Default Wendover ProSolo 4/25-26

The Wendover ProSolo replaced Alameda on the SCCA ProSolo Schedule about a month ago. It takes place on some sweeeet concrete in the middle of nowhere -- Wendover, Utah, on the Utah/Nevada border. Others would recognize Wendover as the home of the Bonneville Salt Flats, where the yearly pilgrimage known as "Speed Week" is held.

Who is going?

And, more importantly, is anyone entertaining thoughts of a co-driver? I'm specifically looking for an ESP ride. I can't drive out there this year (not in April), so I'm kinda on my own for a ride.

Oh man that's a long drive from Houston...did it last year, won the Super Challenge, but dang that's still far. And I'm broke.

That doesn't mean it's a "No".

I'm going =)...


If I thought I had the tires for two drivers, I might entertain a co-drive. But my tires are looking slim and I think the concrete WILL kill them. I'll be bringing backups, but they're old and used as well. anyone got more spare 285's?

I'll likely need my spares for the Lincoln the week after...

I never had a problem with tire wear at Wendover, the courses were never such that you could really overdrive enough to tear them up....very flowing and forgiving IMO. I think Karen did have to flip a Hoosier last year.

Yeah, we flipped the fronts, but then again, a DS WRX has no camber.

If I can get a good deal on 285/30/18 V710s before then, I'll probably be there.

I haven't which is why I want to make it there. Plus it's the second closest pro-solo to me. I haven't run a pro-solo yet, but I have good RT and am decent at launching. Also, I suppose casinos can't hurt the whole mix either!

Wendover was my first Pro, back in 2001. Steve Wynne dragged me there. I was running my 2.5RS in G-stock, when Fauth and McCormick were still running their Type Rs in GS. I think I was running Yoko A008RSII tires I got cheap off Tom Kotzian. Anyways, I was hooked on concrete, and Pros.

A year later I dragged Sean to Wendover for his first Pro too. He ran his mildly prepped STS car in DSP on some ancient ass Victoracers I had given him.

Man, that was a few years ago!

I'm going. Oh, I'm only an hour away, that's not very exciting. I hope a lot of people show, we're having a BBQ Friday night and lots of fun on the super grippy concrete. C'mon out!

Glad to hear tire wear isn't that bad. I raced there last year in a friend STU m3 and couldn't tell much tire wear other than they got FRIGGIN HOT!. Should be cool(er) this time a year though


So would running my old (OLD!) v710's with a lil under 2/32nd's be ok?

It doesn't sound like there are many good tire change places in town, but I'll likely be bring my spare (even older/harder) tires JIC.

If you aren't hard on tires, you can try it. My car in DS trim tore up tires on the edge, but being camber challenged, it would do that on asphalt too (just maybe in twice as many runs).

There's one. If, horror of horrors, you need it, they close at 5PM on Saturday, and are not open on Sunday. Ask Charlie Shelton for where it is specifically, as it's evidently hard to find if you don't know where to look.

is there still contingency in bump classes?

BTW,

anyone know where to find the info on bump classes. I remember finding it once...

I'd REALLY like to win a tire if I find some used hoosiers to put on this week.

I'm tempted to run in SM since there's only 2 of us in ESP.

Yes.

The information would be in the ProSolo rules. Bump 1 (B1) is all of the stock classes except SS, plus ST and STS. Bump 2 (B2) is everything else.

Drew,

Who's entered in SM? Are the Berry's running in BSP? Has BSP made a class - if not they typically switch to SM.

Based on your driving at Nats (finished right behind Burdette), you could probably do just fine in SM. If a top driver(s) shows up though, all bets are off.

The only people I know in SM that I'm a lil worried about are locals I race with all the time (the faucetts). I beat or come close to their times on local courses fairly often.

BSP doesn't have a full class, neither does CSP (tom kubo) or FSP (another local iain mannix). Berry's ran in the bump class last year...

I'd have to compete against them either way if they move to SM

I'm registering/teching early sat morning so maybe I'll know what class everyone's in by then?

Tom Berry/Marshall Grice wouldn't go to SM for Pros, they'd go Bump to get BSP points

Doh. Very good point Annie.

Drew, do you care about ESP pro solo points or more about contingency?
