Flexi National Racing Series
 
fnrs.logo.jpg
 
This is a recently-started national slot car organization and series for 1/24 Flexi type slot cars. The "goal" is to establish a set of National rules and classes that any raceway or regional series can use if they wish, along with holding a sanctioned National Series of races at selected tracks around the US.

The use of simple and commonsense rules along with inexpensive products makes the FNRS easy to compete in at raceways around the US for racers of any skill and budget.
 
The organization wants to move Flexi racing forward in the future for all racers, raceways, and 1/24 commercial racing as a industry.

The first race under FNRS rules was recently held at SlotCars-R-Us in TN and was well-attended and well-run. Below are the scheduled races so far.
 
2017 FNRS Flexi National Race Series Schedule
 
All Races run using Full FNRS Rules for LMP, Stock Car & GTP classes.
 
June 2-3 -  Mark's Model World, Canton, OJ
August 11-12- Ho-B Max, Durham, NC
October 13-14 - Tri-State Raceway, Hamilton, OH
 
The final race location and date will be announced at a later date.
 
The FNRS rules have been posted to Slotblog's Rules Library in downloadable PDF form.

The FNRS Facebook page can be found HERE.
 
(Note: Lest anyone get the impression I am involved in the FNRS, please know that is not the case. The organization has been publicizing its activities only on Facebook and I'm trying to illustrate that is leaving a few things 'on the table', as I might term it, and that the more successful promoters take full advantage of multiple publicity channels.)

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

I don't understand why a lot of people assume everyone is on Facebook. It is a bad assumption.

Thank you, Half Fast. That is exactly correct that some of us spend little, if any, time on Facebook. "Almost never" would describe my time on Facebook.

I've been racing in the FL flexi series since 1999 when I started back racing. Just imagine the rules changes I've seen!

Any idea as to why Friday and Saturday dates only?

Friday is just a practice day, the hosting raceway has the option to run a warm-up race Friday night.

 

The three official FNRS classes race on Saturday.

OK, just most times a national race is run on a Sat/Sun schedule. Just wondered why the change.

 

Thanks,

 

Bill
