A list of classes and the event flyer with the pre-entry forms will be available in the next couple of weeks and will be available to download from the www.greensborocoliseum.com website or the King of the Concrete facebook page.

There will be no charge for fuel (gas). The event will utilize the Clone engine package for all divisions except for the UAS class. Seat height will be a non tech item. To be consistent with other indoor events, we will follow the following additional safety requirements. Weights must be bolted to the chassis or seat. The nerf bars are considered part of the chassis. For weights on the seat, you must use fender washers (large washers) under the bolt head. All weight bolts must be double nutted or safety wired. Do not attach weights to bodywork. Header bolts must be safety wired.

Safety is the overriding issue. If the Race Director or Tech Officials decide your weights are not safely attached, you will have to change them to suit the officials.

More exciting news will be coming in the next couple of weeks. Purses will increase or become guaranteed with the commitment from sponsors!
