We will again be using a controlled practice format. The format is simple. Drivers will form two lines, one starting at Red Lane and one starting at Black Lane. Those starting on Red will use normal lane rotation (Red - Green - Blue - Purple) then leave the track after Purple and re-join the line if wanted. Those starting on Black will also follow normal rotation (Black - Yellow - Orange - White) and leave the track after White to re-join the line if needed. Please check the schedule to see how much time is allowed on each lane for the individual days. The track will automatically shut off and announce the change with a 30 second pause before power is restored. Changing lanes is MANDATORY even if other lanes are open.
 
In an effort to improve the practice sessions the lines will form for the Black Lane rotation in the "Finger" and the "Ninety" for the Red Lane rotation. Drivers will help marshall the "Finger" then move to the "Deadman" then to the "On Deck" position at the drivers panel (Black rotation). Red rotation will first marshal the "Ninety", move to the "Doughnut", then the "Lead On", before hooking up to Red Lane. Your cooperation should make this a much better practice experience.
 
The track will be cleaned and spray glued on Wednesday, March 14, and the track WILL BE CLOSED FOR RACING until Thursday morning

Since almost all GT Coupe Pro racers will be in-house already we will begin registration and motor handout at 5:00PM Thursday. NO MOTOR may leave the raceway and all motors must be returned to impound BEFORE closing at 10:00PM. GT Coupe racers are also encouraged to register and choose their motors BUT will they will not get their motors until Friday morning per the schedule. This will reduce the time spent in line Friday morning and maximize break-in time for everyone. Handing out the GT Coupe Pro motors on Thursday allows them to go directly on the track Friday morning while the GT Coupe racers work on breaking in their motors. INITIAL MOTOR PURCHASE LIMITED TO 2.

Correct. Since they are not competing together it really shouldn't matter.

Once everyone has registered and got their motors I will announce if there will be additional motors for purchase and how many you can have.

I am thinking 3 minutes in water at 5.0V. Then maybe power supply for 15 minutes. Then to the track and cry.

that would not even phase these brushes.

To mike:
Can I run my motors overnight if I provide the power supply with my motor impound box?

Any classes using .790 tire?
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. - Ronald Regan #40 (1911 - 2004)

Mike McMasters:

 

Two things...

 

- Will the race be streamed? If so can we have the link?

 

- Will parking be allowed next door as in the past?

Parking next door is OK as long as you park nearest our fence.

 

And the streaming link can be found on our website by clicking the "Live Timing" tab.
