Entries are stopped at 180 and then we put out a waiting list. What happens next is we fill all the heats up, for example, 21.5T might have 16 total so we allocate 4 more spots so there are 2 full heats, this does not change the schedule for the day but instead insures everyone that they will have great racing with full heats no matter where they are positioned. The waiting list is also used to bump the next person up if someone pulls out prior to the event.
The fifth & final stop of the tour takes us indoors to Dandenong in the south-east of Melbourne. SERCCC and ATS have joined forces to bring you arguably the biggest and best on-road RC event in this part of the World.
We would like to give a big shout out to all of the committee members and helpers from SERCCC who spend days and days putting this event together, building the track, building the drivers stand, keeping us fed, setting up the pit spaces and then pulling it all down again as most of us leave to catch planes or drive back home.
The venue is Gloria Pyke Netball Complex, it's a dedicated indoor sporting centre and it's MASSIVE! the lighting is incredible, there are toilets and showers in case you've been wrenching and feeling like a freshen up! There are hundreds of car parks so you don't have to worry about finding a spot.
As always, we will be using our high grip ETS Carpet, the track will be laid out a couple of days before the start of the event so it will be super flat and ready.
Just like last year, there will be a $15 door charge to pay to SERCCC if you want to practise on Thursday.
There will be open practise, 1 seeded practise for qualifying, 4 qualifyings and 3 finals. Your 2 best qualifying results will determine your starting position in the finals. Your best 2 final results determine your finishing position.
And, bump ups! If you only make the C final due to problems....you still have a chance to bump up to the Bs and then the As! Woohoooo
