IMRRC Planning Feb. 10 Road Trip to Indoor Races
The International Motor Racing Research Center is planning some mid-winter fun with a road trip to the Area Auto Racing News Indoor Auto Racing Championship Series competition in Albany on Saturday, Feb. 10.
TQ Midgets are purpose-built open wheel cars powered by 636 or 750cc motorcycle engines modified for indoor racing. They develop top speeds in excess of 75 mph. TQs weigh approximately 825 pounds.
Slingshots are mini-Modifieds, and, in theory, are all identical. Each comes from one central source, Speedway Entertainment, and each uses a 600 V-Twin Briggs & Stratton engine. Very few variants to the “spec” car are permitted, according to Area Auto Racing News.
The road trip will offer round-trip, motorcoach transportation, with pick-up points in Horseheads and Binghamton, and reserved seating at Albany’s Times Union Center. Doors open at 5 p.m., with racing heats starting at 7 p.m.
Prices are $95 for current IMRRC members and $120 for non-members.
Reservations may be made by calling the IMRRC at (607) 535-9044 or emailing IMRRC Coordinator of Visitor Services and Outreach Kip Zeiter at email@example.com.
Seating is limited, and the deadline for reservations is Jan. 12.
