What is the story with Chris not being with Corally any longer? I know he was one of the first top level racer to go with Corally and helped to put that sedan on the map. Chris has done a very good job with companies that are not always the biggest at the time....Yokomo and Corally. I wish him luck in his next ride.

Mike and Chris are both well respected racers. I am sure they will be back in business very soon if not already. Good luck to both of them. Times are tough these days.

Yeah. Anybody that gets payed to play with toy cars all day, MUST be a loser. I'd retire today and be another "loser" if I had that kind of talent.

First i want to thank everyone for the kind words.. Very appreciated.. I enjoyed talking with all of you at one time or another.

Corally has decided to go in a different direction. I was very pleased to have raced for them over the last year and a half. But with the way the euro vs the dollar is it makes things very tough here in the US. My best to Rob and i wish Corally nothing but the best in the future.

I am not sure what is in the cards next . I have been talking with a few company's and i am sure you will hear what happens next before i do . But it should be fun..

Thanks.

Mike Blackstock

Just a little unsure about what's happening. Mike mentions Corally deciding to go in a different direction. Do you mean CorallyUSA is making cuts to their team or that Corally themselves are cutting ties with their US distributor?
