I'd like to thank Doug for getting the ball rolling with the organization, and all the work with BL motors and other issues. He did a lot to promote the class to grow all over by sharing these ideas.

We also can't forget everybody who gave us the inspiration, from Green Bay, Trackside, Montana, etc. It's a great class.

Also, at some point soon, the website will be transferred to a new host, as Doug was cool enough to host it at his apexspeed site. The domain should remain the same, but it may experience some downtime.

Doug, I wish to say your wisdom will be missed. Thanks for all you have done. I think VTA will live a long life because of your efforts. Pop in once and a awhile to say hi. Big Jim

I recieved a race report from Indy...via..pm

FYI - racing recap from 5/01/2009

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Find more info on Indy Slots VTA racing at - http://www.hobbytalk.com/bbs1/showthread.php?t=211698)

Quick VTA racing recap from last night.

We had another good turnout - 24 cars. We had three 8 car heats which ends up being good practice for racing in traffic. The race director tried something different last night by having 4 mains with 6 cars set in the A-C mains. In the D we had 8 cars. In all lower VTA mains, the top 2 cars bumped up. I thought that added a nice twist.

In the D main, Brian VanderVeen finally knocked off the rust and took the win. Steve Larracey ran his usual steady pace to finish 2nd.

In the C main, Jordan Wahl grabbed the lead late from Brian VanderVeen to take the win. Brian V. finished 2nd to earn his 2nd bump-up of the night.

In the B main, we saw the closest racing of the night. Brian VanderVeen started off strong and was looking to bump his way all the way from the D to A, but tangled a bit with traffic late and fell to 4th. Steve Martin was running good late and ended up in 3rd. Charlie Auterburn was in a solid 2nd for most of the race, but tangled with traffic and fell back. However, Charlie had a good car and drove his way back into the top 2 in the last minutes to earn the bump to the A. Rockie Piccione was struggling with a bad servo in qualifying, but got a loaner from one of our helpful racers. In his 2nd night of racing VTA, he drove his FTTC4 with a Havok speed control to 1st in the B main.

On a special note Tom Johnson brought out his TT-01R and was qualified 8th overall. Tom was also running the Havok speed control, which proves again that any car and any speed control will work great in VTA at Indy Slots.

In the A main, the 1st turn got a bit bunched up and mixed up the field. TQ Mark Lyons and 3rd place Brian Smith were able to jump out ahead of the pack. Mark got tangled a bit with traffic allowing Brian to grab the lead. Brian was able to build a 1/2 track lead, but was looking in his mirrors and ended up short-turning 1 too many corners. This allowed Mark to catch back up and pass for the lead as Brian was stuck on a corner. Mark drove away to take the win, Brian ended up in 2nd, and Brock Lyons in 3rd.

nice write up
