    Hey all-

    Scott and I have come up with the course for the event. Hopefully you like something a little different. Back in the day, when Grayden would come up with something like this, we accused him of having mexican for breakfast (or sometihng like that).

    Nice - something different for Peru! I like it, but is it going to limit simultaneous runs too much? It will be hard to have more than 1 car on course for more than a short period of time. Design looks pretty cool though. I hope there aren't many people.

    Scott and I talked about the reduction in throughput of runs on course due to the crossover, but we truly wanted to try something different, so we accepted the situation to get the layout.

    There are currently 24 cars entered. Hopefully we get a good number, but not so many everyone has to stay super late to run.

    Close- the cars line up at the stage cones, not at the start cones, which makes it a little more challenging to launch car #2 before the first finish their second pass through the slalom. It was done that way to keep the staged cars further from the slalom in case someone wipes out. I think you have to wait for the car to ge tothe last slalom cone in their second pass through to start car #2.

    That's a long course! I don't see any tedious extra slow places though so I will enjoy it. I like slaloms so I should get my fill of them on that one!

    The series wide schedule on soloseries.org states that FWR hosts events at Grissom both on Sept. 25 and 26. True of false? The FWR Web site only shows an event on Sept. 26.

    I'd appreciate a clarification.

    The 25th (Saturday) is only setup - no competition that day. Soloseries.org is no current with our schedule or my contact info.

    The 26th (Sunday) is the competition event.

    Let me know if you have questions.

    Jason,

    Thanks for the clarification. You may want to get with Kim Bollinger, who, I believe, is the keeper of the series-wide solo schedule. I remember also seeing a Kruse event, which is not shown on the FWR Web site. I know there are people out there, including me, who look at the schedule on soloseries.org, so you may want to make sure it is accurate.

    Sorry for any confusion there was with this. I tried getting everything changed and switched with everyone who had our schedule. See you Sunday - going to be a fun event for sure, lots of peeps coming from all over.

    Cheers,

    We had great weather and a nice field. With the shortened course it all worked out just fine. Four runs seemed about right.

    Thank you for the kind words Tom - we did learn a lot with this course style and I know Scott took some notes to help tweak things on his original layout. Him and I were both bummed we could not do the original layout - but we might have only got two runs in with it.

    As for the four runs - when I had three National winning drivers come and ask if we would do four runs instead of the five - I was not second guessing the change, although - I wish I could have had one more run :P The long slalom was a blast, especially when you come to the cross over, it made it really interesting and fast if you setup for the pointer cone after the wall of laid down cones.

    Thank you,

    Jason

    I managed the crossover though it was tricky. The last too tight turn is the type I don't much like. With one that brings you down so slowly in a low powered car like a Miata you have so little power to accelerate to the finish. Now if you have a very tight one like that and the finish is close enough to finish it out in first, that would be fine. We had one like that at the terre haute site last year.

    On my last run which I had nailed everything up to the above mentioned turn when I pulled my foot off the gas to brake I caught the edge of my shoe on the brake pedal on the way up and ended off course by the time I disentangled it.....bummer.

    BTW, I would not have minded two runs on the original course design. It was so long you might hve been able to win with a cone!;)

    Fun event yesterday! I wasn't in love with the course when i walked it but it was a lot of fun to drive. It was a course that rewarded patience, something I struggle with but it forced me to work on it and it payed off!

    So now that the invaders came and picked Indy's pocket of the Hoosier Challenge trophy, we have to get Cincinnati involved officially and make it the Hoosier / Buckeye Challenge.

    Thanks for a very fun event!!!! Apart from my horrific spin on my frist run, I thought it was a very fun. I have to say the spin was fun, too, just not good for times :) Looking forward to future Hoosier Challenges!!!!

    Not too many turned out good, but here's the pics that did. Sorry if I didn't get your car, I gave a shot at a bunch, heres what I was left with after dropping all the front end and rear end only shots...

    Thanks for the pics!

    Thanks also to all those who put on a good event. I'm glad we did 4 instead of 5 runs.

    I didn't realize that so many national level drivers were there! Wish I stayed around a little longer to pick some of their brains...
