      Chris
      Monday is an odd numbered race day so it should be C2.
      I PM'ed you today about some of your questions.

        C2's on 11/1/11

        Thanks, Dan !
        Yes, C2's for the third race on 11/1 (odd numbered day).
        Two odd numbered days of the month in a row, 10/25 & 11/1, = C2's.
        I corrected last week's race report (10/25), to say C2's tomorrow.

          Race results for 11/1/10

          Monday, 11/1/11.
          9 drivers came, so, with Billy's help "on the button" (thanks Billy!), we were
          able to run fully marshalled races.
          Chris and Roger came from the far side of Rochester!
          Team Big Tree Speedway had a different twist this week: Russ (the usual team chauffeur)
          rode with George (who came from Springville). Welcome back George!
          Something about auditioning apprentice chauffeurs ...

          DP

          Yellow Dog ran the only Fly (this one a "hybrid", with an orange endbell motor).
          Al has been wanting a Sideways Racer for some time, and couldn't wait to run his new
          birthday present, a Sideways Racer DP.
          In a very close race for position, Yellow Dog won by just over a lap, with finishers
          2 - 5 separated by only .40 lap.

          1.Yellow Dog, 58.70 laps
          2.George, 57.65
          3.Ron, 57.50
          4.Roger, 57.25
          5.Russ, 57.20
          6.Tom, 56.85
          7.Al, 55.85
          8.Chris, 54.85
          9.Steve, 41.75 (electrical: blown fuse)

          fast laps
          yellow, Ron 12.018 seconds
          black, Yellow Dog 11.992
          white, Ron 11.952
          red, Yellow Dog 12.205

          Can Am

          Three drivers ran Fly Porsche's (Yellow Dog his "rising sun" 908, Ron & Russ
          917's). Chris drove his NSR 917 "hybrid" (orange end bell motor). The rest of the
          field had Slot-It Chaparral's, Ferrari 312's, or an Alfa. The winner was a Slot-It
          Alfa, with Fly's finishing 2 - 4. A close race saw positions 1 - 3 separated by
          .45 lap, and positions 1 - 6 separated by 1.45 laps.

          1.Tom, 57.50 laps
          2.Yellow Dog, 57.35
          3.Russ, 57.05
          4.Ron, 56.70
          5.George, 56.25
          6.Steve, 56.05
          7.Al, 55.85
          8.Chris, 55.60
          9.Roger, 54.50

          fast laps:
          yellow, Ron 12.152 seconds
          black, Al 11.921
          white, Al 11.843
          red, Steve 12.195

          Slot-It Group C2

          The field consisted mostly of Porsche 956's, with a 962, a couple of Mazda's, and a
          Jaguar. The finish was close, with only 6 inches separating George's "Boss" 956 (second
          place) from the winner Russ' "Obermaier Racing (Disney)" 956. Positions 1 - 4 were
          separated by 1.25 laps.

          1.Russ, 59.50 laps
          2.George, 59.50
          3.Tom, 58.95
          4.Ron, 58.25
          5.Roger, 57.85
          6.Chris, 56.85
          7.Al, 56.45
          8.Yellow Dog, 55.40
          9.Steve, 10.40 (mechanical: gears)

          fast laps:
          yellow, Russ 11.588 seconds (Swept by Russ)
          black, Russ 11.534
          white, Russ 11.428
          red, Russ 11.626

          Thanks to those who came to race, and to Ron for the track time.

          Next Monday (11/8) is an even numbered day, so the third race will be GT's.

              Monday, 11/8 no magnet race results

              Five drivers came, which was enough to race under "crash and burn" rules (you lose
              one lap for every 3 "offs", cumulative over the four heats of the race). We gave Billy
              the night off (of the button), and he didn't know what to do with himself - ha!

              Team Big Tree Speedway didn't make it. Steve had to work, and I think Russ couldn't
              bear the thought of driving alone - ha!
              Gary is driving "opposite hand", as he recuperates.
              Roger made it in!

              DP

              Yellow Dog entered his hybrid Fly (with an orange endbell), while everyone else ran
              Sideways Racer DP's. A very close race followed, with the top 3 finishers within
              .25 lap of one another, and all 5 racers within 1.85 laps. Two drivers lost one lap
              due to excessive offs.

              1.Yellow Dog, 57.30 laps
              2.Tom, 57.20
              3.Roger, 57.05
              4.Gary, 56.55
              5.Al, 55.45

              fast laps:
              yellow, Gary 11.907 seconds
              black, Al 11.939
              white, Gary 11.901
              red, Gary 12.274

              Can Am

              Four drivers entered Slot-It's (Alfa, Chaparral, & 2 Ferrari 312's), and Yellow Dog put up
              his Fly Porsche 908 (known to the drivers as the "Rising Sun"). Al, Yellow Dog, & Tom went
              at it for the win, many heats, driving next to one another - to add to the excitement.
              It was a close race, with the top 4 finishers ending up within .95 lap of one another.
              The winner was determined by less than 2 feet, with the #2 finisher closing the gap.

              1.Tom, 57.75 laps
              2.Al, 57.75
              3.Yellow Dog, 57.02
              4.Roger, 56.80
              5.Gary, 55.95

              fast laps:
              yellow, Gary 12.017 seconds
              black, Tom 12.025
              white, Al 11.936
              red, Gary 12.206

              GT

              The all Slot-It field was heavy with Nissan's (two short tail, and one long tail).
              A McClaren, and a Ferrari F40 rounded out the entries. The pressure was on, with the
              faster GT cars, and two drivers lost 2 laps each, due to excessive offs. The top 3 finishers
              were within .78 lap of one another.

              Al's wife told him to "go have fun", and he really did! No amount of "psycological warfare",
              by the other drivers, in both the Can Am & the GT race, could get him to get 3 offs.
              He, and his Ferrari F40, were a force to be reckoned with. Al also had all the fast laps,
              while driving to his first GT win. Congratulations, Al !

              1.Al, 58.80 laps
              2.Yellow Dog, 58.05
              3.Tom, 58.02
              4.Gary, 54.70
              5.Roger, 53.02

              fast laps:
              yellow, 11.741 seconds (all fast laps were set by Al !)
              black, 11.807
              white, 11.594
              red, 11.898

              Thanks to all who came. Thanks to Ron, at Ace Hobby, for the track time.

              A special "Get Well Soon" goes out to Ron !

              Next Monday, 11/15, is an odd numbered day of the month, so the third race will be
              Slot-It Group C2 cars.

                I had the race report (in the usual "long" format) almost all typed in, and lost it all with
                an errant key stroke towards the end. Sorry.
                This will now be the short version...

                7 racers, marshalled except for two turns (track calls). Thanks to Billy for running the
                button for us.

                              10 drivers came, which allowed for fully marshalled races.
                              Team Bigtree Speedway was there in force, with 4 drivers. Chris came from
                              the far side of Rochester, and Roger made it also. Gary was driving with his
                              dominant hand - finally.

                              DP

                              Yellow Dog had the only Fly DP, with the rest being Sideways Racers.
                              George won by 1.40 laps with a high lap total for DP's. Positions 2 - 5 finished
                              within .75 lap of one another.

                              Slot-It Chaparral's, an NSR Porsche 917 & a P 68, and a Slot-It Alfa. A close race,
                              with positions 1 - 6 finishing within 1.40 laps of one another. Al's Chaparral & George's
                              Ferrari 312 were at the top of the finishers.

                                Great racing George! Good close racing by all. And I believe I did my personal best with each race having laps in the 57's. See you guys Monday.
