Jesse asked me the same thing?....Korgae and Mr.Purple are supposed to be setting their end of the series up. I talked to Korgae 2 weeks ago and we talked about some details as I wanted to get the info out to all of you before it was too late. Korgae said it was to be a 3 city series including Victoria, Vancouver and Kamloops. Reguardless of if or when the other cities get their details worked out, Kamloops is a go....FOR SURE! Hope to see you all there. February 25th to 27th, 2005

Dave, MSN for details but in a nutshell.

The series wil be in full effect for next season. This season will have 2 dates one by the new Langley track and the other with Kamloops, Victoria will be in it next year. (Blake and the group want to be a part of this but they have some issues to work out)


It was decided to create a series that has impact and focus for racing in BC.

The Series is based off of the successful Alberta Tri City series.

Rules: ( exactly the same as Alberta with the acception of the mains) This has been done and Alberta has been notified of our plans. which are to have some sort of Province championship in the future.

1) Club must be non profit.
2) 10 turn Mod
3) Foam tires
4) 5 minute 1/10 scale and 8 minute 12th scale.
5) and sedan type body.
6) IFMAR qualiy
7) Triple mains.

I beleive our date will be announced at the next club race once the date is set with Sonny.

Kamloops has annouced 8 weeks before the event ( which is a guideline in our rule book)

I beleive ours will be in March and will hopefully feature a guest driver. ( pending)

It's a postive start for racing in BC, hopefully a backbone to build on..

Default Should be a good thing

I think that this series is very much needed here in BC. In recent years there really hasn't been many 'big' races to go to, each club held its own small event to hand out trophies and see some out of towners.

Since the Abby race has stopped running, onraod ahs taken a bit of a nose dive here in BC, no one wants to travel, no point without a BIG race to prep for, the Abby race. I think this series will bring the incentive to travel back to a lot of the racers both locally and province wide. This should be the beginning of the rivival of competitive racing in BC.

Hope to plenty of faces at the Kamloops race, it will be nice to race more than a few different people again.

Hey Guys, good luck with this series !
I hope it really takes off.
The racing here in general really benefits from having the series we attend.
And I love your idea of triple A mains !!

Ricky

IFMAR- you are racing the clock not the other drivers. If someone catches up to you they are running quicker so u let them by, same for you if you catch up to someone who started ahead of you they should let you by.

Each driver is on their own clock,and the computer will tell you who is leading and how far apart the drivers are from each other.

I'll explain to you in more detail later.

Wow! Took me a while to remember my passowrd. Haven't logged on in ages.

Anyways, just a quick note.


Vancouver Minature Auto Racing (VMAR) is up & running. We are doing shakedown excercises within the club right now, to work out the bugs. But we look forward to holding the 2nd leg of this 2 city tour. We are in the mid-stages of a preliminary local points series, which is intended to prepair our club & administration for such an event.

That's all I can say for now. More info to be released soon, so stay tuned.
