10/25/2015 Solo points event #4 results @ Lake Taghkanic posted

Preliminary results from the 10/25/2015 Solo/autocross event have been posted to the results archive.

As event chairs, Jennifer and I would like to thank everyone who came out to participate at our Solo/autocross season finale. Everyone’s assistance with the setup and tear-down was greatly appreciated. Mark VanDeCarr designed a fast course, and managed to incorporate a course element that those of us who ran at PSCC’s events at Orange County remember seeing in every taxiway course design from 1997-2006 with that pin cone turn before the finish straight.

Although the autocross season has wrapped up, remember that we still have one more Rallycross scheduled in November before we put away the cones for the winter. Hope to see everyone there…..

9/27/2015 Rallycross #1 (fall) results posted

Results from the 9/27/2015 Rallycross #1 (fall) have been posted to the results archive.

The best way to describe the day was chamber of commerce weather, with sun, a slight breeze, and temperatures about 70. The lack of rain this year (except when PSCC schedules autocross events) showed toward the end of the day, with some dust being kicked up as cars ran. Everyone had 8 runs at the 75+ second course designed by Mark Long and crew, and were looking forward to the next Rallycross event (Smashing Pumpkins?) in November.

Apologies for the delays and re-runs during the start of the first heat. The start photoheads were slightly below grade, and their radio signal was spotty at the timer end in the trailer. Once we moved them a bit further up the hill, everything was fine for the rest of the day…

9/13/2015 Solo points event #3 results @ HVM posted

Preliminary results from the 9/13/2015 Solo/autocross event have been posted to the results archive.

Despite a dismal forecast all week, Sunday turned out to be a beautiful day with lot of sunshine once the pavement dried up from overnight and early morning rain. Everyone got 10 runs, and we started packing up before 3:00 PM. Thanks to everyone who came out to drive, and especially those who also volunteered to work with the snow fence, course layout, and other setup activities.

I want to apologize to everyone looking for the live timing results after the last cars ran. I started to pack up the computer equipment out of habit as soon as the course closed, and totally forgot that drivers would still be using the web server to see how they fared. I’ve made a mental note not to disconnect it at our next autocross event in October.

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.

6/28/2015 Solo points event #2 results @ HVM posted

Preliminary results from the 6/28/2015 Solo/autocross event have been posted to the results archive.

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.

Gerry Ford

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…..

Lake Taghkanic 4/26/2015 Solo results posted

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.

5/3 RallyCross Canceled

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.
