ST LAP III
Hello St Lac Members, We are only 17 days away from our first evening of lapping day at Shannonville. So looking forward to seeing all the pass holders soon If you have not done so already please complete the 3 step speedwaiver at the following link for the May 26th event: https://shannonville.speedwaiver.com/ldnma
As previously mentioned John Kinnear will be hosting an annual tech session starting at 3:00 on the 26th and we’ll be in the Fabi paddock as in previous years. Racers who are not running the evening session can still come out for your annual tech inspection as it’s a coup having John do this prior to any upcoming regional race weekends.
In contrast to our sold out evening sessions we are sucking air so far for attendees for the club’s midweek lapping day in July on the 13th as we have only two registrants so far. Here is the link for the event: https://www.motorsportreg.com The speedwaiver is included in the listing.
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.
Joining St LAC has never been easier and once again, we ask all members — new and returning — to join through the CASC portal. This will require that you ‘join’ the site and then login. If this is a problem you can drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
(And don’t worry if it’s a problem for you. Your secret will be safe with us. Maybe.)
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 email@example.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

Errata: The club also purchased several new loner helmets last year to accommodate those who forgot theirs.
