    It Works!

    The testing schedule as presented has been done at Wakefield for years and doesn't seem to have many drawbacks. The most obvious benefit is having similar speed classes on the water at the same time for safety reasons. It might be a little easier to get volunteers for safety boat duty if their classes are set for another time. Less obvious, but community friendly, is that you won't have 4 cyl. mod guys out there running for hours on end. I am a 4 cyl. mod guy and even I get sick of it. I have seen more than one guy over the years who ran so much in testing that the engine was sick and worn out by elims.

      Of course there are drawbacks to any system used....I am just going by what has worked for SOA in the past. I still feel open testing is better. We have had few issues or problems with it in region ten, but I do understand your arguments. David (aka US 13)

        Testing schedule..

        The set testing schedule always works great out here (midwest). Especially when you are dealing with the number of entries at Wakefield and other places. You just have to be ready to go when it is your time. Plus you get a second chance to test later in the day... If you are going to try to get any type of actual readings it must be limited down to classes...Just thoughts from this end.

          Thank you Bill.

          I now have a much better idea of the lay of the land.

          I tried Google Earth but the resolution gets fuzzy when I zoom in. Bing Maps Birds Eye view is normally really good but it has not yet been refined in this area.

          Have you or your team set up a social network page yet? Do your part to expose and promote the sport when you’re not racing and create a presence online today.
