    Default Nitro Rallycross 2023 in Calgary

    Is anyone going to this? Apparently it's the first time it's coming to Calgary. I think I will take the family but not for the VIP thing because it's their first crack at it and I bet it's just not worth it.
    I'm not psyched that the cars are electric as I think the lack of noise will detract from the fun. I'm also fairly worried that it will be -33C and sitting outside will give me Super AIDS.

    I have the same thoughts... electric rally cars is a neat idea but the lack of noise just isn't the same.

    Look at how people reacted to the video of Ken Block and the electric car ..the lack of noise made it seem really tame.

    Whatever the one Travis Pastrami is in. I think he's competing in it.
    *Don't care about his last name. I can't keep it straight and there's that Bruins player with similar name.

    Maybe they’ll have some tire burn barrels to stay warm and offset the situation.

    It’s only 6 laps per race. Presumably they’ll just keep the batteries warm via plug in or in a heated area so can’t see any loss in power from the cold. That being said … fuck I don’t know if I wanna be outside and roll the dice for the weather.

    I'm not worried about the cars, it's my balls freezing to the stadium seat outside.

    The wife was gonna get me tickets for my stocking but I told her to hold off.

    If I get tickets it'll be last minute - Playing it by ear with the weather.

    Sounds like a blast, minus the blast sound effects. I'm planning to go but as mentioned above waiting until weather forecast is out, -10 or so is my cut off. Any colder beer freezes too quickly.

    Weather looks like it could be okay for the Feb 4 and 5 events, but they just bumped the start time back 3hrs, and I can no longer make the Saturday event we have tickets for. Just listed a pair of GA tickets for half price.
