Parent Meetings

TBA at 7 pm at Tiffany Elementary School, 1691 Elmhurst St, Chula Vista, CA 91913 in the multipurpose room. Mandatory for all first time racers!  Anyone is welcome to come but we require all first time racers to attend one parent meeting when we’ll go over how the car inspection, practice time and race day work. What equipment to bring for your pit and pit crew. What time to come to set up. We’ll explain about car pushers and how random pairing, timing and the starting gate and laser finish are controlled and much more! We’ll have plenty of time for questions. Sign up for one of the meetings when you register. IMPORTANT New Racers – You will not be allowed to race if you didn’t attend one of the parent meetings.

Mandatory Car Inspection

All cars MUST pass Inspection before they will be allowed on the racecourse.  Brakes will be tested, weight , axle and steering will be checked. Drivers must be able to brake the car independently.

Also for all 7 & 8 year olds  the seats must be enclosed with solid sides.  See an example here

Open Practice

11:00 to 1 pm Participants check in at the Information table, get an inspection number and set up your pit tent.  Inspection starts at 11:30 (Race Course set up volunteers get to go first, cars that have been pre-inspected at the Build a Car Clinics go though a very quick inspection.) Pick up your race wheels and put them on your car.  You can race till the course closes at 3 pm.  Practice is mandatory for 1st time racers in all age groups and you must practice at least once in the car you are racing in on Sunday. Bring your pop up shade structures and chairs and set them up in your spot on Saturday. All cars must stay overnight, we have a night watchman. This way we can get started Sunday morning early.

3pm Race course closes for the night.

The Race

August 19th, 2018

Please arrive by 8 am to check in and get your t-shirt at the Information table. Keep the noise down to respect the neighbors. Opening Ceremony begins promptly at 8:30 am and the race begins right after that and goes till we finish, usually around 4pm! It is a double elimination race so all racers get to race at least twice on Sunday. If you are not here by the time the race begins you can get an automatic loss in your first race.

We take a 30 minute lunch break (we will not be selling food on site this year, please bring your own).

When you’re finished racing, take your race wheels off and wipe them off and return them and pick up your medal. Winners in 1st, 2nd and 3rd get a trophy. Please stay for the photo of the winners in each age group.
