You wont see many of us there again. The class is getting too fast. Also, the number of racer on the track may be going down. I am switching classes.

An RV class (basically stock) quasi formula one would be fun and sustainable.

I am moving to the formula 1 class if all goes well. Building a plane right now (i put pics on the ice cream social thread).

The Sport class is awesome but my RV cant hang. An RV class would be awesome. Specially if done in the formula 1 course.
