Please note the earlier starting time. Also, remember that we're racing 2 classes for the first time. HOPRA SS and Indiana Brass Jet. The new Viper ceramic motor magnets are legal in SS.

Entry fee is still just $7 and that includes food and soft drinks.

We kicked off the season at Tony McWilliams' spacious HO racing complex with 14 racers. The Cobra was well-prepped, fast and challenging as usual. This was the first time we've raced two classes and it went off with relatively few glitches. The one-hour practice session for each class seemed to work pretty well for all concerned. First race up was our new IN Brass Jet class. A couple racers chose to sit this out, but those who did participate enjoyed some very close racing as you might expect. Second race up was Super Stock and it was a wild and woolly affair. All in all, it was a great day of racing!

The second IN HOPRA event of the new season is in the books. We had nine racers turn out to compete on TMAC's Riverside road course. This little bullring of a track always provides lots of close racing excitement, not to mention fender-rubbin' and wicked pile-ups! The results and podium pics are attached. .

Thanks to all who joined the racing fun yesterday and thanks to TMAC for hosting!

A bit late posting this...
We had another great turnout for the 18th Gobbler Endurance Challenge! We had 18 racers divided up into 5 teams. This year we tried something different in choosing who would be on what team. Since we had so many 'visitors' for the event, we went with a loosely based 'home' and 'visitors' type format. The cars were once again BSRT G3RS chassis, expertly prepared by 'Fast Phil' Walleck. The cars all raced virtually trouble-free all day! Great job Phil! At the end of 4-hours, Sum Ting Wong took 1st Place, followed by Stealers Wheel, Turn and Burn, Brute Force and III. And, the Home team came out on top over the Visitors team. Plus, we added a bit more spice to the occasion this year with a voluntary $$ pitch-in purse that ended up being over $200 thanks to the generosity of the racers. A large portion was awarded the the winning team of Sum Ting Wong and the remaining was awarded to drivers whose names were randomly drawn from a hat. Thanks to everyone who joined in the fun, with special thanks to our host, Curt Thompson who provided tasty, homemade vegetable soup/stew, drinks and cookies and also to Fred Williams who brought a potent batch of homemade chili.

The next regular IN HOPRA Series Race originally scheduled for December 14th (that would be today) has been moved to Saturday, January 4th.
This is due to Phil's recent move to a new home in Linton, Indiana. The exact address and directions to follow.
Stay tuned!

Thanks to all the racers who made the trek to Phil's Little Rascals Raceway yesterday. Big shout out to Dave and Ryan for making the trip over from Columbus, OH. Phil's massive WizzTrack looked very impressive in its new location and it proved to be a challenge for all racers as usual. Phil and crew burned to midnight oil to get everything ready and they deserve huge kudos for a job very well done. Lots of pit space and great track conditions welcomed the racers. Not to mention donuts! The IN Brass Jets has the first one hour practice session, then it was Super Stock for the second one hour practice, followed by a tasty lunch spread of pizza for lunch. Then it was time for racing! Here's the results:
