    So we're running both Carrera and Scaley on the same day? Cool!

      After testing all morning I got a 6.571 out of the RHH Audi RS5 on White! I really think the trick to this class is a FULLY broken in motor, and Fully broken in (flat face) tires.

      Raceday is one week away Gents. We will be testing Friday night and Saturday afternoon next weekend with track direction changes every hour or so.

      If you want to Win you're gonna have to test and tune Gents. I hope to see everyone out Friday night for some valuable track time before the big event.

              To heck with waiting until 2018. This should be a quarterly event. Let's have a summer solstice race!

              Lots of fun Ron, great day. With a little luck my Carrera's will be better than mid-pack next time.

                What can I say?.........my Audi RS5 was on fire. Well prepped and tested she was bound to be a winner.

                Gabriel did not at any point let up though. A couple too many crashes or else it would have been a lot closer. A fine drive Gabe.

                Dave rounding out the podium in a tremendous result considering he developed a new car. Both Gabe and I ran last years rig.......

                Top to bottom the grid was the most impressive one I have seen at our facility so far. I can say without a doubt that fun was had by all and I hope we see everyone back out when we run the Nationals again.

                Thanks to everyone that came out. I think I remembered everyones rides.....please chime in if I got it wrong.

                Hopefully I can get the Scaley Nats up after dinner........

                  The 3rd Annual Carrera Canadian Nationals are one day away! I am expecting a huge turnout and the racing will be as fierce as ever.

                  Are you in? You should be! The racing is totally free and the goal is fun.

                  Come one, Come all. Spectators are welcome!

                  The store opens at 11am and the Green Flag Drops for Race 1 at 1pm.

                  See you all tomorrow,

                    Sunday Feb 18, 2018 - North Loop

                    Hi Guys,

                    As anticipated, this is the full result from last weekends The 3rd Annual Carrera Canadian Nationals Race. We had 9 racers out to run for the Win. With last years Champ out with the Flu we were destined to Crown a new Champ for this year. Here is how it all went down........

                    3rd Annual Carrera Canadian Nationals

                    Gabriel - 263 10' (Aston Martin GT3)
                    Glen - 257 20' (Corvette C5R)
                    JCB - 253 57' (BMW DTM)
                    Dave - 249 43' (BMW DTM)
                    Joe Guts - 246 50' (Audi A5 DTM)
                    Marius - 242 5' (BMW DTM)
                    Ravi - 234 24' (Mercedes DTM)
                    John B - 233 60' (Audi R8 GT)
                    Sal - 230 58' (Porsche 997 GT3)

                    Fast Laps

                    Gabriel - 6.466 (P)
                    Glen - 6.693 (W)
                    JCB - 6.735 (W)
                    Dave - 6.941 (W)
                    Joe - 6.977 (B)
                    Marius - 6.919 (P)
                    Ravi - 7.233 (R)
                    John B - 7.201 (R)
                    Sal - 7.247 (B)

                    Well Done Gabriel! He put over 2 laps on last years total and smashed the lap time record!!! What a Drive!

                    Glen blew the dust of his antique Corvette and ended up in second place!!! A amazing result given how little effort he put into it.

                    John Basset rounded out the podium with a much better result than last year. Well done Johnny!

                    Although turnout was down slightly from last year the racing was as fierce as ever. Thanks to everyone that came out.

                    The Scalextric Canadian Nationals are about 3 weeks away. Sunday March 18, 2018. Mark the date, this is the biggest race we throw all year. Don't miss it!

                    See you all next weekend for the 1/24th Scale Street Car Nats. The VW bus is ready to go!
