Will NOORA be the only place to race buggys in this area next year? Does anyone have any specific rules for their stadium lite class?

MAORA has shown interest in mini buggies, if you are willing to travel to Illinos and Indiana, and can bring enough racers.

Thanks Nut, :)

That track looked like a blast, and If we were able to make an out of state race,,,,That would be a track I would want to run on.

Would not care about what class,,,just let me run & score us in what ever class you want.

I just installed the gas pedal today in my new 2 seater,,,,,getting antsy,,,,I hope to race more this year

Have you considered going to the TREC races? They are in Attica, Indiana which is only about 4.5 hours away from you.

I also wish that track in Ohio was having races this year as it's not too far away from me, much closer than Indiana.

What track, or which MAORA race was the video above at?

Minibajaman,
yes I was just checking some distances and Attica would be the closest at 4.5 hrs away.
the other MAORA tracks are 6 & 7 hrs away

Hope to make 1 or 2 out of state races,,,,we will see

TREC/Badlands isnt to friendly to bigger buggies you pretty much have to be Pilot/Drakart size Badlands Off Road Park - Indiana, 4x4, ATV, motorcycle riding, sand dunes, mud pits, rock crawling (http://www.badlandsoffroad.com/miscpage_010.asp)

Nut

Same size as we have been racing for years?

70" wide
single seat 114" long

Same is Drakart,,,right?

2 seat 120" long
6" longer, but same width

are you saying the track is not built for cars this size?
This is the size / specs all the bench race talk has been for ever?

or the people running the track are not friendly and do not want race buggies to show up?

If we can handle the tight corners short course racing - turn 7-8 at Bob's....

(Not sarcastic)
I guess I have not been there yet so please share more info on why or what kind of track this is.
I would hate to make the drive if this is not the place for us.

I am not sure if your to big or not and wasnt meaning to chaffe you either :) Just give em a call before heading down there is all I am saying :) and the track runs full size vehicles they just dont allow buggies in the badlands but do allow pilot like vehicles and side x sides you should be ok but a quick phone call could save some possible grief I hope you dont feel like I was slamming a door in your face

no chaffing:) just wondering what the size restrictions were for them.

I have not found a track yet , that does not want us to run.
Most tracks are just disappointed there are not more.

If think we can make it I will check with them directly

You can run anything you want at the TREC races.
On a NON race day they dont want any sand cars/bush buggies.
I have had no problem with pilots and revolts on NON race days. I dunno what they would tell you about the Proto cars on NON race days.
You guys will have no problem on race day!

You will have no issues at all on race day. Most of the course was wide enough for a semi.
The previous owners didnt allow the big sand cars/bush buggies. I think if you run a atv/utv type tire you can ride on non race days. But you will be fine for sure on race day.

To answer original question:
STADIUM LITES/PILOTS


STADIUM LITES
*Fuel tanks must be safe in design and monuting, safety committee has final ruling
*Fire suit recommended, but not required, long pants and long sleeved shirts required
*Must have working breaking system
*Chasiss must be designed to adequately protect driver
More Class Descriptions (http://www.noora.freewebtools.com/custom3.html)
