Thanks
Any picture where is that? thanks

I was wondering if any of the out of town racers would be interested in a one or two warmup races at RC Madness.

It is something I can talk to Chris about.

I am sure if their is enough interest it can be arranged at some point in the spring/summer time frame. Great chance to check out the track and test and tune. It would also be a saturday event.

Let me know

Cheers

BP - I thought that might be the case, because I have actually bought parts of the website.

Senna555, or others....

Can you give me some details on traveling to your neck of the woods? For instance, would I fly into Hartford, or is there a cheaper option with a slightly longer drive you would recommend? What about hotels? I'm having trouble pulling up the website, but I wasn't sure anything was posted up there regarding these details.

Thanks!

If your flying in the best bet is Bradley Int Airport...listed as hartford but it is not in hartford located in east granby. Your looking at about a 15 minute drive from the airport to the track.

As far as hotels go you will have a bunch of choices in the area search for Enfield Connecticut and look for Route 5 or Route 190 . All the hotels are 5 minute drive and the track is 5 minutes from a local shopping mall with the usual chain eateries etc.

The site is www.rcmadness.com.

Please note NO GENERATORS will be needed...plenty of power and outlets. 20+ outlets on the outside of the building and another huge switchboard if needed that was used at the offroad nats.

Indoor pitting is available for the sun challenged...lol.

Covered outdoor pitting may be available...details to follow.

Cheers

Jamie

Hi Jamie, Great to hear the Madness is involved with this. Any thought on running a TCS type class for the regular racing schedule on Saturdays?

Hey Doc,
I get the idea that you are coming to the TCS race at Trackside. Looking forward to seeing you.

Bill, if you want to fly in here, we can just toss everything in the back of the AMG and cruise up to CT in sybaritic comfort
