Arrow Ice racing - it's on

Anyone up for some racing? AMEC ( www.icerace.com ) racing started last weekend, it was an excellent event. Plenty of fun street cars, lots of room and lots of seat time. Next race is this Sunday west of Albany. It's a hike for those of us in eastern NE but it is well worth the effort.

Is that wheel to wheel racing?

Yes, but we're very polite and typically come home with cars in the same shape as when we got there (it is a no contact class). Only requirements are: real snow tires, Snell rated helmet and a fire extinguisher mounted to a metal bracket (I bought mine at Home Depot).

Wow! That looks like mad fun. I'd like to try that with someone else's car first.

Too much risk for me to consider. No contact class doesnt mean contact wont happen. n00bs and wheel to wheel racing dont mix.

This is true, more encouragement to get in the lead I guess.

Yep, things can happen, but they rarely do. There was a first timer out there in a BRZ, he had a great time even if his car is a pretty bad choice for ice. I'd say the rsk is slightly higher than a HPDE day, the reward far greater.

Not sure what you're trying to imply but I doubt your insurance would cover any incidents while ice racing.

Mind you, I do track days with my car so I understand risks without insurance.

Racing is on for tomorrow, Caroga Lake, NY. They got much less snow but there will be some snow banks this week.

I was implying that if anything were to happen, you would just make up some silly excuse and get the car covered by your insurance company, which from your posts on facebook, you seem to do often. I think the most recent was a few months ago you had said a lady backed up into your parked car, while she was backing out of a parking spot. You posted a picture of the whole front end off your car (the front end that includes bumper beam, bumper, grill, headlights, hood, fenders, etc.), seemed a bit excessive damage for a slow collision.. i've had a car back up into my impreza wagon in the past and not even a scratch, even though the car moved quite a bit. Yours seemed like a questionable claim.

If I can get my hands on a set of winter tires, i hope to be at the next event!

The hit was from a square trailer hitch directly onto a compromised bumper beam. The bumper beam crumbled like it was made of crackers.

I never said it was a lady. The only thing I know about the car that hit me was it was an SUV with a trailer hitch.

I also find it hilarious that you find the need to creep my facebook.

Lol don't flatter yourself, I'm not creeping on your facebook. Someone at the S.RI meet saw that on their news feed, laughed, and showed it to us. Iirc, I unfriended you; therefore, I wouldn't see your posts.

RACING IS ON for this Sunday! Not many weekends left, last weekend we had an S8 and Z4 out there, plenty of nice cars having fun.

This is from two weeks ago, first few laps of the final race.

^ Awesome! I see why they say, no light colored cars. When all the snow is getting spat in your face you can hardly see anything.

Last race of the season will be this Sunday assuming the weather cooperates, come on out! The warmer temps make for softer ice so even more grip.

Boston BMWCCA is trying to get an event together in NH this weekend or next, though their membership rules are a bit more complicated this year.
