Just an idea, i know i start to feel a headache and cough from it about the 2nd day usually....or maybe that's from the shots at Dodie's in Addison
We have zero issues accommodating 300 entries within the facility. Since it is a National race, I would suggest staying away from Addison for the weekend haha. Ive never had a headache and I know for a fact we have done some crazy amount of paragon spray in the past. With that being said, if it does become a widespread issue, im sure that the race management (whomever that is from Roar) can step in and ask us to open up our bay doors out back. I dont see this being an issue though as the track area is probably 30k sq ft and there will be plenty of pit spaces wherever you would like to go to get away from the paragon.

I have not seen a final answer from them on those two. I expect the weight min will be 1100 to 1200 g and I would bet the min RH would be 5 mm.


In addition to the 3 bay doors, we have large roof mounted exhaust fans we can use if there seems to be a problem with the odor. They move enough air to replace all the air in the building every 20 seconds. I don't expect or plan to use them, but they're there if we need.

ROAR let me know this weekend that on-line sign ups for Nationals will close sometime Sunday evening 3-11-12. If you need to sign up after that you'll need to do it in person at the track on Thursday. This way all on-line entry fee payments will be posted to ROAR's account and it will avoid any discrepancies. Signing up Thursday will be first come first served and tech will running starting at 6, so best bet is to get it done online before Sunday.

Dirla is to mod as Juan Pablo is to jet fuel

Poor Hebert and Blackstock. Better bring the parts trailer.

Does anyone know if Tekin 223 will be legal for this race? Can Andrew or someone from ROAR let us know as soon as possible?

Thanks...

I highly doubt it Art. It only arrived today and considering the testing time and exsiting queue.

5mm seems high for a pan car?(104)

You'll have to run what ever version is legal on the ROAR website at the time of the race....at this point that is 212. Ron is the one that does the Speedo testing and if he is saying that its doubtful that it will be tested before the race then I would anticipate running 212.

And technically I think the 14 day rule for stock classes makes 223 invalid at this point anyway as we are within that window for the start of the event.

I believe the WGT rule is 4mm ride height.
The F1 chassis is quite narrow compared to WGT.
