Congratulations to Kurt!  He is the third one to hit the 200 lap mark racing his new McLaren.  Tyler raced his new Porsche 962 and Glenn did exceptionally well with his little Howmett.  Glenn's car is small enough to fit under the Porsche body!  The racing gets better every week.

 

Here are this weeks results...

 

1  Kurt Mansfield                      McLaren

2  Max Mohring                        Porsche 962

We had a good turnout this past Sunday.  Congratulations to Glenn, the fourth person to join the 200 club!  And a warm welcome to Walker. A Friday flexi NASCAR racer that is now joining us for Hardbody's.  And the nicest surprise was to have Race Place owner, Jerry Herbert, race Hardbody with us for the first time!  Jerry piloted Joe Emm's Pink Porsche 962.  I was sporting a freshly painted multicolored Porsche 962 body to replace a well seasoned old one.

 

Just a reminder,  The Race Place will be closed until September 6th with the exception of Fridays 6-11 PM.

Great paint job Max. The car looks to be quick as well. The 962 is a favorite in our GT1 class. Congrats Glenn. The Lola is a personal favorite and I run it in our Can-Am class. Post some photos on chassis set up if you can

thanks Rich, I will take pix of the chassis for you. Yes I use brass pans, and they are soldered very close to being as flush as possible to the center section of the chassis bottom.  No one else is using this set up. I still use the H&R body pins and aluminum brackets, and I prefer to use the ProTrack aluminum pins on the body, as they don't break if you crash. This body is a bit of a tight fit, so I don't have as much body float as I would like. I will be building more vintage era cars this winter, and will continue to use the brass side pans. Note that my cars are much heavier than the other fast cars, and I run a different crown gear than they do- I use 29t vs 32-33 t gears that others run in cars without any chassis weight. So lots of options in chassis/body tuning and still get the same quick lap times.

in the previous race, I had worked on chassis tuning on my Howmet Can-am car, with it's short wheelbase and tires tucked under the wheel wells, I managed to get it from 7.75 to 7.03 lap times- quite a task! And 194 laps total is respectable for that tiny and heavy car- it surprised me too! For this last race, I tweaked my Can-Am Tamiya bodied Lola &70 a bit more and got another 6.85 out of it, but this race I managed to get 200 laps, and a surprise win in a field of really fast and good handling cars, all much lighter than mine too.  Here are the pix as requested:

Two weeks of not racing makes us slow.  At first we thought the track voltage was low, but it wasn't, it was us.  Andy debuted his new Porsche 962 and Tyler brought Herbie as the pace car.

It was a busy weekend off the track for a few of us however the other half the crew was able to put it down.  Its good to see you guys back!  From the smiles in the pictures I'm sure it was a good time.  I enjoy seeing Mike's wild and cool rides.

The rumors were true, Charlie is back!  Now he just has to pick up the pace.  Tyler and Kurt gave me run for the money this week.  Hardbodies were a fun ending to a full weekend of racing Retro Flexi-car at The Race Place.

I think sixteen hours of Retro racing at Pt Jeff the day before left most of us exhausted.  Hardbody was a good way to end a weekend of racing.

 

*** Next Sunday the 23rd The Race Place will be having its first three track series monthly event that runs most of the day.  Hardbody is scheduled to run after but might start late depending on how the day flows.  If you need info text or pm me and I will keep you up to speed.***

Last week the Three Track Series event left us exhausted but its back to business as usual this week.  Unfortunately Glenn had technical difficulties, seemed to be a tire issue.  Looks like Jerry Sr is starting to get the hang of driving Hardbodies which is going to help him in retro as well.

Even though the main event for the weekend was the Fall Brawl a few of us were still able to make it together for some Hardbody racing.  Joining us this week for the first time is a special young man named Mikey.  He has been racing Friday night Nascar with us for a while and does well in his class.  For his debut he piloted my infamous loaner car, a Olds 88.  Coming in at a 5 inch wheelbase and with a low stance it is a forgiving car to drive.  With a stock Parma resistor controller in his hand Mikey turned a lap total of 174 and a fast lap of 7.5, great work for his first Hardbody race.  Charlie made podium this week but Jerry Sr is not far behind.  I'm still waiting for that sleeper to wake up lol.

Yesterday was a full day of racing at The Race Place.  The second event in the Three Track Series, we ran three races before even getting to Hardbody!  But we all stuck around and finished the day with lots of laughs.  It was good to have Mike back again to race, thanks for waiting and marshaling.  After kicking butt and winning the 4 1/2 NASCAR class Andy's daughter Jess raced her first Hardbody....very cool young lady.  We decided to cut the length of the race down to six heats.  With eight racers it left two marshals and ran it straight trough.  Talking with fellow racers we might take the opportunity and try racing on the Challenger track next week while it is set up in the road coarse layout.

This week we tried something different.  We raced on the Challenger roadcorse.  This track is usually set up as an oval so we don't get much time on it in this configuration.  Some like it and some did not but in the end I think everyone had a good time.  Maybe we will get another chance before the it changes back to the oval again.

good to see new racers these past few weeks. I have not made it due to both a cold/flu and my back went out again (lotsa pain, can't bend or twist). Will return to racing when I am feeling better.

