Default USSRCRA Race 1 Oct 13

The United States Scale RC Racing Association Race #1
The Track @ Harbor Hobbies
Winthrop Harbor IL
http://www.harbor-hobby.net/

This is the first race in a new format for scale racing cars. Each class will have a 3 minute qualifying period, followed by 3 x 10 minute mains. Best five laps average will count for qualifying, laps do not need to be consecutive. Each main will be worth 100 points, with a 2 point TQ bonus. Points will be awarded by best time of each round of mains, not by main finishing position, so it is possible for a C main racer to post the best time and collect 100 points! Winner will be determined by day's point total (302 max. possible)

Classes:
USVTA TRANS AM

USVTA USGT
Rules - http://www.usvintagetransam.com/rules/index.html

Formula One:
No Timing "Blinky" ESC 21.5 BL 2s lipo ROAR Approved motors and ESC
open rubber tire - must attach to axle by single nut fastener/hex drive
straight axle 2wd - no I R S suspensions
All suspension pickup points must be inside body (no 1/12 front ends, etc)
190mm width
3mm ride height
1050g minimum weight

LE MANS:
205mm width
No Pan car/wgt wheels - must use single nut attachment/hex drive
Must use IMSA/Group C/LeMans prototype style SCALE body - Rear wing should not be part of the molded body
2wd
17.5 motor No Timing "Blinky" ESC 2s lipo ROAR Approved motors and ESC

Le Mans class is being developed right now, so for this race rules are minimal. This is to encourage racers to bring whatever type of car they have (F103GT, F103LM, Cross Fire Force, Speed Passion, etc). With feedback from this race, rules should become more developed.

More information to follow..........

Any F1 that fits in the 190mm box, along with the other rules. SP1 should be fine

Other cars on track. Entries are sorted into heats (random draw) and run for the 3 min qualifier. The beauty of the 5 lap seeding is that you don't have to start heads up and run like crazy for the full time.

You can space yourself out with traffic and peel off a couple of fast laps, wait for another gap, more fast laps, etc. Much easier than typical heads up or ifmar style qualifying in that you're not 'racing' each other for position. You can focus on putting in fast flying laps and save the racing for the finals.

We use the same type of format for UF1 and it works great.
