Default 2014 10 Hours at the 'PLEX Enduro!! - January 25th

The 10th Annual HobbyPLEX Enduro is going to be EPIC!!! 10 HOURS!!!

We will once again run just two classes, Trans Am & Open. There will be a "NIGHT" portion of the race again with the lights over the track being off for approximately three hours.

When? Saturday January 25th

Entry? $50/Team

Format?
-Up to four drivers per team (one driving, one marshaling and two in the pits)
-One chassis
-10 Hours of non-stop racing!!!

Schedule?
-Open practice & pit setup Friday January 24th from 6PM until 10PM
-Doors open @ 6AM Saturday January 25th
-Practice until 8:15AM
-Drivers meeting @ 8:20AM
-Race begins @ 9AM
-Pizza will be brought in between NOON & 1PM
-Race ends @ 6PM
-Awards & Pics @ 7:20PM

Classes?
Trans Am Spec
-USVTA Rules apply
-5.0 FDR limit

Open
-Any 1/12th or 1/10th electric chassis
-Any ROAR 3.7v or 7.4v battery
-Any ROAR B/L motor


General rules
-Teams can be either three or four drivers, one driving, one marshaling and one or two in the pits
-All teams must have a marshal on the track at all times
-No more than two team members in the pit lane during pit stops
-All driver changes must be made while the car is in pit lane
-No extra cutouts in the body to aid in pit stops
-No part of the chassis can extend outside the body, including the bumper
-No powered tools may be used in the pit lane
-All team members must run at least one hour on the track

I am going to put in one interesting twist. If any team would like to run both classes, you will be allowed up to six team members and the entry fee will be $75 for both cars!! Minimum one hour track time for each team member will apply to both cars and the team must supply one marshal on the track for each car.

Any questions or clarifications, LMK

You can find all our previous enduro results HERE

Start getting your teams together and let's have great time!!!

I would really like to come back and do this even again someday. It was a lot of fun.

Good luck to all those who are racing. Get your ice packs ready for your shoulders :-)

OK guys, not seeing anything happening here?? Too long?? Too much??

So, we're going to reduce the entry to $10/person on each team and shorten the race, probably 6 hours. My Trans Am car is still available, just needs drivers and batteries. Also have a backup Open Chassis, needs complete electronics.

Let me know ASAP if we can get something going.
