How to Enter the Air Race Classic
Begin by ordering a Racer Registration kit. The kit, which includes entry worksheets, racer requirements, plane requirements and rules of the Air Race Classic, costs $30. This fee is applied to your entry fee, should you choose to enter the race. Upon receipt of your request for an entry kit, and your payment of $30, the Racer Registration Kit will be sent to you by email. These documents will be available on the website, in a password-protected area. You will receive instructions for online forms entry soon after submitting your request for an entry kit.
Review all the general race information in the Racer Registration Kit. Then organize a team and airplane that meet the ARC 2013 entry qualifications, fill out your entry worksheets, and following instructions received with the Racer Registration Kit, enter your application online via the website www.airraceclassic.org. Applications will be accepted from January 2-April 1. Late registration is available till April 15 with Board of Directors authorization and a late fee. Start preparing now! If you have questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be 55 race teams accepted for the 2013 Air Race Classic. Once the 55th team is accepted, there will be a waitlist. Waitlisted entries will be taken up to April 1. Waitlisted teams will be taken in order prior to May 15 if any of the 55 accepted teams withdraws.
Entry Discounts for Non-Competition Entries – ARC will continue to provide a 20% discount off the ARC
entry fee for teams that wish to enter the Non-Competition Class of the race.
Entry Number Drawing - To be eligible for a race number, an entry must contain your team applications plus photographs and entry fee
(See Registration Kit Instructions and ARC Rules for details) and be accepted. ARC Entry Administration will accept an application for the ARC when the application is determined to be complete. An airplane entry is not necessarily part of that initial entry,
but must be submitted by April 1. All entries that have been accepted prior to February 15 will be eligible to be entered in the “Top Ten Drawing” held on February 23. Ten entries will be randomly drawn and assigned the first ten race
numbers. Once the ten numbers have been assigned, the remainder of the race numbers to date will be
assigned by the date their entry was received.
You may also want to register, free, for our FORUM. There you can discuss race issues and ideas with other racers, and you can search for a race mate - a pilot, co-pilot or teammate. The FORUM is available to all who are interested in the Air Race Classic.
