Hello AMEC Iceracers,
The 2018 rule book has been updated and is posted to the AMEC website. Here is the link: http://icerace.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2018Rules.pdf
Don’t let the warm weather trick you into not preparing your car. Read the rules, buy/make your tires and get your car ready. We’ll be racing before you know it and we’re planning to hit the season early and hard! Our insurance requires us to buy a minimum of 4 race days so we may try to do a 2-day weekend as soon as we have ice to make sure we get at least 4 days in. Last year we didn’t use our 4th day and we’re not going to let that happen again.
We’re planning two weekends at Lake George! We’re on the official schedule for Feb 10-11 and Feb 24-25. Get excited, it’s a great venue!
We also plan to run a couple ice time trials on Saturdays if we can squeeze them in. This will be a run-what-you-brung event that will allow pretty much any 4-wheel vehicle, even UTVs!
AMEC VP and Street Legal Class Coordinator
If you register and the event is cancelled your registration fee will be automatically applied to the next race or can be refunded at your request. You don’t need to pay using MotorsportReg either, you can pay at registration on race day. Note that you need to come to registration and check in and sign the official waiver even if you register on MotorsportReg.
Welcome to the Adirondack Motor Enthusiast Club or A.M.E.C. as we like to refer to it. Established in 1954 A.M.E.C. has been racing on the frozen lakes of northeastern New York State for more than 50 years now. We offer a variety of motorsport’s events throughout the year focusing mainly on Ice Racing.
Ice Racing is one of safest and most economical forms of road racing available today. This season we will offer 9 classes of wheel to wheel action (weather permitting). There is room for almost any car or driver on our varied length road course circuits. Participation can vary from from 40-75 drivers per event.
This seasons race cars will range from bone stock Street Legal Class cars all the way up to purpose built tube chassis ice racing machines. See rules for further descriptions of classes. With our crew of hardy volunteers we offer a winter racing experience that can not be matched. Our No-Contact Street Legal Classes are broken into four groups, one for un-studded snow tires on 2 wheel drive cars or for All wheel drive cars and the same types of cars running on studded tires available from Nokian Tire as the Hakkapeliita 7, 8 or 9 model. Our race stud cars run tires from a number of manufacturers or can be hand built in your own garage. Please see rules for details.
This season we will offer 2 heat races for each class, generally running for 20 minutes in length as well as a Finale race which will be about 25 minutes in length. That’s over 1 hour of seat time in competition not including practice at the beginning of the day. Weather and ice conditions may affect schedule.
Races are normally held on Sunday only with several full weekend events added to the schedule as they are available. Please join us and check out the “Getting Started In Ice Racing” link located on the menu bar.
