CCS Racing August 28/29 at BHF!

Okay, I must be addicted, I've started the last two threads on this subject!

I'll be there. As stated in the CCS forum thread, it's my birthday weekend (yeah, I'll be there on Friday!) so as a great gift, can all Supertwins racers please completely sandbag so I can place?
Or come in after a couple laps?

As usual, the food will be there. I think I'll scale back how much I'm bringing. And I'm really pissed that I forgot 20 lbs of trout/salmon at the reserve center fridge.


When do Gingerman results get posted? I'm wondering if I'm up to 10th in Supertwins.

Oh, it looks like I'm out for the Wegman day. Army has decided to put some extra training on that weekend. Grover gets to go and get the living crap beat out of him for three days!

We'll be there Friday - Sunday as always and I'm bringing a spare SV just in case mine has problems again. If it doesn't I'll be doing the 4 races otherwise I'll have to skip the supersport race because of the other one having inverted forks. But we'll see I'm going to replace the solenoid for the front cylinder and put (Grover are you listening) an ignition key back on there since that might be another possibility for the electrical gremlin.

As far as the results, you're not the only one waiting impatiently I'm dying to see if I made it into the top 5 now for Supertwins. They take their time posting them though.

An ignition key? Are you going to bust out the key part so you can just start it with a flathead screwdriver?

If the weather is good I'll take a half day so I can get some practice in on Friday. Hell, maybe I'll go so far as to plan my Christmas vacation plans so I know how much vacation I have to divide out!

Nah because then if I ever needed to restart it for "any" reason then I wouldn't be able to. Maybe next year I'll do that since I plan on doing race subframes and run no battery like Ed Key.

Not because I need the weight savings, but just because I don't want to relocate it.

Pol, didn't you get a certificate from SuperDave for racing? You can show that and pay your fee ($75 by now I think) and race on Saturday, Sunday.

Amateur Middleweights are about that, maybe a bit slower. Honestly, I suggest the Heavyweight classes for the first couple. They aren't as vicious. Middleweight amateur is nuts.

Yep I got the certificate, but didn't apply for lisecense. Is there a deadline for register?

No deadline for registering I usually register on Saturday morning. Registration just determines your grid position the sooner you do the better grid position. No big deal though.

But I will second what grover said, run your 600 in the heavyweight class, especially for the first weekend. The AM 600 class is pretty hairy. Ask Tom Kneeinpain about what people in that class are willing to do for a position.

That is true. The LW racers are polite and even give you a wave when they go by you. The MW guys will stuff, punch, kick, brake check, and whip you with chains going down the front straight.

Not ALL of them do this. Couple are a bit serious about this stuff.

Pol, if everybody said that, the grid would be empty, especially in the expert lightweight class. The goal of the first couple race weekends is to keep the f'n thing upright. Worry about placing, winning later on.

That being said..when the heck is Gingerman results going up? Or did we drive out there for no points?

I didn't thinking of winning. I was thinking when they passing me, it gonna be dangerous.

Suppose they run 10 sec. faster than me (1.23-1.13) . That's mean every turn they run 1.15 sec faster than me. That is like some hurrican just blow pass me. I'm not sure if I am ready for that.

I will decide after come back from Barber

Nismo, again run your bike in the Heavyweight classes. Even if the the front runners are doing tha pace, the passing is clean. Middleweight can get hairy because those guys battle it out pretty good up front. But just enter the Heavyweight classes and you'll be fine. People like Brian Hall will be passing you and when he does trust me he'll be gone before you ever even knew he was there.

Don't let lap times scare you off, seriously just go to the other classes and you'll be fine. Last blackhawk round there was some guy in the lightweight classes running far more than 10 seconds slower than the lead guys, and he came out unscathed.

Oh and Chris, I've been checking too plus I got my Dunlop certs but they were only for the last Blackhawk round so obviously CCS has not go the points updated yet.

bump

Yeah, I'm a good 8 or 9 seconds slower than the lead folks in amateur, and 11 or so slower than the experts. Sucks when you don't have anybody to play with. When you do though it's a hoot, even when you lose.

Yeah, it's a lot of laughs. You've got to turn off the natural reaction of avoiding contact and be willing to hit people (which, of course, will most likely end up in a crash anyway).

Yellow plate racing is inherently dangerous. The real crazy ones get enough points and move up to expert. Then they complain that the pro guys run them off and punt them around. Then they try to pro race and are moving chicanes. So there is justice for them and what goes around comes back to bite them.
