looks like a real serious set up... what were lap times like? just wondering how much it cost to rent the place, how long it takes to set up and tear down... and other details i.e. lap counting systems, how many racers involved, entry fees etc...

thanks for any reply...

Thanks DMX, I'm glad you guys enjoyed it. I really like running these real-world circuits. (Pictures?)

Herman- We are very fortunate that the community center donates the space to us. There are no entry fees, we've managed to kept racing free at Mini-AZ all these years.

Oschersleben took longer than usual to setup, it was about 45min. We usually have it ready in about 30min depending on the track.

We've been using Giro-Z for a couple years now and its great! Reliable, small, light, and negligible power drain.

Timing and scoring for the Oschersleben race can be found at our club site:
http://www.mini-az.com/archiveazgt11.html

Fastest laps were:
AZGT (stock GT): Brad 14.049
ATM (mod AWD): Joe 15.192
F1 (stock F1): Wes 14.545
OCD (open class): Brad 13.758

thanks for the info...

man you guys are lucky... so how long does the center let you have the space for? 8 hours or so? basically what i'm asking is, on the average how many hours do you get to use the space? i.e. what time do you start setting up, and what time is everything packed up and ready to leave...

thanks again...

One of our drivers is an employee there so its not really a set limit. We only use it once per month in the winter and twice per month in the summer (the other winter location is DJ's Porsche shop, another driver).

Our usual time is 9am-5pm, but it sometimes runs late when there are technical problems. We try not to let anyone miss out from car trouble, but it can make the days a bit long.

In the past we've had to rent space. Most places want $200-$500 for about 6hrs, but a very few will lower that to $50 to help out a club. A Police lodge and an American Legion Hall have helped us out in the past.

Other times we were able to use a community room at a driver's apartment complex. The community center is the biggest room we've had and has greatly opened up the possibilities for RCP layouts.

Two More Tracks

Here are two more real-world tracks, Snetterton Circuit in the UK and the famous Fuji Speedway in Japan. I also updated the Monza layout pictured earlier in the thread with a wider Tribune straight that ran much better in a crowded field.

We ran Snetterton recently and it was fantastic! The fastest lap time was Brad with a 12.735 in our open class series (the OCD). You can find times for all classes here on our series page:
http://www.mini-az.com/archiveazgt11.html#Week_8

I was going to keep the designs all together but apparently I can only show ten images in a post. So you can see the new two here, and the others in the previous post here:
http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showpo...4&postcount=77

As always you can find the full track library here: http://s140.photobucket.com/albums/r...cks/?start=all
And the printer-friendly map versions here: http://s140.photobucket.com/albums/r...aps/?start=all

Enjoy.

Go Fast, Turn Left

This year Mini-AZ began a new annual special event- oval racing. We ran the small Martinsville track and had an absolute blast! An oval seems pretty simple, but as proper NASCAR fans know: It's not about turning left, it's about not turning right. And by the end of the day the right side of the track was a snow drift of RCP dust and marbles. Absolute. Blast.

So in preparation for the coming years, and for fun, I've put together designs for some of NASCAR's most iconic tracks.

As always you can find the full track library of road courses and ovals here: http://s140.photobucket.com/albums/r...cks/?start=all
And the printer-friendly map versions here: http://s140.photobucket.com/albums/r...aps/?start=all

If you run one of these, please post pictures and let us all know how you did.

Enjoy.
