I don't think that was Essnowyt's question... I could be wrong (will not be the first or last) but I take his asking if he will have enough time to change out motors so he can run 2 classes with one car... Again my take on his question....

Is the class running order going to be separated to allow racers time service their one car? Or is the class order going to dictate no significant time between like chassis classes?

If you made the amain in both it would never work. They are back to back..

Don't know how you could easily do that in the time scale even if finals were seperated. From my experience its not just about swapping over the motor and batteries, there would need to be subtle set-up changes to get the car and speedo to work a their optimum due to the different power and speed of motor/car, little point of going racing if you give yourself a handicap.

If you fancy running in two classes, you really need two cars, again from my experience its a lot easier if both the cars and all the electronics are the same, it also important to have 2 transponders as it makes it loads easier for you to keep a record of lap times in both classes.

I was at this facility for an outdoor race this past weekend. I took a look at the on-road track and it was very nice. The drivers stand was high enough in the air so you could see the whole track without any difficulty. If you got hot watching the racing you could walk into the air conditioned pits to cool down. The on-site shop was well stocked too including snacks and beverages. Now I only wish I still raced on-road.

It's not too late buy a car set it up. Pull electronics out of those akward off-road things and come and play.

I decided to take a family vacation during this time or I would have seriously thought about it.
