Default 2010 Great Lakes Challenge - Toledo, Ohio

Dates have been set for this years Great Lakes Challenge (known as the GLC). Due to the World Championships being held in Houston in late July, the One Eighth Racers of Toledo have decided to move from the traditional first weekend in August, to the week before Labor Day. This will make it more convenient to attend both events (if you choose).

2010 Great Lakes Challenge date: August 26-29, 2010.

More info on entry forms, hotel info, travel tips will follow as the event gets closer. Entry forms typically come out around the 1st week of May.

Thanks for the information Brian! Now only if it would warm up a few degrees (like 65, yes it's 15F right now).

Hey Brian. I am sending in my entry now. Will we have a periodically updated entry list here as usual?

Looking forward to the race!!!

Also, is there another thread in the nitro forum, or should there be the usual 'sticky' placed there?

Clay

Default Track work at Toledo

Brian and Ted were busy preparing the track this last Saturday and installing the sun shade on the drivers stand, and several or more of the club members were there last Friday. Saturday was an open day at the track and Paul Ciccarello, Ted, and myself were breaking in engines, etc. and having a great time.

The weather was sunny with a slight breeze that made it very enjoyable under the race sheds. The track is in great shape and the traction was not too bad considering there were only a few cars running on it Saturday compared to a club or race event.

My tire combination was 35's all around to begin , and during the course of the day I switched to 37's all around and the car ran great getting both forward and lateral bite.

Looks like another great track to run on for 2010.

Remember, to find your entry forms head to http://www.racersoftoledo.com/entries.html.

Yes, Dorian thanks for the sponsorship help.

Sky Rocket has now also stepped on board as a GLC sponsor this year.
