One month to go...I've got a nice roster to bring this year! ;)

I don't know what RCE's policy is on masks, or what it will be in the future, but for anyone traveling there, it would be prudent to bring a few masks just in case they are required.

I've been wondering about VONats this year - glad to see this post!!

I will lock-in the trip and start building a B2! :P
- And hopefully my Classics and Wheelie entries are ready to throw back down just like I picked them up off the track last year.


Last year the mask policy was: wear it while walking around, but could take it off while at your own pit area.

I could've swore that I made a post for this year's race. But I looked yesterday and realized I hadn't.

Was it me or did jumps seem a bit bigger and less vintage friendly than prior years. Looked like it on rclive but hard to say on video? What say the folks who were there?

I’m never one to complain, but they were tough, all of the doubles were killers if you didn’t hit them just right🤦‍♂️

Yeah I would not complain either, glad he hosts it. It was clear watching though the cars were not taking to them well and took some real driving so well done. And a leap of faith I would imagine each time you launched what would happen on crash landing. :mrgreen:
