How about some pictures of the cars?

John Austin did a great job, in a fairly wild race, to take the win with a nice 199 laps.

After just an OK start, Kato really rolled the last 4 heats, running fast time in all 4.

He pulled within 1 lap of Lee, but settled for 3rd.

Johnny Slotcar put in another strong drive, to take his 2nd win of the day.

Lee was runner-up, again.

Bill Spires was real fast, to round out the podium.

10 racers for GTP.

Dale Lipe, despite doing his best on Black, to throw the race away, had a little too much for John Austin, preventing the Johnny Slotcar, clean sweep.

Thanks to Mike for adding to the fun we already have racing, his running commentary adds to the ambience of a bunch of "kids" still racing. Next race January 8th 2017. Milleniums, Retro F-1's and GTP.
