  • Slot-It Group C Round Results and Final Standings

    SLOT-IT GROUP C , ROUND 1 - FOSSUMHEIM

    Starting the series at RamJets a handfull plus 1 are on hand for the leadoff race .
    With a late decision on the series we thought it would be easier to go with a club
    favorite . Thus what better than the Slot-It Group C's . We're running the standard
    spec's as in the previous series , should be a lot of fun .

    WINTER KING ; Car , something we've never seen or run . Greg had this LMP
    with a guide flex chassis where the guide would move side to side . Different in
    and out of the turns , all and all quite a change from the norm . Great car Greg

    To Greg , To Roger and To Pat

    WINTER IROC ; Cars , Ninco Porsche 997's . 3 of the 4 cars were spot on as
    far as being competitive and gave us some great side by side racing , with all the
    cars taking turns for a win . The closest race of the night with just laps separating
    each position .

    To Pat , RamJet and To Greg

    SLOT-IT GROUP C ; EMSA's tribute in a small way to Bruce Leven . One of the
    North West's most successful race drivers . Started from humble beginnings up at
    Seattle International Raceways . Then purchasing one of Peter Gregg's past 935's
    and stepping to the big league . He had a successful carrier in IMSA including back
    to back 12 Hour's of Sebring Victory's in 87 & 88. Bruce past last September from
    cancer . RIP

    To Greg , To Roger and To John Q


    Thanks to RamJet for a great night of racing .

    next week it's to Vic's and Victory Lane .



    Pat

    SLOT-IT GROUP C ROUND 2 - VICTORY LANE

    After last weeks fail I put my Taguar on the shelf and grabbed my first Slot-It
    962 . It also my have been one of the first cars I painted and decaled . With
    a salute to Bruce Leven how appropriate but to run one of his Bayside liveries
    The 1985 car with the half blue and and pink side panels . Smokin Joe also made
    it down for a run with the boys .




    WINTER KING ; Car , Revo Slot Porsche GT2 . Greg's still in the leadoff spot
    and after this weeks stage he'll be there for quite a wile . The car performed
    well and Greg lit it up . I was next and ended up a little embarrassed being 4
    tenths off the pace . As we continued , with the cleaning the tires the car just
    got worse (thats our story anyway) with no one able to challenge Greg .

    To Greg , To Pat and to Vic

    WINTER IROC ; Cars , Pro Slot Porsche GT2's , Slot-It rear running gear and
    the Gold Evo 2 motors . Great set of cars and a ton of fun to race . The lane 1
    car was off a tic off the pace with the other 3 neck and neck . Some great back
    and forth racing . Far to many offs for me with Joe stepping up to grab the last
    step on the Podium .

    To Greg , To Vic and To Joe

    SLOT-IT GROUP C ; Well my almost Vintage 962 had a heck of a night . It was
    a bit of a hand full as the race went on but managed to stay in the slot . Greg's
    Lancia ran strong and landed on the second step of the Podium . RamJet had a
    reprieve from his off session he encountered last week ending up third .

    To Pat , To Greg and To RamJet

      Sorry , it's been a busy week . Tomorrow's Race is at the BrickYard .
      Hope to see you there

      ROUND 3 SOLT-IT GROUP C - RAINIER RACEWAYS

      To Auburn and Greg's for the 3rd Round of the Group C cars . Smoking Joe
      makes it 2 in a row ! Roger suffering from Jet lag just getting back from
      across the pond .

      WINTER KING ; Car , RamJets Fly front engine Corvette , pretty much
      stock maybe some different tires . Fun car , definitely different from the
      norm . Greg did his best to fall from the lead off spot but he's still on top
      in the standings .

      To Pat , To Roger and To Vic

      WINTER IROC ; Cars , NINCO Classics , always a ton of fun . Working
      very hard to get so little . Rough on the finger and sometimes the mind .
      always great racing . The results are in my thumb drive but they won't
      let me open them , we'll see if we can figure it out tonight .


      SLOT-IT GROUP C ; A rough night of racing with plenty of offs Victor
      dealing with the Sport curbing on the R1 Hairpin . Roger dealing with
      his clinging Jet lag and Joe Dealing with Joe .

        ROUND 4 SLOT-IT GROUP C - THE BRICKYARD

        After spending some time over the weekend at Bob's , adding some light to the track
        I couldn't wait to get there and race . Then coming to the realization I'm still only 5'6"
        and can now only see what it was I couldn't see before . Thus meaning I still can't see
        anything . - Still had a fun night and we all get a throw out , right ?

        WINTER KING ; Car , Rogers Racer SideWays BMW M1 . Greg was finally not the first
        to run but only because he wasn't there . So yours truly Lead it off and left a lot on the
        track for everyone else . Roger was next and lit it up . Vic was 1 one thousandth off the
        pace and the rest just fell in line . Just so you know Greg , you will still be first next week .

        To Roger , To Vic and To RamJet

        WINTER IROC ; Cars , Vintage Road Racers . 2 Fly cars a 908/3 and a Chevron B21
        and 2 Monogram , a Chaparral and a Shelby King Cobra . Funny thing the 2 fly cars took
        it to the Monogram Classics . Maybe it was the lanes that had something to do with it or
        the fly's were just a bit more forgiving . Every one had a win , I'm thinking it was the 908
        with Roger Leading the way this time around .

