Remember we are running the races this sunday afternoon, April 8. This is not the usual weekend, so this is your reminder.

 

Track opens at 11AM. Racing is at 4PM.

 

We had a great turnout for the Western States a few weeks ago, so I know there are lots of cars. I hope you can all make it.

 

So who is in and what class or classes are you going to run?

 

I am in for FK at least. Hope to do RH as well.

 

Bill

Walker and Wilkins - whatever motor is faster than what Tim Wood brings with him

Hey I will bring whatever will stay on the track. I might be fast but I still can't beat Tim Wilkins, Guitarist Keith gone Bad, Mike Low, Bill Taylor, Roy Lievonos, Jason Holmes, Eric Claburn, Chuck Vaughn,Sam Rackman, and of all people Jim Waterson. Better bring your practice car when I'm on the track. As Forrest  would say practice practice practice. Quote as ( Allen Iverson would say!  Practice-Practice I don't need no stinking Practice I'm a professional) Hope to make it Sunday just to see everyone and have some fun. Thanks for the reminder BT

Here's a little help...

Forget about speed untill you got the following down!

1) Make sure your tires are true
2) Warm up tires in the middle
3) Run every lane (especially the gutters) untill you get your timing down
4) Race and keep your car on your lane. If you can keep your car on you're going to make laps not track calls.

Once the above is done then work on speed while keeping the above intact.

Any questions feel free to ask.

Eric knows what he's talking about. Only thing I can add is most passing should be done on the straight-a-way.

Yes Please Talk and Listen if one of the Faster Drivers says Coming up on you that doesn't mean he wish's you to stop then he's asking to pass in the straight a short Blip on the Controller by Black on the control panel is all that's needed not before so that both cars are Straight when it Happens never stop in or before a turn please
