It’s only been a week and a half since round 2 and we’re ready to head back to Willow Springs this Saturday, May 4th, for round 3. This time we’ll be running counter-clockwise at Streets of Willow. According to the forecast, it looks like Saturday will bring warm temps with a high of 84 degrees and wind (in classic Rosamond fashion). We’re the only competition that day, so it should be a relatively smooth day (fingers crossed!). For RC veterans, you probably know the drill by now. For those of you who are newbies, here’s some key information you need to know for this weekend.
Registration – Arrive between 7:00-7:10
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 forms. Every participant MUST have a Roadster Cup tech form turned into timing. Failure to do so may result in disqualification.
Timing is $9 and should have been purchased during your online 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.
Roadster Cup and Vtec Club will have a combined drivers meeting. We plan on going hot at 9:00am, so plan for a drivers meeting at 8:15am (advanced only) and 8:30 (all other groups).
Roadster Cup Private Group
We will have one private gridded run group and the rest of the groups will be mixed between RC/Vtec Club drivers and gridded (with the exception of the Beginner group). We will try to grid the first Roadster Cup only 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.
- Each driver has until their 4th session to set their fastest time.
- We will not have a scheduled 5th session, but you may drive during an open session if you would like a 5th session
- The awards ceremony will happen during the 5th set of sessions (approximately 4:30pm)
- Wear a Star Wars shirt and receive an extra raffle ticket during the awards ceremony
- 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 glad that there was only a few weeks between rounds and to be back at track this weekend. We hope to see you there!
