On the Internet, they say that content is king. The same holds true for the Link newsletter. It is supposed to reflect the interests and ideas of the Motorsport Club of Ottawa. We, in MCO, have such a huge variety of outlets available to members interested in racing including road racing, ovals, karting, rally, marshals and crew. The Link provides a voice for those experiences. But to do so, it must get content from the members. Please, take the time out from working on the car, and let your friends and acquaintances know about your efforts. The recent issues have been shorter than in previous months. In the last year (this is the first issue of my second year as editor), I have not refused any submissions. The Link is shorter now because I am receiving fewer submissions. Less content = less pages.

On behalf of the Ottawa Citroen Club, I would like to thank the Motorsport Club of Ottawa for your support of our recent Rendezvous 2001 event, held August 10-12, in Winchester. During the course of the weekend, we welcomed over 75 people, and around 20 Citroen automobiles, including DS, Sport Maserati, 2CV, and even a 1953 Traction Avant. Participants came from Montreal, Toronto, Belleville, Quebec City, Boston, and of course Ottawa. Your gracious loan of a set traffic cones helped us to organize the First Annual Citroen Olympic games on Sunday morning. The cones were used in the spectacular culmination of the games, a slalom in which the blindfolded drivers were assisted by sighted navigators. Such games are a regular part of Citroen gatherings in Europe, but we believe this was a first for a North American meeting. Our competitors, who ranged in age from 22 to 79, were unanimous that the games were an excellent addition to our schedule. Special thanks to Dave Jones, for his help in getting access to the cones, and to Pat Weightman for his help in returning them. All for now, Bob McLeod Rendezvous Co-organizer Ottawa Citroen Club

Main Street Racing Press Release

ProTruck#2 - Rebuilt and Racing Again

Races. CASCAR had more Ottawa drivers, with Carp's Steve Munro and Ottawa's Al Long battling it out for first with Al Long getting the win. Sounds like the Mini-Stocks at Capital City, with Dave Watchorn and Martin Walter. They seem to have running first and second down to a fine art. This past Wednesday saw Dave win. These guys are a treat to watch. The MiniStocks have great cars this year and one of the most popular series for drivers and fans alike. And, talking about popular drivers, the ProStock driver Earl Wylie, his engine blew up big time. Well, last we heard form Earl, he was already planning where to get the next motor and how to be ready for Wednesday Night Racing. Last Wednesday at Capital City Speedway definitely was a Fan Event for Action, but a bit hard on the pocket books of the Drivers. This week, August 15th, is regular racing with the ProTruck, Minilegends, Mini-stocks, Hobbystock and Four for Fun, for those that want a less expensive taste of racing. The next week, August 22nd, Race Vehicles be out and shining for Fan Appreciation Day at Capital City Speedway. Special thanks to the Crew at Main Street Racing for all the excellent work to get the ProTruck out there for the Races. Colin, Pam and Chris Lewis spent more time in the

DATE: Sunday, August 20th, 2001 The ProTruck #2's was off and racing after an intense effort by the Main Street Racing Team after last race's contact with the Wall. The extra care showed as the ProTruck driven by Kenny Baird worked its way from 7th to nosing into 1st in the first half of the feature. While Ken was working on getting into first, Tim Kirby's #10 bumped and spun Ken's truck, sending Ken to the back of the pack for causing a caution. Ken worked his way back through the pack to seventh again. And this time, close contact in Corner One loosened some of the new body panels enough that Ken had to go to the pits for repairs. Ah, well, that's racing. Tim Kirby won the race, followed by Gilles Seguin and Dave Riopelle, after Danny Yeas had led for most of the race, losing his position in the very last lap. Everything was back in order for Saturday's Autodrome St. Eustache in Montreal Cummins Racing Event with ProTrucks and CASCAR.

How to Identify Rally Fever

by Jean MacGillivray
Interest in rallying at MCO continues to grow by yumps and bounds, and I know of several homes where there's no shortage of rally talk. I thought it might help to identify some of the more significant signs that your rallymeister is in the throes of rally fever. You know rally fever is high when... you take HIS car on vacation because it has the rally computer and you have to do an odo check for an upcoming rally you ALWAYS have to eject a rally tape from the VCR before inserting your own you have one calendar dedicated only to rally events he convinces you to sell your BMW and get a Subaru Impreza he considers the proper way through corners to be sideways he refers to old snow tires as "gravel tires" he considers a bash plate to be an appropriate upgrade he speaks with reverence of "big lights" he searches out back roads to test the yumps. He insists that you come along to share the fun. he always takes the long way home from work...on gravel roads you're waiting for him to say he needs a roll cage and a five-point harness he's gone for 12 hours at a time checking out new rally routes he spends hours at the computer working out checkpoints, times, etc. he realizes the weekend's over and he hasn't spent any of it with you he finally convinces you to rally with him and he wants you to drive you agree to drive 3 hours each way to attend an event hosted by another club he tells you about all the interesting new people he's met...they all rally he considers a lifestyle that doesn't include rallying to be unendurable

Mosport Marshalling
by Richard Muise
This is why everyone interested in motor racing should become a marshal. I was on yellow flags for the American LeMans Series (Sunday August 19), and it was streaming down rain. Behind me was a row of photographers with gigantic zoom lenses, and far to my left was the live TV feed to NBC. But that didn't matter. Before me lay corner-5, a majestic sweeping dive down from corner-4 to a hairpin with a massive elevation change that is never adequately visualized from pictures. The pace car had already been by twice, leading the field to the green. Even the marshal's with years, decades of experience would not guess at what the first lap would bring when we talked over lunch. At the front of the pack were the "big boys", the LeMans prototypes, LMP900's. The first row was the factory Audi team R8s, followed by one of the beautiful red Panoz front-engined prototypes and a private Audi R8. The pack was scattered irregularly behind, with many fast cars starting at the back of the field due to mechanical issues during qualifying. Something had to happen and quickly, as the racing order sorted itself out. In the streaming rain.

