A local TV station came out to video one of the CSCC Snowcone events!

Here's a translated version~ :)

"F1 and NASCAR are done on a smooth road surface, have you ever thought of racing on a snow surface? Let's hear from our Calgary reporter, Gerry Chow. 

Most people will think that racing is a summer sport only, but there is a group of race enthusiasm organized a winter rally cross. Doesn't matter what kind of vehicle you are driving you are welcome to join the race. All you need is a helmet, then you are ready to race.

*music, interview w/ Marc Lavigne*

Winter rally cross is organized by the Calgary Sport Car club, there are 8 races in a season and at the moment they have finished 5 of them. The race location is at the southeast of Race City's empty lot and the organizer will use pylon to create the different race track, so every race will be different. The race will be base on time attack, the racer will use the shortest time to finish the race and at the end of the season the best 6 time will be used for standing. The best racer will receive cash prize and other car part as prize. Winter rally cross and winter rally actually are quite similar, so there are racer who use winter rally cross as practice.

*music Kevin Lee music*

Winter Rally Cross will be grouped by your car's setup, as long as you are interested then you can join. 

Kyle Ho: Actually this is a really non-competitive event, you don't have to upgrade your car just use a simple normal car will do. If you come to the event, there are lots of instructor or experienced drivers will be able to teach you and help you to improve your own driving skill.
Gerry: Through this type of events, not only will the driver experience the excitment of driving on the track, they will also be able to learn about winter driving.


It is still not too late to join the Winter Rally Cross, because there are still 4 races to go until the end of this season. If you want more information, visit: http://cscc.speedracer.ca/forums/

As a group, WSC loves to troubleshoot & help out if other people are having an issue.  But don't forget to give us the details... Like what car it is. 

If you fill out your profile, we'll know who's close to you to come help in person, and it'll help us guess what car you're talking about, but it's still not as good as just outright saying what car, what year, etc.

If you had trouble logging in on Sunday Morning and got a "Banned Due to SPAM" message...  Try again!  (Unless you're actually one of the spammers trying to sell us "Clubs & Resorts" or "vi4gra" or anything else stupidly non car related).There was accidentally a ban on every account with a Hotmail address...  Seriously though, who still uses Hotmail?  

If you want to read the post about what happened, here it is: http://www.westernsubaruclub.com/smf/index.php?topic=20645.0

Unlike some people in other parts of the world (like the Southern US) we don't get to enjoy summer tires & racing year round.  So while they're racing, we're wrenching.  (Or enjoying some snow & ice filled "just for fun" racing. ;))

But there's one thing that you can do to keep yourself sharp mentally, and that's video game & sim racing!

GT5 is good, while still being "video game" rather than "sim" (and it contains more than just bugeye Subarus).

We have a full thread discussing it ever since there were release dates for it. ;)  http://www.westernsubaruclub.com/smf/index.php?topic=10700.0

So... you bought something from a vendor here (or another big vendor).  How'd it go?  Did they go above & beyond and deserve praise?  Or would you want to warn other WSC members away from using them?
