My personal thanks to all who worked hard to put this event on the calendar, notably Mike and Dave at Cloverleaf and also Steve from Slot Car Corner who worked alongside them as well as racing.

This was a very fun event, well worth the trip. The racing was super close and intense but the atmosphere was festive anf friendly from beginning to end.

It was great to meet up with old friends, some of whom I have not seen in 8-10 years, and to make a whole bunch of new friends too. The local racers at Cloverleaf are a cool bunch of guys and they really know their track and their cars well, so they were very tough competitors. Congrats to all the podiumites, but IMO everyone who was there was a winner.

My cars (which were ready to go!) seemed faster than the ones I saw going around the track today.


I see (bad pun...) your eyesight continues to deteriorate as you get older - time to get your eyeglass prescription checked...

It is a metric thing Steve or maybe he was watching on a really small screen.

We had to declare a tie on that one.

In Vintage GT, Smokeio got me by two laps, we finished 7th and 8th respectively.

In Modern GT, I managed to turn the tables on him, but it was a lot closer. We ended 4th and 5th, separated by about 2/3 of a lap and two laps behind third place.

But we had a ball racing against each other and generally catching up after 10 years.

Thanks for the race-within-a-race update, Dennis. From a couple of Proxy races, I've become familiar with your excellent constructor skills. By being capable of dicing with the smoking one, it looks like you have equally excellent driving skills.

It looked like great fun. Well done, guys.

You're welcome and thanks for the compliments!

I was very happy with my results all round, especially as we almost never run silicone tires out here, so I had a steep learning curve to climb. And then with the tires being slip-on only, no glueing or trueing allowed, that required a different driving style too.

Christian, it's because they turn the voltage way down so they don't fall out. It's a Michigan thing. :lol: :banana-dance:

Way to go guys and congratulations to all the winners. Looks like I missed a really good time but I'm spending all my money gearing up for the Michigan 24. :music-rockout:
