    Prototype & Sportscar

    1/32 Challenge

    (1966-1971)

    FORMAT (As announced in the registration thread):

    Participant – pilot/racer/driver/team

    Entry – model/car/slot car

    # – number chip

    With 6 Participants the Fourth (Blue) Lane will be turned off for the entire event.

    Timed Practice (9:15-10:15am):

    Participants may practice with any eligible Entry from 9:15am (or as soon as the track is determined to be ready) until 10:15am. At 10:15am the track will be turned off and no Entry may practice after that time.

    Qualifying (10:30am or as soon thereafter as possible):

    Following practice at 10:15am there will be a team Random # Chip Draw: Participants pick a numbered chip for each Entry (up to 3 maximum) to determine qualifying order of each Entry (for 6 Participants there may be up to 18 Entries);

    Qualifying Order: Ascending from #1 THEN  #2 followed by #1 (Participants qualify every Entry) (ie. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 2, 1). #1 and #2 get a second chance to improve their avg. lap time;

    Qualifying: Commencing at 10:30am or as soon thereafter all Entries will each qualify over several hot laps and that Entries’ average lap time determines that Entries’ qualifying position. Marshals will be present. The number of hot laps is dependent on the number of Entries and will be determined immediately prior to qualifying;

    For Participants with more than one Entry, the Participant may choose any Entry to advance to the race and every chosen Entry will be seeded based on their individual qualifying position.

    Provided that a Participant is registered to race if that Participant arrives late and misses their team qualifying chip draw(s) they may still present an Entry to race but that Entry will be seeded last.

    Pre-Race:

    All Entries that participate in qualifying will remain impounded in the designated pit area thereafter until the race is over.

    Throughout the event no tools, substances or liquids are permitted near the Entries, the track or the driver’s stations. At any time Pilots may use fingers to straighten braid and/or rub tires if they wish. Loose body screws may be tightened and/or tape may be applied to prevent body screws from backing out and damaging the track with permission of the race director.

    Race (11:15am or as soon thereafter as possible):

    Seeding for the first rotation is based on qualifying result:

    1st Rotation [3 min x 3 x 1 = 9 min] (Q6, Q4, Q2, Q1, Q3, Q5);

    2nd Rotation [3 min x 3 x 1 = 9 min] (P6, P4, P2, P1, P3, P5);

    3rd Rotation [3 min x 3 x 1 = 9 min] (P5, P6, P4, P2, P1, P3);

    B Main [5 min x 3 x 1 = 15 min] (P6, P5, P4) (determines 6th, 5th, 4th Place);

    A Main [5 min x 3 x 1 = 15 min] (P3, P2, P1) (determines 3rd, 2nd, 1st Place).

    I would like to say a sincere thank you to all five of my driving instructors! I owe Michael a huge apology for totally wiping him off the track in one… or two of the curves. The entire room went “Whoa!” at one point. Oops. Be aware of the other cars. Got it. I owe Michael a coffee.

    I have to admit that I have not raced like this since I was young (40+years ago). Even then, it was never as cool as this!

    My Scalex track is barely 8-weeks old, and barely 30-minutes of total use. I’m just getting started and have more time on MVL track than on my own.

    Thank you very kindly for the invitation. I hope to be back if I can eventually find a Hudy tire truer that isn’t a million USD.
