Club Race Attendance Record!
Thanks to all the local and travelling racers who joined us today!  We had the best turnout we've seen in several years!

Track Setup/Teardown
Thank you to everyone for helping with track setup and teardown.  These are not fun jobs but we've been doing great work with 30 min setups and 15 min teardowns.  Today we were missing a couple of our key track personnel which impacted the smoothness of teardown.  Shawn Z has volunteered to help teach our newer club members the teardown process and order of operation.  With him, Brian A, and Paul G coordinating things it will go a little smoother next week.

Next Race is this Sunday, July 26
We're racing again this Sunday July 26.  We will NOT be racing the following weekend (BC Day long weekend) so come out and get your fix this Sunday.

Another Solid Club Race!
Thanks to all the local racers, up-island racers, and Lower Mainland racers who joined us for some great racing last Sunday!  Track setup was insanely good at 28 mins, and teardown was ridiculous at 12 mins.  Let's keep up those great stats.

Next Race Day is Aug 9th
We're taking the BC Day long weekend off, so we'll see everyone in two weeks on Sunday August 9th.

Full Size Vehicles In The Pit Area
As per the driver's meeting last Sunday, we need to improve our physical distancing in the pit area.  Unless you absolutely need your full size vehicle in the pit, please park it in the lower lot.  There are a few generators in the pits for power, so don't be shy to ask someone for power.


Thanks,
Blake

Club racing this Sunday August 9, 2020

We are expecting guests from the lower mainland to join us for racing.  GripworksRC will be onsite as well, so bring along some cash.

Track setup will begin at 9:30am.  All racers are expected to help with track setup.

*** Reminder to park your full-size vehicle in the lower lot to allow more space in the pit area.

See you there!

Record Setting Club Race!
Thanks to all the guest racers who joined us once again for some great racing today!  We broke an attendance record again which is amazing to see!

Tuesday Night - Car Setup Clinic
We're hosting a short car setup clinic from 7:00pm to 8:30pm this Tuesday August 11th at the parking lot.  We'll have some setup stations on hand to get everyone's cars squared up and ready for next weekend.  The clinic is open to all racers, new and old.  We'll also answer any setup questions racers may have.

Next Race Day is August 16
We're racing again this coming Sunday, August 16th.  Reminder that we'll be running two offroad classes: Buggies and Trucks.

Thanks,
Blake

yeah, got to say that turnout was insane. Good to see all the new racers out having a good time after a few slow years.

To the new and returning racers,

Thanks a ton for coming out to race with us. I can't tell you how awesome it was to see soo many of you in the pits and the track (2M apart) showing interest and support for the club. I hope you guys continue to enjoy racing and can't wait for you to experience a Speed Weekend event when covid-19 slows down.

DR. Speed would be proud of you.

Hot Race Day!
Thanks to all the local racers and traveling racers for joining us for another great club race!  Track setup was next-level at 20 mins flat - even in 30C temps.  The TC Stock main was one of the best we've seen yet.  Congrats to Adam for TQing and Avery for taking the win!

Thank you to the volunteer marshals in the Nitro main - it was very much appreciated.

We're racing again this Sunday August 23rd.
