Awesome!

What chassis is Novice?

The Novice class is listed there to try to encourage new people that might otherwise be too timid.  It will be handled on a case-by-case basis and may simply run in the lower TC class.  Any onroad type chassis/body of appropriate scale would be fine.

Carpet Racing Clinic Sunday October 4th

IROCC will be hosting a carpet racing clinic on Sunday October 4th, 10:00am at the outdoor track parking lot.

This clinic will be an opportunity for newer onroad racers to learn a few important tricks for racing on carpet this Fall.  The clinic will run about one hour and will cover topics such as:

  • Tire preparation and tuning
  • Body preparation
  • Setup and driving
  • 12th Scale racing
  • Other topics as requested

Bring your car, body, and carpet tires to the session.  There will be some carpet tires available for purchase for those still looking for some.

See you there,
Blake

Important Announcements For Saturday

This Saturday (Oct 10) is our first race of the indoor carpet season.  Please read these three items:

  • Help Needed!  We need help loading up the track equipment from its current storage location.  Local racers, please meet us at Our Lady Of The Rosary Church in Langford at 2:00pm on Saturday to assist.  The address is: 798 Goldstream Ave

  • Tables!  The new venue has some tables for our use, but not enough to cover everyone.  If you have a folding table, you probably want to bring it along for the first night at least.  You MUST bring your own chair.

  • Race Fee Pre-Payment!  If you have not already pre-paid for the first race night, please take care of that now.  Message me privately for details.

Thanks,
Blake

On The Sound Of The Tone....

As we all get ready for Saturday evening's season opener race, here are a few important notes:

  • Track setup starts at 4:00pm and all racers are expected to help as usual (reasonable exceptions are fine).

  • Track setup will be slow as we learn the new venue and as new club members learn the ropes.  The second race night will go MUCH quicker for setup.

  • SXT is the only permitted traction compound on the club carpet.  We will have some onsite.  Wet tires MUST be wiped with a cloth before the car hits the track.

  • We will run an extended practice session at the start of the evening to give everyone a chance to get up to speed.

  • We will be collecting race fees for the second race night.

Thanks,
Blake

An Opening Night Like No Other
October 10th saw IROCC kick off its 2020 indoor carpet season.  It was bittersweet as it marked the one year anniversary of the passing of our friend and fellow racer Jody.  Personally, thinking about him throughout the evening helped me get through a difficult night.  Imagining him laughing at the debacle that was the pit area setup kept me smiling!

Big thanks to all the racers that attended, from near and far, some of which were running on black carpet for the first time.  I was very impressed with how quickly racers learned the new surface.

Next Race: Saturday Oct 24
The next race is in two weeks, on Saturday October 24th.  The pit setup and track setup will go much quicker and we will be running a full three rounds of qualifying and mains.

Great Club Race!
Thanks to all the local and travelling racers who joined us yesterday!  We had our best indoor turnout we've seen in a long time!

Track setup and teardown were both very good with everyone helping out and working together efficiently.  We enjoyed lots of good racing throughout the night and I noticed a little more controlled driving from everyone compared to the first night.

We kicked off our informal 5-race points series which will wrap up just before Christmas.  Three of five races will count, and it's just for fun and bragging rights with your friends.

Next Race Saturday, Nov 7th
The next race is Saturday November 7th.  If you are local to Victoria then please do your best to get your payment submitted in advance.

Sorry about not having the body with me on the weekend. It seems i only check this site once a week or so now.   The body is new if you still need one. $20 New Body... (  I would never change money for a used body!)

No problem. I ended up buying one at afros so I will be covered now for next week. My 12 scale had some horrendous handling issues anyway so I did not miss much lol

Another Great Club Race!
Thanks to all the local and travelling racers who joined us for last Saturday's club race!  We had another good turnout and some awesome racing - especially the two A-Mains.  He'll never read this but congrats to Nick F for some impressive performances!  We also had some new racers running their first ever laps with IROCC which is always great to see.

Big thanks to Ashley and Adam for taking a bunch of pictures!

Next race we will open registration at 3:45pm outside for those who arrive early.  This will allow us to get the heats setup more quickly and better pre-sorted.

Next Race Saturday, Nov 21st
The next race is Saturday November 21st.  If you are local to Victoria then please do your best to get your payment submitted in advance.

Hi all,

We've had several inquiries about Saturday night's (Nov 21) race program in light of today's new restrictions around Covid-19.  We have been in contact with Eagle Ridge and their management team is discussing the new rules.  They will get back to us with a Yes/No as soon as they can, and we will share that information here.

Thanks,
Blake

Hi all,

Saturday's (Nov 21) race night will proceed as scheduled.  Eagle Ridge has permitted our use of the facility under guidance from viaSport and the Provincial Health Officer.  We are expecting a reduced turnout but still enough for a fun evening of racing.

Masks must be worn at all times within the facility.

See you there,
Blake

Fun Club Race!
Thanks to all the racers who joined us for last Saturday's club race!  We had some really fun racing throughout the field.  Huge shout-out to some of our new racers: Aaron, Brian, Dan, Doug, Mike, other Mike, Paul, and Sierra.  All these racers ran extremely well and have been adapting to carpet racing (or just racing in general) really quickly.  Keep up the great work!

Next race we will continue to utilize early registration at 3:45pm as this helped the RD crew quite a bit.

Next Race Saturday, Dec 5th
The next race is Saturday December 5th.  If you are local to Victoria then please do your best to get your payment submitted in advance.
