 The BLM should give the SCTA additional stopping distance for safety. Keep the existing back door line, warnings  and  punishments but more room to stop.

  The net with parachutes. caution tape taped to pylons at each back doors.

  Video taping or monitoring of usage behind existing out back line for Sundays on regular weeks to find out how many bikes cars ECT would be affected by additional  500 ft or whatever SCTA would want.

  The problem is the BLM and SCTA.

 Why are you protecting them?

  Anyone interested in what Sparky is trying to hide about the BLM can send me a personal message.

Thank you JL

 I believe that is the proper way to deal with this:

--when they contact you then you can share a link to whatever you wish to share ---you have a point about the BLM you wish to share do so-----

by doing it privately it doesn't involve Landracing.com or the S.C.T.A.

Thanks Again

Looking through some old Hot Rod mags.  Photo of SCTA sanctioned 1/2 Mile Drags Riverside Raceway 1957. They had some race course Pylons that would work great for the finish line at El M.. They could be seen from they start line.

If there is a real problem with people going out the back door why doesn't the scta ask for an extra mile of lake bed.
I love it when a plan comes together!

Hey All,
Someone a few threads back, I think way back, suggested communication with the driver. Why couldn't you simply canabolize (sic) a cell phone headset?
Before start get in communication with your crew chief, wife, husband, or whomever you have meeting you at the finish line. Now I don't know about all coverage on the lake but my Verizon works just fine.
Certainly it will not help with an out of control situation but it's a fairly cheap way to show good faith... "Hey were now in constant communication with our drivers".

Here is a link to lightweight orange plastic netting. It can serve as a "barrier" at the end of the course.

Ever watch Monster Jam?  A truck gets out of control and an official cuts the ignition.

Raciever radios have been suggested at SCTA meetings and are under consideration at this time. The system is a one-way communication system and is currently used at hundreds of circle tracks in this country. I guarrentee you can hear them with a helmet on and engine screaming

The SCTA radio system is compatable with the receivers which have hundreds of channels.

The cost of the recievers for the driver/rider is $100.00. it has been suggested that no one would leave the starting line without acknowedging that they have heard the timing tower communication with them.

I'm sure $100.00 would eliminate 80% of entries do to whining.  We will loose the remaining 20% by their lack of reading the instructions to put them on the correct channel. :-D.......JD

Included in that 20% is those sitting on their mike. This would be accomplished by having their head up.....Well, you know.  :roll:
