***Jaunuary OLPS Schedule***

Sorry this is going up so late, I got a drive crash for Christmas.

The new OLPS Season III starts this Saturday the 6th with new tracks and the addition of 3010 FET cars! Mini-AZ poked into the top ten several times last season and we have a few drivers that could really go for the win.

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.

Good luck to you guys this season. I'd also like to congratulate Hood on moving past me with one event left in the season. Good racing man. Hope to see you guys somtime in March.

Not only are you racing against your local group, but you can compare to someone that lives on the other side of the world or the country.. I really had some good runs at the end of the season, but I still ended up one spot short of my goal. Will and I have been running very close times at all of the events and it will be great to have him here in person for a race or two.. It should be very different than last year..

How long do you stay when you come?

We had 11 cars for the Jan HFAY, this is a new record.. In three weeks we will be running the hour long AZGT final at SpeedWorld on a very big track.. I am pretty sure that we are gonna have over 12 drivers, and have to do something to rewrite some rules for the additional people. Maybe, two qualifying runs to start with since all cars can't run together. Then, a B main with maybe less laps, with a chance to bump-up into the A.. B Main drivers get to start the A with fresh batteries, just some things to think about..

I didn't run great in January, trying out a new motor.. So, I will look forward to seeing the list of drivers that I need to beat this season.. I will still be in first for Mini-AZ, but Brad, Joe, Bill, Sean, and Dusty have all beaten me at one time during the last season. It has really been great racing lately and with more talent the races promise to be better and better..

Mini-AZ had a great turnout for the beginning of the OLPS Season III. We had a field of 11 drivers, and it would have been 12 but for a household appliance emergency. Sorry you couldn't make it DJ.

Well, I can't post our results yet, so enjoy some photos. Also below is a video file, the black box recording of a little incident Brad suffered during one race. We weren't quite sure what happened, but the video tells the tale...

I believe the video clearly shows that I was the only one to miss him.. Crashing while in the lead like that is clearly bad form, Strike One.
Getting hit by Joe, Strike Two.
Getting hit by Bill, Strike Three.

I guess he was out!

It's hard to say how good a start Mini-AZ is off to in the Season III OLPS until we see the results from the other clubs, but I'm confident we have several drivers near the top of the standings. With eleven drivers participating last time, it was a great time, and I hope we can see all of them as regulars.

As always for the short track, well be racing 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.

Well use the HFAY results as Qualifying for the Clockwise race. The Counterclockwise Qualifying will use the 5 lap solo run, and the formal racing wraps up by 3pm.

The 17th is currently slotted as on off-week for us, but we'll arrange something. I can't say exactly yet until I know the member schedules (as the club grows, it gets tricky).

Are you scheduled to run the OLPS in AA? If not maybe we can bump our running to the 17th. Will you be here during the day, or evening like last time?

A LHS nearby holds informal parking lot racing for all scales/classes on Saturday nights from around 7-10pm if you have something larger you'd like to run there too.

CONGRATULATIONS MINI-AZ!!!

What an outstanding performance right out of the gate for the new season! We grabbed three top-tens in both races and even a win!

We also have three drivers in the top-ten of the point standings. Keep up this performance and there's a good chance the season champion will come from the Great State of Arizona.

There's still ten more races to go though, so keep up the good work and I hope to see you all again on Saturday the 10th for Race #3 & 4.

Outstanding job again in February, Mini-AZ!!!

Brad has risen to 2nd Place overall, only 13 points behind the series leader! Hood and Joe remain in the Top Ten with Bill knocking on the door.

This is garage practice and teamwork paying off. Well done everyone.

Coordinating schedules for these two months has proven rather tricky. The March OLPS will be held on March 31st. The last possible moment, so we can't miss this date.

The April OLPS will be held the following weekend on April 7th, so back-to-back weekends.

With so many drivers being out of town, this will be our only official race in April. There is a sort of Demo-Day planned for the evening of the 21st at Speed Sports along with their 1:10 scale activities. Info about this to follow in a new thread.

*** Due to constant issues with CORE glitching, we will be switching to AMB scoring as of March 31st. If you own an AMB transponder please bring it. We will try and have some loners available for those that don't. ***

Can't wait............three weeks of racing in a row. Staring with 5 days in Houston for the Speedline Gran Prix for some 1/8th scale followed by back to back weeks of OLPS or HFAY racing Mini-Z style. Lets represent AZ in style!!

