Any drivers in need of a co-driver for Recce? My driver can't get down in time and I would love to have the chance to do Recce for safety purposes.
This will be my 14th event as a competitor. I would also be willing to sit backseat and offer my experience to a newer team doing Recce for the...
Dear friends, if anyone would like to rent us a car that we will be able to use for the recce and getting around at the rally, that would be a huge help for us trying to beat some other fast Subaru's ;)
Dates: Wed, Oct 10th to Mon, Oct 15th.
Something AWD with gravel tyres would do, ideally a...
By popular demand, the 2012 Mendocino Rally will include an optional recce Friday before the Welcome Party at Parducci Winery that night. All rallyists running the recce will receive pace notes incorporated into the route instructions at no additional cost. We are requesting Rally America...
For Thursday the organizers are considering an extra Recce Registration for Thursday morning in The Dalles at the host hotel if enough people are not planning on coming into Portland until Friday. Could I get a show of hands (e-mails?) who would need this service?
Please send a note to...
Trying to figure out travel plans etc. for OTR, so would like to know:
- Notes style i.e. Jemba Stage / pace / organizer-supplied?
- recce available?
- if so, 2-pass recce or 1-pass notes familiarization pass?
- recce schedule?
On-line registration for the Widget Recce School on 27 Feb 2010 is now available. (Thanks, Mike, for setting it up!)
See ya soon, I hope!
The 2010 edition of the Widget Recce Workshop is a "Go!" for the 27th of February in Thousand Oaks, CA, from 10 AM to 4 PM.
This workshop is designed to help everyone from newbies to experienced competitors to get the most out of recce.
This workshop is for both Drivers and...
I didn't compete or do the one-pass notes familiarization pass at Prescott this year, but I heard some anecdotal evidence that some competitors felt that the organizer-supplied notes at Prescott could have been improved e.g. some corners didn't have duration noted i.e. L4 vs. L4 short vs. L4 Lg...
We're a week away and nobody has signed up for the latest recce workshop.
Therefore I need to cancel the formal workshop so the restaurant can hopefully book the room for someone else.
However, I'm available to teach the material on a one-to-one or one-to-few basis if there's any last-minute...
Yep, it's back again, on 9 May '9!
Wanna have a fun day learning recce skills, regardless of your current skill level?
Come on out! Same details as last time, with on-line registration available soon.
Back by popular demand, I'll present another Widget Recce Workshop in Thousand Oaks, CA, on 9 May '9.
Same details as last February.
On line registration will be available soon.
Nearby airports are Burbank and LAX, which Southwest uses. (Cheap flights.)
Good roads for the practice...
As I write this, 90 votes have been cast in a recent recce poll, with reasons of Safety and Performance representing almost all the choices made, and those two split almost evenly.
I wonder: how many of these votes came from organizers? Are an organizer's motives different from a competitors...
Based on your input, and working with Mike G, I've scheduled the next Widget Recce Workshop for 14 Feb '8 in Thousand Oaks. On-line registration is available now via RallyData.com.
It runs from about 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM and includes both classroom and on-the-road instruction.
I think if you plan to do recce at Mt Hood, you need to go to the mandatory recce meeting on Friday morning and you need numbers on your recce car (and remember the one you need in the REAR window of your rallycar too....)
I am making up some 3" (white) numbers for my car windows. If you want...
After talking it over with Chuck, the final (optional) transit from our last recce exercise of the day will take you from Malibu to his birthday bash. He even offered to set up an MTC in his living room!
What a great way to end a day of pseudo-rally!
(I can see the album title already: Chuck...
Just wondering if the days for recce and all of the non-essential media/practice stuff could be swapped i.e. non-essential media/pratice stuff etc. on Thursday; recce, registration and tech on Friday?
Having the recce on Thursday means teams wanting to do recce have to take an extra day off...
Brian, Steve and I will be going up to Steamboat next week to meet with the organizers of Rally Colorado to discuss the event and the Colorado Rally Cup.
With this in mind we thought we would try to provide you all with a chance to bring up any questions, concerns, or thoughts regarding...
