  • A Big Thankyou!

    I want to give out a big thank you to GT-SRC and the boys at Race Haven for welcoming old returning slot car racers into the fold. What a great group of fellows these GT-SRC racers are!

    Until recently, the last time I raced a slot car was an AFX G-Plus on a couple of club tracks about 16 years ago and it has been over 20 years since I have raced on wood. Two and a half weeks ago I went to Race Haven and got the lowdown on the GT-SRC races that were taking place on Friday night's. I bought myself a car for the Porsche series and came back four days later for my return to "competive slot racing." Running my stock Slot It Porsche in both the Stock and Super Series races, I did okay my first time out, other than the fact that I tend to drive over my head from time to time with too many offs. The main thing was that I had fun and the people I raced against are helpful and friendly. So I ended up buying another car just for the Super Series, racing again this past Friday and improving a bit, shakin off the rust as they say.

    Congrats to GT-SRC for having a great format to equalize the racing and keeping cost under control while using really good quality cars. For the Stock Slot It Porsche Series, using all similar Porsches is terriffic. The cars really are close and handle well with a bit of setup. Having the Super Series allowing pretty much any Slot It chassis and any Slot It parts is really neat too, allowing for a bit more creativity while still keeping a pretty even playing field for everyone. The big bonus is that you are using so many of the same parts for each series. Very nice!

    Thanks also to Ronnie and Pete for their help in providing me with advice and all the parts I needed to get started and keep me running.

    Also thanks, or maybe I shouldn't thank, Chris Walker for planting the seeds of returning to racing on wood. Now I have another hobby on the go!

    I hooked up with and old friend, Brian Ferguson from the O'Connor Raceway days and brought him out for his return this past week. He had fun too. For myself this week was simply, a Blast!

    Cheers

      Hi Tom,

      Thank you very much for the kind words. We pride ourselves on having a friendly and welcoming atmosphere at Race Haven Hobbies. I am very happy to have you racing and I look forward to many good times ahead.

      See you Friday!

      BTW - Brian already bought a second car. I think he is hooked too!

        Hooked? Understatement!!

        I have to echo Tom's comments! Race Haven is a great venue and the GT-SRC guys are a great bunch! I had such a blast on Friday that I went back and bought a second car - gotta have a 'T' car, right? Great shop, great track, great guys!

        Oh, and Tom, you think YOU have rust? I did some math... you're about right on the 16 years since we raced mag-car HO, but as for the larger scale on wood? For ME, it's been about 32 years!! I don't just have rust, I need a full restoration!

        PS - Ronnie, if Tom asks where the Hudy went, just do this...

          I was surprised to meet Fergie after getting to know him a bit on another board for a few years.

          I restrained myself on Sat. I had so much fun with personal bests in both races on Fri I wanted to go back and run a few laps Sat. Alas, I stayed home and did the laundry and worked on my cars.

          See you all on Friday.

          PS I hope we start another Porsche Series after this one.
