Paul Sterrett prepared this car in Chris' honor.
Concours podium: L-R, Phil Nyland 2nd, Ryan Miller 1st, Paul Sterrett 3rd (Concours judging was done after the races which indicates how little damage these cars incur in this type of racing).
Ryan Miller's winning Concours Ferrari. Beautiful car Ryan! (Note: this is a modified coupe body).
Phil Nylands' 2nd place Concours entry (body painted by Tore Anderson). Hey Tore where did you get the 24th scale cigarette?
Paul Sterrett's 3rd place Concours entry dedicated to Chris Gallegos. Paul, your suppose to win it for Chris (just kidding! very nice gesture Paul).

Barney Poynor's winning car. This car was built by Ron Kiyomura. It's based on the original Champion frame from the same period ('66-'67).
Ron used silicon bronze rod for the main rails.
Interesting to see a heatsink being used with a TSRF home set motor. These motors run relatively cool compared to the TSR D3 motors.
