GUIDELINES

RACING GUIDELINES - VARIOUS CLASSES

These guidelines serve as a "thumbnail" sketch. Please call the raceway before you do anything "questionable" or purchase items that may not be permitted in you chosen classes. 

5.500 "Break-0ut" RACES (Hill-climb)
There are very few restrictions on the car:
  • No "Wing Car" bodies or Chassis
  • Must not be wider than 3.250" at any point
  • Must have 1/16" clearance under rear of car and gear.
The idea is to get you on the track with whatever you have! The emphasis is on running consistent lap times - not pure speed. Anyone can run a 5.500 lap on the Hill-climb with just about any car. Any race lap below 5.500 constitutes a "break-out" and is not scored.
