2011 Race Season

The 2011 AZGT, ATM, F1, and OCD seasons begin this Saturday the 11th.

The 2011 sporting regulations are all updated and available at http://www.mini-az.com/downloads.html
Very little has changed. New/changed regs are highlighted in yellow, removed regs have strike-through.

General Regs: Mostly just added a Red Flag rule to handle situations where the track becomes un-drivable (like a rail popping out into the track) or the timing loop gets knocked over.
AZGT: Minimum weight is 175g to match the PNWC rule.
ATM: "Lead a Lap" bonus is scored in all Heats if multiple Heats are run.
F1: New points scale to match the real F1 2010 season.
OCD: "Lead a Lap" bonus is scored in all Heats if multiple Heats are run.

There's been a last minute change in the track we will be running. Joe has decided to update the Esses for a later date and requested we run Oschersleben in its place for the season opener. This is a real-world track in Germany. (The guy on Speed pronounced it Os-er-shlay-ben)



This is a big one. How big is it? The F1 race will be only 96 laps. The huge Indianapolis layout was 150.9ft, Oschersleben is 219.0ft. That makes it the second largest track we've ever run, YBslow Circuit being the longest at 286.6ft.

See ya' all this Saturday (11th). And remember this is a back-to-back month with the OLPS on the following Saturday the 18th.

The results from 2011 opening day are posted on the club site:
http://www.mini-az.com/archiveazgt11.html

Oschersleben was a huge track, very fun. I think we found the practical limit for Mini-Z visibility without resorting to standing on 8ft ladders.

Below are pictures from the day during track setup and open practice. Enjoy.

Track assembly

Practice session for the AZGT (stock GT class) ----------
Paul does a 4-wheel slide through the Mibau Esses


Racing around Hotel Kurve


Brad overtakes Hood right out to the wall on the fast back straight


Paul ripping down the wide front straight


The Track Farm ----------
The piles-o-track during tear down at the end of the day




Panorama of our Track Trailer ----------
This is how we get the bulk of our track to the venue. Hood and Joe constructed this clever storage arrangement to keep our track flat and organized. The boxes have our OLPS sets (we needed a lot of track for Oschersleben), and we have even more stored at other locations!

Looks like you guys now have it down to a system on storing and transporting the track.

That wraps up 2011 for Mini-AZ. It was a great year of races and special events. The final race of 2011 for our local series was run on the giant, hammer-down Indianapolis circuit. Final series standings can be found here:
http://www.mini-az.com/archiveazgt11.html#Week_9
Congratulations to our winners:
AZGT: 1st Brad, 2nd Hood, 3rd Dusty
ATM: 1st Dusty, 2nd Joe, 3rd Wes
Formula Mini: 1st Hood, 2nd Dusty, 3rd Joe
OCD: 1st Brad, 2nd Hood, 3rd Dusty

This was the last season for our AWD-only series, the ATM. Beginning in 2012 we will be running the Don Jackson Enterprises Porsche Cup, our new Porsche spec series.

See you all in 2012!
