I hope the BRCA follows, 5 minutes seems a little short sometimes.

No changes in oval racing time limits that I am aware of officially. Oval racers hopefully will adopt the 6 mins but I haven't heard from them about it.

Finally... Instead of trying to get the most power for 5 minutes you have to think about getting 6 minutes before the battery starts to dump...

A 20% increase in time is a good thing!!!
Good job ROAR...

National Events:
• Track hosts for nationals will be in charge of creation of nationals entry flyers and advertising. ROAR will
utilize advertising space among RC Magazines to advertise all events fairly and equally. ROAR
encourages track hosts to contact Promotions Director to utilize contacts for discounted space given by
the magazines
• Rule 5.2.8 will now reflect a two classes/two vehicles ruling.
• ROAR will allow the track host to open the track for practice time no more than three days prior to the
first day of racing. In most cases this means the track may not open prior to Wednesday of the event
which should be considered an open day as ROAR will not be present.
• ROAR online nationals registration program approved along with proposal from Corey Cochran for fees
and monthly maintenance.
• Radio Impound: update in nationals guidelines. The area of impound will be at the discretion of the
host although impound rules will apply. All radios must remain in the off position in the working pits
area or the racer will be removed from the event.
• Race Lengths were approved in electric racing to move to six minutes for qualifying and main events.
AAA mains will stay in place as listed in rule book and guidelines. Reminder of policy of less than two full
heats of a class, the Race Director may choose to have single A mains at level 5 events.

New Classes implemented: (no national program for 2009)
• 8th Electric off road
• Vintage Trans Am
• World GT
DAWN,
This was on the ROAR memo linked above.
I think he is asking for more info on what it means new classes implimented: (no natinal program for 2009)

True, the new classes do not have their own nationals designated as of yet.
