why must everyone create new rules to fit ther own needs.. Rules are Rules

Hey Jimmy, heard you and Brandon had a great race. After taking each other out, you both waited for each other. That's how racing should be. It's nice to know there are still a few clean gentleman driving these days.

Hello everyone,

Things continue to roll as we get closer. Awards are all set and I am sure everyone will again enjoy them. T shirt looks great so those of you that received the email we sent out because you forgot to list your T shirt size make sure you email us back as soon as you can since I have to send the size list to the printer.


Over the past couple of weeks I have received some email about drivers wanting to run RCGT as a second class, I spoke with Rick at Reedy and we have decided to allow drivers to enter a second class if they wish.

Here is the format.
You can run only 13.5 and RCGT or Mod and RCGT
If you are entered into RCGT, you can also run another class either 13.5 or Mod.
You cannot run Mod and 13.5 classes.

Entry fee for the second class no matter what the class is will be $45 and this includes 1 set of tires.
When you mail your second class entry in, just note on the form that it is your second entry.


SIRSWIFT: The RCGT class is about fun and cost savings and realism. In the RCGT division you get a set of HPI X Pattern tires included with your entry, this ensures that all participants are using the same tires. I understand you have sets of tires already and you can use them during practice, but as we have done since the early days of the RROC we have used spec tires for the event. The 13.5 and Mod drivers will be using Jaco tires for those classes. Yes we will have enough tires. Rules in RCGT are that each driver gets 1 set included with your entry and you have the option to purchase 1 additional set for the entire event. If you have any other questions, please let me know and I will be happy to answer them.

Thanks
Scotty

NICE!!

Being able to run two classes will make the event even more fun!


Charlie,

Yes, Brandon is great to race with. I ran him over numerous times, he gathered up his car and we continued without a word. I was trying everything to get by, he would hold or take the line which is nothing less than what I would do. THAT IS RACING!! And that is why RCGT is the best TC class yet.

Default RE: RCGT

Also RCGT class entries will receive a free HPI body with they're entry (...in addition to the free set of Spec tires)

...and we'll be bringing up some Team Falken, Hankook and other full scale motorsports swag for the RCGT entries!

If we are running RCGT as a second class and have already sent in the reg. form, do we need to send in another along with a second check.....or can we sign up at the track?

Thanks
Steve
