Late one afternoon the great airship leaves a box at the Ring! Travel has never been so fast...
Fritz Stroebl inspects the VRAA box. All looks to be in order...
Stroebl calls a driver's meeting for the upcoming VRAA race weekend.

Hill arrives fashionably late... Clark finishes his scrumpy.

The box looks to be in great shape! Crews will begin unpacking this week...

The Race

Anticipation... 
The noise, the smoke, the smell, the Green Flag!
Round 6 @ The Ring
R A C E R E S U L T S:
10.5v over three lanes for a total of 4 minutes in each lane or 12 minutes total race time. The same three drivers ran all cars in their respective lanes for the duration of the race;
No body parts broken although one mechanical gremlin affecting performance plagued an entry in his last heat, albeit still finishing the heat and race. There were 7 offs in total, all of a minor nature;


#5 (front axle) and #9 (pinion slip) should be repaired prior to next event - pending direction from race control and driver

A big thank you to our drivers, Kevin, Chuck & Bill, and to our marshals Doug, Mike, Fritz, Franz & Hermann for helping us enjoy an exciting race day here at the Ring!
