I didn't get drawing this last night, so I'll draw the replacement racer tonight. Make sure you submitted the form above if you want to be added to the waitlist. I'll post an update tonight.
That is the Deluxe Racing car locked in and ready to make it's trip over to Redline Derby Raceway for this event, i can't tell how it will do but in testing it's beating my fastest stock car on the test track so i have hopes i'll do better than last time.Ladies and gentlemen i present you with "The Driftwood"
a Custom Dodge Challenger Drift car (identical to the black one ) now with wood effect roof and weighing in at 72 grams i hope it does well
@ RedlineDerby you'll get an email from my courier no doubt
I finally cleared up the replacement driver situation, and the replacement racer is DeeJa out of Oaklahoma. He'll be pairing with GhostDriver.
Just a heads up there's a good chance we'll have to draw another replacement racer this coming week. If you're interested in possibly being in the Pro-Am, please join the waitlist and your name will be in contention.
More early this week...
After a little delay, I can finally confirm a replacement. Bigg Samm will be replacing Miniature Car Racing in the Amateur division. Their Pro teammate is Secondhand Speed. Welcome to the Summer Pro-Am, Bigg Samm.
Hopefully that will be all we need to worry about regarding replacements. Deadline is a about a month and half away...plenty of time to do some building and testing.
This is going to be awesome!
I hope to make the roster one of these days.
Just a reminder that we're about a month out from the entry deadline for the Summer Pro-Am! Deadline is May 16th and that'll be a pretty hard cut-off. I have received a few cars already that look great and are ready to roll.
Also, if you haven't yet, please get in touch with your teammate via PM or email or whatever. Part of this event is the team scoring so connecting with your partner is encouraged. Even if it's just a "Hello" and introduction, that's cool and lets your teammate know you're still good to race and will be sending in a car. Don't let your teammate hangin'! You can use the Member search to find your teammate and message them.
If for any reason you now know you won't be able to make the deadline or the event, please PM me so we can figure out a solution, or if need be, find a replacement racer.
I'll be finalizing scoring and race formats soon in coordination with the other track hosts. That info will get updated and posted once it's ready.
I've gotten a lot of comments and concerns about the team aspect of the Pro-Am. People worried if their teammate is sending a car, or they're being difficult to contact...stuff like that. All valid concerns but please remember that this isn't only a team event.
There's going to be a Pro champ and Amateur champ, and Team champs.
You can still win without being on a team! So even if your teammate doesn't make the deadline or you're not really in touch with them, that's okay! Build a car like you would for any other mail-in event and send it in. Your chances are just as good as anyone else's given the multi-track nature of this event. You could be the division champ even if you aren't a team champ.
I appreciate that some folks have really sunk their teeth in on teaming up for this event but it shouldn't be a source of stress or stop you from having fun with this event.
Build your car, send it in, and hope for the best - just like always. If your teammate sends in a car, then great. If they don't, that's okay, you could still walk away with some fortune and glory.
The summer Pro-Am is as much a singles event as it is a team event.
Spoke too soon! Another racer in the Amateur division has dropped out so I'll be drawing another name from the waitlist this Friday 4/16. Please add your name to the waitlist if you haven't already.
And to those joining and already on the wait list - I'll be emailing you with a notice, so be aware and please reply so we can get everything squared away. Thanks, good luck!
