    The plan is to run Round #7 of the TransAm Proxy in Edmonton today at their new track. Dariusz (radarek) is having some issues posting to this new forum, so I will try to help out and get the info/results posted here as quickly as I can. if I can't make it work, then I will post them to the old board and work out the bugs later.

    Stay tuned!!

            Radarek's comment copied from the HRW old forum:

            Hello guys

            Long time not seen but here we are...

            Sorry for lack off information, can't figure it out new website for the forum so back here I'm posting the results....

            We have run the proxy yesterday. Lets start from the beginning.... cars arrived with a little damage to the box. Cardboard was punctured in 2 places and isolation was broken although no visible damage to the cars were observed... Tom have picked up his car and replaced tires so gears are not dragging on the track any more - as per rules penalty need to be applied but that I'm leaving to the authorities. This time no qualifications, we run the cars in the general standing order. Saturday 5 of us showed up to the track. Tom, Leon and Bill did the driving, me and Art took computer and marshaling duties. Race was done on our new track The Dominator...113' routed track. Flat paint and braid. We run on 3 lanes so the cars could show all they have. Long 24 straight for some drag racing if 2 or 3 cars approached it in the same time lol... lots of gain could be taken on this straight. And there were some pretty fast cars...all cars were drivable. No car had a single problem. Only a couple of deslots were observed and never in the same spot. Some close battles but only one tie... we have split our track to 100 sections so we are quite accurate with final standing

            So here are the results

            1. #11/ 50.90 laps home track...

              Thanks Lance, I just went to do the same thing and saw your post!

              Congrats to #11 Dariusz (radarek) and #70 Mike (smokeio) on their podium finishes!

              That 113 ft Dominator is quite the slot car track and with a straight of 24 ft - that's almost a drag strip within a slot car road course....!!

              One correction, #15 had repairs performed before the start of the race and, therefore, has a 3 lap penalty for this Round, so total laps for the #15 are 43.85, placing it, I think, in 19th position. Lance, could you please edit your post to reflect that and move the appropriate cars below it up one place in the standings? We need to have the finish order right so that Todd can run the series totals. Thanks.

              I'll try to post the pics now, but this will be an experiment as I have not posted pics to this new forum yet...………….. stay tuned...………..
