  1. Thanks all, I am always happy to coordinate new opportunities for the club. That being said I put up the details on the "My Track Time" event that was mentioned yesterday. check it out under the event feeler section and let us know that you think.
  2. Additional information for our day at the track. Arriving: 1) For those joining the run, I will coordinate everything at the gate just follow the MINI in front of you. 2) If you are arriving separately, tell the gate worker you are with the SCCA MINI Car Corral. a) Any issues, have them contact Bob Crawford (race chair), Chris Doherty, or Scott Merker. 3) You will be asked to sign the general waiver at the gate, and given a wrist band (don't lose it!) 4) The car corral will be located directly across from the main entrance to the track. There will be large banners and a popup setup denoting the area. (a) Chris will be wearing a BRIGHT GREEN polo shirt. He will be hard to miss. 5) Waivers - Chris will ensure everyone has signed the SCCA waiver in the morning, and we may provide an additional wrist band for the track touring laps. 6) I've attached a map of the track to indicate the main gate and the Car Corral location. During the event: 1. Spectating: You are free to visit any spectator areas or grandstands within the track confines. The outer parts of the track is a great place to watch the racing, and the Car Corral will be in a prime location. a. I strongly encourage everyone to bring folding chairs, umbrellas, etc. If bringing canopies, make sure you have a way to secure them down if it is windy. Use best judgement here. b. We are still confirming if the group will have Paddock access while racing is going on. This is TBD. 2. Technical: We've asked one of our racers (Scott Luttrell) to bring his STU race car MINI by the Corral during the day. Assuming it's running, he'll be stopping by! 3. A live audio broadcast from the announcing booth will be on FM 88.7 Lunch Track Touring laps: 1. Lunch laps: Lunch time laps are limited to 25 and first come first served. Chris will shuttle everyone to paddock and grid. 2. We expect this will happen between 11:45 and 12:30, depending on track cleanup and race group schedules. This could be earlier or later. 3. Lunch laps will follow the Track Tour rules here. Food & Snacks (COVID): 1. There will be coffee and doughnuts waiting when you arrive. 2. We will also be providing light individual portion snacks and coolers with chilled beverages. 3. Due to the continuing uncertainty of COVID and logistics, we won't be able to provide a grill for lunch: a. The 'Che Summit' concession stand will be open in the race paddock. Burgers/dogs/nachos, etc. will be available for purchase. b. Your participants can bring their own meals, grills, snacks, etc. There are no outside food restrictions at the track! c. Your participants can bring beer, wine, alcohol, etc. Just no intoxicated driving during lunch touring laps, which should be fairly obvious
  3. Do you have a VIN you could share. Is this Mini re-VIN as a 1973. Can you add a picture of the engine bay? thanks
  4. I do all my work in VA, but I can highly recommend GTPeace in Chantilly. Great shop that is comfortable with everything from routine service to track builds. A tuned ecu will not bother them.

    I think the Delmarva club was signing up for Annapolis, so that might have filled a lot of there spots
  11. I think a few folks are still attending and I also believe a few from other MINI clubs will be there. It is a good show and worth the trip.
  12. We have decided to cancel the drive to the event due to lack of interest.
  13. Welcome back, look forward to seeing you at an event soon.
  14. It should be in the bottom, that means the filter is stopping it. The air flow is pulled into the bottom of the box, and flows up through the filter and then out the top pipe to the engine. Still good the clean out any debris as fine gravel can prematurely wear the filter or larger debris like leaves can obstruct air flow.
