Fastlane is hosting the ROAR Region 8 Offroad Championships for 8th scale nitro and electric buggy and truggy as well as 10th scale 4WD Short Course Trucks on August 23rd, 24th and 25th.
For ROAR Championships, all cars of a given type (example; nitro 8th scale buggy) typically run in a single class without being split into groups like Sportsman, Expert, etc. To provide recognition to driver’s of various skill levels, Fastlane will be awarding trophies to the top 5 finishers in each Main. So even if you can’t make the A Main against the top competition you’ll have a chance to race for trophies against other racers who’ve qualified at a similar speed. We will seed the initial qualifying heats based on practice times and resort after the 2nd round of qualifying.
We’ve kept entry fees low for this 3 day event to encourage participation and partly offset the cost of ROAR membership which is required for this event. Weekend and annual memberships will be available at the track. ROAR vehicle rules and safety rules will apply during the weekend.
The event is available for signup now at http://events.rcsignup.com/events/di…nt.cfm?ID=3422
