Going to be an interesting one. I don't THINK tomorrows weather should have a hugely detrimental impact on the event, but we're going to have to play it by ear. I'm not sure we've ever had to plow an event the last week of March before. :)

The lot was pretty much bare when I drove past at 4:00 today (Friday). The usual winds (and the un-usual hurricane force winds from the other night) whipping across the lot have done the plowing for us. There was little to no snow except for the end near the highway.
Should be another messy one.

Took a run into the lot today...can you say mud?!?
There were some rather large holes filled with water scattered throughout the playing surface...almost like craters!
The far end is literally a lake...complete with ducks. I s**t you not...ducks.

Ducks are 30sec.

This better be a confirmed race, with no cancellations in the morning form heavy rain. Otherwise, I have 30cms of snow coming for me in Maine.

Thanks to everyone who came out for today's cold and wet abridged RallyCross. While we set an event speed record I think everyone has fun and the lot survived relatively well and should be ready for our final event in two weeks on April 13th! We are going to do a little bit of repair first though so stay tuned for the announcement of a work session in the next week to clean up what we have. Everyone do your anti-rain dances and if anyone is ready to unveil their evil villain weather machines there's no better time! Let's make the last event epic!

Also 12th, ouch! There was no room for having a bad day when you're counting 30 second runs. :)

My quickest run. Maybe not the best camera mount, but it looks fast...

Hi Folks! The pictures from 30 March are now posted at:

http://www.bluenoseautosport.ca/hmmerk/ ... /index.htm

As usual the pictures are grouped by driver starting order, but for each driver are in chronological order. All photos are from the first three runs - except for the pictures taken in the start area which are from run 4.

That would be me, a couple of good bumps developed over the course of even our short day.
