For what it's worth, I drove up to P1 this past Tuesday. From Novato it only took me 1hr 5 minutes.  The drive wasn't bad at all.  

The P1 track is very nice and was worth the drive.

Hi All,

 

During the last meeting, I think we were too quick to disregard Blake’s offer to hold a race at P1 Hobbies this year. I would like to open it up for discussion again.

 

The main complaint from those at the meeting was the travel time/distance to get to P1. From my point of view, I don’t see this as a negative thing. I haven’t made the trip yet, but according to Google Maps, it’s an 80 mi./1.5 hr. drive for me. When I consider the time spent to setup and teardown our track (~3 hrs) and the work involved, the drive to P1 sounds like a win to me. According to Blake, track setup a P1 takes very little time and effort.

 

Also, I think it would be a great opportunity to introduce other racers to the Ground Pounders experience. I think we would have a great turnout from the P1 regulars and it could boost participation at our local events.

 

Another dimension to consider is the financials. P1 isn’t going to let us race there for free. Though we get free use of the Driven parking lot, there are still expenses like generators, fuel, portable toilet rental, etc. Electricity and restrooms are already available at P1. I don’t see any reason why we couldn’t use our normal expenses to negotiate a reasonable fee from P1.

 

Lastly, lets not forget that we’ve only had one parking lot to race on since April 2014. It would be nice to have an agreement with P1 in case, God forbid, we lose Driven.

 

I’m sure there is a point-of-view that I’m not seeing. I would love to hear from those who have raced at P1, who know what the drive is like, and who would/wouldn’t show if we were to hold a race there & why.

 

-Frank

Hi Gordon -

We will post all of that up very soon - the notes need to be typed up from last night, etc.

Matt is President and the first race is the warm-up race at Driven on March 6th.

Thanks,
Amy

Hey Frank or Sherman or Amy,

Who is president this season? Also how did the vote go on class changes, and what's the schedule for this season? 


Gordon.

Greetings Racers,

I have posted a link below to the *Non-Member* Ground Pounders Pre-season Survey. A nearly identical survey will be provided at tonight's meeting for voting members.

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1hhaMgeA8cNOp1UR-ENWXw9jTPm-dxc4LVYZ6zVnpvcQ/viewform?c=0&w=1&usp=mail_form_link

Your input is important to our club, however, this survey will not count towards tonight's (2/16/2016) vote. If you'd like your vote to count, consider becoming a member. Contact Amy (amy.wildt@regalwineco.com) for details.

See you all tonight!

-Frank

The nastruck class and the nation wide class should run the same motor setup imop, that way if you wanted to run the other class it would be a body change and tire change. not a body tires and motor swap

The rule for Nationwide class should work with other tracks like Delta, P1, Nor Cal, or even the Ground Pounders so a driver dose not have to change motors, tires, or bodies in order to run the class. As far as the Mini class, I'D like to follow the Tamiya TCS rule of running the Reedy motor. If the motor is unavailable then alow a one race grace period so a drive can run the Johnson motor, or a ROAR legal motor at that event. 
Hopefully a vote at tonights meeting will clear up some of the issues up for a vote.

Gordon.

We will be at the meeting tonight to discuss pan car rules and the state of pan car oval.   We have a rules set that we are going with for the season and have been testing with great success.   As far as tires go purple stripes are all I ran at groundpounders and had no traction problems,   Spec tire of some sort is a great option for club racing and the hobby shops that support the racing.  

 

as far as Tcs mini is concerened at this time the sonic m3 is not available at any of our distributers for this class

GP pancar supporting racers, and club Prez

 few items
,1. Sportsman truck should be 21.5 tcs rubber tire
2. sk no changes
3.Nationwide class- change body to protoform gen 3 c or d bodies cut on factory trim line spoiler only cut on factory trim line,open tire for gp surface,the purple stipe is awesome,but we just dont have the grip to make for good racing
4. Expert wing car class,please drop the (NR) name and just call it 10.5 expert and just imply it's a no boost class with 10.5 motors.

 this way guy's who want to run at delta  and visa -versa,they have two classes that they can race,with only a spec tire change for delta,which by the way, i ran one set in sk and nationwide ,7 race days ,with little to no tire wear,and i'm still running same set's. so for the avg. guy,thats less than 5 bucks a set cost per race day
just a few open forum thoughts to the supporting pancar racers at GP club.
 i'll be supporting gp pancar racing once again for the 18th season,i hope we can grow and get it back to the once awesomeness of having a-b-c mains!

Hey guys, Tuesday is coming and that means a meeting. I don't know exactly where but, I hope someone will let you know. There's the trailer discussion, the boards need paint, and the fencing. The time is 7:30 pm and the place to be designed.
