I realize making all the Paddock assignments is quite challenging, but sometime in the near future, will it be possible for us Workers and Spectators to see, in advance of the event, a layout with names (i.e. a "who is where") type map? What was used for Daytona/MidOhio was quite good in that you could press on a spot and see who was paddocked there. Thanks again for all you all are doing!
Mark - that is what is now available at https://runoffsparking.motorsportreg.com - it will be available during the Runoffs as well to help you find people. Team names will also be searchable if you need to locate a part or paddock setup.
today was the day to sign up for add'l test days. registration wont let me edit my existing entry and i cant find a link to register for test days?
I'm assuming I have to purchase a paddock spot for my trailer and a separate camping spot for my motorhome. Is this right or can I combine them in one spot?
I did not see the choice of garage parking in the paddock choices. How do we get on the list for Gasoline Alley garages?
Echo Paul's comments below. I have not entered the Runoffs since 1994, but I can say this was easy. Thanks!
Thanks SCCA and MotorsportsReg for making this year's registration smooooooth! I understand the reasoning behind what you had done the past few years with the in house registration but this was truly painless.. I did it on my iphone while taking a walk! Separating out the land grab was also a great idea. You guys always get the complaints so I just wanted to make sure you got a Compliment as well.
The archives showing the record of every runoffs participant (ever) were updated each and every year until 2014. Has this practice been abandoned? Am I the only one who noticed or cares?
In 2016 we were able to run 28 races within the same time schedule as the proposed 2017 schedule. Why do we have 25 minutes in between races? Last year we ran 10 races on Friday and we're right on time for the 10th race. Why is it necessary to combine 8 groups and potentially change the outcome of our national championship races? I really think this needs to be fixed. Jmo
According to the current Supplemental Regulations I see that if you need to use the 112 Octane fuel you are going to need to purchase it in a 55 gal. drum. That is more than I have used all season. How are we expected to safely transport home a partial drum of fuel. They had the same requirement last year and it was changed. I hope it can be changes again this year.
??? - Free camping for volunteer workers/officials???
How will the garage selection process work? If I sign up for a GP garage and don't get one can I select a second choice say for a Gasoline Alley garage and third choice multi-card paddock space? Is the selection a lottery or first to sign up starts the line? Or is it a lottery? Will corporate backed race teams get first choice for paddock spaces like they did last year?
I have not see info on this unless I missed it. Will we be able to leave are trailers with racecars at the track Sunday night and pick them up Monday morning to leave town?
Could we please have a 5:50 start time for bspec on the Friday of the runoffs? There is plenty of daylight time to do this. That way t3 and bspec can be separated.
Who allowed a schedule with t3 and bspec to be combined? There is to much speed difference to combine these two classes for a national championship.
That was my initial reaction as well.. But I think it is a bit related to car counts. If we (t3) to group with say T4, it would be nightmare because there are a lot more T4 cars. I think given the combinations of speed and car counts, this fits the best.
In the event and paddock information document found on the 2017 Runoffs page.
Entry is $1,125, and we are worried about a record setting attendance.
Why are we then selling grass paddock spaces as premium?
Get the entry fee right, and charge a premium for paddock spaces that actually offer a premium (power/air/garage/paved).
If we pay to enter, we should be allowed to bring our car closer than a mile (literally) from the rest of the paddock and tech.
Where did you see info on entry fee and paddock spaces?
The Memorandum sent out on 1/13/2017 seems to be an overly complicated mess that could have been avoided had the 2017 Qualification criteria not completely discounted Majors Events points.
The problems I see are as follows;
Someone please correct me if I have misunderstood or misinterpreted something.
IF Indy runoffs were not open to EVERYONE this issue would not have been created. IF it was still a Qualify and invite event car counts wouldn't excepted be sooo high, but SCCA wants all to play in 2017 so this is what we have.
Happy New Year!
Is there any information regarding the Paddock/Garage/RV Parking available to reserve?
Please share any sites that SCCA has set up for the Runoffs other than this site?
Tickets are up for sale on IMS website:
Somebody needs to provide them with a photo of a SCCA race car instead of the vintage car on the page.
Would be interested to know what comes with the tower terrace suite club tickets?
Almost all SCCA cars are vintage.
...even if tickets aren't decided yet...
