Jason, Hope you took better notes about the race and cars cause I'm a Toledo 1/8th Racer (as from Toledo), and proud of it!

It has been a while since I've enjoyed a RC weekend as much as this one. A great mix of old friends and new, throw in some Noah and (FAST)III action! I loved it. Wish you all could have been here!

The WRC people should feel good about getting Jason on board. Other then the poor note keeping and always being late, this guy drove a great race and was lots of fun to be around.

Old School was pretty darn cool too, getting to watch him run his Motonica in a race after waiting 3 years, was outstanding.

Loran Whiting put on a good show with their rubber band French Fry car, (Ned, you would have been proud). Throw in a appearance by long lost Farmer John. It was GREAT!!

Sounds and looks like y'all had a great time! I checked out the JLap daily and think I got a bit of an idea of how it went.

Edit the "1/8" or I'll have Herbie come looking for you!!!

You gotta cut him some slack, Lon. He lives in New York City, and you know how New Yorkers think about geography...



He's usually late around here, too.

Thanks for helping us jump start getting set ups for the car - 40 fronts and 10K diff oil from the instructions aren't the hot tip

Default Cleveland vs. Toledo

Yeah, we should cut some slack. I'm originally from Toledo too and almost "corrected" that when I read it. We still remember when Cleveland had rivers that caught on fire! Guess we don't want to be connected with that!!

Oldschool thought the entire "Midwest Crew" was pretty darn cool also. It was an absolute pleasure to meet and race with all of you! And I will make every effort to be back next year.

Amazing week of racing at the Great Lakes Challenge! We are very excited to have a win for WRC running the GT Due with the excellent pit work of Jari Taskila. Thanks to Lon Burling Sr. for all of his technical support and for helping everyone in the pan class all week, including his two very fast grandsons.

Congratulations are in order for Joe Tuttle for the TQ. Joe was fast throughout the qualification rounds and ran very quick laps in the A-main. Loran Whiting for taking second place with a very consistent and smooth run, and Noah Belleville for taking third place laying down fast laps, and the rest of the guys who ran with us in the main: Dave Toth, Phil Cring, Dave Strausbaugh, and Gene Greer. It was a blast.

Also Lon Burling III took Top Speed honors in Q3 with his Novarossi powered WRC GT Due! Great Job representing WRC Lon III !

Thanks to Dave Toth for stirring up interest in the Northeast for pan car racing. We have been planning this GLC trip all spring and everything came together, and we finally got to run together on this amazing track!

Default Couple of interesting things...

Here are a couple of interesting things I found...

The first one is an article on the assembly of the WRC car that won the GLC and is available here: http://brooklynhobbies.com/wrc-gt-duo-nitro-kit

This appears to be a draft of Classic Pan rules in the same format that ROAR uses??

The pan class was pretty cool alright. The variety of cars is one thing I really like about the class. The WRC cars look really good but our newly renamed rubber band French fry DFX Premium car actually ran pretty good considering I spent almost zero time on it and Loran only ran the first qualifier with it due to the head mechanic being slightly over loaded. Ha. Good times.

The Hoosier from New York? You'll never recover.

Gary, Thanks for the map in case I go to New York to race.

The DFX car in the hands of any Whiting (much less Loran) is a tough combo on race day! Low work load is one of the things that make the pan class more laid back and still fun to race. I'd say you did just the right amount of work with the rubber band!
