PostProposed AutomodEx Race Track

2010FEB09 UPDATE

for EP we get the full technical layout, for GP less twist and more flat-outs, for minis a lot of left and right turns, less straight.



anymore comments guys.. we need to finalize this by today clown



____________________________________________________________________________________
2010FEB07 UPDATE

This is to inform you that Automodex have decided to remove the OFF-ROAD Track categories for the following reasons:

•Only 5 participants registered on line for 2 weeks campaign
•Off Road Track is really hard to set-up

Thus, we will go back to the original track layout.



made some changes to meet the standards clown

____________________________________________________________________________________
2010JAN25 UPDATE

we were ask to divide the track in two to give way for the off-road track. so now we have 20X30 meters for each, on-road and off-road. ive already done some few sketches for the onroad track but im afraid the track width stays at 3.5m.



____________________________________________________________________________________
2009DEC07 UPDATE

revised layout based on drivers comments..




After a week of planning we’re finally done with the proposed layout for touring, drifting and drag
racing which we will be using for the comming automodex event.

FULL SIZE


Your comments and suggestions are welcomed. Feel free to offer any comments you may have about the layout. Suggestions on which materials to use. As of now i think this wont be a permanent one so its gonna be stored and be used for future events.

i might change the direction counter clockwise to place the pit entry on a slower part of the track.. much more safer i think.

@jon lets make this event a good one so autodrome would make it a permanent one :Clown:

i reckon you should leave it the way it is!

like you said before, we arent gonna be pitting as part of the race so should be fine....

Post on Tue Feb 09, 2010 2:45 pm by Jay
yup the use of pit stops during a race is gonna be rare.. cars pitting in would definetly slow down.. what concerns me is cars crashing into the pits lol
a fast straight is pointed into the pits.. what do you think?

i think your right paul.. i guess everyone would just have to learn the track. i like it too the way it is clown

i see your point lol... but i reckon it should be fine...

if we're not using the pits during races it shouldnt be an issue...i reckon there'll be plenty crashes all over the track so its not gonna make any difference...hahaha

I like the layout, having a long start finish straight will make things a lot of fun.

If this goes well, do you think there could be a more regular event at the autodrome? It seems like there is a lot of empty space around the autodrome which is barley used, so they may be interested in having a semi permeant track

im not sure about autodrome in making this one a permanent track for rc fanatics, but im sure about DEO that this will not be the last. what would they do with all the track equipments like the lap timming system, rubber track materials, driver stand etc. those stuff really costs a lot, i hope they're not planning on stocking it up in some warehouse in sharjah and let it rot clown

lets hope we have an overwhelming response for the automodex show, and maybe just maybe someone will see the following RC has and decides to support us!

its a long shot but hopefully we can loads of people down and involved....like jay says it would be sad to see all that stuff go to waste....

Jay,

Here's a poser for you...we need to check where the bridge start/finish is going to be in relation to the drivers stand or race director/scorer....remember we only have about 50ft of cable so it needs to be fairly available....

Re: Proposed AutomodEx Race Track
Post on Wed Feb 10, 2010 10:54 pm by Jay
andy ive indicated locations which i think is best for the bridge on the email ive sent just now. option1 is located on the last corner before entering the pits and the second option is located infront of the drivers stand crossing the pits aswell.. with the 2nd option we need to have a longer bridge and more sensors.

btw we should give robert the infos regarding bridge requirements too.

Well,

I have just seen the entrants for the Automodex gig, and I have to say, I am nothing short of disappointed......seems to me there is a LOT of HOT AIR on this site, a lot of bartering, trading (insults and goods, but no paint) and all sorts of rubbish....but most of all, I am pretty tired of hearing people WHINGE, COMPLAIN and MUTTER-MUTTER about how nobody ever GIVES you a track, PAYS for you to come and ride on it, and give you FREE presents to boot....!!!
No wonder that trak in Creek Park closed down! Because NOBODY got off their BACKSIDES to do anything about it....

There are a handful of people here who seem keen, some old, some young, but by and large it seems like an empty promise.

Go check your calendar, make some arrangements, and get involved....we could even use some VOLUNTEERS who would be willing to get their hands dirty.....stand up and be counted!!

Here we have some interested party, upon whom we can push the hobby into the light and get people to come and join, and hardly anyone from here has entered...???

I am an older representative, perhaps the younger ones will understand when I say...

OMG......FTW......WTF?????

If ANYONE would like to join this event, take the time to register.....OR send me a mail with your details and you can be manually entered....just do it...


CLASSES
DRIFT ADVANCED 5
DRIFT NOVICE 2
GT MODIFIED (Outlaw) 5
GT STOCK (Mayhem) 7
MINI 7
NITRO MOD 2
NITRO STOCK 1
TOTAL ENTRANTS 17

Come on guys this is really bad, to be honest we have more guys running on a regular Saturday!

Please tell spread the word and let's make this a success!

Re: Proposed AutomodEx Race Track
Post on Tue Feb 16, 2010 2:40 am by Jay
thats what ive been trying to tell everyone.. if we want to make this event a success, we have to register on every class we want to participate in at the automodex website. or else this wont happen again or might not happen at all.

me and reck was told by majdi and robert not to race cause were gonna do this and do that during the event, so we never did register on any of the classes. but we want to race too you know, so still we have our hopes and prepare our kits for each class we plan on joining in and while doing that we were also helping the automodex guys in preparing the event.

so since our last meeting with the automodex together with andy.. i think we might be able to join the races aswell.. that is if everyone helps and gets to be race comitees when they're not racing.

I already offered to help out once, never heard anything back, so I'll offer again now.
As for the race days, I don't think it's much effort for people to all pitch in, we are all there anyway and when we are not racing we are just standing.
Marshal, Official, Kit inspections, Race commentator, what ever.........

Greg,

Help accepted.....Race Commentator sounds like your game very happy cheers!

Its not really just the help, I am more conerned that we have 17 people participating....and 5 of them are Nitro guys, and not regulars amongst us.....that's whats weird...understandably, some are in Al-Ain, Abu Dhabi and Oman..(as well as some peeps from overseas) but surely we cn do better than 17...?? I also understand the youngsters that cannot get there etc, but they should get their parents to get involved LOL

Anyway, I think I have added a few extras ....so all things being good, we could probably fill 10 racers in each class....its the drifters that are looking a bit 'thin on the ground'

i've registered eathan a long time back. . . in 3 events. . . and i've even set my annual leave for 2010 on those dates. . (how involved is that? smile )

If there are no issues regarding me being a parent of one of the competitors, i can also help judging the drift competition. . . .

And if they can provide a 2m x 2m area there, and dump a bunch rocks to it,. . . i'd be more than happy to show crawling demos with paul smile

i know i already registered in 2 events... drifting and GT (stock and outlaw) at automodex site but not sure if it went thru.. smile

is there anyway we can see if our names are in the list?

Re: Proposed AutomodEx Race Track
Post on Tue Feb 16, 2010 11:25 am by cathurga
I have all the names, they were provided to me because I need to set up the heats etc, so I know who is registered and who is not. cool

Anyway, I may have increased the numbers to about 21 and we are SLOWLY getting it together.


Richard, your help will be appreciated and Eathan is registered in the events. I am sure the judging offer will be appreciated, given your command of the skill....

@Jay and Eric, I know you are members of the comittee....but you are also racers and you will be racing.... smile ..(even if you have to drive badly and let others win....)
