    Personally i will race what all the other guys want to race.
    I have my own opinion but does it really matter if no one else agrees?
    I cant race alone.

    Fyi my local track sees at least 30 entry's in Group 10 Gtp weekly, with i believe a record of 45.

    You are lucky to live near a track with such a base of racers.
    Congratulations to Speedzone for doing such a great job promoting their track.
    The good tracks have diverse racing programs to appeal to more guys.
    The good tracks race more than the lowest end cars.
    I have to drive an Hour and a Half to get to the nearest track and they pretty much just race FCR.
    Some guys have fun racing that stuff and that`s great, but I have no interest in it.
    I`d rather stay home.
    I`ve always been kind of a speed freak I guess, and there`s no danger in Slot Car Racing.
    Hope to see you guys this Summer.

    Treat yourself to a great weekend of racing on May 19th & 20th. Indy and NASCAR on the 19th; GP12, Cobalt 12, and 27 Lites on the 20th, all at The Track in Gaithersburg, MD. Hotels are just a mile from The Track.

    I`m going back home to the Indy 500.
    Thanks for the invite though.
    Mimi`s is a great place.
    I ran there in 2003.
    An example of the style of racing you get in an affluent, educated area.
    Good luck and have fun.

    I want to go to the 500 again. I was there in 1973 (the one that no one wants to remember) and in 1978 (the one I can't remember).

    I was there too.
    Gordon Johncock won in `73 after all the rain and carnage.
    I think Al Unser won in `78.
    There`s nothing like it.

    Bill Puterbaugh was a friend of ours ( http://www.billputerbaugh.com/ ). He was a pit crew guy for Dick Simon in 73, then he went on to race and got rookie of the year in 75 I think. We stayed with Bill in Indiana in 73 and got to meet several drivers. Bill also took us around the track at about 100 mph in his Caddy. I was only 13 then.

    Gtp

    Usra gtp is a really fun class since you broke it down to only wings and flexi's... Since you get to still use the good handleing gtp bodies...

    ***Also which is fun is 1/24 hawk7 LMP/GT-1 on PCH flat track!!!!

    Funny to read this thread, literally years after it began.
    Racers here in the Carolinas are all about flexi chassis. They like the NASCAR and GTP but I can't give away a wing car to race. Some modest....very modest I treat in Retro but it's hanging by a thread.
    Folks here can't spell FCR. And WOMP? What's that?

    No 7 or 27 in these parts. Just fast little GTP cars.

    I race mostly Flat track scale cars in the Garden State Isra Series. I have raced retro a time or 2 . love the scratch built aspect of it but have to use what spare time i have to building better motors and chassis for what i race. I have recently built 2 fcr hardbody cars and they are like watching paint dry but are still fun and there is some interest in them . So I say we need all types of racing to continue so what tracks we have stay open . Because its not easy to run a club track either I know We have the Garden state isra club and sometimes its hard to get people to race. this saturday we have an fcr race and should have close to 15 racers I say go fcrs.

    LMP/GT1?b-production This has always been my favorite class to build and race. Cars are fast ,but not to fast, the motors are probably the most dependable and most equal in all of slotcar racing and the bodies used are very reallistic as far as slotcars go..

    I raced ISRA B-Production at Bristolville, Ohio.
    The class is super fun but the track was too hard for most of the Ohio guys and it closed.

    There's a beautiful UK Black near Pittsburgh that runs a monthly ISRA race.
