+1! After Race 1 at Thunderhill, I spoke with the Conference tech steward and asked for more tech on Sunday. I retired early so nobody looked at me and I don't know if anything additional was done (hey- that was my plan all along!) but if we drivers ask for it, we will get it (eventually).
On the other side of the coin, we have to realize there are some practical limits. Space, staff and of course time. If we came to the track for two races per weekend and we had dedicated tech staff (a la MX5 Cup or World Challenge/etc), there would be no shortage of oversight and tech. But at TH, for example, there were 300 entries in 7 groups and 28 classes who all needed tech. Could more be done? Sure - but it's not always going to be for us even if we are a more competitive class.
As for Jamz saying you don't write letters and you don't file protests: "if you don't vote, you don't have the right to complain". Suggesting ideas or bitching here accomplishes ZERO. There is a procedure for making your opinion heard and it's called crbscca.com.
Glad to hear you asked for more Brian. At Hallett I finished 4th on the track and got bumped up to third after the stewards ruled on a dust-up towards the end of the race. I got no tech whatsoever which was kind of surprising.
In Southwest division the same tech folks typically have to tech ALL cars. That's why they pick simple things like weight or restrictor plates in or out. One cannot honestly expect an individual to know everything there is to know about a Miata an SRF an AS Firiebird and P1 Stohr.
