*** VERY IMPORTANT SCHEDULE NOTE ***
The new WCICS triple/double mains format requires more time to complete the main events compared to previous years.  Depending on turnout,  we *might* run the A1 mains on Saturday evening after qualifying is finished.  If this is deemed necessary, then we will also run several heats of Q1 (likely Mini and Touring Stock) on Friday evening to allow more time on Saturday.  As registration numbers firm up, we'll know if these schedule adjustments will be necessary or not.


Travel
The track location is very close to the Victoria airport (YYJ), the BC Ferry terminal (Swartz Bay), and the WA Ferry terminal (Anacortes->SidneyBC). All of these options are less than five minutes from the track and hotel. IROCC is offering a free shuttle service for those that are flying or walking-on the ferries.


Food
There are many restaurants, fast-food options, and grocery stores within one/two blocks of the track.


Registration
http://www.wcics.ca/register.php

Registrants are encouraged to supply their cell phone number and/or email address while registering to take advantage of the automated WCICS Live race number notifications.

Nice! Just when I thought the wcics series could not get any better, they add even MORE heats to the event!

With all the support wcics is having and the new carpet, we are up for a great event.

Be happy to run a class or two if anyone has any a loaner.

I have an older CRC 1/12th scale with motor, speed controller, servo and transponder. I also have some older batteries. It has an Spectrum Rx that I can supply a Tx to go with it or you can install your own. You will need to supply a body and tires to make it complete.

Neil.

PS I have an X-ray T4 2013 touring car that you could us as well. It would need a body and you would have to buy the spec tires for the race.

Thanks Neil, I'll have a better idea of how much funding I can throw at this by the end of the month.  Not to mention, I'll have to find the time to get to Matrix for an evening to get the car dialed in.

Yes I will let you use my Tc for the race. I have three 21.5 motors that you can pick from and I am going to use a new body for the race so you could us my old one that is in fair condition, you would have to supply tires for the car.

The body is a 1970 boss mustang, the same body I will be using but I plan on painting it different colors, it is a Parma part number 10141.

I am hearing rumours around Sydney that we may be on the news........ Oh boy!
This may be good exposure for the club.
Nothing confirmed yet.
Were we on the news last year?

Hey all,

The track is open for practice on Wednesday and Thursday this week.  At 6:30PM on Thursday, we will tear down the track and pack everything into a trailer for transport to Sidney.  We need lots of people to be at Matrix at this time to help.

Track setup in Sidney will be Friday morning at 10AM at the Mary Winspear Centre.  We need as much help as possible for this.

I see individual race results on wcics live, but I can't find final standings there. Are there plans to incorporate this feature into wcics live?
