I heard a rumor once.
Top 10 @ Ifmar worlds
Top 10 @ Roar Nats (Mod)
Top 10 @ Reedy Race Of Champions in Invite last year
Top 10 @ JMRCA
The winner of the Mod class @ Reedy Race Of Champions last year

And some exceptions Like BK last year. There are a few names that will always deserve the invite.

Masami I believe also has a lifetime provisional for the invite class not that he may ever need it LOL!

The heats are set- up randomly so that as many people race as many others as possible. Then the grid is set up so that each driver starts on each row (4 rows, 8 races) twice.

It was always an awesome race in this format. I wish they would bring it back.

LiveRC is the plan, if we can get a good internet feed. Last year we ran a line from Tamiya all the way to the scoring booth. Did not work very well. We are currently working on a different plan and we are hoping this will work. Doug Hay from RCScoring Pro is the man with this stuff and if it can be done, he is the man to get it done.


See you next week
Scotty

Default Wednesday afternoon?

Realizing that the track doesn't open until Thursday morning, I vaguely remember that last year we were allowed to show up and use the pit area to make sure all of stuff had arrived in one piece, etc.?

Will the pits be open Wednesday afternoon?

Hi guys, well we are off to the Reedy first thing tomorrow AM. Looking forward to another great time in Sunny Cali.

Pit question: Unfortunatly the pits will not be open on Wed. Pits will open at 6:30am Thursday morning. We need to make a few announcements for this years event.

PARKING: THE CUL DU SAC THAT BRINGS YOU TO THE TRACK HAS TO BE SHARED WITH US AND THE CHURCH. THERE IS NO PARKING ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE STREET. THE SIDE NEXT TO THE CHURCH. THIS IS NOT OPTIONAL, THIS IS THE WAY IT HAS TO BE. THERE IS ALSO NO PARKING IN THE ENTRACE ROAD TO THE TRACK. LOADING AND UNLOADING ONLY.
YOU MUST PARK IN THE TAMIYA PARKING LOT OR ON THE STREET ON TAMIYA'S SIDE. ALSO. WHEN YOU ARE WAITING TO ENTER THE PITS EARLY IN THE MORNING. WE MUST KEEP THE NOISE DOWN. SO WE DONT GIVE THE RESIDENTS AROUND THE TRACK A REASON TO CALL THE POLICE.

WE HAVE ALL BEEN THERE BEFORE AND WE KNOW SOME GUYS WILL STILL DO THESE THINGS. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DOING ONE OF THESE PLEASE HELP US OUT AND LET THEM KNOW OF THESE RULES.

Thanks for you help with this guys. We want this race to be the best Reedy Race ever and with everyones help, it will be.

See you at the Reedy.
Scotty
