Topic: Odd Thursday Night Racing (old thread)
So it's official, there will be racing on odd dated Thursday evenings!
We will get the dates, times, and locations posted on the calendar ASAP!
Heat races will be 3 minutes in length. Keeping with a standard heat length will allow racers to keep statistics of their cars performance, as well as their own driving performance (if they choose to do so).
Two car classes were decided upon. Both classes will be raced each night (subject to change - dependant upon attendance).
Class 1 - Classic Sports Car. This class is open to classic and vintage sports cars. The current rules require the tire's contact patch to be .245" or less. The tire width set is that of Revell Classic cars, specifically the King Cobra and Porsche 904 *. Tires slightly wider than .245" can be narrowed to meet the rule. Examples of cars that are legal for this class are: Revell King Cobra and Porsche 904, Ninco Classics (i.e. Porsche 356, Jaguar XK120, Corvette, Jaguar "D" Type), old Revell 1/32 slot cars (i.e. Ferrari GTO & '65 Corvette), Carrera "D" Jag & '67 Corvette, Monogram Ferrari 275P, MRRC King Cobra & Porsche 904. This short list is not inclusive of all the possible cars, there are other brands that would fit this class with slight narrowing of the rear tires. A list of elligible cars will be developed as the racing progresses.
Class 2 - GT. With the exception of NSR & Racer cars, any enclosed cockpit (car must be of roofed - coupe or sedan design), and full fendered car is legal for this class. NSR & Racer cars are excluded to try to keep costs down and somewhat limit performance. However NSR parts may be used in cars of other manufacturers. Motors are limited to those developing no more than 21,500 RPM (this is based on the Slot.It orange endbell motors being the upper limit of performance - refer to the NASTE Motor List for Oregon Rally Championship)http://www.naste.org/files/Motor_List_O
