Well, I've picked up a TC4 and I'm VERY interested in the T/A racing... Any news on that front for HTU GB, MI?

Default racing

racing at htu 2008 is the same as listed above.
(there is no point series)
the only change for this year so far is a "vintage class" (60's muscle car body class),
that will use a selected rubber tire for the class.
but nothing set in stone yet as to when it will start.
(some racers are doing testing on tires.)
so come on over saturday (weather permitting) and race or
just check it out.

hope to see you there!

How long does the racing last? The little guy has a soccer game at 12pm so I wouldn't be able to come check it out until after1-1:30 or so. When and what order do they usually run the classes in? Does it kind of follow what is listed there?

Thanks!

Race time depends on the number of racers and number of classes
(usually racing is done between 3:30-5:30)
we run 3-qualifiers then the main
class running order usually is
round 1,2,3,main
nitro truck
nitro touring car 1/10th scale
electric 18th scale
electric touring 1/10th scale
etc.
etc.

again race time depends on number of racers and classes,
you could call hobby shop for race progress update after
little guys soccer game.
