    The 3rd Plafit PanAm is the closer to the ISRA Worlds 2010 week.

    (Track & Lap Counter webcams + live chat)

    I was not aware of the PanAm races being held also this weekend! Judging by all the others on the live chat, I'm not alone, since most logged on the webcams to see the ISRA racing.

    So - watch the PanAm Plafit races via the same page with 2 webcams & live chat!

    Link to MG's Photo Gallery with a few pics of the Plafit cars... I'm sure he'll be posting more pics when he's not busy racing or marshaling!

    After a brutal and challenging week of ISRA World Championshiop racing, the 3rd PanAm was a great way for some true legends of Slot Car racing (and at least one person in their very first race ever!) to enjoy themselves with the excellently prepared Formula LeMans cars provided by Mark Campbell and Nick de Wachter.

    Right after the awards presentation I caught up with Howie who was grinning ear from ear over the team victory. You would have thought that he had won the Japanese (F1) Grand Prix held earlier in the weekend. The intensity of racing was certainly no less than shown in any other event held during Worlds Week 2010.

    Based on the comments in webcam "chat", the audience around the world enjoyed the spectacle of the 3rd PanAm too. I felt privilged to be included in such a deep pool of scale racing talent. Unfortunately the wheel bearing failure put paid to our hopes of bettering our result of 4th overall in the inaugural PanAm Plafit Championship.

    Thank you to event sponsors GR1D and of course Plafit for their support which made this event possible.

    Thank you to Mid-America Raceways and Hobbies for providing the event location and track for the second time (the 1st PanAm was also held at Mid-America in their former location in Montgomery, IL).

    A heartfelt thanks to Nick de Wachter for creating and providing the carbon composite Formula LeMans bodies used on all of the race cars.

    I feel that this race was more fun than can be otherwise be had legally and if it is at all possible, I would strongly urge you to make plans to participate in the PanAm Plafit championship IV in 2011 (details TBA).
