COME ON GUYS lets make this race something special and show Lino's family how much we care. Even if you cant make the race stop by the shop and make a donation to the scholarship fund set up in lino's memory.
Lets get those 12th scales out to as we all know 12th scales where lino's favorite cars and what hyperforms main focus as of late was IE the "hyperform razor" so lets have a big showing of 12th scales in honor of lino.
If you have any hyperform stickers bring them I think it would be an awsome tribute to a fallen racer if all cars displayed one or more of them I know it would mean a lot for his family to see that.

Rose, Jarrod, Steve, and all,

My sincerest condolences for this truly enexpected loss. It was obvious from the time Lino spent helping anyone who asked that this hobby was truly his passion. He brought an energy to every race he attended that was unmistakable, and things felt far too quiet when he was not able to attend.

I hope that the communities he touched, both here and at the tracks, are some small comfort to his family. My heart goes out to them and I wish them all the strength in the world in this trying time.

I will definitely be at the race, and I look forward to seeing those of his extended family that I have not had the pleasure to meet in the past.

Best of luck to and love to all,

Mike D.

Alex, it will be great to see you and the RCM crowd there. Heath puts on a good show, too.

I'll definitely be there with my 1/12th scale.

I thought it was great that Lino used his knowledge/experience in an attempt to enhance the capabilities of this class with his product.

Lino will be missed

I had a chance to race with and chat with Lino at the 2006 Carpet Nats in Sacramento. He won his National title with Jarrod there and I believe he ended up making the 12th scale main himself. I'm very saddened to here this terrible news even though I didn't know him all to well he certainly seemed like a stand up guy. I guess it also reminds me of our mortality. My condolances to his family and friends.

Godspeed Lino.


Regards,

Michael Abraira

Just an update for anyone looking to go to this weekends memorial race. Maximus R/C is running 4 quals starting at noon. So far, we have about 40 people confirmed to make this race.

This is going to be a wonderful celebration of Lino's life and a great way for his family to see why he loved the hobby so much.

If you are going to be driving up, feel free to call ahead to reserve pit space: 207-351-1520

Thanks for keeping everyone updated Casey, it should be a tight field this weekend but we should do ok for pit space. It wouldnt hurt to give Maximus a call to be on the safe side.

The best thing that we can hope for is a complete sell-out of all the space that Heath has to offer. I'd love to see people pitting out of their cars in their show of support for Lino's family...

Remember, this all goes to charity.
