IROCC Speed Weekend 2017 Summer Onroad Asphalt Trophy Race - Victoria, July 8-9 2017


The Island Radio Operated Car Club (IROCC) in Victoria BC is pleased to announce its Speed Weekend 2017 Asphalt trophy race this summer. This year's event will follow last year's two-day format with four rounds of qualifying, triple A-mains, and double lower mains for all electric classes. The 10th Scale Nitro Sedan class will run single mains with bump-ups.


Race date: July 8-9, 2017


Classes:

Touring Stock
-17.5 motor, blinky ESC, 1350g

Touring Modified
-Open motor, open ESC, 1350g

Touring Nitro
-.12 engine, foam tires

Scale Spec
-21.5 motor, blinky ESC, 1450g

Formula 1, Mini
-These classes are dependent on entry count


Touring Stock/Mod Rubber Tire Rules:
Last year's race was very competitive around tires. To keep costs down for everyone, there will be a two-set maximum for the Touring Stock and Touring Mod classes. In both classes, racers can choose their favourite brand/compound (Must be 32, 34, or 36 compound only), and our tech team will mark the tires. Only marked tires will pass tech. Racers must bring their own tires!

Team Powers 34 tires are an excellent pick for our track, and they are the "club tire" locally. These tires will be available for sale at the race for those that want an easy tire solution.

*** Kids and novice racers are exempt from tire rules.

Another (expensive) hotel option:


If price is not a concern, there is a new Holiday Inn Express that opened up the street from the track, just a five minute walk away.

IROCC is two races into its summer race season. We installed a new layout this year that is providing some good racing in all classes!

We race most Sundays. If you'd like to come over to join us for a club race, let us know and we can make arrangements to pick you up from the ferry.


Thanks,
Blake

Hey Ed,

Yes that's not a problem. Let me know what ferry you're thinking about on the Friday and we'll get you hooked up.
