*** March OLPS Results ***

Congratulations Brad for grabbing the top spot. He battled back from adversity in the first race to achieve 97 laps in the second race. 97!!! Early on he was setting a 99 lap pace but tagged the wall a few times. I wish I had been rolling video instead of marshaling, because with steely-eyed determination he rallied back with a series of perfect laps that were pure magic.

Mini-AZ is on a mission now, the 100 lap barrier can be broken. Which club will do it first?

I think the Never-Say-DNF award goes to Hood though. A series of problems culminated in throwing a tire with about a minute to go, but he soldiered on... on three wheels... and still finished only one lap behind me. Clearly my problem is I have too many wheels.

We used double 8min Qualifiers this time instead of solo laps. The order was hotly contested with no quarter asked or given, but in the Mains, when it really counted, I saw teamwork and sporting courtesy. The results show in the points.

Well done everyone, and I'll see you all on April 7th for the next OLPS.

(Look at the top three grouping in Race #5, now that was an exciting finish)

***May OLPS Schedule***

We're coming down to the final races of Season III and Mini-AZ is doing well. Brad even grabbed the top spot in March.

We continue the charge on Saturday, May 12th. This time we have a special guest joining us. ByeBye (and I think family SheShe and Drew) will be passing through Phoenix and will stop by to score their points.

I raced with ByeBye, SheShe, and Drew when my wife and I were touring England last year (in May in fact). The Stafford racers showed us a great time and had a large turnout for us, so let's return the hospitality with some fun racing at Mini-AZ.

*** We are now scoring with the AMB system. If you own an AMB transponder please bring it. We will try and have some loners available for those that don't.***

Change of plans. It turns out the Clubhouse is not available on the 2nd, and DJís is not available until the 16th. The 9th and 23rd are travel days for some.

My plan was to take advantage of the Saturday lineup in June and squeeze in three race days. Oh well, with all the busy schedules, and Iím working 12hr days, itís probably best to not squeeze in so much anyway.

So, letís try for the OLPS on the 16th at Joeís and the AZGT on the 30th at DJís. Iíll update here again once Joe has confirmed the clubhouse reservations.

Ok, little schedule snafu there. It would have been awfully short notice anyway.

The room is now reserved for the OLPS on Saturday the 16th for the final race of season III. Hope to see you all there.

*** May OLPS Results ***

Wow! Great results guys. And we broke the 100 lap barrier! We were really on our game last month, particularly in the CCW race locking up the top five spots. Practice and team work guys, practice and teamwork paying off.

Now we are down to the final race of Season III. Brad and OnRailz are tied for the Championship. The next track is a tough one, requiring perfect timing through the 180's and laser-like precision through the chicane and out to the fast straight without pushing into the wall.

I hope everyone got plenty of practice in. So let's bring that Championship title home to Phoenix!

See 'ya all on the 16th.

*** (June) Season III OLPS Finale Results ***

Mini-AZ brings home the top spot in the Driver's Championship! Congratulations Brad! And congratulations Hood, Joe, Bill (and even me!) for hanging onto the Top Ten! And congratulations to OnRailz, Spoon, HobbyCar, Ringer, and Mini-Z for a hard fought battle for that top bracket. Well done all.

That was a terrific season, with new and challenging layouts, and tougher than ever competition from the Top Ten on down the line. We had great fun competing with all of you in your various parts of the world and look forward to going even faster in Season IV.

Mini-AZ was only able to capture the runner up spot in the Club Championship, but against some solid performing clubs that is certainly an achievement to be proud of. This is the result of teamwork and encouragement to elevate each person in our group to be the best driver possible. Congratulations again to everyone at Mini-AZ to bring home this excellent result. And congratulations to DC GTG on capturing the title of Fastest Club in the World.
