The deadline for early bird pricing has been extended until April 2nd.

So far the following members have signed up or indicated their intention to attend:

1) Brent -- Cup
2) Robb -- Cup
3) Roy -- FI
4) Victor -- FI
5) Jack -- Cup
6) Jim -- Cup
7) Tim -- FI
8) Andy -- FI
9) Tom -- N/A MOD or CUP?
10)Richard -- Cup


Even if you're an annual LCS member (such that early bird pricing is not an issue), please indicate your intention here regarding attendance .... it will help with planning. TIA.

Professional instruction/coaching is available (at additional cost) -- please let us know ASAP if you want an instructor.

Two run groups each having seven 25 minute sessions (not including the Time Trial and Demo w2w Race) will make for plenty of practice with no traffic -- probably 12-13 cars per run group.

Looking forward to seeing you at the track. :shift:

I expect to run in Cup with the red Exige - hopefully transformed from a drift car to a road racing car. Unless rules committee bumps power a bit, I might be over limit for cup and have to run in Ultra for this event. Engine internals are stock, but cup car parts, Charlie tune, stock pulley, but a ProAlloy water to air intercooler. Haven't had a chance to dyno yet.

The S1 is available for rent. Rules committee is thinking a S1 Elise sport 190 is too fast for N/A mod, so that car will likely get bumped up a class or 2 or 3 (Ultra ??) by then.
Car is stock and runs similar times to my Exige S from last year, prior to close ratio gears, charlie tune, etc. But has potential to run as fast as this years group of cup cars.
Not sure I want to put a wing on it or bump power from 190 to 220 or 260.
KISS -> reliability.

Sign up soon, if you're planning on attending -- I believe that the LCS is capping this event at 26 cars. Two run groups with no more than 13 cars --- Lots of practice time with little traffic.

**********************************************************************************************************************************************************************
The track day schedule will look something like this:

Registration—7:00 AM to 7:35

Driver’s Meeting—7:35 to 7:55

First practice session/run group of ~13 cars to commence at 8:00 AM; Second practice/ run group will go out at 8:30; and the practice sessions will continue on the hour and 1/2 hour until Noon.

Lunch Break—Noon to 12:40 PM—TRACK CLOSED

Practice sessions to continue from 12:45 until 3:00 PM

Time Trial Drivers' Meeting (group/grid positions assigned for TT) at 3:10 PM

Time Trial will begin at approximately 3:30 PM.

Pre-Race Drivers' Meeting (grid positions for race assigned) at 4:15 PM

10-Lap Club Race * will begin at approximately 4:30 PM

Awards Ceremony at 5 PM
**********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

*EDIT: Our 10 lap race is a CLUB RACE (not a demo race) ... meaning that any and all participants for the race will be required to have the appropriate experience/credentials and their car must meet all LCS-specified safety requirements.

Jim will publish a list of eligible cars/drivers for this inaugural Club Race. :shift:

N/A Mod rocks on!!! Ummmm - wait a minute - S1 in NA Mod!??? Is that an S1 190 or the lower hp? What's the determination rules committee? I'm not looking for an easy kill, but isnt the S1 a known S2 killer? I guess we're going to find out!

Interesting that the heavier Exige S1 is in FI class. Seems to me the S1 Elise 190 and S1 Exige are equal cars on track, while the lower hp S1 Elise may be more equivalent to the S1 Elise.
