Fun Club Race!
Thanks to everyone who made it out for racing on Saturday.  Setup and teardown were very smooth.  We had a lighter turnout which made for a more laid-back schedule and some extra practice.

Shoutout to Dominic M in the Novice main for running his best run in his short career.  Dominic ran super clean and managed to turn 18 laps which was very impressive!

Ryan P was back for his first race with his own car and did really well.  He just concentrated on clean laps and it paid off with some really good runs.

Carter H, Glenn A, and Sean B had some good battles in 12th Scale throughout the night.  Carter and Sean were turning slightly faster laps but Glenn's consistency gave him the edge every time.

Congrats to Dan L for hitting 37 laps for the first time.  His 12th Scale game definitely took a jump forward that night.

Big thanks to Tom Y for helping Emmett Y get one of the loaner cars sorted out between heats.  Much appreciated.

Hard luck award goes to Nick F for breaking out of both mains.  He will take solace in his Super Bowl winnings though.

Next Race is Saturday Feb 24
The next race is Saturday Feb 24.  Doors open at 4:00PM.  We will run a full race program with three qualifiers followed by the mains.

Big Race Night!
Thanks to everyone who made it out for racing on Saturday.  We had a big turnout and a few new racers which was great to see.  The larger turnout caused us to run a little late but we'll get that cleaned up next time.

Big thank you to Ryan W and Nospoom S for joining us from Metro Vancouver for the night.  It's always fun to race with these guys!

Shoutout to Craig R and Dan L for getting Jes M back on track after a small ESC fire.  Jes' night would otherwise have been over if it had not been for these guys making the effort.

Ryan Patterson ran the club car for his first IROCC club race since the 80s/90s era.  He did really well out there with the fragile loaner, especially given his time away from RC!

Dayn H and Bob M entered the 12th Scale class for their first time and both of them ran very quick and clean.  Ultimately they would both finish in the middle of the B-Main which was impressive!

Brodie B had a great night, improving each round with his 12th Scale car.  He hit 26 laps in the C-Main which was a record.  Nice work Brodie!

At the top of 12th Scale, Dalyn S was a beast with one of the fastest and most consistent qualifiers we've seen in recent memory.  See the attached picture as a model of consistent lap times, especially in 1S where the battery fade is against you.  Note that this run was about two seconds slower than Craig R's run from a couple weeks ago, but I can tell Dalyn's Top 5/10/15 numbers are a club record without even checking the database.

Thank you to Sean B and Tom Y for running the computer for much of the night; it is a thankless volunteer position.

Next Race is Saturday Feb 10
Doors open at 4:00PM.  We will run a full race program with three qualifiers followed by the mains.

Fun Race Night!
Thanks to everyone who attended Saturday's club race.  We had a good turnout and lots of good racing.  Once again we had a big turnout of newer onroad racers including Dayn Hoel and Jes Mattheisen from COR Victoria.  These two ran some loaner cars and did super well for their first ever onroad event!  Big thanks to Rob F for supplying the extra loaner.

The first TC main saw Jes and Emmett Y breaking away from the field.  Unfortunately Emmett's car suffered a broken arm later in the run and Colton W would move into the second bump spot.

The next TC main was a three way race within the Fantetti family.  Joe worked his way to the front but traffic was unkind to him and Austen would end up taking the win with Jack in tow.

Rob F got a little unlucky while leading the TC B-Main and ended up breaking his car which allowed Shawn Z and Phil C to secure bump ups to the A-Main.  Good run there from both these guys, and Shawn ended up 4th overall in the A-Main with an extremely slow car which was impressive!

In 12th Scale, Sean B and Paul Y were the most consistent in the B-Main and would transfer to the A-Main.  Shout out to Paul for handling himself well in the A group.  It's tough to focus on your own lines when you've got several faster cars working past you throughout the race.  Paul stayed clean which was awesome.

The 12th Scale A-Main featured a good race between Blake B and Craig R, swapping back and forth for the lead multiple times, and never being more than about six feet apart from each other.  Fun racing for sure.

Teardown was deadly fast and efficient again which got us out the door and to dinner a little early.  Thanks everyone for that.

Next Race is Saturday Jan 27, 2024
Doors open at 4:00PM.  We will run a full race program with three qualifiers followed by the mains.

Big Race Night for Novices!
Thanks to everyone who attended Saturday's club race.  We had a good turnout and lots of good racing.  The Novice heat stole the show with some excellent driving from all our new racers.

The highlight of the night was probably onroad rookie Bob Magyar making a clean last corner pass on Mark Lester in the first race of the night.  Great finish in that one.

The other rookies, Colton W, Emmett Y, Ian H, and Shaun W all ran super well all night, steadily improving their times.  Really awesome to see.

Our "pro-novices", Avelyn W, Cameron H, Dominic M, and Matthew C were all escalated up a heat on this night and were more than up for the task.  It won't be long until we see one of these racers in the B-Main.

Further up the ranks we saw a good battle between brothers Joe F and Jack F in the B-Main which was fun to watch.  And Shawn Z had a great night, eventually ending up in the TC A-Main which was great to see.

Teardown must have been some sort of record.  Brian B and Martin M had the pack up system working at max efficiency.  Great work there.

*** For those that saw the incident near the end of the night: This is currently under review.  All club members will be updated at a driver's meeting at the next race.

Next Race is Saturday Jan 13, 2024
Doors open at 4:00PM.  We will run a full race program with three qualifiers followed by the mains.
