2016 Competition Update #3- Midseason update

Competitors,

This year has certainly been a battle of the elements.  We have had inconsistent and at times torrential rain.  We have had dry dusty conditions.  We have had “I am sweating faster than I can drink” heat.  It has been a wild and crazy ride that has yielded some fantastic class battles.  Before going any further make sure you sign up for our next event at Mosport HERE.  Also note there there is a two participation point bonus for members who attend BOTH Mosport and Watkins Glenn this year!  

COM held their first ever time trial event at Canaan Motor Club.  COM’s workers put a substantial amount of work into preparing and running this event.  We appreciate everyone’s efforts including the folks who stepped up to help flag the event.  This event highlighted what an amazing group of volunteers this club has.

We also had our first and only event at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park of 2016.  This was a very well-attended event.  Conditions were excessively hot.  For those that have invested in cool-suits; you finally got your money’s worth and then some!  We were treated to some excellent customer service from the track all around.  Now onto the class updates. (more…)

Event announcement:

Mosport Registration is open!

Registration for Mosport is now open!  Mosport is a world-class track and happens to be my personal favorite venue.  This track is very different than the tight twisty tracks we are used to here in New England.  It has very fast long sweeping corners with very dramatic elevation changes.  This was a Formula 1 venue from 1967-1977.  You can read more about the track here:

If you are trying to squeak out every last point in pursuit of a class championship, make sure you clear your schedule for both Mosport and Watkins Glenn.  There are two additional participation points awarded for each event AND you will get two MORE participation points for attending both events!
