Weeknight racing is 2 qualifiers and a main. Weekends are 3 qualifiers and a main. Qualifiers are 7 minutes, mains are 10 minutes long.

For lap counting, we are running the new Robitronics system. Personal transponders will be avail for anyone who wants to buy them for $30-35 each. These are small enough to use for Mini-Z's! Here's a pic next to a Micro-T:


Also there will be on-site wi-fi for those who wish to bring their laptops.

We also have a vinyl cutter on site for custom decals.

Here's the building layout:

Has anyone been running the mini Z class at your track since it's opening? I dont have any tracks near by that run anything under 1/18th scale, and I really would like to try some racing...I've considered taking the drive to this place over christmas break, I'm just worrried there won't be enough guys to race.

I'm shooting for an RCP track around christmas time in my basement...but that still wont be enough. I would like to make it out to track every once in while.
