We fixed the date for the first mini-z rally ever. As it will require precision of driving vs speed, this event will be a first of the kind. Roads are made of painted concrete not more than 12in wide!!! It will be open to racers, MR01/02/015 as well as overlands as a 2nd category (no mad forces). X-mods, mini-X and all 1/24 or close will be allowed in the racers category. Each pilot will be practicing 15mn of recognition runs and settings during the morning and will perform 2 sessions of 3 timed courses + returns in the afternoon. Best time will be the winner of the speed price, best session (lowest aditional times of the best session) will be the winner of the regularity price. We hope we will record good videos which I will post in this forum. All depends of the weather. If the weather does not allow it on September 3rd, it will be deferred 1 week or 2. We also await german pilots so this will be international Any from you in the area that time?

Is it painted concrete for form or function? What's the rules on tires? Is it an open race or will there be classes based on mods?

It is made with concrete for form, or mortar to be specific. There are only 2 classes: Racers and Overland, both with standard motor/4AAA cells/standard PCB), everything else is free (alloy parts, tires, suspensions...).
Byebye do you know its only 1h flight from you? :D

That track should be total insanity. What an awesome idea.

Total insanity, and maybe more! The guy who operates the train told us we can use a portion of the hill side road that goes to a church on top of the mountain, than back the other way (he would build a platform to make a U turn). I will go and check if there is a good sight to that zone, and much important if the track is wide enough :)

where the heck do you stand when racing? seems like it'd be hard to follow your car.

We've been passing that video around the office all week....very very cool track boys!
