2WD ROOKIE CLASS

This class is for beginners and people who do not know if racing is for them and don’t want to spend large amounts of money just to race, possibly for one event, so these rules are designed to help keep the class competitive and fun.

GENERAL HOUSE RULES

LIPO SACK

Lipo Sacks are required at Granite Leisure Time when charging. You will be told once to use a sack, if you don’t comply you will be told to leave the property immediately.

QUALIFYING

During the qualifying races the faster car has the right of way. The Race Director will keep you informed of lap times, positions, as well as let you know if a faster car is behind you. You will be asked to let him/her by. If you fail to give up the preferred line, the Race Director will then instruct the slower driver to give up the preferred line.

MAINS

During the mains the Race Director controls the race. In the event that your car is in an accident, let the Corner Marshal pick up your car and place it on the racing surface. DO NOT DRIVE AGAINST TRAFFIC. If your car is broken, the Corner Marshal will hold the car in the infield for the duration of the race. You are to remain on the Drivers Stand for the duration of the race. Your car must finish under its own power.

RACING SURFACE

All cars can scrub in the tires on the carpet on the outside of the track barrier. No scuffing in or on the track. All trucks are put on and taken off the track at the owners risk so don’t stop your truck or put it down where another driver already on the track could hit it. Do not go backwards on the track at anytime. Trucks have been broken because of this.

PIT SPACES

Each racer is only allowed 3 feet of pit space regardless of how many classes they run, so organize and plan accordingly.

DRIVER STAND

Drivers over 5’ tall must not stand on anything to make them taller.

All remotes must stay behind blue railing. Please do not lean as other drivers may not be able to see their vehicle.

Driver spots are first come first serve, no exception.

We strive to provide a relaxing, kid and family friendly environment so foul language is not tolerated at any time.

Poor sportsmanship is frowned upon and a driver could lose a win/position if seen showing poor behavior.

Corner marshals are your friends, as they are your lifeline to a flipped over truck so treat them accordingly. No commenting or talking to a corner marshal from drivers stand or trackside allowed during a race. If your truck is flipped over, do not holler to a marshal (you will be asked to leave the driver stand immediately) the race director will do his/her best to make a corner marshal aware of a rolled truck, this is a part of racing as the corner marshal is usually not to blame for a rolled truck. Any driver showing disregard to this policy will be asked to remove themselves from the property.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

*The track and race director are not responsible for broken trucks (we try to provide a safe racing course but not all circumstances can be foreseen) regardless of what caused it, racing comes with inherent risks if you are not willing to accept these risks then please do not race. *If the rules do not specifically say you can do something, then you cannot do it. *Rules may be subject to change, Race Director always has final say at any time.
