I did not find it in Sups or otherwise, last year it was spelled out though, pro start on pro start stand, which as an mostl likely always will be on back straight. Most other SCCA starts are on front straight, while all NASA on back straight...

Cabe, Cabe are you awake, can you please tell us where the start will be?????

Den, look forward to seeing you out there, I am sure Cabe will reply with the facts before the race, so you will know, but betting it on the back with checker on front straight.

Could it be that I am wrong?? been that many times and wouldnt suprise me... If I am wrong about this, it is because I have it confused with the IT Spectacular, one of the two, we started on back straight I do beleive, but so many races at mid Ohio they are all runnign together, in my mind, cant even remeber which ones where nasa or scca anymore.

Skip it & bring your 1.6 to the June Sprints joining a couple other quiet quick 1.6's. Road America can handle 100 at a time.


Dont be confused... There is a difference between Fast dirvers and fast cars, Hille is Fast driver, in decent car, and I dont believe you get an argument from him...

Me slow driver in Fast car, equal so so race results...

I would love to run sprints, and I hate to whine, but I don't think the car can compete with the top 10 there.

I wouldn't mind starting on pit straight it would be a nice change of pace..

Confirmed with Chief Steward for the Shootout.

Starts and Finish will be on the front straight. And we will be running the Club Course (with the bus stop before the keyhole).

Impossible! I was assured that it will be the pro course with a pro start. Your data is flawed Cabe. :tipsy:

66 cars starting on the front


I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say part of the field will be starting in Thunder Valley.

Let's ask the chief stewart if they will move the start/finish line to just before the bridge.

Jerry the supps say we are running the pro course, Plus I find it hard to belive that Grand am would run the club course???

Last year we ran the pro course.

I've been in Old T-14 several times when the Green Flag drops. Cannot get the back markers to close ranks. I guess I should qualify faster than them.

I will guarantee you that Grand Am will run the Pro Course.

What we run, there appears to be conflicting info. The Supps say the Pro Course is 2.38 miles. My information is that the Pro Course is 2.258 miles, and the Club Course is 2.38 miles. SCCA allows 25 cars per mile, and with special permission, 10% on top of that. So if we run the Pro Course, we would be limited to 62 vehicles, with the Club Course, 66 vehicles. I get to run both configurations during the year so I don't have an issue with which one we run. Given a choice, I would vote for the Club Course (but then I don't pass too many people).

Well that would make sense that they want the bigger course so they would run the club. however looking at it another way, putting in the chicane so it eliminates a passing zone making 66 cars even more difficult. Unless we get cancellations it does not look like there is a choice.

Do we understand that we are going to be parking in the same place as last year, and marked off exclusive for SCCA only?

My phone's smarter than I am.

The Regional Hoosier Contingency by Hoosier Tire Midwest will apply since this is an SCCA sanctioned regional race. Since it has a single sanction, the final race on Sunday is the one that counts. It also applies to all classes, not just SM. Contingency requirements and info available on the division website at www.greatlakes-scca.org

That is what I was told a couple weeks ago, but things change at Pro events about as fast as M-O weather. There is to be a roped off area for our paddock, supposedly near the shower house. Look for Willy Church's flat black motorhome and trailer.

Tech and Steward meetings to be in the paddock. BTW, No tent camping in the paddock area.
