The race will be like any other race we have with the exception of no heat race that day. We are looking at a modified start where the drivers will be in there karts parked on an angle on the front straight behind the start finish line. There co driver or pit helper will have to run across the track and start them similiar to the old Le Mans start. As far as timing the pit stop I'm leaving that up To Jeff Bacon since he is the one who wants it. Maybe he has an idea on how it will be policed.Ithink the burden will be on the individual teams to have a stop watch and control there own destiny.If anyone has any questions the drivers meeting at this weeks race is when will answer them. The race should be a no brainer other than it will be 1 hour long instead of 10 minutes.

With the timing system it should be easy to check pit stops.
Just take a kart and roll into the pits ,time the 2 minutes ,then go back on track.Look at the amb sheets to find the time.
For example a 2 minute 40 seconds lap.

After some practice refueling stops at my shop, I think we can go to a 1 minute timed stop and still be safe. Some people do not understand the concept of a timed stop, but as President I am ultimately responsible for everyone's safety, and I feel that a timed stop will promote safety. It also levels the playing field for the less experienced racer. Anyone like myself who has participated in SCCA Enduros knows that the timed stops work.

Steve, I agree this is a club but the rules are made with everyones safety in mind. I can live with the 1 minute pit stops much better. As far as rules voting would just start controversy and someone would not like something and some would like everything. The rules are posted and if they seem to not be what you like you have the option not to participate just like myself. If this becomes an annual event then we can go back and tweek the rules if necessary.
If you look at the Clone rules I wrote them and also race in the class. I did that in order to get this class started. No one else wanted the job. We have many members but few who actually step up and offer help. The few make it possible for the many to race. I also said no rule changes except for safety and have kept my word. Jeff and I colaberated on the Enduro so it isn't a one man show. I think you will agree that the clones are working and that given the chance the enduro will also. Hope you decide to race because you might just enjoy yourself.
