Gingerman Raceway

May 16, 2005


Once again, another very well run NITRO date at Gingerman Raceway.  Thanks go to Tom Tracey for organizing another great event.

We had a slow start in the morning, both from the cold weather and the over abundance of Bell's Amber the night before while camping at the track.  Overall, the day went very well, despite the fact that the track didn't fare very well over the winter.   There were lots of new bumps in new places, and it took everyone a couple of sessions to get their suspensions sorted to deal with the track conditions.

Many thanks also go to Chad and Newt for taking the pictures included below.


Taking it easy in the afternoon to scrub in a new set of tires:  (Pic 1) (Pic 2 - Peace Man) (Pic 3)

OK, they're scrubbed in.  Let's head through turn 1:  (Pic 1) (Pic 2)
