Ok, after a bit of a battle it`s official.

There will be no DB limit at EFE this year  

Ok, now something else...

We want to organise a decent clubstand at EFE this year.
The costs are just 10 Euro per member.
The only downside is that all tickets have to be paid in advance,so you guys and gals have to trust us on this  

If anyone is interested, let me or Jurgen (cossiemk2) know.
Closing date is 31th this month, so there is some time to think about it.

Greetings, Olaf

I don`t know, no one has signed up for the event just yet.
I could send out a mass pm to all eu members to announce it, but i find that kinda of aggressive..

I think we must wait a bit and see who wants to join us

sorry to say it, it will not be me.

like i said in my efe topic, witch i cant find anymore for some reason. one off the main reasons is the 0-100-0 runs and no decent head up's sprints.

what i heard about the sound limit, this year they will not measure the db levels, but they will next year.

That`s too bad.

I really wanted to see your mk1 Capri in action  
However, it`s your car and you decide if and when it`s going to the track.

Well, i am going ,and so will Jurgen,hope his mk2 escort has been setup on the rollers by then.
Should be good for a few quick times in the sprint

@ least it will be good for a few clips on YouTube again

I won't be attending this year, there will be a small contingent going over this year from the XROC but I don't think any of them are the normal brit crowd doing the sprints. I'd like to return another year but not sure when this will be, done the show for 9 years on the trot until 2008 and have always enjoyed it.

Will be in Ireland this year and fitting my new kitchen which will be taking most of my funds

Hope all who go enjoy themselves and the venue is all it cracks up to be.

my car is not build/setup for 0-100-0 runs, but for drag racing and sprints.

i wunder how they gone measure the 0-100-0 times and how do they know if you drive exactly 100 before you hit the brakes ? that takes some serieus timing equipment.

I thought it was only 0-100?

And not back to 0.

Must have read it wrong at the XR/RS site.

its on the bottom off the page

http://www.europeanfordevent.nl/sprint]http://www.europeanfordevent.nl/sprint

its says:

Wetenswaardigheden  over de sprint/ to know about the sprint:
Afgelegde afstand in 0-100 km/u en weer terug. coverd distance in 0-100 km/h and back

Bijvoorbeeld/ example: Focus RS2 does it in 0-100 in 5,7 seconden.

De feitelijke uitvoering zal een afstand wat groter zijn dan de vergelijking suggereert.

In het voorbeeld zou de auto een afstand afleggen van ongeveer 130m

Optrekken 0-100 km/u

Seconden      Meters

5,7              130,00
9,0              205,26

Dus trekt jou auto op in 9 seconden op van 0-100 km/u dan leg je globaal een afstand van 200 meter af.

Remweg bij 100 -- 0 km/u

34 mtr                   door Focus RS2
76 mtr                   minimale rem afstand incl. veiligheids marge, volgens de gegevens van 3VO


why would you start about brakes in a head up race (like they always had on efe)? maybe because they dont have enough space, looking at the picture in the following page: http://www.europeanfordevent.nl/19/07/2010/efe-nieuws/indeling-efe-bekend]http://www.europeanfordevent.nl/19/07/2010...ling-efe-bekend

this 0-100-0 sprints is also not mentioned on the englisch or german page. that could be a big disapointment for some people.

OK I see the point in not having the head to head sprints.

But why a 0-100-0.

Why not just 0-100, says on the flyer a 150m sprint?????

Are they afraid to run out of tarmac?

That's probably it.

That's probably it.

looking at the picture off the field, its not very big. the road they doing the 0-100-0 on is 6 meters wide. so there is no space for a head's up race with 2 cars. so its single cars only than.

with 0-100 or 150 meter sprints they need more room.

one off the big attractions on efe was the head's up race with 2 cars. thats what alote off people wants to see and do them selfs. thats why they dont say 0-100-0, affraid alote off people dont show up.

i still wunder how they gone measure the 0-100-0 run? and hows the driver know that he/she is driving exactly 100, before hitting the brakes? most tacho's are not precise.

could it not be that 0-100-0 is more of a challenge for competitors and a more interesting spectacle for the crowds?

i do 0-100-0 every day in traffic  

ask your self, as a member off the crowd. whats more spectacle seeing a 0-100-0 run or a heads up sprint between 2 cars?

ask your self, as a driver. whats more spectacle to do, a 0-100-0 run or a heads up sprint between you and someone else?

the point is, they advertice with: The Ford XR/RS club traditionally run sprint & slalom events down the track all day.
in dutch: Wie wil zijn snelle opgevoerde Ford niet eens testen in een sprint om te kijken welke tijd jij en je concurenten neerzetten? Wij dagen alle stoplicht racers uit om bij deze mee te doen!

who doesn't want to test his fast ford to see what time you and your competitors are able to? we challenge all street race to join!

even the flyer does not mention 0-100-0 runs but sprints.

but there are no traditionally sprints (head up's sprints with 2 cars, side by side) this year according there sprint side, but 0-100-0 runs and thats something completly different. and in my eyes (and i can be wrong) this is misleading advertising.

That`s why i need to know how much cars are going to attend

I'm struggling a bit with mine (any offers of practical help would be warmly received  ) so the chances of getting it built and mapped in time are slim to none   would have been nice

Sure you can come over, just as long as there are 5 or more cars, then i can book the stand for all of us
Just wait till we know who is coming over and how much cars we are going to have.
