I would like to thank Steve Wang and Chris Lim for laying down some ground work earlier in the planning process. Due to family obligations, they are no longer assisting in the management of the series. Please direct ALL questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's race!!! Get those RCGT cars on the track and tuned up at a track near you.
I hope to race the series this year, I just had a few questions.
Do you need to pre-register to be part of the series?
Is the fee to race the normal fee of the track hosting the event?
what is the Tekin V200 esc?
Thanks for any responces,
1. Nope, just come out and sign up at the track at the events you attend!
2. Yes, whatever the normal fee is will be the race fee.
3. Not quite sure which model the V200 is, all I know is I can't afford it .
Hope that helps hope you can make it out this Season it'll be fun!
