    And some last pics for the series.





















    This driver's course with few straightaway blasts showed the top stock class cars weren't much far behind the more powerful modified cars. Smooth and driveable and not necessarily straight fast is good.

    The no. 63's guide tongue fix survived the running quite well so that kept the record of no DNFs intact. That's a testament of the hardy builds of these little cars. A few modeling details broke off but that's not unheard of.

    Thanks to our drivers, Luf (oldslotracer), Keith (RetroRacer44) and Don C, also our track host. Special thanks to Fran, Don's wife, for feeding us with her delicious chilli, vegetables and beverages.

    This concludes the running of the U13 Challenge proxy. Check the scoring thread for the final results and a wrap up topic.

    I have never seen a basically stock Mini run as well as your #177. It was putting out as much as possible from that car, and was not that far off the lead and well ahead of many scratch builds. I look forward to racing your car in the GVSCC Targa Proxy later this year.

    May I just add my appreciation to the hosts, drivers and builders of some of the neatest "little" cars brought together to compete. The organizers and hosts did a great job of running these events in such a timely fashion. It was my second Proxy and definitely learned a lot. I know for sure that a stock car/chassis such as the little 177 cannot compete on the various tracks with the custom built chassis that have been so well thought out and constructed...little master pieces. Thank you for letting me participate with some true masters.
    I hope this returns next year.
    Thank you,
    Aloha

    177 and very slow 162

    Yes, I agree with Mether05, cudos to all! This has been the speediest proxy ever! Maybe we should try to line up another 10 tracks or so to host - that would be a hoot!
