LOL That was Juans truck and his tent landed on it. It was about 30 feet away in front of his trailer. No damage though just a few scratches on the roof

Can somebody please tell us who's been doing what in the racing, or at least guide us to some site where we can find the information.

RC racers are an intrepid breed, racing in these sort of conditions. Well done boys. That's what I call keen !

But I really think you're going to have to start thinking about racing in the rain too, if you want to do any racing at all.

We only ran 2 rounds of qualifying instead of 3 because of the weather. In touring mod
the top 3 qualifiers were Masami, Surikarn, Paul wynn. I don't remember the rest off the top of my head. We only made it through the stock and novice mains before the rains came again. I think the results will be posted on fseara.org sometime soon.

The results should be up tonight. The weather really threw everything off. On Saturday, some areas around the track received 8 inches of rain, in a couple of hours. I know Jarrod has a fair amount more photos to post too. The racing was good, inbetween the rain delays. On top of the rain, it was very hot and humid.

Most notable were a few locals that made the A in mod. Of course Paul Wynn is always fast, but slotting into 3rd, is very good. New NORRCA National champ Furman Walker also qualified his (Mi2) in the A as well as Mike Dobbs ( Xray ).

Thanks goes out to Jorge and his crew for putting o nthis race, even though Hurrican Charlie had ravaged the area jsut a week before.

The local town of Kissimmee was hit pretty hard. When driving to the track, it was evident that the storm was powerfull, as all the power poles,at least a hundred of them, were snapped in half like twigs. I do not think many signs for the local businesses survived the wind either, most of them were blown out. From the drivers stand, you could see a hangar halve way collapsed.


More to come, we would have more day to day reporting, but the weather really put a stop to that.

We really only got two rounds in, so some of the positions are not really indicative on overall performance.
