welll....that's what I saw..... :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

because you left your barrier magnet in the on position, thinking they were fixed, and you would drive 5mm from them. :poke: :lol: :lol:

When you deactivated the system, what happened? :lol: :lol:


That is the first point.

And if you press the button twice, the barriers does jump under two wheels and start a whole new course.

Start time 10:30am, and still $30.00.

Thanks for all the ignorant comments...

Why are the barriers there exactlly? To protect you from 15-20 feet of Tarmac and 15-20 feet of grass?

The rule of thumb is you put a barrier anywhere the damage you would sustain from hitting the barrier is less than the damage you would sustain if the barrier was not there

I know that damn hard for some of you to understand... but I'm hoping that at least one person that organizes these events understands logic

I know there is a lamppost about 30 ft from the corner, but repositioning the plastic barrier to the end of the tarmac would be sufficient for this. If anyone overcooks it so much that they can't stop in the 15-20ft runoff area then they gonna hit the barrier.

By allyuh logic we should fill all the damn cone with concrete cause yuh not suposed to hit dem ent?

I does really wonder, somebody tell allyuh yuh could drive and yuh car looking nice so everybody feel they is Ayrton Senna now ent?

Many of us use Drag and wine and Dex to perfect our driving and cars... we will make mistakes, both with driving and setup, but does that mean we should destroy our cars for those mistakes? If so is better we just gone drive like tun tun on the road - mash up we car and save $120

Scratching a bumper is a far cry from destroying the car. In racing anything can happen, I've seen someone's wheel fly off, another person's tyre come off the rim and and cars slide into the fence. From the videos I've seen the barriers are to guide the driver around the corner.

Maybe it makes it easier to see than a sea of cones and maybe hitting the plastic barrier does a little more damage than a cone but something like that you should prepare for.. (mentally and otherwise)

With racing, stuff happens. With events like this you should see where you think damage may occur and reduce the risk of that happening by maybe being cautious in your first few runs until you know how to attack the corner.

I scratched the bumper, broke the supports, broke my bumper lip, headlight bracket, and damaged my fender and fender shield

But I see where you coming from... concrete cones next event will make it a hell of a lot more interesting :roll:

you don't understand the barriers aren't anchored.
If you could wrap your mind around that, might change your driving.

when you hit the barrier, you hit the weight of plastic, and friction of it resting on the surface, you then push it on. Which you prefer? move the barrier two feet, or be 15 feet in the mud and grass, and old dumped appliances?
so your tires lock up and you slide into it. What caused the lock up? the barrier? or the driver?

Destroy your car? I see civic referred to as paper, and how easily they bust apart. but seriously?

They should have cones instead. Auto nation crx was very loud at the last event, but he was still allowed to race.

i agree with the CRX comment, was very loud along with NELO R32, wayyy too loud

Other than that it was a great event, thumbs up to Autosport for a successful event. To Rawle and everyone involved in putting these events together, keep up the good work guys.

The way I see it is solodex is where you need to hone your skills... D&W is faster and of course, more chance for damage especially if you aren't completely comfortable with your car or the speed.

The cone and barrier argument is ridiculous... cones serve their purpose as do barriers and I agree with the need for barriers in this higher speed event. If you are afraid to damage your vehicle, then stick to car shows... motorsport of any form bear inherent risks, primarily to the vehicle.

Please go talk to Auto Nation CRX driver.
Please go talk to #50 driver.
Please go talk to #115 driver
We spoke to all of the above and had this noise issue addressed.

Only respect for everyone's views stopping me from commenting further on your silly little boy comments.

But this is an open forum, so press on!

I see bout eight shitty drivers hit the barriers... I on the other-hand now have skills like Michael Schumacher as I can expertly avoid hitting the barriers now
