Default Update for the Eliminator Air Race of October 2, 2022

Some have requested that a Platinum class and / or Unlimited class be added to Warbird racing events. Although there has been much debate over the years, we have decided to “test the waters”. At the Eliminator Air Race of October 2, 2022 we will take Preregistrations for either a Platinum class (1:20 breakout) or an Unlimited class (no breakout) or both. To register please email me at [email protected]. I will then post the registered pilots on the WarbirdRacing.org website. Entry fees and prize money will be discussed between those that enter the race.



Additionally, we are contemplating the idea of running 2 races on the weekend of October 1-2, 2022. Saturday we will host a standard Eliminator event; 3 rounds of Qualifying and then Eliminations. Sunday we will reset and run a new Eliminator race; 3 rounds of Qualifying and then Eliminations. This means that you will have 2 opportunities to win an event. Or if you are good enough, you can win both events. Each event will have its own entry fees and prize monies. We feel that this will add value to your investment for a weekend of racing. One key factor to this decision, is the electric timing system.



That brings us to an update on the development of the electric timing system. We have completed a test heat (with one airplane) where the prestart clock, staging clock and all 10 laps were completed without having a lap judge push a timing button. With a proof of concept in place we have ordered the hardware needed to implement this concept. We should have a working start finish line within a month.



Currently we have 22 entries for this event. I know it’s early, and some plans may change, but preregistration is very helpful when planning these events.
