Just wondering does this affect Canada rules in anyway?

"2011 RC Pro Series Announcement

Even before our deal with Carlton to purchase RC Pro was finalized, we have been thinking about how to structure the 2011 racing schedule. From the beginning, it has occurred to us that 28 races plus the finals were just too many in light of the current economy in parts of the United States. We have kicked around several ideas and just kept coming back to the same one, feeling that it is the best way to bring more racers out to the events and keep it affordable for those feeling the effects of a recovering economy.

Entry fees for 2011 will remain the same. The race weekend schedule will remain the same.

For 2011, there will be no Divisions. There will be 16 qualifying events across the country. One race will qualify a racer for the International Finals, but a racer can take points into the Finals from his/her best two races. There is no limit on the number of races you can enter or where you choose to race. You can use your best two races from anywhere across the country. Racers will receive attendance points for three races. This number includes the Finals. 2011 will be a National Points Series with racers knowing how they stand overall nationally thru out the year.

New rules will be posted on the RC Pro website and we encourage all of you to review them. Changes for 2011 will be denoted in red, but you should take the time to familiarize yourselves with all the rules.

After reviewing the provisions of our liability insurance policy with our agent, we have verified that anyone competing in an RC Pro sanctioned event must be a current RC Pro member. We will have weekend memberships available for $5.00 per event, or you can purchase a full year charter membership for $20.00. RC Pro provides a $1M per occurrence/$2M aggregate liability insurance policy at all sanctioned events at no additional cost to tracks or racers. Current RC Pro membership is the only requirement.

We are waiting on final confirmation from a couple of tracks and, once we have that, we will post the dates and venues. We look for that to be by the end of this week.

The Finals will be the first week in November and will no longer be held at the Diamond W Arena in Alvarado. They will be held at Gulf Coast Raceway in Porter, Texas. These facilities are second to none and we believe everyone will enjoy the amenities that the area has to offer.

We are looking forward to a great 2011 season that will allow everyone to compete and enjoy the race schedule, as well as the Internationals. Susie and I want to thank you for your support and words of encouragement over the last few weeks. See you at the races!

David and Susie Lovett"
