A little more info to add to what I posted earlier (^up^) on this page.
Currently the days that the Hampton Inn Discount applies to are Thursday night through Sunday night. We are trying to expand on that, on both ends.
When you call mention either LTA or Loring Timing Association as your discount code.
The Hampton Inn has a small cash bar, but there is the "Irish Pub", located within walking distance ( a block) for either solid or liquid refreshments. Also,as I previously said, there are plenty of dining facilities in Presque isle. There is also a restaurant in the Presque Isle Conf Center, sister hotel to the Caribou Inn. Also Walmart and Home Depot, to give you an idea of the towns' size.
All this will be posted shortly on the Website Lodgings/hotels section.

When will the web site be updated with current records?
Will there be certificates for the records from 2009?
When will registration forms be posted?  We already reserved our rooms.

Records, 200 club stuff, Certificates, all will be posted or sent soon, probably within a month.
Same with registration.  You take care of getting to Loring and getting rooms, we'll  take care of the racing.

We are thankful for this records post, but can't verify exactly how accurate it is or isn't.
Each individual on that list is aware of their speeds, and that they obviously hold the original record for the class if no one else that weekend went faster.
We will not have time to accumulate and verify all the times for inclusion in the rulebook for this year, you'll have to be satisfied with them eventually being posted on the LTA  Website.

Bob --

I'm glad your first event was such a great success -- and it looks like you will be even more successful in the future.  I also imagine that you weren't able to carefully scrutinize entries for class compliance as entered.  I would think that the times reported were accurate, but records involving SCTA or ECTA classes (at your distance) might be suspect in some cases.  Even so, I wish Maine were closer to SoCal!

While I am not speaking for Bob, I can tell you that the majority of the cars that I was around ran the same classes as they do at ECTA.   The motorcyles were closely looked at and I do believe that most of them also were running the same classes as they do at Maxton.  I know that I did on both cases.

The LTA will post anything official. 

The above post is only the highest speed for each class, and for information only.  The slower speeds for each class that were on the run list were not posted, only the highest.  By instruction, first runs were (at least supposed to be) one class below license (ex. C ran D) and the next runs were to be at class limit (ex. C ran C).  So, the later runs were obviously the highest (ex. C ran B, and now someone has new class lic :-D :-D).   It was a major temptation to hang it open the first time out.  But the event was run rather efficiently and it was not an issue to get multiple runs.  We had a C license when we arrived and ran 146 first run (C ran D).  2nd was at class and we ran 173 (C on C).  Later runs were open and we ran over 175.  Excellent experience.

Personally I think this is a big disappointment. Yes I do understand how much work is involved because I spent a good bit of time working with Donna after the meet to accumulate the runs and records for the bikes. I guess I wonder how much is left to do?

Many of us like to have an official professionally printed copy of our accomplishments (ie: records in the rulebook) and if they're not printed for the 2009 season and they're topped in the 2010 season then they'll never make it into a rulebook.

The meet isn't until August how is there not enough time?

Cut and paste what is posted.  I came up with the same thing with 10 minutes of work from the run log.  Motorcycles would take about 20 minutes of work.

Wide Open,
The post I made with the speeds are from the results.  There are differences in the log and results.  I am sure Bob wants to correct before publishing.  9603 (run 231 vs 340) has faster early pass,  8369 is probably 9369, 6769 result is different then log (run 262 - 179 vs. 176 mph).  Run number is from counting the time stamp.  I think it will take a little time to sort out, but I would hope before the rule book comes out.  I checked it for our effort and those numbers are correct.  But, I was not at impound for each car to see who did or did not stop for recording records.  The list is the fastest speed for each class from the results page.  ASSUMING people stopped it would be the current records.  But, there are the above minor descrepencies.  Again, LTA will post what ever is the official info.

Bob,
I would be happy to help.  There were only 122 car passes made so it should not take a major effort.  I am sure folks want to know current and open records before sending in the registration info.  Some folks (including me) would rather set a slow open record, rather then run against a higher current record and/or go home empty handed.  As you told me, it helps to have class jumping in order to offset the start up costs.  You have my number.


To the other fellow dreamers,
Car 55 ran the first 200 mph car pass (run 109) and ran the highest car speed 216.6 (run 211).   :cheers:  
AND, cars 9555, 9095 and 531 also ran over 200.   :cheers:

Bob, firstly, please do not misconstrue my intent here, it is not to give you a hard time or hassle you, but your comments above sound like the LTA does not know who ran what speed, in what class and who set records ! 

I'm sure everyone had fun, but isn't a Record the whole point of this event ?

From looking at the Results page of the LTA website, I'm presuming you guy's kept run records and had registration information.  The three lists show results sorted by speed and vehicle, so all you have to do is match them up with registration information to produce an "official" list, right ?

Your site says it was only 390 runs, so what is the problem ?
Do you require assistance to manipulate the data ?
I can help if you want and could have a compiled list in one day.
 :?
Be safe, go fast, have FUN !
