SOAR 2017 – Round Five – September 8-9-10, 2017 – Reverse Technical

Well this is a first – writing the reminder and schedule for the next round on the first day home from last round.

I would like to apologize for the schedule. In the fall I am given a list of potential dates from the track. With these dates, we work out the best season we can while considering the separation of rounds, avoiding other series traditional dates, potential weather, long weekends, etc. This year we had to choose between two “close” dates. It was either round 4/5 or round 5/6. We chose August and September simply as it’s the best chance for better weather. Now after last rounds single-digit nighttime temperatures, we may have to rethink that for next season!

2017 has been a great season so far, and we have so many close battles across our many different classes. The rider turnout has been amazing and the weather has co-operated……for the most part.  I can’t wait to watch the final two rounds.

Round five will bring a special treat, and potentially a new class for 2018!  We will be hosting a points paying round for “The Legends Race Series”. It is my understanding the series is split into an east and west division. These divisions only visit each other twice a year. This year the eastern cars will be racing the Grand Bend Raceway (oval track) on Saturday. On Sunday they will be adding a round, and doing their only road race of the season with SOAR. If this goes as planned, we may see a few rounds next season. I believe the Legends cars will be a good fit as they do use motorcycle engines (FJ1200).  I know our racers will welcome these new drivers in the normal awesome SOAR manner. It should be great fun for all of us!

Pre-registration closes at 8pm Tuesday September 5th. Please note this is a hard deadline! ANY emails received from 8:01pm onward are not opened. All invoices must be cleared by 8:00pm on Wednesday, September 6th.  Any outstanding invoices beyond that time will be cancelled and entry fees revert to at-track rates. 

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

SOAR 2017 – Round Four – August 25-26-27, 2017 – Modified Track

SOAR is halfway through our 2017 season!

August is the only round using the Modified course, allowing the smaller bikes to shine.  Points are tight in many classes and this means that Round #4 is crucial to many riders – it could be a make or break race for many championships. August in Grand Bend generally has great weather which makes for great racing!

Pre-registration closes at 8pm Tuesday August 22nd. Please note this is a hard deadline! ANY emails received from 8:01pm onward are not opened. All invoices must be cleared by 8:00pm on Wednesday, August 23rd. Any outstanding invoices beyond that time will be cancelled and entry fees revert to at-track rates. 

Looknig forward to seeing you all there!

6/18/2017

Finally, summer is upon us. Weather is warming making for ideal racing conditions.

Round Two for the 2017 season is upon us and I look forward to seeing everyone at Grand Bend Motorplex for our only visit to the long track configuration – a rider favourite for certain. Round Two schedule and information is now posted.

Round #1 saw large grids and excellent racing. There were some great battles and our new crop of Pro riders showing well in their inaugural pro races. Congrats to all and we are looking forward to more of the same action for Round #2.

Just a few reminders. Cut-off for pre-registration is Tuesday June 20th at 8:00pm. Please note that the registration email is shut down at 8:01pm on the same day. Any registration/communications received after that time will not be viewed, nor answered.

Any invoices outstanding beyond Wed June 21st at 8:00pm will be cancelled and associated pre-entry will revert to at-track registration and pricing. Sorry for the hardline but we have been pushing beyond the deadline, causing delays and extra work for registration. The purpose for pre-registration is three-fold. First it allows for 90% of the paperwork to be done before the event greatly reducing workload and lineups at the track. Second its offers a commitment to the event. Third it allows for a revenue stream before the event to pay associated costing. Because of these benefits and to extend our gratitude, we offer a 25% discount to you – saving you money. But if forms/invoices are late, it defeats the purpose and instead causes a greater workload. There is no reason that we can not accept forms days or even weeks before the cut-off, so please take advantage of this and get your registrations in early.

While we are talking about pre-registration, it reminds me that anyone wanting to take the school this also MUST be done before the event. We must have the appropriate number of instructors scheduled therefore its imperative to have an accurate count of participants.

Looking forward to spending another great weekend with The SOAR Family.
