Carolina Winter Indoor Points Series!   This will be a 4 race series, at 4 tracks, over 4 months. We are going to try some different things to try and make things a little more interesting!

Race #1:
Location: The RUG, King NC

Date: Jan.14th

5 classes: 17.5TC, F1, USVTA, 1/12th scale and Mini.

F1: 21.5 motors, USVTA F1 rules (rubber tires, 1050g)

  • TAMIYA Mini 2- classes:

  • "Box stock "except allow the following substitutions: Bearings OK.

  • "Open Mini" ROAR 21.5 brushless, or stock brushed motor is legal.
  • Blinky ESC
  •  Any scale body designed for the Mini is allowed. No wings.
  •  Bearings may be used.
  • Any Tamiya Tire for Mini
  • Any other mods are OK.
  • Any FWD or RWD "Mini" Chassis allowed. 

17.5TC: ROAR rules. Open Tire

USVTA: US Vintage Trans-Am rules- ROAR approved 25.5 motors & Novak.

1/12th Scale: 17.5 motor, open tire.

Entry fee: $25 per class, with $5 of each entry going towards big-ass trophies at the end. :) The track gets the $20, and I'll donate any leftover trophy funds to charity.

Points: 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1, everyone gets at least one point. No Drops. That way each track's race is equally important.

Race Format: 2 qualifiers, double A-mains. Inverted grid for 2nd A-main.

I also have designed a t-shirt and other event items and am selling them through our Cafe Press store.  All net proceeds will go towards event trophies and other prizes.

Thanks!

You should advertise November 6th as a warm up race, especially for the Mini drivers. Just sayin'. :D

Why no usgt class? I can run 17.5 but I see you guys added vta to the series. Why not just run them all so no one has to change just to run the series. I plan to attend either way, but it would be nice to run the class I want to run. Thanks for any feedback to this suggestion.

USGT was considered, but I was trying to get some variety in the classes.  Between 17.5TC, USVTA, F1, 1/12th, and Mini we should be able to bring some variety.  Adding USGT would lengthen the day's program and I'm trying to keep the time reasonable since these are one-day events.

Thanks for planning on coming!

Mark
