This is the second 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.

For THIS ROUND ONLY we're going to allow foam tires on the LM cars. At this point there is not a good alternative in rubber tires. So brace yourselves and keep the small children away from trackside...

You guys Suck! I may have to find a way to this race.

There was a really cool restaurant we all went to Friday night before the UF1 event last year. Some distillery. Socko, you remember that?

Thanks to everyone that made it yesterday. The weather was not cooperative unfortunately. Those that weren't there missed out on a good time. I didn't get any pics as I had to fill in as race director on short notice.

I will compile the results and post them this week.

The easy stuff:

VTA - TQ and win, Mike Jones
F1 - TQ Rick Vessell, win Rob King
USGT - TQ and win Rich Murphy

We also saw the debut of the Awesomeo action figure. Suitable for use in VTA as a driver figure. Travis ran it the entire day with no ejections from the vehicle.

Kevin Kane will now be known as 'His Holiness, Saint Trucker Hat'.

We also had 3 of the LMP cars but only 2 were race ready and my having to run the event prevented us from putting them on the clock. Next time.

More later...
