Default MILE HIGH INDOOR CHAMPS - 5280 Raceway - Denver, CO - April 11-13 2014

Mile High Indoor Champs
5280 Raceway / Denver, CO
April 11th - 13th, 2014

Register at http://www.milehighindoorchamps.com
  • Nearly unlimited track time (7AM - 12 Midnight)
  • 96x42 CRC HD Carpet / Clik-Trak Boards / sub-floor
  • Best lit track in the country. It's bright!
  • World's only custom LED scoreboard.
  • Full coverage on LiveRC.

One of the finest facilities in the country, 5280 Raceway is a permanent indoor carpet track located in the heart of Denver.

On-road racing needs another quality 3 day event, run by experienced racers who know exactly what it takes to make racing fun. We understand traveling to race is expensive, and feel it's important to deliver not only a quality experience, and enjoyable track layout, but also a large amount of track time to test and tune. Sitting in a building for 12 hours a day to only get 10 minutes on the track has its place, but that's not what we're about. Get the most for your dollar against quality competition at a nearly perfect track.

Entries to this event will be limited, so when signups go live, and we'll give you plenty of notice before they do, be ready. The race will fill up fast, and has been extremely popular the last 7 years.

Classes
17.5 Sedan
13.5 Sedan
Mod Sedan

17.5 1/12
13.5 1/12
Mod 1/12

13.5 WGT

F1

More details to come as we get closer to the event.

I've been told by the landlord that we have power to both sides of the other unit and the HEAT is now on....... no more frozen man meat. Hahaha

We are looking forward to hosting everyone for the 2014 MHIC.

We are talking about dropping the 4th qualifier Sunday morning. Last year we we ran pretty late. We don't want anyone to miss flights.

Yup! I think we'll most likely follow the same formula we always have. Which is:

Layout goes in Wednesday night. Track is open all day for practice Thursday, club race Thursday night. Practice Friday, quals saturday mains sunday. We're still trying to decide if we need to run another qual Sunday or what.

yes. we will set up the mhic layout wednesday night, and have open practice all day to run in a groove, club race thursday night, open practice all day friday. 3 quals saturday(and possibly a fourth depending on time). short open practice sunday morning, followed by trip a's.

last year we ran a fourth qualifier sunday morning, but it really put us in a time crunch for guys trying to make flights out sunday night.

sorry for the double response, adam beat me to it. :-)

I was just lucky. You had typed out yours first, but your dog knocked over your cup of coffee and gave me a chance to sneak my post in while you were cleaning it up. Basically, yours was first.

This sounds like a nice idea if the plan is to run triple As on Sunday.



Based on the flights right now on Southwest.com, the latest I can schedule is 8:20pm. Which is right about perfect if things wrap up @ 5pm... although I have no clue how far the Denver airport is from the track.
