Thread: Unlimited course distance

    Default Unlimited course distance

    What is the official distance of the Unlimited course for timing and speed?
    I have been told two different distances from RARA and the website has old distance.
    RARA told me 8.1034 then I called back and they said 8.0851

    For 2012 the distance was 8.1034, for 2013 it has been changed to 8.0851. The numbers are from the Rules of Competition.

    thanks, trying to set up my stopwatch/speed indicator. It's older and kind of a pain when you are drinking!

    I would be very curious what was changed, from last year?

    2012 Rules of Competition:
    UNLIMITED CLASS: The Unlimited Class course is 8.1034 miles based upon a speed of 500 MPH and 3.5 Gs.
    2013 Rules of Competition:
    UWRC CLASS: The UWRC Class course is 8.0851 miles based upon a speed of 500 MPH and 4 Gs.

    They changed from using 3.5Gs in 2012 to using 4Gs in 2013. No reason was listed.
