Although the weather was not entirely cooperative all day, everyone who came out seemed to be having fun trying to master driving fast in the rain. It was also our first event running with our new timing & scoring computer system, and I saw several drivers walking around staring at their smartphone screens viewing the class results as cars ran once word started to spread about the new feature.
Note that these results are now using a 21st century web formatting, with three pushbuttons on top to select whether you want to view them sorted by class, overall (raw times) or PAX times. If anyone wishes to share feedback about this new format (or spots any errors), feel free to contact me. Likewise, if you spot any errors, please let me know so that we can investigate further.
We were informed last night by family that PSCC life member and former treasurer/equipment chair Gerry Ford peacefully saw his final checkered flag in Oregon on May 30th. He was 83 years old.
Our condolences go out to the Ford family for their loss…..
The corrected results from the 4/26/2015 Solo/autocross event have been posted to the results archive.

No promises, but we may even have live results visible from your smartphone or tablet at our events by the end of the year.

The setup crew went out to the farm over the weekend, and could not find a suitable field to use that would not have been a mudfest. The frost went deeper into the ground this winter due to the brutally cold temperatures, and it is acting like a bowl to prevent the surface water from being absorbed from what was explained to me. The RallyCross group will be meeting soon to come up with alternate spring/summer dates.
Here is a link to the final results of our season finale Rallycross on 11/9/2014:
This wraps up PSCC’s competition schedule for 2014. For club members, we have the holiday party and PANIC awards banquet coming up in the next few months. Thank you to everyone for your support of our Autocross and Rallycross events this season. Keep an eye on the web site after the new year for our 2015 schedule announcements.
Here are the results from Solo Points Event #4 at Lake Taghkanic on 10/26/2014: Final Results, PAX times, Raw times.
Although the cloudy day and passing afternoon shower didn’t provide the best lighting to appreciate the peak fall foliage this year, 50 drivers received 8 runs on a somewhat technical course designed by Mark VanDeCarr. Kudos go out to Paul Vinas, who scored the hat trick (won class, fastest PAX, and FTD), and took home our VIP guest driver (cardboard) Danica Patrick along with the other three trophies.
As event chairs, Jennifer and I would like to thank the NYR-SCCA crew for making the road trip up north to support PSCC, Dean VanDeCarr, Joe Pavan, et. al. for their usual through job at tech, Jarvis and crew for the equipment setup/teardown, Tom Murphy for all of the pre-event arrangements, Mark for another great course, Jennifer for collecting a truckload of door prizes, working registration, waiver, and everything else that she does behind the scenes both before and after each event, Chip and Beth for the donuts and apple cider, Greg VanDeCarr, Todd Robinson, and Mark Long for somehow keeping me away from the computer most of the day, and plenty of other people that I’m forgetting off the top of my head. It is such a pleasure to chair an event with such a great group of volunteers ready to step forward and get things done.
Let me throw in a reminder since I forgot to mention it at the drivers meeting that the 50th Annual Tri-State Championship is taking place on the big lot at Stratford on 11/2. The New York team *really* needs drivers to show up, so please make the trip out to FCSCC’s autocross season finale if you are available.
PSCC’s last competition event of the season is the Rallycross on 11/9. Following that, we have our holiday party in December and the annual PANIC awards banquet in late January. See the calendar above for details.
Fairfield County Sports Car Club (FCSCC) will be hosting the 50th annual Tri-State Championship on 11/2/2014 on the *big* lot at Stratford SAEP. If you are available and wish to drive on the New York team, please contact Jon Cohen (NYR) or Ken Frey (WSCC)…or just show up at the event and find either of them. Connecticut has not lost the Tri-State trophy when hosting the event for as long as I can remember, and I can’t think of a better motivation for us NY drivers to go out there and put our name on the 50th anniversary winner’s line on the historic trophy.
For your reference, here are the current Tri-State rules, as well as FCSCC’s event information link with directions.
We could not have asked for a better fall day to be out at the farm for our second Rallycross event of the season. Perfect weather, plenty of fall foliage color, temperatures in the 60’s and lots of sun. Mark VanDeCarr and the Rallycross crew set up an awesome fast/safe course that made full use of the available fields, which were 100% dry and usable. Run times were between 90-120 seconds, and only a few minor tweaks needed to be made to the course during the lunch break.
Thank you to Mark and Mark for putting together another good event, Steve, Jarvis, and the rest of the setup crew for making it happen, Chip for bringing out the refreshing apple cider and apple donuts, and of course Jennifer for working registration and waiver all day. If anyone didn’t notice, this was the first event for PSCC’s brand new wireless timing system, and it worked pretty reliably all day once we worked out a little glitch during the first heat.
Here’s the final results:
Reminder that we still have another Rallycross scheduled for 11/9 and of course our Solo finale at Lake Taghkanic on 10/26, so don’t put your cars away for the winter yet…..
