PRICING

Memberships can be purchased at Creative Zone for $100 for adults and $50 for kids. Membership allows you to use the outdoor track anytime you so choose (via a key to the gate) and have discounted race entry fees on race events for both indoor and outdoor. You will receive a sticker and membership card which should be kept on you when you come to either track. Becoming a member helps us fund exciting new features as well as improve on what we already have.

INDOOR RACING INFORMATION

Our indoor facility is located within the Skeena Mall next to Save-on-foods. Carpet racing provides extremely high traction and very fast paced racing.



WHEN

Currently, we are going to be running on every Friday and/or Sunday.

Friday 6:30pm - 9:00pm
Friday will be an open practice day in the evenings as the mall is open late. Come down and burn a few batteries for fun.

Sunday 1:00pm - ???
Sunday will be the day we hold race events. The type of event will vary from week to week. The club will be posting when events will occur as well as times etc. Generally we will start practice/qualifying at 1:00pm and the racing will follow.

*Note*
You will be required to purchase or own a Mylaps transponder for the vehicle that is entered into any event. For more information about purchasing a transponder, contact us or visit us when we are at the track.

CLASSES

**IMPORTANT**
Here are the classes we run at the indoor track. If there is enough interest, we will most likely allow minis as well. For now, take note of motors, batteries, and tires we use.


RULES

- All vehicles MUST be clean and free of any dirt, mud or debris. Includes tires, plastics, bodies etc.
- Chassis screws must be tight and should not be protruding to avoid damaging the carpet upon impact
- No "pin" style tire is to be used on the track. No exceptions. This includes tires such as Proline Blockades, AKA Cityblocks etc. Stock Traxxas Slash tires and similar treads will be allowed
- If you drive outside the lane, enter back where you crossed the barrier or your lap will not be counted
- Racers, allow marshals to safely flip your model over after a crash to avoid injury
- Allow faster drivers through if they are about to lap you
- Please refrain from walking/running on jumps and obstacles when possible
- Use extreme caution when marshaling on the track. The models travel at very high speeds especially on carpet
- No disrupted behavior. This includes name calling, swearing, reckless driving etc.
- No smoking/alcohol will be permitted
- No littering. Bins will be in place to throw away your garbage/recyclables

OUTDOOR RACING INFORMATION

COMING SOON!

It is our hope than many people begin using this thread as an alternative to the Facebook group as it will provide communication back and forth for those who aren't currently using Facebook. For that to happen easily we need as many people regularly coming to this thread to answer and ask questions.

We just started out doing indoor and the majority of people have offroad buggies and short course trucks. The track can definitely be changed to bypass jumps so tc are able to run on it. Jzone currently is the only person we know of that has one so far.

The usual turn out. The young kid who got the truck given to him from the fund raiser was out. He had a blast....has good restraint with the truck and made it around the track without much issue. He's getting more Batts and will be back next Friday for sure haha.
