If you want the best seat in the house at any roadrace event for free, you want to be a marshal. Wave the flags, get track status changes before the announcer. Keep the drivers safe and maybe even have them hang out with you until the end of the race in case of a failure.
The time to get started is now. The NASCC is holding a marshal training session at the clubhouse – 11512-168St. Thursday Jan 20 starting at 6:30.
It will cover things such as what the flags mean and when to use them, hand signals for communication back to the station from a car, basic radio protocol and tips for using them effectively and tricks of the trade to stay warm and comfortable out on the lake.
See you there!
For quite some time the fine folks over at straightpipe.ca (a Canadian motorsport forum) have had a sub forum setup dedicated to the NASCC. At the last meeting it was mentioned that the club may want to utilize a forum to allow better communication between it’s members. We’re proud to say – it’s already there! Go forth and chat!
Check it out by clicking here or use the link on the menu above entitled “Forum”.
We have had to postpone the Winter Driving School and Ice Race 1 to Jan 21-23 or 28-30 weekend, due to poor ice quality at Roy’s Lake and at Telford Lake. Both had bad quality, punky ice, and surface water, perhaps due to last weeks mild conditions. Matt and Thomas put all weekend into trying to plow us a track, but it was to no avail.
Watch this spot for further updates.
If you are interested in the Winter Driving/Ice Race school you can still sign up, and make payment at the classroom session.
Ice Racing/school schedule, Supplemental Regs’, race and school registration, and NASCC membership forms are available under the Racing Menu bar, then under Racer Downloads. or:
For those that need to update from their SA2000 helmet, G&G Racing in Leduc has just got in a shipment of Bell and Simpson SA2010 helmets, mostly large sizes.
