Am I crazy or what? I signed up for 3 classes; World GT, Formula 1, and Vintage Trans Am. I have to wait until Feb. 15 to pay for my registrations. I hope that I don't pass out while juggling 3 cars during the Nats.

2012 ROAR Carpet nationals

Quote:
4. Entry per class.....whats the reward, trophy, cash, smiles ?
$85.00 per class, I know there will be trophies and door prizes like any National Event but I do not know what they will be.

Quote:
5. How many days?
3 (4 if you count pre-tech and pit setup on Thursday).

Quote:
6. How big is the track?
I think the total carpet area is 64 x 98 but we race on 42 x98 for national races and a little less for weekly races (for tarp storage at one end of the track).

Quote:
7. Is there an entry list?
Here is what ROAR is showing so far.

Couldn't tell ya. Ive heard that speedo's are blinky speedo's. Other than that, im not sure about this class. Best bet is to email roar and get a for sure answer on rules that you are concerned with.

2. TC 17.5 Stock...ROAR rules?
Roar rules.

3. Host hotel....where, how much. Not sure, I usually sleep in my office during big races haha

4. Entry per class.....whats the reward, trophy, cash, smiles ?

Most likely your reward will be smiles from experiencing a different track and seeing the most bad ass hobby shop in the world. As far as I know, if you plan on making the top 10, then you may get a plaque or similar for your effort.


5. How many days? 3 days, friday is the start of controlled practice

6. How big is the track?

Normal drivers do 12-14 sec laps when its a technical track, elite do 11.. sometimes 10

7. Is there an entry list?

There is, check the roar website under national events. I recommend people signing up asap for the race so that accomidations can be made by the hobby shop and fellow promotors of the race.

Thanks...Battman

Wow, this may be my first big carpet race, now I need to make sure my employer will let me go for a long weekend before I sign up and pay.

Oh I'll go, I won't give up this chance to run full-blown mod. My car is cranked to the kill but so far all I've run is boosted 13.5, so mod will be silly fast.

P.S. I think all "stock" 1s racing should be 13.5 blinky, 17.5 blinky is just a bit slow for me. We went faster with brushed stock motors and NiMH, and not just a little faster.
