Any interest in doing Mini-Z once a Month?

Any bay area Mini-Zers interested in doing Mini-Z racing once a month? I found a place in Santa Clara that would allow us to race once a month. If we can get enough interest, we can make this happen.

Please comment if you are interested, also please comment to tell me I am crazy.


thanks.


UPDATE: Looks like there is enough interest to give this a try.

Date: November 10, 2018
Time: 4:30 pm racing starts.
Practice Start Time: 3:30pm, I plan to get there around 3pm to set up the track, come help if you can.
Racing fee: $20 for first class, $10 for second
Classes: Novice Stock, Super Stock, Modified
Address: 3459 El Camino Real, Santa Clara, CA 95051 ( I would suggest parking on Devos Ct)

Remember, you will need to bring your own table and chairs. Maybe an extension cord also. If you want to be a little elevated for driving, bring a small step stool.

Hey Binh,

Of course we're interested (we still have all of our stuff...the kids really miss it)....but I think I'm the only one from ILR that checks this forum. I will go ahead and repost your message on other social media if that's ok, most of the ILR gang is on there.

The place I found is a car repair shop. The track will be a little smaller. Racers would also have to bring their own table and extension cords.

Suggestion for first race date would be either 11/3 or 11/10 4-8pm. If there is enough interest for one of these dates, I will start to set things up.

thanks,
Binh

Bing, it's great seeing you keep the racing going! Wish I could come out for some races, but the finances don't allow it right now.

So I heard their is a race going on 11/3, so it looks like the date for Mini-Z will be 11/10. Attached is a picture of the place where the track will go. The space will be cleaned out. The wall with the two doors will be the back straight.

Just measured the space. We will have room for 18 x 12 tiles. But we can make room for the back straight to be 20 tiles. Working on layout now.

I hope you guys get it going. My sister lives in SF, so maybe someday I could join you, but it would be a once in a blue moon type of thing. I dont get down there often. HFAY layouts would work well in your space and you could compete with some other clubs. It is not what it once was, but we have had a great time competing. Our tiny Eastern WA club only has 3 racers, but we still manage to get together once a month and battle. It always makes for a super fun night that I look forward to all month.

Just updated the first post with date, time, and place for the first race. Hope everyone can make it. Please note, new race time will be at 4:30 pm. This will leave us with some time at the end of the night to clean up the track.

thanks,
Binh

Ok Binh,

Pretty much everyone has responded as yes so far on FB, so will likely be at least 15 of us if not more (few have not responded yet). We'll try to come early at 3pm to help setup.

Thank you for the update and the help. I posted on m-space and still no replies yet. I think myspace is having trouble with their servers.

Hey Binh,

Thank you so much for organizing this! My friend and I have been getting back into mini-z and the lack of tracks and events in the bay has been pretty disappointing. So excited for this!

Will you have transponders available to borrow or rent, or should we bring our own? What system do you use?

I'll be there at 3!
