We are running the third installment of the new ISRL series on March 25th... 10am - 6pmish? Qualifying will start by noon, Mains will start around 3pm. I want to get us all as much track time as possible, we shouldn't have too many distractions this time. I think everyone that could have visited, did visit last time! :rolleyes:

Here's the layout for the third race:

Maybe we'll get to avoid the pole this time around but I know my pit area may be re-arranged for this one.

Here's the results once again, I know we can do better... we're either that out of practice or just having too much fun bashing and trash talking during the races. ;)

Here's the basics from Dusty's thread:

80 Minutes du Mans
A multi-class Le Mans style sports car and prototype race.
Each race is 8min for a total of 80min run in a season.
Classes all run and scored together. Positions are for Overall, Class, and Club Championships.
LMP class: 102mm+ prototype cars. Open motor. Plastic or Lexan. Lots of modification available and encouraged. 150g min (w/o batts)
GTS class: 98mm- sports cars. 70t+ motor. Plastic bodies. Some modification available. 125g min (w/o batts)

Formula Mini World Championship
Stock class F1 cars running 70t+ motors. Some modification available. 150g min (w/o batts)

Oh, and no race videos from last month, but Quinn did get to test out his new on-car micro-cam:

I'm a zombie until 9am... no prob if you want to show then. I know I'm going to try to get tuned the night before, my 599 is so close to where I want it to be but it still just seems a little too twitchy.

It looks like "Y'all" won't fit in it. Let me see. Racing road trip. Do I take a change of clothes or my racing gear? If I leave Fawlty Towers behind I might get a pair of socks and some skivvies in.

2012.03.20, 03:17 PM
Wish I could Landon but my current workload is ridiculous. At least they allow me to go home and sleep once in a while! :rolleyes:

So, a 2012 Rav4 huh?... didn't realize you were envious of my 97!

Tell you what...the Rav is bigger than you think in the back (minus a full load of people;)).

lfisminiz
2012.03.20, 09:19 PM
ED...always liked the Rav and had one many years ago.:rolleyes:

Landon...doesnt look good but not for sure yet.

Quinn....she doesnt need that many days to recover.;):p:D

hilldebrandt

Guys, I won't make it either. I've been feeling ill all day and will be resting tomorrow...see ya'll next month.

lfisminiz

2012.03.25, 09:51 PM
ED...good talking/tune time. The new layout is really good. Maybe we will have more people next time.:rolleyes:;):D

2012.03.25, 09:52 PM
It was just me and Larry today, tuning everything. I think our series is blown though. Kinda figured this would happen but it's cool... we'll still be racing once a month. We set the track up full basement and had some good runs, the layout is real good both directions too so we can get some PN regional skills in going counter clockwise.

sorry couldnt make it...ill be there next time.

also my basement flooded and got my track soaking wet.

imxlr8ed
2012.03.31, 12:11 AM
So which Sunday in April? Let me know guys. If you guys want to run with ISRL still or you all just want to go back to full basement, you guys decide. I just want to race and if you guys are happy running without a series, I'm cool with it.

I may experiment a bit more with the current layout... But for now it works real well.

lfisminiz
2012.03.31, 01:41 PM

As far as us racing, i think you know where i stand after the last GTG.;):p
