Default Royal Palm Raceway

I thought Royal Palm Raceway in Miami could use a thread. Just curious to see how many people are going and racing there and who plans to come?

It is a great track with great people racing.

I will have to get the specs for you but it is big, but not as big as kissimmee i don't think. I personally think it has the best layout that i have seen for a permanent track. Its no so big (like kissimmee) that you are on the throttle all the time. You need to have a good setup for it to work and it has some nice turns.

I raced on it on sunday. I needed to do some setups, but some of the guys helped me out. Next time i go I know what tires and a little more of how i want it setup.

BTW, the body help up nice. I have a cut in it but i'm going to repair it. check your PM

Kev, you gotta get your butt down here. The track is very nice. Bigger than Palm Bay, but not like Kissimme where it's wide open. You need to have a decent setup to run. The chellenging thing is when it gets windy and the leaves start to invade

I honestly can't see driving 4 hours to race there when I have Kissimmee an hour away. Don't get me wrong, I would like to race there but the distance hampers any though of that unless it was a FORGAS State Race. I do understand you do travel here to race but you also have family here. The only thing that ties me to Miami is my cellphone and clothes that were stolen out of my work truck. I will get with you and maybe I can stay the weekend with you or soemthing and bring the family.

I understand. Miami is brutal to outsiders. Hey, we are our own country down here. The wife and I still want to move up to your area but in the meantime we may rent a bigger place. When we do (should be fairly soon) i'll let you know and you can bring the family down here. Your wife and my wife can shop (we have a mall down here that's like 2 miles big) and we can go racing. It would be cool to race with you in my neck of the woods.....er concrete.

That was copied and pasted right from the FORGAS website.

The trophy presentation is now in miami to "Grandfather" the track into the series because Andy couldn't be there at the sour grapes to represent his track, so we did our best to accomodate him. FORGASS is expanding and with the new tracks, could be even bigger in 2005-2006...

We already added one race this season to the schedule, maybe another the next, or one track could have to give up it's second race, which I don't want to see happen...

I can't wait. It'll bring new faces into the series!
