Teams: ANY 4 or up to 6 drivers may participate on a team, regardless of track or geographic affiliation. So if you want to even get a guy who you meet at the track the Saturday of the race on your team, that is fine

The title belt will go to the overall champion of the A group. We will have trophies for both the A and B groups for the top finishers.

The Tekin and the SPX are both at the top of the results right now, that's a hard choice to make. You do need additional equipment to access all parameters on the Tekin though.

Any servo with good torque and around .10 transfer time will be more than enough.

Got 2 more commits from the Omaha area to attend. That puts us to 3 and a possible 4th depending on the weather as a last minute attendee. Also picked up a driver for a team!! Now can we just skip March this year... I'm ready to go!!

Can anyone post a count of entries so far?

How many total rounds of racing should we expect to run on Saturday and Sunday?

There are only 18 drivers that used the online signup...there might be more that have mailed in their entry forms or phoned them in I dont have that exact total at this time.

The plan is for 6 total rounds of "Reedy" Race format racing....with 2 or 3 rounds of qualifying to sort out the field and seperate the top half and the bottom half.

Saturday will look like this....
2 or 3 rounds of qualifiers...based on turn out...under 60 cars 3 rounds over 60 cars 2 rounds
3 rounds of racing

Sunday
Final 3 rounds of racing
20 car super main.....Top 10 from each half race in this.

So, if we were going to post a racing agenda for this VTA only event, it would look something like what I've posted below. I am not suggesting these are accurate times, but I based this on 80 entries having 10 heats with 8 cars in each heat (5 minute rounds + 3 minute break = 8 minutes x 10 heats = 80 minutes + 10 minutes lost time between heats = 90 minute rounds)

Friday - April 3, 2009
- Open to Close: Pits are open. No VTA Practice

Saturday - April 4, 2009
- 8 am - 1:30 pm: Controlled VTA Practice
- 1:40 pm: Concourse and Drivers Meeting
- 2 pm - 7 pm (approximate): 2 or 3 rounds of VTA qualifying to set Group A & Group B (3 heats if 0-59 total entries or 2 heats if 60 or more entries)
- 7 pm - close: 3 rounds of VTA racing using "Reedy" race format

Sunday - April 5, 2009
- 8 am - 11 am: Controlled VTA Practice
- 11:15 am - 4:45 pm: 3 rounds of VTA racing using "Reedy" race format
- 5 pm - 5:30 pm: 20 car Super VTA MAIN (top 10 drivers from Group A & Group B)
- 5:30 pm - 6 pm: Awards and Raffle after conclusion of all racing.

Using my rough agenda above based on 80 entries, this will give me plenty of time to drive back home. Can't wait for April!

I did pull the practice/start times from the race flyer. Based on my experience at Harbor Hobbies, they run a good show.
