ClassesA big change for 2018 is a new slimmed down IKF Road Race class listing. Some classes have been combined, some expanded, and some eliminated. Any eliminated class has been rolled into one of the combined classes. Everyone will still have a class to run in. Everyone will still have at least two opportunities to race each day. Nothing has changed there. NCK will incorporate this new class list into the balance of the 2018 season beginning with Laguna[M1] . The new list is now posted to our website under the classes tab. The new race day schedule is also posted. If you were in a class that phased out, your Sonoma points will be migrated to the new class that replaces it. Please take the time to understand your class number. They have changed.
- Let’s say for instance you are now class 16. Your second entry class will be 16A. For Laguna your 3rd entry will be 16L. Class 16 and 16A will always be points races. 16L is Laguna only and will not count for points.
- It will be important to know and understand this when you register in DLB.
MembershipDLB will open January 1st for 2018 NCK annual membership and permanent number renewal. 2017 permanent numbers will be held till Feb 15, 2018 and then released on a first come first serve basis. Due to our tax status everyone must be a club member. Either as a yearly membership, or a one race only membership.
- Annual Membership (with permanent numbers) will be $130.
- One race membership will be $75.
Race FeesThe race day entry fees cover our track costs for each event.
2018 race fees will be set on a track by track basis rather than a one fee fits all. Based on historic entry numbers and current track rates NCK entry fees for 2018 will be as follows:
- Thunderhill West stays the same, $275 AYCR and $195 single entry
- Thunderhill 3 mile, $290 AYCR and $200 single entry
- Sonoma, $300 AYCR and $225 single entry
- Laguna Seca will have a maximum entry of 4 classes per person over 2 days $500, 1 day up to 4 classes $300, Single 1 day entry $225. ½ garage will be $150.
Bring a FriendFor any of the Thunderhill events NCK will offer a “First time road racer” special. Become a member at $150 and your first race is free. This applies only to Thunderhill events. Help your club to grow to reduce everybody’s cost to race.
Help Your Club Reduce Your Cost to RaceNCK would also like to institute a new opportunity this year. We know some folks don’t race every event. For those who don’t always race but would like to be involved we have a plan. Volunteer to help at the race. . In exchange for your help you will receive a DLB credit of $125 towards your next entry. We always need people to help on grid, towing, and scales We have to compensate people for these duties anyway so it may as well be a racer. This opportunity will be available for 2 to 4 people per event on a first come first served basis.
I’d like to thank all of our racers, workers and their families for being a part of NCK. I look forward to a fun, safe and enjoyable 2018 season for everyone.
