It was such a great day of racing with Formula R/C! Thanks to all who made the trip to Oshkosh for the fun. A huge F1 turnout, as well as a very nice field of VTA and GT, with close racing to boot. Keep in mind that all of the races are available for review on HobbyTown Oshkosh :: Broadcast and Results :: LiveRC. You can get your race data, as well as watch the race videos of your performance.

Remember, the season start is in two weeks on June 3rd. If you need more shake down time, Hobbytown USA's Club program will be racing next week, so bring them out.

Thanks for a memorable day!

You're podium winners are...

1 Mark Sweeny
2 Eric Gottsacker
3 Matt Dobberke

VTA

1 Mark Farley
2 Aaron Hardy
3 Carl Seils

Just a reminder, the first in the Formula RC road course series is this Saturday at the Oshkosh facility. 8th street door opens at 9. Please park on 8th street, save the lot for the regular hobbytown customers.

Please note, Sedan will be run as an exhibition class, all 6 minute runs. Bring them on. And bring out those minis!

If the F1 racers from our last race show again, plus the ones that weren't available to race from the last race, we may be pushing 14-15 F1 entries, and that would be AWESOME! Let's see if the other classes can up their game as well. We had a great turnout for those classes, and some great racing. Bottom, line, bring them out and get in on the fun.

The A/C will be on as well, lol.

Quite a day at the first three Formula R/C races of the season. We had a record turnout of F1 cars running with 11 in the field. We should of had more that would of put us at 14-16 on the grid, but unfortunately, we had those no shows. In any case THANK YOU to those dedicated racers that did show up. From Iowa to Germantown, to Oakfield and all around...you ran some very clean laps, and were part of a great showing of F1 cars! Keep it up.

GT and VTA also had some close racing as well. We should see more back in the field, as I know some of you had prior engagements that were unavoidable. Don't worry, the field today was happy to pull in a few more points in your absence, lol. They'll need them, as the season is just starting, and the handling of the cars will come in strong.

Thanks again to all of those who attended! Hope you made it home safely. BTW, I'll be bringing some box fans and oscillating fans as well for the next round. Even with the air on, temps were a bit sticky upstairs. Promise that it'll be more comfortable next time around.

Cool.

Nope, never been there. I'd like to, but need to plan ahead in order to race on Sundays. Weekends are so busy in the summer.
