2018 Big Event Schedule

This post is intended to be a brief summary of all our 2018 big events and series races consolidated into one post. Each event will get its own post/page as time gets nearer to each events date with specific details for each event.

Practice will continue to be on Friday nights at 6PM to 11:30PM. We will also be filling in the 2018 Calendar with club races very soon.

NOTICE: This post may be updated throughout the year so keep an eye on it.

Classes Structure For 2018

Novice

At MRCR, we will only offer 2wd Novice.

We will continue the implementation of a “bump out” rule. Starting January 1st, 2016 if a Novice driver wins first place 3 times (Consecutive and/or Non-consecutive) they will be bumped out of Novice and into their respective vehicle class. This rule is exempt from any series race however, but if a Novice driver wins a series race, that driver will automatically bump out of Novice.
