QUALIFIERS AND MAINS:

We run 2- 7 minute quals with 3 minutes between heats. We really like it this way, and seems to work for us, we tried the 3 - 5 mins and it just did not very well. We have open practice at the beginning of the day. I have not decided if I am going to change this by having a controlled practice 15 minute windows for each class for example.
We use rocket round to set TQ. So highest number of laps in 7 minutes gets you TQ.

Electric A-Mains are 10 minutes. B-mains and lower are 8 minutes with 2 bumps
Nitro A-Mains are 20 minutes. B-mains and lower are 15 minutes with 2 bumps

The track has limited power to run the pa system, laptop, race directors charger. So please bring a source of electricity. There is a bunch of people that have them so make some friends.
