Hallett Super Tour
With the CDC saying m that gatherings of 50 or more should be canceled for the next 8 weeks, will the Hallet race be canceled or postponed to a later date?
Should we heed the advice of the CDC over club boards, internet "experts" and conspiracy theorists for the next few weeks?

I say we just go race, don't have the Saturday night gathering, and don't get too worked up about it.

the email I saw about the CVAR race at Hallett was that it was still on, with the following stipulations:
Cafe closed (bring your own food)
driver meeting will be held outdoors
no Sat night party
social distancing requested


so basically, don't talk to anyone, don't hang out. just go race. sounds like me at my first few club races. LOL

I totally disagree. Go to a track, stay away from everyone else, never congregate or fraternize, just go on the track and then come back to hide in your paddock space? No hanging out, no taking to anyone, no shooting the shit, no drinking beer and busting balls?

Eff that. I can do that on the computer for a lot less money and hassle.

And that may be exactly where this hobby is going if we keep this up.

Hey, I'm with Jesse, I can't think of a better way to get my mind off all this craziness than to get in the car on track! even being 10' away from everyone we can wave and smile and have some sense of connection. So much better than sitting at home and due to the nature of our events it does not have to be risky to participate. I hope something in my area gives it a try...

I was just going to write that, but you wrote it all haha.
The racing is only 1/2 the fun.

Seem to remember recent profound statements saying "its the people". Been racing something since I was 13 and through all the clubs and all the people in them it's still "the people". How do you rationalize that getting together at a race track could harm yourself or any the the great "people" we race with and heavily socialize with every time we go to the track. Literally all my lifetime close friends race, and it's a fairly large number. The prospect of not being able to race, socialize, love and respect all these folks a few times a year doesn't sit well with me but nobody has come up with a solution based on the present situation. Folks talking on the NASCAR satilite radio channel are taking the time now available to do all the stuff at home that they can't get done normally. For us, I'm half way through a Vintage race car build and have enough post hurricane projects around the house to last the year. I'm also planning on using up my phones and e-mail to keep in touch with all those folks who do this and we count as part of our family. That said, stay safe out there.

Different strokes etc. For some of us the racing is ALL the fun. I don't mind socializing. In fact I like that aspect of it. But nothing replaces the racing.

If the club can put on a race with certain parameters that require us to bring our own food and not get within 10 ft of each other, I say go for it. As Bill said, nothing will get your mind off of all of this crap faster than getting in a race car.
