Default Ready to Run Raceway 2015 Summer Racing - Vancouver RRR

We're proud to bring another fun and intense season of on-road racing to the Lower Mainland.

Prices are the same as last year. However, second class charge is now in effect, as we barely broke even last year. This year we absolutely have to.
That said, it is still inline with than OGR's prices, which are fair for Vancouver area rent and operations costs.

The tear down deposit encourages all racers to help with tear down. Those helping with setup on Friday nights get surprise rewards

We are a non profit club, everyone pays, everything goes back into the racing, insurance, track materials, parking charges. Ask us for full numbers if you're interested.

Facilities:
Bring your own tables, chairs and canopies. There may be some canopy space for those without.

No washrooms on site. There is a McDonalds 1 minute away. Parking is included with race entries, we are charged per car parked in the lot.

We encourage those with generators to bring them and plan with a few members to share costs.
There is shared power available with the club generator, the first 8 racers arrived without power may tap in for $2 for the day.

Time Schedule:
Fridays:
6PM Track Blowoff
630PM Track Build

Saturdays:
9AM Traction Laydown
930AM Open Practice
11AM Round 1 followed by a lunch break and continued racing

Can't wait to start racing, See you there!

Looking forward to it. Also I'm in talks with a few suppliers and I'm hoping to have tires and sauce on sale trackside. Still working out the details though.

Mini turn out is usually pretty good. You will at least make the minimum car count to race

Great season opener. We liked this part of the lot and may run on it next time.

Today's track was perfect for high speeds, full heats and smiles.

Next race day is May 30th!

Get your cars ready:
mini, TC stock, VTA/GT, TC mod, f1, nitro

Results to be uploaded
