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 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
