It was a small turn-out, but a good race among the eight who made it.  

 

Farrout Club regulars had the home-track advantage, having raced at King Mini Boola Raceway many times.

 

The podium was...

 

1st: Tom Giese

2nd: Christophe Deluy,

3rd: Eddie Shorer

 

A couple of pics are attached.

Eddie decided to make it exciting by losing one of his lead wires in his second heat, but surged back to make the podium.

Eddie, that ain't no car you're holding! That is a nice track layout though. Looks like a relaxing time.

 

Are they 1/24?

 

Opps, saw the 1/32 racing info.

 Here's a Youtube link to a few seconds of video from the racing. It'll give you an idea of things.

Mod podium: Tim Herrera, Mike Low, Chris Sukimoto

 

(Eddie ran an out of spec car just to race with us in the mod class)

 

Thanks to Eddie for hosting, Boola King just like it's cousin the Blue King.

 

We started at 11 AM, finished at 4 PM, nice enjoyable race day, had time to have dinner with the gf.

 

Tough close racing, the Boola King: you really have to drive this track.

 

The tight specs for the cars made the racing really close.

 

A good stock ran as fast as the mods, the mods had just a little more speed than a stock.

The spec tires made the racing close, but you still have to prep the tires right.

 

Next Race:  Buena Park Raceway on the flat track - August 9
