News and Information
For Week 7
Friday, August 09,   2019
 2019  TEAMS  NIGHT!

4 colours- Black, White, Red and Blue
first race 7:30pm  
This week’s Races
•   Round 1   Warm up Scratch
•   Round 2  Sprint (4 up @ 2 Laps)  
•   Round 3  The Colourful SNOWBALL    
•   Round 4  div 5 final event  
•   Round 5 Super Italian (all riders except div 5)

Explain these races
Sprint - - at RAW Track, sprints are usually run as 4-6 ups over 2-4 laps the first laps are usually spent sizing your opponents up and positioning yourself for the optimum explosion to the finish. It is not uncommon for a sneaky rider to attack early in the hope of holding a lead to the finish. The sprint is a test of power, speed and above all, tactics.

Point race- Riders must score points by sprinting for intermittent sprints every ?? laps for bonuses (5, 3, 2, 1 points). Lapping the field scores a bonus 20 points, consequently losing a lap to the field scores -20points. (however at RAW lapped riders are withdrawn with no penalty to their score) The final sprint is worth double points.(however at RAW we generally only have 3 sprints so-"no double on last sprint") Winner of the race is the rider with the most points, ties are split by position on final sprint. (however at RAW later sprints take precedence)

Snowball- Some times called a progressive point-score. The race is run similar to a point score-however each lap is a sprint for first place only with the points earned corresponding to the laps completed i.e. the winner of the first sprint gets 1 point winner of the 10th sprint gets 10points. The overall winner is the rider with the most points.
Super Italian: Watch this

The Colourful Snowball - New for 2019, instead of the standard Snowball in round 4 we will be conducting a slight variation to this tactical race. Riders will earn points for their "team Colour" and not for themselves. These points will be instantly added to the teams total 

 Teams Night is always one of the best nights of the year,
 also one of the hardest to organise so please read on!


Teams night.
This week will be one of RAW Tracks Famous Team Challenge Night
How does this work?
•   As you sign on you will be allocated and assigned one of four team colours.
•   Your team colour will be a T-Shirt you must wear.
•   Teams will be Red, Blue, White and Black
•   Every race you will score 5, 3, 2 and 1 point towards your team score.
•   The point scouring rounds will be 1, 2, 3 and 4  
•   Round 5 will be a super Italian Pursuit using your colour team
•   Team Points will determine the Ride Off order (1 v 2 for 1st and 3 v 4 for 3rd)
•   The Italian Pursuit will determine the final results.  

What is the reward?
•   Members of the teams individually will receive a bonus 10, 8, 6 and 4 points respectively towards the TWE series point-score.  
•   Again this year riders will not earn individual points for placing in races.

Why are we doing this?
•   Because it is a heap of fun.
•   It is a great opportunity to socialise with people you normally wouldn’t
•   A Div 1 rider will intently watch how his Div 5 team mate is going and may offer a tip or two

Team’s night procedure
•   Please ensure that when you sign on you receive a colour T-shirt
•   Record your colour on sign on sheet (in the correct column)
•   Please wear your colour T-Shirt  
•   You can bring own T shirt or Jersey but it must be predominantly your team colour    

Team’s night seating

•   Again this year I will set up 4 flagged areas. One for each team colour.
•   It is encouraged/ compulsory that riders from each team sit in designated area.
•   At the start of the night, all riders will be asked to relocate to their respective colour camps.  

What if there is a draw on points
•   Should two teams be equal on points after round 4 and potentially be in different ride off’s (e.g. 2nd and 3rd tied)
•   In RAW Track style, Scissor Paper Rock between team captains will determine the higher position.

Trying to manipulate the Teams
•   Each Year, certain individuals try to beat the system by getting a particular team for whatever reason; (Friends, club mates or good riders)
•   To this I say “Don’t” Chill-Out, let the cards fall where they may. It is more fun this way.
