I'm about a twenty minute drive away. Hope to make it, but it will be a struggle!

Seriously though, looking forward to meeting our RC brothers from across the Pacific. Those guys will probably show us some cool things.

What time is good for spectators to show up? Did not see the time on the flyer or the site and would like to drop in for a while.

Thanks

Saturday we'll start racing between 10:30 - 11:00 a.m.

We'll do 3 rounds and mains (all 5 minuter races)

Sunday I'm hoping to get things started a bit earlier and the format will be different, using LAPS instead of TIME...plus we'll have single car qualifying.

(Hopefully 9 - 9:30 on Sunday)
