Default Looking for some fast guys

The racing scene has been heating up in the Carolinas for a while now and there are a lot of people talking about fast planes and what type of things make them faster.
I would like to invite all pilots who love speed and think they have a pretty fast or REELIE fast plane to the 4th annual Carolina Speed Rally on June 25th.

This is a unique rules free event that is all about max speed. We will give you a hard copy certificate of how fast you really are.
The event will be held in Hudson, NC (a little north of Hickory) and has been a huge success in the past. We welcome everything from EDF and hotliners to pylon racers and hot rodded sportfliers. Just no turbines please, we have a fabric runway.

I will post the flyer shortly with more details. If you are interested stay tuned to this thread, do a seach of previous events or take a look at www.caldwellareomodelers.com and click the events tab.

If you have ever wondered how fast you are going this is the event you don't want to miss!

Sounds like a great time! I wish I lived within a 10 hour drive because I would not miss it.

DE, I got the inspiration for this event by flying out to SoCal to hang with a bunch of the Revver Brotherhood on Rabbit Lake a few years ago. I had a great time with those guys and wanted to do something like that here.

It's like a retro Bonneville Salt flats meet you read about in old Hot Rod magazines except for model airplanes.

If you do a search for the Speed Rally you can find old threads, stories and some great pics.

Last month's Model Aviation also had a nice article on it in the District IV report.
