    • Dec 9th race night

      thank you to everyone that made it out to our Christmas Fun night, I think this was the first time we were able to put together a December event in many years ( they have always been cancelled do to weather ! ) Lots of beautiful vintage cars hit the track for some parade laps, a lot of interest in these cars, we will definately put together an actual race for this class at future events.

      we had an IROC style race with the Rental/Party cars and the win went to Peter :




      thanks as always to Brant & Dianne for letting us into their home, 2011 was a great year of racing and spending time with friends.

      I will see you all for Nascar & E.J.'s Midgets on January 6th, have a very merry Christmas & Happy New Year !

              • Jan 27th - next event

                Just a reminder, the next race night is Jan 27th, we will be running Sports Prototype & Productions Sports classes. Also, Brant has suggested trying to fit three classes in, if we get started on time the rental cars can be run as well. What I would like to see is all practicing done at the beginning of the night then race the classes one after the other.

                * thank you to Terry for installing the catch walls around the corner areas, we saw a few cars get saved from a trip to the floor last night.

                  • this Friday, Sports & Sports

                    We have completed the first round of the classes and start the second round this Friday, Jan 27th with Production Sports (IMSA) and Sports Prototype. I talked to Chuck Ingram yesterday and he is looking forward to joining us, he is doing well and will be attending as a spectator.

                    Here's the standings :

                    1st Terry ( 55 pts ) 2nd Jim ( 40 pts ) Victor ( 37 pts ) 4th Brant ( 29 pts ) 5th Peter ( 27 pts )
                    6th Kevin / Gord (*tie 17 pts ) 7th Gary ( 13 pts ) 8th Justin ( 11 pts ) 9th Joe.S ( 9 pts )
                    10th Scott / Brock (*tie 6 pts )

                    Defending 2 time champion Terry Dalton has a commanding lead part way into the season followed by 4 time runner-up Jim Toye ( twice by one point ! I feel like Carl Edwards x 4 ! - not a good feeling ) 2 time champion Victor Czerwony is turning up the heat in 3rd place with some new builds

                    We have several new members this season, great to see this, they are showing up with some beautiful cars and catching on to the racing quite quickly.

                    Hope to see everyone on Friday

                      • Jan 27th Sports cars

                        Sports Prototype :

                        Jim Toye Victor Czerwony Peter Czerwony



                        some very high number of laps in this one !

                        Production Sports :

                        Jim Toye Terry Dalton Justin M.



                        the Corvette was the meat in a Ferrari sandwich for this one - the big story, Justin M. hitting the podium in third after some mad thrashing on his new Ferrari, look out for this car, the times were getting faster & faster towards the end as the brand new motor began to break in.

                        see you next time

                        • Thanks

                          I have to send out thanks to a few people:
                          Jim for the extra lead & flux - Handles great now!
                          Brant for letting me arrive a bit early to work on my setup and
                          Chuck for the bigger soldering iron to install that new motor.

                          See you next month.

                          • something to think about

                            at the last race night Brant mentioned that he would like to put together a Saturday BBQ event in the spring and hold a E.J.'s Midget 250 lap race ( as a Ted Howes Memorial event ) I suggested that we also include a retro class as there's been quite a bit of interest. So, give it some thought, we can come up with some popular classes or just have a "run what ya brung" classic retro race.

                            message me if you have some ideas

                            Thanks, Jim
