Apparently my other posts i goofed something up and got them deleted, so here's another, hopefully this one will stick ;-)

Where:
● This is in southern Fuquay Varina NC which is about 20 min south of Raleigh NC.

Fellowship hall for Baptist Grove Church, next to harnett county fire department

Details:
● RCP Track - Smooth Side
● I-Laps Timing System
● Multiple Classes - will post details shortly.

I also have a private FB event page that i'm able to post a little more detail on, however i'll also try to post information here on Mini-zracer since not everyone is on FB (i'm only on there for the race for the most part). Look me up on FB if you would like that invite. Brian Swayney

Here's a link to some google docs, basically the flier and also the Race Info - Rules Specifications Logistics etc. is a good one which has info about the venue, the classes, and just general info.

https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...RF?usp=sharing

Let me know if there are any questions, i'll try to respond to PMs here as i can or you can contact me using the info int he flier located int he google docs page.

Hope to see you there!

Lodging:
For those traveling and plan to stay overnight, the closest and newest hotel that's about 9.2 miles from the race location and has plenty of eating and shopping near it is this Hampton Inn in Holly Springs NC

From their website:
Hampton Inn & Suites Holly Springs
1050 S Main Street, Holly Springs, North Carolina, 27540-8884
USA TEL: +1-919-552-7610

if there's another chain you like you can search for them in Apex or Cary NC, likely will add 10 or so miles to the distance but those would have the better hotels in them.

I was also informed that there's a Microtel (sp?) in Lillington NC that's fairly new, i can't speak to how "nice" it is or heard from anyone about it, but in case the Hampton is booked or whatever that might be another option. Lillington has some eating options and about same distance to race location as holly springs.

Hey everyone, attached is the track layout i'm leaning towards!!! bottom area is for putting car on track or stopping for adjustments or whatever, we had some plowed into last race. Flow is counter clockwise this time.

Counter clockwise huh, you may loose some people with that choice, just want to be sure that is known. There is a segment of the community that simply chooses not to run CCW.

Funny because we had people barking last race because we ran it clockwise.....no win situation honestly. And it would be easy to mirror image it and run counter clockwise, guess if anyone has harsh feeling either way please let me know, otherwise we'll just stick with counter clockwise this time.
