FRIDAY RACE SCHEDULE

SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER, NOVEMBER, 2018

1/32 SCALE

 

The routed 1/32 track returns for its FIFTH season, This 60 foot lane length four lane layout returns as modified last year.  Straightening out some of the lanes in the esses really worked out well making lap times more competitive.

 

Last season’s attempt at handicap racing did not go well, so we are not doing that again this year.  Instead I will try to schedule more IROC races, where you, the racers, will supply 4-6 cars and we will run the race as an IROC class.

 

September 14 – Carrera/Slot.it DTM This will be our recurring race this year.

Super Stock Slot.it DTM or Carrera DTM NO MAGNET – Allowed are Slot.it DTM cars (Alfa 156 or Opel Calibra) or Carrera Mercedes, BMW or other DTM with traction magnet removed (weight may be added), and silicone rear tires. No other mods allowed. Since this is a last minute change, Kevin ‘Dr Evil’ Price will also be bringing a set of Group C IROC cars so everyone who shows up can race.  

September 21– Scalextric Box stock – In the past this was the High Impact class, however, since one of the reasons for this class was the lower price of High Impact cars to encourage more racers to try 1/32 and since Scalextric has lowered the price on its regular cars to $39.99 we will now allow any BOX STOCK one magnet Scalextric car in this race.  (Non open wheel) Silicones?

September 28 – Sideways Group 5 NO MAGNET – This class was new for last year and proved to be tons of fun! Allowed is any Group 5 car from Sideways (Porsche 935, Lancia Beta, Ford Capri or Mustang, BMW 320CSi, etc.).
