I really appreciate the reports and the legwork you do, Cheater. Really wanted to be there for this one.

Sorry about the nerf. "Sorry? Sorry? There's no apologizing in slot car racing!" 

Besides, where would I even begin?   I should probably start with my wife ...

 

"I don't often get very many "fast laps" but I very often get many laps quickly."

 

The only thing I know about slot cars is if I had a good time when I leave the building! I can count the times I didn't on one hand!

Les pulled after the first heat, as he found he was so tired his timing was way off and he didn't want to get in the way of the other drivers. Good sportsmanship in my book.

I must be reading the same book. Les, if you feel a little light headed have a seat, listen to your body, and save your strength.

OK, guys, I was told this morning I'd misread the LaneMaster reports in terms of what lanes the drivers made their fast laps on; I'm correcting my errors now. Affected results are the two GTC classes.
