Still, there are some time constraints for members later in the day, so well be starting these shindigs earlier than we used to. Track setups starts at 10am.

Remember the Hall allows food but they want you to buy drinks on-site.

:cool: Hey Dustyweasel we have access to the clubhouse this week-end if you want to GTG. Andrea is renting it for a double birthday party, but that we should have access to it. I'll let you know what the schedule of the party is as soon as i find out. If anything i'll have my track there and it can be just for track tuning if anybody wanted to show up and run some laps.

Cool. Saturday or Sunday? Let met know what time, Ill make it by if I can with the CORE system. I really need the track time for testing after my tire debacle in the 100 Lap Sprint.

Unfortunately theres a strong chance Ill be working through the weekend. Even if I do manage to get caught up at work, I have outside-of-work work I got volunteered for that I also have to catch up on. So tired. So very tired.

But Ill make it if I can.

The weather has turned perfect making evap-cooler locations viable, so this week DJ has offered the use of his Porsche Garage to hold our races. Its clean and cool with plenty of floor space, and there are plenty of really cool 1:1 cars too.

Park out front or behind the fence. With so many drivers showing up lately pit space could get tight, so if someone has a folding table or two please bring them.

Ive rearranged the schedule a bit to better accommodate practice time. Well do the usual 30min practice for the first race, but then do the HFAY runs immediately after. That way we get warm-up time and the HFAY runs get us even more practice. This also affords more time for lunch and tuning as drivers wait their turn.

Well use the HFAY results as Qualifying for the Clockwise race. The Counterclockwise race will proceed as usual, and the formal racing wraps up by 3pm also as per normal.

Switching back to the usual routine, we are running the OLPS as the first race of the month again. Joe has moved into a new apartment complex and well be giving his new clubhouse a try.

Enter the main gate at Remington Place Apartments and turn left. Park against the North wall just past the office/rec room on the right.

As before with this new schedule, well use the HFAY results as Qualifying for the Clockwise race. The Counterclockwise race will proceed as usual, and the formal racing wraps up by 3pm also as per normal.

DW, your results posted above may have changed slightly. I forgot to bump those that finished below me up 1 point. I'm DQ'ed for testing purposes, and adjusted the points to reflect that. :o

Hood, you're making me nervous. You're laps are always very comparable to mine...You and I will have to have a showdown when I hop a plane to AZ this winter..I'll look forward to racing with you, DW & the whole AZ crew...Until then good luck the rest of this season.

Hood

I have been watching the times of everyone that is above me and the people that finished at the top last year. You are definately on that list, and I look forward to getting to race against you..

Our club is getting faster, and it is getting harder to stay in the A heat.. We had a new racer yesterday, and he should put Mini-AZ up on the list higher than I have been able to..

Let us know when you are coming, we can schedule a practice day in my garage or something.. In January we plan on running the largest RCP track that you have ever seen..

Hi Will! We look forward to racing with you again, and Fast Turtle if hed like to.

Here are some pictures from the November OLPS event. It was held in the spacious, comfortable, and well lit clubhouse at Joes new apartment.

:( Too bad i missed being there for the races. Looks like a lot fun happened there. It also looks well lit compared to alot of the places we've raced at. Alos nice to see that Hood's and Joe's cars got some color added to distinguish them apart. :cool: We could also rent the clubhouse here at my apartments for the HFAY/OLPS races and i've already asked and all of the people here have been trained on how to rent the clubhouse and it should prove much easier now if we need to. We could also run some bigger tracks on it, but not quite the monster layouts we're used to of late.

Should have no problem getting to the next event next saturday so hopefully everyone can be there. Soory for not showin, but other commitments had to be met. If we could of switched to Sunday i could of been there, but then others might not of been able to make it. So in the end it was easier for me to miss it then to ask every one else to adjust their schedules.

Keep your clubhouse in mind Saiyan, that may be a good option when things start heating up early next year. We can only race at DJs garage until the evap cooler is overwhelmed and can only reserve Joes clubhouse once per month.

How much is the rent on your clubhouse?

(BTW, you forgot your charger. Joe has it).

Its down to the last race in the On-Line Points Series season II. Well be racing again at the very nice clubhouse facility at Joes apartment. It has plenty of room, comfortable appointments, and excellent lighting.

Enter the main gate at Remington Place Apartments and turn left. Park against the North wall just past the office/rec room on the right.

As before with this new schedule, well use the HFAY results as Qualifying for the Clockwise race. The Counterclockwise race will proceed as usual, and the formal racing wraps up by 3pm also as per normal.

Weve been a little lax on the schedule lately which puts time pressure on some drivers, so this week well be sticking closely to the scheduled event times.

The November OLPS results are in. The driver roster has grown to 111 drivers scoring points from around the globe! Our new member, Brad, has been driving at the front and it showed with a 4th place finish (from a field of 67!) in Race #10. Just one lap down from the leader! Hood also broke into the Top 10 with a 9th place finish in Race #9.

Our local standings have shuffled around a bit, and theres a close battle for position among several drivers going into the final race of the season.

JOE KROSNER

due to timing concearns of getting the new motors available we have pushed them to Season 4. We are sticking with the same motor regulations for HFAY for Season 3. The 3010 Fets will also be allowed this season.

*** And the Final Standings of Season II ***

December saw the final race of Season II and a great season for Mini-AZ. Two of our drivers repeatedly broke into the top ten and others often scored high.

Joe, at the very last you managed to edge me out. But if it weren't for the two drop races, we would have been tied!

A great job drivers, and a big thanks to all the competitors who participated in this world-wide series. It was a lot of fun.

But don't get too comfortable sitting in those final points positions, Season III starts tomorrow!
