I am pleased to announce we will be holding the 6th Annual Scaleracing National Finals September 7th - 9th.

The Race Place

Scaleracing National Finals

I Hope to see a lot of SCI Readers at this Event.

Racing will start on the Friday evening, with the main focus on Testing for the out of town racers attending.

Saturday will be:

 1/32 scale Sclot.it Group C

& 

 The Scaleracing Manufacturers Challenge.

This racing is a tuning class for Arrow, Avant Slot, Scaleauto and Slot.it LMP/GT1 type cars.

Entries and time permitting there will also be 1/24 scale BRM and Scaleauto Sprints on Saturday evening after the 1/32 scale program is over.

This will be determined by pre entries in the 1/32 scale classes so we can set the schedule for races.

Sunday will feature both BRM and Scaleauto 1/24th scale Endurance racing for 2 man Teams.

Entry fees for this Event are as follows:

Pit Pass which gives you access for all three days into The Race Place and unlimited Track Time ( will be run by classes )

3 Day Pit Pass http://www.132slotcar.us/store/product_info.php?products_id=6474 $25.00 ( increases to $30.00 after August 18th )

this represents a $5.00 saving on the daily pass which will be $10.00 on each day.

Friday test and tune plus informal Sprint Races.

 The main idea of Friday is to allow traveling Racers some track time to get use to the Red Lightning, free with a 3 day Pit Pass.

Saturday National Final Sprints.

The featured races are Slot.it Group C which by design is a close to stock class and the Scaleracing Manufacturers Challenge for Arrow, Avant Slot, Scaleauto and Slot.it LMP/GT1 type cars. This is a tuning class motors must be matched to the brand of car run, and configuration of the STOCK car, gears are open to Manufacturers listed.
