2017 Season Opener Rundown!

Hey Racers,

Round 1 kicks off this Saturday, March 11th at Streets of Willow. We’re excited to see a strong turnout from Roadster Cup veterans as well as looking forward to meeting new friends and competitors on the track! Here’s what you need to know about the event this Saturday.

RC SOW 8-14-16 (80)

Registration – Arrive between 7:00-7:30am

Touda and I will be there there early and we will have our own registration line. Before coming to register with me, you must have a Driver Waiver and general tech form filled out. We will have Roadster Cup tech forms available, but I recommend printing one (download and print here) ahead of time and bringing it with you. So you will have a grand total of 3 forms. Every participant MUST have a Roadster Cup tech form turned into timing. Failure to do so may result in disqualification. 

Timing

Timing is free and included in your track day. Timing will only have one line for all drivers (so it could be a long wait!). I recommend heading straight to the timing line after registration. You will turn in your Roadster Cup Tech form to Timing. Before going to timing, make sure you have your tech form filled out with the appropriate class so Bryan (our timing guy) can input your information. You must trade an ID or Credit Card as collateral to receive timing. Even if you rent a helmet and leave your ID for that, you still have to leave a second form of ID or a Credit Card with timing. Your ID will be returned to you once you’ve returned your transponder. If two people are sharing a car, each driver must have their own transponder and run only one transponder on the car at a time in correspondence with the driver. Failure to do so may result in disqualification. 

Drivers’ Meeting – We will have our own drivers’ meeting at 8:00am

The Roadster Cup run group will have a separate drivers’ meeting at the same time as the general drivers’ meeting. We will go over gridding, flags, passing, and Roadster Cup procedures.

Roadster Cup Private Group 

We will have a private gridded run group. We will try to grid the first session based on previous lap times. Times will only count from one run group if you are running in multiple groups, and you must tell me at the beginning of the day. Failure to do so may result in disqualification.  

The Roadster Cup group will grid when they announce the session beforehand. We will try to make as many announcements as possible to make sure that you do not miss the call to grid. Any additional time used to grid will cut into your driving time.  BE ON TIME TO GRID! Failure to be on time to grid may result in losing your grid spot, and you will be sent out at the back of the group. 

Additional Information

  • Each driver has until their 4th session to set their fastest time.
  • We will have Roadster Cup season stickers available.
  • Awards will be immediately following the last Blue session.
  • We will take a group photo after the awards.
  • Track Map

We’re interested to hear about what preparations you all are making during the last days before the first round. Let us know on our Facebook page! We are also looking for drivers who might be interested in participating in our Driver Spotlight to be posted on our blog. We’re hoping to get at least one post per round, so let us know if you are interested.

If you’re new to the series, more information about the rules, classes, points and a downloadable tech form can be found here! When you get to the track come say hello and meet your fellow competitors. We’re a friendly bunch and will generally be happy to chat about the series or our cars.

As always good luck and have fun; looking forward a great season for 2017!

-Jon
