John,

Have the dates been updated? It seems like the website still has a lot of 2009 information on it..

The dates of March 20th and 21st of 2010 are correct. RCX usually keeps information on the previous year up on the site until we get closer to the show. I should have updated information on the 2010 show such as exhibitors, floor layouts and other demo events, shortly. I will post all the information in this thread.

Thanks,
John

Current discussions on this years event are focusing around a possible endurance race. Possibly 4 ~ 5 hours, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. Each team would consist of 3 drivers. Each day race would be separate as drivers only need to compete on one day or can choose to run both days if available. This will give some drivers the ability to come down either on Sat or Sun, depending on their work or family schedules.

I think the endurance race would be fun and it has it's advantages. Drivers could spend the morning and late afternoon practicing on the track or walking around the event and visiting all the other attractions. The endurance race gives the spectators something to watch for a longer portion of time throughout the day.

Looking for your thoughts on holding the endurance races rather than a standard heat/multiple class program? If you think you would be interested on making it down for the event to participate, let me know via this thread.

Thanks,
John

John,

This is a great idea! With the two years that I have gone to RCX, I was never able to walk around and see what's RCX really is. Most of the drivers are focus on the race... Having to choose one day out of two is perfect. This way we get to see what RCX is all about. I just hope that we can get the entry fee for free on both days ;) just like in '08 and last year.

I will be there again this year and will bring a team for the endurance race. Should be fun!

Thanks,

Thanks for the input. Yes, we will take care of the entry fee for both days of the show for all drivers who participate in either day or both day races.

We are looking for additional sponsors who would like to donate some of their products to give a way as prizes for the participants. If anyone is interested, please contact me by PM.

We are working on the details. I will post via this thread, shortly. Any person and team can enter, but we will be limited to a specific number of drivers/teams per day. There is usually a small entry fee which helps pay for some of the trophies, prizes, etc.

Currently, we have 3 teams (9 drivers-sportsman/expert) that are ready to go for this 5 hours endurance race. Just let us know when we can start signing up. :) Meanwhile, we'll try to grab more. RCX/RCP race is FUN!

wish I could make it this year, but I'll be on a Cruise in the Caribean on these dates, is that a :mad: or a :D... I don't really know :eek:

For those that are thinking of attending this event, I have been to it the last 2 years, and it has always been fun, and I've always learned alot for the other racers that have helped me out in setting up a car.

I like the idea of the team endurance race. We just ran our endurance races last night. 1 hour of Racer and 1 hour of F1.

John and Philip, always put on a great event and it's absolutely worth making the trip if you can.

Ball is rolling.

The track will be brand new RCP. The track will be vacuumed several times before each race. We will sell the track after the show at a great price and discount to anyone local that would like to take the complete track or pieces of it home.

We are currently working to secure additional sponsors. If anyone would like to participate as a sponsor, send me a PM. In exchange for your donation, you will receive banner space at the track as well as the opportunity to market your company/club/shop to the visitors at the show.

I will post up more information very shortly.

It is confirmed by Philip that the Endurance Race will be an official Reflex Racing Endurance event, so all rules from it will be applicable.

We are still trying to decide if the GTP Category will be Le-Mans Only. I will have to iron this out with Joe Chen. Joe will be the organizer as I will be out of the country that weekend.

So mark down your calendar and start building your teams, there will probably be an 8-10 team maximum.

So the winners on Saturday's endurance will receive their trophies the next day?

"confirmed by Phillip" I'm guessing PN Regional on Sunday? :)

I don't think this would be the case, these are going to be 2 mutually exclusive events, trophy presentation should be after the race....

I see.. I'm not familiar about the rules/classes on both days. I will look into it. Perhaps when everything is settled, someone can post the link for PNWC rules and RR enduro rules on here. Just to make it easy for others to see.

Oh it's on!

I'll be hosting and organizing the 5 hour endurance race on Saturday! And yes, ANNOUNCING. For anyone that remembers, the commentary will be something between a soccer game and a gentleman's club!

For those that have never run an endurance race, it is ridiculous amounts of fun. The teamwork aspect is the most addictive part of the race! Nerve-wracking when you're driving (can't let your team down), and you're not behind the wheel (fumbling pit stops, trusting your teammates, etc). The race follows a randomized "script" including rain, safety cars, and maybe a few curveballs to pack the field back together. If you're worried about your equipment, trust me these little Mini-Z's can take it!

Sign up now, so we can be sure to have enough gear like the handout rain tires for you, and get ready to take home trophies for class and overall wins!

I'll also be racing and announcing on Sunday when I can. This is going to be a great weekend!

Hi John,

Today I was told by one of the drivers that will be racing PN/RCX this Sunday that if there's not enough sign ups for Reflex Racing's Endurance race on Saturday, we can use this day for practice or to set up our cars for Sunday. Is this true?

Thanks!
