Wednesday’s running at the 2008 Winter Nationals in Florida turned out to be a wash out with the rain coming down all morning, eventually stopping around 12 am. With the track starting to dry, around 2pm Jim Rice went on track to dry it with his super drying machine (see picture below) and then sprayed sugar water on the track. Racers were given free practice until 4pm or so and then the organisers continued with the programme, starting with round 2 of the Masters class. I’m not 100% sure, but I believe that not all of the 1/8th scale heats from round 2 have been completed and the organisers are hoping to finish this round as well as get 3 more rounds in on Thursday, with the club given permission to run under flood lights. The 1/10th 200mm class managed to complete their 2nd round and it was Paolo Morganti that has moved to the top of the pack with a quick 2nd round run to move ahead of Paul LeMieux who drops to 2nd, while DJ Apolaro (above) now sits in 3rd. Thanks to The Border for sending us the information.
