    The 2020 Season - a few not-so-random thoughts

    All good points Bruce. Let me add a couple of considerations: Physical distancing is harder in a turn station or timing and scoring or a safety truck or in race control than in the paddock or in the cockpit of a race car. But perhaps not impossible. Our volunteers, many of them in the more...

    [Sold] Ram 3500 dually and Host Camper

    This rig has been a fixture at Conference races for the last 5 years, and now it's time to pass it on to the next racer.

  9. B Android app

    For all of you who prefer not to run your race cars (or even weed whackers) on corn juice, the guys now have a free Android app. It's primitive but it lists stations in order of proximity to the phone and integrates with navigation so you can find them. Didn't see anything about...

    Open Wheel Group at The Ridge April 1

    I was talking to Fred Wright yesterday and he mentioned that he has 3 registrations in the OW run group at the 4/1 lapping event. I'm in no way scolding the OW community, but with numbers that low this is likely to be a 1-time thing.

    New toys that make your racing experience better?

    Camera: I picked up a Contour Roam camcorder a couple of weeks ago. Don't remember the exact price, but it was under $200. It doesn't come with a micro SD card though - that's a separate purchase. I got to use it a little bit at The Ridge last weekend and the quality is fantastic at 1080p...

    Novices, start your smart phones!

    I'm not a big social media kind of guy normally, but I thought it might be useful to set up a Twitter feed for Novices on race days. Things I've thought of that might be useful are where in the paddock I'm set up (where the meetings will be), reminders to get your Novice book signed after the...
