What: OVR Test & Tune
When: April 6th, - 7:30AM Site opens, 8:45 Drivers meeting. 9AM Start running
Where: National Trail Raceway
Why/How - Use this time for dialing in suspension setup, shift points, brakes, adjusting to new tires, etc. This event is targeted towards the folks trying to shake down / develop their cars, not the folks who are simply looking for seat time. To serve these needs, the entry has to be capped.
Format is this:
o Each person signs up for an hour to work the course 4 per hour (course open from say 9-4, 7 hrs = 28 people)
§ Working course with only 4 people means you have to hustle from cone to cone quickly, Cones are NOT called in, just set back up quickly, no radios, captains, etc. it is a very self-sufficient setup.
o The remainder or ‘specialty’ folks are basically ‘on call’ or in charge of setup, tear down, tech or ensuring timers continue to work. (Imagine 1 person is set as the T&S person, so if something falsely trips the timer, or something doesn’t work, they are responsible to go make it work/figure it out, then are free to run again)
o If you are not working… you are free to run, quick driver’s meeting in morning to explain both format, and safety issues, such as “Start line is here, you must wait until the previous car passes ‘X’ point (that can be seen from the start) then you are clear to go”
o You could work from 1-2p.m. shift, then you are free to run all you want, or TUNE all you want from 9-1 and from 2-4.
