What a funny idea! In Germany we would have had Lotti Krekel!

I'm think right around Labor Day for the race. That would give everyone time to check over their car or maybe new guys (like Charlie's Anglers) to build one.

Very, very cool ... looks like we have enough entries to call it a race! :victory:

Thanks guys... :good:

 

Does Labor day timeframe work for everyone?

If so I'll set a date with Bill P. to run on the track shown in the youtube above.  It WILL be close racing in the Sunshine State :sun_bespectacled:  

 

Rules are the same.  

 

I'll start a new thread with the procedures and guidelines.

 

The time to enter is still wide open.

Spoke to Bill Pinch today he picked a date and is very happy to accommodate us and co-promote this proxy event by getting the best oval racers in central Florida to come out and play.

 

Full details will follow in a new thread.

Jens do you have a file you can post of the results. I have boxes to send cars to people but not big enough to hold the legal size envelope.

Dave, we will give them a go.... It should be a fun close race on the oval @ 11 volts.

 

 Guys, check the sign-up sheet for a good qualifying draw.

Unfortunately, I'm afraid my chassis skills are not there yet...gotta pass on this one.  :cray:

 

I do plan to attend - and will volunteer to take some pics and video for the Gator.
