We mixed things up a little this weekend.  Kurt and Chris were the only two racing their own cars.  Dave Demott showed up with a controller in his hand so into his other went my Porsche 962.  Then a phone call from Carl...." I'm on my way, do you happen to have an extra car?"  Never one to deny a friend, into his hand went my Olds 88.  Wanting to try something different myself, Kurt hands me his Toyota FRS.  Chris too was back this time with a Porsche.  It was fun trying out someone else's build, but hard not to watch your own cars as someone else raced them. 

 

Here are this weeks results...

 

1  Dave Demott                   Porsche 962 blue/yellow

2  Max Mohring                   Toyota FRS

3  Kurt Mansfield                 BMW

4  Chris Wendell                 Porsche 962 yellow/black

5  Carl Paterson                  Olds 88

A full field of eight cars filled all the slots for Sunday Hardbody racing at The Race Place.  Mike, Tom and some friends from Speed Zone made the journey over to join us.  Dave laid it down with his new Porsche followed by Andy and Kurt close behind.  I would like to thank everyone for showing up and racing.  It has been two years now with a continuously good weekly turnout.  Hardbody has become a fun and challenging class that I enjoy being a part of.  It would be nothing if not for all my fellow racers.

 

Here are this weeks results...

 

1  Dave Demott                Porsche 956 yellow/red

2  Andy Sr.                       Porsche 962 white/pink

3  Kurt Mansfield              McLaren orange

4  Tyler Donzella              Ford GP5 green

5  Mike Haskins                Lola T70

6  Tom Spellcheck           Porsche 911 green

7  Rodger A                     Dodge Challenger

8  Dan M                          Corvette silver

 

My apologies with incomplete information as I was not able to attend and am working from pictures sent to me.

Dave is smiling.  Not just a first place smirk but a real smile!  Jerry has finally returned and already one upping himself with his new bionic thumb.  A couple more laps and he will be bumping someone off the podium.  Cant wait to get back on the track.

Just a heads up to all Race Place racers...

The Race Place will be closed for annual vacation August 7th through August 28th.  Next Hardbody race will be on September 3rd.

Look forward to seeing you then with a couple of fresh builds.

The Race Place is back open after a well deserved vacation.  The weather is still nice so lots of outdoor activities has kept attendance low.  Plus most of TRP racers were out at Fast Tracks in PA for the Penn-Jersey series yesterday.  Dave Demott, Tyler Donzella and myself showed up with some new builds and ran some laps.  Dave's new Ferrari 430 was fast!  Very surprising for such a short wheelbase.  With his strategically placed weight and light body the car had lap times in the 6.8's on its first test run.  Tyler's new NASCAR body car with a very cool gold-chrome finish was looking about right and his wagon was a handful but fun to watch.  I too decided it was time to build a NASCAR, the red Pontiac was my choice.  It ran respectfully getting into the 7.1's.  KP had us all watching when he pulled out a Hess truck and started running laps on TRP's Hurricane track.  A Womp with a 16D motor powered the cab and two "C" sized batteries kept the trailer on the track while powering the lights.  Cool looking and fun to watch as the trailer swung the turns.  We laughingly discussed ideas of how much fun Hess truck tractor trailer racing could be.  That being said, today is Monday and I already have a Hess truck on its way to me from e-bay.   Some things are too much fun not to do.
