I will be posting all the heat qualifiers and races tomorrow morning so every lap, every finish can be viewed. I will be posting this on the TamiyaUSA website as the files are too big to post here.

I will be going through all the images I took and I will be posting them on our TCS site tomorrow.

Thank you to Speed Tech RC for being the on-site hobby shop, Charlie Suangka for an excellent announcing job and to the TRF (Tamiya Racing Factory) members who helped the the Tamiya staff run a smooth and efficient TECH area. It's with this help and support that makes running the event possible.

Thanks again everyone. We appreciate your continued support and congrats to all the winners this year
limiting the tires to 3 sets for GT2 (and GT1) was a great idea.

Maybe implement Reedy Invite style racing next year for GT1 if there's less than 10 entries

Danny, I was in a very bad car accident on thw way home Sat afternoon. multiple cars banged me around literally and I have a few bruises but otherwise okay. A lot of my RC stuff also broke due to the multiple impact. My car is in a very bad shape. I was better off staying home and get better. I felt bad not able to continue since the TA06 had a chance to stay in top 10. But there are more important things in life. See you at the track and regards to OP!

No, wonder I didn't see you on Sunday Izzy.
Hopefully you fell better, so after GT2 race you have another race on the Fwy, just kidding man. I guess we are so tired after racing and most of us has to drove far from Tamiya track.
Get better Izzy, I will see you next time again at the track.

I always take my racing at the track only and not on the streets as should everyone else. I actually felt giddy going home and excited for the next day. I was basically pit maneuvered on the left rear and I spun across the freeway lanes from slow to fast colliding with other vehicles. Anyway, Thanks for caring. Props to Joel, Lee and Bensie for the win.

Yet again -the series and finals proved to be the best show in town. Fred & Crew continuously deliver a flawless event.

Charlie - whether on LIVERC or LIVE, your banter and race calling is memorable. Glad these guys convinced you to run it.

Troy, Dan, JC - rocked it in 1/12. We'll get the program on rails for next year.

Benzi - could not have happened to a nicer guy. The true OG racer.

O - the class of 2014!

My son could not have had a better time. Although he didnt get the 'bigger trophy' he sat in the back seat and kept talking about the trophy he got, the kit he won, the raffle body and the hat he was given by Oliver Clipper. And how he wanted to practice and prepare for next year. He said it was the best and only race he ever wanted to go to.

Thanks Tamiya - he is a big fan of the red & blue. Soaked in apple cider and drinking from his trophy this was his perfect weekend.
Congrats Mark...You now get experience the ups & downs of being a racing Dad. I'm sure when it's all said and done you'll look back on these days and it will be bring you a great amount of joy. Enjot the many years to come...

FMW,

Kudos to tire limiting for GT1 and GT2. Making them a handout, was pure gravey!

I glanced over the rules and noticed that you would possibly implement teardowns on BL motors. Did this come into play for weekends past?

Will carpet still implement open A tires or be going to the spec type?

Have you given thought to some of the well attended tracks in giving them a bonus 1 day race in the fall to maybe test new rules for the next year. Was thinking Saturday, just to set them apart from the regular races and give travelers travel time.

All the Best,

Coop
