Registration for the first event of the 2017 Right Coast Formula F Series presented by American Pen Company is on the Lightning Circuit at New Jersey Motorsports Park on June 3 & 4, 2017 on MotorsportReg.com. We would like to thank the South Jersey Region of the SCCA, particularly JD King & Terry Hanushek, for inviting Right Coast back again this season.
This race weekend is an SCCA Regional race and is a New Jersey Road Racing Series and Mid Atlantic Road Racing Series event as well as our season opener. You will be able to race four times this weekend if you so choose. Race Group 3 is the regional race group (FF, F500,FV, FST & CF) that we will be qualifying in. This qualifying session sets the grid for the NJRRS/MARRS races AND the grid for the first Right Coast Race. The grid for the second Right Coast race will be set by the fastest lap achieved from either the qualifying session or the first RCFFS race.
You can enter the Regional only, the Right Coast race only or enter both events and get a qualifying session, a 15 lap regional qualifying race, a 20 lap regional race and two 20 lap Right Coast Formula F Series races. That would be 15 minutes of qualifying and 65 laps of racing for $550. There is a test day on Friday which is an additional cost for those who want some extra time on the Lightning circuit.
Registration is now open on www.MotorsportReg.com. Those who previously entered on the DLB site have had their entries transferred over and no further action is required. Look for Lightning Challenge on June 1-4. You can register for the test days and the races in one fell swoop. Please let me know if you should have any questions.
So, please enter as quickly as you can or let us know if you are coming so we can get a headcount for this event. It would be great if we could begin the season with 25 drivers racing, so please let us know.
One new feature that we are instituting this season is that at the evening social at the end of the first day of each race weekend we will vote on which of the two races on the final day will be the “feature” race with the podium finishers being awarded our unique trophies. This would allow those who have towed long distances and would like to get on the road early to have an opportunity to have a chance to race for a trophy.
We are not trying to hustle people out of the track; but we do recognize that we sometimes do not have a great deal of control over the schedule. So we would like to give our drivers this choice.
So, please come and join us at NJMP in June 3 & 4.
