27th ANNUAL HALLOWEEN GRAND PRIX

Well that time of year has come once again. Pre-registration is now open for the Halloween Grand Prix. Payment for entries is due at the time of sign-up. Pre-registration closes on October 16th at end of business for that day. Entry and pass prices increase after closure of pre-registration. You can call to pre-register with credit card or stop in the office to pay with cash.

SCORING and POINTS Updates

As most of you know, from announcements at drivers meetings, we have had a scoring points snafu this year. Too many details to bore you with but suffice to say that most could have been avoided. Good news is, that with some of your help, we think we have solved ALL problems with our Leagues (Jr, Sr, & Friday) along with points race championships and also WRS. We think we have recovered lost data so check Mylaps championships for standings.

Our goal, for the future, is to ALWAYS publish on speedhive. The scoring system will NOT allow more than one kart per class with the same number without confusion in points totals. Sometimes adjustments have been made, behind the scenes, to allow the system to work for the day but not always for season totals. Points are given to the driver, not the kart, which most of the time is the same.

We will be returning to asking racers to adjust their number, if there is duplicate in their class, to avoid two areas of confusion. First is points as noted above. Second is to avoid any possible penalties being assessed to the wrong culprit. When we have multiple karts in the same class with the same number, it could happen that we black flag the wrong kart. I am sure that being incorrectly penalized is no ones goal, including ours. We will be expecting number changes to avoid these problems.

REGISTRATION and BANQUET Thoughts

We have new people out at registration and some of you pre-register and some do not. Our newer staff has not got fully acquainted with everyone at this point. They are trying their best to speed up signing in. We have a request to assist them in doing a thorough job. PLEASE stop and sign in before driving to park. When you drive by without stopping, it disrupts their thoroughness and slows down the system. Thank you for your help in this matter.

Banquet thoughts so far are: input has been that we were VERY lucky with weather last year and we should look to have a banquet inside this year and we agree. Input on food has been that both last years food and years before are both good and we agree. Now that COVID is again becoming an issue, and masks are currently mandated by our Gov, we are not completely sure how that may effect us. Feel free to give us your thoughts as we continue to plan.
