2017 Spring Super Cup – Round 1 at Beachline Raceway

The 1st race of the Spring Super Cup Series kicked off the year with nearly 220 entries from all over Florida and the east coast in attendance for Florida’s first major race on astroturf! The weekend started off with some unscheduled rain on Friday, but luckily for the racers, round 1 was held at the massively covered Beachline Raceway in Cocoa Beach, Florida on January 14th – 15th.

After Saturday morning practice, racers had 1 qualifying round that started at 12:30pm and another round on Sunday morning. Typically, the Super Cup is a one-day affair, but shortly after the round was over, the JConcepts awards banquet was held for 2016 Fall Super Cup and racers were treated to prizes, drinks, and good laughs.

Top three Stock vehicles will be tech inspected by authorized personnel after each Main. Any Stock vehicle found not to be in “Blink” mode will be disqualified from competition.

2017 Rule Update - Independent Control Tire

The introduction of the Independent 17.5 class to the Super Cup Series has been a success. The Championship Series is adding another benefit to the class to lower overall costs while trying to equal the playing field. At no additional cost to the racer, JConcepts will be including a complete set of truck, buggy or SCT tires to drivers registering for the Independent classes.

The tires selected for each track will be based on performance and reliability while taking into consideration changing conditions throughout the event. Before each race, racers will tech their vehicles as usual and officials will inspect motor, weight, voltage and tires prior to the race. A spot post-tech will also be performed as usual to maintain consistency. Technical inspection will be looking for tread type and compound along with evidence of tampering. For tracks where slick tires are preferred, we are asking for tires to be at maximum "Reverse Mohawk" which shows some tread on the outsides during each inspection but a bald spot can be shown in the center.

In addition, replacement control tires will be available trackside at an additional discount from either the on-site location or technical inspection area at each race.

Control tire benefits

Less overall costs to independents
Equal playing field
Simplicity, no worries 

Short Course Classes

All 3.0” x 2.2” SCT tires are legal for Short Course (*Independent is control tire). Body trimming is allowed to minimize parachute effect but is limited to the body-lines and cut-outs intended for modification. Small circle cut-outs are allowed at the base of the windshield regardless per the ROAR Nationals. No complete windshield, side window or bed cutouts. Modified class is intended for the more experienced driver and is open to all manufacturer SCT trucks. In the SCT 4x4 class the motor is open, however, the battery is restricted to 2s Lipo as per the ROAR rules.

Over 40 2wd Open buggy

With an ever increasing number of veteran racers and fathers in attendance, an over 40 2wd Open class has been added. Designated as an Open Class we encourage drivers to run modified motors in the 7.5 to 10.5 range with standard 2s Lipo capability. Stock racers are welcome to run both stock and Over 40 but modified racers cannot race in both.

Open Truck Class

In an attempt to stimulate growth in a heritage class, the Series is going to group together the 17.5 expert stock trucks with the modified trucks in an open category. It has been shown, especially indoors there is not a lot of difference in speed between the 2 classes and this gives an opportunity for us to race them together. Of course the racer will eventually dictate the choice electrical setup indoors and out, however, this gives the class the ability to add some depth once again. 

Intended for stock and modified racers to race together

Open motor, can be anything ROAR legal
Open speed control settings / boost…etc. 
Open tire

Novice class

Run what you brung for kids and novice racers.  
Running the same vehicle in Novice and any other class by the same driver is not allowed.

Transponders

Competitors must have their own personal transponder. Handout transponders will not be provided.

Race Format

2 Qualifiers- 5 minutes long (Time schedule determined) 10 cars per qualifier
8 Cars per main with 2 bump ups – 10 car mains

The Super Cup series is split into two separately scored sessions, spring and fall. For 2017, the Spring session will run January through April.

Technical Inspection

The Super Cup Competition committee has stepped up with a much more stringent technical inspection for all 17.5 Stock classes.
Please be prepared to have the following aspects inspected prior to each qualifier and main event. 

There will be a ROAR rule observed pre-race technical inspection table that all 17.5 Stock classes must clear prior to the qualifier and main.  
Post-race tech is available in the event of a protest.  These rules are in place to ensure fairness of racing in the stock class; not to be a hindrance. 

 Pre-race inspection –

· Weight
· Battery voltage
· Speed control, blinky mode inspection
· 17.5 motor

 Post-race inspection – protest instituted

· Weight
· Stator resistance
· Motor tear down

Weather

Super Cup racing is typically held on Saturday. An effort will always be made to run the event on that single day. If one
complete round is completed it is an official race and points will be tabulated based on position. If it is impossible to race
on a Saturday, Sunday will be used as the make-up day. If a race is unsuccessful on Sunday than a make-up race will
be run at a date to be determined. Drivers will be given the option of a refund or to hold their entry for the future event.
