Three Classes. One Goal.

The United Sportscar R/C Racing Championship is the first R/C racing event of its kind that will pit three different classes of cars all against each other at the same time!

The event will take place November 9, 2014 at "The Track" @ Harbor Hobbies.

1225 Sheridan Rd.
Winthrop Harbor, IL 60096

The premise is simple. The event will begin like an ordinary R/C race. Each class will compete in two rounds of qualifying and one main. After all three classes have completed they're respected mains, the top four drivers from each classes A & B Mains that have shown they have the patience and skill to continue, will compete in one of two finale races called the "Harbor Grand Prix". The "A" Main Grand Prix will be 12 minutes long, the "B" Main will be 10 minutes. Racers will be competing for awards in they're individual class, as well as a single overall winner for the Grand Prix.

This event will introduce a fun twist on a popular touring car class. Prototypes! This class utilizes the same rules used in traditional Stock 17.5 Touring Car classes, the only change being the use of McAllister Daytona Prototype bodies instead of the typical touring car bodies!

The three classes competing were picked not only because they mimic the look and feel of real multi-class endurance series like IMSA or Le Mans, but they're typical lap times are fairly similar on the carpet track! This should make for close, competitive racing across the board!
