Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Is there going to be any "live" coverage of the forthcoming Nats?

*sigh*

 

Seems even the USRA has different rules/classes each year they run the Nats.

 

It was so simple back then.....

 

I15

G27

Semi Pro G7

Pro G7

 

Well, it's Rohnert Parks' race and I hope they have a very successful one at that!  And good luck to all the racers that are in attendance.  Maybe they'll have a really good general meeting and get back to what's good for the racers.

Is this the warmup race?

Good turnout. And 6 laps covered the top five. Good close racing. I got to order one of Swiss's new $25 Gp-F chassis and build one of these.
