Default 19th Annual Magic City Carpet Classic information

OK...

The Magic City Classic in Billings, MT is fast approaching, don't miss out on one of the premier events in the region. Dates are Feb 27-Mar 1, 2009. Plan on more track time in those three days than you can possibly stand.

Flier is undergoing some final tweaking, etc...I hope to have it tonight. I also hope to be able to announce "official" hotel and rates tonight.

Some final decisions have been made regarding classes that will run:

We will be racing SuperStock (1/12 and TC) using ROAR 2009 rules which specify 13.5 brushless only.

We will be following ROAR 2009 guidelines re: heat length, so all 1/10 electric heats will be 6 minutes.

We will be following the lead of all major races and enforcing a 865g weight minimum in all 1/12 classes. This isn't a ROAR rule, but this is what they've declared for the Carpet Nats this year so I'm guessing it's coming.

Stock Touring Car will be a rubber tire class and Jaco Blue is the spec tire. This tire is cost-effective, performs well on carpet, and is the handout tire at pretty much all major races. Don't wait until the last minute...if you plan to race Stock sedan get some ordered up. There will not be any deviations to this spec.

Vintage TA will be offered in two flavors for this event. A full USVTA-spec class that follows all USVTA rules, specs and approvals in effect as of the date of the race as posted on their site http://www.usvintagetransam.com AND our own "Club-Spec" Vintage TA which only allows 4-cell 27T brushed power and enforces a 1525g minimum weight. Otherwise all Club-Spec rules follow USVTA.

We will run a World GT class (200mm pan cars). All rules posted at their site http://www.worldgtrc.com as of the date of the race will be enforced including approvals, etc. Power will be 4-cell 13.5 only, which is the combination being run at all major events.

So the total list of classes will be:

1/12 Stock and SuperStock

1/10 TC Stock (Rubber spec tire) and SuperStock (Foam)

Vintage TA (Club-Spec and full USVTA-Spec)

World GT

Beginner or Youth Touring Car (any stock legal motor, any rubber tires, new(er) racers only)

Any of these classes will be subject to a minimum entry of 6 cars, though I'm pretty sure we can make that in all of them.

As before...count on more track time than you can possibly handle. We will have open practice until midnight both Fri and Sat nights plus open practice 2 hours each morning before racing starts. Also, when racing is happening on one track the other will be open for practice!! Speaking of which...

BRING YOUR SLIDER SPRINTERS AND LATE MODELS...'CAUSE THE 2ND ANNUAL SHORT TRACK NATIONALS ARE ON LIKE DONKEY KONG!! Bob Stormer's awesome 24' X 50' traveling road show will make a re-appearance for some SERIOUS oval fun. You haven't lived until you've lived on the ragged edge of control with an 8.0kv brushless Slider carrying the front wheels from the apex of one turn to the shut down zone for the next. I'm foaming at the mouth just THINKING about it!!

We are going to be offering event T-shirts which may require advance sign up, at least for your first choice class. My guess is that you will be guaranteed your size choice with a pre-entry, that you'll get your size on a first come-first served basis without. Will have more information re: this over the next week or so.

Anyway, feel free to ask questions--we're here to help facilitate your entry in this 19th anniversary event in any way we can.

I think we should bail on the short track thing. Nearly no interest. the market has slowed on that. I posted a week ago that we should maybe not have it... and nobody noticed...

Sponsors aren't interested either. SOOoooooo...... That's what I'm thinking.

The track is about 5 miles west of town on Grand Avenue (JUST as it begins to turn) at the Billings Flying Mustang's Chamberlain Field.

Off-road usually starts up sometime in May.
