  1. Yes I get that ec car entries helps pay the bills for the series. Especially out west with low car count entries. What people are forgetting is that this is a grass roots series. Budget builds run what you brung within the set rules. Ec cars are outside the set rules and are usually cars from another racing series with bigger budgets. We are forgetting that this potentially poses a safety issue. For example: an ec car Chevy corvette (150mph top speed ) on track and racing with an A classed stock geo metro (95 mph top speed) The speed differential is huge with scary Closing rates on the high speed tracks that we visit. It’s a bad mixture that can have devastating results. This discourages the slower cars and the inexperienced drivers from entering future events. The class system keeps these speeds down to a relatively safe level. I’ve been with this series since 2011 and have seen the series change. The ec car class has exploded and needs to be addressed. My 2 cents
  2. Has this race been canceled?? I just tried to enter and I didn’t see it as an option.
  3. I’m starting to wonder about this event. Less than 60 days out and only 5 entries? Seems like t hill all over again. Wonder if a price cut is coming in order to entice more entries? I’ve been part of this series since 2011 and I’ve seen In past years events have been cancelled due to low entry numbers. 😕 I hope that’s not the case here.
  4. Unable to make this race. I live in so cal and booked another event already.
  5. I noticed this event is not on the 2019 schedule anymore. What happened?
  6. Sorry but what’s 20 car limit mean? Does it mean max of 20 cars can enter the race? Does it mean 20 car limit to get the 650$ deal? Or does it mean 20 cars are needed to have the event go forward? Please clarify.
  7. Excellent video. Thanks. Looks super fast. Cool under bumper cam too 👍🏽 Speed Ventures is back out at Fontana roval on nov 3 rd and 4 th. We have signed up for the track day on the 3 rd and going to shake down the car and learn the course a bit. Anyone else going?
  8. Wow cool 29 entires. Never count out alchemy autsports lil red rocket Miata ! Btw. Has anyone else noticed in the supplemental rules or says no camping? Years past we could stay In Our trailers at the track. What’s changed?
  9. We will be entering soon. Prepping car this weekend. Roval here we come !!
  10. sorry about the lights.... we forgot to adjust the lights before the night time race. We do like giving other drivers a sun tan with our lights. We will be taking a few months off to work on the car. The car would not rev over 3000 rpm....
  11. We ran the 12 hr LD at buttonwillow last weekend. We did the 12 hr instead of the 24 hr because or car doesn't stay together for the total 24 hr. Also we use 10 gallons of gas an hr and would have to make a few trips into town to accommodate the 240 gallons of gas we would have used in the 24 hr race. I believe there were 12 cars signed up for the 12 hr race.
  12. is he good at photo shop? maybe he can make it look like our car was on the track lol
  13. We had a blast watching our car go around the track for 5 laps. We left Vegas on Sun morning and drove to L.A. and put our spare motor in so we will be ready for Fontana. i guess the good thing is our brake,tires and etc. do not need to be replaced. We believe we lost the oil pump or a bearing in the engine. We will be in Fontana and ready to race. Congrats to Miata PI for the (close) win and to everyone else who survived the 13 hours. how was the chicken at midnight. Mike
  14. Glad the driver of the BMW was okay. It was a really hard hit. I was in the black mustang directly behind them. I could almost feel the impact from in my car. We we had a fun time this weekend. Broke a few parts but nothing too major. I I must give credit to the 701 Red mustang. Those guys worked long and hard to get that car ready by race morning. That little v-6 auto hung in there really well. Hope to see them at future races and hang out some more. Great job this weekend Chumps!
