I saw in Bill Pinch's email that we are having the 4th Enduro/JK Indy Car race of 2015 at Fast Eddie's in Pinellas Park on Dec 12, 2015. Ed Hoffman's new slot car facility is located at:

 

5609 70th Ave. North

Pinellas Park, Florida

 

The hillclimb that Ed has is the same one that was in Jacksonville for the last 5 years or so. Ed has stated in another posting for GRRR that the braid depth is the same as it was in Jacksonville.

 

Ed: which track do you want the JK Indy car race on? Hillclimb or your oval?

 

Ed has a cool sticker for his raceway. I got one from him recently at P1. I stuck it on my 60's slot car box that I have been dragging around with me since 1964.

It would be cool to have the Indy Car race on the big oval, kinda like real Indy Cars.

As of right now the young bucks are coming to see the track that taught us everything we know
Loose Is fast but the ragged edge is faster

Youth and skill will always beat age and treachery!

I have not seen one. However, MySeries races have the door opening at 8am. Handout motors as soon as Bill gets there. The JK Indy Car race should be at about 9:30am. I think this race is on the oval. Then 15 to 20 minutes of open track time of the hillclimb. Then the endurance race. At least this is how the last couple races went. We should finish up by 2pm.

 

You and Nathan should feel at home over there.
