Club Racing Tomorrow Sunday Sept 24, 2023

We will attempt to club race tomorrow despite the iffy weather forecast. Please meet at the track before 9:30am like usual.

If we cannot race, we will be unloading the PA and Computer from the van.  We will need a couple people to take some items home until the first indoor race.

Another Fun Club Day!
Thanks to everyone who made it out for our club race yesterday.  We had a good turnout again and lots of close racing.

Setup was crazy fast at about 18 minutes.  This gave us lots of practice time before racing began.

It was nice to see Shawn Z back racing after missing most of the summer season.  He got back up to speed very quickly.

Shoutout to Neil J and Paul Y for making the bump-ups to the TC Stock B-Main.  Both drivers had great race days!

Avery B would be the racer to beat in TC Stock all day, eventually TQing and taking the win in the main.  Dalyn S and Tom Y had really strong mains, moving forward multiple positions and making the podium.  Tom put down a couple of awesome clean passes in the main to grab 3rd overall.

Honourable mention to Adam B who started 3rd overall on the grid with some nice runs in qualifying.  Unfortunately his car fell off the pace in the middle of the main with some sort of battery issue.

Sean B and Dan L set personal bests in Nitro which was awesome to see.  And, of course Sean's motor would give up just after running its strongest laps.  Welcome to nitro!

Once again, Rob would be the quickest car in USGT briefly flirting with a 24 lap run in the main!


Final Summer Race is Sunday, Sept 24th
Our final summer club race is next Sunday, Sept 24th if weather allows.

Awesome Club Day!
Thanks to everyone who made it out for our club race yesterday.  We had a pretty big turnout, especially this late in the season.  We enjoyed lots of good racing, and an IROCC first in one of the mains:

First, big thank-you to Dan L and Adam B for filling in for Craig R, getting the van to the track, and doing the sugar spray.  Craig always handles this stuff without complaint, so it's nice to have some other options while he's on racing vacation.

The TC Stock A-Main was an IROCC first.  Ryan Welch, Brian A, and Tom Y put on a great show for the entire five minutes, never separated by more than 10-20 feet.  They ran in qualifying order for the entire race, and on the last corner of the last lap Brian attempted a pass on Tiny entering the straight.  Tiny's car slipped a little which allowed Brian to get along side and they drag raced to the line.  It was hard to tell who won, and the computer didn't know either, declaring it a tie with both racers finishing with the exact same time!  Great finish!

Big shoutout to Samson Li for making the trip over from the Lower Mainland for his first race at IROCC.  Samson did really well in both TC Stock and USGT Scale Spec, making the B-Main in TC and finishing 2nd overall in USGT!

Jack F and Shawn L did really well this week with some very close battles throughout the day.  It must have been the Italian paint scheme on Jack's car....  Keep it up guys!

It was awesome to see Sue L back racing again after a 10+ year hiatus.  She improved each and every run which was awesome to see.  Good on Dan L for maintaining a full family fleet of cars!

Finally, congrats to Carter H for taking the win in Nitro TC, surviving a busy nine car field!  All nitro drivers did really well given the busy track.

Next Race is Sunday, Sept 17th

I'm expecting Novice is intended to be a TC chassis?

Yes although novices can run in the 12th Scale class as well.  They will be pre-sorted into an appropriate heat.

Fun Club Day!
Thanks to everyone who made it out for our club race yesterday.  We had a smaller turnout which meant for a more laid back race schedule which was nice.  We enjoyed some extra practice and then some good racing across the board.

Setup and teardown were both very dialed, especially given the lower body count.  Thanks everyone for working together efficiently.

Big shoutout to Chris B for some strong performances in TC Stock and USGT.  Lately he has been recording his heats with his phone and reviewing the video to find troublesome areas, and it's definitely paying off!  Chris took a clear win in the USGT main and also finished 3rd in the TC Stock B-Main.  Great work Chris!

Corey H also had a nice day, running strong in USGT all afternoon, and also making the bump to the A-Main in TC Stock.

Adam B ran really well all day, slowly sneaking up on the TC Stock podium level.  He also held an impromptu setup and driving strategy session for interested club members over lunch which was a great idea!

The Nitro TC main was exciting with both Craig R and Dalyn S fighting nose to tail most of the race.  Both attempted to make the seven minutes on a single tank of fuel, but the battling seemed to draw a little too much from the tank and they both coasted to rest a few seconds early.

Finally, in Formula 1, Jay J took the win in a thrilling finish at the line just narrowly ahead of Adam.


Next Race is Sunday, Sept 10th
We are NOT racing next Sunday Sept 3rd.  Our next race is Sunday Sept 10th.
