A.J. is an honorary Ohioian. Those guys from "up north" will need to apply for a temporary visa. And Pappy, you EASILY meet the age requirement. :)

Bill, you're talking about the maize and blue jersey with the bit "M" for Ohio, right? Did I just lose my "honorary Ohioan" status, Mike?

 

I would definitely put Raisin in charge of painting and mounting the body (the one that must last the whole race!) so we'll just have to wait to see what that looks like, won't we?


Never complacent - striving to race to ever increasing levels of mediocrity!

Team Southern Discomfort will be in the house!

Jay Guard, Bobby Robinson, Greg Wells, and perhaps another Southern racer, in which case the Cheater will take the position of non-driving team manager in charge of braid changes.

The required six teams have registered and paid. The race is now official. If are considering entering don't wait too long as there are only two spots left for teams.

At least one very good racer, Thom Greene, is looking for teammates. Contact him here on the blog and take one of two remaining spots.

This is a "don't miss" kind of event.

Hey Mike:
 
In the initial post you indicated that IRRA® Can-Am rules would be used. Does that mean that we'll be using Can-Am bodies this year or will it be Can-Am with a Coupe body? No problem either way, just wanted to clarify.
 
However, if it was up to me, and I'm sure everyone's happy it's not, we'd make it REALLY interesting and use IRRA® Stock Cars with at least one hour of night driving using only the car's lights. Now THAT would be an enduro!!!

Guess you remembered how much love Mike McMasters has for Stock Cars, Jay...

We switch bodies every year between Coupe and Can-Am. This year is CA. Stock Cars would be interestingly... maybe too interesting.

Lets close the loop for the race. Put me down as the last team. I'm sure that I can find two more people that will race with me. 

 

Thanks,

Everything is a go. The track will be prepped tonight and will be in great shape for the race. Team-wise we have had several roster changes which is one reason I didn't post any kind of list. It would have been obsolete as fast as I posted. And, unfortunately, we did loose one complete team to unavoidable work obligations. The good news is we have seven other teams eager and ready to race.

If there are any others wanting to race we have that one opening. This is the first year we have had an opening as it normally fills up in the first week of registrations. Now is your chance to have a great time in a Retro enduro.

Howie,

We really didn't know the team compositions until just before the race started. I'll have the info up as soon after the race as I can.

I would like to congratulate Team R-Geo for a very impressive victory.

I would also like to thank my two teammates, Thom Greene and Harold Davis, for their assistance during the race.

I especially want to thank Mike and Cindy for putting on this event. It was another day of learning, racing, eating, and fun. Team Buckeye didn't do as well as what we hoped, but we did learn was which paint not to use on a slot car body LOL.

I hope someone can at least list who was on what team. Some photos would be nice, too.


We all need to believe in something. I believe I'll have another beer.

Patience, Mike. Working on it now.

 

We left the hotel at 7:30 AM yesterday morning and I got home last night a little before 10 PM, after an all-day drive. SImply too tired to do it until today.

Thanks, Steve. I think we would've done a lot better if the chassis hadn't got wadded up. lLOL! Now you know how to fix them on the fly.   

Harold, welcome to Retro! You did a great job! 

Lastly, I'm never gonna use Pactra R/C paint again!!! I threw that can away as soon as I got home!!
