MRG @ The BarnYard
MRG RACING is an onsite trailer selling RC gear from tires, electronics, accessories and more. He is here on all race days and may have what your looking for contact for inquires!
The surface is a clay/dirt mix, to begin the raceday the track will have moisture in it and will groove throughout the day, depending on weather conditions the track will usually have a blue groove begun mid round 2.
No water is applied during the raceday, simply blown off between rounds.
AWARDS on RACEDAY
Plaques for top 3 in most mains are awarded at the end of a race day. Trophies are presented at the end of the series.
Scoring is brodcasted to LiveRC during racedays, and video is often posted afterwards.
There are a few locations within about 6-8 minutes, both fast food and sit down options.
We will serve lunch on every raceday! A variety of meals we rotate through, including subs, pizza, hamburgers and hotdogs, and pulled pork sandwiches!
other snacks and drinks are also available throughout the day!
TIMS IN THE MORNIN
Enjoy FREE Tim's coffee and timbits on mornings of raceday!
info to be added soon
We have an indoor pit area, power equipped pit tables with a chair are already setup, on hot summer days this is often a good choice!
Majority will be pitting outside on the opposite side of the track, we have some hydro hookup (bring an extension cord) generators are welcome and a canopy may not be a bad idea either.
Racedays will begin with practice in the morning and then include 3 Rounds of a new Qual Points format, followed by one rounds of mains. 5min qualifiers and 7mins will be the case for most events!
On some racedays we may even have the prize table full and draw some names for some givaways!
Registration fees will differ depending on what event, for points races there is no official pre-registration. We just ask you join the Facebook event so we have a good guess on the turnout.
For trophy races there will be an RCSignup page created.
