    Four (4) cars are required to form a class. Class specs may change without notice as class grows in order to meet the needs of the race class. Depending on the number of entries, racers may race according to skill level (Novice, Sportsman, or Expert).

    Any car with a set-up other than the factory setting is considered modified. Modified cars will run in the Super Sport class. All cars may be checked to insure compliance with race rules.


    Qualification and Main Races
    Qualification races are 4-6 minutes.
    Main Event races are 6-30 minutes.
    Qualification and Main Event races may change due to unforeseen events or situations (classes, available time, or the number of competitors).

    Conduct
    Unsportsmanlike conduct is any action or language that may be regarded as abusive to a spectator or another racer. It is not allowed before, after, or during a race.
    Unsportsmanlike conduct may result in loss of points or disqualification or other penalties at the discretion of track officials.
    Cars cannot be pushed across the finish line.
    Drivers are not to drive against the flow of a race, block faster drivers, or attempt to purposely wreck another driver.
    Shortcutting the track is not allowed. If a driver cuts the track, he/she must pull aside and allow the competitor immediately behind him/her to pass. Failure to do so will result in penalties (10 seconds, a lap per offense, or qualifier.)

    Marshals
    Every competitor is expected to marshal immediately after his/her race or designate a substitute and immediately notify race officials of the change.
    Penalty for not marshalling is one lap off of best qualifier.
    Cars that can no longer continue in a race will be removed from the track if they are in the path of other cars. Otherwise, they are to be removed after the race.
    Turn Marshals will not repair cars during a race.
    Turn Marshals must remain on the track until each race has been officially completed.

    Radio
    To avoid possible frequency conflicts, racers should consider having a second frequency available to compete. DSM/Spektrum-type radios will be the exception.
    Only a race official may authorize a frequency change.
    Radio impound will be immediately after a qualification/main event ends. The exception to this is that a competitor will use the same radio for immediate use.

    Practice
    Practice will terminate one (1) hour prior to the start of the first qualifier.
    All practice will be monitored by a race official.

    Maintenance
    Clean your area
    Remove foreign objects from racing surface
    Help with track set-up or removal
    Assist race director with one race (qualifier or main)
    Report unsafe conditions or the improper operating of RC equipment.

    Safety
    Follow directions from the race director at all times.
    Lipo bags are required. No exceptions!

    So what is the age limit for kids that want to race?
    Is everything is on-road racing right now and will you all have a dirt track?
    and is there a cost to race?
    THANK you...

    For those that may not be able to ride karts, RC racing may be the fit. A young child (about age 8) should be able to learn how to operate a radio control car with ease after a few sessions and an adult nearby.

    On another note, two of the classes are SPEC classes- cars have same motor, tires, battery limit, and, so on. Added, the cost is less to participate in SPEC racing. If cost or equipment is a factor, rental cars will become available.

    Lastly, in the spirit of NOLA Motorsports Park, on-road racing will remain the focus until it is solid. Cost will be around $20 for a day of exciting RC racing.

    Default 1/5 Scale

    I have tried it. It's not so bad or good- the kart track is a lot. I ran my old FG around the oval.
