Description

Essex Carpet Clash Practice Day

Held at Brentwood School Sports Centre.

The track will be laid out on carpet 30m x 16m, with jumps, bumps and corners to make for fun day of testing.  Door will open at 8am where a practice for all will take place from 8.30, before the races start.

 

Now the details….

The Christmas Team Endurance Race event will be split into 2 races which will have slightly different tyre rulings.

 

Teams

5-7 drivers, each using their own car in the team race and their own PT.

 

2WD Only

This is a 2wd only event.

 

Marshalling

One of the team members MUST be marshalling at all times.  Failure will end in a penalty.

 

Pit Crew

You can only have 2 team members as a pit crew in the “pit area” (in the rostrum area) to carry out tyre changes and car swap.

Only your driving team are allowed to be pit men, no additional help, eg, marshalling/tyre men, runners from others not racing.

 

Driver Change Over

Only 1 team member can be on the rostrum at any time. No queuing up behind your team mate for the change over. The driver coming off MUST be off the rostrum before the next team member is to enter.

No one can have more than 1 outing more than the rest of the team.  You are a team, and all are included.

One way on and off the rostrum and around the edge of the track.  This is so the whole day flows easier.  In the moment, there may be people rushing about, so at least if everyone is moving in the same direction, accidents should be to a minimum.

 

 

Stint Duration

In todays world of high capacity lipos it could be possible to be out for 10-15mins. But as most racers now use LCG batteries, and we don’t want people buying specialist equipment for this one race, we are putting a time cap on the length of stint a driver can be circulating for. 7mins is the maximum time a single team member can be out for, they must come before the time is up. This is not only a rule we are implementing to stop the keen spending more money, but it is to prevent you from doing damage to your LiPo by hitting cut off and the possibility of causing a health and safety issue with LiPo fires. This rule is in place for both races and must be adhered to. On the day we will explain how you will know when your stint is over…

 

Broken car

If you break on track you must wait for the marshal to return the car to the pit area. We don’t want anyone running out on track to retrieve their team member’s car.
(***TBC – You cannot just send another team member out at this point and must work as a team to repair the broken car that must return to track to complete their stint.
Or other rule option – only once you and your broken car have come back to the “pit area” can the next driver start to enter the rostrum for their driving stint***)

Lapping

Although this is a race, there will be no call through for lead cars. You must be patient and pass when the opportunity presents itself and work with each other on track to let the fast car through. Pit Crew can communicate with their driver on rostrum to let them know if they are racing with a car for position.

 

Race 1 – TheSprint Race

The Sprint race has a 2hr time cap to do as many laps as you possibly can. The catch will be within your team you have to use 1 set of rears between you all… that’s right… 1 set of blue cactus rears which means your pit crew will have to be on their A game to keep the time loss to a minimum. Fronts are open and you can use as many or as few as you would like.

*Tyre scrutinising/marking will take place before the race*

 

Race 2 – The 4hr Super Race

The Super has a 4hr time cap, again to do as many laps as possible. Each team member is allowed to use 1 set of yellow cactus rears only. Once again the front tyre option is open and you can use as many as you wish. Towards the end of the 4hrs is when things will get interesting as tyres start to go off and the cars balance changes.

*Tyre scrutinising/marking will take place before the race*

 

 

*rules may be amended at any time where necessary*

 

This meeting can only go ahead subject to minimum number of participating teams. Team bookings will close 30th Nov, where we will review entries and confirm if the team endurance meeting will proceed, or another “more traditional” race format will go ahead in its place…

 

 

Run to BRCA general rules.
