This will be event number 2 for the C-ville Mini Speedway. We have a decent start with two Mini-Z owners! ( I am one of them :D ).

The shop where we are hosting the events seems really excited about having the races which is very good news. They are getting all of their ducks in a row with respect to setting up purchasing with Kyosho. I think they are an authorized dealer now.

If I could just suck in a few more racers, we could have a decent following in Charlottesville again.

Anyway, we will be getting setup around 5 and ready to race around 6.

Would I have to use a different name and car? I don't see anything in the rules about that one...

I was checking out the Salt Lake Mini-Z webpage (http://saltlakemini-z.com/index.html) because I knew they had a few track layouts already lined up for multiple Wide-L's.

If we have enough space I think we'll do number 12, if not we'll default to number 1.

That's cool...I didn't get a chance to stop in to the shop last week.

We had a great turnout this time...at least six people that actually own Mini-Z's and a couple more that were hooked on the demo cars. It gets a little rough out there with six cars on 33" lanes so I may have to limit myself to a CMS-specific car. My Xanavi 350Z took a little of a beating...

Here are a few pics, there are more in my CMS gallery (http://mini-zracer.com/mini-zgallery/showgallery.php?cat=943)

We were able to field a few cars for the style pic...

bn is referring to his little subaru Epoch sandwiched btwn the F1's. It held its own against the army of brutal Mini-Z's.

spoon,
if you want to borrow my epoch, i still have the lbrc shotgun parts to install. i just have not found the time to take it out of the box much less install the parts i bought.

very glad to see such a good turnout! even more than our dc gtg :eek: now if you could just get the shop to buy a timing system ;)

would anyone from your club be interested in the trip to norfolk i emailed everyone about?

I was just thinking about that trip the other day...I guess we should talk more about it this weekend. I have only been paying partial attention to the details. Once I get the specifics, I can spread the word.
