Thursday, Sept. 22nd.

The Fall/ Winter 2011 Series is about to begin.  This week we will race our Grab-@ss GT and run two practice, tuning races with Vintage LeMans and Trans Am, with the following Thursday beginning competition points.  I apologize for being a terrible host last week by forgetting to encourage a conversation as to the rules and classes for the first racing week. So...  reluctantly I chose what I felt may require the least amount of prep for the first week of racing.  We will run Vintage LeMans, 1965 to 1972 (Lolas, GT 40s, Ferraris, Porsches) up to blue motor specs.  Since several GT 40s are now represented by NSR and Slot.It, and we have the Ford P68 and Porsche 917 also represented by NSR, anyone choosing to run another manufacturers brand may upgrade the cars with Slot.It type replacement parts.  For the T/A class, lets start with a box stock type car, (just tires, braid, no gears) including the SCX Cudas and Pioneer Mustangs.  See you at the track!
