alright we have officially been accepted to the thunderhill race in may!
here's the stuff from the email.
Good news--I think. Your team has officially been ACCEPTED for LeMons at Thunderhill (aka Goin' for Broken) on 8-9 May 2010. Here's what you need to do now:
A: Read this email completely.
B: Forward it to the rest of your team, one of whom is certainly smarter than you are. (You agreed to be captain, so clearly you're not the genius.)
C: Finish your app data. If you left anything blank in your application, you'll now see a big red INCOMPLETE on your Home page. Fix it.
Got all that? Good--'cause there's more:
1) DOWNLOAD THE UPDATED LeMONS TECH SHEET
It's at http://www.24HoursofLeMons.com/LMTechV4.pdf
. Download this now, read the instructions, and bring the completed sheet with you to the track. (Remember, not every rule is reflected on the tech sheet: You still need to study the full LeMons Rulebook.)

Pre-Race Track Testing:Thunderhill will be holding a Friday test day for LeMons cars. They're charging $200 for one car and driver, plus $50 for each additional driver. Contact Colleen Worthington at the track (530-934-5588 x100 or firstname.lastname@example.org
) for more info or to pre-register.
OVERNIGHT CAMPING: Paddock camping is welcome. Power hookups (there are plenty, don't get your knickers twisted) are first-come, first-served.
MOTELS, DIRECTIONS, ETC: Check out the Goin' for Broken Event Page and come back often--when we learn something new, we'll update it here.
PARTICIPANT-DISCOUNT SAFETY GEAR: Thanks to event-sponsor Pyrotect, everything an individual needs to pass driver tech (full-face SA2005 helmet plus SFI-rated driving suit, undies, gloves, and shoes) can be bought in one box at a LeMons-only discount: $425 for the bundle. All the gear has been pre-approved--just put it on and go.
Pyrotect also offers discounted LeMons rates on neck braces (at least one is required per team--this isn't part of the bundle); SFI five-point belts; and stand-alone SA2005 helmets. Remember, to get the subsidized LeMons rates, you've got to order online via the LeMons-rate ordering page.
NOISE LIMIT: Maximum allowable noise level is 92dB @ 50 feet. In other words, street-legal mufflers are mandatory--no straight-pipes or hollowed-out race junk allowed. Noisy cars will be black-flagged.
RACE #s: Now that your team has been accepted, a pulldown menu of car #s is visible on the Edit Car Info page of your online registration. If the number you want isn't shown, somebody else already has it. Pick another one. Numbers should be displayed on both sides of the car plus the hood or roof.
COMP LICENSES: Every driver needs a LeMons competition membership. Memberships cost $50 and are good for one year from date of purchase. We are no longer recognizing other series' comp licenses, due to unbelievably excessive whining. Blame the BMW CCA and PCA Club member in the pit space next door. No, seriously, kick his butt. He just cost you 50 bucks.
ROSTER CHANGES: For now, it's still okay to make updates and changes to your online registration. If the changes affect your entry fees, the total will update itself automatically. About a week before the race we'll lock down the database, after which no more additions or changes are possible. We'll give you a few days' warning before that happens, but once it's gone, it's gone.
RULES: THE LeMONS RULEBOOK HAS BEEN UPDATED! Read the complete Rulebook at http://www.24HoursofLeMons.com/rules/
now and re-check it often, refreshing your browser each time. Pay special attention to the strikeout copies linked at the top of the page: It's your responsibility to know the latest version of all posted rules going into the race.
DROPOUTS: When you enter a race, you're buying the right to compete--not a guarantee from us that you'll get your own act together. If you drop out, can't finish your car, blow up, go broke, catch swine flu, step on your own wiener, or otherwise fail to avail yourself of your grid spot, you forfeit your entry fees. That's why they're called "entry" fees, not "I got to drive the whole race" fees.
3) PAY UP BY SATURDAY, MARCH 13th 2010
Speaking of entry fees, they're due now. All entry fees must be paid in full by Saturday, 13 March 2010! Miss that deadline, and your spot may be given to the next team on the waitlist. Need to beg an extension? Please drop us an email before the due date.
Your total fees are shown on your registration Home page--assuming you filled out the driver, crew, camping, license, and transponder info correctly. If there's a big red INCOMPLETE at the top of your Home page, you've screwed something up, and that might affect your fee total. So...um...fix it.
To pay online by credit card or PayPal, use the Pay Now button at the bottom of your registration Home page.
To cough up by check or money order, make payable to "24 Hours of LeMons" and mail to: 24 Hours of LeMons, 5675-C Horton Street, Emeryville CA 94608.
Welcome aboard, hope we'll be seeing you there! Cheers &c--JL
