Title: RRR Raceway Summer schedule
Post by: fasteddie d on May 09, 2010, 07:34:24 PM
Fellow RC'ers

Its going to be a very exciting Summer. We are all set and have a summer schedule to share with you. We have 2 locations to run in,
South Surrey Skytrain Parking lot (Lot A) and West Coast Express in Port Coquitlam. We will start running in South Surrey Skytrain Station as the weather should be better there. Then as we move into better weather in the summer, we will run @ West Coast Express. We can all decide together which lot is better or if we like them both we will alternate between lots, say monthly...

The focus of our club is to have FUN! We invite all On Road type cars (Nitro/Electric) to come out.
We strive to have the best track, materials and equipment available for all of us to enjoy.

We mainly run Test and Tune days. However, we will be adding Club Races and our BIG RRR Race and we are also working on resurrecting the Golden Spike Days Race.

Here is our proposed Schedule. I have noted some other races as well.

May-16-2010 = RRR Raceway - Test & Tune
May-23-2010 = RRR Raceway - Club Race
May 30-2010 = RRR Raceway - Test & Tune

July-10-11-2010 = RRR is out of town. Most of us will be away attending the IROCC Speed Weekend.
July-18-2010 = RRR Raceway - Test & Tune
July-23-24-25 = RRR is out of town. Most of us will be going to Time Zone Grad Prix

We are going to run this weekend . Its costs 10.00 dollars for the day. Almost if not everyone runs with dsm so its very unlikely that you will have any conflicts.
If you would like to help a little with set up get there around 9am.
Everyone is welcome so come on out I know you will have a lot fun.

We will be running some races for
Mini - Nitro - Touring 13.5 - Pro gt - F1
Just for fun but a great chance to get ready for the upcoming Victoria Race. Bring your pit crew and bend them into shape:sneaky:
                                                                                  And there is a lot of new Pro GT owners that im sure will be out.

Here is the track from the first day:

Lots of fun this past Sunday.

The weather hasn't been to kind on any of us but with pure dedication from the everyone we have been able to get some track time in .

The group seems to have found a layout that we all like and we are going to try and keep it for most of the season, or to just slightly tweek it to keep things interesting .

We have been able to take great strides in solving some of our track cleaning and traction issues and last Sunday the track has been the best its ever been with lots of smiles and great comments from all the drivers .

Remeber as long as it doesn't rain we are going to be out at the track .

RRR Racing is proud to annouce our 2011 Summer on road schedule .

This year we are pleased to be at our new location at the Student parking lot at the BCIT Aerospace Technology Center in Richmond BC. This is where we held our Annual Summer Challenge last year which was a great success .Our goal is to get started the first week of May and run every weekend till weather premits.

We are very excited for all of the racers as the surface is the best the group has ever been able to secure which will be able to support many different classes due to the smoother surface .

We will have other great news in the weeks to come .

Hope to see you at the track this summer !
Title: Re: RRR Raceway Summer schedule
Post by: fasteddie d on April 25, 2011, 02:09:45 PM
The Ready to Run Racing season opener is just around the corner .

Our first official date will be May 1st. The plan is to clean off the track next Saturday late afternoon about 5-6pm then run Sunday .

The first couple of weekends are going to be test and tune sessions so we could slowly settle into our new home and to give everyone a chance to meet and talk about the season to come. Bring any class of on road car you want and we will group everyone accordingly .

Some exciting news that I would like to mention is the date of our Annual Summer Challenge which is going to be August 6th-7th.

See you at the track
Title: Re: RRR Raceway Summer schedule
Post by: fasteddie d on April 29, 2011, 06:51:41 PM
Just to let everyone know. When you arrive please go to the far east end of the parking lot which is toward the river as there will be another group that will be using the front portion .

Let the count down begin !
Title: Re: RRR Raceway Summer schedule
Post by: fasteddie d on May 12, 2011, 07:59:08 PM
The weather on Sunday is not looking good but Saturday is more promising .
I have asked the lot owners if its alright to run on Saturday and I am waiting for a reply .
We are putting the word out and will update this thread tomorrow evening with more news.
Title: Re: RRR Raceway Summer schedule

I am very sorry for getting everyones hopes up.

