Radios

Part way through the 2017 race season, USLCI made two way radios optional for all racers.  The rule only applies if the radios are approved by the track holding races.  Listed below is the rule for each track and any special requirements for spotter placement.

There are few guidelines for the use of the radios:
  • Racers using two-way must be able to hear race control through the normal Raceiver channel as years past.  This can be accomplished through the use of the USLCI splitter ($29.99 from Racing Electronics) or the new Raceiver with the splitter integrated ($109).  Failure to have the splitter equipment if using the radio will result in disqualification.
  • If not using a two-way radio, a Receiver or equivalent must be used by each driver. This for race control communications to the drivers as a group.  Failure to have a Raceiver will result in disqualification.
  • Two-way communications are allowed between a driver and a spotter but drivers may not communicate with each other using the radios.
  • All spotter must observer the races from the areas designated by each track.

Bandoleros:  2-way radios are not allowed for Bandoleros.  A Raceiver or equivalent must be used each time a driver is on the track.  This is for race control communications to the drivers as a group.  Failure to have a Raceiver will result in disqualification.. 

  • Colorado National Speedway - Radios are optional.  Spotters must be in the spotters area in the back stretch that is used by all other classes.

  • Big Country Speedway - Radios are optional.  Spotters must be in the top 4 rows of the aluminum bleachers in the pit area of turn 4

  • HiWay 92 Raceway  - Radios are NOT allowed unless all drivers have them and agree to use them.  Spotter areas, etc. will be determined if needed.

  • I-25 Speedway - Radios are optional.  Spotters must be in the designated spotter area in the back stretch bleachers. This area is at the top of the bleachers in the section closest to turn 3.
