Hello everyone,

Well another successful and exciting IIC is in the record books. There are so many stories to talk about, so many new faces attended and so many great races happened making this in my opinion, the best IIC of the 5 years.

I must thank all the sponsors that made it possible for us to bring the the IIC. I also want to thank all my crew for without them, it also would not be the great event it is.

It is very humbling to read all the great comments on how everyone enjoyed the race. We all work very hard long before, during and even after the event to ensure that everyone has the absolute best time possible at an event.

There are many big races around the world and you guys have the choice as to which races you attend. I personally want to thank you all for your support throughout the years and I hope that you feel after attending the IIC, you feel this is the best event in the world.

We will be back next year for the 6th running of the IIC. No doubt things in our industry will change and we will have more decisions to make, but you can be confident we will do our best to keep the racer in mind and ensure that HAVING FUN IS NUMBER 1.

Thanks again to all of you for you kind words and support.

See you in 2010.
Wishing you all the best
Scotty and the IIC Team.

Post Carpet Racers - Life in the Small Lane: Press Release

Congrats to everyone who participated in the IIC this year!
If anyone is in the NYC area, get 1st crack viewing rights to the film that was shot at the IIC last year. This press release was just put out last night... for the full release:
http://www.carpetracers.com/press_co...ldPremiere.pdf


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

September 22, 2009



CARPET RACERS: A CRASH COURSE

World Premiere at the 2009 Queens International Film Festival



Director Jay Thames and Executive Producer Michael Rooney to be in attendance as the film unspools at the Frank Sinatra Center, November 13th -- 8 PM EST


Carpet Racers: A Crash Course a feature length documentary that delves into the subculture of professional, competitive radio control race car drivers will World Premiere on November 13, 2009 at 8 PM, at the Frank Sinatra Center, 35-12 35th Street, Astoria, NY 11106.



Filmmakers Jay Thames and Michael Rooney have spent over three years interviewing, filming and editing the little known, yet rabid world of radio control, where grown men and women who make their living, or try to, race cars the size of shoeboxes around tracks the size of tennis courts all at 60 miles per hour. Over 170 hours of footage was shot at major radio control events like The Snowbird Nationals in Orlando, Florida and The International Indoor Championships in Las Vegas, Nevada and at local tracks around the United States from California, to Texas, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and New York.



The film is the directorial debut of Jay Thames (Automatic, Yesterday Was A Lie) and is executive produced by Michael Rooney (Automatic, Pittsburgh Steelers Film Productions) of Pittsburgh, PA. Jonathan Walls (Playing For Change) and Oliver Noble served as editors of the film, which took more than 16 months to edit into a feature film. More information about the film and the world of carpet racing can be found at the website: www.carpetracers.com



Celebrating the World Premiere of Carpet Racers: A Crash Course there will be an after-party around the corner at the Studio Square Beer Gardens with a live musical tribute to Levon Helm featuring national recording artists Jarrett Schaub and his band, Billy Ray Reynolds, Guy Forsyth and musical guests Connie Nelson and Waylon Payne. The event extends beyond the world premiere to celebrate the Thomas Elsasser Fund, benefiting the FDNY families of fallen NYC firefighters.



The Queens International Film Festival enters its 7th year as it provides a stage for national and international filmmakers and screenwriters. Celebrities from all over the world mingle with tens of thousands of movie buffs as they screen over 40 films annually. The Queens Film Festival brings a tremendous economic impact to the Queens area of New York City and at the same time the benefits of positive national and international press coverage. The Festival has established an enviable track record as a place where dreams do come true.
