SOAR 2017 – Round Six- September 29, 30 & October 1, 2017 – Screaming Alien

Gobble Gobble Gobble……..

Our first season at Grand Bend Motorplex was 2011. Myself being a typical man scheduled our last round for Thanksgiving weekend, completely by mistake. This was brought to my attention sometime in July but it was too late to change the date and we would just have to move forward.Well the SOAR Family decided that this was a great opportunity to make something epic out of a bad situation.

It was decided (not by me) that we should have a traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner for the entire SOAR paddock. A pot luck was loosely organized online. GBM lit up the drag staging lanes and an after dinner road hockey game ensued. Drew threw one of his massive firework displays (almost lighting up the grandstands) and dinner went ahead for somewhere around 200 people.

This was so much fun and people truly enjoyed themselves. Even the weather was un-seasonally warm daily.

Fast forward six years and here we go again.Along with the off-track fun, there are many close championships up for grabs and the racing will be intense. 

Please watch the Facebook SOAR page ( for the traditional thread regarding food items being contributed. This allows all to see who is bringing what and hopefully allow us to have yet another amazing meal with the SOAR Family. 

A great way to cap off the 2017 SOAR Season.

All racers must check in at the gate and sign your waiver.  You must also show your SOAR competition license at the gate to get entry.  Pit crew must pay the applicable gate fees for the weekend. Also, all racers must check-in with the registration staff to sign in and get their sticker for tech inspection. Failure to check in will mean you will not be fully registered and you will be absent on the grid!

ALL RACERS REQUIRE A TRANSPONDER TO RACE!  SOAR has a small amount of rentals available for the weekend.  We do not sell transponders. You must visit to purchase. SOAR uses X2 Transponders.  You will also be responsible for any subscription fees with your transponder. Please ensure your transponder number is on your registration form.  This will ensure you are entered correctly into the database.  We do have staff on-hand to assist with any questions – just make sure you ask us well in advance of racing.

Join our Facebook Group as any last minute info/reminders/announcement will be posted there. 

Please note that everyone registered for the Endurance Race must check in at registration and present their 2017 SOAR Competition License to the registration staff.  Absolutely no additional riders are to be added without following this process.  Failure to comply will result in an incomplete registration and a DNS result.
