It's time for another round of "knife fight in a phone booth" races on the infamous BPR Kingleman track. Today's first race has 11 F1 entries ready to duel on the short, narrow, tricky road course.


image

D3's "benevolent dictator" Paul Sterrett's F1 entry.


image

Paul is one of the few D3 racers who prefers to use metal 64 pitch crown gears. This setup allows Paul to position the motor as close to the rear axle as possible.


image

Former AAR Team Manager for the '92-'93 IMSA GT champion, Gary Donahoe's F1 entry.


image

Gary is relatively new to D3, but his 1/1 racing background shows in his quick development in both chassis building and racing.


image

Former Team Rolling Hills member Keith Tanaka's entry.


image

This modified JK F1 chassis kit was relatively easy to build, just required narrowing of the chassis width to D3's max. of 1 3/8".


image

Slotblog's 68 Caddy, Nesta Szabo's F1 entry.


image

Beautifully designed/built F1 car by Joe Chevy.


image

Div. 2 Scale racer Jonathan Forsyth's F1 entry.


image

Jonathan's car was built by Richie Austin. This is the same car Jonathan drove in the Checkpoint Cup on the King track, so it's very lightweight and will be a handful to drive on the tight Kingleman track.


image

Dale Yamashita's newest F1 car uses a True Scale Lotus 49 body.


image

Dale's tried and true F1 chassis. Obviously, the Falcon 8 is only a joke (or is it?).


image

Dennis Samson's True Scale Matra F1.

Another well designed/built F1 chassis by Dennis.

Pennsylvania's Chris Radisich happened to be in town for some business and was able to race with us today.
