Postby Mel Kuipers » Wed Aug 31, 2016 10:21 am

We need to get the Event Chair, SSS and Chief of Waivers in place for our season ender in Helena....I will not make the event....the toughest call for the EC is fall weather call the day of the event....please step up if you know you will be there and are willing to take a leadership role....and Mudge---will you do the course?....usually the motorcycles are not there so you can use both pads...

Don't forget, this is the last chance to race for the year! Dont skip this event only to regret it in a few months. The course should be great and the event low key. Come out for a nice fall weekend and get some fun driving in before we put on the snow tires!

This is almost always my favorite event of the year and a perfect time for those that normally only compete with us here in Bozeman to make the trip up and get out one of the best places to autocross in the entire northwest.

Come for either or both days. Free camping and indoor showers. Not a bad deal.

Who's Alex C? My plans have changed and I won't be able to make this event. Can someone else handle waivers?

It's been a long time since we've been to Helena, when you state "both pads" does that include the road section of the facility? And how's the weather there these days?

thanks! Doug and Tasha

Hey there -

If you know the facility in Helena you know there are large pads (one large one where we often park and one huge one that we normally drive on) and then some roads that come off the huge pad. Typically for this event we run on the two pads and not on the roads and this makes for a very smooth and fast traditional solo course that has lots of run off room. It's so much fun. I like running on the roads but nothing beats the 2 pad party.

I hope you can join us!

Hey Mel -

It seems the powers-that-be are watching the weather closely and if the forecast holds considering rescheduling the event for the weekend following this one.

It looks like we will be parking and staging for this weekend's event out on the big straight near the sweeper. So when drivers arrive they should head out in that direction.

I just did the audit and would love to hear about the event. Think of it as an inquiring mind wanting to know. It looks like it was easy to get a top 10 finish.

It was a really fun weekend Mel - you would have enjoyed it.

The turnout wasn't huge but we had some very quick drivers on a classic solo course. The weather varied from cool sun to cold and damp and we saw rain at the end of both days but most everyone got 10 dry runs each day. The Mudge course very much rewarded smart driving and looking far ahead. I was at the top of second most of the time with one section of 3rd gear and a top speed of about 72ish mph. We had a few spins but no one went into the dirt and there were no "wheels off" incidents.

We had a few first time drivers and it looked like everyone had a great time.

Sorry you missed it!
