Default pit spaces

Don't forget...

We are only set up for 85 racers.

A pre-entry will put your name on a spot.

Pit spots are approx. 3' wide x 2' deep

We will have a soldering area set up, tire truing area, food, clean rest rooms, a wii, and few pieces parts in the H/S.



More info on class rules (ie. rubber tires and foam tires to be used) will soon be posted

Sorry Mike, The center spot is spoken for


Rubber tire spec for the Grandslam Series will be the same as previous years, Solaris med, Sweep 32, Jaco Blue, may be purchased prior to the events.

Info for Foam is still being compiled, tentatively it will be open tire but limited to 3 sets per event with allowances for damage.

The WGT and Mod TC are not planned series classes due to extremely poor following last year, it will be open to discussion if racers desire. More series details to come soon.

See you all in October, linen pants optional
