T-34 Race

seasons ever.  Many of our past sponsors are joining us again as well as some new ones.  I look forward to another great year of racing.

The 2012 Triangle Series will be a new experience for everyone.   We have combined the World Models T-34 classes with some of the coolest and fastest Warbirds in the United States.   If you want to race, this is your series.   There is virtually a class for all experience levels of pilots.

The Classes for 2012 will be as follows:

*T-34 Mentor - Bronze (Novice), Silver (Open w/ prop restrictions) and Gold
(Open)*

(O.S. 46AX Engine and Thunder Tiger Pro .46 Engines only)

-    All Races Morgan Hill, Salinas & Fresno

*Unlimited Warbird* - (square inch wing area versus engine displacement – no breakout times)

Fresno & Morgan Hill Races Only

*46 Warbird* - (475 sq. in or bigger w/ .46 engine)

-    Salinas Race Only

Please refer to all the rules, guidelines and procedures for class specifications available at www.rcpylonracing.com

The 2012 season is going to have a fresh new look.   Racers are going to be able to enjoy the close racing and tough competition of the T-34 classes, followed by the scale resemblance of the Warbird class. We will host four races this year that will determine the Championship Point Series for T-34 Silver & Gold and Unlimited Warbird which should yield some great prizes.    The last and final race of the year will be a two day with lots of racing.

The Unlimited Warbird Class has new rules.   Aircraft will be based on the wing area/engine displacement guidelines and should follow and allow those running in the SAM and RC Pro divisions to race.  There will be no breakout times.

The T-34 will be primarily the same with the addition of the use of the Thunder Tiger Pro Engines.  You can now use O.S. or ThunderTiger engines.With the new classes; Bronze, Silver and Gold, should make for a great time.  The Bronze (Novice Class) and Silver Class will be restricted to complete stock airframes within the rules and with APC 10 X 5 Propellers *
only*.  Anyone wanting to fly Silver is allowed.  The Gold class will remain the same as in previous years.  Please refer to the 2012 Class Rules and Guidelines.

I would like to welcome some current sponsors at this time.   We are adding more every week.   The following companies and individuals are supporting the races. If you see them or talk to them, please thank them.

Here are the current sponsors:

Santa Clara County Model Aircraft Skypark

RCATS Systems

RC ACCENTS

Each individual race will be run under the same format.   Each race will consist of four qualifying rounds and a trophy race.   The final race of the year will consist of eight qualifying rounds and trophy races.  Each race will award trophies or plaques for 1st thru 3rd places in each class based on the results of the trophy races and in T-34 Gold and Unlimited Warbird, we will also have a Top Qualifier Award for the most points earned in the qualifying rounds prior to the trophy races. All the points earned in the trophy races and qualifying rounds will be added to the overall total for the Championship Series.

At the end of the year, those who have the highest total of points will be awarded for their accomplishment.   Championship Series winners in T-34 Silver, Gold and Unlimited Warbird will be awarded with trophies 1st through 3rd and prizes as allowed.  The prize value in each class will be determined by Sponsorships.  Unlimited will yield a higher value in prizes for 1st thru 3rd followed by T-34 Gold and T-34 Silver.
