Default Mtotdome early spring race

Posted by Sean VanDalen on another forum.


I talked with Dale and will be building the track on Sunday the 25th. I am looking for volunteers to help with the track build. For those of you who remeber the Oval track banking that is usually in the dome, Dale no longer races oval in there. A good thing for those who are building the track as that huge amount of dirt will not need to be moved!

Friday March 30---Practice start time will be posted soon
Sat March 31-April 1st---Racing-Mains

This race program will be based off of the MN Offroad Series.

Classes and race order;

4wd Sct
1/8 Electric Buggy
Open 2wd Sct
Electric Sportsman
1/10 Open 2wd (Buggy, Truck, Dunebuggy and Nitro truck)
1/8 Arena Truck
Sportsman Nitro
Mod 4 (1/10 buggy tire size)
1/8 Buggy

3 qualifiers and Electric sportsman and Sct Mains Saturday, all other Mains Sunday.

Entry, Gate and Camping Fees;

25 First Nitro class, 20 for each additional
20 First Electric class, 20 for each additional
5 gate fee
15 camping fee

Physical address: 41279 County Road 7, Browerville, MN 56438

Here is a video from last springs practice in there http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4BLqG_QqGs

Count at least 2 from Winnipeg in. Moxley mentioned something about "never being not impressed with the layout at the dome" and that really got my attention. I've seen some of the tracks he's raced on, and have run at CRE Raceway last year....if the dome impresses him, I should be in for a good time!
Curious about that hotel....any discounts for racers?

Tell that you are there for a race at the Motodome and maybe they will, it is the the hotel Dale recommends off of the Dome website.

Thanks, they got me taken care of. Now I can pick up enough Timmies to keep me sufficiently caffinated on the drive there and back.

Wait....you guys don't have Tim Horton's coffee down there?

Oh no.... ;D

Awe, c'mon...you guys aren't afraid of a little competition from the great white north are you?

Seriously though, very much looking forward to meeting some new people and racing at what I'm told is a top notch track. (Nick told me, confidentially of course, that by seeing what goes on at the Motodome, I'll get an idea about what he and Johnny are trying to do with CRE Raceway.... put THAT feather in your caps!)

My son, wife and I were at the CRE track last September for the R/C Pro Series Canadian Finals race and it was a great layout and unbelievable traction. I know a few of the guys from the track from over the years of racing..

I was there too! 3rd in the B main 4x4 SC and 5th in the 2wd A main at that race. Loving what CRE are doing here, and looking forward to being a constant traveller with Nick, so I think I'll be hitting the Motodome on a regular basis!
