WCMA Technical Bulletin - 20180316
ST4 – ST5 Classing

To ease of transition from PTC (and PTD in 2019) to ST4 and ST5; the WCMA will accept all 2016 & 2017 PTC and PTD classification forms as forms for ST4 and ST5 for the 2018 and 2019 season as follows:

•   PTC classification forms will be accepted as a form for ST4 if the vehicle is unchanged since the form was originally completed.

•   PTD classification forms will be accepted as a form for ST5 if the vehicle is unchanged since the form was originally completed.  All PTD competitors are encouraged to compete in ST5 in 2018.

•   Cars running ST4 or 5 on a PT classification forms are able to/required to run tire in accordance with ST4 or 5

•   Vehicles that have been modified since the last PT classification form was completed must submit a 2018 ST classification form.

•   Many PTC competitors could be eligible for ST5 with minor modifications, such as the addition of ballast. PTC competitors wishing to compete is ST5 must compete a ST classification form.

•   Additional information regarding the background, review and finding are on the following page.

•   NASA is reducing classes by combining ST4, PTC and PTD into ST4 and ST5 over 2 seasons

•   ALL 2017 ST4, PTC and PTD competitors with completed forms were reviewed and where the form had enough info that competitor was reclassed to ST4 or ST5
•   For PTC competitor without enough info (IE no Dyno sheet) best estimated dyno curves from comparable vehicle

•   ALL 2017 ST4 and PTC competitors would be eligible to compete in ST4 in 2018, with their vehicle as it competed in 2017
•   Some (but not all) PTC competitors should be eligible to compete in ST5 with the addition of 25-220lb ballast. 
•   ALL 2017 PTD competitors would be eligible to compete in ST5 in 2018. NASA has specifically designed ST5 to include all PTD competitors

General Announcements / SASC Winter Driver Training - Feb. 11
« Last post by Reijo on February 07, 2018, 10:48:37 AM »
As most of you may know SASC offers Winter Driver Training for the general public each year and we hope to educate as many people as possible about car control in winter (actually all) conditions as a public service.

We have had people from as far away as Vancouver come to take these courses.

Currently we are hosting these events at the YYC/Budget lot near the Calgary airport (same place as the solo events in summer).  The venue has turned out to be better than expected and I figure better than Ghost Lake for a number of reasons (clean washrooms right there, less chance of slipping and falling, much closer to the city/in the city, lots of restaurants close by, and even more seat time due to proximity of the hotel, city etc).  In fact, in the end, I think TransAlta did us a favour now ...  We have had a couple of schools there already and they have worked out every bit as well as Ghost Lake .... Oh, and no snow drifts to damage your car!!!!

Anyway, the next one is this coming Sunday, Feb. 11 and there is promise of much snow and since the lot is unused except by us and other such uses, the snow stays a lot longer than regular roads and lots.   

If you know anyone interested or could use a winter driving school, please let them know ... spread the word - thanks!

Other ones scheduled are for Feb. 25 and March 4 although lack of snow can begin to be an issue as spring draws nigh!

People can sign up here:
