Today's very successful Race Results: I was able to win the Mixed Race, both before and after all handicap laps were applied. The car ran very smoothly, and while the current motor didn't quite have the ponies compared to last time, the brakes were excellent, and that made it easier for me to drive. I'll hang on to it, clean it up, maybe try the 2nd motor that was sent along with it, and run it again in two weeks. A few others are starting to build cars for this class, and most are taking a good close look at this one! Everyone admires how smooth it runs.

Another race, another win. :-)  No new track record; too many track calls slowed things down. Plus the brakes started going, and that slows me down. Still, the car is great, and a pleasure to race. Here are the results from today:

Another excellent race by Eddie driving Pablo's hardbody Can Am Lola. We had another new Can Am Lola in the race built/driven by Tim Herrera. Tim's Lola was very fast as well. For the complete photo/race report, here's the link: https://socald3.smug...nVKwC/i-sdBXnm7
