Way to go John and Marty! I'm sure the drivers here will be looking for similar results at every race. The first one is going to be pretty wild on the short course.

It takes two to tango right? Got to have a builder and a driver and in this case it seems you cannot congradulate one without the other. Batman? could be but I thought that was another city. You guys are killing me, Im ready to start making some laps!

First race, Sunday June 11th at Chattanooga Motorcycles at 11 pm. I just got word from Cleveland Tn. That an owner of an apartment complex wants us to bring the series to his place soon. He was standing there next to the hobbyshop owner and begging for us to have a race on his lot. I asked if he had a electric outlet there to run the computer and he said. YES! I have 114 of them plus mens and womens restrooms, vending machines and swimming pool. Hmm,we might have to schedule more than one race there this year. Let me think...OK!

After checking out the deal at the new track and hobby shop in Calhoun Ga they will by all means be on the AllStar tour. Too much to list here so get the info from Georgia tracks in the main menu. Lots of thing going on at that new facility.

Default First series race.

Everybody make a note. Never EVER! schedule a race during the riverbend festival if your track is near Chattanooga TN. I did this two years ago and ended up with 4 racers instead of 40+. Live and learn
Now for those that did make it WOW and seriously WOW. This series is going to be a killer for the whole year. The MLP and Hyperdrive guys have been going back and forth in the pits leading up to this and they put on an incredible race. The team drivers were pushing so hard to win the first event we just new something would happen, and it did. They pretty much went out of control and handed the win to a stock (but full option ) F201 in the main. Lots more to tell but no room. Everyone went super fast for the win and now the no-shows have been calling to see what they missed. That's cool, gotta have family time at some point
More info later and plenty to tell.

Results.
Formula 1
1.Patrick Lowery Tam 201
2.Randy Holbrook Tam 201
3. Brett Mcgee HPI F1
4.Heath Mahar Hyperdrive
5.Jamie Spurgin MLP
6.Gary Williams Tam 102
7.Richard Hall Traxxas X-F1

Touring B
1. Eric Terrill assc.
2. Dexter Gardenhire assc.
3. Brett Mcgee Schumacher
4. Randy Holbrook Tamiya
5 Richard Hall Schumacher

Touring A
1.Chris Cooper Corally
2. Heath Mahar Corally
3. Jimmy Hawkins Barracuda
4. Byron Smart assc.
5. Kevin Wellsted Tamiya

Man, even the 1/12th guys were on the river. No prob, I told everyone if they miss the next on I will draw a circle and make them stand in the corner.

Wow this is a fun series! I managed to steal away with a 2nd place finish in the first race with my stock F201 due to some bad luck on the part of some of the fast guys with the MLP and Hyperdrive chassis and the help of the race director loaning me some tires for the main. I've got an HPI F1 on the way now and am anxious to see how it performs. Everyone needs to take a look at these F1 cars because they are tremendous fun and relatively inexpensive. I just wish there were more manufacturers that made cars and parts for us. Hopefully this thing will continue to grow and the manufacturers will take notice.

Please let me know the dates for the Factory Drivers F1 Challenge, I might have to fly out there and have some fun! Just for anyone who's wondering what Team MLP might bring out to play, just know this......82.4mph......
And there's still time for more development..........
It's great to see people committed to bringing back F1, you guys are awesome, thanks for all the compliments to MLP!

Cool

No brag just fact! What we say about the cars is just mentioning how they perform, they speak for themselves on the track. The best part is the people like GT40 out there having the time of their life racing with us. Yes, we are doing everything we can to promote this series here. And we hope everyone who reads this will do the same in their area next year. That is our goal to make next year twice as big and put other clubs and tracks on the same page for racing. Are you going to be on the MLP factory team at the Challenge? I think MLP will have an A and B team for this one to enter the different cars for the cup. As of now it is MLP, Hyperdrive,Tamiya,Corally, Nikko, and I'm pretty sure R/CIndycars wants some of this also. That's seven teams and fourteen cars going for the builders cup to see who gets to brag for a year on being #1. Can't wait

Not trying to brag, just messing around... (A number is just a number!) I really respect all you guys for your passion and commitment to have fun, that's what this hobby is all about. As far as Team MLP Drivers being at the Challenge, hopefully I'll be able to make it out there, it sounds like a great time. (Nikko might want to stay home... ) As of right now, I have not arranged yet for any Team MLP Drivers to be there. What are the exact dates? Good to see some of you running the MLP cars, if I can be of any assitance, let me know. We are also trying to get a 6-track series started in the Northeast, and down here in Southern California. You guys are awesome!!!

Well forgive me if I am worng here but I thought it was a one race deal all of you race your season and then in mid year you have a one race Manufacturers cup or race for the bragging rights for the year!
and the specs were Unlimited for this one race deal.

Right wrong ?????

That's the deal! Cooper and I will set a date for the Challenge and it will happen at or towards the end of the F1 tour. And your right about the rules...what rules! The only thing now is how each team paints the bodies. Other than that well, we will see.
