Let's play "What If". cool.gif

Pretend we were at an SCCA National-level event yesterday. There would be no "factored" or "handicapped" classes, everyone runs only by Class. SCCA Does have separate National Ladies Classes by the way.

Or, assume that everyone decided to run in only their assigned Class yesterday. No Paxed/Handicapped Classes.

This is what that would have looked like. I applied the two corrections noted on the other thread.

At any event, if you would prefer to run in your true Class, just choose the "Open" Competition Category, and you would then be scored against only cars in your own Class. But, if you have no one to run against, that's one good reason to seek other Competition options.

By this time I'm usually finishing up my event number-crunching, I'd have written down all of my "benchmark" drivers raw times on my Event Worksheet, and I have a good idea of how my day went automotively speaking. Did I improve or not against the ten or so drivers I keep percentages on.

But, not today. Our printer at the event ran out of toner, so we had no scoreboard; only car numbers and times.

So, I immediately put in a call to our Tech Department. It was then I found out that we have no "Tech Department" or even IT Department.


So, what to do. I don't think Jeff W (our scorer) was at today's event, so it will likely be a day or two before he gets the numbers to post.

I checked azsolo.azballerz.com, and today's numbers were not there either.

THIS JUST IN........ See below for an update of scoring progress.

I signed up days ago, but then Autocrossing is first on my family disposable time Calendar, just eking out Tennis.

Click HERE to sign up and for the Event Details.

Looks like a great Fall day for autocrossing with temps hovering in the 70's and 80's. Even if you are from Phoenix, and stay for TO's you're usually on the road home by 2:00 or sooner. How could I pass on something like that? I couldn't. Nor should you. wink.gif

Always challenging courses, well organized and run. A large airport asphalt surface in great condition. They are going back to the Fall Schedule where Run/Work is A/C, B/D again. Group A is given one extra un-scored run (five!) to help clean off the course. Then you get four timed runs. First cars start about 9:00'ish.

Being the addict that I am, I get to do one Phoenix Event and one Marana Event each month. I like to think that the Mustang enjoys that too. wink.gif

The ADOT road report looks uncluttered for this coming Sunday, to and from Tucson.

It's now Thursday night, still 24 hours to put this on your calendar and sign up. Hope to see a few new faces out this season. smile.gif

Simply as an FYI, especially for the newer Drivers, is to acquaint you with what results could look like without the special handicapped Groups (PAX1, NV1, etc.)
I included Novices in the Open Results just to show them how they would fare in Class Competition. Also left PAX Ladies and Novice Ladies a separate.

There are about five corrections to Classing yet to be made, did not correct those. Not important here.

>There is absolutely a need for having those extra combined class Groups, as many Classes do not have enough cars to even form a Class.

But some of you may often have other drivers who could be in your Class if everyone simply chose "Open" Group.

So this is just an informal peek at "what if". smile.gif No sales pitch, no proposal. wink.gif

Anyone experienced interested in taking this on as a side job? I could do it, but getting too old to work on the cars of others.
Gotta save my energy for my Mustang. wink.gif

He has the correct (front only) camber bolts from Tire Rack, it's a 2006 Civic SI. Of course
he would need the front alignment adjusted to spec afterward. That's the whole point. laugh.gif

He lives in Surprise, but would travel some if needed.

Please PM or email me for questions/details/info (both are in my contact info; click on name and member profile).
