ok here is the map (http://www.telusplanet.net/~jamiefox/stalb.jpg)

easiest to come in from 142St and 137Av.....go north 142St to the stop sign at 167Av....then keep going north until you come to the first left and there you will see a big Warehouse on the north side of that Av. there you go

time-
Registration/Technical Inspection: 09:30 a.m.
Completed Entries Accepted Until: 11:00 a.m.
First Run: Noon

however they sometimes start early at 11:00am and you will need at least a snell95 helmet, valid drivers licence, and valid insurance/registration.

Other way round Steve.
1st car out by 11am, BUT they usually run late, so 12pm is usually the time.

For corvette club events, all u need is the helmet and driver's licence. No registration/insurance is required for these ones.

I'd like to run, so I have 2 questions...

1. First gear likes to grind, will that fail me in the technical inspection?
2. I have an old helmet (bought new in 90) will it be good enough, or do I need something newer?

I dunno about tech... my car has a "broken" fender and they let me pass at budpark.... but this isn't bud park either?! You could probably just run through second....?!

And for the helmet Ive heard you need snell95 or newer :mellow:

the tech inspection usually consists of them checking your tires, and checking if all your engine stuff is not moving around.....oh and you must have a metal battery tie down.

Basically, as long as your not wearing a hockey-helmet... you're good.

Damm... why do they always have to make these things so early?! So no one's answered the question of how much it's gonna cost to run? I'm thinking about coming as well.

I wouldn't say that. As long as you have any helmet rated above a Snell M95 rated helmet you'll be okay. Anything less, and u might not be allowed to use it, u'll have to get a loaner.

Classes separate cars by performance, so that VW Rabbits compete against Honda Civics, and Porsche 911s compete against Nissan 300ZX Turbos... Damn it, so I'd have to race a porsche... :( j/k


I still think I just want to watch... and maybe hitch a ride w/ one of the other drivers to experience it from the passenger seat first! :)

Yeah, cars aren't classed here and it's a 'fun run'. Either way, there is no reason not to join unless you don't have a car that doesn't pass inspection. :blink: :wacko:

Cool.. 1 more question...
Will we have access to power? I was thinking of loading up my aircompressor into my buddie's truck for our pit.. but with no generator that would be useless, so yeah, think there'll be an outlet we could use?

Other than that, I have no more questions.. :)

Bob

MightyMidget
May 10th, 2003, 07:45 AM
just fill your tires up before you come........but FWIW I am not certain on the power thing....i am not sure what psi you run in your tires but ther are several people that would recommend you be very close to 40psi in each tire.....
