Title: New Track (Arkansas 2018) License questions
Post by: shiphteey on December 13, 2017, 04:46:11 PM
Greetings, glad to log in and see that the ECTA ain't dead and 2018 looks like a GO  :mrgreen:

I'm presuming the "record book" gets wiped away and we are all starting from ZERO and all records are OPEN...is this the case?

How about licenses...surely A license riders don't have to start all over at 125  :roll:.... right?   :evil:

Have a good holiday everyone, stay warm....debating this trip as its about the same distance as Loring for me...but something new and bumping into hold heads  8-)

A.

Why would they start a new record book at a different venue?  The NHRA doesn't have records for every venue.  I realize running up in class and no real certification make some records in ECTA suspicious, but if you're only after record certificates, give me an email -- I can accommodate you at whatever venue, class and speed you need to impress yourself and your friends (cheaper than really having to run a vehicle!).

 All new records will be set at the new ECTA location. The class records set at Maxton and Ohio are not wiped away they still stand for those locations which are now officially closed. Each previous record included official record certs from the ECTA which arrive shortly after setting said records. As for the license detail last time we moved we were required to go down one speed step from our current ECTA license on the first pass to get the feel of the new location. After that it was all out if you passed that first run test correctly.

That's a shocker compared with the track record of the "big guy".

I figured they would mirror the previous precedent from NC to OH but didn't want to assume.  Thanks for clearing it up.  And yes I do remember they made everyone drop down 1 license class for shakedown runs.   :cheers:

I've got my hotel booked, so I will be there to race or to work (most likely, since my car is in a million pieces)!
