I see it a little differently. It's like this. A lot of these guys like VTA for the look of it as much as the door to door racing. They think about the big races and many plan for it all year and even a couple years in advance. So they will save their best shells, or make the most effort for the premier USVTA event of the season. Or at least save it for a big race that has a concourse event.

Concourse has all cars on the straight. Lined up in formation and separated into their classes. Cameras and video are capturing the glory of the spectacle that happens when you get so many great looking RC cars together in this miniature Trans am madness. Winners are picked based on appeal and application to the rules. Prizes are awarded. No you don't have to paint up a new shell for this race, but if you do have an especially nice shell, save it for this event instead of beating it up at local club races.

Default Concourse

Hi Everyone.

There seems to be a little confusion for the concourse awards, so hopefully I can clear them up for everyone.

The concourse is basically a free car show that is done before qualifying starts, where everyone (that would like to) puts there car on the back straight, organized by class, to display, show off, and take pictures of. (which myron will most likely use to promote the 2015 edition of this race)

There will be a judge for each class, who is unbiased and has no entry (car or paint job) in that specific class, that will pick the top 3 for each class. That judge will select the winner of that specific class as well. Then the 4 judges will get together to decide the overall winner between the 4 classes.

The Overall winner will receive a 4 ft trophy and a certificate for a 100% free paint job from rockstar paint. The individual class winners will get a class winner plaque, as well as a 50% off paint certificate from RockStar Paint.

If any of the winners paint there own bodies, or have their own painter they use, and wish to not use the certificate, thats totally ok. Then give it to one of your friends/table mates/buddies friends to use.

Hopefully this clears everything up. If not, just ask

And the 20% discount is for paint jobs before the race, to be used at the southern nationals. So if you are looking paint, the offer is out there.

Thanks!

Michael Jones

Weight Specification:
Minimum 1550g in race-ready trim

- 5 minute qualifiers

- Absolutely NO IFMAR-type starts. All heats and mains should be straight-up starts, with random sorts for each heat. Non random sorts should shuffle starting order for each heat.


Optional Main Variations:
- 12-20 car A-mains, depending on car counts.

- "LeMans" type starts where all cars are lined up on an angle to the racing line in order.
- Run track in reverse rotation for mains.
- Rolling starts




MOST IMPORTANTLY: If it's not in the rules, and does not encompass the spirit of slower, controlled racing with realistic looking cars, consider it illegal. This is called the "Spirit of VTA" Rule. The class is based on slower, equal playing field competition with less traction, minimal aerodynamic aids and mostly older carpet racing technology. The final objective is close, fair, wheel-to-wheel racing for all.


All decisions of the race promoter or track owner are final.