        To Roger , To Vic and To RamJet

        http://www.slotcarillustrated.com/po...1&d=1520104247

        SLOT-IT GROUP C ; Well Bob was primed for this one , had his tires sliced and diced set
        up to the T . After the first heat we all knew it was going to be a long night for the rest
        of us . Vic had a chance but after there was a miscue on the pause button causing a heat
        restart Bob had it in the bag . Went from a 3rd with 8 laps to a 1st with 16 laps and that
        will win you a race . Still a great run by Bob (we will be teching your car) with 8 heat wins .

        to Baba Loo , To Vic and To RanJet

          ROUND 5 SLOT-IT GROUP 5 - CASCADES RACEWAY

          The gang made it's way South down to Dan's for the 5th round of the Group C
          cars . I think everyone was looking forward to see how the Slot-It's would run
          at Dan's this time around and I believe no one was disappointed except maybe
          Vic in his last couple heats .

          WINTER KING ; Car , John Q's Chip Ganassi , Carrera Ford GT GTE . A beautiful
          car that ran very well on it's first night out . Greg lead things off with a more
          than respectable Stage , I was next and fell a little short . Vic edged Greg by
          6 one thousandths then Dan lit it up by nearly a tenth .

          To Dan , To Vic and To Greg

          WINTER IROC ; Cars , Dan's Carrera DTM's . We ran these a wile back and they
          gave us a great race . Monday was no exception as the cars were so close in
          most every heat . With some heats go down to the last tick of the clock . It
          was a close race and should have be even closer . Sorry Dan . The DTM's
          run like they were made for this track . Greg takes it by a lap .

          To Greg , To Pat and To Dan

          http://www.slotcarillustrated.com/po...1&d=1520823635

          SLOT-IT GROUP C ; After Dan's take out in the IROC race he was taking nothing
          for granted in the Series segment . Posting the fastest lap , taking the most
          heat win's and running the most laps . A pretty dominating performance by
          our host . Vic was right in there tell the last couple heats , suffering a broken
          body post running his last heat with a borrowed car .

          To dan , To Pat and To Vic

            ROUND 6 SLOT-IT GROUP C - SCALERACING CENTER

            To the Center on a Thursday for the 5th Round of the Group C cars . The
            Club always enjoys the race at Alan's giving the series cars a chance to
            stretch out their legs and see what kind of lap times can be put up on the
            board . It's also the only venue where heat wins don't come into play , it's
            all about the laps at the Center !

            WINTER KING ; It's aways something different when it comes to the King
            at Alan's . 6 lane , 8 lane , Drag Strip this time around it was back to the
            Rally Track . Alan knows the lay out better than any of us so we let him
            lead things off , didn't matter though . Greg was the only one to make
            it a respectable showing from the club .

            To Alan , To Greg and To Roger

            WINTER IROC ; Cars , Ninco Porsche 997's . The cars gave us a great
            race with most of the positions being separated 1 lap . Alan had a tough
            race spending most of the segment as Smoking Joe's personal guard rail .
            I may of had a fender in 1 of them .

            to Pat , To Roger and To Greg

            SLOT-IT GROUP C ; A big lesson was learned this week as Roger on a rare
            occasion may not of been the fastest car on the track but he was the most
            consistent . He showed great patience staying in the slot and getting his
            laps . The rest of us fell in line with the final positions again being separated
            by a lap . Great Race Roger !

            To Roger , To Pat and To Alan

              ROUND 7 SLOT-IT GROUP C - MASENCHAMPS

              To Blairs and Masenchamps for the 7th Round of the Slot-It Group C cars .
              After stretching our legs at the Center , it's back to patience and timing
              which is always the case at Masenchamps . Being just a bit aggressive or
              off a hair on your braking can cost you heavily .

              WINTER KING ; Car , Roger's Revo Slot Porsche GT2 shod with BRM's
              latest rubber . The car ran well maybe just a little twitchy early on in the
              Stage but got better as tires came into their own . Greg has become our
              leadoff man in the King and is still holding on to the overall lead by just
              over a second . A rare stage win by our Sunday cruiser RamJet

              To RamJet , To Vic and To Blair

              WINTER IROC ; Cars , Blair's NSR Classic Porsche 917's . The cars are
              great , super smooth and plenty quick . The only problem the car in lane
              3's tires had no grip to speak of and if you ran it early on it was tough .
              The other 2 cars traded win's back and forth giving us the race of the night
              with Smokin Joe landing on the second step of the Podium .

              To Vic , To Smokin Joe and To RamJet

              http://www.slotcarillustrated.com/po...1&d=1521999001

              SLOT-IT GROUP C ; The Group C cars performed great at Masenchamps
              giving us incredible heats with everyone notching 21 lap heats . I can't
              remember any take outs to speak of , though minimal most offs were self
              induced . The goal became hitting the magic 22 . Roger had a good shot
              in the second to last heat till he came into contact with Joe on the infield .
              Then it was my turn , lane 2 last heat . With the pedal to the medal all the
              way it was conquered .

              Tio Pat , To Vic and To our Host Blair

                8th AND FINAL ROUND SLOT-IT GROUP C - FOSSUMHEIM

                Sorry guys it's been a wile but I took a weekend for me . Back to RamJet's
                for the second time in the Series (thanks Roger) RamJet always steps up to
                the plate when needed .

                WINTER KING ; Car , Roger's Vintage Cox Lotus ? Not to fast , no brakes
                but a blast to run or for me to crash (Sorry Rog) I checked the next day and
                Roger said nothing to serious .

                To Greg , To Roger and To RamJet

                WINTER IROC ; Cars RamJet's Modified Fly Porsche 917's . I not sure what
                Ramjet's done with them but they ran great . Giving us a awesome IROC
                finale . Just a blast every heat going to the wire , with every lane getting
                a win . Thanks RamJet ! What a Series with the final Standings going to
                the last round and only 2 points separating the top 3

                SLOT-IT CROUP C; Another close Series segment . Roger had a tough night
                loosing his tires shortly after the first heat . With the rest finding a way to
                heat win's . Again it was close most the night , Vic had his shear of off's
                RamJet to and I crumbled near the end . Greg held on staying in the slot
                and finishing strong for the Victory .
