Back in 2011, our vision was to create the finest RC racing series on the planet and with carefully selected tracks and closely working with our sponsors, we united to create the first TRUE indoor nationwide series the United States has ever seen and the JConcepts Indoor National Series was born. Looking forward to 2019, JConcepts is proud to present another incredible year of the JConcepts Indoor National Series. After 8 established seasons, the INS has attracted over 12,000 entries with the goal of bringing the best RC racing experiences to the masses.
New to the 2019 season, JConcepts recognizes the growing popularity of carpet and astroturf racing around the US and has partnered up with some amazing tracks to bring you an all new carpet / astro racing experience called the 2019 JConcepts National Carpet / Turf Series. Our primary goal is to bring the best racing experience to all racers no matter the skill level, but also to promote and grow the hobby by focusing on various aspects of the RC racing experience.
Most importantly, our goal is to provide a positive, fun atmosphere for all to enjoy.
- Feature Factory drivers at every race including past and present world champions and national champions to add appeal and attraction.
- To provide a terrific opportunity for manufacturers, sponsors, vendors, and drivers to have a personal level of engagement with core customers for positive rapport.
- Racers have unparalleled access to Factory representatives and industry icons for amazing support and interaction.
- Promotion through social media avenues with video interviews, live racing feeds, and event photos for maximum brand exposure and impact.
We invite the manufacturers, industry affiliates and most importantly, the racer, to participate in these national series events. JConcepts has put forth a great deal of resources to ensure the highest level event possible by undertaking monetary travel expenses, creating custom banners and backdrops, event shirt print and shipping, event promotion, as well as providing industry leading coverage to professionally represent RC racing on a global level.
Please review the attached materials including a brief overview of the series and complete 2019 schedule.
New for 2019 –
In 2018 JConcepts introduced the Independent 17.5 buggy class intended for non-sponsored drivers. The class is limited to 30 entries and utilizes a controlled tire program to make things simple for the racer. For 2019, together with series sponsor, HobbyWing, the Independent class will now feature a 21.5 hand-out motor program.
After careful research, we’ve determined that Independent drivers enjoy the ease of a vehicle which is easier to drive. Utilizing a 21.5 motor, it now allows the young and veteran racer to produce sharper lap-times and less crashes over a complete qualifier or race. Together with the HobbyWing 21.5 motor and controlled tires, it reduces two of the most intimidating factors of competing in a race event.
The JConcepts | HobbyWing Independent 21.5 buggy class = More fun on track and less worry in the pits.
