Most Sedan racers I know will run a 40 front and 42 rear. Starting somewhere around 56 to 59mm in Diameter. It is really up to your driving style. You should not need anything any less than a 40.

We have asked Mr. Cyrul, if he would like to set up shop and have parts available at the GLC race. This is the plan right now.


Thank you very much for your rersponse....

Be sure to help the host club by pre-registering for this MWS race. As I have said in prior postings "Pre-registering CAN pay"

Pre-registration is getting pretty close to what we had in Cincinnati. There could be a new MWS attendance record set this weekend.

Hi Mark, Just got the green light to go to Toledo.
A friend of mine, Nick Smrt, said I could get my ROAR membership at the track. Which, in turn, will allow me to register for the MWS Toledo race. Does that mean I can't pre-register? I doubt my check will make it to ROAR before I head out there.

Thanks for any info. Can't wait for this weekend.

Tom,

Yes, you can still pre-register. Simply put "will buy at track" in the ROAR boxes. That way the host club knows you will be purchasing a ROAR membership at the track. Forms will be available by the Toledo club I'm sure. If not, Mark may have some from ROAR to bring.

In fact, if you want, go to the ROAR website and print out a copy of their registration form. You can fill it out before you come down to the MWS race and simply hand it to the club when you pay the entry fee.

See you in a couple days in Toledo!

Here’s your last chance to pre-register for Toledo’s MWS race this weekend (June 3-4). If you haven’t pre-registered as of yet get, signed up by going to www.midwestseries.com web site. Pre-register by Thursday night to be eligible for a FREE entrance fee for a MWS race.

Will the FM transmitter be in use for race calling/anouncements?
