July 16th Race in Holly Springs, NC

Hey all, if anyones interested I'm hosting another mini-z race at my place July 16th 2016 in Holly Springs, NC (south of Raleigh). We値l use July 23rd as a backup day if rain and/or High Heat is a problem. Practice 1 PM with Racing starting about 3 PM.

We had a decent turn out last time and raced all the way up to about 8 PM or so, hopefully we値l get more and more as time goes on. I've got Three mini-96 tracks with One expansion pack, so if weather holds out we'll run it out the garage and have a large track setup, we値l be using kyosho IC Tag timing system with Flip Side Racing. Likely we値l do a Points for Position style of racing. We値l run a Stock and Modified class which I値l provide more details on if anyone is interested. Unlimited class in case someone wants to run AWD, brushless, or something out of the norm.

NO FEES! Just running for fun to try and get interest going more in the community around the Triangle area.

Anyone interested PM me and we'll connect on the Face social media network so I can send you an invite.

There's also a hobby shop in Wake Forest that's going mobile and hopefully sometime soon can host Mini-z races at various locations around the Triangle area, so watch for Hi Tech Hobbies and if interest gets big enough they'll start stocking more parts/cars. They have two mini-96 tracks and expansion back and kyosho IC tag system as well.

Thanks everyone!
Brian

Attached is the layout for this Saturday's race (July 16th 2016). Wanted to post in case anyone's interested in coming and want to pre-setup for a relatively fast track.

Remember, PM me if you want details, directions, etc.

We're going to try and hold it even if the temps are hot, only thing that might dampen (pun intended) is if we get a lot of rain, may have to just trim it down to a smaller size or worst case postpone to 23rd...i'll make the postpone call by Friday evening.

wow, long track! inner split straight could be an interesting passing point if someone has the power/speed to do it. will certainly make the hole shot an interesting affair of traffic slits up

I like the split. Haven't done that in any of my layouts. Might have to include at future shows.
