Default Hitting the Wall... 1 month til the dead (and I really mean "dead") line



I've been doing some hard thinking about the TLOR series for this year. With only 10 cars in 2 classes it's just not practical to continue the series unless I get more entries... at least half a dozen more cars will make The Last Open Road Proxy of 2017 happen. I really don't think TLOR is a total loss so in hopes we can make it happen I'm throwing out this new deadline to see if anyone else will come through with an entry.

The new deadline for TLOR 2017 is September 1, 2017.

For those of you who have sent cars in I will be happy to return them to you along with your entry fees... unless you would rather let them languish in the spacious temperature controlled Greenman62 paddock until the fall. PM me with your instructions.

For those of you who committed to run races at your respective tracks around the US and Canada please bear with me until the fall. If this is problematic let me know by PM.

I thank you all for your support for the series over the years and I sincerely apologize for the delays to date.

As one of the current entrants I'm more than happy for you to hold my car until racing starts. This is a great proxy and I'm glad I'm part of it.

I'll see if any more Aussies are interested in entering.

Cheers

Paul

I will be digging through the stable to find an entry. Happy to have an opportunity to get in the show.

Excellent! I don't think the rules are too onerous... My hope at the beginning was to encourage builders to get to the top of their game building quick good handling, good looking cars of a period not many are familiar with. Besides, I'm not opposed to helping a friend "pimp" his books.

Default Only a few weeks away...

OK, it's summer. You're in the pool, BBQ-ing and going on vacation - not thinking about slot cars.

This winter (and yes, Virginia, it will return...), you'll be staring at your workbench at pieces of a great Last Open Road project car and going "Gee, I wish there was a proxy race for these cars..."

Well, there will be if we can get a few more entrants - you've got six weeks --let's go!!!

I had a lovely post all typed in and the most excellent browser checker crashed it.

At this point, I will simply type that I am in with a 300 SL. It's white with a red nose.

I'm still in Greg, all three times. Though I might need to check the air in the tires after all this time. :-)
