Default SLCF1 Champions Crowned!

We've concluded our 6th season of F1 racing in Salt Lake City.

Our inaugural Champion in 2000 Jim Fred McCrea has won the title with only a 5 point cushion! The Toyota driver also secured the Constructors Championship with the "Professor" Paul Hatfield. JFM does the double for Toyota just like Fernando with an astounding 10 win season.

Special thanks to MLP Motorsports for providing our winner's chassis And also to West Valley Hobbies for being our other sponsor.

45 minute races with battery changes are a blast. Talk to your race director about running while everyone is taking the break for the mains. It will change the way you see r/c racing forever.

What's the r/c racing scene like in Maryland?

If it is any inspiration to you I started this series with 3 other racers just doing what we liked. A parking lot, a couple hundred feet of garden hose, and someone willing to score the laps...

I'll share anything if it would help you start your own series.

We tried to get a F1 series going at a local track but one by one people dropped out of it... Just not enough people want to race them each week...

That's why we only race every other week from March to early October. Keeps burn-out away. I find that everyone at the beginning of the season wants to meet and race every week. Slowly the motivation dies off and you are left with only the diehards.

We started our own races so we weren't tied to a race director or having to put on a show for other classes waiting for their turn. That meant having to self-marshal. This isn't a popular idea at first but it was the only way we could have a race. Now we see it as the right penalty for crashing. In real racing if you crash that bad you are out. Having to marshal your own car changes everything. No more," I got a bad marshal, so it cost me the race" cry baby stories. It places the empasis back on the driver to race as clean as possible. But that is just one thing we had to change in order to hold our own races.

The marshalling your own car is a very good idea, I have heard of it done other places and guys that raced there said it totaly changed the driving perspective.

People drove slower and took there time to make passes just like they should instead of taking the other driver out.

My personal opion is that this a something we should try at my locals tracks but they wont take it on.

There seem to be a very public few who dissagree and they always seem to be the ones involed in regular incidences.

Anyone done any 19T testing. It was crazy how hot my stock motors got last year. I have to dust my F201 off and start my homework. If anyone has experence with 19T, throw me a bone.

I wish there were enough F1 fans around to run weekly. I only run mine in the TCS, so I cant use the 3racing stuff. I wish, because I love their chassis.
