After this past Sundays Winter Series Race and getting feedback from racers and new prospects, we have decided to Officially announce the New Edition of the "Junior" Class to IGT8F.
This class will work in conjuction with our current "SPEC" Class but is designed for Racers 12yrs and under ONLY.
The difference in the "Junior" Class it will now be:
-OPEN: Car/Chassis; still has to be a GT8 car but Short, Long, 1/8 or 1/7 or conversion will be ALLOWED.
-OPEN : Motor; Any .21-.28 or RTR/Pull Start will be ALLOWED.
The IGT8F "SPEC" Class will remain as posted for 12 and older.
Or until a "Junior" racer has Placed Top 3 on Podium in more the 4 occasions. Then He or She will be Graduated given an Award and a Certificate of Achievement by IGT8F and now has the option to run full "SPEC" or "OPEN/PRO" in any event.
(Btw these young RACERS can drive)
**RACE FORMAT BY LAW**
In a Race event each class "SPEC" & "Junior" must have a minimum of 6 entries to run in separate heats and mains.
In the event the entry minimum is not met, both "Junior" & "SPEC" will run together. The Rules to each class will still remain as Posted per Class.
As an added BONUS to help bring our young Racers out to race.
IGT8F entry fees to Series and or Sponsored/Affiliated events are 50% less for "Junior" Class Racers.
Our current Winter Series entry fee is only $10 per class, so "Junior" Class racers would be $5.
The Gulf Coast-Raceway GRAND PRIX November 22-24th 2013 will also include this new "Junior" Class. Entry to this event will be posted and on RcSign Up in the next 48hrs.
