Battle at the Bay - Team Competition

16 June 2014 - 06:24 PM

To add a little spice to the two day Battle the Bay Autocross (July 26-27, 2014) there will be a team competition with the winning team winning $200! Interested :rolleyes:?

Register your team when you check in on Saturday - no additional cost. But, feel free to introduce your KICK-ASS team here or on FB whenever.

Teams can be:
  • Three to five drivers
  • Drivers can only compete on one team
  • Car can only run once per team
  • No more than two team members can compete in the same class
Win/Lose:
  • Each driver will select one of their runs to go toward the team totals
  • PAX times, including penalties, will be averaged for all team members for the two days
  • Team with the lowest average wins $200!
  • Ohhh... driver must elect/indicate their team-run before taking it!
Say what ???? Simple ...
  • You tell the starter, when you come to the line, that "This is my team run" (it still counts as your regular run too)
  • Starter will let timing-and-scoring know and allow more time too make sure the course is ready
  • So whatever time plus penalties for that run go's toward the team totals
  • Should you DNF on the run - your immediately preceding run's time - plus five seconds - will be used for the team competition
Local SJR teams are forming as you read this - get yours now!

Really good editing gives a great sense of the intensity of a major event. Keep it in mind as July 26 & 27 gets closer :rolleyes:

Need help setting up course ...

31 March 2014 - 12:15 PM

Setting up a course at Bader takes more the one person/crew and since Ciotti abandon us to move down south (good luck dude :)) need someone else to join in...

Typically, I'll have a plan for where paddock will be and a general idea of where the course will go. And I may have a detailed map of some section/feature that I'd like to do; but, much is done on the spot. Things work best when I take that half of the course and leave the remainder to ... ?

You need to have some idea of the course features you find challenging and/or fun so that you can link them together into something that flows (whatever that is). In terms of getting ready for competitors and the schedule - often just getting something down is fine - followed by a couple adjustment walkthroughs (with the help of the peanut gallery by then :rolleyes: did I mention - leave the ego for later) can make almost anything work.

Other then that you need to be there around 7:30 AM and bring some work gloves.

Any volunteers or questions? Let me know...
