Has anyone gone during the week for practice? I was thinking of going on an off road racing night. I would think the on road track would have less traffic on those nights.

I went during the week once and depending on the time the on road track was light with traffic. I still could get some time in but it was with one or two cars on the track. Early Sunday mornings it was no one there thats when I shot my video, you have to get there right when it opens. Larry you going to make it on the 16th.

I went to the storage unit to see if I could find the box/es of my motorcycle stuff and had no luck. With all the junk we have in there I doubt I'll find it until we move everything out. It's looking like that's not going to happen for at least another couple of weeks.

I'm thinking I may just buy another one, so that I'll be able to join you guys on the 16th. I'll stop by for sure, it just a question of whether I'll have a bike to run, or not.

the 1/8 scale suits that WCRC well. it's a bit cramped for 1/5.

Eddie is probably going to be there. Talked to him today, and he's likely to practice at Camarillo this week.

I don't have time to practice this week, but I plan on getting to the track a couple of hours early.

What time is everyone going to be up there, we're used to being at the track early and racing mid afternoon. Racing starts at 6:30pm here and we have to work out a practice plan with West Coast. When the cars are there its nonstop for them, so what time is everyone thinking of showing up?.

Hello everyone yesterday(Sat 11/16/10) was great day of racing. Like my good friend Stubbyphilips always Say's " A bad day of racing beats a good day of working any day". The turnout was pretty good we had Lito(Guidoracer), jimmy(Akura2), Eddie(JohnnyGyro) and me(DLAWW). Larry DI(2000-redrider) was there also but he did not have a bike to run Larry always gives good competition. Thanks to West Coast Raceway for being very accommodating and providing a great venue for showcasing the bikes. There were two qualifiers and a A Main, all in all I think everyone did well for there first time on this track. I've put in a little more time at West Coast then everyone else so I did a little better. I know when everyone else gets there bikes sorted out and some more track time its going to be a very competitive venue. It doesn't take long for you guys to get up to speed. I think we accomplished what our goal was for the day, to have fun and to show people how the bikes can run. The crowd gathered around the track to watch and was very intrigued, one of the car guys commented that they don't draw that type of attention. We spoke with the owner of West Coast Raceway and they are primed and ready to have the bikes as a regular Class. I thank everyone for coming out, Video to come!
