Hey Everyone,

Jared here, the WSCC Rally Director. Just wanted to extend an invitation to anyone on TopTier that may be interested in Rally related motorsport events. I'm building up a Rally community here in Manitoba, and have started it off with hosting hot lapping events on the ice racing track. See the event details here:

http://forums.wscc.mb.ca/index.php?/topic/10756-icecross-event-saturday-january-21st/

Any questions, see my contact info at the link! Hope to see you guys out


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Official Event Details:

What?
Icecross style event (driving on a frozen pond, on a track carved out of the snow, in an attempt to get around the course in the quickest times possible)
* Please note that this will not be ice-cross in its true sense, as cones may or may not be used, however future events will stick to a regulated set of rules.

Why?

The purpose of this event is to start establishing a rally community here in Manitoba once again. This event will serve to get drivers out and interested, and is also convenient due to us sharing the track with the ice racers. In addition, the race school is an excellent opportunity for drivers to gain valuable skills from a seasoned expert!

When?


Saturday, January 21st, 2017

Schedule:
10:45 am - Driver's Meeting --> Location: TBD (We'll just congregate together)
11:00 am - 4:00 pm - Ice-cross Lapping --> Let's rip!

We will be doing rotations with the other two groups, so it will run in the following order: 15 min. studded, 15 min. rubber-ice, 15 min. Ice-Cross, repeat

Where?
Mazenod Pond - Off Dugald road, across from the Tim Hortons --> Google Maps Link: https://goo.gl/maps/rBdiYsSNtv82

How Much?
Entry Fee: $60 --> We pay what the ice racers pay, plain and simple

What Do I Need?
1. A current SNELL “M” or “SA” helmet
    - SA is strongly encouraged
    - SA helmet mandatory for all vehicles with factory or aftermarket installed roll protection

2. WSCC Membership --> See here: http://www.wscc.mb.ca/join/

3. Winter Tires --> all season tires are not permitted

4. Register for the event on MotorsportReg --> http://www.motorsportreg.com/events/2017-wscc-ice-race-2-mazenod-pond-winnipeg-sports-car-club-768282

5. Bring a bucket to put all your belongings in (Rubbermaid tote, for example), as you will need to remove all loose items from your vehicle before you head out on the track.

6. Vehicle must be dimensionally wider than it is tall (same restriction as Autocross)


How Do I Sign Up?
Follow the links above, or text/call me at (204) 294-0286 with any questions/concerns.

To answer some common questions:
1. No, you do not need any special modifications to your vehicle. You can show up with your daily-driver (Toyota Tercel, or EVO X, doesn't matter), or your full blown race-car. This is about having fun no matter what you're in, and challenging your skills as a driver. The only requirement is that the vehicle be wider than it is tall (identical rules to Autocross)

2. Do I need a WSCC membership? Yes, this is mandatory for insurance purposes

3. Where can I get a helmet? You can either borrow one from a friend (lots of people in the city that do Autocross, or HPDE that have purchased helmets in the past. OR, go to Classic Motorworks or other speed shops in the city and pick one up for yourself

4. Am I going to have fun? Um, heck yes. This event allows you to do everything you already do when we get a snow storm, but without the worry of being charged for it.

5. Will I become Ken Block / Colin McRae once I've completed this event? No... But if you keep getting involved and participating, then you absolutely have a chance!

Let's get this community going, and have a blast doing it! We had an awesome time 2 weeks ago with an all-Subaru turnout, and the guys learned a bunch! Hope to see everyone out!

          In my experience it just deters people from going through the hassle of registration.

            That's too bad then if that happens. The only way for the motorsport community to grow is for local enthusiasts to be active members of their regional sports car clubs, and attend events!
