tear inducing conflicts...

anyone from northern va, md going friday night/saturday please email me.

long story short, work requires me to be on site at restricted access facility friday night and saturday. i'm hoping to avoid absolutely crushing brandon with the news that he won't be able to go saturday. he's been talking about this for the last couple weeks and has already packed a bag. i won't be able to get down there till saturday night/sunday morning depending on when work finishes up saturday.

i was absolutely heartbroken when i got the news as this trip is one of the big things i get to do with brandon every year and something we both very much look forward to as a father/son trip/experience. being the only income generator requires me to not miss work however.

We want you to know Ray, that while were sad that you can't be here racing and enjoying the convention, we certainly wouldn't want you to go out of your way on Sunday on our behalf. The room the track in is only open from 10am to 3pm on sunday. Things end sort of early on that day.

The attendance for the pro event is nothing compared to last year. This isn't unexpected on short notice but we do have sponsorship from Reflex Racing just the same for the die-hard racers that do make it. They sent some really nice stuff and as usual were very thankful to them for supporting the event. We hope next year many racers will be able to make it and remain hopeful for some Reflex Racing members to make the race as well. Another big thanks to reflex racing for the continued support!

Amateur track attendance remained strong, however, our AM cars didn't fare as well this year as I already have one with a blown FET and another with a destroyed rearend. I'll try to get the cars up and running tomorrow for some more AMs but board repairs are a little more time consuming then simple part replacements. Igor (Skv) did a great job in gaining interest in our AM event, While Maya and I spoke with attendees about the cars and let them have a shot at driving them.

People were very enthusiastic about the track and many expressed interest in racing Mini-Z with local clubs etc.

As far as the track, here it is! There is also a wide L for amateurs to race on.

Great race, great con, was a pleasure meeting soundwave and action B among others, and I'll post pix and videos later today or at the latest tomorrow.

big thanks to reflex racing for providing the driver prizes! walked away with a wtfv2!

thank you expecially to brandon and maya for taking the reins and making due with what was left of the event. i know it's a lot to take on while also participating. i really enjoyed sunday and the trip was well worth it.

we had even more space this year that last! the track layout was very techincal while still having a good flow to it. once you got the rythm down it was a lot of fun.

next year i will make sure to take the time off in advance so i can spend more time at nekocon.

I'd like to thank everyone for coming that could attend and Reflex Racing for the great prizes. Reflex Racing has been very generous with sponsorship. So to the racers and reflex racing, thanks for helping us in our goal of growing the hobby. This has always been the point of the Nekocon racing events. There were a lot of interested attendees, all of which were pointing in the direction of this website and reflex racings website to get started. It was nice to see so many people from last year returning and still interested. I gave contact information out to several people and expect that some of them, may be racing alongside of us at next years bigger and better Nekocon.

One attendee insisted on getting involved and helped run the lapcounter software for most of the qualifying and Mains (two different days). Another has already ordered a Z after seeing us last year. The winner of last years event returned to run on the track with us. The list goes on and on. Were making a difference here and inducing interest into many others at these events!

Skv012a- Good racing even though you didn't have your Mars, bring it next time I'd like to race you when were both at our best.

VaZracer- Thanks for coming and dominating us. If nothing else it let me know how much further I can bring my hobby. I see an MR-02 in my future after driving yours. You let me see how much more there was to the hobby I haven't even touched on yet. This is what makes Mini-Zs so exciting to race.

arch2b- I'm glad you could make it on sunday. We have some big plans for next year. I'm sure we can see them through together. Your son seems to have improved from last year.

Soundwave raced well and no one left empty handed thanks to Reflex Racing. Overall, a smaller event than last year but no less memorable.
