I don't have have a horse in the over 125 mph race and if the weather, hardware and 'software' all cooperate there should be more than enough time to get a lot of runs and ramp up from 125.  As a novice I would enjoy the chance to get the feel of the track.

That said, if things don't go as planned, I could see those drivers with a proven track record of 10+ passes over 175 mph being allowed to start at 150.  I'm also not sure it makes too much sense for someone who is already in 2 or 3 200 clubs to make pass at 125 especially if it is in a vehicle that has a real high maintenance turn-around.

I really thought we'd covered all this.
I don't care who you know, EVERYBODY is a NEWBIE.
it's all about SAFETY. every one will be scrutinized according to all their info. The vehicles potential, both in speed and possible handling issues, the driver/riders skill experience, it's our responsibility to protect you,.... and our investment.
It seems there are actually individual's that think because they have a AA at SCTA they can go 200 off the trailer at Loring ? Not on my watch, Boy Racer...
I will not cover this again, trust me you will be satisfied in the opportunity to make enough runs top have wrung out whatever your junk is capable of.
Anybody dumb enough to run over the limits we set in tech is obviously liable to be escorted out.
RANT over....hopefully point is made..
Let's have a good time, a good safe time, the conditions are great, but there is always a learning curve, everyplace.

Mr. Warner, just so we're crystal clear, are you saying everyone will have to start with their 125 pass, 150 pass, etc etc?

Thanks,

A.

no.
If you qualify for a higher speed you will start with a higher speed. Only the annoying guys will be required to start at annoying low speeds. It's not favoritism, it's Safety, based on the Driver/Rider, Vehicle, but mostly on none of you   EVER BEING HERE BEFORE.
I'm OK, I have GrandKids. Next letter gets a time out...

Ali,
YOU, and only you, have to start at 65mph because you spelled Bwana Bob's last name wrong! :cheers:
