Default REEDY RACE 2008 IS ON!!!!!

AS THEY SAY.... THE SHOW MUST GO ON.... AND IT IS!!!!!!

What started out many years ago as a Vision that Mike Reedy had to showcase the top drivers in the world in a format unlike any other ever used in RC racing has grown to be one of the most anticipated and exciting races anywhere in the world. And I am proud to say Mike's vision and event will continue!

We are proud to announce the 2008 Reedy Race of Champions will be held May 22,23,24,25th 2008 at SpeedWorld Raceway in RoseVille CA, near Sacramento.

It is again a great honor to be asked to organize and race direct one of the greatest events in our industry. We wanted to get this announcement out as soon as everything was confirmed so everyone can start planning. The Entry forms, Rules, Hotel info ect, ect, ect. will be finished up in the next week and we will have that online asap.

Format and schedule for the event will remain as it has for many years.
Thurs- 22nd 4 rounds of practice by heats
Friday- 23rd 4 rounds of practice by heats
Sat. -24th 3 round quals ... 4 invite rounds
Sun. -25th 1 round quals. Triple A's ,4 invite rounds

Tires have not yet been decided since it will be a new surface, Testing will go on once the track is complete and we will give everyone the info as soon as it has been decided.

Obviously everyone will have many question, we will be working very hard this weekend to get everything prepared and posted as soon as we can. We will be posting all the information online at www.reedyrace.com once it is all set.

I could not go any further with this announcement without thanking a few people for all their hard work. First off to Fred Medel for his years of dedication and incredible work making the Reedy Race the event that it has become today as well as everyone at Tamiya for all of their support through the years. To Sean and Rick from AE and Reedy for working so hard this off season trying to find a new home for the Reed Race. and to Billy and Tracy from Speedworld for helping make sure the legacy of the Reedy Race continues.

We will keep you updated as soon as we can. and we look forward to seeing everyone again for the 2008 Reedy Race of Champions.

Thanks
Scotty

Default It's on!

Awesome! Speedworld hosted the Asphalt Nationals a couple of years ago and did an outstanding job. I can't wait. Some of the greatest battles plus an excellent turnout.

Don't you mean you'll have to climb out of the pit in Derek's basement?

Exclamation Spec motors and LIPO?

I assume that their going to use the new Reedy 19t as the spec motor class, and there should be no reason not to use lipo, as long as you meet minimum weight!
Probably the open Class will allow Brushless and Lipo.
Just my 2$

Me neither...And same condition now applies to a lot of the racers. So, maybe they will hear us early and provide a legit class...
