Races will be held in a All Mains format.
Qualifying will determine main seeding.

Marks Model World Flatter but Glass Smooth G19 Gerding King Track is ideal for these cars, The spec motor levels the field and makes it more a test of driving and car setup ability and provides some challenging, clean, close racing!!! If you are a good driver and have been out-.motored in other wing car classes you will like Gp-F , fast enough to be fun but slow enough that you have time to react and avoid wrecks. Marshal has time to get car back on before someone comes around again so major pileups are few.
$20 entry includes practice session and lunch. Mark is an excellent Chef and always feeds the troops well. This race is open to any and all challengers!!!!!!!!!!

Weekly racing is held every Sunday at 2pm. For the weekly races we place the top eight qualifiers in A main and the next 8 in the B main and so on...so regardless of skill level you have a chance to win your main.

As always, This will be a well attended Major Wing Car Event!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Marks Model World
