As of today, we have almost 100% payment of entry fees for VRAA 2016. I'm just waiting to hear a response from Alexis. I know he's out there because his IPS proxy is still underway somewhere in the world.
However, even though we are still a full paddock with 32 entrants, I have sent off messages today to invite those folks currently on the Stand-by List to confirm their Registration and join the grid -- the largest VRAA field in history.
I have added the Ship-To Address to the Registration List post and repeat it here:
Stewart Harding 106 Florida Drive Beaconsfield Quebec H9W 1L9 Canada
Please be aware that there are ongoing contract negotiations at Canada Post. If a work stoppage/strike should occur, I will notify you ASAP and I will postpone the September 1st arrival deadline by (at minimum) the number of days or weeks of the interruption in postal services.
This is a reminder that all entries should be delivered to me by September 1st. While there is no specified penalty for late arrivals, if your car is not on the starting grid for the first race it will lose any points that might have been won from that round. And if your car hasn't arrived for Tech Inspection before the VRAA big box o' cars is shipped to round 2, it will only be forwarded at your expense.
The date for Race 1 at Mesa Roja is not yet fixed, though it is unlikely to be run before September 15th. I plan to ship the cars to the next venue by October 3rd.
If your cars are not already in the VRAA Paddock or in the mail, please finish them up and send them as soon as possible.
