Default VMAR presents: Vancouver Touring Car Challenge

Vancouver Miniature Auto Racing is proud to present the Vancouver Touring Car Challenge - 2005.

This will be our big summer outdoor event, with trophies, prizes, and a lot of jive talking. Dates are August 27 & August 28.

Classes will be the following:

- Electric Sportsman (anything goes, since this is the beginner class)
- Electric 19 turn (Novak Brushless allowed)
- Electric Modified (no motor limit)
- 1/10 nitro sedan (any .12 nitro motor)

Registration is only $20, $10 for additional classes.
Every person who registers gets added into the raffle. Tokyo Racing (proud sponsor of VMAR) has given us a 49cc Pocket Bike *$499 retail* and an Office Chair Racing Seat *$349 retail* to raffle off. Additional raffle tickets will be $5.

Every racer who attends will also be given a prize. Still finalizing who will be donating prizes. However it will be RC related (We wont be giving away old muffins or anything like that).

AAA mains will be in effect (sans Sportsman which will be 5 mins). Nitro A main will be 30 mins. All other nitro mains will be 20 mins.

There is a Best Western on 264th st, which is basically across the street from the track location (264th & Fraser Hwy, Langley). The pavement is fresh & new, and the back straightaway is 160ft long.

Flyer will be posted shortly.

Hey Chuck.

I hear there quite a few guy's planning on going over to repay the favor. tons going to be racing nitro. I guess I will have to buy a mod and a 19 turn to race there. Since were mostly a stock club.

See you guy's in August.

cyruss:

You're welcome to run a stock motor in the sportsman class, or even in the 19Turn class if you want.
But if you're comming, let me know. I got something that you can use.

Hey Chuck,


Sounds like great fun! I'll be there for sure. Let's hope that IROCC can represent in full force - just as VMAR did for our race!

If any IROCCers need a 19T motor, I've got an extra one that I could lend out for this race.

Hey Chuck, I know the official race flyer is not yet available, but some of the things we'll need to know are:

Friday practice? If so, what time frame?
Schedule for Saturday morning. Practice, first qualifier, etc....
Schedule for Sunday afternoon. What ferry will we be looking at?


Thanks,
Blake

Hi Blake. Look forward to seeing you and other IROCC guys there.

There is a concourse
There is also a good sportsmanship award (so lets all behave)
All trophies will be made of Carbon Fibre, thanks to Gemini Composites, one of our club sponsors

Tokyo Racing, an import auto tuner and another club sponsor, has allowed us to raffle off a Pocket Bike *$499 value* and Racing Chair Office Seat *$349 value*.

Savage RC, Team1 Hobbies, Hi-Performance Distributing, CanWest RC, and MuchMore racing will also be donating prizes to give away to racers.


Looks like its going to be a good one. Looking forward to seeing you all there.

We are racing this Sunday. If anyone would like to get a feel for the surface/environment of the track before the date of the event, they are welcome to race this weekend.

Hey Lui,

I'm certain that it's only the Novak Super Sport that we're allowing in 19 turn. The SS 5800's are very similar in performance to a 19t. In fact, a well-tuned 19t motor is usually a fair bit faster than the Novak.

You raise a really good point though with regard to the other systems that are coming on the market - if someone wants to come out with a hotter brushless setup, please let us know so that we can sort things out beforehand with the membership.

We definitely won't be running Reedy NEO's, Novak GTB's, Plett, Hacker, etc. in 19t....

Needless to say, this issue is a bit of a challenge for ROAR and the industry as a whole right now. We'll do our best to accomodate people as the voting members of the club see fit.

We have seen this already during carpet season, the brushless is way faster in the infield against 19t...... also brushless is alot more efficient than brushed motors so the batteries are pretty much in full power thoughout teh whole 5 mins...... I hink someone should bring out a brushless motor this weekend and we can test it out.....

19T is the biggest elecric class we have here, I hope we dont screw it up because of this..... my .02

My wife changed our holidays so I could go to this race. So I'll be there.

We did try running the brushless in 19 turn on carpet and the Novak Brusless is alot faster. I'm glad I won't be running in 19 turn.
