  • St. Cyr’s Expectations and Improvements- They are requiring that we use the lower entrance, (weather permitting) and driving up to the pitting areas of the track. Rick would like manual labor help with the following projects; Finishing metal stairs for drivers stand. Building the walkway around the south sweeper. Building a new announcers booth with unobstructed views of the track and pitlane. Fixing the scoring loop. The St Cyr’s and On-time Services have provided a lot of essential amenities and equipment to help RCSR keep TZRP in optimal shape. A request has been put in for the possibility of splitting the profits from the TZGP, roughly $1000.

 

It was moved and seconded to split the profits of TZGP 2016 with the St. Cyr’s.  The motion was unanimously approved.

RCSR Track Improvements and Responsibilities

We need new decking for the drivers stand at a rough cost of $400. Karen would like to see Race Central repainted $100

Our normal responsibilities to the track are; Porta Potty maintenance- $130 per visit, 2 drums of methanol for traction compound- $215 a drum, $430 total. ½ Barrel of Lane choice Traction compound- $375  

It was moved and seconded to approve track improvements and responsibilities expenses.  The motion was unanimously approved.

  • Trailer Maintenance-Probably can get away with a general cleaning of the trailer this year again

Discussion regarding Kings Kruze took place.  This race relates directly to the need for trailer maintenance.  It was moved and seconded to cancel the Kings Kruze race for this year.  Motion passed with all in favor and one abstention.  Ryan will notify Richard Donavon and Gateway Community Church.

2015 Income & Expenses

  • 2015 Started with $3825
  • 2015 Member & Race fees $965
  • TZGP Profit $1934
  • Total $6724
  • 2015 Expenses $3791
  • 2015 End Of year $2965

 

Last year’s budget was discussed.  It was moved and seconded to approve income and expenses as presented.  The motion unanimously passed.

  • Tire and fuel sales will be made through Rick- He will also take PayPal but we must add 5% fee to total.

Ryan will manage all sales through Rick.  No action was taken on this item.

  • Points, Participation Series race? Would we like to have a Points system and or a participation raffle with an end of year cash payout?

A series idea discussion was led by Jeff Holt.  A motion was made and seconded to have Jeff organize and implement a points/participation series.  The motion passed with one objection.

  • Member Dues & Race Fees- Currently $20 for RCSR membership and $5 race fees, unlimited classes. $10 for Non-members. Do we change this to a $5 Racing fee and $5 per class Participation fee for end of year Raffle?

 

The item was discussed, but no action was taken.  The points/participation series will have to be developed before we make decisions on race fees.  Dues and fees will remain the same as last year until the points/participation series is developed.  Then, the issue will be revisited.

A motion was made and seconded to discontinue TNT for this year.  Motion passed unanimously.

Club Race Day with more than 30 Entries!

Wow!!! What an amazing day of racing! Over 30 entries on an absolutely beautiful day. Track conditions were top notch with racing being at the highest level this year.
SS/Vta was hot and fiery with Ryan Brownlee, Dennis Capper and BRENDEN! Newbury all winning an “A” but Ryan took the overall with a tie-breaker of 2 seconds over Brenden.
17.5 saw Brian Shook win A1 but then Brad Borneil take A2, letting everything come down to A3. But the calm, cool, collected pasty white guy from up north made all the right moves and stayed out of trouble to take A3, yes I’m talking about Brian Shook
10th Scale Nitro had Old Man Dana McKee making his return to the racing scene and also taking TQ in th class with the other old guy Rick St. Cyr in the second spot. Ryan Newbury, still breaking in a motor, had an ace up his sleeve, with his beautiful wife pitting his car. (Yes, it’s my race report, Lol) The start went off uneventful except for Ryans car majorly bogged on the start letting Dana and Rick a few seconds away. At about the 7 minute mark, Rick had front shock failure letting Ryan into second position. Ryan’s fuel load was only lasting 3 minutes to Dana’s 5 meaning Ryan had to pit 2 extra times. Forward to the last 3 minutes of the race, after Melissa Newbury’s stellar pitstops, had Ryan within 10 seconds of Dana. Ryan left nothing on the track, using up his car and his tires. With Dana getting out of shape, on the last lap at the start finish line, Ryan and Dana were banging doors all the way across the line with Ryan taking the win with a .01 margin.
GT8 had the debut of Ryan Brownlee with his X3 ride taking the TQ and GT8 veteran Mike Biscieglia in the second position. They ran most of the race 1-2 until Mike had clutch problems letting the other new GT8 guy Brad Borneil into second place. Ryan B prevailed with the wire to wire win to take his first GT8 win. Now he needs to sweet talk his girlfriend to let him race in the TZGP
1/8 Open was the biggest class of the day with Kody Knutson and his ARC R8.0 taking TQ for the day. During the race, Kody clipped the grass, removing his side belt but was still able to recover to take the win. Tom Camou overcame a blown shock in warmups to take second, with that new, old guy Dana Mckee in third.

Next Sunday will be a practice day with June 20th being the next race day! Thanks to everyone for coming out!
