REAR Guidelines and TBO Info

Post by Chris Taylor » Tue Aug 28, 2018 10:54 am

Hello All,
I will be attending The Big One for the first time and have a few questions regarding the guidelines, etc.
-Are the guidelines listed somewhere or is there a flyer posted that will explain the requirements? I see a flyer for 2017 but not 2018. Mainly concerned with making sure my Kart will meet the safety requirements.
-The 2017 Flyer lists the Classes. I'm running a Mac 49 on a 1964 Rupp Kart so I'll assume the "Classics" class is where I'd fit?
Thank you for any feedback and I apologize if this information is listed somewhere and I just couldn't find it.
Chris

Hi Chris
We usually run 3 sessions. Kids / dead axle, single, twin. They run about 10-15 minutes each depending on how many karts are on the track and how many karts are waiting to get on the track.

Look your kart over well. Make sure everything is safety wired & cotter keyed. Then when you get to the track ask a neighbor to go over your kart while you go over his.

Skinny hard tires only.

See you soon!

Chris,

The 2018 Guidelines are the same as they have always been. We have a real simple approach, we run old karts the way they ran them from the beginnings of karting up to 1972. We basically run period correct equipment on skinny hard tires, its that easy.

R.E.A.R is not a racing squad and TBO is not a racing event like some others. We run controlled hot lap sessions, we have a kart show, we offer free lunch and drinks all weekend long and we have a huge swap meet and.....we have FUN !

If you have a 64 Rupp with a Mc 49 on skinny tires you will fit right in.

Hope to see you in a few days, stop by and introduce yourself.

R.E.A.R.
