Default January Speed month has started!

Well, it finally has arrived. January Speed Month @ Homestead RC Raceway officially began today with the track opening for the prestigious FORGASS Series Race #5. Today was an open practice day and the track was very good even in the 80+ degree heat.

A lot of the fastest racers attended today and even more will be arriving tomorrow. In 1/8 Open, Paolo Morganti showed everyone the fasy way around with a fast lap of 15.6 seconds. Scotty Gray topped the 1/10 Sedan list with a quick lap of 17.7 seconds. A lot of the GT racers were at 20.0 to 20.3 but Maxy Velasco broke that barrier with several 19.9 and 19.8 laps.

There will be one more practice session on Saturday morning with 3 rounds of qualifying beginning at 11:00am.

The track should have a ton of grip for the Pan Am Int'l 1/8 GT Grand Prix next week. After todays open practice the track has a dark black groove all around the track and has rubbered up very well. I think the GT cars will really hook up and have crazy traction they hardly ever see. This is going to be awesome!!!

I found out yesterday that another very fast racer will be attending the PA Int'l 1/8 GT Grand Prix. Florida racer Scotty Gray has signed on to race in this event. Scotty has won multiple FORGASS Championships in both the foam tire 1/10 Sedan and 1/8 Open classes. I'm sure he will be a contender in GT as well.
