Now that the Off Road Race has come and gone. It is time to change our focus to the On Road Event. The dates did change about a month ago. The correct date is April 24th and 25th.

The ROAR site is still showing the original March date. I have requested that to be updated.

The tech and rules sheet per class will be posted soon. If you have any questions, feel free to PM or email me.
Thanks
Steve

I have not heard of ROAR actually being on site or at this event.

Our on road program is much more organized then off road and is very experienced in running tech. As you know, we probably tech better and more often than any other venue in So. Cal.

Very True Steve. Your tech is really good but remember this is not a club race it is a regional race. I've been to a couple of regional races up North (ripon racetrack) Reuben was the Roar representative. His tech was pretty strict and always gave away Nice Plaques to the A main 1-10 in each class

Motor Tech
1) Take apart motor in front of motor Tech
2) Tech measures rotor
3) Tech measures resistants
4) You put motor back together
5 Tech seals motor screws

Battery Tech
1) measure voltage
2) check temperature of battery

Tire Tech
1) This all depends on the rules. I think he let us buy 2 sets for qualifying and 1 more if you make A main.
2) all sets were teched by tech

Weight
1) what ever the weight limit is at that time

I know camarillo is a club track and it would be hard to do all that teching. But as long as all rules are posted before there should be no problems.
I support the track 100% and your rules.

Important Race info update:

The Roadrunners RC Club has several goals for all of our events, large or small. One of them being that everybody has a good time and everybody gets some great racing in. I have said it 100 times before, we are a club, not a business, we are all volunteers, we are all racers doing this for the love of the hobby and for fellow racers in Southern California and beyond.

Another goal is trying to keep the cost of racing down while putting on large events. The club has review the cost associated with racers buying tires for a 2 day event. We concluded that if we teamed up with a tire company and incorporated a spec tire rule, this would help racers save some money as well as level out all the playing field in the Touring Car classes.

So, for this race Roadrunners RC Club has teamed up with Solaris tires as a spec tire for all TC and Mini Cooper classes.

Rookie Class:
Solaris/Roadrunner RC Club is sponsoring this class. Each Rookie driver will receive one free set of tires from Solaris. Each rookie driver will also receive a second set of free tires compliments of the Roadrunners RC Club. Both sets of tires will be handed out on the first day of qualifying. Both sets will be marked for tech, these will be the only tires allowed for qualifying and all mains. These drivers will also be able to buy practice sets as outlined below also.

Mini Cooper Class:
Roadrunner RC Club is sponsoring this class. Each Mini Cooper driver will receive one free set of tires. Each Mini driver will also have the option of buying a second set. The first set of tires will be handed out on the first day of qualifying. Drivers will have the option of buying a second set of race tires. Both sets will be marked for tech, these will be the only tires allowed for qualifying and all mains. These drivers will also be able to buy practice sets as outlined below also.

17.5, 13.5 and Modified Touring Car:
Drivers for these classes can buy 2 sets of tires on the first day of qualifying. Both sets will be marked for tech, these will be the only tires allowed for qualifying and lower mains. If a driver in one of these classes makes the “A” main either by qualifying or bumping up, the driver will have the option to buy one additional set for the “A” main. These drivers will also be able to buy practice sets as outlined below also.

Practice tires will be available to buy at track side on the remaining scheduled On Road race days leading up the event and during the scheduled event practice day prior to the event, Friday April 23rd. The remaining scheduled club races are as follows, March 14th, March 28th and April 11th. Practice sets are limited to (2) sets per racer per day and cannot be used on race day.

Practice sets sold on club race days will be on the current Solaris dish style rim. Practice sets sold on event practice day Friday April 23rd and race day sets will be the new style Solaris spoke rim.

Keep in mind that the club has subsidized the cost for club members only…just another benefit of being a club member. These prices are for this event only. Once the event is over the tires will be carried by our local hobby shop at regular manufacture suggested retail prices.

Club member = 20.00 per set
Non-club member = 25.00 per set

Questions?
Steve
