Good thing about this format is that the new racer can gleam some experience from the veteran. Share tips on speed and other aspects. To me, this is a great learning tool and could help both later on down the road. Plus you have an extra person cheering for you along the way.
Signed up, hope to be in the Amateur side. So far, I've done 4 races with widely different results.
First mod: Almost qualified for Rookie Rally
Second mod: didn't make it down the track Pinks
Third mod: Won 16 car field in Winter Classic
Fourth mod: made top 16 of 70 vans in Plethora of Party Wagons
Fifth mod: not finished or sent in yet for March race Sock Hop Slam
Not Sure What Spot To Sign Up iN?
LOL, Its funny cause I would say I am still a Amateur but some people may think I am not. But its like the Rookie Rally race, there was alot of guys that I thought were seasoned racers but apparently they were not. I ve been racing on FB and YouTube for about a year, I think. So I guess I will go with PRO, cause after a year of this, I've should of leared something???
LETS DO THIS!!!!!!
So I did the Survey and it was pretty good, really good questions. I was kinda torn on one of them. How long have you been Racing Diecast. Well, I could of said All My Life, Started as a kid. Or I started 20 plus years ago at the HW Conventions or like now..... Realy Competeing against others who build cars to WIN! not just for fun.... I've only have been competeing in this type of racing for a little over a year I believe. WHO's gonna be on my team? Who likes to build Jaguars XJ220's and Cadillac's V16's?
This seems like a realy unique format.
On the survey question about performance, I got to say there is quite a gap between "Bottom Half" and "Top 10". How about "middle of pack", which is where I'm happy reside in this crowd.
Thanks for everyone that has signed up already. I'm going through the entries and seeing which side of the fence people will fall. We're close to full fields already!
Please keep in mind you don't exactly choose if you're a Pro or Amateur in this case :) I'll be putting you one side or the other based on the form, yes, but also from what I know, what I've seen, and where I feel you will have good competition.
Just filled out the main entry form. This is a great idea. Hopefully I make the cut!
Thankfully Nathan is not driving in this, otherwise y'all know how it would end up!
I submitted an entry form ... my modifying experience is a little vague because it depends on your exact definition of "modifying." (And note that my Suburban "Marlin" which has raced on the DCRL channel was not actually modified by me--I just put it to good use. I did once add some weights to the top of it for a local race that it won, though, and may eventually add some graphite of mine to it.)
Wonderfully, there were more sign-ups than open slots and now I'll be going through the remaining applicants to see how they can be classified.
I'll update the roster lists this week and send out email notifications.
I'm sorry to anyone that wanted in on this but missed the chance or if you just don't make the cut even if you did sign up. There's plenty of other racing opportunities coming up this year with both Redline Derby and other clubs. Check out the racing calendar for more.
