    Due to a scheduling conflict it looks like there will not Be a Retro race at Pacific in May HOWEVER ! Ray batchelor suggested FUN TIME RACEWAY in gig harbor & mikes Hill climber http://www.funtimeslotcars.com/ I've talked to Jim & he's cool with it , Mr Hanson Knows that track , John & Eli already race their & Dennis likes the idea ... I talked to Mike Weirman & he said Get a head count & we will set it up !! He does races on saturdays & would love to include F-1 & can-am for that day ... probably start round 11- noonish . but I mentioned some people work soo we might be able to stretch the start time some ? THIS WILL BE AN AWESOME TRACK FOR RETROS ! so gimme some feedback .. otherwise it wont be till june 2 at pacific for the next race .....Craig

    I would like to run on the Hillclimb. Been too long since I have run on that track! My last time on that track was a few months before WSSH closed.

    Hmmm Im going to have to do some rebuilding on my cars.... May not have time to get it done...

    I am UP/DOWN with it too. Spread the word and try to get a head count of participants ...... including Dale. He's the man to beat.

    Will 3pm be an OK time for the first Retro race? We are trying to firm up the schedule.

    Also... since it is Cinco de Mayo, I think I have convinced Melanie into having tacos prepared to serve between the F1 and Can-Am. A head count would be great so we know how much food to prepare.

    3 o clock is cool by me !

    & now TACOS !! Its just getting better !! I talked to Dale & he is a GO! .. Still would like to here from Joe, Leonard , or Tim... & anyone else who is interested? so far that would make 7 for retro (not including locals ) BTW! It has been brought to my attention that Jim said he still plans a RETRO RACE in may? We will be waiting for that announcement on OWH ... But? FUNTIME ON THE 5TH LOOKS LIKE A GO >>>>> p.s. YOU GUYS STILL RACING JK FORMULAS ??

    Yes we are racing the Indy cars. Are you interested in racing them before the Retro races?

    I'm sure I can get there by 3. The question is if I'll have my cars ready to race. I need to rebuild the F1 and the Can Am isn't any better.
