Default NORCAR's 2014 Grand Finale!! April 26 and 27!

That's right Kids!

Time for the NORCAR's Grand Finale!

It will be:

April 26 9am to 10pm (open practice) (fresh layout will be down, never run on)
April 27 7am doors open racing by 8:30am (3 quals and a main)

**Grid Works Racing will be the sponsor of the event and Chris Goetz will be the "special" guest announcer!**

Every racer will recieve a "gift" when signed in.

We would like to welcome Viper as a sponsor too!!

We're going to keep the cost down and not do awards.

$20.00 first entry OR $25.00 run as many as you want!

Classes:

1/12 17.5
1/12 "spec" (**Per NORCAR's rules**)

WGT 13.5
VTA 25.5
USGT 21.5
F1 21.5 (depending on total entry number, we may run three 6 min. quals and a 10 min. main)

We will run other classes if there's 4 people who want to (enough to cover marshalling)

** 1/12 spec rules**
Spec 1/12 tires (pre-trued at NORCAR)
blinky ESC
Spec battery (A-Spec 6.0)
21.5 S.P. locked motor

Here's a quote from Goetz on what he is planning....

"It's early yet... However, I'm still formulating some incentives.

It's been little secret over the years that, at The Gate, we've always been fond of practice. So much so, that TQ'ing practice was often the pinnacle of our weekend (and for some of us, our R/C careers). I might have to engineer a little late night 'KOP Challenge' for all the guys registered for the largest class (provided it exceeds that 40 car threshold I'm seeking). I'm having visions ... of hot laps on an open track ... with everyone else looking on as they wait their turn. Oh .. the possibilities (for harassment)!

We'll see how it shakes out. I know it's going late to begin with, but I'm thinking less than an hour or so .. of complete nonsense! So, go find that 84-tooth pinion .. and put it in your pit bag NOW! I'll bring the fire extinguisher."

I just received word that CRC's "A" team driver "Dumper" will be running 6 of the 7 classes!

AND....

Will be throwing down the gauntlet for Chicky, for some type of "special" TC run on Saturday night!!

Maybe we could get the 1980 NORCAR Modified champion Steve Radecky out to run 17.5 1/12...

He has not lost yet running 17.5!!!

Hot lap info from HT Goetz and Tortichichi:

Well, yeah!

Tentative format:


Racers form a line to the stand.
1st racer gets 3 laps to post hot lap.
Upon completing the 3rd lap, the racer exits the stand and removes his/her car (or pile of parts) and weeps.
Next racer gets up on it ..

Awards provided for:


Hot lap (KOP)
Fastest 3 laps
Closest 3 laps
Best insult
Most broken parts.
The 'KOP' award obviously goes to the owner of the hottest lap, due to the overall lack of significance related to the achievement.



So far, I have verbal commitments for sponsorship from

Red Bull
Monster Energy
Cialis
and James T. Herrmann

Here are some reasons why I am coming to the Grand Finale race at the Gayte:

1 - To me, driving six hours to taste Chuck's Love Sauce, is six hours well spent.

2 - Kicking Wayne's A$$ in F1 is fun to me

3 - Racing Chicky in Stock TC, and knocking him down to size, will be worth the gas money.

4 - Regarding #3, apparently someone already has knocked Chicky down to size.

5 - I want to arm wrestle Roberto for his shiny shirt

6 - Maybe, just maybe, I can get my sausage wiped again.

7 - If Goetz is giving something away, I will be there with bated breath and an open mouth.

8 - I drive an Awesomatix. Racing at the Gayte with a shaft drive car has just endless possibilities.

9 - I am hoping to catch just the slightest wiff of Bill Sydor that may be still left in the building.

10 - I want to see Dave Morrow's pit board again.
