Saturday July 31st

Onroad racing at 11am
Offroad racing at 4pm
Oval racing after the offroad


I know RC3 is running too this weekend and with new schedule we have tried to work around as many conflicts as possible. With the lights soon to be up, planning a Friday night offroad race for once or twice a month and will have that along with other schedule and pictures on the new website in next week or so.

I would like to make a suggestion. Since you don't have a large 1/8 scale class yet, maybe you should make your track for 1/10 scale only.This will help keep the track smooth and the jumps proportional to their size. I believe this will make your place better in the long run.

We have some interest in 1/8 but because the track is smaller than most in the area it is better on the 1/10. We will not make the track undriveable for 1/10 because that is what most of us run and enjoy. At the same time we welcome 1/8 because a lot of people have them and enjoy a smaller track. At this time don't see a problem running both and just having lots of fun.

Looking to get indoor carpet going in November. The track size will be 18x45.

We will be adding more info soon, but are looking to run Oval, Onroad, and maybe Offroad and are wanting to know what everyone has to run so we can start a class list.

Oval- BRP, 1/18 Open, 1/10 Legends?, 1/10 Touring with NASCAR body 4cell?, 1/24?, ??

Onroad- BRP, 1/18 Open, MiniZ, ??

Offroad- 1/18 Corr, 1/18 Truck/Buggy, 1/24?, 1/32?,??

Thanks

James

Onroad racing Saturday at 1pm. Weather showing 70 so should be a good turnout for final 2010 Crete race.
