Re: 2018 Solo #8 8/12

"That course we ran last Sunday, that was a lot of exercise, wasn't it?" "Exercise? You mean walking it because it was longer?" "No, not exactly. Exercise shifting." "Shifting? Wha'd'ya' mean shifting." "I shifted 9 times each lap. After thinking about it I should have shifted 2 more times." "Nine t...

OMR Solo 7/15/18

Hey Everyone, Did you survive the autocross on Sunday? How about the heat? How about the crossovers? Did you figure out the flow of them? OK, did you survive the last Chicago box? Think it was too slow? Yeah, me too. Setting up a course, especially if you don't do it very often, is an exercise in pa...

2018 OMR Solos #3 & #4, 5/19 & 5/20

Hey All, Wow, what a weekend! Two great courses designed by Brad Holliday. The rains missed us for the most part....the exception being the storm Sunday morning early that blew Saturday's course into the weeds so it all had to be set up again. Brad craftily made a course Sunday with a couple of wate...

Re: 2018 OMR Solo #2 4/15

Hey All, Gee whiz was that cold. I shivered all through the first heat and my mouth sort of froze up so I couldn't form words. In spite of the weather the event ran well, there were no safety problems, and it didn't rain. Thanks to Scott for his organization and to everyone for working in those cond...

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

OK, we finally were able to run OMR event # 2, otherwise known as the Oct. 22 makeup autocross. It was cold, rainy, wet, windy, sunny warm, and slippery. First heat drivers had a wet course to drive on. Second heat drivers had a dry/wet/dry/wet/dry course to drive on. I want to be the first to congr...

Re: 2017 OMR SCCA SOLO Event #8 10/08/2017 At Crowder College

Hey All, I also wish to thank Jim for a great course. Thanks also to all the folks who participated and worked. OMR rocks! I enjoyed it greatly even though I found the water hazards challenging. For the first time this year I feel like I'm learning how to drive this particular Mini Cooper. Congrats ...

Re: 2017 OMR SCCA SOLO Event #7 7/17/2017 At Crowder College

I stand corrected. I now agree with Scott. Here, restated in this post, are the contenders who have a mathematical chance for AOTY, their points and their number of events. Kent Willer, 48 points, 6 events Mark Foley, 35 points, 4 events Jason Mulkey, 35 points, 5 events Bud Weeks, 34 points, 6 even...

Re: 2017 OMR SCCA SOLO Event #7 7/17/2017 At Crowder College

Yes, I see we have a difference. Am I correct that points are awarded this way?
1st, 15
2nd, 12
3rd, 10
4th, 9
5th, 8
6th, 7
7th, 6
8th, 5
9th, 4
10th, 3
11th, 2
12th and below, 1 point

This is the way I remember the bylaws; maybe my memory is faulty. I'll look at my figures again.

Re: 2017 OMR SCCA SOLO Event #7 7/17/2017 At Crowder College

Hey Everyone, Well, my feet have just now dried out and my shoes may be dry by the weekend. To those who left before runs started---and I can understand the frustration of having to wait for who-knows-how-long for the lightning to clear---you missed a very fun event. It was worth the long pause. Not...

OMR Solo #6, 8/6/17

Hey All, That was a fun format today and I hope we can do it again....maybe a couple of times a year. Yes, I know it is more hassle and it takes longer because of one more changeover, setting a different course, and double entering in the computer. But it brought out some different strategies. With ...

Re: 2017 OMR SCCA SOLO Event #4 6/11/2017 At Crowder College

I want to congratulate Mark Foley. Not only was he the top PAX from Sunday's event, but he was first in class at both a recent Pro Solo and a Solo Tour. I didn't realize this until last night. Well done Mark! Mark's PAX win was by about .8 sec., a good gap. Got some good feedback on the course. I re...

Re: 2017 OMR SCCA SOLO Event #3 5/21/2017 At Crowder College

A great day autocrossing! As Scott noted, very close competition with the top 13 in PAX within .4 sec. It's more fun when it's like that. Congrats to Brad Holiday for top PAX, and to Kent Willer, for not only a good course but for being just a tiny tick behind Brad. And for Charlie Holt for a great ...

Re: Event# 6 of the 2016 OMRSCCA Solo Season - 8/28

Hey All, Sam, you're awesome! Nine-tenths in the clear on PAX from second place. Well done! Thanks to all that made it happen....Kent for the course, Scott for the organizing, all the rest who set up, took down, and worked. Good to see four out-of-towners in the top 10 in PAX. OMR events are high-qu...

Re: Event #5 July 24, 2016

Man, was it hot out there. No, not as hot as it could have been but plenty hot enough. At one point I thought I saw flames coming out from under Mark Foley's tires but I guess that was just because he was going so fast. I was discombobulated from the start. First run....no numbers on the car and I f...

Re: 2016 OMR SCCA Solo #3 "Autocross Mayhem"

Hey All, When I arrived at our site today and had a chance to walk the course, I just knew that there would be no way to could do well. It looked like a power course, where about 400 hp would be just right. Notwithstanding that I felt like crap from way too much activity the previous two days....inc...
