I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for bearing with us these first couple weeks of racing. There are a few new faces on the board this year so we are trying our best to have things run smoothly and safely. We hope you are having fun so far at GVKC this season! And as a reminder there is NO racing this coming weekend but the track will be open Saturday May 23 for anyone that just wants to get some practice in.
Just a reminder that the track is closed for Mother’s Day weekend. Enjoy your time with family…and we’ll see you next week!
It’s opening weekend! We’re excited to welcome you back. Just a few reminders to get your season off to a smooth start:
GREEN GREEN GREEN!
Thank you to everyone who participated in our email poll to let us know whether you’re interested in racing the track in reverse this season. Results from our initial poll:
The board has not yet made a decision on whether/how to schedule reverse racing dates in 2015 — most critically, because we are still awaiting blue bags that would safely support different racing configurations. We also want to carefully consider how reverse racing would impact attendance.
So far, we are hearing that a majority of members think it would be fun and challenging to try racing with a new configuration. Yes/no answers are not clearly divided by class. If you have not yet weighed in, please let us know what you think:
GVKC’s 2015 rulebook is now available! The board would like to thank everyone for your patience with the editing process.
Changes in this updated version include:
• The addition of GVKC’s 2015 mission statement
• Refinements to class structure / specs
• More detail for helmet requirements
• More detail for weather cancellation and rainout policies
• A scale house weight check procedure
• More detail on how points are calculated
Please make sure to download a copy and review the rules before your first practice or race day. We’ll see you soon!
