Since we have little or no time on this new four-lane track, GRRR has organized a practice day on Saturday, August 17. The track will be initially setup on one of two configurations (oval or road course) and part way through the day, the track will be switched over to the other configuration.

 

The raceway will open at approximately at 10:30 AM.

 

The next GRRR race is on Sunday, August 25, where we will be racing stock cars and Can-Am.

I'll be out of the country during the race, but I might try to make a day of going over and getting some practice laps there. Sounds like a good time.

Putting several Can-Am cars together for Saturday's practice session at South Daytona. I built one car specifically with South Daytona in mind.

The question is: How many Can-Am cars do I need to beat Tony?

This is really strange. I do not remember making those 2 posts above, #8 and #9. I was not up at 6am. Go figure.

For those that need some practice for this Sunday’s race, the track will be in road course configuration on Saturday. Sunday we will start with CanAm and switch the track over to oval, which takes 15 minutes.

Both tracks are fun to drive and the road course is not as hard to drive as it looks, even I can get around competively.

It was a fun day of practice. The stock cars were crazy loose through the tri-oval area. There is going to be a lot of crashes on race day, It might take a tank to survive the stock car race.

8 rails of 062 wire sounds about right.
