Default 2021 ROAR Carpet National March 11-14

As the ROAR Nats get closer we at Coastal are preparing for a safe race. Temperature checks on entry to the facility. Masks are being worn by all employees. Cleaning every night and throughout the day. We have installed clear dividers on the drivers stands. Clear Pit separators available to anyone wanting them. We will have lots of cleaning and disinfecting supplies on hand as well as plenty of hand sanitizer. We look forward to seeing everyone soon.

We were only allowed 3 exhibition classes and unfortunately F1 was taken off.

itís a 12th scale pan car class that uses gt style bodies (real cars) vs the LMP type bodies that are normally used on 12th scale pan. Thatís about the only rules thatís the same.

some tracks run 2s with open 25.5t motors
some run 1s with open 21.5t motors
some use a 21.5 Reedy spec motor
some use spec USGT motors
some use spec foams (purple line normally)
some use spec rubber tire (SJT tires)
some use spec gears
i believe over in England they only allow certain chassis
i heard there was even a track in central Ohio with a spec ESC.

The GT12 rules are as follows: Any 1/12th chassis- 21.5 motor- open gearing- usually foam wgt purple stripe tires but this race is Rubber tires- Any GT body and 1 cell.
Since when is F1 and exhibition class? LAst year F1 was there and did not allow GT12. This year GT12 is an exhibition class and F1 is out? I was looking forward to making this race for my two favorite class but I guess not again.

F1, when run at the ROAR nats, has always been an exhibition class. Stock, Super Stock and Mod TC and 12th are the 6 official ROAR classes. Anything else would be considered an exhibition class and is typically left up to the host track to decide....they get to pick 3.

In another thread you mentioned writing to ROAR to complain that they didn't have GT12 at the nationals. Now they do. The race is also over on your side of the country this year. What's your reason for skipping the race, again?
