The inaugural JK RTR Indy Car race was held at Bill Pinch's track in Melbourne Florida on Sept 12. We were surprised to have 11 entrants for this first race. Way to go you guys! We did not state it at the time of the race, but the drivers were separated into Expert (E) and Novice (N) groups.  The race was very close between Dennis and Matt, with Dennis taking a one lap victory  The overall finishing order is shown below.

 

       Driver (class)        total laps  fastest lap     lane

1. Dennis Demole (E)     205      4.4490 sec    black

2. Matt Boman (E)          204      4.3284 sec    purple

3. Doc Dougherty (E)     200       4.4492 sec    yellow

4. Marcus Ramos (E)     192      4.6087 sec     purple

5. Nathan Pickett (E)      186      4.5502 sec    purple

6. Charles Harley (N)     185      4.7220 sec    yellow

7. Greg Walker (E)         183      4.6677 sec    blue

8. Walker Carpenter (N) 169      4.8788 sec    black

9. Jim Smith (N)              155      4.9417 sec   orange

10. Captn Bob (N)           94        4.9922 sec   green

11. Mike Henry (E)          16        4.9374 sec   red

 

Since we missed to boat on the expert vs novice drivers at the time, we only have a picture of the top three.

Dennis Demole (winner) is in the middle. Matt Boman (2nd place) is on the left and Doc Dougherty (3rd place) is on the right.

I think Doc will chime in here but I believe they are running stock Hawk 7 motors.

The RTR car comes with a Hawk 7 motor. We have installed rules to keep the cars as close to box stock as possible. For example, the gear ratio most remain as 10T on a 37T. Tires must be plastic rim JK tires, etc. I was pleasantly surprised with the 11 car entry list. The MySeries directors will most likely include this car class in next years race meets.

 

I want to add that I ran basically the RTR car as it came out of the box. I added reinforcement to the body, added some axle spacers to the front axle, and re-routed the existing lead wires. And I ran an easy 3rd with very little practice.  The car is very good right out of the box.

 

This car class is intended to get new blood into the MySeries events. So this was a very good start.

Looks like it was a great event.  Too many schedule conflicts (Go Gators!) for me to make it to Melbourne.  Hope to see y'all in Winter Garden.

 

According to the driver classification rules y'all sent me to type up ..... An expert is anyone who has ever finished on the podium at a My Series event.  That means Charles Hurley is an Expert.  He finished 2nd in LMP at The Race Place in August.

Rollin, yep I remember that. The problem is that I make a recommendation, and nobody follows up on it or commits.  After the Winter Garden MySeries event, Greg Walker wants to have a general meeting with the race way owners and the racers. The meeting is to be at a near by restaurant. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss next years program, and hopefully give out trophies for the 4" NASCAR, LMP, GTP, Group F and Group 12 car classes.
