Re: Simple Heat Racing System

Hi John, Just for clarification. Any racing scoring system used on RC events races under RRS shall comply with the RRS and there is no need for IRSA approval.

Re: Simple Heat Racing System

Hi John

Our proposal is to use SHRS on World and Europeans championship as these are IOMICA events administered by the IOMICA Class Championship Rules while we cannot and do not want to deal with any other racing system that may be used on national and lower level.

Re: Simple Heat Racing System

George, to answer your questions: 1. As scoring is the same for each heat you have overall results after each race in preliminary round. Therefore you can have results even with preliminary round only. Of course, it is always expected that you will do at least one race in for example two days of fin...
