General Rules

Please show respect:


During racing:

Track calls are permitted only for:

Weekly Racing Format 

We typically run a nine-week series using a specified class of slot car body. Furthermore, we race on a different track each week in a series,  so that each track has been raced on three times at the end of a series.  We use an Engleman -> Blue King - > Orange -> Engleman -> and so on track rotation for each series.

Slot car bodies are changed each series, based on body styles such as NASCAR, LMP, GTP, or even "retro" bodies. This practice keeps the racing very affordable, fun, and interesting by varying the body, not the underlying slot car. Drivers must master the nuances of each body style used, including inherent aerodynamic/handling differences, which can be significant.

We sometimes run two-person team mini-enduros to ensure an adequate number of turn marshals during each heat. Each driver uses his/her own car in the race. Teams are decided by drawing lots.  However, if race turnout is sufficient, we will run as individuals. We run 2.5-minute heats in individual racing. The racing point system, described below, applies to this individual racing.

We use a European-style lane rotation: Red->Green->Blue->Purple->Black->Yellow->Orange->White->

​Point system in weekly individual racing:

below 8th = 1

Saturday Racing Technical Specifications

The Viper Pit offers scheduled Saturday racing; otherwise, Saturdays are used for testing and tuning. Saturday race classes differ from our weekly racing, and depending on the class, we may use national or international rules of racing. For example,  we sometimes offer retro racing using IRRA rules.
