Event Cancellation Notice

Due to safety concerns from the heavy snowfall, the decision has been made to cancel the event tomorrow (February 5th). We are tentatively rescheduling for February 19th. Currently registered drivers will be registered to the new February 19th date automatically. If a credit is preferred, please contact a club organizer through MSR.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused, and we hope to see you all out for the next event.

Another Snowfall Warning

As you may have heard 2 days ago, BC is expecting a lot of snow before Tuesday. Up until yesterday evening, the weather forecast showed only rain leading up to the event, with temperatures not dipping below zero, and only 1-5 cm of snow forecasted for Saturday. However, this morning the forecast has changed and it looks like we’ll be getting much more than that. Keep an eye on the weather forecast to ensure you’re prepared for whatever ends up happening.
Here are some updates/ information about this weekend’s event that will hopefully answer some questions you may have:
– The event will be run as a regular Slush Series event. It will not be exhibition.
– We are not requiring winter/ snow tires to race, however we recommend at least all seasons.
– We will be setting up a fun (and safe) course on Saturday, and Ryan will post an update afterwards.
– If you are looking for a car to drive, Ryan has been incredibly generous and has offered to let people drive his miata. Please let Ryan know if you want to drive Dory.

For those helping out with setup, we will be starting at around 1:30pm on Saturday.

Remember to dress warm, and see you all on Sunday!

Snowfall Warning for Slush 4

Hi everyone,

Over the past few days there has been significant snowfall forecasted for the Friday and Saturday leading up to our next Slush event, Sunday January 15th. While the forecast has changed today and now show snow on the Wednesday and Thursday instead, there is still a possibility that snow/ ice may still be accumulated on the pad for the event.

The safety of all participants is of the utmost importance to us. With the unpredictable weather conditions, it is not possible to determine whether or not the pad will be safe for autocross on all tires prior to the event. As a result, we will be making the judgment call the morning of the event (Sunday morning) on whether or not winter tires will be required. We will be running the event regardless, but with a few guidelines depending on the conditions. The options are listed below:

1. If the pad is clear and deemed safe (by the execs, morning of the event), you may run any tires you bring.

2. If the pad has a significant amount of ice/ snow and is deemed unsafe (by the execs, morning of the event), you must run snow/ winter tires. Studded tires are not allowed. In this situation, a vehicle may be co-driven in more than one heat. If you do not have snow/ winter tires, you will not be allowed to run and credit will not be issued.

3. If you wish to sit this event out, you will receive full credit back, which you can apply to a future event, if you cancel on MotorsportReg before the end of next Wednesday, January 11th.

We will be sending out an e-mail to participants on Saturday January 14th in the afternoon after course setup announcing whether the event will be an exhibition event or if it will count for Slush points. If the conditions are poor, we don’t want drivers pushing their cars to the limit to gain Slush points and risk the safety of the driver and other participants. If the event is run as an exhibition event, we will have an additional event added to the Slush Series, which is tentatively scheduled for Sunday March 19th.

Please don’t hesitate to contact myself or any of the other execs if you have any questions or concerns.
