Myself, Gordy, and Connie are in for sure. The Curby's won't be able to make it. Looking forward to the finale.

UF1 Series has the track starting at 9 a.m. saturday morning with a 12:30 start time. We expect to be finished around 5 p.m. and then the track will be open practice until 8 p.m.

Sunday we will open at 9 a.m. with racing starting at 12, USVTA/USGT(regular race fee unless running UF1 series), will be the only 2 classes to run with the UF1 event.

The UF1 Series is an 8 race series over 4 weekends, (Harbor,Hot Slots,Hobby Stop West), with your best 5 race days counting towards your point total.


Pitlane is in place, and the "curbs of death" are out and in play.

Eric
Is this still accurate? Any practice times for Friday? Thanks

No, it is not. Full practice from 12-8 on Friday.

Same format for Saturday as Rd 1.

Sunday will be the same except for an 11 a.m. start with the 9 a.m. opening and USGT/USVTA will run as well.

I am pretty psyched about this weekend, I think we will have a fantastic battle for the championship. I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to join us for the series, I hope that this is the beginning of something big.

Is Friday practice open for TC or other classes? I know it's not F1 but I've been intending to get up there to see the track before the USVTA race.

You just jinxed it! Geez!



Looking forward to a great weekend of F1 racing for the series finale. Too bad the banked corner couldn't be done.

Next year I vote for a Suzuka style crossover. That or a old Nurburgring style layout with a crazy long lap time or night race like Singapore.

Let's just say.........there are a few "soft" curbs to keep things interesting

Other on-road classes may use the track as well, however, F1 will have priority usage (if that makes any sense ).

The track is dialed. It will be on.
That is all.
