Run what ya brung. Remember those days? No laundry list of rules. No 13 classes of races to choose from. You showed up, you had an idea of what the other guy ran but it basically came down to the car and the driver. That is what the Nostalgia Series (trademark pending) is all about.

Show up with whatever tire, whatever adder, whatever interior. We don't care. Just don't run faster than 10.6 or 8.9. Race your way to victory with a perfectly dialed in car or gamble with a hustle. Relive those nights spent racing at the track and just having fun.

Note: IF for any reason we can't finish both classes during the rental, we can finish once the track opens to the public (free of charge). This shouldn't be necessary but we have that in our pocket if needed.

10.6 Class Information ($50 Buy-In):

24 Car Field

$2400 pot, winner take all

****RULES****
  • Standard Tree, Red Light is considered a loss.
  • If you run faster than a 10.6, you will be disqualified**
  • Breakout rule applies to the final as follows: Car that broke out the most would be disqualified.
  • Redlight comes prior to a E/T Breakout therefore the Redlight would be considered the loss.
  • Cross in front of the car in the opposing lane = instant loss
- Chips will be labeled with a number 1-12 with a letter "L" or "R" which signifies the left lane or right lane. The 10.6 Class will be in the long staging lanes and we will have cones set out with these numbers on them. You draw your chip, we mark it down, then jump in your car and head to your cone in the staging lanes.

- Drivers meeting will take place 1 hour after after test and tune begins, we are hoping that will begin by 10am which would mean drivers meeting by 11am if that happens. Immediately following the drivers meeting drivers will be asked to get there cars and head to the staging lanes. Once staging is completed, we will pause T&T and run through the 8.9 class with 10.6 immediately following.

- I'm going to slow things down a bit with the races. I do not want anyone starting their burnouts until the thumbs up is given and a winner of the previous race was confirmed by the tower.

- 30 minutes of cool down time will be given to the 10.6 class in-between rounds and 45 minutes will be given to the 8.9 Class.

Nice and simple, If you feel anything else needs to be covered, leave a comment.

Hello Gentleman, now that we have consolidated to a single hat race, we have expanded this race from 12 to a 18 car field. Also, a key note, we have moved from a Standard Tree to a Pro Tree.

If anyone has any questions or concerns, please feel free to let me know!

5 550iBernina Camaro_Ray Camaro_Ray Every_other_911 Every_other_911 I made this change and you guys already paid, if you have any reservations to me making this change please either comment or reach out to me directly. Trying to spice the slow car race up a bit now that we have consolidated to a single race.
Thanks for looking for input. I mean we can do what the group wants. But pro tree puts me and maybe other dct folks at a disadvantage. There’s a delay between lifting off the brake and accelerating. That’s just how the pdk and dsg transmissions work. Being able to time our launch with a regular tree helps drivers of those cars compensate for the delay.

To put in simpler terms, even if my foot has a perfect reaction time to the tree, I’d still lose out to another guy who’s foot lifted exactly at the same time as mine. Probably by .1-.2.

Mook Mook does the track offer an option of using a .400 vs .500 pro tree? The latter gives a little more time.

Every_other_911 Every_other_911 , Yeah it's a little harder to cut a good light with modern trans but if you think about it on a .500 pro tree once you both are fully staged you should be on the chip and cutting that light is really no different than a sportsman tree.
