Tony, I have not been to P1 raceway yet. I think I will show up and have all my new controller pieces to display. What do they have for tracks?

A search of Google Maps for P1 Slot Cars Raceway shows the building that P1 is in, but it doesn't say that P1 is unit #114, which is the NW corner unit of the building.
 
The Google Street View car drove around the building.

Eddie:

It's just the camera lens that's making it look weird, the donut/lead-on is no big deal and drives just fine, as does the rest of the track.  The fact that there is no cross-over makes the lane length quite a bit different from Red (the longest) to Black.  You do have to get use to the fact that you just can't try to "race" the guys on the lower lanes when you are on the upper ones.

For those that may not know Marty he was the first person to welcome me to Florida and volunteered to help me setup retro racing down here. Worked his *** off to insure retro got off to a good start. Great guy.

Marty introduced me to retro cars.
He gave me a few to get me started.

He truly loved all forms of slot car racing.

He helped start and run the FCR series back in the day as well.

He thought outside the box. Just not with building chassis but motors as well. Really anything slot car related.

I would pick his brain often.

He was super nice guy with a great sense of humor.

Marty is surely missed.

Practice this Sunday from 9 to 12:30.

I hear Danny was running in the 70's last week.Marcus was fast but unfortunately his body wasn’t legal. I’m sure he’ll be just as fast with a legal one. Always looking for an advantage. Lol.

See you guys Sunday.

Some changes for this season.

We won’t have moveups. We are going to run either round robin or a & b mains with total laps counting for overall depending on race entries and Marshall availability. This should save some time on race day as we run three classes.

Track calls will be defined before the race with an effort to minimize them as they are an issue with a lot of racers because there are too many called by the same guys. For example 2 cars off in a corner is not a track call.

The only repairs allowed by Marshall’s is to fix screwed up braid and un pop caved in bodies. The rest the driver must do on his own time.


Also the biggest change is
Danny Zona will be penalized 4 laps per main at he start of the season and must run his car @130 grams, with further adjustments made if needed.

See everyone Sunday!.

I'm sure he will just unwind his arms a few more turns to make up for the additional weight and lap penalty.

I'm to lazy for all of that work.

It's way easier for me to buy Lucky Bucky speed rubber fresh cuts. 😉

Between that speed rubber and the special laser engraving you've been doing I think you're a good enough driver to make up those 4 laps.
