The much anticipated and longed for 4 hour Enduro race for Retro CanAm cars at SSME is confirmed and the details are as follows: -
Sunday; 12 November 2017 - track to open at 9am with race starting at 10am.Format
4 hours Enduro which means that teams will race over each of the 6 lanes for 40 minutes.Cars
Car Construction Rules are here: - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1254
I will be the Scrutineer assisted by Steve King.
Motors will be unmodified Cheetah 2 or Cheetah 4
Cars must be available for scrutiny by 9.45 at latest and will then be impounded until race start unless any remedial work to attain legality is required.
To qualify for entry to the race a car must be fully legal by 9.55Teams
Teams will consist of a minimum of 2 drivers with a maximum of 4 drivers.
Entry Fee per Team is $50
The maximum number of teams is 8 – any more than 6 teams will necessitate a Round-Robin format. Procedural Issues
Starting Lane and any byes will be allocated by drawing lots.
If a Round-Robin format is used any car not actually on the track will be impounded and may not be worked on.
Each team driver will drive on each of the 6 lanes for an equal amount of time i.e a 2 man team will have each driver drive each lane for approximately 20 minutes, a 3 man team for approximately 13 minutes and a 4 man team for approximately 10 minutes.
All Team Drivers must drive on each lane (i.e. no 'cherry picking' drivers for lanes.
At the lane change after each bracket there will be a 90 second interval. Cars may be worked on during this period.
Any part of a car may be changed excepting the body and the chassis - if a motor is changed it must be checked by a scrutineer (or my nominee) for legality.
Any car deemed to be damaging the track must be removed and rectified.
All teams must supply a Marshall at a designated position at all time the race is live – this means that a 2 man team will need to get assistance for the driver change-over unless the relieving driver waits for the current driver to take-over his marshaling position.
The designated marshaling spots will be allocated based on the lane being currently driven by a team.
Any Team nominations and changes to be submitted here - first in for team nominations to be accepted - as a sign of commitment I may seek the entry fees (non-refundable) way before the event to solidify the commitment.
I think that covers it but if you have any suggestions please feel free to do so and I will take them into consideration (maybe
