:o The name "Dunny" was not that popular in Ohio but this song was big in the 70s here.  :dance3:

Looks great, Jens!

 

And I like your work area; how can one tell if you're working unless the bench is cluttered, right? Mine looks the same.

Viola a Bardahl Kurtis Indy made with a bit of artistic licence on it's way to the US.

Great looking car Jaak.

Boy those rear tires look huge.

Looks like the next race is going to be a good one.

Looking forward to it.

I really enjoyed this build, :good: 
Have send the parcel with priority and tracking but am in Italy at the moment for the Mini Monte Carlo and did not take the tracking number.

Saturday I will know where it is hanging out.

:huh:

As I mentioned before, I'll be happy to send them off to another venue/other venue's, but you or someone else might have to do the negotiating.

 

I'm swamped  with business and a bunch of other stuff at the moment.

My idea is for a proxy event, at least held at my raceway, where the cars would be run on both the flat track and the King, with

the combined lap total for both tracks, would determine the winner.

Mike, no problem, as you mentioned in the beginning you were only planning to hold the 2 races.

 

Somewhere through this thread, I thought another race/venue was suggested, and I was just checking.

 

I'll be happy to get my car back after the next race, if there are no other rounds planned.

 

Not long to go now.

:)
