To all - here's a couple sneak peaks of the almost-finished product!









I can definitely say that the Andys, the Lonzos, Lokays, and everyone else that helped out did an absolute fantastic job and I can't wait to start racing! Good luck to everyone going out next Fri and let's make this a great opening weekend!

Looks great!

Questions I have:

Are you guys planning on "Ifmar" style qualifying.

What are the length on qualifiers and mains?

Tire additives allowed? (I take it odor free here if at all).

For off-road we will have 2 five min qualifiers and then be re seeded for the 5mins main. Heats are random, and heads up, then the field is flipped so everyone has the same chance/ average starting possition. We might run touring car differently, Where you are on your own clock rather than heads up qualifying.

HummMMm im thinking of converting a couple of my old kits to run carpet offroad. Matt stoltz check ur pm Also may consider onroad. I would like to run 1/12 scale. Do you guys plan on doing touring car or 12? I saw touring mentioned but didnt know days etc?? Thanks. Also facility looks good and for me its alot closer than bradenville/latrobe. I raced here along time ago. Probaly like in 99 or so back when it was at the old post office in latrobe.

IFMAR qualifying is much less stressful with regards to you don't have to worry about the other cars on the track - you just drive your race and that's it. That's one thing I always hated about Bradenville from the time I started racing there back in '05 - they don't run IFMAR even though the computer system is able to, and then you get that one guy who tries to race you and takes you out/ruins your heat. It's the only track I've ever been to where they run heads up and to me it's just a really antiquated system that causes more animosity between the racers because you can't get a clean heat in no matter what you do.

Rob - hope to see you get something together! It'll be nice to have some guys with factory representation at the track.

As far as qualifying goes, either way someone will be trying to run their fastest pace and one way or another you have the possibility of being wrecked. Haha the only way to eliminate this factor is to run one vehicle at a time...

Rob and carcrusher you both have pms

It was pretty late and I just ended up not sending anything...

On another note everyone running on-road and oval we will also be opened and running those classes Saturday and Sunday. I will post times when I know what they are. We will ask you guys when you would like to run and then have a set time for the rest of the weekends.
Remember Friday Jan 14 will be off-road check the website for rules classes and times ptraceway.com
