WOW WHAT A RACE !!!!
Thank you to Doug for devoting all of your time, and effort to pull off one of the best run events in the R/C hobby.
Dan, Ken, Kevin, Mike, Ritchie, Troy, if you wern't racing, you all were helping out another Racer, working the counter, or on the second Mic helping call the race, or seeing if you can help get a racer ready for the next heat, Thanks Guys. Thanks to TAMIYA for providing the great awards, and sponcering the TCS series at not cost to the racers.
Cool to meet some of the OUT-OF-Town R/C Tech racers, hope to see you at furture TCS races.

I'll try to get Doug to post the results in the AM.

Spec-Paul Powers
MiniM03-Troy Crabtree
M04-Shane Elliot
Gt3- Bruce Hickman
GT2-Juan Aveytia
GT1-Aaron Biner
F1-Ritchie Renyolds
Group C-Ritchie Renyolds
F103GT-Garber

I think that was it. Great job from all the racers getting to Tech on time, and being ready. We had some timing issues that lost a few minutes but all in all lost maybe 15min all day. We had 116 entries and 109 actually race. The largest TCS in NW history by a good margin.

Thanks again to Doug for providing the facility and Tamiya for the whole TCS series. We all got treated to some great racing here in the NW.

THE BEST!!!
All of you guys who were unable to make it to SIR for this weekend's TCS race missed some of THE BEST racing I've seen in a couple of years.

Many thanks to Doug, Dan, Kevin, Troy and everyone else connected with SIR- you guys run a class show there. Great track, super facility, well stocked hobby shop...what more could a die-hard racer want?

Special thanks to Dan for working with me through my Mini issues. Even though I wound up pretty much right where I started, it was good enough for second place, and only a second away from Troy. And another big THANKS!!! to Bruce Hickman for the setup tips on the TA05. Welcome to GT3, Bruce!

Let's do this again...in MEMPHIS at the end of the month.

Later
Doc

I just wanted to give props to Doug at seattle indoor raceway and the crew there. You guys ran an awesome race. Kevin thanks again for everything this past weekend. I'm renting my own car next time. I just glad to be home alive. Dan thanks for letting me use your stocker in the main. But, I looked in my 415 manual, and the internal ratio is different than the ta05. Maybe thats why it was not quite as fast as it was in your car.


Don't forget, " Vote For Pedro".

Juan remember my car is converted to the 05 pullies so it is the same as a 05.

For anyone staying at Casa du Michellich do not I repeat DO NOT use the shuttle service. If you do notice the lack of upholstry in the passenger seat. Juan is still trying to remove it...

Again great having all our TCS buddies in from out of town. .I always look forward to seeing all the friends from around the country at Nats and now hopefully at the Regionals in the future also.

Default TCS @ SIR

Thanks to all the folks @ SIR, great race, facility, and guys that run the shop,
Doug, Dan, Troy, Kevin. Bruce and I really enjoyed the time spent there.

I wish I could have done a little better than Qualified 5th and finishing 5th in the A GT2 Main, the racing was intense in the GT2 class !!! the Main was very busy with 10 cars on the track. I was up to 3rd by the 2 min mark but made a mistake on the back side of the track, not bad for a old guy @ 51 years old. I can say that they have the best stocked Hobby shop for Tamiya parts I have seen. I can't wait for next year's race, maybe we will have F103GT class by then ?? I did purchase a F103GT from them "Great Price " $109.99.

Steve

Wow and from the sounds of it we may not see you this year either!
Too bad you didn't come out for the race you would have enjoyed it. You need to plan a trip out here for next year.
