R32 LXXV @ Nova Ridge

Saturday, September 9, 2023 @ Nova Ridge

(9am – 2pm)

R32 kicks off the fall schedule at Nova Ridge Motorsports Park with several of your R32 favourites including 1950’s Grand Prix, Classic Stock Car, Trans Am Plus, Unlimited Open, Classic LeMans and 1960’s Endurance Sportscar. A little bit of everything – low power motors to anything goes – open wheel to wide flared fenders – makes from both hemispheres – plain and simple to sold out in your face liveries!

Notice that we’ve added a sixth class (or race) and we’re changing our routine so that we go from slow to fast and then back to slow. The math says that we can easily accommodate a sixth class (for up to 7 racers) without reducing the lengths of our heats and still have 15 minutes in between classes. But not everyone will want to race all 6 classes for any number of reasons – whether to pace yourself by sitting out a few races or you don’t have a car ready yet or you might have to leave early or you just want to watch/marshal the action first – it doesn’t matter. There will be no cap on total attendees either. This should be a win/win for everyone. As always, time will tell.

This race day is open to current Scratch32 members only. Advance registration is not required – simply show up with models for the classes listed below.


  • 1950’s Grand Prix (50GP)
  • Classic Stock Car (CSC)
  • Trans Am Plus (TA+)
  • Unlimited Open (U)
  • Classic LeMans (CLM)
  • 1960’s Endurance Sportscar (60SP)

  • Doors Open @ 9am – Timed Practice
  • Green Flag @ 9:30am
  • Classes will be raced in the order listed above
  • Checkered Flag @ 2pm


  • European rotation. Finish result will seed subsequent race rotation position
  • 3 minute heats (180 seconds) x 4 (lanes) for a total of 12 minutes per race
  • 3 marshals for every heat (if numbers permit)
  • ‘Race to line’ will determine finishing order
  • Final race scoring will be posted with reference to car number (not pilot) and accompanying photographs will include cars in finishing order


Make sure your controller is in tip top shape and that your brakes function reliably! All R32 tracks require the use of three pole positive polarity controllers. Banana plugs are highly recommended but alligator clip hookups work just as well.
