Default Fast Lap Time

Some have asked what a good lap at Homestead RC Raceway is. Of course you need to be consistent and a one lap wonder in happy hour does not go very far during a race. Here are the drivers one fastest lap turned during the one hour Grand Final.

Paolo Morganti 19.871
Joaquin Desoto Jr 20.272
Scotty Gray 20.273
Maxy Velazco 20.335
Chris Jones 20.720

If you are close to these times you should do very well at this years Pan American Int'l 1/8 GT Grand Prix!

What's the weather like in your home city.

Only 2 more weeks until we have "Excitement in the Fastlane" at the Pan American Int'l 1/8 GT Grand Prix!

28 this morning and last night!

LOL We got you all beat! Here the weather was 85 degrees with a low cold of 77degrees. But South Florida is very nice specially to race with the awesome crew there. Some of my boys from Puerto Rico are heading there for the race. Last year I said I would go this year but I didn't account for my wedding so maybe next year I will celebrate my 1st anniversary at the track (I have to be real good all year long). I hope all the best for all those racers that can make the trip and a safe trip home after the race.

WOW! There is some extreme cold weather going on. Just think, in just over a week you will be in warm and sunny Miami! I hope that thought will get you through the ice age.

We will be having a FORGASS Series Race this coming weekend at Homestead RC Raceway. These races result in a lot of rubber being put down on the race track. This should result in lots of traction for the upcoming Pan American International 1/8 GT Grand Prix and possibly record breaking lap times!
