19T is by far the most interesting class.

We planned to have live coverage, we did for about a half day until the hotel or my ISP starting blocking us from getting there. We do have live free streaming video and audio and results of every lap practice and qualifing with the standings after each race.

There is always next year.

Yea, it's more interesting than mod. You get the fast "stock" guys in there with the top mod drivers and get a good feel for where people really stand. It's the only real middle ground. Plus, basically nobody races mod with foams on carpet other than pros, but plenty of us race 19T. A LOT more people can relate to 19T than mod, ya know?

The internet issues for us here and the feeds was caused by a wireless "station" that needed to be rebooted to clear out the orphaned/defunt connections. I told them on Tuesday that I've talked
the internet provider helpdesk to confim it and asked them to take a 45
second "outage" to increase the bandwidth on the intranet and then everyone could get back on.. They finally did it this afternoon.....

Don't know if the reboot helped the internet access but it good to be back on line....

And do not believe the rumor that the guy in the sunglasses in one of the qualifiers needed a seeing eye dog to find his way around the track.. Eye problems that seemed to have been solved....

Oh and BTW I ( and other first time racers ) are extremly impressed with how this event has run so far...
The RCThunder crew has really got their act together...

Tech... Smooth..... Schedule... Easy to follow and understand.....
The racers and sponsors have been friendly and helpful.

Even the Oval racers have been very polite.. Just kidding!!!!!!!
