          Next WSCC event is July 8th... a few club members are going to Calgary for a regional event this weekend. I was lucky enough to score a ride in a Corvette for this event. The Clagary Sports Car Club scored a sweet vacant parking lot near their main airport, hard to resist a good site and some hanging out with the Calgary autocrossers. I will post back with some video after the event.

          Here was my best in the C5Z06 from this past Sunday:



          BTW the newest Nexen N Fera SUR4G tire is AMAZING. We are using 265/35/18's (tiny for the Vette) and they were stupid fun, you could slide the car around and catch it much easier than the RE71R's.  Not sure if they are grippy than the current Rival S or RE71R model but in my opinion they are easier and just plan more fun to drive on at the limit. Would make a sick drift tire too.

            Joined the WCMA regional event in Calgary last weekend as a crodriver in a Corvette Z06 and 4 other local autocrossers from Winnipeg. Their site near the airport was fantastic, they have a 400x900ft lot for courses. Since we are in Calgary the site is not 100% flat, the back (west) of the lot was much lower and the north site also slightly lower, this gave us really interesting camber/banking situations, going uphill or turning with the banking gave more grip and vise versa. Really fun to include that in the game plan for a good run. The lot grip was much higher than St Andrews where we usually run since it was clean, unbroken concrete, this was also a pain since everyone's car from Winnipeg tended to understeer a lot more than at St Andrews (Although the Vette was awesome if not better at this site since we oversteer more at home).

            Here's what the autocross lot looked like from the hotel across the street.




            We ran Sat and Sunday but both days had 2 sessions, one in the AM and another in the afternoon with the course run in reverse. Both best times from AM and PM are your total scores, pretty neat I wish we could do that but that would mean starting at 8:30 instead of 11am. We were all pretty happy to see everyone from Winnipeg made it into either the top 11 Raw or top 10 Pax, consider this event had over 70 drivers total not too bad, Well done everyone from Winnipeg!


            Saturday AM (had a little drift action at the end, I can confirm drifting like that is super fun but it's also super slow)



            Saturday afternoon, driving the course backwards.



            Sunday:
            Totally new course from Saturday


            Sunday AM:



            Sunday PM:



            Here's the Sunday AM course for reference (reversed for afternoon):

                          The M2 was in the birchwood booth so unfortunately that wasn't an option for me - but damn that does look like a fast course.

                                    Probably going to the cabin this weekend, but I'll swing by and hang out on my way back into the city!

                                      Just registered for the test & tune this Saturday. Finally got some time off work to try autocross for the first time. Civic is running strong so should be a good day.

                                          Gimli event coming up this Sunday, note the times are different from our regular event. Make sure you pre register for this event and come early as there will be delays crossing the track to get to autocross site. Any questions? Post them here!

                                            Gimli event was a blast, perfect weather, good people, awesome course and really cool cars out at the event. Hoping we get some more event out there next year, so many more options for courses and elements, lot's of fast sweeping turns.

                                            Here's my best run in the Corvette.

                                              Bump, make to pre-register ASAP, we are at risk of loosing food vendors or cancelling the event if not enough people commit.

                                              Forecast for st Andrews is sunny/cloudy with under 30% chance of rain (it's not going to be a rain event), for those concerned.
