Six lane at debut MASCAR races! - 09/02/09 02:59 PM

Saturday, September 26th, is round 1 of the MASCAR Championship for 2009-2010 season. Race will be held on Dan Mueller's six land Tom Clark routed speedway, located in Chesapeake Virginia.

The class is BeachJet, and Fray/VHORS cars are legal. Full BeachJet specs:

Track opens for practice at 8am, with tech at 11am. Race fee is $5, food is provided for an additional $5.

Some of the track features are described below:
- The high-bank is certainly a great feature and supports going at full throttle all the way around...except for maybe the black lane (inner gutter lane)...depends on how good your car handles. Just remember, if you wipe out on the 60degree bank, you could take out quite a few fellow drivers just the same as they will be at full throttle there.
- Then there is the Hairpin leading into the "Square" turn. Depending on which gutter, your biggest challenge lies in that string of turns making it the most difficult section on the track.
- Then there is the "juke" down the third straightaway...ALL 6 lanes shift to the right about 2.5 inches very abruptly. Watch for it or you will be eating the lexan barrier over and over...
- Of course, how much excitement would there be without "S" turns... There is the 8' of "S" turns...also known as the "Serpent" to a few. Only the best handling cars will be able to gain on the lead in the "S" turns. This will be where car balance and handling there will win the day.

It all makes for fantastic driving experience and thrilling ride to be sure.

The lanes are separated by enough space that there will be little rubbing even on turns unless your good at drifting through the turns. All in all it is a fine track and I am proud to present it to the club as a racing event venue for the 2009-2010 MASCAR SERIES.

You really should change your Top Plate gear rules to read any 24T Idler drive and 14T arm gear. Stock or Stock replacement technically by that wording disqualifies RT's gears due to having a different pressure angle than stock..

Just and FYI

RT is considered a stock replacement gear set, as is the verious Wizzard replacement gears. We do have an issue with the crown gear wording, that we are discussing on the mascar bbs...come on down on the 26th RC...This is going to be a great start to our season! ...TOM

I would Tom but unfortunately I have a wedding that I am in, in Colunbus OH for one of my best friends from college. I will make it to a race down there this year, just not sure which one.
