What is Bare Rubber?
Bare Rubber refers to the type of tires that are run in the Sunday Bare Rubber classes. These tires must not have any traction modifiers in them. Just the bare rubber on the ice. Street division drivers run the tires they drive to the events on, typically all seasons or other daily driving tire compounds. Pro Street and Competition are allowed to run tires that are designed for ice driving or tires that have a very soft rubber compound. You can check the rule book for more specifications on these classes.
Is it Safe?
If we’re racing, the ice is safe. We always check the ice depth and quality in 4 different areas before we let anyone enter the lake. The ice in Georgetown averages 12 to 22 inches throughout the two months we race. We need to have 12 inches to hold a race, 18 inches before we allow trucks and trailers onto the ice and 20+ inches before we allow large RVs out. We ask that everyone park 20 feet apart to maintain even weight distribution in the pit area. Even individual vehicles need to park with space around them. Don’t park all in the same area like a parking lot or cluster around the trucks, trailers or RVs that are in the pits. Please stay in our area of the lake, which is marked at the boundary. We will try to mark old bolt tracks, ice fishing holes and other areas of ice that are healing, so you can drive around them.
