Re: Question

Tom King ·
Hi Julie and Wally, Neither the start nor the finish are exactly on mile markers anymore. Here are a couple of my measurements that might help: Start 0.000 County Line sign 9.402 LN-14 83.571 LN-10 87.590 LN-8 89.572 Finish 90.000 Blue has published some Rookie Notes that show slightly different mileages (see attached). Good luck!

Re: New Record??

Tom King ·
Hi Robert, Jim Peruto is a great and fearless driver. His average speed in September was up until the race was red-flagged, so I'm guessing it doesn't count as a whole-course record. In the May event, Jim averaged almost 200 in occasionally-blinding sandstorm conditions, and in September he was averaging 216 when red-flagged before the Narrows. With some better luck and conditions, I bet Jim gets into the Guiness Book of World Records pretty soon. It will be well-deserved.

Pete, thanks for the information about tire inflation. I have read that inflating with nitrogen doesn't make any difference because the air is 70% nitrogen anyway, however, the book did not discuss water vapor. I will probably use air for now, but keep the nitrogen in mind in case I make it to a higher speed. Remind me to buy you a cold one of your choice when we meet up. Brad

SSCC will have to address your question #2. I could write a book about the "damage" to your car question. Some hints; 1. make sure in advance of the event of your carriers' definitions, and policy relative to "rally", "race", "speed contest" and so on, 2. some insurance companies use this very web site as an "investigative" tool to determine whether they will or will not provide coverage, 3. virtually no insurance company will cover a car in a race, 4. every time anyone refers to this event...

Re: 5 PT. Harness system required ?

Former Member ·
Randy, Page 18 of the rule book states "5 or 6 point harness required.", and further refers to shoulder "belts." Sean, are you saying that the rule has been changed so that 4 point mounting, as asked, is OK or that it can be waived depending on the mounting ? Carl

Re: 5 PT. Harness system required ?

David Carpenter ·
I have a C-5 w/o sport seats. No pass thru for belts. 5 pt harness HAS to go around upper part of seats. If I didn't use a sternum belt---the harness would simply fall off my shoulders---even without the stress of racing. Now they are as snug at the end as they were to start. Over the seat can be a problem with 'y' harness. Each case is different. If the seat back is tall, angle can be right or wrong for stress load. Or it falls off the side of seat back. If seat back is low, you've got a...

I have been open road racing for 6 years with SSCC and CARS. I know Mike & Marsha through SSCC and I believe that they are a Class Act and will enhance the sport of ORR. As a plain racer, all I want to do is race and enjoy the company of people I have met in ORR. I hope that at least a common rule book can be produced. Thank you, Jim Marz

Re: Parachutes ???

OK I'll throw out some observations/opinions on drag chutes. The 2004 NHRA rule book says that a car that can run 150 mph or better in the quarter needs a chute.

I have never used a chute in a car. Richard would have a much better take on car use than me. Most of my aircraft drag chute use was in the F-100 and...

Hi Mike, Buy an SA2000 rated helmet. Depending on what speed you run, you could get by with an older rating, but why chance it? Also, if I were you, I'd download the rules book and make a checklist of safety and car needs for the class you're going to run. I haven't been doing this very long, but from my first event on, I've seen drivers experience undue frustration and stress over things that could have been avoided with 10 minutes worth of reading.

The following changes apply to any participant for the Speed-Stop Challenge, the Highnoon Shootout and Sunday's event on Highway 318: No Nitrous Oxide Injection or similar power increase is allowed. If the vehicle is such equipped, the bottle must be removed from the vehicle. No parachutes. If vehicle is such equipped, the parachutes must be removed from the vehicle.

Ray, in the strictest sense, Eric could have barred you from running in May under this rule had he chose to.
