The grip on this surface really is great. I wish I could have been there Saturday. How was the bigger layout?

Amazing. I have a bunch of layouts on my computer and we all sat around and decided which one looked the best. Lots of fun. Wish that you could have been there.

Thanks for the info on this new location.

Some questions:

1. Where is the location, I know it is off of the 15 and Balboa?
2. What are you using for track barriers?
3. What kind of schedule do you have in mind for running?
4. Access to power for charging etc?

For scoring systems you could do some hand counting like DHW does until you get a timing loop.

Thanks James,
1. First post was edited for location.
2. WE are currently using fire hose and large dots.
3. Currently a random schedual dew to all the races that are going on. I will keep everyone posted. Mostlly saturdays.
4. The building has power and a good amount of it. I don't have extension cords for everyone but please bring your own. If you have a genorator please bring it just in case.

I really think that you need to have lap times to run a good program. You can get by but I really don't like racing like that. Just a personal thing. If there are people that want to set up a mock race I will keep track but not for too many people.

I don't have any pictures with cars on it but I can take some of the parking lot if you want.

For practice days I want to open at 10:00 and close by 7:00.

When we start racing it will depend on the season.

I think you should have some sort of point series with some prizes to give away and a certain amount of throw away races, probably more than the usual amount since you dont have a set schedule yet.

Default Pics of parking lot at 4373 Viewridge ave. San Diego, CA 92123

Drove by the site this evening. Will the track be using the front of the lot, or is there a back part that is not visible from the street?

Here are some pics that I took of the surface of the parking lot in front at the address listed. The surface looked pretty good.

That dosnt look like either of them. Those look pretty rough compared to what I ran on the first time we raced there.
