Default Where to race on-road August 12????

It looks like there will be up to 3 different on-road race events scheduled for one day: August 12. Cooper's track in Tracy City, TN, Prime Time Hobbies' in Calhoun, GA, and the Sugar Bowl in ATL, GA. So where will everyone be; and more importantly, how would one decide which to attend?


I've really enjoyed racing at PT's track; covered pits is a huge plus. I really like the track lay-out (I can actually turn pretty quick laps!) and an on-site hobby store is awesome!

The other two tracks I've never run. I have been to the Sugar Bowl and it's a sweet track! Wide lanes, long straights, it's definitly a very fast track. But for me, speed = more possible broke parts! No on-site hobby store could be an issue.

Then there's Cooper's track. The layout is very similar to a carpet layout we ran in Trenton. I really liked that layout; I think I was about as fast as I could be on the blue in Trenton; why not the same on the black in Tracy City?




Of course, I could always stay home and chase my dog with my Wheely King!

Cool. I hope my car can live up to the nickname Joe gave it. The silver bullet. Maybe she can make up for a bad driver.

Looks like Prime Time is the place to be! My brain just reminded me I have something I have to do at 8 Sunday night, so that means I'll have to be gone by 7pm. Will touring stock be done by then?

Cool! Then I'm in for stock touring class. Anybody know if PT carries any rubber tires; preferrably mounted? I'd like to try a few different compounds but can't make it down Saturday to practice.

Oh and what about transponders? What kind of lap system will be used? Do I need one of those fancy AMB personal transponders?

No, PT has transponders. Many of us use personals though.

PT does not carry pre-mounts, however, Nexus Racing does. I'm sure you can get a hold of Arun and he can bring you a set if he is coming to the race on Sunday.
