What started out many years ago as Mike Reedy’s vision to showcase the world’s best drivers in a format unlike any other ever used in RC racing, has grown to be one of the most anticipated and prestigious RC races in the world.
Reedy, Tamiya America, and Scotty Ernst Productions are proud to announce that after a five-year absence, the Reedy International Touring Car Race of Champions will return to the Tamiya America circuit May 22-25, 2014.
Entries open February 24th at noon PST exclusively on www.RCSignup.com. Due to time constraints and to maintain the world-class nature of the event, Open class entries are limited to 13.5 Blinky (ROAR ESC and motor list) and Modified with total entries capped at 160 (100 13.5, 60 Modified). Each driver is limited to one entry.
To allow everyone an opportunity to be a part of the 2014 Reedy Touring Car Race of Champions, a lottery drawing for the Open classes will be conducted on March 17th, with the first 100 13.5 and 60 Modified entries drawn securing a place in the event. Entry fees are not collected until after the lottery drawing for the selected Open class entries. One set of control tires and a souvenir pit mat are included with each confirmed and paid entry.
Drivers that finished in the A Main in either the 13.5 or Modified classes at the 2013 Reedy International Touring Car Race of Champions will be given an automatic entry in the class of their choice. However, these drivers must sign up and pay their entry within the specified time frame.
Factory sponsored drivers (those whose travel arrangements are paid for by their sponsor and/or are paid a salary to race) are not eligible to compete in the 13.5 class.
