Tight Racing
Thanks to all racers for joining us for another great club race today!  With five heats of Touring Stock, this class is very tight across the board.  All our newer racers are improving so quickly that it's putting a lot of pressure on the middle/upper heats.  This is a good thing but the side effect is that so many cars are basically the same speed in each main which can sometimes lead to on track incidents.  This is part of the game, and close racing will ultimately make everyone cleaner and quicker, so keep on working and we'll all improve together.

We are racing again next Sunday August 15th.

Another Great Club Race!
Thanks to all racers for joining us for another fun race day yesterday!  We saw some of the closest qualifying and racing we've seen this summer, which is really saying something.  Congrats to everyone for the top notch driving.

We are racing again next Sunday Aug 29th, and we will take the following Sunday off (Sep 5).

Fun racing once again!
Thanks to all the racers who joined us for our fourth club race in four weeks yesterday.  Turnout this summer has been excellent!  Congrats to Nick K for showing us how it's done with some very consistent laps.


No Racing Next Sunday Sep 5
We are not racing on Sep 5th.  We'll be back on Sep 12th.


Possible season finale Enduro race
Based on the success of RRR's recent enduro race, there seems to be some interest in wrapping up IROCC's summer season with a similar race in late September.  Although the weather could be iffy, it might be a fun way to conclude an excellent summer of racing.  Stay tuned for more on this.

Another Fun Club Race!
Thanks to all the racers who joined us for racing yesterday.  It was another super fun race day.  Congrats to Jay and Cody for making their first A-Main appearances!  Both of these guys have been on the express program since starting with IROCC mid-summer.  Keep it up!

Next Race Day is Sept 19
We're racing again next Sunday Sept 19.

Enduro Day Sept 26
We'll be holding a special Enduro race on our last raceday of the summer, Sept 26.  These events are always super fun, and a nice change-up as we wrap up the summer.  Make sure to form a team or join a team to get involved.


Thanks,
Blake

Club racing tomorrow Sept 19

We're hoping to race tomorrow Sunday September 19 although the weather forecast is iffy.

Track setup will begin at 9:30am if possible.  All racers are expected to help with track setup.

If we get rained out, Island RC in Sooke has offered to open up their scheduled F1 day to touring cars and pan cars.  Thanks Island RC!


See you Sunday!

A few people have asked about this.  I was going to do it last Sunday but the rain got in the way.  Hopefully I can do it at the Enduro.

Enduro Race Sept 26, Questionable

IROCC's season ending Electric Enduro race is scheduled for this Sunday September 26 but the weather forecast does not look good so far.

We'll keep an eye on the forecast over the next couple days and provide an update closer to Sunday.

Racing Tomorrow (Sept 26) Is Cancelled

The weather forecast for tomorrow continues to look poor.  Racing is cancelled.

Stay tuned for more information about our upcoming indoor carpet season which starts in two weeks on October 9th.

Island RC is open for onroad racing tomorrow for those looking to get some track time.
