Interesting Class! Some ?'s:

1. Is there much interest/#'s of entries for this class?

2. Is there a minimum weight spec?

3. What roll out is a good ballpark for 21.5 on 2S LiPo? (probably close to 21.5 F1 ?).

TIA

I realize people might be busy with all that's going on however, 5 days ago I inquired about this race and no response or noticeable interest.

So, will there be a race this Sunday or not? Kinda far to drive on just a "Maybe"......

Sorry I missed your post. I apologize. Our Facebook is where we primarily communicate and I missed this. Hopefully you come check us out on a normal club day sometime and can check us out. We did not run LeMans yesterday and it will be scratched from our schedule on the next F1 day. We have a WGT-RT class that we will be looking to try and refine for future racing opportunities. Please check us out on our FB page.

Default February 17th - 18th Race weekend. ** NO 2 DAY **

Announcement... We have an On Road schedule adjustment for the weekend of February 17th & 18th.

At NORA we still have Club race #9 in the points series and will run it as scheduled at normal time on February 17th and we will have 3 heats and a main that day instead of two. It will be a normal club points race.

There will however be no trophy race that weekend and we will not race on Sunday Feb 18th. (Reason for this is lack of volunteer help with our Indoor programs and a low car count at our F1 championship event).

We will however continue to remain focused on bringing you 3 more awesome club races on Feb 03, 17th and March 3rd. We will look at schedule flexibility next year and see if we can run a very well organized 2 day race weekend in 2019.

Sorry for the bummer news about Feb 18th... however this is the one that makes the most sense with some of the end of the year dynamics with our Indoor program.

I remain thankful for all of our racers who have supported our In-Door programs and thank you for helping us make our programs very very successful this year. If you have any questions about the indoor program please give me a shout.

Open oval practice and open booth time to show your rides. ( if you know you can help man the the booth and the track please contact John Vick)
Saturday doors open 9am to 6pm
Oval racing from noon to 4pm.
9am to noon oval practice.

Default TEAM LENCE IS COMING

We are bringing the whole band tomorrow, all 1/12 scale

We should be running 4 in the novice class and 2 or 3 in 17.5 1/12.

I'd also love to run 1/12 MOD, if you have any other takers, or are willing to let me run with the TC MOD cars.

See you all tomorrow.
