What about the owners meltdown before the first qualifier of the day. There was a tear in the carpet in the turn leading on to the straight. A turn marshal noticed a small flap sticking up and proceded to cut it before notifing the owner. George saw it happen and questoned the marshal (the marshal was at fault for doing so). George them proceded to express his displeasure to the marshal. If he left it at that it would have been fine, but he decided to stand in the middle of the track and anounce to the entire crowd that everything in the builing was his and not to [email protected]&!NG toutch any of it. During this explosion he used the "F"word 8 times! There were women and children present at the time. This is no way for a track owner to act. He also used inapropriate language during his drivers meeting lecture. As a racer this is not what I expect to hear or see at a national or any other event. I belive that his actions will have long term affects on his buisness and ROAR should address this situation imediatley and demand a public appalogy from George to all the racers and spectators who witnessed this uncalled for display of ignorance. Who else feels this way?

ROAR they are only volunteers and itís the weekend they have better things to do . I'm sure that the stress of the moment got to him but he should still have some form of decorum and decency.

I am sure he has an exemption from ROAR to use the F-bomb at will......it is probably an un-announced ruling though....

Hey guys, give Fernando credit- he has gotten the Tamiya going better on carpet mod than anyone else I'm aware of. Personally, I'm very impressed with what he has done. The Tamiyas have always been at a disadvantage on the rug because they are built for rubber tires. Ferggie has always has driving talent just hasn't had the car to go with it.

As for the cursing, as a race director myself, that's uncalled for. Everyone in our local club can vouch for me that I've had more than my fair share of problems but I wouldn't dream of acting like that. I hope he makes an apology. I'm very dissappointed to hear of soemthing like this. I put my heart and soul into promoting R/C - the last thing we need is to run off all of the young blood that will be the future of our sport.

Maybe Seaball can drop a few F-Bombs on the stand so the track owner will have some company.....
