There's one vote! I know the cali gang has some numbers as well. It seems there has always been F1 in Texas but they are hard to find unless you hit a website. Who is the guy in lower michigan/ Indiana. He has been running a series for almost 20 years. My system crashed and I lost all the info. BlastF1 something. And he probably does not have my new email.

Default New car releases and the Coliseum

The big news is F1 today is not that Ferrari unveiled it's 2011 contender, no not at all! The big news is F1 racing at the Coliseum is going strong!

Two heats yesterday running on rubber. Yes, outside there's snow and ice but the F1 guys racing on rubber, not foam! Steve H's yellow F104 TQ'd and won the A main and Warren took the B main.

Last week there were also two heats, and silver cars were allowed to practice separately, thanks Casey. There were many different cars on the track: F104's, F103's, Exotec, and an F10. Also, both grooved and slick tires were in use and and one new driver, Patrick F, made his racing debut. This F1 minnow swam with the sharks and brought his equipment home intact, bravo for him.

Default What about a foam tires class?

I'm all for rubber, but what about F104's running on foam so we can run both classes at the upcoming TCS? I'd love to run two F1 classes at the TCS and stop trying to pretend I'm interested in running a sedan.

What do you guys think? Did any of the TCS races so far this year have both classes? Or is foam dead now that we are learning how to make the cars run fast on rubber?

Default Saturday Race

Ran at the "C" fro the first time. Nice to see that F1 is back. And every one was fast, even though some were faster than others . looking forward to next week.

I figured if I stepped off for a while good thing would happen. Damn...I was right! I'll see you guys very soon. Keep up the good work.

Default F1 National? & 2011 Teams on the catwalk

It wold be grand to have a national F1 1/10 final, put me in your contact list for Southern California.

Some Ferrari, Lotus and the Mexican driver/sponsor Sabuer shoots.
It's good to be back in F1, Pedro Rodriguez (MEX) drove last time for Ferrari and other teams back in 1968. Incredible that we still don't have a U.S. car!

I am glad to see that ugly long air intake gone (looked like a sailfish!)

Nice

Adelante Scuderia Sabuer Telmex




Lotus cool




Cheers!
Marcos
