The Ferrari was the first kit. They called it the F2001. After that they were F201' except for the FW Williams. There were several different kits at one time. Except for the full option which they also dropped, the ferrari and Williams are all they have now I think.

By the way Chris...How long is your winning streak now? When is the last time you went to a race and didn't win the A Main in Touring Car? Just stay out of the F1 class OK?

I need to mention a major sponsor here for the Challenge. Alpha Management in Carbondale Il. is putting up the awards for the Challenge race in what was just the GP2 class but now is covering the whole event. Check them out on the battlefieldraceway.com site and tell them thank you. If you are racing out of town check them for a place to stay. Andy Wallace is the owner and is also an F1 fanatic. Way to go Andy! And Chad, what's this stuff about going to Easly to race F1 with the club there? I miss everything dang it!

I was looking at there site and I was thinking how would the f1's do on there track. So I posted on there forums to see who had f1's or to see who were interrested in getting some. I actually had some replies to it. And there would liek to see some racing there. So I might take my car and see if anyone else will join me to go there and race one day and see if we can get a crowd out there with them.

I checked it out also and posted. Then I got a message to email the guy in charge for info on how we race the F1's. Looks like Easly just may get on the tour next year. Get's my vote!

I have a better streak going in off road than touring. In off road its been since Spring in Savannah GA at The ROAR state Championship.
In touring I got 7th in Huntsville AL when the servo saver broke and the bad thing was I was battling for the lead when it happened.
I have been lucky this summer!!!! Like I always say (I had rather be lucky than good!!)

What's the date for the F1 Challenge Race?

What date do you guys have scheduled for the Bowl race? Has anyone talked to the AROCC club to set up a date?

I know the AROCC Fall Series races will be:
- October 29th.
- November 12th.
- November 26th.

Winter is a comin' guys. Let's get as much racing in before it's too cold.

Has a date been set for the F1 Challenge race yet? I haven't seen anything about when this race will be. Looks like it's going to be a winter race. Will we need snow chains?

The bowl race will be on the 12th I think. Most of the gang is in Nashville today and I will get with them this evening to set the date. The Challeng will probably be 2-3 weeks after that. I don't think weather will be a big problem. Remember last year it was 60+ until halfway into December. We have to make sure we don't collide with other events but so far everything is a go.
