Next GTG September 19, 2006 - 6 pm

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 ).

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.

The Place
243-B McIntire Rd
Charlottesville, VA
(Next to Staples)

I'll try to take a few pictures this time...

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

Track layouts

I was checking out the Salt Lake Mini-Z webpage 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.



I should have some pictures up tomorrow or Wednesday.

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

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

The bug got its own shot...

here's what the starting graid actually looked like...

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 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.