All of us at The Race Place are wishing you a speedy recovery Glenn!!!  We were back on the Lightening track this past Sunday but will on the Challenger roadcorse again next week. Joe had crusty tire issues stemming from age and lack of use leaving him to play a game of 'how many times can the tail of his car tap the walls on the outer lanes'.  Mike drove his BMW convertible like he stole it.  Dukes of Hazzard style all the way, he got every bit from that car.

It was back on the Challenger again this week for some tight turned hill climbing action.  A nice field of eight cars made for some good racing.  Mike did well with it being his first time on this track.  Miss Jess Holman did even better putting her in second place for a podium finish.  We were all in good spirits being the end to a fun filled weekend of Flexi NASCAR, Retro and Hardbody racing at The Race Place.

We got one more chance to race on the Challenger before the tracked got changed over for the oval race season.  Mike debuted a hot Porsche 918 Spyder.  Jess Holman made the podium again with her lighting fast Porsche 962.  And Kurt took top spot his newly built and beautifully detailed BMW.  Jerry Sr is moving up in the finishing order...go Jerry!  Back on the Lightening next week.

We had eight lanes full of fun on Sunday.  Some racers were tired after running the Penn-Jersey series since early that morning and decided to go home however friends Al and Martin stopped by to race with us. Stephen has been moving up the ranks at TRP and stayed to race Andy's green Lotus.  Jerry pushing the envelope this week making for some very loud and amusing de-slotting.  And my apologies to Mike Haskins for occasionally misspelling his name and improperly identifying his car here on the forum.  You figure that doing this weekly I should be able to get it right...lol.  All said and done, there was some really good racing and of course lots of laughs.  BTW Tyler took the top spot by only a foot and a half ahead of me at the end of the race.

Another week of eight lanes full of Hardbodies.  If we could get everyone to show up at once there would be at least sixteen!  Tyler hit the 200 lap mark again.  Only half a lap from setting a new record.  Andy did some last minute repair to Jess's Porsche.  And Chuck returned after a month to set this races fast lap.  Good racing and lots of laughs as always.

Its been a couple of weeks of other racing and personal obligations but a few of us managed to pull it together this past Sunday.  Tom doesn't often get a chance to race with us so it was good to see him.  I managed to slip in front of Tyler this week.  He was having body issues causing random desloting.  Good close racing between Glenn, Jerry and Tom.

I'm not sure what happened to Chucks beautiful Porsche but it looks like he will be retiring that one.  Good to see Charlie back again!  And Jerry's lap count keeps getting higher, not far from the 190 mark. :clapping:

I'm feeling inspired to build a new car.  Hmmm what body to chose...

There were some good looking Hardbodies to hit the track this past weekend.  A warm welcome to painter extraordinaire Brian Blaser and his beautify done purple and silver Chevrolet.  Brians car even had functioning headlights and tail lights.  I think we need to have a headlight race this spring.  These cars look awesome racing together!

The final Penn-Jersey race of the season had most of the crew out in PA representing. That left only four racers this week.  With Kendall Paterson as the race director, and only marshal, we were wise to be cautious and keep the cars in the slots.  Mikey did great! Setting his personal best in both lap times and lap totals :good:

It went down this weekend.  New lap total and fast lap records were set in Hardbody on Sunday.  Tyler Donzella raised the bar and set the new lap total at 202 laps.  And I had been trying to beat a previous fast lap of 6.80 and finally shattered it at 6.69.  Brian Blaser piloted a sweet 53 Chevy and Tyler Irwin joined in with his Mustang (also painted by Brian).  Mikey was back in his Porsche with a new motor installed and Miss Jess Holman ran Kurt's FRS.  Good times, good racing.

The coolness of Brian's 53 Chevy inspired me to pull my Mercury off the shelf and put it back on the track.  Following suit, Kurt busted out a Honda Odyssey minivan with ground effects and a spoiler.  Defiantly not able to keep up with the Porsches or the other wider cars it was fun and challenging driving something different.  These cars look awesome racing around and draw lots of attention from spectators.

now that I see some rat rod/hot rods it's time for me to race my '34 Ford again! 2 classes raced at the same time: real race cars (setting track records) and hot rods: the coolness factor is off the charts!  I love it! :)

First off all of us at The Race Place would like to send our best wishes to Jerry Herbert Sr.  He had reconstructive surgery on his hand last week and we wish him a speedy recovery.  It was not the same without him there on Sunday. 

 

Lots of fun this week.  Carl Paterson has been busy tending to life for a while now so it was good to have him back.  He raced one of Tyler's cars and wound up with his first podium finish in Hardbody.  Tom's nicely detailed 911 handled amazing for such a short wheelbase car.  His consistent driving landed him with his first podium spot at The Race Place as well.  Kurt showing up again with another new car, this one a vintage Skyline.  Chuck and CJ Malave raced father and son in their team orange colors.  Fast laps and cool cars.

Our good friends Mike Haskins and Tom Spellcheck were back again with us this week for some pre-Easter Hardbody racing.  Tom returned with his sweet 911 but this time it was wet sanded and buffed out to a mirror finish.  Anything for an extra tenth or two, lol.  Tyler showed up with a newer Mustang build but the motor gave up the magic smoke during practice (barely seen in the picture).  And Mike brought in some deliciousness in the form of home baked cookies.  Good friends and fun racing.  See everyone in two weeks.
