  • SPR 2014 Registration - Incoming deadlines - Jan. 3 postmarked, Jan. 22 received

    Welcome to the 2014 Sprite Proxy Race registration page.

    If you've reviewed the 2014 Rules & Regulations thread and would like to enter, this is the pace to sign up. We'd like to know what category you'd like to enter and a preferred car number.

    We are reserving spots for a few days in the SPR for SCI members who entered last year and have expressed interest to join in again. If I am tracking this correctly, we have the following likely participants in reserved spots:

    SPX (modified):

    1 > VTECFOUR #8. ......

    2 > RetroRacer #44. .....
    3 > Brain #63. ......
    4 > JT #39. .....
    5 > MNewns #13. .....
    6 > Phil #TBD. .....
    7 > charlesx #9.
    8 > BeastLee #666. .....
    9 > Alexis in Greece #4. .....
    10 > Black3sr #71 .....

    Pending:




    HP (stock):

    1 > Pete Shepherd #2. .....
    2 > Alexis in Greece #23. .....
    3 > JT #98. .....
    4 > Doubl-B #7. .....
    5 > RetroRacer #45. .....
    6 > MNewns #33. .....
    7 > dansula .....
    8 > Phil #TBD
    9 > charlesx #5.
    10 > Bob Methe #15
    11 >Black3sr #71 .....

    Pending:
    -- Newso #47.
    -- Fusiler55 #6.

    Note: > symbol before your name means you have reserved your spot! We are determining when entry fee will be due to confirm your registration.

    Please join us. We are planning for about 12 cars in each category, but if the love of Sprites is strong, we may bump up that quota!

    Registration payments due in by November 29, 2013. $25 per car, or $35 for one car in SPX and one in HP, $5 additional per car if entering from outside of US or Canada.

    Thanks guys, I think this proxy should be a bit of fun, with these tiny cars. The orange one was very rushed, but at least it is on the way.

    Glad to see a new entrant's car on the way from one of the hobby's most senior car builders! Our first orange car too - I like it. Phil, easy to drive is often one of the best attributes for a proxy car, looking forward to driving it!

    Deadline, Schmedline?

    Hey Phil:

    What's the point of a deadline if you can't be late for it. It seems in this hobby, a deadline means you still have a week or two. The main thing is that we know your cars are coming, and we will be able to run them in the proxy.

    At least that's my take on it, and I'm the one the cars are coming to.

    Well, I finally posted my cars. We had a big blizzard out here, 5-degree temps and about 20" of snow, so that is my official excuse! (I sure needed one...).

    Despite my best intentions, I am sending last years cars with a light tune up. They are packed with updated SPR Propaganda signs and guardrail graphics to use at the host tracks. Dan and crew did a nice job incorporating them into photos last year. With Keith helping, I expect an even larger extravaganza!

    Boxed it all up, overcame the USPS online shipping tool being offline and rally-raced through the snow-covered streets to the Hamilton, MA post office, passing one of George Patton's Sherman tanks (displayed in "Patton Park" of course) and officially passed the cars into the hands of the USPS!

    Okay Pete, we'll update your car number. Just send the penalty fee to the SPR PayPal account, the more you pay, the better your car performs... I think it is a minimum of one dollar per numerical change in value... (Just kidding)

    Hi, as you may have seen from my other post, please can you put my entry as #27 not #2.

    Thanks,

    Pete

    Is the Hearse Coming?

    Beast;

    How's that beastly Sprite hearse of yours coming along. We need it here to carry off the bodies of dead plastic drivers.

    Besides, we need a few more Canucks in this thing, eh?
