RETRO NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES MAKES MOTOR CHANGE


The RETRO National Championship Series has announced that it will make a major change to its motor policy heading into its second season of competition.

As of Jan. 1, 2015 the RETRO National Championship Series will switch to the non-rebuildable Pro Slot 4002-FK (PS-FK) motor in the Formula One/Indy and Can-Am classes. The PS-FK motor will be the only power plant permitted to be used in the two classes, and spec eight (8) tooth pinions will be mandated.

The RETRO National Championship consists of eight major races held through out the country, which culminates in the crowning of a true ‘King of Retro’ racing in two different driver classifications… All Star and Invitational.

“We made the decision to contest all of the national races using the PS-FK motor, because it levels the playing field and lowers costs for the racers,” said RETRO Executive Director Ron Hershman. “Several of our championship race venues had already made the decision to use the optional FK motor rule set, so it made sense to standardize things across the board heading into our second season.

The PS-FK motor has proven to be reliable, consistent and very equal in performance over the past year. In our opinion the PS-FK motor is by far the best of the low cost mini-motors currently available in the market place. It retails for only $14.00 and features a traditional end bell and external brushes, along with a triple –sealed tamper proof security system.”
