pitspots this year will be first come first serve on the first race, then that space can be rented for the whole year for $10 a spot. so be sure to get there early on the first race to get the spot you want. you will not be able to reserve a spot before the first race.

also, Mikes did not update there Mylaps loop like we thought we would, so all you MRT guys can still use your transponders. all transponders that worked last year will still work this year. only the folks with the new 3 wire Mylaps transponders may be effected.

last year was the best year yet with a average of 130 entries per race, this year promises to be better. we will now have RCscoring pro as the software so we will have a great year. dont miss out!!!!

Ok guys, I need to know if you are planning on running electric eight scale this coming winter. There is some that have said they want to run it. Let me know or it will be dropped.

I would much rather have SCB on the schedule than 1/8E. The track is too small and SCB is so much fun. Mark my words - if SCB is on the schedule, my son's SC10 will be an SCB before the season starts.
