I was honored to have the Czech's come by and visit Chicagoland Raceway, on the way to the airport.
 
Shown is ISRA #1 racer, Horky, looking intently at the monitor, as ISRA #2, Tonda , tops him, in "Hot Lap Fever", on the Fiedler Flat track.
 
These guys really put on a show, at the 2016 ISRA World Championships, at Mid-America Raceway, for eight days, earlier this month.

MIKE!  You should have told him it's the new not yet released wireless controller.  :D  Available soon!  Also working on a telepathic version after an implant is installed and you must wear a 3D headset.  Where it is installed in the real question..........

When I read the title to this thread I thought it was going to be about going to the bathroom at a USRA/ISRA race.  :D

Tonda ran 4.33 on Green, with Jim Crider's car.

IMO,very impressive, with only about 50-60 laps on the track.

Czech team is in a league by themselves!

 

Swept all four classes at this years Worlds race, with Mr. Recek taking over the #1 ranking with his dominating performance, winning 3 of 4 classes with the best the world could throw at him. Awesome!

KVP,
Maybe I should add an "ex" to the title of this thread. Lol

We ran on Green because Michael Landrud and some Swedish racers had stopped by Sunday.

We're started running a Eurosport on Orange, but with just running the Sano, with heavy, Retro cars, it seemed too sticky.

We switched to Green, which was much better.

I avoided Yellow on both Sunday, and Tuesday, because I thought it would be too choppy,for someone new on the track, especially with a Eurosport car.

Maybe I should add that the gentleman in the far back to the left is Vojtik Sr., Tonda's father.
