Topic: OSCAR Sportscar race

On November 9th, 2019 I will be hosting the first official race at Springwater Raceway. Doors will open at 7am Saturday the 9th and Friday the 8th from 4pm-9pm. I am requesting only Sportscars on the track in order for all drivers to get practice. If time permits and no one is needing practice, then other cars may run. No alcohol or smoking allowed on the premises please. Please park in the paved parking lot only. Entry fee is 10.00 per racer. OSCAR sportscar rules apply. Thanks.

Re: OSCAR Sportscar race

What exactly are the Oscar rules/specs? I can't seem to find them on this site.
Would this be something that we race at Howies?
Maybe I might need to build something new.
What tire compound do you recommend for this track?

Re: OSCAR Sportscar race

I just posted a copy of OSCAR's rules here in the NASTE Forum under the OSCAR heading.

Thanks Bill

Re: OSCAR Sportscar race

An update to the OSCAR rules. All classes of OSCAR hardbody racing now has an open super 16D motor rule. Sealed motors can still be run, but the rule is now open super 16D. Hope that does not mess you all up. Thanks

Re: OSCAR Sportscar race

The opening of Springwater Raceway was a fantastic event! 14 racers showed up to race in the OSCAR Sports Car class. The race consisted of 4 minute heats, run on four of the tracks eight lanes, three times through the rotation, for a total of 48 minutes of on track race time for each driver.

The fast guys were running sub 5.5 second laps by the end of the race! The racing was extremely close with many on track battles between two or three cars running side by side. Each rotation was run as an individual race, with the driver rotation scrambled randomly for each start. After the three rotations were completed, lap totals were totalled for each driver to determine the winning. Tom Street from Bend was declared the winner, just edging out John Gill in second. Gary Tipton placed third and Bob Nakamura was fourth.

Re: OSCAR Sportscar race

Positioning your camera close to the computer monitor is the best way of getting photos of the competitors!

Re: OSCAR Sportscar race

Bob Hanna from Roseburg was in attendance. Bob ran one of his famous chassis, and yes, that is a HAWK motor! And YES, he WAS competitive and in the hunt!

Re: OSCAR Sportscar race

Even though I didn't race, it was great Bob, now I have even more parts scattered all over my bench and kits in the mail.

Re: OSCAR Sportscar race

Does anyone happen to have the results from this race?

I have been trying to keep Slotblog a bit more updated for our club and some folks are asking.

Thanks!

Re: OSCAR Sportscar race

Bob should have them, if I remember right Tom from Bend won.