I know its a little early but just saw the forecast for the up coming weekend and it looks beautiful .
Unless it changes we are going to be at the track bright and early Sunday morning for some great outdoor on road rc fun .
My cars are ready to fly I hope yours are to . 
     
Title: Re: RRR Raceway Summer schedule
Post by: fasteddie d on May 18, 2011, 06:23:11 AM
Some of the guys advised that the weather looks better Saturday then Sunday so it looks like we are going to run on Saturday .
Will probably follow the same schedule as last time (clean up Friday and run Saturday).

Well it looks like I had the wrong idea with trying to go for the Saturday .
The forecast has changed again and it looks like Sunday is going to be the better day .
I have asked the owners if we could just go back to our regular Sunday .I think also logistically it would be easier for everyone to set up Sunday .I should have answer tonight .
I am very sorry for trying to flip the dates .
Super mario is away for the next couple of dates so extra help would be greatly appreciated .
Our goal is to be at  the track Sunday morning 8am  .
Hope to see you there

Post by: fasteddie d on May 22, 2011, 10:59:18 PM
Well everyone's efforts were rewarded and we had a great day of fun .
It was a bit dodgy at the beginning with a very brief shower that took about thirty minutes to dry up .
There were a couple of times that the clouds creeped back and it looked like the day was going to be done only for the clouds to move back east and the sun start trying to make a apperance .
It never really did clear up, but it did'nt rain on us for the rest of the day either .
It was really cool seeing people tuning thier cars and trying different things to get faster laps .
Slowly during the practise sessions people would  group together and get some great battles going for many laps . It looks like we are just beginning a great season or out door on road .

We are going to be at the track next week

It was another absolutley perfect day for RC fun. Our group had their cars buzzing around the track by about noon time .
Because two major out of town races are coming many drivers were getting thier cars ready for battle with our friends over on Vancouver Island called irocc.
Title: Re: RRR Raceway Summer schedule
Post by: fasteddie d on July 15, 2011, 10:43:55 AM
We are back after attending another great IROCC Speed Weekend .

They had another large turnout with about sixteen of our local drivers supporting our friends in their efforts . Everyone had a really good time and went away with a smile on their face .
I think this is my sixth and it definitely won't be my last . It's always interesting listening to each drivers experiences after the race weekend and also the friendships that are made.
Many of the drivers meet only once or twice a year but over time have become good friends and are able to compete at a high level with great respect for each other . You could call Speed Weekend a really cool RC party . From TQ to the final position, there were friendship's formed with great battles but also in a very laid back atmosphere .

Our Annual Summer Challenge is coming Aug 6-7 and our friends from IROCC are going to be coming over to support us. It will be a great second chance for a lot of the racers .

Come on out and enjoy the weekend with us .

We are back from the big race at Timezone . There were about 38 1/8 th scale and about 30 1/10th scale . There were igt and electric as well. Some of us have been attending the race for the last couple of years and this year the Canadians did not disappoint .
 Our own Super Mario was able to bump up from the B main to the A of nitro touring car. Talk about nerve racking .What a sight to see our group support him from pitting to preparing his car for the A. The caliber of racers this year were the best of the best in north America so been able to bump to the A main is a massive feet in it self .

We got to see some old friends and got to meet the manufactured sponsored drivers like Ralph Burch , Mike swagger ,Scott Kimbrow and Paolo Morganti, just to name a few .If you love speed (and I am talking real speed )try to make it next .

   We are setting up the track this weekend so come on out and join the group for some fun in the sun and listen to all the stories from people like norm from Racetech that did some cool off road move just before the end of his 1/8 main .I won't try to explain as its something that you won't see again anytime soon or ken chan that was able to finish his main with only first gear without blowing up his engine. On a track this size that another feet to be scene . while have some fun in the sun.
