If all is good for me the 4th I plan to race the GT-12 class.  All depends on how I'm feeling though...

I think I'm out for Group F this year.

Work is insane and I haven't even started looking into getting a car together.

It's been many months since I've been able to even make the monthly Sunday race.

Come on Max--you've still got over a week---what--it takes 15 minutes or so to solder a new motor in your car?  :)  Come on out and play!! 
 

It's going to be a fun race with some "out of towners" coming in to play also!! I managed to put those "Stupid little or rings" :sarcastic_hand:  that are supposed to pass for front wheels in my car :crazy: , and it didn't change a thing! :dash2:  Except add .2 grams!! :shok:  If a car is supposed to have 4 wheels--then the SHOULD be WHEELS!! OR--just go the GT12 / Flexi route and not use anything but a sticker!! :good:  At least then it has the APPEARANCE of wheels!!!  :victory:

Max it would be a shame to not have last years Western States Group F winner this year. Put a new motor in the car, its easier than putting a motor in a can am car lol

James- a couple of questions:

Are tire changes allowed during lane changes between heats?

USRA now has a "no tools or tire changes" during lane changes. Will this rule be in effect?

Two minute lane changes for GT12 & one minute for E24?

So much DRAMA for such small cars....

It's gonna be 2 min intermission for both and you can do whatever you want between heats. This is the 1st time GT12 and euro has been ran in a year, so I'm not gonna drop that on some people quite yet. Might make some small changes as we move forward to future races.

Wish I could make it. Sounds like it will be a GREAT event, Good Luck to all. I'll be in Bakersfield for the March Meet with the "Grimes Rock" A/G Studebaker.

Entry fees for GT12 and Euro are $20 for each race. I have been guaranteed the a/c will be running all day. Forrest has the other entry fees.
I remember $20 for Group F but not the others.
