New AFM Rider Rep

Hi,

I am one of the new rider reps for the remainder of the year (filling in Michael Aron's position through december)

I will be on duty at the race July 10-11.

I have posted my contact info in the board communications section of the AFM Forums. If you are a racer/member and can't get to it, please PM me and I will get it to you.

I look forward to working with you the rest of the year.

Thanks for filling in Eric. I know Michael has been really busy with his business.
Can we announce it during the riders meeting?

Announce what? New Rider Rep or Michael's Business? Probably the former, not sure about the latter.

I am trying to figure out what I can do to make sure people can reach me/find me if they need to.

I am also trying to get clear on some of the nuances of happenings at the track so I can help others be informed about the things that can affect them.

I had a friend tell me they went down to complain about another rider and was told they only had x minutes after the race to register a complaint and it was too late.

I am sure I will learn quite a bit at the july round as I will be at Start/Finish on the other side of the perspective and working with timing and scoring to see if we really can do hybrid grids without paying $$$$$$ to rewrite software.

Eric, I am planning on walking around a bit saturday and sunday to introduce myself as well. Might be good to grab Cassie and the three of us do it together?
I try to go over the nuances with the new racers that I mentor. I think it would help if the rider reps were formally intro'd at the riders meeting instead of just rasing their hands in the crowd.

If the "complaint" was a protest, then yes, you only have 1/2 hour after the end of the race to protest. If it was some other type of complaint, then I do not know that there is a time frame.

Ya, those brake pads get pretty expensive. That's part of what I meant about racing vs. just doing track days. Why waste a perfectly good brake pad if you aren't trying to win a trophy.
