CARS/AMC Summer Shoot Out VI Round 3 Date Change

August 6th, 2012 by Trevor Coult

Round 3 of the Shoot Out has now been moved to Sunday 2nd September, the same date as our round of the BRCA GT10 and F1 nationals. There are several reasons for this.

1. The low number of entries for the national made it not viable to run on it’s own. Combining the two meetings makes it possible.

2. Running the Shoot Out on the bank holiday meeting meant we would lose 2 hours of running time and also have limited time for setting up.

3. In a poll of drivers at the last Shoot Out it was clear that it was the option that would gain the most drivers overall even though we would also lose some.

What you need to do.

If you race GT10 or F1 and want to run at this round of the Shoot Out you need to enter the national on the BRCA web site. All GT10 and F1 entries for the Shoot Out will be deleted.

If you race anything else and will be racing on 2nd September, enter as normal. If you have already entered you need do nothing except turn up on the correct day!

If you have entered but can’t race on 2nd September please email us at shootout.entries@carsrcracing.co.uk to cancel your entry.

Blinky only heats and finals

July 5th, 2011 by Trevor Coult

Due to the difference in speed between 10.5 blinky and modified, we are going to give racers the opportunity to run in 10.5 blinky only heats and finals for the final 2 rounds of the shoot out. As this is a change part way through the series though those that decide to do so will not be able to score points in the series.
If you wish to run in 10.5 blinky only heats and finals for the final 2 rounds email shootout.entries@carsrcracing.co.uk to inform us.
If you do not inform us we will assume you are running to the previous rules, may run whatever motor you choose, and may be put in a heat with modified motors. You will also score championship points.
