Those lights I got ya are 500 watts a piece. On a 15 amp breaker your only going to get 3 per circuit.
At SAR when we had those lights we were connect 4 to some and 5 to others but we had 20 and 25 amp breakers installed to operate those lights.

So if you get 2 25amp circuits setup out by the pool you would be good for a good portion of the lights. However those breakers are $100.00+ a pop :( ... We shoulda taken them out of the hangar when we left LOL

I was blowing the breaker for the family room (30amp) and the kitchen one (30amp) when I had too many lights or when the WC Lift was used.  These outdoor plugs are my only options at the back of the house.  More cords were used to move them to the side of the house and I quickly learned it's only a 15amp breaker and I can only run one cord there... so that will be the plug used for the WC lift.

I will try to get the most lights working as possible.


KEEP in mind
The goal for GFX Raceway this summer was to keep Wednesday Racing running for everyone (mainly because I'm miserable when I don't get my weekly RC fix).  So that's why I opened the track up to everyone and only charging $10 to cover the electricity bill and some costs to keep the track maintained.

If I have to get an electrician in... or buy extension cords... then Race fees will need to go up. :'(

+1 Shawn ...

And from someone who knows ... rates are too low even at 20 and 5 and 10 for practice much less 10 for a race night.

We started with a wet, slick track, then it dried throughout the night into a tacky track and it was a lot of fun.  I had only 2 minutes of talent for a 5 minute main, ahh well.  See ya Friday night for practice.

The track was fast and sticky. Had a great night  with a fast lap of 21.1 in eight scale.

Fun times as always at GFX last night .. Little Noah was super dialed last night.

Track conditions were fun last night and Shawn did a great job with the lighting and the fixes on the 2 jumps.
