-We primarily race on weekends, about once or twice a month.
-Races usually last all day, from about 10:00am to 4:00pm.
-Safety teams will be on site to enforce safe flying procedures.
-All pilots are invited to come fly at KCMR races provided they have an active AMA membership.
Racing excitement consists of 2-6 groups of 3-8 pilots racing at once. We tend to complete a handful of rounds at every race, so bring all your necessary tools to keep you in the air for a whole day of flight! We usually score pilots based on the amount of completed laps for the whole day, but could also score based on fastest lap. Sometimes we will implement double elimination brackets for the REAL racing excitement!
KCMR will now provide classes for each pilot to join based on their individual skill level.
BEGINNERS will have access to the track just the same as any pilot, but will only be required to go through the start/finish gate. All other gates and flags are optional. These pilots can use the race to simply practice flying at their own speed. Use this class to practice flying and getting the feel of what a race track is like. (Please sign up in the Novice class and let the race director know if you will be planning on flying at this level)
NOVICE class will be for pilots who are ready to compete for a podium spot. This class will feature its own Novice route within the whole track for pilots to easily fly a course. All gates and flags (within this simplified course) will be required and these pilots will compete for the podium as well as prizes!
SPORT class will be for the intermediate pilots, and will feature the entire course as it is set-up. This class will include all pilots who are ready to compete against other Sport class pilots for a podium spot. Once a Sport class pilot wins AT LEAST 3 races, he or she will be advanced into the Pro class.
PRO class will be for the fastest pilots of the club, and the country. These pilots must have finished 1st in 3 KCMR races, or 1st in any larger national event (MultiGP, DRL, etc.) This class will ALSO compete for a podium spot with other Pro pilots. Please make sure to join the event on MultiGP and select the appropriate class.

Things to consider as you prepare for a race:
- Joining the race on MultiGP is crucial for the race system. Please join at least one day before the event to ensure the best racing experience.
- We check-in all our pilots before EACH race to verify their video channels, video output, and even AMA membership status. Please come prepared!
- 25mw will be the MAXIMUM video output. Please make sure you have a capable VTX and have your quads adjusted accordingly!
- Please show up to the race early enough to get your pits set-up as well as join our team with the course set-up!
