Enter the Steve Semeraro Exhibition Class and win a car kit! We had a TON of fun with this last year so for this year I bought a new video system to make it even better. All proceeds will be donated to the American Diabetes Foundation in Steve's name. Last year we were able to raise $150, let's beat it this year!


Steve Semeraro Memorial Class (exhibition)
Drivers to take 5 laps around the course using only a Fat Shark vision system with goggles and a camera mounted in our prepared vehicle. The racer with the best overall time will win and the fastest lap will be used as a tiebreaker. The winner will receive a new car kit (to be announced) and the proceeds for the class go be made into a donation to the American Diabetes Foundation in Steve's name!

Thanks Kaiser for your concern and hospitality, for me personal that is all taken care of by my old friend (Bo Wallen also a member). He lives about 30 minutes north of Bethel and he will also pick me up at the NYC airport. I hope there will be more guys from abroad that consider doing the trip to Bethel.

So I’m looking forward to this and I hope it would be great fun! 8)

The plan today is to run in the Classic class with a COX/Kyosho Tomahawk but much can happened during the next 5 month. :mrgreen:

At first I was also thinking to run in the 4WD class to, but I have decided only to run in one class. The resend is that I like to have time to look around, watch the race and talk to people in the pit. :D

Barring some kind of disaster, I'm totally there. Had a blast last year. Erich, I'll bring a fist full of $5 bills for the Steve Semeraro class ;)

RC10 Team Car for 2wd buggy
RC10 Team Truck for Stadium Truck
Yokomo 870c for 4wd buggy (Avante won't behave - switching to Yokomo)
Might bring my '94 YZ10 for the Conours event. We'll see...

Quick question about the 17.5 motors for this. I don't want to start a big hulabaloo, but will the Trinity D3.5 motors be legal here? I have one of these and a Tekin Redline. If you can let me know beforehand if the D3.5 is not legal for this event, then I can just pick up another Redline.

I only sponsor 1 thing a year, and this is it: Either 2WD or Classic. I have never actually gone to any event to meet any customers, and I doubt it'll be possible, but IF all the stars line up I'd REALLY like to attend! :D (Also, I can't trust Erich to return my banners, so that's another reason... :wink: )

I am accepting donations in trade for parts to facilitate such: Watch for Emails. :roll:

Also doubful I'll enter, as I can't drive for crap, and my beer tummy, bald spot (Most would call it a "head") and general attire/personality will give folks enough to laugh at...... :oops: Chris REC
