Welcome to the YSAS Air Race.
In YSAS Air Race, competitors have to navigate a challenging obstacle course in the fastest time. Pilots fly individually against the clock and have to complete tight turns through a slalom course consisting of pylons, known as "Air Gates".
YSAS Air Race’s will take part alongside YSAS air shows. Every other YSAS air show will have a theme and the Sunday line up will include the YSAS Air Race. At every air show that the races take place points will be awarded, totalled up and at the end of the year the YSAS Air Race champion will be named. There are only 10 spots so hurry, but before you sign up you need to make sure that you can make the races and read the rules. Even if you don’t get in, apply anyway, because if a pilot miss more two races, their spot will be given to the next person in line, which could be you.
Everyone taking part in the YSAS Air Race will get their own Extra 300, in your own colours and if you want sponsor (sponsor will be simple text on the side e.g. YSFHQ).
1. Must follow the course, deviations will give you a 6 second penalty or disqualification (depending on how serious the deviation is).
2. 200 knot speed limit through the start gate, over speed will give you a 2 second penalty.
3. Hitting a gate will give you a 2 second penalty.
4. If you miss more two races, your spot in the championship will be given to the next person in line.
5. Air show dates will not be changed from the advertised date, if you are unable to make the race then you will score no points. Remember, miss two and you’re spot is given to someone else.
1st = 13 points
2nd = 11 points
3rd= 9 points
4th= 8 points
5th= 6 points
6th= 5 points
7th= 4 points
8th= 3 points
9th= 2 points
10th= 1 point
Other than the first round, the races will take place on the Sunday of a two day weekend air show. They will consist of three heats, in each heat people will be knocked out of this round and only the fastest go through. In round one the slowest six will get knocked out, round two will see the next slowest two pilots go leaving the final found to be battled out by the two fastest over all.
