I went by the track Saturday for our annual holiday barbecue at Homestead RC Raceway. A big thanks to Johnny and Lauren for making this happen. It was also a great practice day, Danny, Lazaro and Sean were setting the track on fire with their 1/8’s. They look like they are ready for the Toys for Tots next week.

While there, a lot of people asked to be added to the list for next Sunday’s Toys for Tots race. Please remember to bring an unwrapped childrens toy for the less fortunate kids.

It looks like we may have several racers with trailers showing up. If you are towing a trailer we will have a designated area for parking trailers so you can be reasonably close to the track. Please let me know ahead of time so we can reserve a space for you. Just make a post in this thread with your name and the length of your trailer. Thanks!

Sorted roll call as of morning 12/14/08. Go ahead and add your names if you are a racer, pit crew, official or announcer.

OK, we have daylight till about 5:30 so you will be able to get some hot laps in on Saturday.

Below is how to take a fast lap @ Homestead RC Raceway. This was taken from www.homesteadrcraceway.com Photo Gallery. You will have several hours on your flight to memorize and burn this into your memory, as you pass time on the airplane.

A lap around Homestead RC Raceway begins as you pull out of the pits and enter wide onto the large RH Sweeper. The Sweeper ends with a 90 degree RH turn into a full power LH turn onto the Short Chute. Then it is hard on the brakes as you negotiate the LH Switchback. A short burst of speed and hard on the brakes again as you creep around the tight RH Hairpin that leads you into the High Speed Esses. Righthand steering is needed as you go full throttle, then steer left, while still at full throttle, your pulse will race as you are only milimeters away from the retaining wall. Then it is hard on the brakes as you exit the esses and setup for the sharp RH hairpin that leads onto the straightaway. Then you jump on the throttle and burn rubber as you rocket down the Straightaway until you reach the RH High Speed Sweeper to complete your lap. Experience Excitement in the Fast Lane at Homestead RC Raceway!
