We decided to trim the fat, so to speak, since last years race had 12 classes and Sunday ran way too long. Unfortunately, WGT was right near the top of the list, it seems like a fun class just not much interest in it in our region. VTA was another victim that is marginally popular at non-USVTA events that just did not have a strong showing for us.

We left some classes available that we do not expect to reach the minimum of 18 but figured they'd have the best shot of reaching it with a consolidated list. GTR, for example, may make it since WGT was eliminated. We expect TC 13.5 and 1/12th Mod to not make it but should see larger fields in TC Mod and 1/12th 13.5. I'm signing up for TC 13.5 but if it doesn't make it I will jump into Mod (which should be entertaining for everyone else at least).

Our intent is to offer the most popular classes with deep quals and mains to have better matches of skill level which should improve the quality of racing for everyone and also improve the time factor and fun value of the weekend.

Hopefully there is another class that appeals to you or would consider trying
It's tough, but the Gate crew is right on top of it as usual. We're having to consider the same issues for the Champs and have come to the same conclusion in WGT. It is a super cool class that just doesn't draw the attendance needed to support it at a national level event like the Classic. While that may upset people, it is not meant to and it's a necessary part of putting on a great show. I'm glad the Gate crew is brave enough to look at these issues and make the gutsy calls. Keep up the good fight fellas.

-spec handout tires (TBD) for 1/12 17.5 class (4 set max)

Can we get some clarification on this fairly quick (over this weekend, before the sign up goes live) as I and a few others run Pro-One hubs/tires.
I (we) were planning to run 1/12th 17.5 and WGT-R, but need to know if I'm not going to be running 1/12th now.
Are the hand outs included with the sign up cost or on top of that?

The 1/12 17.5 spec tires aren't finalized, but they will be on the BSR/CRC rim.
The 60 entry fee does not include them.

Will they be available for purchase at the gate? Like the tc tires? And if so what is the price?

Thank you for the fast reply.
Will keep an eye on the thread, but at this point I'm most likely out.

The Summer Slam was a USVTA event so it drew in the VTA people. Last year's H Classic only ended up with 12 or 13 VTA entries.

Yes, just like the TC tires in the past. 4 set max, they will all be labeled, 20 per set.
