Sorry guys..... I left the best part out.....it will be only $20 for the weekend, $15 bucks for an extra class. Can't beat that price for a full weekend of racing!

Entry forms will not be handed out. Sign ups can be done on Saturday morning at the track. ROAR memberships are required.

There you go Eli, discount prices for great racing at Toledo. Can't beat that! I may run all 3 classes since it's so inexpensive.

Thumbs up

I've posted this information on the Ontario 1/8 On Road Racing Club's site as well as LondonRc.

We'll try to get a Club Road Trip planned. See you there.

It will be nice to have the Canadian crew down for a visit and some Monkey Screaming.

If someone would like longer B and C Mains we can discuss that before we start the Mains on Sunday. I would kind of like to have 28 minute B and C mains. Having Roger E. do this math problems will be entertaining all by its self.

Brian and I will work with Steve to see if we can have the Pro Series entry form changed and available at the Byron Race. I also plan to bring some GLC entry forms to ILL.

I would vote for all mains time to be the same (28 minutes LOL) subject to entries.
