    Hello All,

    Well, it seemed that last night was going to be a bust but low and behold, at 7:20 5 guys walked through the door. So we had 6 to race, track calls on and away we went. We just ran one Open Class race with most guys testing stock class cars except for Ravi and Dave. Here is how it went down........

    Dave - 186
    Ravi - 185
    Charles - 179
    Ronnie - 175
    Gabriel - 172
    Sal - 149

    Fast Laps

    Dave - 6.132 (G)
    Ravi - 6.176 (B)
    Charles - 6.292 (R)
    Ronnie - 6.676 (B)
    Gabriel - 6.292 (G)
    Sal - 6.560 (R)

    Good fun guys. Although not a race packed evening we did run one and then most of us continued to test for the season.

    Heads up, I am thinking of doing a LMP Class. It would be restricted to Modern day LMP Cars. Open or closed cockpit..........modifications allowed. I will post a full rule set once I have it hammered out.

    See you all Friday night. I will be here on Sunday but I doubt there will be any 1/24th scale racing as it is Turkey Day and most people are out and about with the family.

    Hi Guys,

    Well, for a first attempt at race night I have to say that this season is looking VERY Good! The track was wicked fast last night........Thanks to Glen and Tim for running a million laps on it yesterday afternoon to get it back in tip top shape.

    We ran 2 races, Stockish and Modish.........Fun was had! Here are the results..........

    Race 1

    Ravi - 186 40'
    Glen - 180 48'
    Ronnie - 179 7'
    Mike H - 176 17'
    Gabriel - 172 11'
    Dave - 171 8'
    Tim - 162 7'

    Fast Laps

    Ravi - 6.204 (B)
    Glen - 6.385 (P)
    Ronnie - 6.558 (G)
    Mike H - 6.584 (R)
    Gabriel - 6.522 (G)
    Dave - 6.585 (P)
    Tim - 6.824 (P)

    Race 2

    Ronnie - 197 43'
    Glen - 190 6'
    Mike H - 186 12'
    Dave - 185 39'
    Ravi - 177 45'
    Tim - 173 40'

    Fast Laps

    Ronnie - 5.946 (G)
    Glen - 5.957 (P)
    Mike H - 6.078 (P)
    Dave - 5.988 (P)
    Ravi - 6.274 (B)
    Tim - 6.487 (G)

    Great Fun Guys. It was clear Tim ran out of gas right before racing started.

    Ravi put in a great first run and Glen was a model of consistency as usual.

    I am looking forward to a VERY Strong Friday night racing program this winter. I am sure we will have a few more new racers out this winter combined with the series regulars should make for some Epic races with the small cars this season.

    Thanks to everyone that comes out and makes the effort to race. It will be the only thing that keeps me sane this winter.

    Was hoping to make it tonight, but 3 nights in a row might test the home life. Will try to make it out in a couple of weeks.

    Have a great night!

    Hi Guy,

    I have landed a Slot it order with ALL the new stuff on it.......... Slot it/Policar F40 anyone?



    and a pic from last weekend........We finished 2nd overall and got a Race 2 Win. It was an excellent race season with bitter sweet tones as it will be a LONG time before we go out again.



    I hope to see everyone out on Friday night.

    Hi Guys,

    A nice relaxed evening of 32nd scale racing was on the agenda. Fun was had by all. We even had a first time racer out, Roger did just fine. Here are the results.......

    Slot it Group C

    Dave - 184 75'
    Ravi - 184 63'
    Steve - 184 57'
    Bill D - 179 10'
    GC - 179 33'
    Robert - 178 67'
    Sal - 155 35'
    Roger - 151 31'

    Fast Laps

    Dave - 6.100 (G)
    Ravi - 6.211 (R)
    Steve - 6.096 (G)
    Bill D - 6.217 (R)
    GC - 6.375 (G)
    Robert - 6.352 (W)
    Sal - 6.730 (R)
    Roger - 7.119 (P)

    Dave got the WIN!!! Ravi was second and they both bested Steve! A great run by all 3 podium finishers.

    Even the 4th to 6th place spots were within 40' of each other.

    Very close competitive racing, nicely done guys.

    Now onto Open Mods.

    Open Modifieds

    Steve - 189 13'
    Dave - 186 71'
    GC - 183 42'
    Bill D - 178 72'
    Robert - 173 5'
    Ravi - 155 1'
    Roger - 153 76'
    Sal - 148 11'

    Fast Laps

    Steve - 6.075 (B)
    Dave - 6.100 (B)
    GC - 6.084 (G)
    Bill D - 6.230 (R)
    Robert - 6.344 (P)
    Ravi - 7.180 (R)
    Roger - 6.819 (B)
    Sal - 6.398 (W)

    Steve redeemed himself a little with a convincing Win.

    Dave was firmly in second with GC about a few laps back in 3rd.

    Roger beat out Sal who claimed the basement for this race.

    Good Fun Guys. Thanks to everyone that comes out on Friday Nights to race. The 32nd Scale Race program is going strong and I expect it to stay that way until the end of April.

    See you guys all today for the big cars and Don't Forget, The Carrera Canadian Nationals are next weekend, Saturday March 26th. Don't miss what will be our Biggest Slot Car Race of the Season!!!!

    Hi Guys,

    I'm a little behind in the Race Reports. I should have posted last Sundays 24th Scale Report but this will go up first.........hopefully I have some time to post the 24th Report later today.

    Here is how 32nd scale Race Night turned out.........

    Slot it Group C

    Glen - 184 73'
    Dave - 179 61'
    Steve - 179 46'
    Bill D - 173 28'
    Mike H - 172 57'
    GC - 172 32'
    Tony - 171 71'
    Tim - 167 50'
    Lewis - 136 71'

    Fast Laps

    Glen - 6.106 (G)
    Dave - 6.193 (P)
    Steve - 6.288 (G)
    Bill D - 6.314 (G)
    Mike H - 6.554 (B)
    GC - 6.399 (P)
    Tony - 6.525 (P)
    Tim - 6.408 (G)
    Lewis - 7.003 (G)

    Glen bagged the Win. He set a killer fast lap as well!

    Dave beat out Steve.........well done Dave!

    Steve was on the podium and keenly focused on "The List".

    Now onto Open Mods........

    Open Modifieds

    Glen - 182 4'
    Steve - 182 30'
    Bill D - 177 32'
    Mike H - 176 34'
    GC - 176 33'
    Tim - 169 33'
    Tony - 169 20'
    Dave - 160 12'
    Lewis - 145 31'

    Fast Laps

    Glen - 6.312 (G)
    Steve - 6.137 (G)
    Bill D - 6.272 (R)
    Mike H - 6.364 (G)
    GC - 6.239 (G)
    Tony - 6.732 (G)
    Tim - 6.698 (B)
    Dave - 6.848 (R)
    Lewis - 6.787 (G)

    Looks like the Stock Class cars are faster than Open Mods!!! You guys all need slower motors!

    Tim ran his Carrera Nats car and hit a 6.698 with it!!! This is our new benchmark. Looks like T&T racing will be a contender!

    The 24th Scale Report should be up later today.........
