Tomorrow, track will be open for practice from 12pm ~ 8pm.

Expecting big practice crowds, we will have a control practice if it's needed.

See you guys tomorrow

I think Sean can come up with a time schedule / group order. However, I don't think he can be responsible for how "controlled" the drivers are.

Default TQ event

Tamiya's TCS races are always so much fun,
Sean's TQ Raceway is a great place to race,
It's a hard combination to beat.
Great job Sean and the TCS gang for an awesome day of racing, i really had a great time.

Thanks,
Jeff Smith

Fred (Tamiya) and Sean (TQ), awesome combo, thanks so much for a fantastic day. All went well and Johnny 55 on the mike/director action, killer as usual! (thanks for the support )
Running foams in F1 and 1/12 was an absolute blast!

Thumbs up

That was a really cool TCS
When you combine Sean Park tempo racing, the announcing stylings of one, Johnny55, and Tamiya putting on the giveaway party, you get the Bonanza that is TCS @ TQ

Those whom did not attend, missed out

Great racing with you all, and CUDA Dude bringing it by putting the pressure on in the F1 A-Main

Thanks for the vid Leester

Here's my rides from the race

Sean (TQ Raceway), Tamiya (Fred, Gary and Eric) and Johnny 55 (awesome announcer in the house) along with a large entry field all combined for one awesome day of racing. Thank you to all ! The program ran smooth as silk and some great battles in lots of classes. After others hear how fun this event was, more will be looking to show up for next years event !
