There will be 55 race teams accepted for the 2015 Air Race Classic.  Once the 55th team is accepted, there will be a waitlist.  Waitlisted entries will be taken up to April 1. Waitlisted teams will be selected in order of acceptance until May 1 if any of the 55 accepted teams withdraws.

Entry Discounts for Non-Competition Entries – ARC will continue to provide a 20% discount off the ARC entry fee for teams that wish to enter the Non-Competition Class of the race.

Entry Number Drawing - To be eligible for a race number, an entry must contain your team applications plus photographs, pilot documents, and entry fee (See Registration Kit Instructions and ARC Rules for details) and be accepted.  ARC Entry Administration will accept an application for the ARC when the application  is determined to be complete. An airplane entry is not necessarily part of that initial entry, but must be submitted by April 1. All entries that have been accepted  prior to February  14 will be eligible to be entered in the “Top Ten Drawing” held on February 21. Ten entries will be randomly drawn and assigned the first ten race numbers. Once the ten numbers have been assigned, the remainder of the race numbers will be  assigned by the date in the order they were accepted.   

You may also want to register, free, for our FORUM. There you can discuss race issues and ideas with other racers, and you can search for a race mate - a pilot, co-pilot or teammate. The FORUM is available to all who are interested in the Air Race Classic.

The Air Race Classic Board of Directors publish a newsletter periodically, during the months leading up to the annual race. If you would like to subscribe to the ARC eFlyby, click this link.
