It seems that it is kind of funny that as we plan each year for the IIC we have watched our industry go through many changes. From Brushed to Brushless, from 6 cell to 5 cell, Cells to Lipo, 4 cell to 1 cell and now it is the massive and accelerated change in speed controls that faces us. As all of you who have attended the IIC know, our team always tries to do what we feel is the fairest and best thing for you the racers as well as what is best for the IIC, Our Team has worked very hard looking at all the scenarios and options there are and we think we came up with a great class structure that will give everyone fun options to run at the IIC no matter what your ability is or what your passion for racing is.

*Discount coupons at the Rivera for shows and souvenirs
* Great event T shirt designed by Dusty Kemp.
* Professional ID Badge commemorating the 2010 IIC.
* Tuesday Drivers Meeting Buffet Dinner in the Ballroom at the top of the Riviera.
This was a tremendous hit last year giving everyone a chance to relax, socialize away from the track and fill your gut with all the great food you can eat.
*Wednesday night Sponsor Meet and Greet with more free food and Free BEER, YES FREE BEER! For those of legal drinking age of course. Last years event was crazy! Everyone had a great time and it was a perfect way to wrap up practice.
*A race venue that is second to none in the world of RC Racing located right on the Strip.
*Tech inspection managed by Jamie Tennies who is one of the most experienced and well respected guys in the business.
* The Staff at the IIC will bring you the best, most on time race program you have ever attended. Each day when you arrive at your pit, there will be a time table listing exactly what time your race will be on the track. If it says your in race 22 and it will start at 208pm. You can be assured it will start at that time. This allows you the racers the chance to plan your day so you don’t have to stay at the track the whole day, you can go out and win lots of money in the casino if your lucky or explore all the Las Vegas has to offer.
So as you can see, your entry feel includes so much more that just the right to race in the event. You get great gifts, great food and the best event possible. And when you compare this to what other events charge, you can see that the IIC is a great deal.
We invite you to ask around and talk to racers that have attended the IIC and you will see why racers return year after year.
If you have any questions at all, please let us know and we will be happy to answer them.
I look forward to seeing everyone at the IIC and let’s make it a September to Remember.
Scotty and the IIC Team.
