People want to sit by him just to look at him. I mean he is willing to help also.

I was kinda wondering why people would just pull up a chair and sit down and not say anything....

This was my first indoor champs and loved it. The hotel was amazing the guys that worked tech were knowledgable and great with getting us through quickly. I would like to thank Ian Ruggles and everyone that helped out with this event it was great. If the schedule stays the same I will be back next year. The layout was great was hoping for a bit more traction but that helped me in becoming better at setup. They say the older you get the wiser you you get and I got Wised!!!! Love you Mike

Just wanted to take a minut here to thank all of you who made the race possible I think the 3 day format was very good, the track was nice and stayed super consistent all week, the new hotel was great. I Beleive some work could be done in the schedule just so people know what to expect before hand althought it is always hard when people register last minut but you guys did a good job and I am hoping to make my 8th year next year.

Nah, you just get more surly. Like Chuck!

Speaking of word to the wise... beware of standing next to Tortorice before a main. He "crop dusted" the area right before the main started. Maybe that's the key to winning? Make the other drivers' eyes water?

Andrew, Corey and I wanted to thank all who made this race possible - it was our third year in a row attending and look forward to next year.

We really liked the three day format - and will spread the word to try and get some more local racers to join us.

Thanks again,
Ian

There were some fantom laps. check out live rc results and look at all the laptimes and you will see.

Had a good time, the track was good. It would be nice to have the stand on the otherside, without all the noise, and people in your ear while trying to run. As Keven said 3 days is fine, just keep the racers informed alittle more.

Well, my somewhat "official" return to Indoor On-Road racing and I'm glad I chose to go to the Champs. Ian and crew did a great job. The venue change and the 3 day format were great changes and can't wait to do it again next year.

I also gotta thank the CRC crew all the fun in the pits.

Being away from On-Road for 2 years, this race definitely added some fuel to the fire to get back to where I was when I stopped.

It was great seeing old friends again and looking forward to some future events.

Thanks Ian and the crew...Blake and I had fun at our first Indoor Champs and look forward to the next. I think the driver stand on the other side is a great idea as well.

Thanks Ian and Joe and anyone else involved with this event. This was my 2nd Champs race and I can safely say it was my best. I really like pitting at the track since you could talk with other racers or just enjoy watching the races. Thanks again and I will be back next year.

Great fun, I'm definitely coming next year. But I'm flying instead of driving, 11hrs on the road left me a little cooked and not really ready for the event.

A good crowd, awesome racing and a great track. Thanks to the organizers and all the other racers. I think I can get more of the Ottawa crowd to make the trip next year.

Any word on the total number of drivers and entries? I'm writing up a report for the local club newsletter.
