Note that some of the events for these dates are tentative, and may be re-ordered to accommodate the availability of the SoloPro team. Details for the Tournament Challenge 32, and Team Challenge Weekend will soon be released in the forums. Cash is king! There’s nothing like a cash prize to motivate good competition!
Competitors and other event attendees, should note that in an effort to further develop the SASC’s relationship with the surrounding community, certain event guidelines will be strictly upheld for 2016. As motorsports enthusiasts, it is the goal of the club to not only host motorsports events, but to demonstrate that motorsports activities can be conducted in a responsible, sustainable manner that benefits the surrounding community, and participants everyday driving skills and behavior. With this in mind, participants and attendees are reminded to be respectful of others both on and off the event site.
In an effort to minimize our impact, in 2016 the club will strictly enforce a 93db sound limit at all Ft. Macleod events. All participants will be given an opportunity to evaluate their vehicles sound level the weekend of April 23rd. After this first event weekend, any vehicle in excess of the sound limit will be banned from participation until appropriate modifications are made.
Questions regarding this regulation, or other details of the events can be discussed in the forums. We are less than one month away from getting at it!
