    RETRO Formula 462 Saturday 5/26/2012 11:00 AM

    We're going to do a special RETRO F1 500ish Lap Race on the Hillclimb Saturday 5/26.

    Tech will close at 11:00 AM (We have races scheduled later in the day so we need to minimize overlap).

    The format is subject to what the race computer is capable of but what we're going to try is a 60 ish lap per lane race. We will be doing qualification for lane choice.

    Retro Computer "A" socket 462

    Highest even number nearest 500 but not over.

    Or one of Paul's favorite movie answers....

    Can we get a good headcount of retro racers up for this special race?

    Want to do it .......... if the turnout will warrant the 100 mile drive round trip.

    Tim doesn't like to drive F1 cars ........ you must have promised him a winning car?

    Hopefully, other racers will add themselves in here to make the Paciific 500 a happening event.

    I am ready.

    Looks like Leonard Strand and Lee Gilbert are in, Myself of course.. I don't think turnout will be a problem. I'll invite Team Cavish on Friday hopefully they can make it.

    We will be doing laps per heat, 500 / 8 or number of drivers if more than 8. I tested this tonight for the Kid's womp races. Computer shuts off power when first person in heat gets n laps, then we all do normal rotation, winner is the person at the end with the most laps! Should be a fun new adventure.

    Painfully, on that track (The hillclimb) we run Slottrak. SRT on the Twister, Lanemaster on the Chief and Trackmate on the Drag Strip. Last year I began a consolidation effort to move everything except the drag strip to Lapmaster, Hopefully I'll have some time this summer to finish that project.

    Okay, I'm in. Craig has another commitment.

    Will have to give up my usual Saturday morning event .......... but wouldn't want to miss out on this special 500 lapper in case it turns out to be gobs of fun.
