SMCC Montreal Economy Run - June 9th, 2012
 
http://www.smccrally.com/events/Econ...Banner2010.jpg

The Club Smart guys have already pinged me about the event, so we've posted it nice and early to give everyone time to fit it into their calendars:

Click here for the teaser video

The rally-style Economy Run will be held on the Saturday of F1 weekend. This should give out-of-towners a good excuse to come up to Montreal. We had a great time two years ago when it also coincided with F1 weekend. If you're happy with couch/thermarest accommodations, we can surely hook you up, and take you out for some of the F1 fun.

But the big question is, what will Mike Kamm have to show up in to defend his title and beat the 3.89L/100km record he set last year???

EDIT 10 07 12: Added the results so you don't have to go digging for them further in this thread

You can drive at any speed, but you will have to complete the sections within the given time in order not to be penalized. The "fastest" section corresponds to driving about 85% of the speed limit.

In other words, you have challenging real-time decisions to make about fuel-economy vs. punctuality. This makes the event a good real world test. ;)

is it calculated like exemple there is 40km between A and B and the speed limit is 70kph you have to drive a least 60 kph to make it in time (60 is 85% of 70) and and if there are stops and lights you have to go faster besause slowing down for a stop drop your minimum average seppd of 60

or its calculated like someone just make the run and he was driving x% of the speed limit and his run is the target time

Yes, it's calculated like a TSD rally where there are only elapsed time sections. If you drive at the speed limit, you have sufficient time to complete the section including stop signs, traffic lights, etc.

The navigator will know how much time you have left to complete each section, and you can adjust your speed/hypermiling to ensure that you make it to the end of section just in time. OR, in some cases, it may be advantageous to take a small time penalty to save fuel... ;)

The instructions look like this (max 11 minutes to complete this section):

PSSSsssst! Mike!

Let's combine forces! 1st generation Honda Insight + you as co-pilot. :D

CigaR007 03-26-2012 02:06 PM

I might join again this year. I might have to undertake my ecomods if I want to beat echo-francis ! :p

Battle of the ECHOs or EGOs ? :D

tercelguy 03-26-2012 05:38 PM

I'm gonna be back with my Tercel again this year, ECHO-modders beware;)

My friend will also probably come with his 2004 Echo hatch

The event sounds like a lot of fun, but I'll probably be travelling around that time...

Plus, my Protege's FE would be quite laughable :p

Sounds interesting Darin, but I doubt that I would be any good as a navigator.

Jeff, I'm excited to see your announcement of this fun and challenging event! And your gracious hospitality is always much appreciated. Please count me in for an overnight again this year.

I bought a clapped out '97 Geo Metro and was thinking I would like to enter it this year to see if I could make it three wins in three years, with three different cars.

But I haven't gotten the Metro on the lift yet to see if it is worth repairing the rust or not.
