Race Day Schedule
Doors will be open for track setup this season to start at 6am with practice to follow. The quicker the setup, the more practice time there will be. We will plan for 3 rounds of qualifying based on entries and Single Mains. Our Scheduled end time is 6PM. We must be cleaned up and out by this time.

Help us with Setup
  • Doors will open at 6am with Setup commencing immediately - Arrive by 6:30AM and help setup, for fee reimbursement
  • Practice will begin when the track is 100% complete. Many Hands Makes Light Work
  • Registration will open at 8:30 and close at 9:30… a 5 minute warning will be given.
If not registered by 9:30 you will miss the first round. If you are going to be late TEXT someone to add you into your required class and a spot will be kept in the lineup for you. Pay an OGR Board Member when you arrive….

Drivers meeting will be called at 9:45… please ask any questions and address any issues during this time

Pricing
Same as last year, but to encourage setup help, we are adding setup deposit.

First class $25
Second class $10
Additional classes $5

Setup and Teardown Deposit $10
-$5 back for setup, $5 back for teardown

Out of towners $25 flat rate. Please let us know when you register if you're from outside the Lower Mainland.

Races will begin 5 Min after the completion of the Drivers Meeting.

We are expecting a large turnout of new Drivers this season… PLEASE remember this is a HOBBY and these are TOY CARS… PLEASE help out the new guys as much as you can. We want everyone to enjoy the hobby and by being the open and welcoming group we have been for the last few years, we can hopefully grow our hobby as much as we possibly can.

Hi-Performance Distributors Loaner Traxxas FordGT Scale Spec
Our local RC distributors have stepped up and given us a NEW loaner car for new drivers to try our sport.
We would like if you could message us on facebook or post on here if you'd like to reserve the car for yourself or a friend that day.

Hi OGR management,

Victoria's WCICS race date is confirmed for January 11-13 2019 this year. This is one week later than usual as the normal date was getting a little too close to New Year's Day. We will most likely stick to this new date moving forward as it will make travel easier and cheaper for our guests.

Hopefully you can swap your club date? Sorry for the confusion but we had not yet announced our date as we waiting for approval from our venue.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Blake

Those wondering about the 12th scale situation:

A few racers and myself are planning to support stock 12 for the entire season. Note that the motor spec is 17.5 blinky, with plenty of options. Mod 12 is fun, but not worth taking away from the stock class to the point where the numbers are too low to be run. Once we have a healthy stock class, we can think about a mod class later on in the season or next year.

Euro trucks, no more bashy bashy, its going to be fun entry level racing.

We can always use more setup helpers in the morning.
Less than a month!

Default Any 21.5 motor??

Big Block Scale Spec 21.5
Any on-road 1/10th scale RC vehicle FWD cars will follow the same rules and weight
Motor: Any 21.5 Open Gearing


Open 21.5 motor or roar approved 21.5 motor? That will make a big difference🤔

Default Sept 29th Winter warm up.

Hello everyone,

Hope everyone had fun coming back to the gym . It's good to see new faces and old faces.
We are trying out some new set ups to the track and islands.
Seems to be working better and needs a little more tweaking.

Once it's done, the layout will change after the Big Chill.
We do this changes every year to make new challenges and fun for everyone.
Today I'll post the results for this race. We had 2 qualifiers and the mains.
Lots of time to wrench,lunch and test on your cars in between, worked out well for everyone.
We will continue on for the next 2 club races as no points series won't start after Big Chill.
Thanks and hope to see more of you next club date.

Default Oct 13 Race results

Hello everyone,

Good to see everyone again yesterday. Awesome day of racing.
We voted in to get 3 qualifiers instead of 2 and the mains.
We strapped on a tight schedule and proceeded pretty good.
Marshalls and volunteers stepped up the game which was a bonus.

Hope everyone keeps it up all the time. The races went as smooth as it can thanks to you.
I can't remember all the Novice guys name but it's always a pleasure from us to cater you all.
Racers from the South, come back and visit us soon for more fun and laughter.

Attached here are the results. There's not many videos taken but check out our f.book page if you haven't.

Cheers.
