Huge Thanks to Jeremy Cupps, Roger Bourland and the entire Gulfcoast Raceway crew for hosting the 2012 RC Pro Onroad Nationals. Thanks to all the racers that came to the race! Without all of you this would not have been possible. Looking forward to the next one.

I would like to give thanks to RC PRO, Mike's hobby shop, Jeremy for putting together this great racing event for everyone to have fun. It was a great pleasure to meet some of the world class drivers at this event as well. Finally I would like to thank all the GT drivers that showed up to support this growing class that we all love.

Well, I am back home in Colorado - (Thanks Roger, your recomendation is faster than the GPS) a little tired, but I had a great weekend of racing.

I was very impressed with the facilities, racers and race program. Good weather helped as well, as we drove by some of the results of the nasty weather Saturday. It was fun to meet up with Gus and Andy, but added new friends in Leon (and son's), Shawn, Chad, D and Pit Racer. If you missed dinner friday night, your loss, as I have not laughed that hard or long in years.

After running the open GT rules, you guys may be onto something. It would be usefull to post the cars, engines, tires and bodies used in the A-main. It would give good data to all the GT racers and organizations putting on these events. I believe that the performance is not as much controlled by the engine as it is good traction and DRIVING.

I'm not sure I will make it back down again this year, but if you have the race again next year, count me in.

Gus - We'll be at the La Quinta, Kingwood ........

Mark

I also have to give a big thank you to Paolo Morganti and Rino lino for all the help with pitting me all weekend and helping me learn even more about chassis setup. It seems as soon as i think i may have it figured out i always learn more.
Even though i did not get to Finnish my race i felt i had a really good car to drive. You guys are awesome and thank you once again.

Big thanks to all that attended and Mike's Hobby for putting on a great event like this. Jeremy, Roger and all the help at the track did a fine job of making us all feel at home when we were a long way from it. Special thanks to Dee and Mark for pit duties ( sorry about the short pit , Mark) and all the GT class drivers that shared setups and info all weekend. That class is the best bunch of guys out there. Look forward to the next time. It was wonderful to see old freinds and meet new ones.
