I hope we get entries...

I wonder what the standard is to be on "the list" of races allowed to be posted on the main forum. Because I'm pretty sure we've outpaced a few of those races in entries both years we've run it.

Sorry, rant over, just a little salty.

Are the F1 tires listed the requirement or a suggestion? The reason that I ask is because the Pit tires aren't marked and you can't readily tell what compound you are looking at.

We haven't had an issue with people trying to cheat, but if it becomes an issue we would rectify it by marking approved tires or something to that effect. It's pretty easy to feel the difference in compounds.

There is only one hotel in Brunswick but look on Google maps at the intersections of I-71 ant SR-18 or I-71 and SR-82. These are exits just to the south and north of Brunswick and are reasonable driving distance to the track. The largest number of hotels are at I-71 and SR-18.

I have not been out to the track for awhile and just found out I don't have to work this weekend. I see RC-Signup has closed for this event. Can I bring $$$ and show up Sat and participate? f1, VTA and 17.5 TC?
