Re: 2018 SCCA Track Nights at Heartland Park

I have done TNiA twice at Heartland Park. The new pavement is only about a year old now. Very smooth and easy on tires. Registration and getting on track is very relaxed and easy, which is unusual for any major club. I got an email today with a discount code: Greetings Track Nighters! Season 4 is up...

Re: 2018 Solo program enhancements

This sounds like a good year. I'm ready for winter to be done. A humble suggestion on the pre-runs: let those on the novice sign-up list take the guided practice run behind the wheel of their own cars. An uneasy first-timer would be more comfortable on a reconnaissance run in their own equipment, a ...

Re: First post in 2018. Solo car update

I know there's another guy - Shawn Lambert out of Kentucky - with a FP Mazdaspeed Miata build that has gone through several engines in rapid succession. Have you talked to him?

We have a limited number of loaner helmets that you may wear for free during your competition runs, but wouldn't you like to have y...

Re: Kansas City Region RallyCross #2 6/17/2017

OMRSCCA members take notice. This site is a pretty big catch, and it's only an hour from Springfield. Lucas Oil Speedway does circle track racing, off road truck racing, drag boats, and more. The fact that they're interested in having the SCCA there is a boon. Having a permanent dirt racing facility...

MO-D/Doniphan from highway 59 all the way past Crowder and the National Guard entrance next door is currently closed. No way to even access the site without one of these:

Re: 2017 OMR SCCA SOLO Event #2 4/30/2017 At Crowder College

Word from the OMR board is that the 4/30/2017 Solo will be postponed. Discussions on an alternative or makeup date are pending. Flooding was the main concern. We can handle a little rain an autocross, but the possibility of drainage problems at the site was raised by Crowder. Another round of heavy ...

Re: 2017 Area SCCA Schedule

OMR announced its Solo schedule before the OKC MiDiv date was known. The rest of the MiDiv schedule was tentative and on the radar, but OKC became known and official last. I'm not in a position to remark on behalf of the OMR board, but I do know that all of the MiDiv Solo weekends are individual poi...

Re: Axti.me software discussion

The new printer should make it pretty easy to tape work assignments to the side of the trailer. I think that would help people a lot. And no need to pass crayons between registration and work assignment stations. It could be fruit, adult novelties, car parts, etc. Team ATF filter could be on red pap...

Re: Axti.me software discussion

According to Dave Whitworth, who sold us our FarmTek hardware, using the live.axti.me option is better when we make the leap to offering live timing for competitors. By offering competitors timing through a WiFi connection, he experienced additional lag. Also, concerning the lags we had on Sunday: A...
