    Scaleracing Nationals Oct. 10-12, 2013

    Ok,
    The purpose of this thread is to express your interest in attending the Scaleracing Nationals at Racewear in Glen Burnie Maryland October 10-13, 2013. The prior mentioned scales and classes will be raced on those dates. If you have a question as to what will be raced refer to the other threads to get an idea.
    I in no way what to hear about or care about drama or dirty laundry in this thread. We are grown men playing with toy cars for Heaven's sake, lets keep that in perspective and not take ourselves too seriously.
    If you can or plan to attend at least one day then just simply post in this thread and say so. This will hopefully give Ricky and Alan a better idea of the potential turnout. Thus they can plan the event accordingly and give everyone a better idea of exactly what classes will be run on what day, and more importantly if they are even going to have the event.
    So, Gentlemen, please enter your intentions here to assist in the planning of this event.
    Thanks,
    UW

    Saturday racing started at 12.00 midday, we had 12 racers including Andre and Robert Holt who traveled from NJ. great to see people come out for Events thanks guys.

    BRM Sprints started the day, I ran a BRM angle winder prototype chassis car, which was not weight legal as well so would not count in the results. It was a good test to see how it faired against a well set up group of BRM cars both Toyota and Porsche.

    2nd.Robert Holt..........BRM Toyota......Purple motor...135 laps. DQ under weight 178 grams. Minimum weight 180 grams.

    Yes sir I do stand corrected. I forgot about you Alan! Boy I'm in trouble now, my slot car prices just doubled!

    Actually he was third on the road.

    I did declare before the race I was not running for position as my car was a prototype, so my 1st did not count, then Robert Holt but his place did not count either so third in lap counts but on the top step of the podium was Craig.

    Actually I believe the second place car won and that was driven by Craig W. from CRL.

    I wil be getting the race Reports up soon!!

    I will be getting the Race Results and stories up as soon as I can.

    Here is a link to photo's I shot, while rushing around. Some will probably be deleted, as not in focus but for now I bulk uploaded them.

    Once again I saw what a great sport Robert Holt was in the BRM Sprint Final. I came first but was running a prototype of the angle winder BRM Porsche chassis so did not count. Next was Robert Holt and photo's will show him as 1st place.
    I did tech inspection and weight on all cars on pre grid. Unfortunately Robert was late to tech as he was putting in lenses on the Toyota body, and as we were gridding the cars I failed to check the weight of his Toyota.
    Robert ran a great race, and won on the road with a Purple ( light weight ) motor. Sadly his car when in post race tech came in 2.5 grams under minimum weight. While this was not why he won, I had to DQ his car. I felt bad, and can only say again how much I admire his response, Robert you a truly a great guy!!! More stories later.

    For the record, the BRM purple motor is no lighter than the others really, but makes a great story

    In my book Robert you are still

    I know first hand...but was joking about the weight since my car didn't meet minimum daily requirement.

    You don't need the black motor to win with a BRM at Race Wear.. Really, you don't...

    Next time I'll slide by Biogenesis and pick up some PED's for my car. Actually I guess if it was in tech on time, it's anemic condition could've been diagnosed before the race so I could've thrown in a couple grams weight.

    Well needless to say I had a great time at Racewear this past weekend. The event was a lot of fun and a huge success with lots of old faces and some new ones as well. It was great to race with you all. Much thanks to Alan for flying in and making this a success and to his tireless efforts helping set up everyone's cars but his own (and bringing goodies too )!! And yes he was very competitive in all classes. Thanks also to Ricky for putting on this event and racing with us as well. I look forward to the next event with all you guys. Thanks also goes out to Robert and Andre for making the trek from NJ to race with us. I don't know whether to tell you to go on a diet next time or bulk up Robert!!
    Once again thanks to all who participated and who made it happen.

    Good racing with you guys, as always had fun, even though I've had bad luck the past few years. C'mon back up to NJ so I can transfer that bad luck to some of you guys...

    Thanks Alan and Ricky for putting on the show, well done as usual.

    Craig, you have a PM.
