              November 19, 2018

              Quote of the week –
              “I won't insult your intelligence by assuming that you really believe what you just said.”

              Race #1: Formula 1 – in which Petemutt had his traction control on and wondered why his car was sluggish

              1. Troydog, 79.90, 9.425
              2. Alexpuppy, 73.70, 9.468

              • GTA record ??

                Looks like all "you dogs" had a good night racing.

                If Alex's car was a GTA, 78.25 laps would be a class record for 3rd most laps.

                  • Friday night @ Ace Hobby
                    November 23, 2018

                    Quote of the week: “Life became immeasurably better once I stopped taking it seriously.”

                    A well-fed assembly of ten racers struggled in to Ace Hobby on the evening following the first celebration of the “festive” season. There were 8 cars in TransAm and GT, 10 in Group C (applause for John and Pauly).

                    Race #1: TransAm - featuring a very close finish

                    1.Troydog, 74.65, 9.310
                    2.Joe, 74.45, 9.231
                    3.Alex, 73.05, 9.493
                    4.Russ, 70.55, 9.604
                    5.F-Ron, 69.35, 9.654
                    6.Steve, 67.70. 10.186
                    7.Gill, 65.45, 10.320
                    8.Pete, 64.80, 10.031

                    Fast Laps
                    Joe – Y: 9.231, W: 9.322, B: 9.495, R: 9.607

                    Race #2: Group C - an equally close finish

                    1.Troydog, 78.90, 8.767
                    2.Alex, 78.70, 8.908
                    3.F-Ron, 78.10, 8.952
                    4.Joe, 77.35, 9.052
                    5.Pete, 74.90, 9.292
                    6.Gill, 70.40, 9.123
                    7.Steve, 70.35, 9.932
                    8.Russ, 69.90, 9.685
                    9.John, 64.55, 10.189
                    10.Pauly, 62.95, 10.413

                    Fast Laps
                    Troydog - Y: 8.767; W: 9.007, B: 9.025, R: 9.239

                    Race #3: GT - with a fairly close finish

                    1.Troydog, 79.90, 8.670
                    2.Joe, 78.90, 8.773
                    3.Russ, 78.85, 8.734
                    4.F-Ron, 78.15, 8.852
                    5.Gill, 75.60, 9.082
                    6.Steve, 75.45, 9.283
                    7.Pete, 72.00, 9.519
                    8.Alex (fun run), 71.40, 8.931

                    Fast Laps
                    Troydog - Y: 8.694, W: 8.670, B: 8.804
                    Russ - R: 9.108

                    Given the lap times turned by the Group C cars, the GT cars would do well to pull up their socks and get on with it.

                    Many thanks to all workers and participants.
                    Molte grazie a tutti i lavoratori e partecipanti.

                    • November IROC Double Enduro @ Ace Hobby
                      November 24, 2018

                      Four equally and scientifically prepared cars were provided by the organizers. Rumor had it that hours of testing and re-testing went into the preparation of the vehicles. At any rate, the IROC format meant that each of the cars stayed on one lane while the drivers rotated across the lanes, driving a different car each heat. Theoretically, any performance differences would be distributed equally. There were extended breaks between lanes to allow for any possible confusion in re-positioning of cars as the drivers changed lanes but it all went very smoothly. Heats were 5 minutes each.

                      Several of the usual suspects from Friday returned on Saturday and a fine assembly of 13 racers stepped up for the first race.

                      Race #1: Group C - in which, unfortunately, the car on red was found to be of sub-optimal performance despite all the effort invested and slowed down further as the race progressed… from .5 seconds slow with Joe driving to 1.1 seconds slower by the time Troydog got to it… after which it was ‘retired’ and replaced during the last heat.

                      1.Joe, 123.10, 9.324
                      2.Steve, 121.55, 9.460
                      3.Pete, 119.15, 9.493

                      Race #2: GT - in which four GTA cars (Monday rules) were the featured vehicles. These proved to be very well matched and many spirited duels ensued, as the closeness of the finish proves.

                      Thanks due to Ron for the venue and the track time. A major tip of the hat to Joe, Troy, Ron, and Alex for providing and prepping the cars.

                      And many thanks to the participants who made the whole affair a fun and friendly event which would bear repeating.
