Ultra 4 Race Hot Springs, AR May 5-9th
« on: April 11, 2016, 08:21:17 PM »
We have committed to racing the #4610 LJ in Hot Springs, Arkansas the first weekend of May.
I'm assuming the Line Mtn race the weekend prior is a conflict for the other 3 cars?

How is the lower route 5 min slower.  That's just ridiculous.

Love google maps
I never wanted a red car.. always thought they were tacky and common...
I now have 4 very not common cars and they are all red.. :o

Talked last night about pulling the plug on this race and racing Line Mtn. On the 30th instead.

racing with a 100 cars is fun at RC on a 8-12mile loop :) 


last 3 miles of typical track has enough rocks to break all kinds of cars.  get your tire pressure up!

I know, no rocks sucks.
What class would we be?
Switching races is more of a logistical decision. We have a FULL schedule this spring and summer so cutting back on time and travel where we can.
Hoping we can get the same seat time at Rausch and at least some marketing exposure to make it a worthwhile tradeoff.

Pre registration for Line mtn?

show up and run.  there is a points system- you would be probably in C or D class and probably do well actually

Ok... Great :/
To be honest I'm not super excited. I just hope LM turns out to be like Rolling W. Looks like shit from an outsider POV. But they actually have their act together and put on a legit event.
Padlocks on everything!!!
