New Solo Test and Tune Date Added!
We’ve reserved the TMS bus lot on August 13th for a pre-nationals test and tune event. This is a great opportunity to do that final tweaking and setup on your car before heading off to Topeka in September.
If you’re serious about heading to Nationals this year, you already know about the new location at Heartland Park. This will be the first time in many years that the annual gathering of top drivers will take place at a location other than Forbes Field. Heartland Park Topeka (HPT) has a brand new high quality blacktop surface that will allow course designers a lot more freedom than was available with the patchwork concrete at Forbes. Those who have driven it already say it’s a little green – meaning it doesn’t have the stickiest surface yet.
Here’s your chance to get in some practice on a similar surface. The bus lot is famous for not having the stickiest surface too, but you don’t have to drive all the way to Kansas to experience it. The cost is $40, and that gives you access to the site to make as many runs as you need. We’ll have timing equipment set up so you can verify that your tuning is helping, and you’ll be able to come and go as you please. There are no scheduled heats or fixed number of runs.
Entries will be limited to 50 drivers, and you must pre-register online to participate. There will be no walk up registration. Preference will be given to those who are competing at Nationals this year, but if we don’t get 50 drivers signed up, we’ll open up the test/tune to anyone who would like to participate.
