Here I go dissecting posts again. What an egotistical asshole.
Or maybe I'm just trying to keep the forum accurate and share what I know. Not a lot of point in spreading misinformation.
There might not be a lot of people that post, but I think most of the local members read it at some point. Case in point the thread Bailey made a few days ago - "New Year" - only has 2 posts and it's been viewed 29 times already. Why should I let an idea grow when there's no legal way the club can allow it to happen?

Seems like a pretty one sided slam on an idea to make things more fun and interesting. An idea that's been kicked around for years. An idea I hoped to have a friendly discussion over.
I gave you reasons. I even used smiley face, sad face, and in true Canadian fashion said I was sorry. You act like I said "Your idea is stupid it's never going to happen because I said so" .....after which I promptly kicked your hat into a puddle.

Now I'm just repeating myself, but the rules say no. How am I supposed to make that positive?
See23 wrote:No, I don't pick through the rules like a lawyer OR an accountant, but no matter how bad my Christmas may have been I don't belittle people or their ideas on a public forum.
But I do recall you belittling people about course design, how the club runs events, too many runs, not enough runs, etc. Oh and lets not forget belittling the course workers for moving too slowly. Seems slightly hypocritical no? Welcome to the internet......if you're going to give it you have to be able to take it.......

Good for you Vince
The VCMC Scion event was a very different strategy though. A few quick facts. The cars were provided by the manufacturer, not a dealership. The Scion part of the event was run under their (Scion's) insurance as a "test drive" event. You might recall we had to sign a separate waiver. They also required that all stability control and traction control nannies remained on and a Scion representative was always in the passenger seat.
Related to Ron' recently mentioning rental cars - I remember Glenn won an FRS for a week for winning that event. He actually came to a Kelowna race with it and he and I co-drove Char's car because he was given the FRS under a rental contract......which ironically said he couldn't race the car.

VCMC is the same rules. Off the top of my head most everybody in BC is under the same umbrella except some of the Corvette clubs. Unfortunately you've been led astray by an incorrect post in this thread. As I stated early in the thread the rule is maximum 4 drivers per car - maximum of two drivers per class.
See23 wrote:Which suggests that the rule has to do with competition rather then insurance... or at least that's the way VCMC and that certain Miata owner interpreted it.
The "certain" Miata owner? Wait who owns that car? Oh that's right I do. You don't think someone might have protested all the Mazda money and Hoosiers we've won over the years if we were breaking the rules? Hell Jim even won Canadian Nationals in that car. No protests? Must not have been any lawyers or accountants present to read the rules. Seems like you're just trying to make this personal.........good luck - I don't take internet trolls seriously
