We're off to a "great" start so let's keep it up.

Our second race of the season is at Roadster Raceway (30 miles west of Columbus) on Oct. 10th. It will be a four race event starting with F1, Can Am, JK Spec and GT Coupe. !st, 2nd and 3rd place plaques will be awarded for F1, Can Am and GT Coupe. There will also be concours prizes (donated by Outisight) for all three classes. There will also a 1st place plaque and prizes for the JK Spec class donated by JK Products.

I-70 to route 54 exit (about 30 west of Columbus). Go South (a couple of miles) to Old Osborne Rd.(it sneaks up on you so watch real close), turn left, go 2 miles East to 12700. The house sits way back off the road and the barn with the track is just to the right of it.

Practice all day and evening on Friday. Will open at 8:00 AM on Saturday and we should start tech at 10:30 AM.

There will be no food or drinks available so bring your own. Malcolm will supply a food and drink recyle center (an outhouse). :laugh2: ;)



If you plan on attending please let me know so Malcolm has an idea of what to expect for pit space.

I figured no OVRR races for me until after Marching Band season was over. Then I found Oct 10th was open, no band comp; however, my wife started making plans for the family. At this point I'm afraid I have to be committedly non-committal. (Darn, cause I really would like to race too)

Malcolm says he has four tables and some chairs, what he had when we were all at his house playing. So if you have a table and chairs that you can bring it would probably be a good idea.

I came, I saw, I crashed out. :rolleyes:

I had a good time. Malcom's track is a work of art, but it presents some unique challenges. I got my F1 car to work pretty well except in red and white. My CanAm car was just completed the night before and it had loads of issues that I never really got sorted out. My JF Spec car wasn't bad, but it wasn't fast either.

I believe Paul won F1 & CanAm, I think Tony won JK Spec, and I don't think GT Coupe ran.

Unfortunately, Malcom's race computer decided to go Tango Uniform at the start of the JK Spec race. That took about 45 mins to get a replacement computer up and running the race control software.

I believe there were 12 in F1, 14 in CanAm and 7 in JK Spec.

Yup, Paul Martin was the class of the field. He had a great car and drove perfectly. I must take a picture and post of my CanAM that caught a rider up the short chute into the 90, WAMO! BLAM! several pieces LMAO. Hit hard enough to yank the lead wires off the buss bars, along with the motor box, right pan, bite bar. This one will have an R Title with it. hahahahaha

Great field of guys to race with......

And 3 in the GT Coupe race. We did run it, but I don't remember who won. Garry Haworth will be posting a race report soon. :)

Collateral damage when you get in a rider in the short chute into the ninety and the driver of the lane has his car going into the bank. LMAO The Roadster Raceway turned into The Roadkill Raceway for this Samurai.
Notice the bite bar is also out of the upstop but still attached to the main rails? Oh and Ron, I think the magnets may need installed, hahahahahah

Rick,

It looks like you might have had a few cold solder joints :D . Welcome to the club. Did the magnets really shift? I hit so hard one time the arm pushed the endbell out of the can (no screws), but the magnets stayed put.

I am not a doctor, but I played one as a child with the girl next door.

No cold joints here. Just the "Mother of All" wall shots. Seismologists in nearby Dayton measured it at a 6.3 :laugh2: :laugh2:
