Tamiya GT finals will start at the beginning of Round 2.
This is so out-of-town-drivers can get a head start driving home.
We want to encourage as many new & non-regular drivers to the event as possible.
At the very minimum, drivers will get the same amount of race time as a normal meeting. This is why the minimum final time is 10 minutes. Hopefully, you'll get the enduro bug.
Will this be a really long night?
We've done the maths.
Here are the TOTAL minutes of racing of the class
|1~10 entries||15 minutes||24 minutes|
|11~20 entries||30 minutes||43 minutes|
|21~30 entries||45 minutes||57 minutes|
|31~40 entries||60 minutes||72 minutes|
21~30 entries adds only 12 minutes to the race night
That doesn't take into account the downtime between races - so it might potentially be less.
We are starting an hour earlier
Even if we had an unprecedented 31+ entries (which would be amazing), this format only adds an extra 16 minutes over and above the standard meeting. Of course, it would be a little longer simply because of the numbers.
On a normal race meeting we have an "A" & "B" final... which is 30 minutes of racing.
If we have a "D" final, at 72 minutes, which is 32 minutes than longer, we still save 28 minutes by starting an hour earlier.
If you are NOT racing Tamiya GT, you can use the opportunity to go get dinner while we race the Finals.
"A" final drivers will marshal the lowest final - so we'll advise on the night the length of time that is safe to get dinner. For Tamiya GT drivers that are running other classes, please be prepared with dinner - as we won't stop for a break.
All other classes will run as normal with 3 rounds.
