I am running a different style of racing on November 5, 2022. It is called the SAM Winterfest Tango Pylon Race. There will be 2 classes to this event, Bronze and Silver. This race is an eliminator race that was created by Dale Krawl many years ago. I am taking his rules and putting some modification in it. This race is being put on to get together one more time in 2022 and have lots of fun.

The format will be as follows, with the basic SAM Warbird Rules.

Racing Format will be as follows:


Silver:      There will be a total of 3 rounds of qualifying and top 12 pilots with the most accumulated points will advance to round 4. The points will be reset back to 0 for the top 12 Pilots. The top 8 pilots from round 4 with the most points will advance to round 5. The points will be reset back to 0. Top 4 pilots with the most points will advance to the Trophy Dash. These 4 pilots will race for the 2023 SAM Winterfest Tango Pylon Race Silver Champion.

Bronze:     There will be a total of 3 rounds of qualifying and top 10 pilots with the most accumulated points will advance to round 4. The points will be reset back to 0. The Top 5 pilots with the most points will advance to the Trophy Dash. These 5 pilots will race for the 2023 SAM Winterfest Tango Pylon Race Bronze Champion.

Go to our website to get more information, list of pilots registered and examples on how to register for the race.

http://sacramentoareamodelers.com/warbird-racing.html

Because of the little time frame we have before the sun gets in front of us at the flying field, there will be limited openings for the race. So if you like to get in and have lots of fun, get registered ASAP. The website will show how many openings there are in each class.

I will allow pilots to register for both classes while there are openings. But for Bronze class, newer pilots will have first option to race and veteran pilots will be fill-ins. If you need clarification on this, please contact me anytime.

Trophy Dash Winners will recieve an Award and Prize Money.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at (916) 705--7778.

Thanks
JR
