GENERAL NOTES
R/C vehicles outside of these official race classes will not be turned away; everyone gets a
chance to race in this club. All other 1/10 scale (or smaller) vehicles will be placed in the Sportsman class. Heats may be split to run similar vehicles together depending on entries.
To earn points, a minimum of 3 vehicles must be registered at each race to complete a class. If only 1 or 2 vehicles are registered for a class, they may run with another class or the Sportsman class.
We of course want everyone in attendance to participate and will make every effort to find a way for every R/C vehicle to be raced.
