The Lola T530 is a 1/8th scale body. He needs a 1/10th scale lola type body. I think Parma makes one. Not sure if Protoform does.

Full hook ups are available for motorhomes within a hundred feet of the track and as for workbench trailers, the track management will likely designate locations for best traffic flow. Suggest you call Jeff Parker at the shop to discuss this (281-577-8250).

Here is a map of the track facilities courtesy of Gulfcoast Raceway.

There are 6 motor-home hookups with power and water.

Yes, Protoform and Frewer make 200mm lola bodies. I have three Protoform and four Frewer bodies in my collection (painted and unpainted). Just go to the Proline/Protoform website for the Protoform version (it is current on their site under touring car bodies).

Good news, the tire wear is close to reasonable again. 40 fronts and 42 rears work decently, some people were even trying 37's.

I've heard rumors of at least Ron Atomic and Ralph Burch showing up for the club series race on sunday which usually attracts around 15 locals and the track will most likely be open the saturday before for practice as well so show up early.