right that is the slowest part of the course. And before my very eyes, it happened. The Big One. Drivers not willing to concede space on the rain drenched corner that narrowed too quickly. With the first Panoz LMP900 behind it (up from third), the lead Audi #1 tried to brake late to protect the position. There was no way it could make the corner when it lost traction under braking. It spun 270 degrees and came directly towards us sideways with unchecked velocity. All three flaggers ran away from its trajectory. Behind me, I could sense the same movement from the row of sports photographers, scattering in all directions backward. The third Audi, the privateer #38 also lost control trying to avoid the first spin and spun into the gravel trap to the left. The Panoz, which now inherited the lead also had problems with braking and ran wide, putting 2 wheels off the track but continued.

so we had a number of trucks to get the cars out of the corner, clean up the mess, and attend to the drivers if they were injured. It took between 7 to 10 minutes to get all the mess cleared, the safety vehicles off the track and the marshals back in position. The entire time, I was still waving one yellow flag and holding the second yellow out steady; my arms were so tired. The racing resumed and we had some time to relax. But a few laps later, Porsche 911 GT3-RS #30 lost it coming into our corner. The driver almost caught the slide, but only managed to delay the trip out to the tire barrier. He hit hard, ending his race with body parts all over the dirt leading up to the tires. Again, another 5+ minutes of full course yellow, with a waved yellow in our corner. That was the story of much of our day in corner-5. We had a few more spins in the ALMS race, but all continued without contact with our well-used wall. The day had started in the same manner, lots of rain, lots of clean up.

But that's not to say that the weekend was about incidents. As marshal, you get to watch racing from the second best location (after the drivers themselves). And there was lots of great racing. Aside from ALMS, Because of the expectation that this there were also races for open wheel sorting process may not be peaceful, (Star Mazda, ChampCar Lite, and all the flaggers were moved back "Mixed Results" Formula 1600's), Panoz GT Pro, from their normal positions near the photo from Panoz Motorsports (C) 2001 Canada Cup. I worked at corner 8 wall and tire barriers. Our corner captain gave us the signal that the green I remember taking the yellow flag with during Saturday qualifying (it's at the end flag was out, and at the same time, the me, and as the first Audi hit the wall, I of the back 'straight'), and corner-2 during roar of the cars on full throttle down the flinched, turned around and started to Friday practice.

It had nowhere to go, and not through the first corner without incident, enough traction to either make the corner I got to work with some great people. and gave information on the next corner or stop. It came like a train to the wall Marshaling is a great deal of fun, mixed before the sound of the fast approaching hitting hard ten feet in front of me at an with some periods of hard work (running pack drowned out the PA. A few more oblique angle, just missing the first Audi with fire extinguishers should be an event in the next Olympics). Saturday evening, quick glances at the captain, trying to read that was now trying to leave the gravel. all the marshals even got their own the status, but I received no indications before the leaders appeared at the top of The drivers didn't seem to accept that their autograph session and some kind words cars were broken, and all three cars from Ron Fellows (Corvette Racing #3), the far hill, corner-4. immediately tried to leave, but could not. who was forced to show us his Rolex (the They were approaching me head-on at (None of the drivers were hurt).

Main Street Racing Press Release

Good, Smooth Racing for Ken Baird and the CARQUEST ProTruck #2 Capital City Speedways Feature Race. DATE: Sunday, August 20th, 2001 Wednesday Night's Feature Race with the ProTrucks at Capital City Speedway was good, clean racing in front of a packed Grandstand. There were only two cautions, one in the first half and one in the second, and racing finished within the specified time limits. Noise concerns are being met by the track limiting the time on each race to approximately one minute per lap. This means the 30 Lap feature has to be completed within the 30 minutes allotted. Cautions could potentially use up a lot of race time so all were glad the cautions were slight. Ken came in Fourth in his heat race, right behind one of our other North Gower Drivers, Steve Yendall. Stephen Benoit won the Heat. The Feature win went to Carp's Steve Munro with Ken, working his way up from a ninth place start, finishing in Fifth position out of a field of seventeen. Steve Yendall was Seventh and Matt Moffitt, our other North Gower ProTruck driver, was Eleventh - not a usual finishing position for this successful young driver. All the North Gower ProTrucks finished with little to do to make them ready for the Wednesday Night's Racing except the perennial setup work to

continuously improve performance. North Gower's CASCAR Driver, Lyle Perkins, did well at the Raindate Race on Sunday, August 19th. He finished well and had good racing and little to fix as well. Ron Beauchamp from Ormstown Quebec won the CASCAR Feature. Dave Watchorn and Martin Walter of North Gower took one win each for the heats, and Martin got First and Dave Second in the Feature. I wonder what these two neighbours talk about during the week - trade set up notes and then may the best driver win? Lots of fun to watch anyway you look at it. Was nice to see Chris Dunham make them work for their wins. He was third and second respectively in the heats, making the North Gower boys work just a little bit harder. Earl Wylie had a rather spectacular crash on Wednesday night driving his old hobbystock, while he waits for an engine for his Pro Stock. His throttle stuck on and he went right over the wall between corner One and Two. When the car stopped it looked like he had neatly parked it beside the fence. Earl was ok and his hobbystock is fixed and ready to race again Wednesday. This Wednesday, the 22nd of August, is Fan Appreciation Night at Capital City Speedway, so bring your cameras and autograph book as your favourite drivers will be parking on the track for the audience to come and see close up

the Cars and ProTrucks with an opportunity to speak with the drivers and find out a bit more about motorsports in Ottawa.
