FF Raid 2003 question/poll

I want to gauge interest so i am starting a poll. I know that we have had some discussions on here for the new raid. I have seen that poll. I have some questions and will be starting polls and gauging interest in different items over different threads.

We had racing last year at Calder. We have discussed and concluded that we would like to have that again this year, but with a little twist possibly. We would like to do the Drags again as well as a skid pad and/or even a road course. This thread is going to discuss this and what possibilities we have as well as see what you think about this.

I know that last year we had the Drags at Calder. SEVERAL expressed interest in this, but when it came time to do it several did not attend and those that did attend and expressed an interest backed out.

If you have concerns then please speak up. This is what this thread is for. So we can discuss the issues or concerns and see the interest in doign these types of events this year.

I think it's a great idea to have more driving events, the more the merrier! I'm keen to have a crack in the "dinosaur", as AP calls it.

Mind you, it's all good and well to get "expressions of interest", but I think that for this kind of thing we will need CONCRETE commitment. It will need a fair bit of lead time to organise I'm guessing, and in that vein, perhaps we should set a cut-off date and a minimum deposit towards expenses (as with club track days etc)?

Of course, it would all depend on how many would be willing to do this, if the numbers are too few, then it obviously couldn't all go ahead.

My vote - we organise drags, skidpan, anything and everything we can! :s6:

Yeah, we had a few chickens at Calder last year, especially from the 6 cyl class who left me to win the trophy on my own - would have been nice to win it with opposition. :s1

Yes

I would need someone with race experience to drive the minginator.

But more importantly, regardless of the type of car you have, just give it a go, we are in it for the fun, not otherwise!

I for one think it's a good idea,however for those that might not want to cane their cars,how about a motorkhana course. Then it's only them against the clock.It would also be a better test of driving skills,IMO.

WEll i was not in the 6 gang, but i did not run the car that as given to me to run. Of course I took the minginator out for a pass. Sweating bullets thinking that I was going to do something to it and get sat on by Gary!

hehe

I truely think that we do need to get a serious feel of this. THis is something that would be good for the raid and participants. I know that there were members from the site that went and had a run about up in Bathurst. Unless i am in need of my meds again.

Something like this would be killer. If I can get the Cobra over there I will be game for a serious run on the Drags, Road course and of course the skid pad! hehe. If I can get her there then I am going to challenge the minginator to a duel! hehe. Lets get some serious actions going on here.

Of course there would be trophies just as last year for the Drags, if we can agree to this.

Sparkles: I hate to say it but you are right :DOHH:

I would love to have a go. But, no LSD and slush-o-matic gearbox would not equal much fun.

Besides, wouldn't want to whole of FF's to laugh at me when I keep loosing it.
