2007 ROAR On Road Electric Nationals
Seattle Indoor Raceway is pleased to announce we will be hosting the 2007 ROAR Paved On Road Nationals. SIR is a local hometown track, however we are no stranger to hosting and organizing large events. For the past 3 years SIR has been the host for the Tamiya TCS Regionals. This year was the biggest Regionals in history for this area and one of the largest in the country with 150+ entries with 100+ people. SIR has also been the host of several ROAR Regional events. The bottom line is the guys at SIR are committed to make this race a fun and exciting time for everyone!

Seattle Indoor Raceway is conveniently located less then 5 miles from Seattle/Tacoma Intl Airport. Within a 4 mile radius there are 30+ available hotels, one within walking distance. The largest mall in the area is located 2 miles away, also around the mall are many places to eat and shop.

If you already made plans to attending the race at Peel-It Raceway then this change only means less work for you. SIR is closer to the airport and with way more accommodation options. The time and schedule have not changed at all.

Entry Form:

See official entry form.



See ROAR 2007 Rules Handbook.


Track Schedule:

We will have extended track/hobby shop hours for the people showing up the days prior to the event to practice. Also we will be having our regular weekly club races and all out of towners are more then welcome to participate.

Seattle Indoor Raceway

We have regular shipments from UPS and Fedex at the hobby shop. If you package and attach pre-paid shipping labels we can arrange pick-up services after the race. Otherwise there is a Fedex/Kinkos and US Post Office 2 miles from the track just on your way back to the airport.

Online coverage:

ROAR has arranged with LiveRC.com to provide live timing and scoring broadcast along with audio for all ROAR National races in 2007. We are investigating adding a live video feed from one or many cameras around the track. More details to come.


Pits are a first come, first serve, starting Wed morning 8AM. There will be reserved areas for sponsor's teams which will be clearly marked. You will be able to leave your stuff in your pit all week if you choose to do so. Due to the expected amount of entries we will have a pit space in an adjoining warehouse in addition to the track side pits. The pit space will have tables, chairs, power, PA system, and live race timing video feed. Plenty of outlets will be provided, however bringing your own power strip is recommended. Pit space size will be approx 30" x 30". There will be no shelves provided in the pit spaces, if needed please bring your own.

On-site Hobby Shop:

SIR has a full service onsite hobby shop. We carry spare parts for several of the major brands. Feel free to contact the shop to inquire if we stock parts for your given chassis. We have plenty of common use items and ones you can't take on the plane; motor spray, shock oil, bearing/bushing lube, etc.


The handout motor for the stock class will be the Trinity CO27, for 19t the Trinity cross-wrap Komodo. The hobby shop will have extra handouts for sale in addition to the one included with your entry.

The handout tires will be RP-36 glued and mounted tires. We choose this compound after extensive testing and found it provided very good traction and performance with minimum wear. Tire compound is open to any available brand/type.

See official entry form for pricing and more details on handouts.

Internet Access:

SIR will be providing free open wireless internet access throughout the entire track and both pit areas.

Very kewl, thanks for the information!! ....I'm dropping my wife and son off at the pier in Seattle at 2:00pm on Friday the 6th , as they are going on an Alaskan cruise for the week, so looks like I can start breaking parts at your track daily as of Friday the 6th up to the nationals :nod:

Anthony.L 05-21-2007 08:09 PM

Thanks, my goal was one thread with the first post having every possible bit of info people would need.

I'll be adding maps for the directions and pics of the track and facility soon.

Rest assure we are working very hard to make this race awesome. We just found out last week but in less then 24 hours at full speed! :D

Wow, great job posting all the required information. Nicely done.

Desolas 05-21-2007 09:28 PM

Nice post, Anthony..that's probably the most coherent thing I've ever seen on RC TECH. :) This should be a great race.

rchoudini 05-22-2007 08:52 AM

This will help out all those who are wondering and have so many questions.

EricW 05-22-2007 09:14 AM

Any pics of the track?

rchoudini 05-22-2007 09:28 AM

EricW 05-22-2007 10:38 AM

Thank you, looks nice.

fjm9898 05-22-2007 11:56 AM

has a tire been choosen yet?

Difuser 05-22-2007 12:47 PM

FJM not yet we have an idea but we are waiting for the care pkg from Schumacher so that we can test all the compounds. We have 2 of them tested already. The goal is to be able to make a decision by Friday. I gave all my employees a 4 day weekend so that I can be down Friday AM early to get to the final choices.

Anthony.L 05-23-2007 10:47 AM

Due to Reedy gobbling up all the RP-30 tires we will *might* not able to complete tire testing this week. Stay tuned, as soon as they arrive we will have some news.

anyone coming to nats and looking for a little cheaper place to stay, do a seach for auburn washington and look up the motels, the only one i have in memory right now is days inn. nothing fancy, but it has a casino right out front, plenty of places to eat and a "meat" market right next door. i can give you rides to and from the track. its 15 minutes away,

All times are GMT -7. It is currently 06:34 PM.
