2012 Tire Rack SCCA Peru National Tour
|Registration Closed:||July 30, 2012 8:00 AM CDT|
If the grip were any higher at Peru, we would not be able to walk the course.
After a few years away, the National Solo Series returns to the high grip concrete in Peru Indiana. This weekend promises to be a jammed packed event as it is the one of the last chances to get dialed in to concrete before heading to Lincoln. Sam Strano has been tagged as the course designer for the event so look for a classic Sammy course blending fast, flowing elements with sections that require just a touch of patience and discipline. The surface at Peru has taken a bit of a beating over the years, but Indy Region’s Raleigh Boreen has reported that efforts to patch the site have been successful and it is better than ever. Most competitors will opt to stay in near by Kokomo to be near restaurants and pubs, while you are there check out the food and fresh brews at the Half Moon Resturant and Brewery.
The competition at a National Tour takes place over two days on two separate courses, like Solo Nationals. The first day, competitors each get three runs or chances to drive one of the courses and on the second day they get three runs on the other course. Like any other Solo competition, runs are timed to 1/1000th of a second and knocking a cone down means a penalty of 2 seconds added to that time. The best times from each course are added together for the final class standings. All classes at National Tours are the same, standard Solo classes that you’ll find at Solo Nationals and as defined by the SCCA in the Solo Rulebook.
Registration Fee $102. After July 30, 2012, 12pm CDT all entries must be faxed or scanned to the National office. A non-refundable fee of $138.00 is due for entries received after 12pm CDT.
