September 15, 2012

December 8, 2012



This race will be the first in a series of 3 held at the adams track. points and prizes will be awarded, and champions will be crowned after the 3rd race.

points will be given out after each race.

1 point for a first place finish, 2 points for 2nd, 3 for 3rd, etc...

after the series is over, points will be tallied and numbers will be issued accordingly. (lower point number, lower number plate.)

i know everyone has their favorite number, or the number they've been running since the death races, but we're progressing now. gotta make it official.

you can keep the numbers you've been running for the rest of the year, but be prepared to spend 50cents for some new ones next year.:)

new riders will be issued a number starting with 200.

classes

there will be 4 classes at this race;

1: beginners, slow bikes, people who just want to cruise.

2. 2 stroke china class
all 2 stroke chinese bikes. other comparable bikes will be let in, on a case by case scenario.

3. midrange class
morini's, 4 strokes, and other bikes under 10hp.

4. super bike class.
anything over 10hp

you should know where you belong. if you don't, we'll figure it out. if you're running away from everyone else, you're probably in the wrong class.

Race Set-up

my goal is to have 15 racers per heat, with no more than 20 in case of a low turn-out.

any class with more than 20 riders (+/- 1 or 2) will have 2 qualifying heats, with the top 10 from each heat qualifying for the main event. in case of a large turn-out, semi-final heats will be held.

qualifying heats:

2 eight lap heats.

top 5 in any heat will automatically qualify you for the main event. if you place in the first heat, you may choose to sit the next heat out.

all other riders will have their 1 and 2 heat placings averaged out to determine if you're in the final.

for example, you place 6th in heat one, but crash in heat 2 and get 15th. your buddy gets 10th in both heats. he'll advance, you may not.

although these are meant to be fun events, it is still a race. this prevents people from coasting around the track, saving everything for the finals. it's a more competitive way than just having some random heats, then a final with everyone advancing.

if i wanted to do it that way, i wouldn't have heats at all, just 6 hours of practice leading up to 1 final race. and that's not racing, that's just riding around a track all day.

this also encourages people to build reliable bikes that can take the punishment of a full day of racing. hopefully, eventually, we can figure out how to make a china girl last for more than a few laps of racing without spilling her guts...:) it's something this industry really needs.

there will be plenty of practice time, open track time, and time to cruise or have a grudge match with your buddies.

Spectator's are free, but absolutely NO pit access. (track rules, not mine) there are bleachers and other free spectator areas, but the real action is in the pits and on the track.

classes are going to be simple.

beginner/cruiser class: this is for people who've never raced, or aren't that competitive, and just want to ride around.

china 2 stroke: all china 2 strokes, stock, modded, whatever. this class will also include any motor that's comparable in speed and power.

this is based on an honor system. you know what you're riding. if you're obviously much faster than the fastest china, you'll be bumped up a class.

mid class. most morini's, fast electrics, 4strokes, etc.

unlimited class: everything else.

depending on turn out, rider input, or on a whim, i might add a class.

all safety requirements listed for my march race are still in effect. i'll copy and paste those later

whatever number you had in tucson, the grange, etc will stay the same till the end of the year.

if you're coming, please let me know. honestly, if no ones gonna show, i'm not gonna bother renting a track for myself...

My Whizzer is in pieces right now (I need to get some welding done) and the money is low so I’m slow. Throttling up on a track would be a dream come true for me so I’m going to try real hard to make it. I just don’t want to make any promises I can’t keep. Riverside is a bit closer to me than Grange. I think it’s pretty cool that you rented that track for all of us to have a blast. Thank you. You are spurring me on to get the bike together. That is a good thing. I need to be pushed sometime or I just try to dream it together.
