ATTENTION...

There are going to be scoring adjustments to 4 cars. After close review, 4 cars were credited with 0 laps in one heat each. We're going through the video now... Stay tuned. I'd like to thank the Professor for helping identify the issue as well as putting on an excellent race yesterday. Those drivers were giving each car it's best. Unless you were in the Professor's lane in which case you got "the best of the best of the best, sir".

Adjustments to come...

I hope all the lap adjustments are above me. This is the best my car has done so far. Thanks Professor and crew for pushing my car to the limits and getting every inch out of it. Thanks to all involved to pull of another great race.

Paul, #99

Yes. And No. Uh, don't jump. No, wait for me! No, don't jump. No, wait for me...

It's at times like this that I'm reminded of a story I read in Sports Illustrated as a yute...
I forget the players name but he was the Orioles 25th man. He said "I dreamed the plane crashed on the way home from a road trip. Everyone was killed but me. They brought up 24 players. I was still the 25th man".

Once again, don't jump without me.

Sorry for the confusion guys, my PC Lapcounter program preformed flawlessly in the Slot.it Shootout race run just before this one. But Kidvoltage saved the day by reviewing the tape and I dug deep into the program to retrieve the missing heats. I had no idea that program sorts that kind of data.

The scores will be updated by Pukplyr but the following cars lap counts have changed to.

#15 125 laps
#22 143 laps
#23 132 laps
#25 126 laps

The cars will be sent to 132 Slotcar and into the capable hands of Mr. Alan Smith this week.

Good luck to all in the upcoming races...

I started to watch the video last night but was too tired and it was not easy to see clearly, so I gave up. I'd complain to the MonTV complaint department but I'm sure I'd be told to go Helen Waite and that's never a good idea.

Exactly my thoughts!

Car #25 has dropped 12 spots in two races! Yikes! Can someone please check that it still has four wheels and that plastic blade thingie in the front....on second thought, it can't be that obvious...maybe the rear wing is bent or missing, and the car is loosing aero downforce..

Not sure about you KV, but I am still jumping, albeit it from a few floors down...more like serious injury, rather than death...!

Thanks to all at Willow Park and MonTV (I assume the production crew is becoming seriously familiar with the I5) for another great event!

Did I mention that I love buying stuff from Allen and 132Slotcar.us....(I hope this helps, for the next event!!)

F1fan

Well at least I am still the top placed Canadian entry...

A little race video:




And finally, every dog truly has it's day as Stella (Dave's dog) takes a few laps. We're happy to report that though she may not been fast, there were no offs.




We few, we fortunate few...

Monte,

Thanks to you and John for the photos of my 2 x 66's (which of course = 132, so they should do well at the next venue....)

Hey, one can dream....

Really pleased that that video captured the part of the race where my Pug was behaving itself.....

Cheers, Tony.
