  • 2020 RAA Round #2 at GMS

    Happy Friday everyone. I wanted you all to know that the cars arrived safely at Galena Motor Speedway here in Ohio this week. I plan to do a cleanup of my track, (little dusty) and then do some warm ups.
    I'm hoping to get the round run this weekend or next at the very latest.




    Here are some pics of my 2 lane Carrera track.

      Looking forward to the next round. I especially like your wall decorations - the Spitfire and P51 Mustang!

        Thanks, I dig them. The Man cave has lots of art on the walls. 😃

        I will be posting Quali notes this evening. Need to figure out how soon I can get the race in, got behind in my slot car duties.

      Hello fellow racers! Time has come for the qualification results for round 2 of the 2020 RAA, here at GMS in Central Ohio!

      We had 8 vehicles arrive approximately 2 weeks ago, and we finally got a chance to take these beauties for a spin on the 6'x16' Carrera based track with a lap length of about 65'.

      Fans, my only problem now is when to get the race run. I qualified the cars myself in the White lane (inside). I am trying to coordinate with a few fellow racers to see when I can get them here. I'm already 2 weeks behind and I apologize for that.

      I will do my best to run them this Sunday. If I cannot, is everyone OK if it's another week or 2? If it's an issue I can move them on, I leave it up to you. thanks

              Finally I have a chance to post the Race results for round of the RAA here at Galena Motorsports Complex.
              My thanks for your patients while I organized getting drivers to run the event. I played host and track marshalling duties.

              My drivers are a little new to my track, so I gave them about 30 minutes with my personal cars so they could learn the ropes before unleashing the proxy cars.
              I forgot to capture offs, so I took each lanes fast laps added together for tie breakers.

              Congratulations to CJ-74 for posting the new Quali and race fast lap records! Excellent work!

              I tried to capture pics as I could from the action, sorry if I missed a pic of your car. I've learned a lot from this proxy, my second. The first was the 1/24 Trans Am Proxy in 2019.

                So did I finish second or third? The computer shows second, but what you posted says I am third.

                  Sorry, the info on my spreadsheet was messed up, you are second. I entered column one incorrectly. The Computer screen is correct. My fault REL.
                  I will try to update it later.

                Awesome sauce! Thanks for the run!

                Congrats to Robert and Steve on their podium finished. And Steve for the TQ honors with a record time.

                If only I could bottle the magic that this car seems to have this car and sprinkle a little bit on some of my others. BUT... This thing is just getting going. Who knows what's to come.
