Pylon Racing , Calgary July 28 & 29
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
The annual Calgary pylon race is scheduled for next week end (July 28 & 29). On Saturday Q500 will be raced and on Sunday Q40 will be raced. To register for the event go to the CPPRA web site ( https://sites.google.com/site/cppradistrict3/home ). Racers must register by July 26th as the matrix will be made up at that time.
The race notice found on the CPPRA site has directions to the CMPRA (Calgary Miniature Pylon Racing Associations) field.
New pilots to pylon racing are welcome, the Q500 class is an intermediate pilot entry level event, see the MAAC pylon regulations for rules.
Note the racing rules in the MAAC regs are for the Canadian 500 class. The rules used in our district have a couple engine preferences, that being the Nelson Short Stroke Q500 - 40 (with mini pipe removed) and the Jett Sport 40. Other engines that are often used by beginners include the Webra Speed 40. Pilots new to pylon can be entered with an engine that meets the conditions described in the MAAC regs, just advise the race officials at time of registration.
