Les Slingshots à temps plein au RPM en 2016 !!

Les Slingshots à temps plein au RPM en 2016 !!

Bonne nouvelle pour tous les amateurs et les pilotes de Slingshots; ils seront une des classes locales du  RPM Speedway en 2016 ! C'est donc dire qu'ils seront en action lors de tous les programmes à l'horaire pour la prochaine saison.


De plus, étant donné qu'on s'attend à avoir un nombre record de pilotes en tant que régulier de la classe Slingshot, il a été décidé d'alterner entre la grande et la petite piste pour la saison 2016. Les pilotes seront donc en action sur la petite piste 1 programme sur 2 et ils seront sur la grande piste de ¼ de mille pour la balance des courses à l'horaire.


Ce changement va permettre à nos jeunes pilotes de se développer encore plus rapidement, alors qu'ils devront s'adapter à différentes conditions de pistes et bien entendu à la grandeur de celle-ci également, ce qui est un atout important.


Pour tenter du même coup d'améliorer encore plus le spectacle, la petite piste du centre sera de nouveau agrandie. Après avoir incliné les courbes l'automne dernier, nous allons maintenant élargir l'intérieur des courbes pour que ce soit plus large et plat. On parle d'un agrandissement d'environ 8-10 pieds dans les lignes droites et de 15 pieds dans les courbes.


Le fait d'agrandir la piste va donner deux belles lignes de courses égales aux pilotes, ce qui risque de donner un spectacle de grande qualité. C'est également l'idéal pour accommoder un plus grand nombre de voitures comme ce sera le cas en 2016.

Tim Kerr Collects a Super DIRTcar Series Payday in North Carolina

Tim Kerr Collects a Super DIRTcar Series Payday in North Carolina

By Jim Clarke, Clarke Motorsports Communications/First Draft Media


A single checkered flag has made a huge difference in Tim Kerr's Super DIRTcar racing career. The 29 year-old from Picton, Ontario claimed Big Block Modified win – Sunday, November 8th – in the World Finals event at Charlotte, North Carolina.


Running weekly on the ovals of Central New York against some of the best in the business and on the highly competitive Super DIRTcar Series, Kerr – who works as a carpenter at his family's Prince Edward County construction business – scored a mid-season feature win and finished 17th in points at Brewerton Speedway. From there, his confidence grew as the team looked for even more success.


"It's a busy year with a lot of travelling," confided Kerr, whose schedule begins during the annual swing through Florida in February. "We're usually the only Canadian team in the field at almost every show we run. When the tour stops at tracks like Brockville, Cornwall and Merrittville we get a chance to enjoy some home cooking, but for the most part we stand alone in the crowd."


The Big Block Modifieds – along with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car and Late Model teams – were slated to run a pair of shows that would determine the 2015 championships during the season ending spectacular at the dirt track adjacent to Charlotte Motor Speedway. After failing to advance to the Friday, November 6th main event through his heat race or last chance qualifier, Kerr used a provisional spot to take the green flag in the 40 lap finale, where he'd advanced to 19th at the checkered flag. Kerr says that when inclement weather delayed the weekend's final round of action, it was actually a blessing in disguise.


"We could have taken a day off, but instead the crew went to work and made some changes on the car," said the driver. "We wanted to end the year on a positive note and that meant getting everything we could out of the last show of the season. The goal of everyone in the field is to race their way into the main event. Taking a provisional for the first night wasn't the way we wanted things to happen, so we clearly needed to put our ducks in a row."


The #07 Hubert Kerr Construction, C.F. Evans Lumber Company – Picton, The Bronskill Group, Greenbush Electric, Picton Home Hardware Building Centre, The Main Stop – Picton and Threadworks Custom Embroidery – Deseronto Bicknell Racing Products machine, powered by an Enders Racing Engine qualified for Sunday'sheadline event with a 2nd place finish in the third heat and after some last-minute adjustments by his crew, hit the track for the 'A' main.


After following Australian Peter Britten who led the first 30 laps, Kerr – who began his career in a couple of different divisions at Brighton Speedway – took advantage of a slight miscue by the Aussie to take a lead he would never relinquish, on the way to a payday worth $8,000 and his first career Super DIRTcar Series victory.


"This is easily the biggest win of my career and luckily I'll have the entire off-season to let it sink in," admitted Kerr. "I hope we'll be able to carry this momentum into the 2016 season."
