185.777s – N Mason (2003 Nissan 350z)

Fastest combined PAX time: 149.741s – D Gray (2019 VW GTI)

Most cones: 14 – N Mason (2003 Nissan 350z)

Highest percentage of DNFs: 80% – M Davidson (1974 Porshe 914)

Stay safe. Be kind.
