Event Information

The best day(s) of racing here at RIR. We state its the hardest title in NZ to win and we are not kidding!! The format is well proven and requires 4 consistant races to get the title. Nothing is guarnanteed. 

We also have a Lunchbox/Grasshopper/Wheelie class and will extend this to cover off Frog, Subaru Brat, Blackfoot, Monster Beetle and any other derivitive. Not a race as such, but a chance to get these true vintage cars out. Superchamps etc are also included. We cant fit it on this system, but this will run on Saturday. If you are entering one of these cars, get in touch via email rc@rir.nz and let us know!!! Modern DT02 may enter with these cars. 

Entry Details

Entries open once these regs are published.

Pre96 Buggies may fit 2.2" modern wheels and tires. 

We recommend and have JC Goosebumps here in stock. JC Sprinters are also a option and in stock. As this will be the track and surface for the 2021 NZRCA Champs, we will have the JC Goosebump as the control tire, so you may wish to use these to get the feel of the track in Easter 2021.

Rules

We use the NZRCA rules for class/vehicle/technical requirements. 

The racing formats are RIR and as outlined above.

This is a 2 day club meeting, trophies are on offer, but if you really want one badly, we know the guy who makes them and he can probably sort one for you if you need then that badly.

Facility Rules:

RIR is a smokefree facility. Smoking and vaping must be done on the driveway beside the stock pens.

Covered shoes must be worn when at the facility. The track is in a paddock, there maybe hazards in the ground.

Please takeway all rubbish please.

We are a member club of the NZRCA. As such the technical and sporting rules that are set for our sport are respected. As this is a club meeting and our race formats and classes are unique to RIR, these are used as a guideline only, and we encourage you to ask questions if you are concerned - we are here to help and encourage participation at all levels. 

Scruitineering

We will do random checks, weights, tires, dimensions through out the weekend.

Prize Giving

Prizegiving will be held at the end of the days racing. If weather permits, a BBQ will be on saturday night to celebrate all things old. 

Lap Timing

AMB Lap scoring with 4.4 allowing most AMB transponders as well as MRT.

Marshalling

Marshalling is a requirement of all drivers to ensure the meeting runs smoothly. 

You must marshal the race after your race. A table will be at the left hand end of the drivers stand. Once you have finished your race, collect your car and put it on the table, then head out to marshal. 

Once that race has finished you may then check the race results which will be posted on the shed and collect your car. 

You may no longer go back to your pit area immediately after your race. 

All efforts will be made to not have back to back races but sometimes this is unable to be achieved. 

We appreciate parents marshalling the Junior races.

No Junior is to marshall the 1:8 E-Buggy races for safety reasons.

We encourage lots of volunteer marshalling on Saturday as we know there will be a lot of cross entries in the classes.

Pits

Mowen grass pit area, 240V Power, air compressor. Bring your own tables, chairs, ezups. Ezups must be pegged - this is the Manawatu afterall.

Food

We will have a BBQ and drinks for sale on site. 

Accommodation

There is a Air BNB across the road from the entry point to the track. If you come early, then the track will be available on saturday if you require. 

12 The Lane Air BNB

There is no shoartage of quality accomodation in Palmerston North, only 8 minutes drive. 

Weather

No provision for weather has been allowed. We will advise you of plans during the day and make changes as required to make the event work.
