Default Q-25+C-40 & EF-1 Race, Mansfield, TX, 18 Oct

Howdy Q-25/C-40 & EF-1 Pylon Racers!

This should be our 4th Pylon Race for this year.
But as a lot of you know, Red Bull decided to have their Air Race the same weekend of the Richardson Race.

So this will be our 3rd Pylon Race for this year!
This will be Oct. 18th, 2014, at the Golden Triangle Club Field.
Registration will begin at 10 AM, 11 AM will be a short pilot meeting and then the 1st Heat Race.
All EF-1 Planes will be inspected by CD Jerry Stafford.
Either CD Gary James or myself will inspect the Q-25/C-40 planes.
We will alternate the race heats between Q-25/C-40 & EF-1.
Registration will be $15 per event and $5 for lunch.

Jim Fulton Field, 2820 Seeton Road, Grand Prairie, TX 75054.
GPS either: 32.569747, -97.044464 or N 32 deg, 34 min, 11.09 sec, W 97 deg, 2 min, 40.07 sec.

Hope to see ya'll there!!

Semper Fi, Gung Ho, & Oorah!

Fairly good turnout for race #3. Weather was very nice, except that the 5-10 mph wind was out of the North, requiring a "scatter pylon" start. A couple of "dumb thumb" crashes and one midair, so all in all, the carnage was low.
