Tim, Very nice. I have a car for Zimmerman. One little problem.... H/P.

 

B_________. Where are you. More to the point I need your help.

 

 My  PACMAN is really taking control of my ablity to control my Disorders.

 

I am scheduled to meet with UCLA  NEUROSURGERY GROUP in JUly.

 

I will meet with speacials. and look at becomeing a canidate. For "DBS".

 

DBS is DEEP BRAIN SURGERY.

 

I may be having the procedure done.

 

I hope to organise a  big event. With a goal of awareness.

 

Some of my fellow slot car racers know about my Disablity.

 

During the rest of this year, I would like to see if a racing around the world event is possible.

 

 Starting in January at THE CHECKPOINT, and traveling around to race tracks and racing any and all groups of Cars'

.

This maybe a pipe dream. I guess I could stop RACING SLOTCARS and start  surfing The PIPE LINE.

 

I hope some thing can come out olf this.

 

More to come. This is a possiblity  and fact finding effort.

 

I hope to see all at the Zimerman.

 

Your friend,

 

BOB  "STORK" CRANE

Craig, the race will begin a couple hours after the finish of F-1.  Depends on the size of the field-- Tech inspection is starting at 10:00am-- so maybe 3:00pm? Probably best guess for you.

  Craig,

       I imagine the F1 race will be over about 3-4 PM and the power will then be set up for Retro Pro. Maybe an hour or 2 for practice and tech at the usual 6PM or so.  Since the SCRRA really has nothing to do with the running of the Retro Pro races anymore, the RP racers can pretty much determine whatever schedule they want Sunday afternoon.......... :)

     

      See everyone this weekend! :good:

Dennis,

You should try and make one of our events down here. I don't run the King track races any longer, just the BPR flattrack races. But, I'm going Sat to watch the Zimmerman race. These guys go nuts for this thing. They don't call it the "Festival of Speed" for nothing!

Ha! Nice! You'll have a blast at the FAMOSA. Wish you well and a good run. Haven't been to the ol' FAMOSA track in some time. 

They used to call it "The Smoker's Meet". Have fun.

Bryan,

That A main was, uh, something to watch. Duran and Ben Jr kept themselves out of trouble, but, man, it was interesting!

Can't wait for the report.

   Jim,

      Another couple mentions here........just a GREAT drive by Marc Franco with HIS new Hi Tech chassis moving up to the A Main with a SUPER run in the B Main which totally shattered his personal best lap total!

     Also, a nearly flawless drive by Mark MacVittie, also coming from the B Main with his new DCR chassis and hung close to Ben Jr with a fine run to 2nd!

     Congrats Duran, Ben Jr. and Tim on the wins and congrats to Marc and Mark!!

 

    Full report with pics up shortly..............
