The new USRA SPORTSMAN class allows you to “run what ya brung." Victorville, California - October 24-27, 2013
Other than that, plane across the finish line wins the heat. As a benchmark, your plane will need to be able to sustain 105-120mph for 6 laps AND you’ll need to fly a straight course without cutting pylons.
The course is a 2 pylon oval course with pylons 1600 feet apart, the USRA has computerized scoring with times, speeds and turn times for you after every heat so you can see how you’re doing. BTW, you will need a turn caller for racing, so bring a buddy or two!! Expect to fly 6 heats with a final gold race for the top 5 finishers on Sunday, you can test fly and practice on Thursday after registration and safety inspections. It sounds easy!!!…let’s see if you can throw down on the race course with the rest of us!
There will be help for the newcomers and great camaraderie and fun stuff like bench racing, music, refreshments, night flying racing, music, refreshments, night flying and more on the lake bed after the days racing as well.
