Mark, I will see you at the RCPRO nationals and then at the Timezone race. If you put something together in Colorado, we will bring a bunch from Utah. Keep us posted.

Tabushi...

We used to plan on the Ron Paris Memorial in Las Vegas but that track is not running any events at present.

In that time frame, you'll want to keep tabs on the Texas race schedules, they're really active and heavily GT friendly.

I would just like to let everyone know about the Byron Challenge for this year. It will be June 22-24. The race is at Leisure Hours Raceway in Joliet, IL. Last year we had almost 3 full heat of GT with this year looking even better. It's a very nice facility and track to race at. It could be the biggest turnout for a GT race in the states this year. So if you want to run with very good competition and many GT racers you won't be disappointed if you attend this race. Hope to see many of you there.

Count me in for this one Mike!!! It will be my first Byrons Challenge race (been trying to make it there for some time). I might run some touring car or 8th scale Lola as well but GT for sure.
