Manufacturers’ Cup “More Fun” Says Top Pros
Last years 2017 race report: https://tracks.amainhobbies.com/2017-amain-hobbies-manufacturers-shootout-by-tekin/
AMain Performance Hobbies and Silver Dollar RC Raceway would like to welcome you to the 2018 AMain Hobbies’ Manufacturers Cup. A race with the intent to bring all of the manufacturers together to compete against each other for the coveted 2018 Manufacturers Cup title. The race will award classes individually, but results will be combined to crown the actual team champion—the Manufacturers Cup.
The Manufacturers’ Cup will be awarded to the top two pro finishers and combined with the top open-class finisher with the same chassis. First place will be awarded one point, second place two point, third place three points and so on in the pro and open divisions. The team with the lowest point total will win with the tie breaker going to the team with the highest combined laps and fastest times of the three drivers.
The open division will be racing 3 rounds of IFMAR qualifying (14-15 minutes nitro; 8-10 minute electric) with single main events with bumps (14-15 minutes nitro; 8-10 minute electric main events). How you finish in the final main event will be your result. All drivers should get an hour of track time in this format on top of what they get in practice Friday and Saturday morning.
The pro drivers will be running 4 heads up mains reshuffled with stagger starts for points (14-15 minutes nitro; 8-10 minute electric mains). A 1st in an individual main will be one point a 12th will be twelve points. Low points win with one throw out ( Just like Reedy Style) except there will be one pit stop more than likely for all drivers unless they can go 14-15 minutes on a tank of fuel. Each racer will ideally receive a different row start as best allowed with the reshuffling every round with goal being one for sure front row start. All drivers should get an hour of track time in this format on top of what they get in practice Friday and Saturday morning.
Also, the event will be about all spectators and racers getting the opportunity to see what the pros are running and get a chance for some one on one with top pro drivers and their products they are running in a manufacturer booth setup.
This premier event will be the first of many for the 2018 AMain race season.
