been to the track to play and it is a great place. now lets all get over to help the new track grow. cant wait to have the trophy race. should be fun.see you there.

thropy race

This is going to be one of the best racers this year. brand new track no bumps . the owner is working real hard to make it the best race ever. You have to like that. Two hours fro k/n in ct or under if you drive like me.
Hey Bojo...any discussion on what the weekly racing will be...what day ect.....Coming from Mass....I could be there often depending on what day...
I hear oval racing is planned for Sundays starting in November. With on-road racing being run on Saturdays. The owner had mentioned some races being planned for before the November points series starts. I think the only one scheduled so far is the trophy race. It is a very nice place. I was impressed when I made the trip up to check it out. It is clean and well organized. And most importantly the owner is a very nice guy. I look forward to spending some Sundays in Maine this winter.

Hello everyone,

I thought I would chime in with a few answer to your questions.

First- All racers must be R.O.A.R members to race at our facility. The cost for a new member is $25 for a year if you sign up at Maximus.

Second - Sunday will be the day for oval racing and it will start early. We will be releasing our schedule on Sept 1st so sign up for our eList and get it before it is even posted on the web. eList Link - www.teammaximus.com/images_pop/carpet.html

Thanks for the interest in our facility - Maximus

ROAR Membership

I'm just curious, why would you force anyone that wants to race at your track to become a ROAR member ??? We were planning on coming down for your SOS race but, are now rethinking it because we would not be racing there on a weekly basis so, we have no other use for the ROAR membership. Let me know, thank you.

Bob T
I know you understand my concern Dennis....Fact is there is a few guys that

sundays are not good for...I would think the K/N regulars would stay next to thier home track on Sundays....Who would want to drive 4+ hrs the day before

going back to work when within 20 min;s or so they are at K/N....Anyway..I will make as many races as I can because we need to support our Hobby shops

in New England....I just wish everyone didnt race the same day....see you in a couple of weeks

I am glad to hear that you are thinking about coming to our S.O.S event.

If you are a ROAR member and you are racing at a ROAR affiliated track (Maximus R/C Raceway) you receive the following:

$1,000,000 Liability Insurance protection
$10,000 Accident Medical Insurance

Simple Example: Racer is corner marshaling and trips and breaks his/her arm (a random accident). That racer would have $10,000 Accident Medical Insurance Coverage through ROAR.

We feel that is a reasonable amount of coverage for $25 a year.

Thanks again and I do hope you choose to race at our track. - Maximus

If I were a ROAR member which, I used to be, then according to ROAR rules, pg 17 paragraph 2-82 under Awards, I would not be able to race in the S.O.S. event because, you are awarding CASH prizes which is against ROAR affiliation. I'm not trying to be a jerk and I don't have anything against ROAR. I think, I see why you are requiring people to sign up for a ROAR membership and I hope that your track is very successful because it looks like a very nice facility. Good Luck

Bob T

This is not a Roar Sanctioned Event, with that being said, does that rule still apply or only in effect relevant to Nationals, Regionals Events etc? I don't have a rule book, so I cannot refer to that paragraph.

That is a good question but, if your going to be a track where you must have a ROAR membership to race, you would think that every event run at the track would be run by ROAR rules, maybe not ?? I just thought that if were trying to be a ROAR track and they don't afiliate with racing for CASH, why would you ?? By the way, ROAR rules are on the web at; www.roarracing.com This is just my 2 cents
