Well,Today we worked on the track and it is almost ready. We need to build a rail on the back of the drivers stand and racing can happen at FTS....

We will need some help Wed. to clean up some of the crap on the property..

Bring generators to the track because we will not have the big generator that we had at the Pre worlds.. There is very little gas stations working so try to get some gas before you come out to the Full throttle track. Ice is also a hard to find item right around the track.

Track looks good.

Rafy.... we were hearing that the Golf Course might not let us use the area this weekend due to clean they have to do. What is the final word?

Buttah.... SAFETY DANCE FOR LIFE!! What was really funny, was on the way home i found a station doing an 80's request and a chick called in and requested that. That was too ironic.

In behalf of all the Northeast Racers, our hearts go out to all of you who lost so much. I personally will fly on Thurs. morning thru Ft. lauderdale on vacation and driving to the race track on Friday for support and help in any way I can.

Looking forward to meeting new people and hoping that alot of Drivers don't bail on you guys now with all the hard work your doing to get ready for this weekend.

.............. Until then,Take care and good luck!

Default Race is still on

Hey guys the race is still on and track will be open on friday. Also Michelle will be there and will be doing concession as like always please do not bring grills to the track will will take care of all that for you. Some of the proceeds from the race will go toward the golf course in getting it back up and running. I would like to thank all who helped me out. Ken Cambell, Pete pepe, Tim Murphy and his crew of young school kids to help out. But a big thanks goes out to Raffael Angulo for being there from the beginning. I owe you all alot. But we still are not done so after the race this weekend will begin the rebuilding process. Thanks PW and Adrain for you surpport with the team drivers.

See you all this weekend

Thank you all
Jorge

They got hit by a hurricane and tornado spawned by the hurricane on friday and the following friday they are hosting a race attended by the top racers in the world. This is the kind of dedication to the racers that really shows FTS deserved to be the host of the IFMAR Worlds.

Hats off to Jorge and the volunteers that helped him make this happen.

Myrberg,

This is Jarrod, I took that fantastic shot of your car flying through the air that made it's way into RC Driver Magazine.

Will you be flying in for the race?
