    Cars. Fast cars. Maybe a slow one thrown in there for fun.
  1. Once in, you are in.
  2. Time just flies. It seems 2016 is barely behind us and once again it's time to kick off another season at Road Atlanta. Hope you managed to get some work done on your car over the holidays! As usual, I have prepared a few notes on when to arrive and what to expect when you get here. Gates - The action begins at 5pm Thursday night. That's when you can get in. If you arrive early, Road Atlanta will stage you out front in the order you arrived. Relax, have some coffee and chat.Tech - The busiest tech weekend of the year kicks off at 6pm on Thursday. We will tech cars until 10pm and then we're going to bed. Tech will resume Friday at 9am and run until 6pm. Make sure you have your tech sheet printed and filled out. Incomplete tech sheets may result in your team being placed in EC. Some items have changed vs the 2016 rulebook, make sure you read through the 2017 book.Registration - We have a full house again. To expedite the registration process, make sure you go over your entry before you get in line. Make any driver changes and pay any balances while on that long drive to Atlanta. If your drivers are correct and you are fully paid when you get in line, registration takes less than 3 minutes!Open Practice - Practice is free this year, included with your entry fee. There will be a practice meeting Friday morning and 4 sessions during the day. Take advantage of this time to familiarize your drivers with the course. Hotel - In case you still haven't thought about where you are sleeping, the official hotel is the Country Inn & Suites in Braselton. Ask for the ChumpCar rate. Pit Assignments - All you really want to know, right? Click here. A reminder: read through and print out the Supplemental Rules for this event here.If you have any questions about registration, please contact Katherine Miller here. Any other questions you can contact me here. We're looking forward to seeing you in Georgia! All the best -The Eastern ChumpStaff
  3. Yes to showers, and we have 36 garages for rent at $200 each for the weekend
  4. ChumpCar reserves the right to change the track configuration to ensure your safety. or something like that. I just chose the non-NASCAR setup. so it may be wrong.
  5. I just messaged Sandi. someone will answer soon

  8. Good article http://www.digitaleng.news/de/engineering-the-software-user-experience/
  9. oh yes, I forgot about the veterans discount... I almost got that until a faculty member gave me a copy.
  10. Paulie and I have been hard at work getting ready for the 2017 Road Atlanta race. We are trying to make the whole live video experience easier to follow, and easier to find. Let's start out with the website. https://www.chumpcar.com/live.php You can easily get to the site by typing in chumpcar.com/live So we have the video mix that will be sent to this page. Paul and I are going to be doing the play by play live on this channel. This page is still being developed. I have added a few pop-up windows that show the race entries, and the race supps. On mobile these take up a whole screen. On desktops they work fine in smaller scrollable windows. I would like you to test them out on your normal devices at home please. Let me know if stuff is displaying weird, or do not work properly. I develop on a Mac, so sometimes my code does weird stuff on older browsers. Some of the changes the developers at RaceCast.me will be adding to our feed will be the ability to change the feed resolution. Right now it is being broadcast only at 720. I want the ability to reduce this down to 480 and 240 so that people in limited bandwidth areas will get less buffering, and will help with our bandwidth at the track too. We want a good experience for everyone. I do want to ask everyone at the track to only use the resolution that allows you to get the info you need. We have a lot of feeds that use the same cell towers as you are using. Please, if you are going to try out live feeds and use RaceCast.me, please make certain to join the Road Atlanta race. If there are features that you see missing, or something you want added, please let me know. And stay tuned, Paulie and I will be doing a pre-race show this week. more later
  11. you mean like this? https://www.chumpcar.com/live.php still developing... so you may see things that are not working...
  12. I work for a University, so I get the latest Solid Works and AutoDesk software for free. I prefer SolidWorks because it is so easy to use. Siemens Solid Edge PLM 2D is free and is really good too. But all of those are for PCs. Now I am a mac house and do use AutoCad for MAC. The new version which I think is still 2014, is actually pretty good. Not as easy as solid works, but I think it is better in some ways. CAD and affordable really don't go together.
  13. yes. yes i did. and there are reasons why. Let's just state the open rate is huge!
  14. Yes. you can feed the test day. We will be mixing live and pre-recorded video during the Road Atlanta test session. Remember, there is about a 40 second delay between what the camera sees and what you will monitor on the PC or phone.
