When the post resorts to name-calling, I'm out.  See you at Road America. 

Yeah.  I’m done too.  Interestingly, the difference of opinion seems to be along clear lines.  All of the people against it are registered for the race, and almost all of the people for it are not.  

See you there!  Looking forward to having a beer with you and checking out your cars.

I will get there mid-day Thursday and my whole team doesn't show up until like 8 PM.  I'll need some drinking buddies...

All opinions expressed in this thread are equally meaningful since none of us are the one or two guys who are going to actually make the decision.

I'm willing to bet it will be allowed based on precedent set with similar situations at other races.

Nice, surely a buddy would give a favourable point value on my new engine parts??? :)

 

We are getting to the track early on Thursday to run the full test day.

Flying in early to pick up some Spotted Cow.  We actually found another beer by that same brewery that is pretty good too.

 

When you come by, ask for Brad.  I'm the bald guy with a beard.

I haven't found a beer from New Glarus that isn't good.   Sometimes we go to WI to buy car parts.....beer always follows us back to Iowa...

No worries.

 

  Our team has much experience in consumption from Alcohol Poisoning to bad hangovers. Water, a stout breakfast, or for our Canadian Brethren hair of the dog and all involved will be bright and shining ready for racing. 

 

  If any team decides to throw down with the Canadian Professionals please be proactive. Take a few aspirin and hydrate with A LOT of water. No retreat, no surrender with the Canucks.

I had to leave the bar in a taxi at Mosport after drinking with MOPAR.  Luckily I puked early and often and was able to drive the next morning haha.  I've not been duped since then...

I walked by the team And got half a buzz. I would do another tour in Afganistan before throwing down with those Hoonigans.

On a scale of 1-10 how much do you dislike Jer?

Screech should be reserved for 9's and 10's.

I may be missing something that is hiding in plain sight - does anyone know/remember what the pit speed limit is?  I don't see a "standard" in the BCCR, and did a word search in the supps and didn't find it either.

I think they usually say 2500 RPMs in 2nd.  Not sure what that speed is though.

 It varies from track to track due to size of track, pit road, and number of cars . The race director will state pit road speed among other important information at the drivers meeting , BE THERE ..

I’ve never missed a drivers meeting!

 

 I was asking because it was looking like we wouldn’t have a functioning speedometer and I wanted to work out the RPMs ahead of time.  As it turns out, it looks like it might be functional after all, so we won’t be doing a lot of math between the drivers meeting and the race. Whew!
