Well, the TnT/Solo #2 is complete and so is Solo #3, and Spring National's. So much for updating the site after every event.
Solo #2 is the first time we tried the two heat format. From the event operations side, it seemed to work well. There were things we learned and addressed in the next event. The things we addressed were items that you, the competitors brought up. We need that feedback to gauge what worked well and what needs to be improved. Please keep the feedback coming!
Spring Nationals Pro Solo and Championship Tour were awesome! The practice course was well recieved (after a few changes to speed it up, sorry about that) and we managed to make a little off the proceeds. Somehow, we managed to avoid the worst of the weather that threatened the entire weekend. Big thanks to everyone that worked the practice course and hospitality tent!
Solo #3. Sorry, I wasn't there. My car was in pieces fixing things the FMod collective help identify (#modlife). From the debrief conversations with the Chiefs and Chairs it looks like it was a good day to have fun with cars (that should be a hash tag). One take away we had from Solo #2 was that the lunch break wasn't long enough. Well, we fixed that this time. GOAAALLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!! ...umm...sorry about that...where was I...oh yeah, lunch... So, we made the lunch break longer and it was well received. We also GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ...let's try that again... We also asked if there would be interest in an on-site food truck for those lunch breaks. Thanks to the responces, we have some data we can take to the vendors to give them an idea of the number of sales they could make. I have not reached out to anyone yet to see if they are interested but it's on my list.
And that's the past two months caught up. On to the future!
Next week is a big car week in Lincoln. Formula SAE is having their big end of year competition, Speedway Motors Museum of American Speed is sponsoring a Speedsters Trials & Reunion for cars made before 1935, and we have Solo #4. If you can't get your car fix next weekend, you have issues. We are still looking for a fence crew. Setup is tomorrow (14 Jun) and tear down is Monday 24 Jun. It's the full Nationals fence so the more people, the more better.
Ok, that's enough random rambleing. See you on course!
