    New License Tiers (ARR vs. IRR)

    Dick - we all contribute and participate in varying ways. In its simplest form, prioritizing one's time and discretionary budget to go racing in the first place, is the most fundamental level of contribution. Clearly, the concern is the loss of entries/drivers, to the point of gambling...

    New License Tiers (ARR vs. IRR)

    Gustav - exactly. Since on an event-by-event basis, it is the member clubs that experience the financial bottom-line. Your club has innovated to make certain scenarios more attractive. If I'm a first-timer, NWMS could offer a first-timer discount that effectively covers their medical exam (as...

    New License Tiers (ARR vs. IRR)

    Steve - yes, you are correct. But it is most certainly a nit. The correct protocol could be put in-place to support what Andy and I proposed. When a novice is upgraded to ARR, that first race entry is waived. Cheers, -Bruce

    IRDC is desperately looking to fill 3 positions for this year!

    Karl - not sure what's involved with the Equipment Manager. We'll be at all three IRDC weekends, supporting clients. I can be reached at If it's about moving equipment around and making sure it's accounted for, that's a possibility

    New License Tiers (ARR vs. IRR)

    The time, money, and planning to make a doctor's appointment is *insignificant* in comparison to the time, money, and planning associated with preparing a reliable and safe racecar. Some things don't need to be tested, especially as it relates to safety. Sounds like you want to treat the drivers...

    New License Tiers (ARR vs. IRR)

    Ok - so this thread has been basically hijacked with diversions surrounding volunteerism, false choices, and all sorts of stories from camp. In my view, the "how we got here" is irrelevant. In an attempt to re-focus things a bit, it seems the reasoning behind this change is to lure young (or...

    New License Tiers (ARR vs. IRR)

    I just read through the very extended "From The President" article in the latest memo, and had previously read an email about the subject of these new license tiers. While I'm sure we all have opinions about the new license tiers, the differentiation between ARR and IRR has practical safety...

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

    Based on what? At the time of my original post, this was the projected *peak* date for hospital resources, which is the top of the curve, determined by the folks at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME). These guys are a premier health research center at UW Medicine, and their...

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

    Bob - agree on the border. BC also seems to be doing a rather good job of mitigating COVID-19, so perhaps the border will open up in the same time-frame. Current projected peak for WA is 4/24.

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

    As we all hunker down and wistfully remember the days of going out to eat, shaking hands, and not worrying about our toilet paper supply, I'm sure racing, and the potential lack of it, is also rattling around in all of our heads. As I think about how we conduct our sport, and we all continue to...

    When is the 2020 race schedule finalized?

    Title says it all - to maximize our clients' participation, it will be helpful to know when the event dates will get locked in, so we can avoid conflicts. Thanks, -Bruce

    2nd entry cost vs entries in general

    IMHO, the financial and logistics overhead of attending a race weekend far exceed the incremental price reduction proposed in the original question. I believe the cost of the second entry is a red-herring. The amount of competitive track time is the underlying issue. SOVREN has this figured...

    Proposed passing rule change 1504

    So, what is the thinking behind this rule change proposed by CSCC? IMO, 1504 is fundamentally problematic, as it does not assign proportional responsibility to the driver with the best view of the situation (overtaking driver). But - to the specific change proposed this year, what is the...