Wow after three months I have finally been able to post on this forum!!!!!!!!!!

I will have the track design done for the next AZ GT when I get back from Texas. It will have two keyhole sections as well as a three tile wide straight for Joe and no 45 degree section either.

Congratulations Brad for grabbing the top spot. He battled back from adversity in the first race to achieve 97 laps in the second race. 97!!! Early on he was setting a 99 lap pace but tagged the wall a few times. I wish I had been rolling video instead of marshaling, because with steely-eyed determination he rallied back with a series of perfect laps that were pure magic.

Mini-AZ is on a mission now, the 100 lap barrier can be broken. Which club will do it first?

I think the Never-Say-DNF award goes to Hood though. A series of problems culminated in throwing a tire with about a minute to go, but he soldiered on... on three wheels... and still finished only one lap behind me. Clearly my problem is I have too many wheels.

We used double 8min Qualifiers this time instead of solo laps. The order was hotly contested with no quarter asked or given, but in the Mains, when it really counted, I saw teamwork and sporting courtesy. The results show in the points.

Well done everyone, and I'll see you all on April 7th for the next OLPS.

(Look at the top three grouping in Race #5, now that was an exciting finish)

We're coming down to the final races of Season III and Mini-AZ is doing well. Brad even grabbed the top spot in March.

We continue the charge on Saturday, May 12th. This time we have a special guest joining us. ByeBye (and I think family SheShe and Drew) will be passing through Phoenix and will stop by to score their points.

I raced with ByeBye, SheShe, and Drew when my wife and I were touring England last year (in May in fact). The Stafford racers showed us a great time and had a large turnout for us, so let's return the hospitality with some fun racing at Mini-AZ.

Sorry this is so last minute, but the June OLPS will be this Saturday the 2nd.

This is the final race of season IV and Mini-AZ has placed well so far. But based on the April points its a tight battle between 1st and 2nd place, separated by only 2 points!

Let's see if we can bring that trophy home to Arizona. See 'ya all Saturday.

Change of plans. It turns out the Clubhouse is not available on the 2nd, and DJs is not available until the 16th. The 9th and 23rd are travel days for some.

My plan was to take advantage of the Saturday lineup in June and squeeze in three race days. Oh well, with all the busy schedules, and Im working 12hr days, its probably best to not squeeze in so much anyway.

So, lets try for the OLPS on the 16th at Joes and the AZGT on the 30th at DJs. Ill update here again once Joe has confirmed the clubhouse reservations.

Ok, little schedule snafu there. It would have been awfully short notice anyway.

The room is now reserved for the OLPS on Saturday the 16th for the final race of season III. Hope to see you all there.

Wow! Great results guys. And we broke the 100 lap barrier! We were really on our game last month, particularly in the CCW race locking up the top five spots. Practice and team work guys, practice and teamwork paying off.

Now we are down to the final race of Season III. Brad and OnRailz are tied for the Championship. The next track is a tough one, requiring perfect timing through the 180's and laser-like precision through the chicane and out to the fast straight without pushing into the wall.

I hope everyone got plenty of practice in. So let's bring that Championship title home to Phoenix!

See 'ya all on the 16th.

Mini-AZ brings home the top spot in the Driver's Championship! Congratulations Brad! And congratulations Hood, Joe, Bill (and even me!) for hanging onto the Top Ten! And congratulations to OnRailz, Spoon, HobbyCar, Ringer, and Mini-Z for a hard fought battle for that top bracket. Well done all.

That was a terrific season, with new and challenging layouts, and tougher than ever competition from the Top Ten on down the line. We had great fun competing with all of you in your various parts of the world and look forward to going even faster in Season IV.

Mini-AZ was only able to capture the runner up spot in the Club Championship, but against some solid performing clubs that is certainly an achievement to be proud of. This is the result of teamwork and encouragement to elevate each person in our group to be the best driver possible. Congratulations again to everyone at Mini-AZ to bring home this excellent result. And congratulations to DC GTG on capturing the title of Fastest Club in the World.
