Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

So, here we go for first race report. Collin did two days of practice, four sessions per day. It was a flip-flop between him and Mike Lewis for fast time. There we some minor issues that cropped up but nothing that was not easily dealt with by Andy who is down there now. Collin's time, with his RACE...

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

"Even though it was NOT one of my early starts, Byron still needed a quick nap!" I thought that picture did deserve some comment, good job James. Mike set the pace after Hope, in his 350Z, zipping along at 120 - 130 till I pulled off at Mt. Leman, at least for the most part there were no traffic hol...

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

That's it for now, another season done for me, I'm off to Sonoma next week, thanks to all that came out for our drives this past season, we had some good ones. I will be looking at my log book to see how we did this year compared to last. I have a long family association back to the 70's with the Se...

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

And final.... The Lake behind the cars is called Seton Lake, it both feeds a power station as it empties into the Fraser River, and, a few thousand feet above it, is another lake called Carpenter Lake. They tunneled through the mountain and feed another power station half way down Seton Lake, where ...

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

Morning World. Glad everyone made it, safety in numbers for sure. I know my little issue pointed out that some basic things need to be right at hand. Working on a car at the side of a freeway with semi's blowing by is no fun and pawing through stuff in the dark is not the best scenario. We need to h...

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

Oh, I was confused but I see now. I just hate that Sea to Sky/Upper levels/Iron Workers corridor now, it's just too much of a gong show with no escape routes.

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

What a day! Thanks to all for coming out, sorry if it seemed to get scattered at the end. We stopped in Lytton thinking you all were coming behind us, I did not get the memo that you were going the Duffy I guess. That pavement was awesome and we will never get that opportunity again for such a smoot...

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

Morning World !

Clear and 5C in Hope this morning, to be a wonderful day. I'm heading to garage at 5:30 and should hit #1 by 6 to 6:15.

I see no real signs of fog anywhere and Canyon is clear at this point.

See you soon.

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

Morning World,

Drive is a go for sure, our weather is to be spectacular, even well into next week. A dry drive down to Sonoma would be a major bonus.

Do dress warmly for the morning, it will be cool in Hope to start out, 5C.

Going to top up fuel today, check tire pressure, wash car.

Re: OCTOBERFAST 2018

Morning World, I found this camera up above Boston Bar, you can see how nice the fall colours are. When we get to Lillooet, we will go to the gas station first, that is at the start of the Duffy Lake drive to fuel up. It has more room to get cars into. Then maybe we can just pop up the hill a bit fu...
