I have been working on this for a couple weeks now. We have a great year planned for the Skagit Fairgrounds in Mount Vernon. I am happy to announce that Allen Taxdahl and myself (John Vick) will be the race directors for this season. I hope you all can make it. We are planning on a track expansion along with better laid out pit area. The carpet track will be 80+40 feet (maybe plus a couple feet on the length).There will be some more tables and chairs. You can always bring your own table and chair
As for classes we will be running the same rules as Seattle Rc Racers. That includes traction compound rules of only SXT. We will welcome all classes including F-1 and WGT. Just remember it takes three to run a class. That brings me to the next big thing. If a class has 5 or more that start the A main, the winner of that main will get a gift card for a free race. (good for next time they come racing, card is only good for same class again,and not transferable to another driver) You do not have to be a ROAR member at this time. We are a ROAR Club but we run our club races with our own insurance.
Here is the on-road schedule for NORA this winter-
We will have 13 race days plus one practice and the hobby show weekend. I am going to try and work with the on road personally to help it GO BIG this year. Kerry B and I have talked and these dates look like they will work great for our club. Also we will be having an early driver's meeting @ 11:30 with racing to follow ( doors open around 8:30 am track by 9 am) Let me know if you have any feedback or can help with track set up and tear down.
