Race Day Schedule
Doors will be open for track setup this season to start at 6am with practice to follow. The quicker the setup, the more practice time there will be. We will plan for 3 rounds of qualifying based on entries and Single Mains. Our Scheduled end time is 6PM. We must be cleaned up and out by this time.

Help us with Setup
  • Doors will open at 6am with Setup commencing immediately - Arrive by 6:30AM and help setup, for fee reimbursement
  • Practice will begin when the track is 100% complete. Many Hands Makes Light Work
  • Registration will open at 8:30 and Close at 9:30… a 5 minute warning will be given.

If not registered by 9:30 you will miss the first round. If you are going to be late TEXT someone to add you into your required class and a spot will be kept in the lineup for you. Pay an OGR Board Member when you Arrive….

Drivers meeting will be called at 9:45… please ask any questions and address any issues during this time

Pricing
Same as last year, but to encourage setup help, we are adding setup deposit.

First class $25
Second class $10
Additional classes $5

Setup and Teardown Deposit $10
-$5 back for setup, $5 back for teardown

Out of towners $25 flat rate. Please let us know when you register if you're from outside the Lower Mainland.

Races will begin 5 Min after the completion of the Drivers Meeting.

We are expecting a large turnout of new Drivers this season… PLEASE remember this is a HOBBY and these are TOY CARS… PLEASE help out the new guys as much as you can. We want everyone to enjoy the hobby and by being the open and welcoming group we have been for the last few years, we can hopefully grow our hobby as much as we possibly can.

Hi-Performance Distributors Loaner Traxxas FordGT Scale Spec
Our local RC distributors have stepped up and given us a NEW loaner car for new drivers to try our sport.
We would like if you could message us on facebook or post on here if you'd like to reserve the car for yourself or a friend that day.

Will you be doing any "open track practice days" or will they all be race days?

Default Scale Spec Weight Update

Initially inspired by the Seattle RC Racers club, Scale Spec was set to 1450g to accommodate the older style tub chassis of WAY BACK. Seeing as most chassis need about 50-150g these days, OGR has also adapted to 1400g minimum weight for Scale Spec.

Default Oct 14th club race results

What a great start for our winter indoor season. Thanks to all that had attended. Now you have experienced the new black carpet and new lighting in the gym. All is good and fun racing.

Congrats to all the winners from last winter series. Hope you all would use the certificates.

This winter also starts the new Euro truck class. It's just so much fun running them. All box stock with just bearing as upgrades allowed. Cheap class to get into.

Like to thank Hi Performance Distributors for dropping off couple of the traxxas GT cars as loaners for people who wants to try out rc.

There's probably more for me to say but save it for later as we move along we will get better. Attached are the results. Enjoy.
