  • Scaleracing Nationals Oct. 10-12, 2013

    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.

    ...and I will be the first to say I plan on attending at least one day depending what classes are run when.

      I would have to agree with UW. I am going try and make it to at least one of those days. I just started getting back into the hobby so it is going to take me few to restock and practice. I have a few cars coming so it will all depend what class we are running.

          Thank you all who want to make things happen.

          Ricky has been through a tough Summer as have many Retail Stores across this Great Land.

          I feel for the Hobby to survive, let alone grow and prosper we need Race Wear, and many more Stores committed to building a Track and Hosting Events.

          With regard to what will run and when, if we can get a good idea on who can make it out, especially the Local Clubs and Racing Groups then we can schedule around them to make it happen.

          We can certainly plan a full day on Saturday for the 1:24 scale BRM Group C, 917 and Megane Classes plus of course Scaleauto 1:24.

          Subject to who can make it, and what most want to run. We could do some 1:32 on Friday night, we could have Group C and LMP Open then. All of these would be Sprint Races.

          Sunday we could also have 1:32 or 1:24 and or Endurance races, what I need now it to hear who can come, which days, and Classes preferred.

          I know Ricky has a few New Racers who feel they are just not up to speed to do a National Final, while that is not true as all are welcome and all will learn from the Event ( Even me ) If we have enough new racers I can host a Novice Class, and no Robert Holt you cannot enter that!!!

          Seriously we need to support all Stores and Track that expose the Hobby to New Racers as without them the future is not so bright.

          So if I can hear from people real soon either direct 1-253-255-1807, or through Ricky, or on SCI here then we can still make this happen.

          A good time is promised to all, now can we do it, I say YES WE CAN!!!! Now I am listening.

          I can bring some cars for Racers who have not tried some of these Classes yet, plus I know a GREAT Store that sells them RACE WEAR!!!

              Lets all come together and put hard feelings behind. Alan is still wanting to host this race and we owe it to him for everything he has done in the past for the hobby and everyone here. He needs bo book a flight by Thursday so please respond. Rules will be very simple. The entry fee will be under $50.00 for the entire event. Please let us know if you can make it. The past is the past. Lets start fresh with no hard feelings. come out, have fun, support the hobby, and support Alan. See you at the track.

                              Tires and other rules.

                              Regarding tires, we will allow easily identified Scaleauto tires in the Classes requiring those tires be used. No re-profiled or trimmed tires allowed.
                              Motors, your own unopened motors allowed in all classes. Any motors showing signs of tampering will be disqualified.
                              Re race inspection will be visual, post race will be tear down.
