You only need one fleet of foot marshal who can cover the whole track nimbly and you should be fine. It will also make you concentrate on not crashing so much and getting yourself out of trouble.
the track is over 230' long and we are all old!!

So am I!

It wont be any of you marshalling, you'll be racing! Perhaps a sprightly yoof relative or two? Persuade them with pocket money.

Racing Porter Texas/Mikes hobby shop 31st of July

Well guys the date has been made...

7/31/2011
Racing starts at 2pm
Mikes Hobby shop Porter Texas

Location Via Map
http://www.mikes-hobbyshop.com/category_s/54.htm

3- 8 minute qualifiers
1- 12 minute main

Run what you bring. As long as its a rc motorcycle. 1/8 1/5 On road, off road, and will be on the On Road track. Transponders will not be offered, you will have to bring your own. Or race anyway just to be there.

1st 2nd and 3rd place will have cash prizes.

Entry fee will be 20 USD per vechicle. I predict that their will only be one class. 5 dollars will come from each entry into a pot to be spread to each podium driver after the race is over.

For entry call mikes hobby shop to sign up on Sunday. Entries will stop being taken around 1pm.

If you have another question you can Pm me or call me after i give you my number via Pm or email. ClaySheward@gmail.com

Come watch!! Come Race!! It should be interesting!!!!

That was incredibly fun regardless

Man it was hot, Track temp was 145 F. Our tires turned to grease half way through the Quals and main. I think houston is a Med compound tire kinda place.
