The ice is gone but not forgotten.  It was a great 2015 season and now while everyone remembers the good and the bad it is time to consider and reconsider the rules!  What worked well and what didn’t?  The Adirondack Motor Enthusiast Club depends on its members to improve our club so now is your chance.  The Rules committee will be meeting soon so don’t waste time!  Send us your idea or comments or post them on the Club message board in the “Ice Racing rules committee will meet soon” topic.  Before you know the leaves will be falling and you will remember you forgot to pull the battery from the ice racer at the end of last season……….

The Adirondack Motor Enthusiast Club (A.M.E.C.) Celebrates its 61st. anniversary this year. We have also completed our 50th year of ice racing. A.M.E.C. Ice Racing is the safest and most inexpensive form of road racing available today. We race 6 classes of cars on approximately .75 to 1.3 mile road courses on frozen lakes in northeastern NY from mid January until early March. All regular classes run on purpose built studded ice racing tires which can be constructed according to our rules or bought from Pryme Tire . We also have the "Street Legal" classes, which use studless  winter tires. The Street Legal Unstudded [SL] class is for 2WD cars and the [SL4] class is for 4WD and AWD cars. We also have a studded tire Street Legal Class for both 2WD and 4WD/AWD using only the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7 or 8 tires. Normal turnout is 60 to 80 entries. The studded classes run from mild to wild--from under 1500cc box stock cars to custom designed tube frame cars with up to 5.8 liter (358ci.) engines that are capable of running well over 100 mph. There are two stock type classes {Modified Menard and Stock Sportsman}, one for heavily modified stock type cars {Supermodified Closed Wheel}, and one class for exotic tube frame cars {Super Modified Open Wheel}. PLEASE SEE THE FULL COPY OF THE RULES. The race format for the race studded class cars, SMO, SMC, MM, is for two heat races for each class and one finale race. The heat races are about 20 minutes long and the finale from 30 to 40 minutes long. Street Legal classes run three 20 minute heat races. Normally races are held each Sunday during the season (weather and ice conditions permitting) but there may be one or more full weekend events. For more information on the Street Legal Classes click on the "Getting Started" and "Bridgestone Street Legal" links from the menu bar.
