Hi everybody,

I made a post in January to tell you that a French began a season Wing since 2016 in Brühl, Germany.

http://slotblog.net/topic/65801-new-wing-car-racer/#entry622215

My first race was held in February.
This first experience was difficult, as it took me to learn a new way.

My second race in June was much cooler. I can rotate regularly. I do not lose my car on track !!
I start taking really fun. The German team is great! I learn step by step.

Next race on August 27.
Christophe Doucet, who lived 18 years in Canada and made Wing Car racing in the USA contacted me. He's back in Fance in Paris.
He's coming with me to Brühl.

Group F racers, L-R, Earl Wilson, Tim Neja, Mike Reynolds, Lance Lee, Ed Cicoria, Joe Chevy, Christophe Doucet, Sam Rackham, Russel Gale, JB Barnett.

It's a pilot who made good results in Nats G12 from what I saw.

Yet another driver and them we can form a team of France !!! :D

Thanks for the report Sloteur... Christophe Doucet? Now there's a name I haven't heard for many years! Ask him if he remembers Les Marmousets and the FFSR...

Looks like you are having some fun.

Maybe in the future I'll make it there myself. I've yet to look into travel details but my wife has family in Germany we plan to visit while I'm in Bulgaria.Although with a new baby its still going to be a while before we travel again. I've still got my eyes on trying to make it there since her family is close ;)

Christophe say this :

"Et oui je connais Don (le petit gars de Chicago),j'ai couru contre lui à Paris et aux Marmousets."

 

"And yes I know Don (the little guy from Chicago), I ran against him in Paris and the Marmousets."

Are there any clubs in France where you can race wing cars?

Nope Dennis, and as far as I know there haven't been since the 80s... wing racing never really caught on here. Like the guy above says, they have to go to Germany for their wings...

Thanks Don. That is what I see as well. I also see that many clubs still race on plastic track while in Germany and Spain around Barcelona are converting to wood. Sweden also has a number of clubs with wood tracks.
