Wow, I thought my car would have done better, but there are some very nice runners out there. Congrats Monte on the podium finish. I want to run that when you get it back. (and take it apart and take pictures :lol: )

Update - the cars were mailed off this afternoon to Bob Methe. Bob will run them on his Cornerstone Raceway track; a great track that will, I'm sure, provide plenty of action! He said he's going to try to get his drivers together for the weekend after this one coming (target date is the 28th); so stay tuned for a thread from Bob on Round #2 at Cornerstone. Good luck to everyone!

I'm a little late to the party but thanks to Allan and team for getting this round in the books. Hats off to Monte for flying the NASTE flag at (almost) the front of the field. WOW! Nice work!! Thanks for giving both the Scuderia Kouba entries a good flogging as well. Nice to see competitiveness on my part in the first proxy I've entered in a LONG time.

Looking forward to see how the rest of the rounds shake out. I see that some things never change- I want to know what magic sauce Smokeio spreads on his cars to make them SO (fill in the blank) fast...

Until the next round...

Thanks again Allan for organizing the proxy and herding the kittens.

The first round has been added to the series spreadsheet here:

Ford v. Porsche

The first tab has the individual placements - the second has the "Team" totals.
Starting off as a pretty evenly matched series gents!

Thanks Todd. The spreadsheet looks great - as usual! :handgestures-thumbup: :handgestures-thumbup:

Closer than I thought it would be at the Teams level - could be interesting as the track mix changes.

Yep the sheet does look good,
curious as well what the other tracks will bring,

Lets warm them tires and scrub off the marbles!!
