Here's a pic of racers in Southern California. Tony Phalen (the guy with the Renault T-Shirt) is the ROAR F1 Champion and ROAR VTA Champion. When he was at the ROAR Carpet Nats in Dallas last month, Tony said that he wanted to get a VTA class started in So. Cal. It looks like there's at least one more VTA driver in this pic.

Thats at least a solid USGT car. Or RCSports car, but it lacks the legal wheels and tires to be VTA.

I got the scoop from Tony about that picture. That particular track in So. Cal. has a fledgling VTA class. 4 guys showed up to race VTA that morning. We need to cheer them on. Let them know how much fun VTA is.
