RACE FORMAT

Wheel to wheel racing with staggered start.

Scoring is the fastest to complete the most laps within 1 hour for stock/modified and 2 hours for unlimited, corrected time. This means if you started 30 seconds after the first vehicle, you have until 60 minutes 30 seconds after initial flag drop to complete your last lap. Only full laps will be counted to your lap total.

RACE TIMES

Registration: 8:00AM

Modified Race: 10:00AM – 11:00AM

Stock Race: 12:30PM – 1:30PM

Unlimited Race: 3:00PM – 5:00PM

Please line up in Competitor Staging Area 30 minutes before your scheduled start time – refer to map. Be prepared to parade to start area 15 minutes before your race – if you are not ready to parade to start area, you will start at the back of the field with corrected time being assessed from your original start position.

Racers will be sent out 1 at a time at equal intervals. When your car is staged at the start line watch for Eugene’s signals. Eugene will confirm the driver is ready with a thumbs up, followed by a 5 second hand countdown and arm drop – EUGENE’S ARM DROP MEANS YOU ARE LIVE TO RACE!

START ORDER

The start order is determined by your current season points standing and will be posted once registration closes. Those that have not competed this season in the TMR Customs Off Road Racing Series will start at the back of the field with positions drawn at random in the event that there is more than one new racer in your class.

TECH INSPECTION

Please find Bill McGibbon on the evening of Friday Sept 25th or the morning of Saturday Sept 26th in the Greasy Clown Motorsports campsite. You must pass tech in order to race.

*If you received a Conditional Pass (yellow tag) previously – you will need to fix the outstanding tech issue and receive a green tag in order to participate in this race.

If your conditional pass was due to a missing number plate/shark fin, you WILL be able to race without it but be aware, it is in your best interest in having a shark fin as this is the easiest number plate for lap counters to identify your vehicle – lack of number plate may result in miscount of laps.

RACE COST/WAIVERS

$150 per vehicle class entry

Race participants (drivers/co-drivers), must be at least 16 years old. Participants under the age of 18 must fill out (along with their parent/guardian) the part of the waiver (will be emailed upon registration) highlighted in green. Participants over 18 must fill out the part of waiver (will be emailed upon registration) highlighted in yellow. Failure by all participants to fill out the waiver will result in the participant NOT racing.

Please hand in exact race fees (change will NOT be available) in a sealed envelope with your names/race team/vehicle number on the envelope. Along side the envelope, please hand in loose waivers so we can confirm all participants. Fees and waivers can be handed in at the registration booth – see map for location.

If you do NOT hand in waivers or money prior to lining up for your race, you will be asked to leave the line up and be moved to the back of the line.
