Sano 9 will continue on in the first weekend in October, 2-4.

This was discussed and made it on to the IRRA® website, back in the winter, but I guess with being real busy, I omitted to announce it here on Slotblog.

Same schedule as last year.

With no uncertainty, like last year, due to the move, and both tracks running superbly, there has been a lot of interest.

Same schedule as last year.

For GTC hand-out motors will there be the option to purchase additional?

 

And what time will the doors open on Thursday?

Definitely, you'll he able to purchase more motors.

IIRC, I've never offered less than three handout motors to racers.

Thursday morning will be 8 AM or earlier.

.015-020" on both tracks.

You don't change from one track to another.

The same chassis, with no adjustments, has podiumed on both tracks.

As a reference, with a JK nosepiece, I run .020" with a cut-down Parma Blade.

The clear Lexan wall in the deadman was well liked at the last Sano.

I've now added one in the donut.

I still have to decorate it below the track surface, but here it is.

Sweet little car.

Undetermined owner from Hinsdale. I spotted it while walking with my wife a few years ago.

Just posted it as a test with my new phone.

Owned a Bugeye for several years in the '70s.

Fun car, but only for cruising locally. Not as much fun to drive long distance as the A.

Bernie,

 

They took the fence down today.

I think there is hope it will open by the Sano.
