Default Fabulous.

I had a great time...
everyone was awesome....a lot of work was done in prepping the grounds ...thank you.

I did more wrenching in one weekend than 5 yrs combined....
Learned a lot...

All the Mains were killer... nail biting actions in all.

The Invite class Action was super awesome...
makes me want to install a mod motor in my car.

This goes back on my calendar for 2013..

WOW
I thought after Hayato had 4 wins in a row, he had it on lock down

Serious comp at the sharp end of the field for him to only come out 4th OA !

There's probably a lot of examples of why Viktor was deserving of this win, but here's one that really stuck with me watching online.

Also, I'd love to put tech info on rcprogear.com. If you guys at Norcal have the sponsor sheets and want to send me photos or scans of them ([email protected]), I'll get the info online right away. Thanks!

think Brian went home Sat morning not feeling well. saw him come to the track friday morning but don't even think he hung out the whole day. Had a great time and thanks to the WHOLE NorcaL crew for a great event, and also EJ, OD and the rest of the TOP Team for the help and support and getting me a new EX on Thursday night it was an awesome new ride.

And a HUGE thanks to Steve Ashby and Larry from Team Powers for the motors, think the result showed that Team Powers and Top were a force to be reconned with wow what a rocket.

the event is on the list for next year for sure....

Thanks to Nor Cal Hobbies - Eric, Kevin and Crew for a exceptional event.

The race call from Jesse and Charlie was spot on - you guys made it a show!

It was great to see the progress that the TOP EX guys made with their cars. The VBC Team was pretty stealthy in getting a great result. Pretty promising for these two new cars.

Tech rarely gets any love or praise - James and team did some work!

We need more big outdoor races like this. With the popularity of IIC & Snowbirds - touring car needs a couple more crowning events for the outdoor asphalt racing season.

Well done.

He was invite but he is actually practicing at the WC track with Andy Moore and Shin Adachi....according from his FB status. I think he want to concentrate on his 2nd WC title more.

Anyway, well done Viktor and way overdue for a big win.........now, bring it to the WC.
