The Reno Region uses a color-coded class consolidation method to help simplify run groups
and competition groups.
National Classes are grouped into Reno Competition Classes. National Classes compete against
each other within a Competition Class based on their associated PAX factors. Cars competing on
street tires (T) are given and additional factor of 0.975, excluding classes that require street
tires such as Street and Street Touring.
Competition Classes are assigned a Run Group Color which indicates when they will run during
the day at an event. The run ordering cycles after every event to allow all groups to run at
each time throughout the season. At the season half-way point, two groups are swapped in the
order to change group neighbors for the second half of the season.
For example, an event listing run groups as "GW,BY" will have group GREEN running first in the
morning while WHITE works, then WHITE running while GREEN works. After the lunch break, BLUE
runs while YELLOW works, then YELLOW runs while BLUE works.
Novice and Run-No-Points drivers do not run in a fixed Run Group and are assigned to a Run
Group the day of the event in order to best balance the groups.
The Run Groups for the 2017 season are listed below:
