Hey Chris,

Not as large as the Nationals. Still a good size track. Hope you and Garen can make it - a large group is coming from Revelations. Brian Bodine and friends will be down from Washington. We are looking forward to some good, laid-back, kick A racing - Northern California style.

Rich,

I'm trying to get everything organized to come up. I'll do my best to make it. Will there be a decent amount of practice time on Saturday?

Chris,

We need to get three rounds of qualifying in (Saturday) - Practice/Sign-in will start Friday at 11:00 AM and run 'til 6:00 PM - RAMS members will need to be at the track around 8:00 (or earlier) for set-up. Saturday morning the track will open at 7:00 for open practice/sign-in 'til 10ish. Sign-in's will close at 9:00 AM Saturday - if you will be later than 9:00 I suggest calling in your entry - we'll enter you in the program. I'm only guessing, but, we'll probably start qualifying betwwen 10:30 and 11:00. RC Pro uses 10 minute qualiers - makes qualifying take a little longer. The primary goal is to be done with Q's by 5:00 - we'll work backwards from there to insure plenty of "track" time for all. Feel free to give me a call. 650-280-6095. Or, talk to Dremel Boy @ Ace

Hey Brian,

Freelance just posted the entry form. There is a large number of 1/10 and Sedan racers in the SF Bay Area. All are welcome to enjoy the fun.

Brian,

I appreciate the offer. I will keep this in mind. I was going to ship all my stuff but having someone take it up would be awesome.

Brian,

I hope you packed the "heavy-weight" bodies - sounds like you'll be taking a pounding. Watch out for the RAMS "Monster of the Mid-Way", Matt Riddick, he's gettin' faster and he'll swap plastic with ya - RAMS style!


see ya in the AM

Race results at the RAMS web site. Best race was the E main 1/8th - it was an amazing display of racing. One of the fastest and most interesting races ever.

Talking Great Race! Thanks RC Pro and RAMS!

Hello everyone,

I wanted to chime in really quick to say thanks for making my first out-of-town race really fun. I'm a newbie 1/8th scaler that started few months ago at Revelations Raceway so the bigger track was fun and challenging.

So here is my special thanks list to this very prepared group:

Dana S. (Revelations Raceway) helped with tires, advice and pit work! Thanks!

Rick and Dave S. helped me with all kinds of stuff and made the trip tons of fun!

John and Ruben told me to "stop pulling over for people!", "screw e'm!" and Ruben for the great qualifying pit work.

Werner for the words of encouragement!

RAMS for the super cool layout and event coordination!

RC Pro Series staff for great organization and fun event.

Quote for this race: "Getter Done!"

My bitch for this race: Due to hard T-bone in the first corner of the first lap, (light orange car sent me upside down! ) I went from 2nd to 9th in my main. I pushed back up to 3rd then ran out of gas pushing to hard. Still fun though!
So back to Revelations with a mean sunglass tan line and

Thanks Guys!

James


Other stats:
I measured the race line of the track on Saturday with a wheel tape and got 927 ft.
The straightaway race line measured 230ft.
Inside corner to inside corner of the straight measured 211ft.
