Power Racing Series 2014

The following page will contain planning information for the Power Racing Series 2014 Season.

(And by that we mean “public planning” as opposed to “private planning” we may do elsewhere to prevent other teams from learning too much. Yes, there is a private mailing list. You can ask to be added to it.)

At each race we will need at least one team member to volunteer as a Track Marshal. If we do not, we will be fined $50. (If we have spare people we can get hired by another team and make $50.)

We do not have to pay $20 per transponder at the race. At the most, give Patrick $5.00 because we are nice. (We've “rented” them about 5 times now.)

2014 Cars

These are the 2013 cars, some of which we can either re-use, or re-build as new cars.

1. Lotusaurus Wrecks #2055: AKA Audrey's car. Rebuilt from the ashes of Red Lotus. With custom-made Aluminum cast hubs forged in the alley of the Makerspace. “Hit and run driving is no longer a felony, it's the national sport!”

2. Iron Rose #61: AKA Tiffany's Car. Rumor has it this car will be powered not just by batteries, but a magical substance that surrounds us and plays a big part of our everyday lives. Also, it is shiny.

3. Jake N Stein #4: DOA… unless someone rebuilds it.
