We are very pleased to announce that registration is open for the SCCA South Jersey Region Lightning Challenge on June 3, 4 & 5, 2016. You can register at www.dlbracing.com or you can go to our schedule page on Right Coast website at www.rcffs.org/schedule and click the link there to get to the same registration along with links to track maps and the sups.
This event is a North East Division (NEDIV) championship race as well as a New Jersey Road Racing Series/Mid Atlantic Road Racing Series (NJRRS/MARRS) regional race. Those of you who are entering both the Lightning Challenge NJRRS/MARRS Regional and the Right Coast Formula F Series races this weekend will be on track 5 times. Two of those on track sessions are Right Coast FF/CF only races; a 20 lap race on Saturday and another 20 lapper on Sunday.
The Saturday morning qualifying session is Group 3 which is a FF/CF/FV/FST/F500 race group. Later on Saturday morning, there will be a 15 lap regional qualifying race with that same race grouping. No sooner than 1 hour later is the first Right Coast Formula F Series 20 lap race which will be FF/CF only. The grid for that race will be determined by the fastest lap done in either the qualifying session or the regional qualifying race.
If a driver chooses to only enter the Right Coast series portion of the event; then that driver will be required to start from the rear for the first Right Coast race. The grids for the Right Coast races will be determined by the driver’s fastest lap from any previous on track session.
We want to caution Formula F Drivers who are trying to get to the Runoffs via the Divisional Championship route. The Right Coast Formula F Series does not have a tire rule for Formula F and you are free to run whatever tire you choose. However, if you want your race results in the NEDIV/NJRRS/MARRS regional portion of the program to count towards a Runoffs invitation; then you must be on the Hoosier Radial Formula F spec tire.
Drivers who enter the entire Saturday/Sunday race program will get approximately 12 laps of qualifying and 75 laps of racing for a total of around 87 laps around Lightning at this event. We hope you all see this as a good value for your $550 entry fee. There is also a separate Friday portion of the program that is a test day administered by the South Jersey Region. The cost for Friday is $200 which will get you four  sessions of open wheel/sport racers of 18-20 minutes each for a total of between 75 and 80 minutes of track time.
For those drivers who want to pull Ironman/Ultra Marathon duty; Thursday, June 2, is a Member day at NJMP which is open to non-member competition licensed drivers and features a separate open wheel and spec racer run group. This day will also include a track walk -- see the NJMP web site, www.njmp.com, for additional details and cost.
So, please join us for Right Coast Formula F Series race number 1 of 2016! If you should have any questions, please use the Contact page on the Right Coast website and we will get back to you right away.
