Hello my fellow IIC addicts.
Well we are just about a month out and I guess as each day passes we all get more and more excited about our time in Vegas! Things on our end are moving along great. Entries are looking good and now some of the teams are getting entered. Names of note joining this year.
Team Xray as always will be there but this year they will be adding the full European Team as well. So it will be great to have all these guys joining in the fun we have at the IIC.
Along with the US Team of
Also confirmed for this years IIC will be Team Yokomo. Yokomo who just earned the season Championship in the ETS Modified Division will be ready to run on the rug at the Riviera.
To all our drivers in the Spec GT class. We are very excited to have Tekin as the sponsor of this class and we will feature the Tekin RS GEN2 Spec Speed Control and the 17.5 Gen 2 Motor as our Spec Systems for the GT Class. Each drvier in the Spec GT class will get a brand new Spec System and motor to use for the IIC. These Systems have all been tested by Tekin to ensure everything is all set and perfect for this exciting Spec Class. This spec system along with the awesome looking bodies will make for one of the best classes at the IIC. Racers will also have the opportunity to purchase these systems after the IIC for a fantastic price! Tekin will be there to fully support everyone in the GT class as well as all other classes with setup help and advice to ensure everyone has a great time at the IIC.
To our Amateur drivers. This class will be sponsored and supported by ORCA and will feature their ORCA TX17.5 Motor. These motors and all ORCA Products are sold and distributed in the US by Eric Anderson of Team EA Motorsports. EA will be personally inspecting and testing each and every motor to ensure all are equal and nobody will have HP advantage. EA as well as Keith Yu who distributes ORCA in Canada will be there to help all drivers in the ORCA Amateur class with gearing and setup help as well as all other racers using ORCA Products.
We are again proud to have Protoform Race Bodies as a sponsor of the 2013 IIC and they will again be providing all racers with a quality Protoform Body included in your racer goodie bag. Dale and Eric Epp will again be joining us at the IIC and you will be able to meet them and chat with them at the Sponsor Meet and Greet being held on Tuesday night after practice.
To those who have never been to the IIC or are still thinking about attending I wanted to let everyone know about the event. Your entry fee includes not only your race entry but also a ton of stuff that pretty much makes your entry fee a wash. Each racer gets a goodie back with products from our sponsors equaling close to $100. You get a full buffet dinner Monday night during the drivers meeting. Tuesday you get to attend the Sponsor Meet & Greet that includes free Beer and Tacos. This is a great way to talk with our sponsors in an relaxed environment and get some free drinks and food while enjoying some good conversation and catching up with old friends and making some new ones. And finally you get to race with some of the best racers from around the world and have fun in one of the most exciting cities in the world, LAS VEGAS. So many racers come back each and every year because of the good time and good friends they have made over the years and the fun we all get to have enjoying this awesome hobby we all love.

NATE & CLEGG: As for shirts during the Amateur class. Event shirts are fine, we just don't want Manufacture logo shirts being worn. Our goal with this class is to focus on the racer.
After 8 years of putting on the IIC I still get so excited as we draw closer to this wonderful event. I look forward to seeing all the friends we have made through the years from around the world and all the great new memories we will make at this years IIC.
