    Some pics I missed by Patrick Skene of Slot Car Racing News...


    Get well soon my friend. Every body at ISRA wishes you a speedy recovery.
    (Stanislav Polic - Czech racer - see Greg's note below)

    From Greg Norris' post (Backmarker's View of the 2014 ISRA Worlds):

    First some truly bad news: We’re all racing under a cloud of sadness. Three days ago, Stanislav Polic, long-time and very popular Czech racer, and a gregarious, funny, friendly man, suffered a hemorrhagic stroke (means a stroke caused by bleeding, not a clot) during practice. He was immediately transported to the local hospital. He is stable, but in a drug-induced sleep (to lessen the chance of rebleeding). If he remains stable, they will wake him up in a few days, and his caregivers will find out how much damage he suffered acutely. As is obvious from the above, he is in critical condition. If you believe in prayer, please consider including him in yours.

    A great day for me. I was given a copy of the History of Latvian slot racing by the writer Imants Jerkins. Of course I reciprocated by giving him a copy of SCRN. My thanks go to Ivars Ramans for organising this for me. Ivars is a multi Soviet Union Slot Racing champion in his own right and is looking after the UK team here in Limbazi.

    Thank you for posting such great pictures that capture the fun and sportsmanship of this event.

    I hope that someday I can be a participant in this wonderful international event that celebrates the highest level of our hobby.

    Long live Slot Car Racing.
