Pre-registration for Event 2 closes this wednesday at 6pm HST limit 90 drivers

 

https://www.motorspo...lawa-lot-371727

 

Currently there are 74 signed up

 

You need to buy a Snell M2005 or later helmet since loaners are no longer available.

 

Then Event 3 will be Feb 28 so save the date. Pre-registration will be available later - stay tuned

 

Results from Event 1  80 drivers

 

SS class

Jeffery G 23rd on raw time overall, 28th on Pax overall, 3rd in SS out of 3 drivers

 

SM class

I finished 2nd on raw time overall, 7th on Pax overall, 1st in SM out of 7 drivers

 

Relatively long course with one cross over and three tight U turns, two offset 4 cone slaloms. Good weather most of day, a little damp in the first heat. cloudy and windy which means race tires did not heat up much.

Event 3 pre-registration opens 2/20 at 9am HST and has a limit of 10 in Rookie Class, new drivers may sign up

https://www.motorspo...lawa-lot-371060

 

Results from Event 2  76 total drivers

I finished 3rd on raw time overall, 10th on Pax time overall, 1st in SM class out of 4 drivers. Definitely noticed that my old race tires do not have much grip left so will need to adjust.

SCCA Hawaii Event 6 Results

March 28 at Aloha Stadium lower parking lot

77 drivers total

 

SM class

I finished 2nd on raw time overall, 13th on Pax overall, 1st in SM out of 5 drivers. Lost on raw time by 0.3 sec to an STR class Miata with newly installed suspension and new street tires, he drove well. I wasn't able to get much traction on cold race tires and 30 sec run time but I did learn enough to nearly match my race time while on street tires. I did try both VDC on and off and felt that the runs were comparible, no loss of control or trouble with VDC slowing me down, each run time within 0.1 sec and limited more by my ability to put together a smoother run.

 

In this case I would say that VDC on or off was comparible for the amount of grip I had with street tires and very short course. During the event the cold race tires that were 3 years old did not offer much grip so when I had VDC off I have much more difficulty controlling oversteer and did spin out. So if you can use new race tires or have enough good grip then VDC off could work fine but with lack of grip you have to check if VDC off could lead to loss of control.
