View Full Version : Demo racing at our Village's Picnic and Car Show

2011.07.12, 11:12 AM
The park district asked if we could host racing at the annual village car show and picnic. Overall it went well with heat being the biggest issue to deal with. Lots of sun and 90+ degree weather.

We did one simple layout and winners raced in a "Feature" race which was the HFAY layout and an 8 minute race.

Extra special thanks to our club members that came out to help me run the event. As always, way more work then I could have expected so they helping in swapping batteries and answering questions about the cars and club. Overall we had 84 racers and the only broken parts were a rear wheel and 2 steering knuckles.
