Yeah Fred probably right, but was only trying to make sure, plus we may be still setting the track layout up that weekend.

we'll see if we can be done, we would be happy to run one last practice before the event.....

Yes but it would have to be a different layout the weekend before on tracks that are capable of being changed (non permanent).

Of course, or even better and easier on the TZ crew, the layout for the race could be installed and we could run it counter-clockwise on the weekend prior and then run it clockwise for the event. This would satisfy the rule of the track layout not being ran on prior to. It's what was done for the Asphalt nats as well.

Guys at NorCal know how. The owners, Kevin and Eric, have so much experience in r/c...

Have known Mark at TZ via the IIC. Mark is totally on the ball too...

See ya in March.

Thanks EA... Must have got 3 or 4 phone calls over the weekend asking about sign ups so that has to be a good sign. Eric and the rest of theROAR team should be all over it, and we get rolling ASAP.

Have started doing some stuff around the track, and will be going full steam ahead till March.

going to be a good one.

by expansion, are you referring to adding addt'l pits, or making more room for another fridge for my return?
