    Retro test track

    Ben Sr, Ben Jr., Bob Maxwell and Gary Gerding will be setting up a Retro test track starting today. We could use one or two more helpers to help either assemble or re-braid the track.

    Between now and Sunday evening we will be setting up the track sections and putting on the legs. Then starting Monday we will be removing the old braid and adjusting the legs as needed.

    Then between Tuesday and Friday we will be laying down the new braid, installing the wiring, track power system and lap counter system. Then the infield.

    If one or more of you could help Gary do the braiding that would be great.

    Fantastic idea, but who races Retro in that vicinity ? The four or five guys that I know come down to Buena Park, so I wish the best for the new track, but will a Retro Program be starting up at PCH ? Hope that the new track goes well

    Well that is great Scotty, can you post some pics to see how it looks?
    Never seen one myself!
    BTW how long does it take to drive from BPR to your track in Ventura?

    Thank you to all that raced Retro, JK Stock Indy/F1 and GTS on Saturday (7/15/14). We had our best Retro Can-Am turnout to date. We raced 3 on, 2 off at 13.25 volts on the King Cobra. The race directing and turn marshaling was good. We were done and out the door at about 6:20 PM. We started at about 2:30 PM.

    Mark loaded me a JK Indy/F1 car so I could be in the first race of the day. Thank you Mark. The Parma Big Full Hub 3/32 x .765 Tuna tires seems to be a good way to go on his Cheetah 7 Indy/F1 car.

    The next race is scheduled to be Saturday 12/20/14 at 2 PM.
