Matt, tell us where you are, your age, a little about yourself and your project.  There may be someone close by that can help

Welcome, actually there is a class for you to run your S10. All electric vehicles are classed on a weight basis.

Class I   under 1099 lb
Class II  1100-2200 lb
Class III 2201 lb and over

Records are 204, 214, 314 respectively

Good luck,
DW


Thanks.  My S10 is well over 2201lbs but I will be topping out at nearly half the speed for that class record. The rulebooks states that all the safety requirements must be up to the class record.  So I really need to have everything up to 314mph standards?  Even if I am just running for time only?

Thanks,
Kerry

At Speedweek, pretty much. They may cut you some slack. Not a lot. World of Speed 150 club may be your best choice.

One of the Club events at WoS is probably your best shot although if you want to run speedweek you might contact the electric vehicle and/or the truck chairs and tell them what you are doing, they might give you a speed limit, but be aware that all the safety gear to run up to 175 will still be required.  Cage, tires, fire suppression, shut offs, drivers equipment.... pretty much everything but parachutes.
see ya on the salt  8-)

Hello all, I am finally joining after being a long time lurker, live in the Stanwood Washington area been going to the salt last few years and met some nice folks at the Nugget last year.  Looking to possibly run something in 2016 till then I'll just make the drive down again this year and look for a tarp to sit under (driving a 34 3window not much room for mine)  A big thank you to the site and the people who run it for being available to us new bee's.

Welcome Hoss, do you own Salt Talks t-shirts to go with the event shirts you bought?  Jon is having a sale on old shirts and that is a way everyone can support the site while getting race wear at the same time.

Hey Hoss, I am from Kirkland and run a bike and also help on a car that the owners are out of Stanwood area and Yakima. Feel free to drop by our pits when you are down there. Look for bike 1060 or the red Mustang II number 1361.

Thanx for the welcome, I will save up for the salt talks T, needed a waterproof one last year. Basement, sounds like D.D with the red Mustang, will hope to see ya there.  Seems to be a group from the Northwest that makes the trip that I wouldn't mind learning from.

Fellows from Washington State, watch for the Bonneville NW Reunion at the Shilo Inn, Portland Airport property, next February.

People from all over the nation attend. Bench racing interrupted by beer drinking and a marvelous dinner are the norm.

It will be announced on Landracing.com.

Hoss, you are correct sir I try to help Dev and Mickey out as much as I can.  Freud, glad to hear the reunion is in the works for next year. I had a great time at the 2014 event.

Hoss, if you have to save up $7.50 for a previous years racing shirt I would like to suggest you can't afford to go racing....
Look around on the site... see a lot of pop up ads like everywhere else?  The folks that pay to keep it that way look like the guy you and I see in the mirror...  :-D

OK rant over... come on the rest of you lurkers, sign up and post something... I will try to not let Stan run you off the first day  :evil:

Hello...Hi...

OK I am going to be a major minority here but here i go...and why on earth I joined this forum...

My name is Sara Jorgensen, female(not seeing many on here), and an Interior Designer, not a huge car buff. But looking to learn more about this hobby and neat event. I'm a Mom of two young ones - one of which was almost born during speed week last year but was early. Hubby has been talking about going to speed week for years now and this year it falls on his birthday so i was going to see what i could find out on the "professional" forums behind the scenes and see what we learn about the event.

We have a 1931 Model A Coupe - with nice stuff - what exactly... you are talking to the wrong person :) My hubbys dream is to race it on the flats so I'm here to learn more.

Our family has never been to Speed week and hope to make this the first one! Hotel? Camping? RV? Who knows...we shall see. Any guidance would be much appreciated, looks like we are way late looking into things as things seem to be all sold out! yikes...

Excited to read more and learn about a passion you all have.

Thanks
Sara
