I've metioned this in passing before, but the Skyline club will be hosting another DECA day on the 19th of November. The last one I went to was a blast, and I will definately be at this one. If you're not sure what DECA is about, or what was the Skyline one like, then look in the following link as that still should have most of the clips up:

DECA - Skyline vs WRX club 26/6/2005

The Skyline DECA day is competition day, so you get into cone-dodging courses straight away and all the runs are timed. They also use the back track, and also have a fair few head-to-head cometitions in the afternoon. Also, as you can see from the clips, the Skyline cone-dodging tracks are a lot more open and you get to pick up a lot more speed then normal ... in few instances you even need the 3rd gear.

Because of the nature of the event, CAMS license and car-club memberships will be required, as well as an extinguisher and a helmet (which does not need to be worn on the skid-pan). Entry forms are not available yet, but when they will be, they weill go quick as there will be only 50 spots. There's already a lot of interest ... looks like most of the people who were there last time will be there again. Price will be around $60.

So anyone here insterested? If so, then I'll keep you guys posted and let you know when the entry form is available.

Does not look like there's any interest here, but just in case here's the entry form:

DECA 19/11/2005 - Entry form

60 places available and 40 if them are already gone, so if you're contemplaiting it, then you better contemplate quickly.

OK, here's a quick report. Weather worked out well and there was a lot of cars there. There was close to 60 cars this time, which is 10 - 15 cars too may IMHO. Everyone still got at least 2 goes at every Motorkahana layout, and at least 3 attempts at the track ones. Can't complain about the amount of goes you got on the track, but would have loved to one more run at each skid-pan motorkahana.

Out of the 60 or so cars I came 4th outright (again) and got beaten by the same 2 GTRs as last time. Also a track-speced STi (all on R-spec tyres) finished ahead of (ie. 3rd). I had no chance of getting the 2 GTRs, but the STi was only 1sec ahead of my after all the 'excercises' ... so I could have taken him if I drove better, but that was not the case on the day so props to them all. Also I won the 2WD category outright.

Though, that's enough of report ... here are the clips. Thanks to Iggy for hosting all these again:

you need to get you some cheater tyres to keep up with those nasty skylines.

I do have a set, and do bring them to the track. Though, I can't be bothered putting them on just to ddge some cones.
