Your example is a driver that normally races 13.5 and 17.5 at big races - and is not a dominant force. While he does get his way paid to races (he attends a couple travel races per year) it is as an engineer and as someone to assist other racers, not as a pro racer.
Understood, thanks Rick.
I hope to stay in 13.5 for this race. It was fun last year!

That's the only way to enter the lottery from what I can tell.

Richie, I don't think the info was that personal. I think they ask for all that stuff for stats during the race

hi Juan.
WOW?! You're not the only person that is asked to provide this information. If you feel that your information as that confidential, than maybe you might want to sit this one out. There are plenty of racers here waiting patiently for the opportunity to participate in this event. So it's your call if you want to be apart of something cool.

hi Juan, Probably see you there. I said the one a couple years ago was my last one, kinda retired, but what the hell, haven't been to the Tamiya track since 04.

The cost includes 6 sets of race tires. Each driver will probably use 3 additional sets of practice tires.

This must be for Invitational only.

Are any tires included with Open and 13.5?

Can anybody comment on what time this race normally wraps up on Sunday? Wondering whether I can catch a 7pm flight or if I would need to fly out on Monday morning.
