Default 4th Annual CGRC Invert March 18th-19th

I am very excited to announce that Cottage Grove R/C Raceway will be hosting its 4rd Annual South Valley Invert...March 18th and 19th!

Sunday Race Information:

*Controlled Practice for all racers from 8:00am to 8:30am
*Drivers Meeting @ 8:45am
*Racing Starts @ 9:00am

Invert Race Structure:
3 Rounds of Rocket Round Qualifying (Single Fastest Run Counts) = 5-Minutes Each
Triple A-Main Events = 5-Minutes Each
Double Lower Mains = 4-Minutes Each

6 cars will qualify directly into each main event with 2 bumps to complete the 8 car field.

If there is a 3 car lower main, they will all be put in the next main for an 9 car main.

Triple A-Main Format:
A1 - Start in qualifying order
A2 - Start in invert finishing order from A1
A3 - Start in combine finish of A1, A2 (1 point for 1st, 2 points for 2nd and so on) (lowest points start first)
(tie-breaker for A3 starting position highest single qualifying round)

Tie-breaker for finishing order will be combined time for the 2 mains used. Your worst finish is completely thrown-out.

Double Lower Main Format:
All B, C, & D-Mains will be ran as doubles and back to back. 4-Minutes each, with the winner from each main bumping to the next highest main. If you win the first main, you donít race the second and you will start in the higher main in 9th. The winner of the second main will start in the higher main in 10th. Starting order will be the finishing order from the first main less the winner. There will be one minute in-between the two mains. No changes can be made to your car between mains. If you break in the first main a pit man can fix your car if it can be done in time for the second main.

If you have any questions about the race, please post below so I or Chuck can answer your questions.

No 4wd short course? Is the Pro2 an open motor class?

Pro 2 is open. 3 makes a class. If you find enough 4wd sc I'm sure we would run them.

The tire of choice for tonight have been slicks. If you have slick make sure you bring them. There is a high possibility that slicks will work next weekend for the race. i will have slicks on hand in the hobby shop for those that don't have them.

There is no question that slicks are the tires. Full treads are loose and slicks have all the grip and corner speed most racers can handle!
