Yes, first weekend in March 2007. That makes it March 3-4, 2007. Scotty confirmed with Fred on Wednesday.

Hope to see you here - unfortunately, I haven't won mini here at Trackside since coming back from CA Nationals - Nathan has beaten me (and everyone else) EVERY week.

I did the post production, but real thanks is really to Doc Mertes, who was kind enough to do the filming.

Still waiting to hear anything about Cinci or Memphis. I have to plan around those two since they are my driving distance races. Hopefully they won't put Cinci and Trackside back-to-back again next year.

Not sure that will happen if Trackside is the first weekend, and Seattle is the 3rd weekend

Tom, I haven't heard anything about Fredrick yet. Don't know Richard and have no idea whether he is even interested in hosting another TCS event.

Hopefully Cinci will not be the weekend before Trackside, as I will be in Palo Alto visiting my daughter at grad school. Weekend before that would be cool, although I'd have to fly out the night of the race, do a quick turnaround and fly to Vegas at 6am the next morning for a management meeting...

Don't do the PM thing, but just sent you an e-mail with my home address. If your e-mail addy has changed, send me the current one at [email protected] and I'll respond.
Thanks!

Sounds about right to me, Doug. Last year we ran the first several races back to back to back, which really only impacts those of us who fly in from out of town. Looking forward to racing at your lovely establishment on St PAtty's Day weekend....

Does anyone know if Cinci is hosting this year. I hope they are, cuz they put on a good event and the drive is somewhat reasonable.
Is the Trackside date a definite?
Is 103GT going to be a class?
Enquiring minds want to know

Well, since Frederick, MD had the March 17th race last year I guess they will not have a TCS race this year....

Looks like I'll be having a Tamiya yard sale soon....

I think my pat answer for all things next year for TCS will be 12/01, if they are earlier then hey they are earlier.

If you look at last years rules they came out 11-29-05, which is normal timing. Usually between postings and talk from Tamiya they promise something earlier but never do. My new TCS purchases have come to a halt until I see what the new rules are.

If you truely want a bit of a sneak peek check out TCS Canada. Other than their selection on batteries, motors, lemans and rally usually they give you a peek of what the U.S. might do as far as new stuff.
