Update.
Wheelchair Stand is complete.  Lift installed and ready.  Facility is full wheelchair accessible as of last night thanks to Yves.
AMB system acquired. Audio system and laptop are ready.
Track was watered last night.  Tarps have been layed out to keep the moisture in the track.

Weather is nice and cool.  Should be a great night for racing.

See you tonight  8)

So the first night at GFX Raceway is in the books.  Tonight could be considered a soft opening, lol, a few bugs needed to be worked out - like how to enter names into the computer, run a race etc. but we've got that down now!  Big thanks by the way to Mihai and Guy from the on road club for lending us their AMB.

 2wd buggy went well with the track damp and I was running a soft set up, rear motor, and Square Fuzzies. 

Noah Connell can chime in with his set up, he led ebuggy in the qualifiers tonight. ;)

Hope to see more racers out next week.

That was a fun start of summer club racing.

The AMB loop worked great and so did the audio system except we need to learn how to turn on the RC Scoring sound tone and laps left announcements.
Learned that 6 lights to one extention cord is too much.  :-\   easy fix.  :)
The Wheelchair lift worked flawlessly thanks to Yves help.

I was very happy with how the track held up.

Now I have more time to get my 4wd buggy going for next race. 
Also I was very pleased as to how well the 2wd buggies were quickly getting around the track.  D, I tried the b5 after you left, I was pleasantly surprised how well it worked and how fast it got around the track.

I believe the fastest lap of the night was 22.9 by Noah.  The goal is now to beat that time.

Hopefully more come out to enjoy the fun.

Practice this Saturday..... looking forward to the next race already!

PS.  It's a litle weird having this full blown racing facility in my backyard  :)

Nothing going on Friday at the track since I won't be home.

If you want to swing by Saturday evening anytime after 3pm... I will be home and practice will be going on till dark.

Or if you can remember how to add the sound and explain it to me that would be great.   Hopefully you can come next week for your first race night!

WOW. It's been awhile since I've raced outside and had an amazing time as usual. I managed to keep the lead and TQ my very first race of ebuggy.

Jack's getting really fast with his b5m rear motor. I now have some competition in 2wd lol.

The track is fast and furious. I was actually running bar codes on my 4wd, instead of Double Dees. They were really good, but the Double Dees were the best between the two.

I can't wait for next Wednesday night.
