Hi Guys,

This is the Race Report from last Friday night. Race #2 in the season. We had 18 entries with Rennsport and Open Mods running. Here is how the evening went.......

Nice Run Gleno! He Reclaimed the Lap Total Record nicely!

Steves car looks like it was back! Until a late race mixup and it accidentally ended up on the floor..........Steve made the best of it but it no doubt cost him a better result. Nice sportsmanship Steve!

Steve - 186 35'
Ronnie - 185 75'

Glen - 6.527 (G)

Great Iron Racing guys! The rule set must be better this year with S-Can and Boxer powered cars running really close to each other with identical gear ratios.

Steve ran fast and flawless to take the Win. Jim's records finally came off the board from at least a year ago! Speaking of Jim!? Where are you buddy? You need to come out and reclaim some records!

Now onto Open Mods......

Ronnie - 196 54'
Glen - 193 44'
Johnny - 192 33'
Steve - 191 60'
Charles - 184 61'
Dave - 175 72'
Jared - 167 56'
Jeff - 160 56'

Fast Laps

Ronnie - 5.866 (B)
Glen - 5.931 (R)
Johnny - 6.071 (R)
Steve - 5.955 (B)
Charles - 6.104 (G)
Dave - 6.239 (B)
Jared - 6.649 (G)
Jeff - 6.799 (P)

What a great Mod Race! 3 racers in the 5's and Johnny was super close too. Records fell, Fun was had!

Rennsport and Open Mods are up next Friday night for 2 weeks. I am going to do the Championship totals thus far this week and get them posted.

Thanks to everyone that makes the trek out here to race Friday nights! The track was fantastic Friday night and it should get faster and faster for the next couple months!

Race Haven Hobbies, Brampton, Ontario. Come one, Come all! Never Raced a slot car before? DOESN'T MATTER!!! Come out, we will get you started. Great Guys, and Great Racing is what this place is all about!

Hi Guys,

It was a Fun and Frustrating night last night. Rennsport was Fun, Mods were Frustrating! Something happened to the track between races and for some reason it was really dirty. I think I am going to eliminate practice between races. So this means you will have to test your Mod car beofre the first race starts. Just an idea I am playing with so any input is welcomed.

Now onto the results.......

Rennsport

Ronnie - 185 43'
Glen - 184 74'
Charles - 183 34'
Ravi - 173 21'
Dave - 170 45'
Gabriel - 170 40'
Joe - 169 7'
Bill D - 152 5'
David - 142 66'

Fast Laps

Ronnie - 6.087 (B)
Glen - 6.216 (G)
Charles - 6.054 (G)
Ravi - 6.534 (R)
Dave - 6.396 (R)
Gabriel - 6.316 (P)
Joe - 6.639 (G)
Bill D - 6.842 (G)
David - 6.974 (G)

This is a really fun class. It is amazing how fast a properly geared Orange Endbell will go around the track! Now onto Open Mods.......

Open Modifieds

Charles - 189 18'
Ronnie - 188 60'
Ravi - 177 72'
Dave - 172 20'
Joe - 168 36'
Bill D - 160 2'
Glen - Pile up over the bridge = Broken Car

Fast Laps

Charles - 5.953 (R)
Ronnie - 6.034 (R)
Ravi - 6.379 (R)
Dave - 6.372 (B)
Joe - 6.554 (R)
Bill D - 6.598 (G)
Glen - 6.744 (P)

Like I had mentioned at the start of the post, something happened to the track between races. I have not felt my car that loose in ages! It was a battle of who could skate their car around the best and Charles won that battle. Nice Run Charlie!

Ravi scraped together a podium finish, very nice.

Here is to hoping the track comes back for Friday. Glen and I tested 1/32nd's all day today and it is just as fast as ever. Very Weird.

Until next Friday night Gentleman........

1/24th's are up tomorrow and I CAN'T WAIT!!! See you all tomorrow. Thanks to everyone that races here!!!

Charles took in Open? Way to go Charlie!

Re the track. I've noticed it tends to get slippery for the 2nd race of the night often. (Did at the old store too) I think it could be due to it getting colder or moist. Two reasons I can think of ....

1 - Racers go downstairs and out the door a lot between races and the air temperature and humidity changes. This could be especially true last night as it wasn't as cold and there was a lot more humidy in the air.

2 - Although there is practice, not all the lanes are used and, combined with reason 1 above, as well as possible dust from more movement around the track between races, the lanes pick up some dirt and moisture.

My preference would be to leave the practice session alone. It certainly benefits late comers.

Yes she did. She sits on a panel for the CamAm Drag Racing Series.

......and she drives a 9 second Drag Car......pretty well I might add.

She is a 2 Time CanAm Series Champion.
