Hey, unfortunately Maya and I will be unable to attend on that day due to a schedule conflict. We have a team registered in the 2010 virginia beach sand soccer championships that weekend.

I really wish I could have made this event.

Mike,
June 12th would be great and your work is a great spot, not too far a drive for me. If you make it this date, I will certainly be there. Other dates in June are more difficult for me.
thanks
rene.

I'll have to work out closer to that day whether I can make it or not...any other Saturday that month would have been a 'yes'.

It looks like we have all the track except the long inside turns. That is all we need you to bring. Thanks Ed. See you on the 12th.

We are running stock but it is anything goes as long as it is a 70 turn for all of the races except the HFAY races. For those races it has to be out of the pack stock with no mods. I always run the plain stock motor.

We run Monday and Thursday evenings opening up around 5 until 9 or 10. Then we run Saturdays opening up at about 2 and ending about the same time. Monday is the day that gets the most racers.


We run on RCP foam.

There is no fee to race. If you want to donate something to help out it is welcome but never asked for. We have A/C for the summer and propane heat in the winter. We run in a 4 bay garage with a porta john outside.


For the most part we don't run full out races, again except for the HFAY races. We do run many qualifiers though. We will just get everyone to put fresh batteries in the cars and run a 5 min qualifier and after it everyone will look at the computer to see how they did and do it a few more times before we all need a fresh battery change. I would bet that we run about 20 qualifiers through out the day. It is very relaxed and we have a lot of fun.

If you want you can shoot me a PM and I can send you my cell number if you want to chat about our racing. Hope to see you soon. MK

I will be at my work at 8:00 and we should have the track up by 10. We can practice till around noon, get some lunch and then start qualifing after lunch.

When you get to the building let the guards know that you are there for the R/C car race and meet us on the 9th floor. Hope to see you there tomorrow. MK
