Thanks.
I believe they were testing last weekend but I didn't hear how that went. Refresh my memory, what was last years?

It would Kevin! I did think about a JPS Lotus truck in black & gold. But in the end it had to be a Cola Cola truck

My biggest fear in Amateur touring was being slower than someone in Spec GT.

Coca-Cola ? Mark, you are slipping. But at least Bob Akin would appreciate. Look forward to running F1 again with you this year. Safe travels !

Yeah, and that would have likely been the case with the new Spec R's

Hey...I rocked a Spec-R in the Amateur class, last year. I'm guessing it was the only one there.

HI guys,

Well things are looking great for another fun time at the IIC. Entries went crazy last night and we are over 300. World Champion Ronald Volker will be joining us also.

For the Spec GT. I hope to have the gear ratio posted tonight. We are doing some more testing tonight and will try and get as close as possible. Just like always, we may need to adjust it once we get on the actual IIC track.

If anyone would like to add a class, please email me at [email protected] as it is easier to do it now than latter.

Looking forward to seeing everyone next week. It is going to be great.
See you soon,
Scotty

Does that mean that the track layout can be more technical this year???

Scotty talked to a few of us and it was decided since last year Pro 10 was crazy fast with 13.5 2S, to slow it down to grow the class.

That was a Gen3 RPM, not the new Spec R

So you are telling me there is a Chance. A Chance for what.... Thanks to our Title Sponsor A Main Hobbies, it will be Willy Wonka time at the IIC to see who is going to get the Golden Ticket. Each racer when they pick up their goodie bag at registration will have a chance, a chance to get the 1 Golden Ticket from from A Main Hobbies which will win them a Brand New Yokomo BD8 Kit signed by Regining World Champion Ronald Volker. It is another great benefit racers get for being part of the International Indoor Championships!

Scotty
