Round 5 Rundown – Buttonwillow

This Saturday we’re headed to Buttonwillow for the first time this season, and we can’t wait! It’s not going to be like last year’s Buttonwillow events either because we’ll be running CCW 13. This isn’t a configuration that we run often (the last time was in 2015), so the results could be a toss up. It’s going to be ridiculously hot, so make sure you have shade (and weights for the shade, we don’t need canopies flying on track!), sunscreen, water, and extra fluids for your car. Here’s what the day is going to look like.

Registration – Arrive by 7:00am – Click Here to View Complete Schedule

Please arrive early for registration. 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. You will have a grand total of 3 formsEvery participant MUST have a Roadster Cup tech form turned into timing. Failure to do so may result in disqualification.

Timing

Timing is $7 and should have been purchased during registration. 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 the 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

Roadster Cup and Vtec Club will have a combined drivers’ meeting. We plan on going hot at 8:30 am, so advanced group drivers should be ready for the meeting at 7:40 am and all other drivers should be ready for the drivers meeting at 8:00am.

Roadster Cup Private Group

We will have one private gridded run group and the rest of the groups will be mixed and gridded (with the exception of Beginner group). We will try to grid the first session based on previous lap times.  

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 our season stickers available
  • Shirts and keychains will be available for purchase
  • We will be raffling swag from our sponsors during the awards ceremony

We’re really excited for this round and can’t wait to see you there!
