Can't wait

What time does racing start? Single car qualifying to set up the heats might be fun to try during one of these bigger events.

We used to use a light trap to single car qualify. Setup as a 5 minute race and run as many as you can for 3 laps in that time..right?

I saw it done once, this summer on dirt. It was fun. Gives it a more realistic feel. Didn't take too long, about 20 seconds per racer. I think they just set the computer on practice mode, printed out a order in which to qualify, each racer got two laps, I think they just wrote down the best lap then sorted the heats by that. Mr. christmas set fast time then it was all downhill from there, lol.

If everyone remembers we use to do that at the Salvation army with the old counting system,so it's nothing new to us,just got figure out how to do it on this system.i will look in to it tomorrow.Bob is right we will have to start doing this early so it will cut in to practice time.i believe the race is starting earlier that day anyways,Neil can confirm this.

we used to do 3 lap qualifying runs at the track i had in Chateaugay and it seemed to work out very well. Time was the only drawback. If everyone is ready to go when they are up it doesn't take long but if some guys aren't ready then you have to go back in the program and that is what took all the extra time. Can't wait for this race it's always a good one!! I think you will have to run a 92 @ 502 to make the A in 17.5 ??
