Default 2007 ROAR ON ROAD ELECTRIC NATIONALS - *** VENUE CHANGE ***

Due to unforseen circumstances, the 2007 ROAR On Road Electric Nationals will not be held at Peel It Raceway as previously stated on the ROAR website and on the entry flyers.

The National Event will be held at Seattle Indoor Raceway. The same weekend as planned. This track is very close to the airport racers flying in will be using.

The venue will be held at Seattle Indoor Raceway.
Phone:: (425) 251-6119
Address:
7633 S. 180th St.
Kent, WA
98032
Website: www.seattleindoorraceway.com
Email: [email protected]

Hotel accomodations previously made in the Marysville area should be cancelled. Doug, the owner of SIR, will be emailing me soon a list of hotel contacts in the airport area and I will post it here and on the ROAR website for those needing to make arrangements.

The event WILL be held the same weekend and nothing else has changed. The tire selection will more than likely change and that information will be published in the next day or so as well.

The track owner of Peel It Raceway regrets the necessity of this change but for the best of ROAR and our racers, the event must be moved.

Each entrant to date has been contacted personally by telephone. If you have not received a phone call from me, this would indicate I do not have a copy of your entry flyer. Please check with [email protected] to see if it has arrived. (he emails me copies of the flyers so I have contact info)

I can be reached at [email protected] should you have any concerns or questions.

Dawn Sanchez
ROAR Vice President

Seattle Indoor Raceway is pleased to announce we will be hosting the 2007 ROAR Paved On Road Nationals. SIR is a local hometown track, however we are no stranger to hosting and organizing large events. For the past 3 years SIR has been the host for the Tamiya TCS Regionals. This year was the biggest Regionals in history for this area and one of the largest in the country with 150+ entries with 100+ people. SIR has also been the host of several ROAR Regional events. The bottom line is the guys at SIR are committed to make this race a fun and exciting time for everyone!

Seattle Indoor Raceway is conveniently located less then 5 miles from Seattle/Tacoma Intl Airport. Within a 4 mile radius there are 30+ available hotels, one within walking distance. The largest mall in the area is located 2 miles away, also around the mall are many places to eat and shop.

If you already made plans to attending the race at Peel-It Raceway then this change only means less work for you. SIR is closer to the airport and with way more accommodation options. The time and schedule have not changed at all.

Entry Form:

See official entry form.

http://www.roarracing.com/downloads/...Entry_Form.pdf

Rules:

See ROAR 2007 Rules Handbook.

Track Schedule:

See official schedule.

We will have extended track/hobby shop hours for the people showing up the days prior to the event to practice. Also we will be having our regular weekly club races and all out of towners are more then welcome to participate.

SIR is located in the back southwest corner of the complex

Shipping:

SIR will accept and store packages in a secure locked room before the event. Please make sure the person's name that is picking up the package is on the To/From label because we will be checking ID's. Mail packages to the following address.

Seattle Indoor Raceway
C/O 2007 Nats YOURFULLNAME
7633 S. 180th St.
Kent, WA 98032

We have regular shipments from UPS and Fedex at the hobby shop. If you package and attach pre-paid shipping labels we can arrange pick-up services after the race. Otherwise there is a Fedex/Kinkos and US Post Office 2 miles from the track just on your way back to the airport.

Online coverage:

ROAR has arranged with LiveRC.com to provide live timing and scoring broadcast along with audio for all ROAR National races in 2007. We are investigating adding a live video feed from one or many cameras around the track. More details to come.

Pits:

Pits are a first come, first serve, starting Wed morning 8AM. There will be reserved areas for sponsor's teams which will be clearly marked. You will be able to leave your stuff in your pit all week if you choose to do so. Due to the expected amount of entries we will have a pit space in an adjoining warehouse in addition to the track side pits. The pit space will have tables, chairs, power, PA system, and live race timing video feed. Plenty of outlets will be provided, however bringing your own power strip is recommended. Pit space size will be approx 30" x 30". There will be no shelves provided in the pit spaces, if needed please bring your own.

On-site Hobby Shop:

SIR has a full service onsite hobby shop. We carry spare parts for several of the major brands. Feel free to contact the shop to inquire if we stock parts for your given chassis. We have plenty of common use items and ones you can't take on the plane; motor spray, shock oil, bearing/bushing lube, etc.

Handouts:

The handout motor for the stock class will be the Trinity CO27, for 19t the Trinity cross-wrap Komodo. The hobby shop will have extra handouts for sale in addition to the one included with your entry.

The handout tires will be RP-36 glued and mounted tires. We choose this compound after extensive testing and found it provided very good traction and performance with minimum wear. Tire compound is open to any available brand/type.

See official entry form for pricing and more details on handouts.

Internet Access:

SIR will be providing free open wireless internet access throughout the entire track and both pit areas.

Please feel free to post, PM, or e-mail questions to the following individuals.
