I'm finally back from the 'Birds and sunny Florida. Must say it sure was a nice break from the bitter cold we've had to live with this winter. Livin' in the "Great White North" pretty much sucks these days. Not quite as bad as what Dayger went home to though - 12 feet of fresh snow. Yowsers!
Just wanted to congradulate the 2007 Snowbirds Nationals winners that used Protoform Racebodies. As usual it was a great event that was extremely well run. Kudo's to Mike Boylan and his team for another superb effort!
Congrats to Jilles Groskamp!
Finally, finally got your first huge North American race win. I always knew it was just a matter of ..."when". Thanks for keeping the win streak going on that Protoform DNA1 body too. Still hasn't been beat in north america - in a major event. (6 of 10 in the Pro Mod A-Main used it)
Congrats to Germany's Mark Fischer
in 1/12th GTP Mod. Not only TQ'ed but drove a basically perfect run in the A-Main for the overall Win. (10 out of 10 A-Main qualifiers used the Protoform Speed 12 body)
Congrats to XRay's Martin Hudy
for a great TQ and A-Main win in Touring Car 19Turn Rubber.
For his big Touring Stock Rubber A-Main win, a big Congrats to Jason Ertrachter
who has now proved he's a winner - even when not
on Las Vegas!
Congrats also to Mark Smyka
for his TQ in 1/12th GTP Stock.
Protoform Racebodies were even more dominant in the 1/10th Oval Stock Car classes with 5 TQ's and 5 A-Main wins. (in the 6 oval stockcar classes run)
Many thanks to all who used Protoform products at the 2007 SnowBirds Nationals.
Sincerely - Dale Epp - Protoform
ps: for those of you who may be wondering just when Protoform will start pulling ultra -light sedan bodies in .020 lexan. In a word - NEVER
. In all the years that I've been going to sedan races I've never seen the qualifying and race results more tarnished by "body tuck" and assorted other body problems. I witnessed first hand many
frustrated racers and turn marshals. One-run bodies are just plain bad for racing, bad for the sport and bad for the industry.
