Looking forward to the next two rounds in Southern Illinois this weekend. Weatherman is saying there should be no problems with snow or ice so we're hoping for a good turnout.

If you are looking for lodging, just google Carbondale IL lodging and let the ratings be your guide. All motels are no more than 10 minutes from the race track with the normal eateries close by.

Bring tables/chairs/extension cords. We have plenty of room for trackside pitting and the building is pretty well lit.

The racetrack is located at 900 W. Sycamore in Carbondale at the corner of Oakland and Sycamore. It is an old national guard armory with racers entry/unloading on the west side of the armory and parking on the north side.

Track/pit setup will be done Friday evening with no practice until Saturday morning.

Friday 5-9pm track/pit setup NO PRACTICE

Saturday and Sunday will be two separate events. Doors open at about 8am each day.

Both days will be open practice until around 11-11:30. Current plan is F-1 qualifying between 12-12:30 with support class qualifying starting at 1:00.

F-1 mains will more than likely occur between qualifying rounds 1/2,2/3, with the final following the supporting class mains.

This follows our normal club schedule other than the addition of the UF1 program.

Sunday's schedule may start a little earlier to get everyone out at a reasonable hour.

Any questions, post here.

I'm really sorry about missing this race but an infected dying molar had to be seen to. It was extracted today and a bone graft placed in the socket in preparation for an implant.

I'm a bit bummed because my F1 is working well, my bilateral carpal tunnel release surgery is allowing me to handle a 15 minute main without my hands going numb and that I attended SIU in the sixties.

See you Feb 15th in Urbana.

The Eclipse team will be in Urbana too. Drive and bad weather plagued our plans and even our club race plans. I guess this is what we by being spoiled with recent winters. This is normal its last ten or more years that were not.

Also if anyone needs there carpet on Road racing fix we have been doing it every Sunday at Eclipse Hobbies and Raceway(shameless Plug) www.eclipsehobbies,com or look for our threads in the Illinois Wisconsin area

Ive got 2 F1 cars hot and ready. Got a USGT and a Lemans car ready too. Now I just a few decals from Brad

Yes the race is on the 22nd& 23rd
I think RobK got this and the Hurricane weekend mixed up.
I was getting ready to make a post about this myself, but Rob beat me to it.
Due to a number of circumstances we elected to move the Urbana race to Ft Wayne. I want to thank the racers in Urbana for their support of the series, this was not an easy decision. I would also like to thank Summit Raceway for accommodating us on such short notice, I am confident that we will have a great showing in Ft Wayne. Working on the points updates now, should be up shortly

Depending on how the week goes I should have a spare car or two for someone to run as well, would just need to bring your own radio and receiver.
As long as I am on here, I would like to take the opportunity to announce that http://uf1midwest.com is now live and has most of the critical info on it. I am still figuring out Wordpress, but the site is operational and I will be tweaking it as I learn more about the software.

If any of you guys are interested and can make it, there will be an electric F1 class to be included at the Fireball Classic race in Lincoln, NE Memorial Day weekend. Trying to get more F1 guys to come out and run (the track seems to be the perfect size for the cars). I will be there and I believe that at least 5 others racers are talking about bringing theirs cars to race (as an additional class like myself). Think about it.
