Another +1 for track pics here. Looking to come and check it out soon... Sorry I missed the open house.

Sounds like it's coming together really nice out at PRP. I don't live too far away and would be interested in running out there steadily once a race program is put together. Thanks and keep us posted on any upcoming events.

just my .02, i think you need track marshalls for practice events. Guys were getting grumpy with having to walk out on the track to flip their cars, its not like its a small track.. No one ends up on the nice drivers stand, cuz their too busy marshalling their own cars.

Default Thursday Evening Practice

I attended the practice this evening and found the track to be awesome! The off-track wet areas have been regraded, the jumps have been adjusted and dressed, and the track handled the 5:00 PM shower very well. After about a 20 min. wait, the remainder of the evening was a blast with excellent traction, smooth surface, and good company. Good job on the track modifications Adam! Looking forward to the Saturday practice, should be a nice day.

+1. But it looks like so far it's just a "practice" track. I kinda get the feeling it is going to remain a "practice" facility.

BUT, I wish I could race there.

So, I will be ready whenever you are. I have the buggy, the transponder, the fuel, the tires, the spare parts.... Darn it, I have everything I need to race. Heck, I will even bust out the Revo if somebody wants to race MT's. It's all set up too, with transponder, etc..

I just gave 2 Losi gas trucks (with enough spare parts to last a couple years,), to a terminaly ill child (12 yrs old) of one of my freinds. He wants to drive every day, and wants to start wrenching on it too. His dad is glad to see his enthusiasm, and keeps asking me when we are racing next because he wants to bring his boy. If he likes it, I may give up the buggy (and get a new one) so he can have some fun racing with a more reliable vehicle. I have been telling him about the track, but I have just been waiting for news of racing.

I am most likely going to attend a practice, but I can't really justify paying to bash every weekend.
